Stock Up/Stock Down Report (8-27 through 9-2)

By Jared Smola 10:09am EDT 9/3/16


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

Dak Prescott, QB, Cowboys

Prescott was nothing short of brilliant this preseason, completing 78% of his passes, averaging 9.1 yards per attempt and chucking 5 TDs with 0 INTs. His task will be tougher when the real games start, but he’ll be playing behind an elite offensive line with a talented RB, #1 WR and TE. Prescott’s rushing ability gives him added upside. He could quickly emerge as a spot-start option.

Arian Foster, RB, Dolphins

Foster got the preseason finale off. Jay Ajayi didn’t. That might be telling as far as which guy will enter Week 1 as the lead back (Foster). We’re still expecting a committee attack, though, and Miami doesn’t look like a fruitful fantasy backfield.

Will Fuller, WR, Texans

This rookie looks ready to make an instant impact. He’s hauled in 7 balls for 140 yards and 2 TDs over the last 2 preseason games. Fuller has locked up a Week 1 starting job and is a nice pick anywhere in the double-digit rounds — especially in best-ball leagues.


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

Jamaal Charles, RB, Chiefs

ESPN’s Adam Teicher has single-handedly sunk Charles in our rankings. He reported on Wednesday that Charles is “behind schedule” in his rehab and suggested Thursday that he’s not a lock to play in the opener. One of the most reliable reporters in the industry, Teicher’s words need to be taken seriously. We’re not drafting Charles inside the first 2 rounds.

Dez Bryant, WR, Cowboys

As good as Dak Prescott has looked this preseason, he still projects as a downgrade from Tony Romo — at least early on this year. Dallas also figures to go even more run-heavy under Prescott.

Ladarius Green, TE, Steelers

Green was placed on reserve/PUP this week, knocking him out for at least the first 6 weeks. His availability beyond that remains in question. Green is only worth drafting in leagues with an IR spot.
