Daily Fantasy Football Stock Report: 8/18/17 Kenny Golladay getting first team snaps with Lions

Unlike any other site, Roto Street Journal treats Fantasy Football like the stock market is. Just like on Wall Street, values are constantly in flux here on Roto Street, and true Fantasy Wolves never miss a single swing. Thus, we’re here to help you sift through the bombardment of news to figure out what truly matters, organizing it all into one convenient spot: The Daily Stock Report. To keep up with breaking fantasy football news, be sure to follow us on TwitterInstagram and Facebook.


Tier 1 – Genuinely Impactful Notes

These blurbs will undoubtedly cause moves and shakes on the ranks. This could range from significant injury, job promotions and demotions, unexpected volume or role changes, etc.

Lions WR Kenny Golladay is quickly rising up our ranks here with his stellar play so far in the preseason. The rookie out of Northern Illinois has worked his way into first team reps which is pretty big news for a pass heavy offense. Golladay had been in talks to be a serious red zone threat in Detroit, so his penny stock value right now might be seeing it’s last light. There’s a good chance Golladay starts rising into middle round territory.

When this comes across as the biggest news of the day, that’s how you know it was a slow one. John Brown of the Arizona Cardinals is someone that The Wolf sees some sneaky value in and as a top bench receiver option with high upside. If Brown can’t end up getting over this sickness and having a clean bill of health, his role on the team could be in jeopardy. We obviously wish him well and hope that he can recovery quickly and completely.

Tier 2 – Fodder to File

Interesting stories to file away, though they might not cause immediate waves on the rankings quite yet. This is the puff stories that we want to see some actual tape / action backing up, stories or injuries that need more concrete developments before we move people in the ranks, etc.

Paxton Lynch

“The latest unusual development: Paxton Lynch is getting considerably more first-team reps this week than he ever had through training camp and the offseason.

In the joint practice with the San Francisco 49ers here Wednesday on fields situated just outside Levi’s Stadium, there were five “team” periods of 11-on-11 football. Lynch got three, or 60 percent, of the periods with the first stringers. Trevor Siemian got the other two.”

Mike Klis (KUSA)

The Broncos QB competition that we didn’t actually think was going to happen appears to be heating up. The Broncos took Paxton Lynch with their first round pick last year and he definitely has more talent than Trevor Siemian. I don’t see Lynch supplanting the starting QB yet, but in the future event that he does it will only help the values to both Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

DeVante Parker

Parker was targeted four times in two drives with Jay Cutler as the QB. It might seem like a meaningless stat, but we have high hopes for Parker with Cutler under center. Cutler has the arm strength to stretch the field which plays right into Parker’s hands. Hopefully this trend can continue farther along.

Injury Report

  • RB Ty Montgomery (leg) is expected to miss the teams second preseason game
  • Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is hoping to return soon from his concussion
  • Jamison Crowder has returned in full to practice after a hamstring injury
  • Former Baylor Bears forward and current Cowboys tight end Rico Gathers has entered the league’s concussion protocol
  • Seahawks RB Thomas Rawls will miss the next preseason game with an ankle injury

Other News of the Day

Doug Martin looked VERY GOOD in last night’s preseason game. A big part of the team’s opening drive. Someone we’ve been very high on for a long time.

Blake Bortles still sucks

National Treasure Marshawn Lynch is the gift that just keeps on giving.
