Stock Up/Stock Down Report (7-25 through 7-31)

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

Ronald Jones, RB, Bucs

ESPN’s Jenna Laine projects Jones to open the season as Tampa’s starter. His odds got a boost when rookie Ke’Shawn Vaughn landed on the COVID reserve list on Monday. We also learned this week that Jones packed on another 7 pounds this offseason. And no, we’re not too concerned about the addition of LeSean McCoy.

Curtis Samuel, WR, Panthers

Samuel was 1 of the most misutilized WRs in the NFL last year. It sounds like new HC Matt Rhule is ready to change that in 2020. He talked up Samuel’s versatility "at RB, slot, outside” and said he wants to use him “like he was at Ohio State.” Samuel started his college career at RB and carried 97 times with 74 receptions in his final season with the Buckeyes. Don’t bank on anywhere close to that much rushing volume this year. But even 20-25 carries would add a lot of fantasy value.
