There it was, the entire season good, bad, and ugly has led us to this very week. The week where we see if we really built that championship team we dreamed about over four months ago.

Whether you’re in redraft or in dynasty, one thing is for sure. It’s Super Bowl Week! That makes this as crucial as ever. Are you ready to find the diamond in the rough who will help you ascend the throne of King of your league? Have no fear, FootballGuys is here!
High Dollar Stocks Trending Up
DE Nick Bosa: Bosa is just one of those dudes that no matter the matchup, will likely produce for your teams. This season he has accumulated 48 tackles, two forced fumbles, and 17.5 sacks! He is the current DE2 and is having a year to remember. He has only had one game with less than six points excluding a game he missed due to injury. Last week was a 25-point outburst in the semi-finals. If Bosa is on your team, you play him and you enjoy every minute!
LB Alex Singleton: The Denver Broncos linebacker position may be the most valuable in all of fantasy football. No matter who the starter was, the position scored in bunches. Right now, Singleton carries that position and he has had a stellar end-of-the-season run. Since Week 10, Singleton has scored Double-digit points in four of the seven games. The other three were nine-point games. He has been a megastar in IDP and had 20 total tackles last week in the money weeks! If you have him, he absolutely must start!
LB Bobby Wagner: Sometimes, young and flashy is better served for the bench. Especially if you have ole reliable Wagner. Wagner has been an IDP staple since he entered the league in 2012. While his overall year statistics haven’t been what he produced in his prime, he has had a great year, specifically down the stretch. In three of his last four games, he has had 15+ points in standard-scoring leagues. Wagner is still dat dude, so make sure he is in your lineups. Don’t overthink the easy ones.
LB Nick Bolton: It was cause for concern when you see a dominant player post back-to-back bad weeks, Bolton being the unfortunate target of negative market analysis. Well, we need to re-route our ship. Bolton bounced back in a big way with a 17-tackle performance and has proved to us that he must be in your lineups at all times. As if you didn’t already know this, it was concerning that as soon as the playoffs started his statistics dipped, well he more than made up for it in the semifinals. Bolton is more than poised for a championship run for your team.
LB Roquan Smith: Smith continued his dominant run since the Week 10 bye with another 15+ point game. He had 15 total tackles giving him back-to-back double-digit tackle weeks. He now has 145 tackles on the year with 4.5 sacks and five defended passes. The 25-year-old linebacker is everything you would want in a dynasty player and in the short term can help you win your title. No matter the matchup or weather, Smith translates to wins. Period.
