49ers Matt Breida’s Stock is Rising, Jets’ Robby Anderson is Falling

49ers Matt Breida’s Stock is Rising, Jets’ Robby Anderson is Falling premium

Week Two Stock Report: Players Rising and Falling

Kirk Cousins chose to sign with the Vikings this offseason in part because of the $84 million guaranteed. Another huge part was surely the talented offensive unit at his disposal. Cousins is off to a strong start, and he’s fresh off of an impressive tie against the Packers, where he threw for over 400 yards and four TDs. Sure, he was bailed out by a Clay Matthews penalty, but this is Fantasy, and all we care about are statistics. Expect Cousins to continue to roll with the likes of Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, Dalvin Cook and Kyle Rudolph all reaping the benefits. Regardless of what you think about his real-life value, Cousins is a QB1 for Fantasy purposes.

After a promising start to his career, Derek Carr took a major step back last season. Part of his 2017 struggles were blamed on a back injury and his receivers, especially Amari Cooper, didn’t help him out with numerous drops. That continued into Week One, where, after a solid first half, he threw three INTs against the Rams and couldn’t seem to consistently move the offense. That being said, he bounced back in Week Two against the Broncos, where he totaled 288 yards and a score, completing 90 percent of his passes. Still, it is difficult to trust Carr as anything more than a QB2 until he strings together a few more above-average performances.

After Jerick McKinnon tore his ACL, there was a sharp divide between people who thought Matt Breida or Alfred Morris would benefit the most. Morris has the familiarity and previous success with head coach Kyle Shanahan, but Breida represented upside after a strong showing as a rookie. Breida had a huge day on Sunday, turning 14 touches into 159 total yards and a TD. Morris has just two more touches through two games, and while the 29-year-old figures to stay involved, Breida has definite RB2 potential.

It’s only two weeks in, but owners are already asking questions about Alex Collins. With Kenneth Dixon out of the picture (again), Collins is only competing with Javorius Allen for touches, but that seems to be part of the problem. We know Allen is an asset in the passing game, but he’s also received 10 carries to Collins’ 16 through two games. Collins was drafted as a locked-in RB2, but he’ll need to hold off Allen to return that type of value. Consider him more of a FLEX play for the immediate future, with a workload heavily dependent on game script.

Josh Gordon being traded to the Patriots is mighty intriguing. The upside is drool-worthy, but the risk of heartbreak is also pretty high. Gordon hasn’t been great since 2013, when he was the most dominant receiver in the league. His uncertain and constantly-changing availability is without question a massive liability. However, the same can be said for the rest of the Patriots wide receiver depth chart. This is a dream scenario for Gordon owners, in that you can now trade him for top dollar. If you choose to keep him as a WR3, you might just get Top 10 upside. Or you might end up wondering what could have been, like every other person whose owned Gordon in Fantasy over the last five years and the Browns themselves.

While he caught a 41-yard TD in Week One, that was Robby Anderson’s only target. He saw an increase in Week Two to five targets, catching three for 27 yards. Right now, it appears that Quincy Enunwa is Sam Darnold’s number one target by a healthy amount. Terrelle Pryor is also in the mix and having a solid start to the season. We have seen the type of explosive performances that Anderson is capable of, but in standard leagues, he is nothing more than an inconsistent WR3 at best. If you play in half-point or PPR leagues, he’s merely a bench option until his target share increases.

David Njoku might stand to be the biggest beneficiary of the Gordon trade, even more so than Jarvis Landry and talented rookie Antonio Callaway. While he’s playing a majority of TE snaps and has received 14 targets through two games, Njoku has done little with those opportunities. Still only 22 years old and a freakish athlete, he figures to be an even larger factor in the passing game moving forward. The Browns should seek his assistance in the red zone, where his size and strength make him an ideal target. His upside is worth an immediate pick-up if available.

Austin Hooper looked good in Week Two with five receptions for 59 yards and a score. However, with so many other talented mouths to feed in Atlanta, it is hard to bank on consistency with Hooper. The talent is there for him to be a Top 10 TE option, but the usage and opportunity needs to be there. His athleticism is not utilized enough in the red zone, although neither is Julio Jones, so there’s not much hope for that improving. Hooper is still a TE2 option, but one that you should be monitoring closely as Bye Weeks approach and TE injuries mount.
