FANTASY FOOTBALL STOCK UP/STOCK DOWN

                                                          

STOCK UP

Steven Jackson:  Jackson is inching back toward the field slowly from his hamstring injury but he has now graduated to agility drills which is a nice sign.  Jackson knows he needs to get back into action as soon as possible with rookie Devonta Freeman lighting things up in the preseason debut for the Atlanta Falcons.  Now well past his prime at a very old 31, Jackson is trying to salvage one more RB 2 season in standard formats.  Even if Freeman eventually gets the majority of snaps, Jackson should continue to handle the goal-line work.

Brandon Bostick:  The Green Bay Packer Tight End Derby continues on as the team looks to replace Jermichael Finley on the field and in the passing offense.  Bostick apparently is doing enough to impress the coaching staff enough to warrant him moving to the top of the depth chart ahead of Richard Rogers and Andrew Quarless.  Having a nice combination of size and speed (not to mention possibly having a starting spot in one of the more potent passing attack's in the game), Bostick is a name of interest in the last few rounds of your draft.

Kelvin Benjamin:  Benjamin is already opening eyes after catching a touchdown in his preseason debut but things are getting even more giddy in Carolina after ESPN's David Newton reported on Tuesday that he has been the "star of Panthers camp."  There is possibly some significant value in all formats here despite Benjamin being raw due to the fact the Panthers are in major need of receiving help.  Move him up your board.

STOCK DOWN

Nick Foles:  We are getting a bit more concerned about Nick Foles by the day as reports continue to come out of Philly that he is struggling in practice.  This on the heels of Foles having an awful preseason debut when he threw two interceptions.  There is now a firm book out there on Foles that defensive coordinators have been studying all offseason and the loss of DeSean Jackson no doubt hurts.  Still the system is immense and ultimately we still like Foles as a solid QB 1.
