Stock Up/Stock Down Report (8-22 through 8-28)

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

Cam Akers, RB, Rams

RB Darrell Henderson suffered a hamstring injury last weekend. HC Sean McVay expects him to be ready for Week 1 — but the missed practice time just makes Akers a better bet to open the season as the Rams’ lead back. We don’t expect the rookie to relinquish that job.

Damien Harris, RB, Patriots

He made another move up our rankings with another strong week at camp. RB Sony Michel returned to practice on Wednesday after May foot surgery — but Harris continued getting the majority of the 1st-team reps. He remains the favorite to open the season as New England’s lead back.

Nyheim Hines, RB, Colts

He’s had a busy and productive camp, according to The Athletic’s Zak Keefer. "It’s probably not a stretch to say the third-year running back has caught more passes from [QB Philip] Rivers than anyone else,” Keefer wrote this week. Hines doesn’t have much rushing upside but could catch enough balls to be a nice PPR asset.
