Buy Low, Sell High: Dynasty Stash Running Backs

A look at the best running backs to add in dynasty leagues

As we get to the weeks that are usually past the trade deadline in dynasty leagues (I am in one without a trade deadline, which is fun, but crazy during the playoffs when teams get into arms races), it’s time to look ahead to next year and target speculative players to fill end of the bench spots when we are eliminated from the playoffs. We’ll go position-by-position over the next four weeks and separate players out into Snorkel, Scuba, and Submarine levels to serve dynasty players of all levels. Week 2: Running Backs


Jamaal Williams, GB - He should be rostered everywhere as a high-value handcuff, but you never know. The Packers can’t afford to keep both him and Aaron Jones, so Williams could get a promotion in size of role after he signs his next contract in 2021.

Gus Edwards, BAL - Edwards has proven himself as one of the more nimble power backs in the league and he could get an offer sheet as a restricted free agent next year if he’s not signed to a high-level tender, which would signify that he’s a big part of the Ravens plans next year.

Le'Veon Bell, KC - Bell is probably rostered on name-brand value alone, but double-check. He’s not the back he was at his peak, but Bell is still good and versatile enough to play a fantasy-relevant role in the right spot next year.

Kalen Ballage, LAC - The Chargers might have a new regime in place next year, but if they don’t, Ballage is a strong candidate to be brought back and possibly occupy the #2 running back spot. The game has slowed down for him and his gifts were more apparent in recent games, including advanced skills as a receiver.
