Daily Fantasy Stock Report: Andrew Luck and others are looking to bounce-back in ’16

Every morning we compile the most important fantasy football links of the day for you to stay up-to-date and ahead of your fantasy opponents… This is your number one place for beat writer blabber, injury news, transaction tracking, and fantasy analysis from the experts who taught us a thing or two.

“[Andrew] Luck was playing brutal football even before injuries wiped out what remained of his season. Luck will learn from watching all those games from the sidelines and he knows he has to better protect his body. He is also entering what could be a historic contract year given the riches that possibly await. He is too good and too smart not to take his many mistakes from 2015 and transfer them into teachable moments. He’ll protect his body and protect the football and launch himself back into the conversation as one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL.”

Andrew Luck, Eddie Lacy, Jeremy Hill, Randall Cobb and Julius Thomas were named on Jason La Confora’s list of bounce-back guys for 2016, and he makes a pretty good case for each of them. Lacy’s body transformation, the loss of two key receivers in Cincinnati, the health of Jordy Nelson and the maturation of Blake Bortles were some of the main reasons for their bounce-back candidacy. Let’s hope these 2015 fantasy busts return to glory in 2016.

“With Elliott leading the backfield and Dez Bryant winning on the outside, Tony Romo is set up to direct what could be the league’s most well-balanced offense, capable of converting third down after third down to burn the clock, shorten games and keep a suspect Dallas defense off the field.”

With the Cowboys, Titans and Rams loading up on offensive linemen and running backs recently, those teams are returning to power football to counter against smaller subpackages. Bill Belichick has been known to be ahead of the curve, as he went shotgun and spread before the majority of the NFL. Ezekiel Elliott and Todd Gurley should have monster seasons behind their respective offensive lines and Derrick Henry should put up good touchdown numbers in 2016.

“I listened to Sam Bradford again. I just almost threw up,” [Michael] Bennett said. “I can’t believe Sam Bradford is complaining about making $40 million in the next two years, and because he actually has to compete for a position. This guy, this guy right here definitely sets a bad tone of what a player should be.”

-Michael Bennett, Seattle Seahawks

Michael Bennett, a player who typically says whats on his mind, had a bone to pick with Sam Bradford after Bradford asked for a trade out of Philadelphia. We mentioned yesterday that head coach Doug Pederson said that Bradford was the “No.1 guy” as of now, which should give the former No.1 selection some confidence heading into the pre-season. Bennett continued, saying that, “If I was his teammate … how can you play with a guy that doesn’t want to compete at a high level and feels like his position should be solidified without even putting up the stats or the wins to back that up?” Will Bradford still be starting for the Eagles when they play Seattle in week 11? That could be fun to watch.

Not strictly fantasy:

  • Gronk will do anything to get more chicks. He recently took some ballet lessons.
  • The Rams signed former Patriot Dominique Easley, who will be their fifth former first-rounder on their vaunted defensive line.
  • Wait, what? Bill Parcells almost cut Adam Vinatieri during his rookie season.
  • The Atlanta Braves fired their manager, Fredi Gonzalez, and he found out in an awkward/shitty way.
