Weekly Stock Report
Whose Rising and Falling
- Josh Allen (Buffalo): He looks way better than I thought he would. He's off target often but also makes throws no one else on their roster can make. No one has seperated themselves, so I believe he'll win the job. His targets are as bad as they get, but he should have a great future there in Buffalo.
- Carlos Hyde (Cleveland): This guy is always underrated. He's been getting almost all of the first team reps. I believe he can hold off Chubb for this year and could be playing for another team next year.
- Jamaal Williams (Green Bay): I believe he is the best running back in Green Bay. He is not as explosive as Aaron Jones, but he is more dependable and a better pass blocker, and protecting Rodgers is most important. He'll start off strong and keep the job when Jones comes back from suspension.
- Jordan Wilkins (Indianapolis): The running back situation in Indianapolis is a mess, but my chips are in on Wilkins to win the job. Hines is having a hard time with the playbook and Mack is often injured and can't run between the tackles. It may take some time, but Wilkins should win this job.
- James Connor (Pittsburg): He's looked like his college self this preseason. I just love the way he runs with power and balance. He's a stash right now, of course. But the perfect stash since this is likely Bell's last year in Pittsburg.
- Calvin Ridley (Atlanta): Scouts called him the most pro-ready wide receiver in the draft. It appears to be true. Atlanta is using him a lot in the preseason. He may become Matt Ryan's number two sooner rather than later.
- Chris Godwin (Tampa Bay): Beat reporters say that Godwin is going to be targeted more than Jackson. Some even think he'd could out target Evans. There are too many targets to share in Tampa Bay with Brate and Howard in the mix too, but he has the talent to rise above them all.
- Taywan Taylor (Tennessee): Evan Silva may have started this hype train, but Taywan has fed it. He's way more involved than he was last year and he has Mariota's trust. I trust Matt LaFleur to get the ball to his talent.
- Kelvin Benjamin (Tampa Bay): I hate to admit it because I have never been a fan, but Kelvin looks good so far. He was at his best with a strong-armed wild-throwing Cam Newton. Maybe he can be the same with Josh Allen who plays a lot like Cam.
- Courtland Sutton (Denver): I was wrong on Sutton. I did not think he would transition well to the pros, but he sure has. He is already starting on the outside and has made a ton of plays in practice and in preseason games. He's going to be a red zone weapon.
- Dallas Goeddert (Philadelphia): I own Ertz everywhere, and Goeddert makes me nervous. He already looks like a monster and understands the playbook well. He's not going to be Ertz's back up. They are going to be on the field at the same time.
- Lamar Jackson (Baltimore): The hype bubble has burst. He looked awful on Monday. He's going to watch Flacco this year and maybe years to come.
- Devontae Booker (Denver): Freeman just looks better. Denver keeps saying they're committed to Booker and he starts the preseason games, but everyone sees the writing on the wall. Phillip Lindsay may even beat him out as the pass catching back.
- Nyheim Hines (Indianapolis): He's reportedly having a hard time learning the playbook and picking up blitzes. Andrew Luck can have none of that.
- Sammy Watkins (Kansas City): I've just not seen the connection with Mahomes so far. He's apparently having trouble learning the offense too.
- Rishard Matthews (Tennnesse): His surgery and the rise of Taywan Taylor move him down quite a bit. Plus he has not been in camp to learn the new offense. He may struggle to find the starting line-up upon his returm.
- Alshon Jeffery (Philadelphia): How can I not move him down when he is not practicing or playing? This has become a normal thing for him. He can't be trusted as a top 20 dynasty WR.
- Gerald Everett (LA Rams): I have Everett in several leagues and have held on to him, but I am reaching my breaking point. He needs to show some flash. We've not seen it yet, and I am getting tired of waiting for him to be the next "Jordan Reed."
