Identifying bounce-back or breakout players for the following season is a long-standing strategy to maximizing roster value in the offseason. Here are my favorite bets for a value uptick in 2019:
Matthew Stafford has plummeted to the finish in production and appeal in 2018 and is poised to be outside the top-18 quarterbacks in dynasty ADP for the offseason. Stafford has hardly had any favors around though with Marvin Jones Jr out with injury, Golden Tate traded, Kerryon Johnson hurt of late, and minimal tight end presence in the offseason. Kenny Golladay looks miscast as a true No.1 receiver and the offseason cannot arrive soon enough for the Lions to get healthy and potentially add a weapon or two around Stafford. Established and proven quarterbacks coming off a down year are some of the best investments in dynasty and Stafford qualifies for 2019.
Andy Dalton finishes the season on injured reserve and another quarterback who had his best weapons taken away by injury (A.J. Green, Tyler Eifert). John Ross has been of minimal impact through two seasons despite his high draft pedigree to add frustration to Dalton's supporting cast. With Eifert and Green both healthy for the opening month of the season, Dalton averaged 25 PPG and a mere 16 PPG over the rest of the season. Dalton is outside the top-25 quarterbacks for early 2019 startup ADP and look for the Bengals to add a tight end in the offseason plus bring back a healthy A.J. Green.
