Stock Up/Stock Down Report (8-1 through 8-7)

By Jared Smola 10:08pm EDT 8/7/20

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

Chris Carson, RB, Seahawks

He avoided the PUP list to open camp — a great sign after spending the offseason recovering from last December’s fractured hip. Barring a setback, Carson should open the season as Seattle's clear lead back.

Ronald Jones, RB, Bucs

He makes an appearance here for the 2nd straight week after HC Bruce Arians said that Jones is the "main guy" in his backfield and will "carry the load.” If that’s the case, his ceiling approaches RB1 territory in what should be a high-scoring Bucs offense.

Adrian Peterson and Antonio Gibson, RBs, Washington

These 2 guys sit atop Washington's depth chart after Derrius Guice's release on Friday. The veteran Peterson figures to open the season as the lead back and could stick there if Gibson proves unready. That makes AP a viable -- although boring -- pick in the double-digit rounds of fantasy drafts. Gibson is the upside play: the 6'0, 228-pound rookie with 4.3 speed. He carried just 33 times across 2 seasons at Memphis, though, so it's uncertain how big a role he's ready for.

Preston Williams, WR, Dolphins

It was a week full of good news for Williams. On Monday, HC Brian Flores announced that Williams was “cleared for football activity” after last November’s ACL tear. That seemingly puts him on track for Week 1. Then, Dolphins WRs Albert Wilson and Allen Hurns opted out of the 2020 season. Neither was a serious threat to Williams’ starting job — but their absences open up more targets.
