Stock Up/Stock Down Report (8-25 through 8-31)

By Jared Smola 9:09am EDT 9/1/18


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


Jordan Howard, RB, Bears

Howard saw encouraging usage this preseason, playing 72% of Chicago’s 1st-team snaps and splitting 3rd-down work with RB Tarik Cohen. By comparison, Howard posted 68.6% and 58.3% snap rates in his first 2 seasons. If the increased playing time continues into the regular season, he’ll carry a higher weekly floor than he has the past 2 years.

Sony Michel, RB, Patriots

Michel returned to practice this week, although he remains limited. The rookie won't be an early-season fantasy option but retains big upside. His ADP has fallen into the late 7th round.

Alfred Morris, RB, 49ers

Morris ripped off 84 yards on 17 carries in San Francisco’s 3rd preseason game. He still figures to be behind Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida on the depth chart. But he looks capable of making a fantasy impact this season if given an opportunity. Put him on your waiver-wire watch list.
