Risers & Fallers

Stock Up/Stock Down Report (8-5 through 8-11)

By Jared Smola 1:08pm EDT 8/12/17


Note: You won’t find Ezekiel Elliott, Darren McFadden or any Rams or Bills in this article. We tackled those situations in separate articles:

Fantasy Impact: Ezekiel Elliott’s Suspension

Fantasy Impact: Sammy Watkins to the Rams

Fantasy Impact: Jordan Matthews heads to Buffalo


Stock Up: These players have moved up the Draft Sharks rankings over the past week.

Jay Cutler, QB, Dolphins

He un-retired to sign a 1-year deal in Miami, where he’ll start in place of the injured Ryan Tannehill. Cutler struggled before a season-ending shoulder injury last season, but he completed 64.4% of his attempts with 21 TDs and 11 INTs the year prior. That season came under then-Bears OC and now-Dolphins HC Adam Gase. That familiarity will help. But Cutler will be piloting a run-heavy offense and is no more than a low-end QB2.

Trevor Siemian, QB, Broncos

He’s off to an early lead in the QB competition — “by default,” according to Yahoo's Charlie Robinson. Siemian has remained steady-if-unspectacular, while Paxton Lynch has failed to take a step forward. It’s too early to call this race, but Siemian is the Broncos QB to target right now late in best-ball or 2-QB drafts.

Thomas Rawls, RB, Seahawks

It continues to look like Rawls is neck-and-neck with Eddie Lacy for the early-down job in Seattle. The duo split 1st-team reps during a mock game this week, according to ESPN's Sheil Kapadia. Rawls is well worth a look at his 13th-round ADP.
