Every year at this time, one of my favorite duties as a dynasty owner is to stash away players who could sprout growth in 2018 to fill up roster spots I had been using for depth.

Calvin Johnson, FA - Yes, Calvin Johnson. There was some puffs of smoke around a possible return to the NFL this preseason, and there’s a whole offseason for the Lions to pursue some compensation and Johnson to pursue a team that can give him a better chance for a Super Bowl run. Even a small sliver of a percent chance that you could have a rested Calvin Johnson on your roster is worth a roster spot during the offseason.
