Buy Low, Sell High: Early Offseason Buy Low Shopping List

A look at players to target in dynasty leagues when trading picks up early in the offseason.

The trading season is over for most leagues, so at this point in the year, this column shifts its focus to the future. Starting in Week 13, I’ll write up my favorite players to stash at snorkel, scuba, and submarine level in dynasty position by position through Week 16. This week, I wanted to create a preliminary list of players who are rostered already but should have a big arrow pointing up for 2021. Think of it as a buy-low list when offseason trades start, of course pending what happens from here on out.

Preston Williams, WR, MIA - Somehow for the second straight year, Williams suffered a season-ending injury during his breakout game. This time it was a foot injury and while he can technically return this year, I wouldn’t count on it. Williams' best half of the year - he had four catches for 60 yards and a touchdown in the first twenty minutes of the game - just happened to coincide with Tua Tagovailoa’s second start, pointing towards a budding connection between the two. He was also just rounding into form after his 2019 ACL tear during his first two-touchdown game. Williams fell out of the draft because of character concerns, but he is projecting as a future alpha outside and downfield. As long as these injuries don’t rob him of anything, he is destined to be a foundational piece in this offense.

Phillip Lindsay, RB, DEN - Lindsay can’t do any more to show that he’s the best back in Denver than he has. He has also shown he can be a receiving back again this year, but the playcalling hasn’t embraced him in the passing game. Every move the Broncos have made indicates that they don’t believe him in as a lead back, but his next time might feel differently. He might even draw a restricted free agent offer sheet if the Broncos don’t protect him with a first-round tender. If Lindsay lands in the right place, his value could take off.
