Stock Up/Stock Down Report (8-19 through 8-25)

By Jared Smola 9:08am EDT 8/26/17


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

Trevor Siemian, QB, Broncos

Siemian was named Denver’s starter this week after out-performing Paxton Lynch in camp and the preseason. He’s just a low-end QB2 in fantasy, though. Siemian ranked 26th at his position in fantasy points per game last year.

DeShone Kizer, QB, Browns

Kizer will start Cleveland’s 3rd preseason game, positioning him as the leader in the clubhouse for the Week 1 nod. The rookie has been impressive so far, averaging 8.3 yards per attempt with 1 TD and 0 INTs — plus 47 rushing yards and a score — through 2 exhibitions. That rushing ability could make him a spot-start option this season.

Kareem Hunt, RB, Chiefs

Hunt moved up the rankings twice this week. First after his 63-total-yard effort with the 1st-team offense in the 2nd preseason game. Then again after Spencer Ware injured his knee in the 3rd exhibition. Early reports are that Ware avoided a season-ending injury, but he’s still iffy for Week 1. Hunt could take the lead job and run with it.

Chris Carson, RB, Seahawks

This kid is for real. He’s been Seattle’s most impressive RB this preseason, averaging 4.4 yards per carry, 16.0 yards per catch and scoring twice. Carson out-snapped Eddie Lacy with the 1st-team offense in the 3rd exhibition. (Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise didn’t play.) The rookie has earned himself a Week 1 role and is worth a shot near the end of your draft.
