Stocks Up and Stocks Down After Week 4



Buys:

Aaron Jones


Jones was on a snap count against the Lions last week, but that’s not all that brings value to his price. This backfield was expected to be a bit of a timeshare as it was last year, but AJ Dillon struggled mightily while Aaron Jones was out. After seeing his performances, I can’t picture LaFleur splitting time evenly between these guys. I think Jones earns about 75% of Green Bay’s RB snaps from here on out.



Saquon Barkley


Barkley owners probably lost the last two weeks. With 2-2 records at best and fears about the Giants’ offense running through their heads, these fantasy owners will be scrambling for solutions. You may be able to take advantage and snag Saquon at what will likely be his lowest value of the season.



Christian Watson


Similar to his teammate Aaron Jones, Watson appeared to be limited in his role on Thursday. Romeo Doubs has consistently been Jordan Love’s favorite target, and Watson owners may be afraid. I think the talent will ultimately win out, and Christian Watson will return to form as the big play threat we saw last year.



Breece Hall


Robert Saleh said that Breece will no longer be on a snap count starting this week. We all know how explosive he can be, and Dalvin Cook looks pretty washed up. This is your last chance to buy him before he explodes.



Tank Dell


Nico Collins took over this week against Pittsburgh, but Dell had been on the uptick each week. This offense has the volume to sustain both Collins and Dell, and now is the time to capitalize and pick up Dell at a low price coming off of a 3 target week.




Sells:

Justin Fields


The Bears offense turned it on against Denver, and still managed to lose that game. They won’t do this every week, and I think the losses, coaching issues, and culture problems surrounding Chase Claypool & play calling will all bury this team. I don’t trust the offense, and I certainly don’t trust Fields. Sell him off of a good week.



Khalil Herbert


Pretty much copy and paste everything I said about Fields here. On top of all of that, the run blocking is also terrible in Chicago, and Roschon Johnson is always in that background waiting to get more involved.



Alexander Mattison


Mattison makes his second straight appearance under the sells on this list. He had a semi-decent week 4, which may even boost his value for you a bit. He still has four fumbles in four games, and Cam Akers coming up behind him. No reason to continue to start Mattison.



George Pickens


I’ll maintain that this is a Sell Matt Canada message rather than any indictment on Pickens’ talent. His skillset just doesn’t mesh with what Canada has him doing. Until Matt Canada is gone, George Pickens will continue to run slants or go’s on almost every single route, and will need to rely on breaking off long RAC TDs to stay valuable.



Alvin Kamara


Another player to make his second straight appearance on the sell list, Alvin Kamara just didn’t look the part last week. 33 yards on 13 receptions was historically bad YPC production, and Carr won’t be playing tough defenses with a bad shoulder every week. Olave will be more involved than he was against Tampa. If you are in PPR, Kamara had a viable fantasy performance, and you can use his 14 targets and 13 receptions to try and grab good value in return.




Holds:

Isiah Pacheco


Pacheco is taking over the Chiefs’ backfield – playing 60% of the snaps last week – and he’s just a ball of energy on the field. He runs hard every play, and he’s rewarded on occasion with big gains. As it stands, Pacheco is best served being a RB2 option for your team.



Amari Cooper


When Deshaun Watson comes back, Cooper should be back to his 10 target per game self, especially with Nick Chubb out for the year. It will come down to execution: can Watson get right?



Calvin Ridley


Welp, you likely drafted this guy to be your WR1 or WR2, and that is just not panning out. You can’t sell him now – you’d get nothing – but I’m not sure I have full 100% confidence in Doug Pederson and the offense to figure things out like they were last year. The lack of execution is alarming.



Puka Nacua


Puka has looked incredible through 4 games. Cooper Kupp’s return will certainly muddy things, but we’ve seen 2 WRs be able to flourish here at the same time before (Kupp/Beckham, Kupp/Woods, Nacua/Atwell.) The intrigue is enough to dissuade me from selling, but we’ll have to see what his new role will be before I’m buying again.



Darren Waller


Similar situation to Ridley. You just can’t sell him this low, and just have to hope things get better. The Giants were able to do it last year with no blocking and no receivers, so maybe they’ll figure some stuff out and turn the offense around with no blocking again, but make Waller a focal point.
