Dynasty

Stock Up/Stock Down Report (8-4 through 8-10)

By Jared Smola 12:08am EDT 8/11/18


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


Andrew Luck, QB, Colts

Luck’s encouraging August continued in Thursday night’s preseason opener. In his first action in over 19 months, he completed 6 of 9 passes for 64 yards. Luck even took a couple of hits and was no worse for the wear. He’s looking less and less risky by the day and still carries top-5 upside.

Leonard Fournette, RB, Jaguars

He’s down about 15 pounds and has enjoyed a healthy offseason. Fournette looked good in Thursday night’s preseason game, carrying 5 times for 24 yards. Remember that he was sitting 3rd among RBs in PPR points and 2nd in non-PPR before injuries got in the way last year.

Rex Burkhead, RB, Patriots

We’ll see exactly how much time RB Sony Michel misses after having fluid drained from his knee. But Burkhead looks like a good bet to open the season as New England’s lead back regardless.

Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine, RB, Redskins

Derrius Guice's season-ending torn ACL again leaves these guys as Washington's top early-down backs. Kelley ran ahead of Perine in the preseason opener, making him the early favorite to lead the team in carries this year. But we'll continue to monitor the situation over the next few weeks. With RB Chris Thompson controlling passing-down work, neither Kelley or Perine will be more than a RB.

Chris Carson, RB, Seahawks

The buzz on Carson hasn’t slowed, and he continues to run ahead of rookie Rashaad Penny. In Thursday night’s preseason opener, Carson out-snapped Penny 7 to 5 and out-carried him 3 to 2 with the 1st-team offense.

Jordan Wilkins, RB, Colts

Marlon Mack's hamstring injury opens the door for Wilkins to carve out an early-season role. The rookie carried 6 times for 21 yards in his preseason debut on Thursday night.

Chris Hogan, WR, Patriots

Hogan continues to climb the rankings as New England’s WR corps crumbles around him. Don’t forget that Hogan ranked 10th in PPR points and 8th in non-PPR last year before a Week 8 shoulder injury last season.

Chris Godwin, WR, Bucs

The Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud reported this week that Godwin is in line to start out wide alongside Mike Evans. That’d push DeSean Jackson into the slot. If that holds, Godwin will out-snap Jackson this season and be the better fantasy bet. The 2nd-year WR is an excellent target at his 15th-round ADP.

Ryan Grant, WR, Colts

HC Frank Reich said last weekend that Grant has "separated" from the pack in the competition for the team's #2 WR job. We’re not counting out Chester Rogers yet, but Grant is the guy to target for now if you’re looking for a late-round Colts WR.

Corey Coleman, WR, Bills

Coleman got a downgrade in QB play with his move from Cleveland to Buffalo. But he has a much better chance to earn targets, with WR Kelvin Benjamin as his only established competition.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR, Packers

Valdes-Scantling was the best of Green Bay’s 3 rookie WRs in the preseason opener, racking up 101 yards and a score on 5 grabs. Veteran Geronimo Allison remains the favorite to open the season as the #3 WR, but Valdes-Scantling is officially on our watch list.

Dallas Goedert, TE, Eagles

Goedert has reportedly been a big part of Philly’s red-zone offense in camp. Then he went out and posted a 4-66-1 line in his preseason debut. Goedert will probably need Zach Ertz to miss time to be a reliable fantasy play, but he’s at least worth a look late in FFPC best-ball drafts.

Jordan Akins, TE, Texans

The rookie hauled in a pair of scores in Thursday night’s exhibition. Both came from backup QB Brandon Weeden after QB Deshaun Watson played just 1 series. We’ll see if Akins’ performance earns him some run with the 1st-team in next week’s preseason game. Houston’s TE situation remains wide open.



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


Rashaad Penny, RB, Seahawks

Penny still sits behind Chris Carson on the depth chart. On the plus side, he got on the field with QB Russell Wilson and the starting offense in Thursday’s preseason opener, playing 5 snaps to Carson’s 7. We’re still projecting Penny to easily lead Seattle’s backfield in touches this year, but we’ll continue to keep a close eye on the situation.

Sony Michel, RB, Patriots

Michel had fluid drained from his knee this week. ESPN’s Mike Reiss reported that he’ll miss at least 10 days, but the procedure isn’t expected to impact his “availability for a significant portion, if any, of the regular season.” We’ll see exactly how long the rookie is sidelined, but any missed time hurts his chances of making an early-season impact.

Derrius Guice, RB, Redskins

He'll miss his entire 2018 rookie campaign after tearing his left ACL in Thursday night's preseason opener.

Marlon Mack, RB, Colts

Mack is "week to week" with a hamstring injury suffered in Thursday's preseason game. The 2nd-year back couldn't afford another injury after missing all of spring workouts recovering from shoulder surgery. We'll see when Mack is able to get back onto the field, but he's no lock to open the season as Indy's starter.

Aaron Jones, RB, Packers

Jones has missed over a week of training camp — and the 1st preseason game — with a hamstring injury. Throw in his 2-game suspension, and it's tough to see him being a reliable fantasy play until at least October.

Doug Baldwin, WR, Seahawks

Baldwin remains sidelined with his knee injury and has no timetable for return. He's an avoid at his 3rd-round ADP until we get more clarity.

DeSean Jackson, WR, Bucs

If Chris Godwin takes Jackson’s place in 2-WR sets, D-Jax’s snaps and targets figure to take a hit. He looks best as a WR4 or 5 in best-ball leagues.

Martavis Bryant, WR, Raiders

Bryant was called out by HC Jon Gruden this week and has reportedly been working mostly with the 2nd-team offense in training camp. He’s just a late-round flier at this point.

Chester Rogers, WR, Colts

He’s fallen behind Ryan Grant in the race for Indy’s #2 WR job. The battle isn’t decided yet, but Rogers isn’t worth drafting as of now.

Zay Jones, WR, Bills

The best thing Jones had working for him in 2018 was a clear path to #2 WR duties. That’s now gone with the arrival of WR Corey Coleman.

Kenny Britt, WR, Patriots

Britt has yet to practice in training camp due to a hamstring injury The Boston Globe’s Ben Volin left him off his 53-man roster projection this week.

Malcolm Mitchell, WR, free agent

The 2016 4th-rounder was dumped by the Patriots this week as he continues to struggle with knee trouble. Mitchell is obviously off the redraft radar and has minimal dynasty value remaining.

Deon Cain, WR, Colts

The rookie tore his ACL in Thursday night's preseason opener and will miss the entire 2018 season.
