2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL UP./DOWN STOCK WATCH

Another edition of Fantasy Football Stock Watch as we take a look at those prime players whose have seen their values go north or south over the last few days.

TRENDING UP

Leonard Fournette:  Jacksonville Jaguars rookie power back Leonard Fournette is getting fully involved in practice for the team after coming back from soreness in his foot and he seems ready to go as a high-volume runner for Week 1.  Now it is concerning Fournette already is having foot problems since the same injury was a big problem during his LSU days but feel safe to put him in there as a firm Week 1 starter.  The only question now is what role if any Chris Ivory will play.

Kenny Britt:  Already a decent WR 3 in standard formats, the move to put Notre Dame rookie QB DeShon Kizer as the starter beginning in Week 1 is a boost for wideout Kenny Britt.  Britt has a nose for the end zone and the strong arm of Kizer should give him a chance to make more plays down the field.

Eric Ebron:  Finally Ebron has returned to practice from a stubborn hamstring injury and he should get enough reps to be fully involved for Week 1.  Ebron has tremendous natural athletic ability and receiving skills and you always get the feeling he is sitting on a big breakout.  In a passing offense like Detroit has, we would be buying in.

TRENDING DOWN

Sammy Watkins:  Not only does Watkins have a tough time staying healthy but he went from one bad QB situation in Buffalo to an even worse one in Los Angeles with the Rams.  Jared Goff has struggled mightily this preseason and he seems to enjoy looking short to rookie Cooper Kupp instead of deep to Watkins.  What a waste of talent.

Mark Ingram:  While he started the New Orleans Saints' third preseason game, it was a strict platoon with Adrian Peterson that is a big problem for Ingram's fantasy football value.  Count on Ingram being mostly a third down back and that will make him nothing but a RB 3 in all leagues this season.
