Stock Up/Stock Down Report (8-10 through 8-16)

By Jared Smola 9:08am EDT 8/17/19


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

Tom Brady, QB, Patriots

What does WR Josh Gordon’s return mean for Brady? Get this: Brady averaged 10.6 yards per attempt targeting Gordon last season vs. 7.2 yards per attempt targeting everyone else. In Gordon’s 11 games last year, Brady ranked 12th among QBs in fantasy points. He still sits in QB2 territory in our rankings but is another viable target if you’re waiting until the later rounds to grab your QB.

Chris Carson, RB, Seahawks

More buzz this week on Carson playing an expanded role in the passing game this season. HC Pete Carroll talked up his hands, and OC Brian Schottenheimer said he’d like to get Carson in the 50-target range this season. That’d more than double the 24 targets he saw a year ago.

Sony Michel, RB, Patriots

While rookie Damien Harris battles a hand/wrist injury, Michel has enjoyed a healthy August. The Boston Herald's Kevin Duffy wrote this week that "it's pretty clear" that Michel remains the Patriots' lead ball-carrier. And we’ve heard that he might be in for a bit more work in the passing game this year.
