Stock Up: WR Davante Adams, Las Vegas Raiders
Adams had a long overdue big game on Sunday against the Dolphins, catching seven passes for 82 yards and a touchdown. He also led the Raiders in targets, catches, and receiving yards in the game. Adams has been more involved since the head coach and quarterback changes took place in Las Vegas. He will look to continue his strong play this week against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Stock Up: RB Saquon Barkley, New York Giants
Barkley had a monster game on Sunday against the Commanders, carrying the ball 14 times for 83 yards while also catching four passes for 57 yards and two touchdowns. This game reminded us just how versatile Barkley can be. He will continue to be the focal point of the Giants’ offense this week against the Patriots.
Stock Up: WR Tank Dell, Houston Texans
Dell produced his third strong game in a row on Sunday against the Cardinals, catching eight of his 10 targets for 149 yards and a touchdown. He now has four touchdowns in his last three games and clearly has a strong connection with his rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud. He should be in line for another strong performance this week against the Jaguars,
Stock Up: WR Calvin Ridley, Jacksonville Jaguars
After weeks of disappointing fantasy managers, those who stuck with Ridley were rewarded last week as he caught seven of his nine targets for 103 yards and two touchdowns against the Titans. He also had one rush for 18 yards. Ridley has been boom or bust this season, and he will look to continue his strong play this week against the division-rival Texans.
Stock Up: QB Brock Purdy, San Fransisco 49ers
After a few underwhelming performances, Purdy has played two strong games in a row following the 49ers’ bye week. On Sunday against the Buccaneers, Purdy completed 21 of his 25 pass attempts for 333 yards and three touchdowns with zero turnovers and a perfect passer rating. Purdy and the 49ers will look to carry their momentum into their matchup with the Seahawks this week.
Stock Down: RB Austin Ekeler, Los Angeles Chargers
Ekeler had a surprisingly quiet game on Sunday against the Packers. He carried the ball 10 times for 64 yards and caught only two passes for six yards. He failed to score a touchdown and lost a fumble in the game as well. His 10 carries was his lowest total of the season to this point, and he has a tough matchup against a strong Ravens defense this week.
Stock Down: WR Deebo Samuel, San Fransisco 49ers
Samuel was efficient on Sunday against the Buccaneers, catching three of his four targets for 63 yards. However, his lack of volume is becoming an issue for fantasy purposes. Samuel has the potential to have a big game any given week, but he has been extremely unpredictable this season and may be better off on the bench if you have more reliable options available.
Stock Down: RB Derrick Henry, Tennessee Titans
Henry had a quiet day on Sunday against the Jaguars, carrying the ball only 10 times for 38 yards and catching only one pass for six yards. Part of the low workload was due to the Titans playing from behind for most of the game, but this is Henry’s second poor performance in a row. He still led the team in carries and yards and will look to have a bounce-back performance this week against a Panthers defense that has struggled in recent weeks.
Stock Down: RB Josh Jacobs, Las Vegas Raiders
Jacobs struggled to get anything going on the ground last week against the Dolphins as he carried the ball 14 times for just 39 yards while adding one catch for 12 yards. While he was the only running back to carry the ball on Sunday, his volume took a hit as the Raiders opted to focus more on the passing game against the Dolphins. He has a better matchup this week against the Cheifs, who have struggled against the run at times this season. Jacobs should remain an RB1 this week.
Stock Down: WR Zay Flowers, Baltimore Ravens
Flowers caught three of his four targets for 43 yards on Thursday against the Bengals. He has caught three or more passes in every game this season but has scored just one touchdown, and that was in Week 1. He has also scored more than ten PPR points just once in his last four games. He will look to turn it around this week against the Chargers, but he should be seen as nothing more than a flex option at the moment.
