Stock Up/Stock Down Report (8-11 through 8-17)

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


Sam Darnold, QB, Jets

Darnold has fared well through 2 preseason outings, completing 72.4% of his passes with 1 TD and 1 INT. The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta wrote this week that it'd be an "upset" if Darnold isn't the Jets' Week 1 starter. He’s climbed the rankings but is still only an option in 2-QB leagues.

Josh Allen, QB, Bills

He was the 2nd QB into Friday night’s preseason game in Cleveland — behind A.J. McCarron, who broke his collarbone. Allen played well, completing 9 of 13 passes for 60 yards and a score. He has a good chance to be Buffalo’s Week 1 starter.

Christian McCaffrey, RB, Panthers

McCaffrey has seen feature-back usage through 2 preseason games, playing 28 of 35 snaps (80%) with the 1st-team offense. He busted off a 71-yard TD and caught 4 balls in Friday night’s exhibition vs. Miami. It looks like McCaffrey is in for a big spike in rushing volume this season.
