The Gut Check No.460: Stretch-Run Candidates

In this week's Gut Check, Matt Waldman profiles four players varying degrees of potential as stretch-run starters.

Some players emerge from anonymity to carry your fantasy squad through the playoffs. Others overcome difficult beginnings, benefit from team adjustments, and turn on the afterburners that propel fantasy players to championships. And many offer timely outputs that solidify a small hole to help a good fantasy team earn consistently great production.

They are all versions of stretch-run candidates, and they range from pass-catching backs in offenses facing weekly deficits on the scoreboard (Marcel Reece a few years ago to Jalen Richard in the present) to marquee talents whose situations appeared hopeless during the first two months of the season (Russell Wilson almost every year). This week, we'll examine four stretch-run candidates coming from radically different situations who could help your team.
