Dynasty stashes can be hard to find. By the time the fourth round of your rookie draft comes around you might be looking for a player or two to stash for the future. Some fantasy players will consider these options dart throws. I like to look at them as an option to get a good return of value.

For this article, I am looking at running backs that are being drafted in the fourth round or later of the rookie drafts that I have drafted in, that could end up contributing somewhere down the down. They are players that I am looking to stash for a year or two to see how the team plans on using them and how they handle the opportunity they are given.

1. Dynasty Stash: Lamical Perine, New York Jets

The New York Jets took Lamical Perine in the fourth round of the 2020 draft. While Perine was at Florida, the Gators didn’t run the ball much. He was the leading rusher in his Sophmore, Junior, and Senior seasons but never had more than 136 attempts. According to College Football Stats and History, Perine finished his career at Florida with 2485 yards and 22 scores on the ground with 72 receptions for 674 yards and 8 more touchdowns through the air.

The reason I have Perine as a dynasty stash, is because of his stats his senior season 676 yards rushing, 40 receptions, 262 yards receiving and 11 total scores. The yearly trade speculation of Le’Veon Bell is another factor as well. Perine currently has a couple of players ahead of him on the depth chart. After Bell, there is the ageless Frank Gore and Kenneth Dixon to name a few. Gore is not going to be the long term answer in New York and Dixon has failed to produce. Perine could get an opportunity to be Bell’s successor and take over if Le’Veon takes time off.

2. Dynasty Stash: Lynn Bowden Jr, Las Vegas

Lynn Bowden Jr can do it all. At Kentucky, he rushed for 1468 yards and 13 scores in his junior year. Bowden Jr also caught 114 receptions for 1303 yards and 6 more scores. He also lined up under center for the Wildcats as well. The third-round pick by the Raiders could be a nice compliment to Josh Jacobs, more than likely taking the field during passing downs or if Jon Gruden wants to run any Wildcat formation plays.

Given these stats, some must wonder how Bowden Jr is a dynasty stash. When coming out of college, there were questions as to what position he would be playing. Was he a running back, a wide receiver, special teams player or a quarterback? The Raiders said he was going to be a running back almost instantly. As a running back, he will join second-year running back Josh Jacobs in the backfield. I would draft Bowden Jr and stash him with hopes that he could either be a change of pace running back or one that catches passes out of the backfield and could be an impact, like Tarik Cohen.

3. Dynasty Stash: DeeJay Dallas, Seattle

Seattle drafted DeeJay Dallas in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. The former University of Miami running back, joins Chris Carson, Carlos Hyde, and Rashaad Penny in the Seahawks backfield. Penny is still recovering from an injury suffered last season and might miss the start of the season. The Seahawks will be the fifth team that Hyde has been on in four seasons. Carson will be an unrestricted free agent after the 2020 season.

DeeJay Dallas ran for just 1527 yards and 17 touchdowns in Miami, however, he had a 5.8 yard per carry average. Because of Seattle’s current depth and his overall production in Miami, DeeJay Dallas is being drafted in the fourth round of Superflex rookie drafts. For that value, he could be a good player to stash until next year and see if he could end up taking over for Chris Carson after his contract expires.
