Paying Dividends: Week 8 Stock Report

Are you a buyer or a seller? @Tyler_Grez

Well, we’re officially at the halfway point and hopefully, your seasons have gone exactly as planned. I know mine haven’t. But, hey, I’m still here to guide you through the craziness that is dynasty football. So, let’s take a look at this week’s stock report.

Allen Robinson

16 targets. 16! Robinson is a lone ranger on that Bears offense right now and he’s still underperforming. That is not the fault of Robinson, however, he continues to fly under the radar as a very, very good dynasty buy-low. He is currently the WR15 on the year and has only 2 weeks thus far with less than 10 points. Robinson is proving to be rather matchup-proof and can be a steady player in your lineup for seasons to come. The 25-year-old continues to be under-valued and you’d be remiss to not take advantage.

Daesean Hamilton

Emmanuel Sanders is no longer in Denver. Courtland Sutton is the de facto number 1 guy now. Sutton should inherit some of Sanders’ vacated targets, but the biggest value beneficiary will actually be Daesean Hamilton. Sutton can’t absorb all the targets and while Sutton routinely begins to handle number 1 corners, Hamilton will get his opportunities. If he’s able to take advantage of those, then your buy-low opportunity will no longer exist.

Phillip Dorsett

I’m not sure of Dorsett’s long term value and I wouldn’t be willing to bank on it, personally. However, for the remainder of this season, Dorsett is a fine addition to any contending team’s bench. With the departure of Josh Gordon and uncertainty with other names on the roster, Dorsett slides as in the currently only viable and consistent outside threat on this Patriots team.

Michael Thomas

Michael Thomas remains one of my personal favorites to own in dynasty. The guy just puts up points every single week. He is by far the most consistent player that I own across all of my leagues. There’s not a lot of boom in his game, but there is something to be said about being able to depend on a guy to get you 15+ points every week. 

Darius Slayton

Slayton appears to be locked in as the team’s number 3 wide receiver. Sterling Shepard has struggled to stay healthy this year and Slayton has good long term value. He’s a guy I would be targeting for any of my rebuilding teams as an offseason of building rapport with Daniel Jones could do wonders for his production on the field in 2020 and beyond.

Emmanuel Sanders

Yes, Sanders’ move to the bay area is probably a boost to his on-field production. But, and this is a big but, I don’t think it’s that much more. It certainly will not be equivalent to what Sanders’ perceived value is right now. The 49ers have not had a true number 1 receiver all year long and I don’t see that changing too much. And let’s be honest, Sanders’ dynasty value is minimal. If some teams come calling because they like Sanders in San Francisco, I’m cashing in and wiping my hands clean. On the contrary, I’d be pursuing Deebo Samuel, who should be entering a good buy-low window.

Marvin Jones

Sell, sell, sell. Jones has put up more than 10 points only 5 times since the beginning of the 2018 season, last week included. I’m not interested in Jones long term so I’ll take pretty much whatever I can get for him at this point.

Melvin Gordon

Buy low. I’ve used that phrase multiple times today. Melvin Gordon struggled mightily last week against Tennessee. Gordon has struggled in all 3 games since his return. But, I’m not worried about Gordon’s long-term value. This is basically his preseason right now. It should have been expected for Gordon to get off to a slow start upon returning. It’s just natural. Gordon is still incredibly talented and whether he’s playing for the Chargers or another franchise in 2020, he’s a guy I want on my roster moving forward. His buying window has re-approached what it was during his 5-week holdout and I will be pestering the Gordon owner so I can take advantage.
