Every single fantasy football season, there are High-Upside Players that enter the season with super-big expectations, yet they either start off slow, or they aren’t given a chance by their coaching staff.
Sometimes these players never rebound into predicted form, and other times these players get a later chance than expected, but do eventually thrive.>
What 2 Overlooked Players Could Explode Soon?
I’ll give you two…
Derrick Henry and Nick Chubb.
The strange part is that both of these players concern me for the long-term, meaning I don’t trust that either has super-long dynasty value. They are the kind of players that have injury histories, and they are aggressive rushers that abuse their bodies, something that does not mix well with being oft-injured.
However, none of that matters when analyzing things with a redraft-geared thinking cap on, and I think both have insane upside given the value. Because, that’s what it’s all about, Upside vs Cost.
Here’s the deal… Henry and Chubb are getting dropped this week in multiple redraft leagues that I’m in. This might not be the case in all of your leagues, but check waivers and make sure you don’t miss this chance to stash one, or both, of these big-impact rushers. They can win you a league. Both easily have low-end RB1 appeal if starting for their teams. If not dropped, take creative stabs at them via trade. Keep in mind, folks… Derrick Henry had high second-round value (that would have inched toward first-round value) just before the Titans acquired Dion Lewis this past off-season. There was a reason general expectations were high on the guy.
Now go get after it!
