Fantasy Island: Deserted Players in Fantasy Football Dynasty Leagues


Rodney Dangerfield and Aretha Franklin made fortunes off it, but there are some fantasy football players who aren’t getting enough right now.

With the season right around the corner, we take a look at one player from each offensive position who is being undervalued in dynasty league circles.

While some of these players may not be considered “elite,” they’re all capable of helping a team win games in both the short and long term.


Jason Campbell, QB, OAK

Campbell has been left for dead in some dynasty leagues.

In fact, he was taken at No. 208 in the recent experts league draft we participated in with other prominent fantasy sites.

More than anything, Campbell was a product of his environment in Washington. He was constantly learning a new offense, yet expected to carry a team with few offensive weapons.

His career numbers of 10,860 yards, and 55 touchdowns against just 38 interceptions are pretty impressive considering his past surroundings. Throw in a quarterback rating of 82.3 percent and you have a surprisingly solid player to those not paying attention.

A fresh start in Oakland is exactly what Campbell needs. He’ll have a learning curve again, but won’t be looking over his shoulder this season.

Help from Darren McFadden and Michael Bush would help. As would the evolution of his receiving corps, outside of emerging star Zach Miller.

Regardless, Campbell enters the season as an underrated fantasy quarterback.

Expect him to emerge as a solid No. 2 option in dynasty leagues.
