Let's take a quick look at a few linebackers, defensive linemen, and defensive backs who are either good grab-and-stash types or those that you should target in trades. Hope you enjoy the article and it opens your eyes to some of the gems that can be found on your leagues' waiver wires!
Kwon Alexander (NOS): Yes he’s been on this list recently but I continue to see him on the wire in many of my leagues, and with Demario Davis being 32 years old (33 in about a month), grabbing Alexander is wise. Alexander’s stats have been solid over the past month, and should Davis ever go down with injury, you gotta think Alexander would instantly achieve high-end LB2 status, if not better. A perfect speculative pickup that won’t burn you since you can also plug him in as a lower-level LB3 in most leagues right now.
Blake Lynch (MIN): Another repeat here, but bears mentioning once again because he’s a) available in a lot of leagues and b) stands to benefit if Eric Kendricks or Anthony Barr were to ever miss significant time. With both Kendricks and Barr out last week, Lynch went buck-wild, tallying six solo stops, three assists, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and to boot, a pair of sacks. He’s just 24 and in his second season, so if you add him, he’s DTS-eligible in most dynasty formats. A nice stash in case Kendricks or Barr get significant injuries or possibly move on somehow.
