Stock Up/Stock Down Report (8-24 through 8-30)

By Jared Smola 7:08am EDT 8/31/19


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

Duke Johnson, RB, Texans

Lamar Miller’s season-ending knee injury leaves Johnson atop the depth chart. We’ll see what Houston adds to the backfield over the next few days — but we believe Johnson is capable of handling a feature role. He’s 210 pounds and averaged 6.8 yards per carry on 242 attempts in his final college season at Miami.

Tevin Coleman, RB, 49ers

With Jerick McKinnon on IR, this is now a 2-man backfield in San Francisco. We’ve been bumping Matt Breida up the RB rankings all August, but it was time to give Coleman a boost. Consider him a low-end RB2.

Tony Pollard, RB, Cowboys

Pollard looks set to operate as Dallas’ feature back for however long Ezekiel Elliott’s holdout lasts. The rookie was on the field for all 22 of QB Dak Prescott’s snaps this preseason.

Damion Willis, WR, Bengals

This guy will open the season in Cincinnati’s starting lineup in place of A.J. Green. Willis is a 6'3, 204-pound undrafted rookie from Troy who clocked a 4.48-second 40 time at his Pro Day. He’s unlikely to become a real fantasy factor but is at least worth monitoring in Week 1.

George Kittle, TE, 49ers

The 49ers’ questions at WR have us boosting Kittle’s target projection. He’s now the TE2 — ahead of Zach Ertz — across scoring systems.

Kyle Rudolph, TE, Vikings

We talked about Rudolph’s encouraging usage this preseason and strong fit in Minnesota’s new offense in Tuesday’s podcast. He’s a strong value at his 14th-round ADP.


Stock Down: These players have moved down the Draft Sharks rankings over the past week.

Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Cowboys

His holdout continues. And owner Jerry Jones said Thursday that he’s expecting Elliott to miss multiple regular-season games. Zeke could still sign tomorrow and play Week 1. But for now, we’ve knocked 2 games off his projections.

Melvin Gordon, RB, Chargers

Gordon’s holdout also continues. ESPN’s Eric Williams wrote this week that he expects Gordon to report before Week 1, but that read more like an opinion than a report. Fantasy owners should be drafting as if he’ll miss multiple games, and as much as half the season.

David Johnson, RB, Cardinals

We don’t like what we’ve seen from Arizona’s offense this preseason, especially on the offensive line. That has Johnson down to 6th in the PPR RB rankings and 7th in non-PPR.

Lamar Miller, RB, Texans

He tore his ACL in last Saturday night’s preseason game and will miss the entire 2019 season. Miller is set to hit free agency in March and turns 29 in April.

Jerick McKinnon, RB, 49ers

He was placed on IR after experiencing another setback with his surgically repaired knee this week. It’s unclear if McKinnon has a shot to return for the 2nd half of the season, but he’s not worth stashing in fantasy leagues that don’t have an IR spot.

Doug Martin, RB, free agent

The 30-year-old was dumped by the Raiders last Sunday. We’ll see if Martin lands elsewhere (Houston? Tampa?), but he’s off the fantasy radar for now.

Elijah McGuire, RB, free agent

He was cut by the Jets on Friday. Ty Montgomery and Bilal Powell are 2nd and 3rd on the team’s depth chart behind Le’Veon Bell.

Hakeem Butler, WR, Cardinals

The rookie was placed on IR with his hand injury and will miss the season.

Maurice Harris, WR, free agent

Remember when Harris was buzzing early in Patriots camp? He was released on Sunday.

Graham Gano, K, Panthers

He was placed on IR with a knee injury and will miss the entire season. K Joey Slye is now atop Carolina’s depth chart..

Giorgio Tavecchio, K, Falcons

He missed 5 of his 9 FG attempts this preseason. Atlanta signed K Blair Walsh last weekend and worked out K Matt Bryant. Avoid this situation in fantasy drafts.
