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, tight end, one of the most fun positions to scavenge for diamonds in the rough with its numerous converts and long-term projects
Dawson Knox, BUF - Knox should have been drafted or at least added in dynasty leagues, but double check because his lack of splash games this year could make him overlooked. He has elite measureables for the position and he’s developing with a young quarterback who should grow with him.
Hayden Hurst, BAL - Hurst is clearly behind Mark Andrews in the Ravens target pecking order, but with a healthier second year under his belt and more expansion in the Ravens passing game, he could become a sometimes starter in fantasy leagues, and Andrews spent all season on the injury report so that’s another path to instant value down the line as Hurst had a 61-yard score when Andrews went out earlier this season.
