At this time of year, we should be stocking our dynasty benches with long-term upside plays if we are out of the playoff hunt, and even if we are in the playoffs, it’s time to cut your depth to a lean and mean level and still maximize your bench spots for future growth. For the next four weeks, we’ll look at each position and sort out end-of-season dynasty stashes and players to monitor next offseason into Snorkel, Scuba, and Submarine levels of league depth. This week, running back, where December we remember that depth charts can get turned upside down in the blink of an eye. For the purposes of this exercise, we are assuming that late-season waiver wire adds like Gus Edwards, Spencer Ware, Jaylen Samuels, Justin Jackson, and Jeff Wilson are rostered in all dynasty leagues.
John Kelly, LAR - Kelly should have gone earlier in the draft and will turn heads if he gets a chance to give Todd Gurley a breather down the stretch. He has outstanding contact balance and hands out of the backfield. Malcolm Brown is a restricted free agent next year and the Rams could keep him, but Kelly will be a coveted stash if what we saw at Tennessee translates to the pros, and he should be the prime handcuff to Gurley by 2020 at the latest.
