Each week I will highlight players and teams who have seen their value rise or fall during the previous week. I will also try to highlight players that have favorable schedules coming up that could give them a boost in value. Remember that you always want to sell high and buy low!
2. Eddie Lacy
-Andre Ellington: more explosive than Mendenhall (only 3.2 YPC). Better in the passing game (for PPR leagues).
-Torrey Smith: has at least 85 yards in each game. Only has one touchdown, but that won’t last for long. Almost double digit targets every week.
-Garrett Graham: takes over for the injured Owen Daniels. In limited playing time, already has 3 touchdowns, and four games with at least 3 catches. Gets a lot of looks in the red zone. Should see an increase in targets as starting tight end.
2. Lamar Miller
-LeSean McCoy: With Foles at QB, the Eagles won’t attempt zone-read offense. After Foles replaced Vick last week, McCoy ran 10 times for 6 yards. However, it’s hard to put McCoy on here, because no one is going to sit him (more of a weekly/eliminator piece of advice).
-Tavon Austin and Jared Cook: nightmare schedule coming up. Increased targets for Austin Pettis and Lance Kendricks have come at the expense of these two. Plus, it’s a lousy offense to begin with and they don’t play the Jaguars every week.
