NFL Stock Watch Coming Monday

Rather than post random thoughts today, I’m working on a comprehensive NFL Stock Watch report that will cover every single player I feel has seen his stock rise or fall based on the events of this weekend. I’ll complete and post that tomorrow.

NFL Draft Loose Clippings – Day Two

* The NFL Network and ESPN are reporting the New England Patriots have acquired WR Randy Moss from the Raiders for a 4th rounder. Wow! And you can bet your sweet bippy the Pats will protect themselves with multiple “outs” in the restructuring of Moss’ contract.

OK, here are my knee jerk FF reactions to the fallout from this news:

QB Tom Brady – Small spike. How can he significantly improve on his numbers with their defense?

RB Laurence Maroney – Substantial spike. Larry could positively run wild with Moss clearing out all of the underneath coverage trash over the middle. His long-term value is enormous right now.

TE Ben Watson & WR Wes Welker – Could also benefit for the same reasons as Maroney.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year. First of all, he’s madly productive as is: he hauled in 85/1314/8 last year and averaged 16.5 FPG in a PPR league. That was good enough to rank h […]
