Paying Dividends: Week 4 Stock Report

@tyler_grez gives you the market calls to help you maximize those dynasty stocks.

It’s time for another weekly stock report. Who should you buy? Who should you sell? I lay it all out for you right here.

If you’re a contending team, Ingram should be one of your primary targets. Chances are that if you own Ingram then you are contending, however, the point remains. Ingram’s snap counts have increased each week thus far and he should be receiving nothing but positive game scripts for a while. He also has a very favorable road of matchups ahead of him. Ingram could be a league winner this year.

Alex Armah

Armah seems to have a firm handle on the backup duties in Carolina. He’s worth a stash as he appears to be McCaffery’s hand-cuff.

Taylor Gabriel

Sell, sell, sell. If someone is willing to buy Gabriel from you, take it. In 2017 and 2018 combined, Gabriel scored more than 10 .5 PPR points 4 times (16.4, 26.9, 14.4, 10.4). Gabriel averaged 5.79 .5 PPR points outside of those big performances. Gabriel has averaged 8.56 points during his tenure with Chicago with 3 games of 26.9, 14.4, and 29.9. You simply can’t rely on Gabriel. Sell at peak value if you can.

Auden Tate

Tate played 88% of the snaps and received 18.5% of the team’s targets in week 3. He hauled in 7 receptions for 94 yards. John Ross’ hot start has cooled off. AJ Green isn’t getting any younger so even if he does come back healthy, Tate has long term value. The 2018 7th round pick will look to continue his momentum against a pretty bad Steelers defense in a primetime matchup. If he does, he will be next week’s hottest waiver pickup.

Jakobi Meyers

It’s only been one week, but Meyers’ snap counts increased after the departure of Antonio Brown. The rookie appears to be the de-facto number 4 behind Dorsett, Edelman, and Gordon. With Edelman constantly dealing with injuries and the general unreliability of Gordon, there is a path to relevance for Meyers.

Darius Slayton

The passing game appears to be revamped. There is a wide-open position aside Sterling Shepard even the looming return of Golden Tate. Slayton has big-play ability which is something this team will need with Barkley going down and Engram likely being the focus of opposing defenses. Slayton is most definitely worthy of a stash and if he has another big week, he will be approaching “must-roster” status.

Jeremy Sprinkle

Vernon Davis isn’t getting any younger and Jordan Reed’s career appears to be in jeopardy. Sprinkle, a 2017 5th round pick, is 25 and entering his 3rd year. TEs are notorious for taking multiple seasons before breaking out; Sprinkle is right in that range. He has seen snap increases each of the past 2 weeks while Davis has seen a decrease. It might be a wildcard play at the moment, but Sprinkle is worth rostering in deeper leagues.

Ito Smith

Smith was a popular “buy” candidate for many dynasty owners this past offseason with the uncertainty of Freeman and the penchant to use 2 RBs in the Shanahan offensive system. It hasn’t been too fruitful for those who did buy. Smith is now dealing with a concussion and will have to fend off preseason UDFA darling Brian Hill and 5th round rookie Qadree Ollison for opportunities. Smith has only mustered up 9 points through the first 3 weeks. Atlanta could easily replace Smith’s production with either of Ollison or Hill and leave Smith by the way-side.

Kenny Golladay

Golladay is 26 years old and is not producing at his pre-season price tag. Golladay was being drafted as WR16 and is currently WR27 averaging 9.9 .5 PPR points per game. There is likely a contending team out there that is still willing to foot the bill to get a player like Golladay.

Stefon Diggs

Diggs’ 2019 season is not off to a good start. Only twice in 2018 did Digg’s target share percentage dip below 10%; it’s happened twice already this season. In 2018, Diggs’ snap count never dipped below 75% in any one game; it has dipped below 70 twice this year. Do with that information what you will, but it’s not looking too good for Diggs at this point.
