Fantasy Buy Low Targets
Written by FFToolbox reader: Adam Filadelfo
Every season there are always a few players that fantasy owners think can produce; those players sometimes fall flat on their faces, leaving the owners that drafted them looking silly and dropping in the standings. Owners hedged a lot on those certain players and for one reason or another, it just did not work out. The following season, those same fantasy owners tend to stay away from the players that burned them the previous season. These players are what are called buy low candidates. Players that should produce based on previous accomplishments, but just had a down year. They can be drafted much later than their ADP (average draft position) would suggest (or if in an auction draft, may go for a much lower price than they should). Fantasy owners can have a short memory at times and it all comes down to what have you done for me lately?
FFToolbox.com is currently running a Dynasty Contest, the Dynasty Football World Championship, that allows fantasy owners to choose one quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end, one kicker, one DST and 2 flex positions for a start-up dynasty league. Based on 2013 fantasy production, let's take a look at which players can possibly fall into the category of buy low, regardless of how long term the pick might be.
