Stock Rising on Giants Evan Engram, Dropping on Colts Eric Ebron

The Week 12 Fantasy Football Stock Report

Stock Up

Lamar Jackson certainly made a Fantasy impact filling in for an injured Joe Flacco in Week 11. The ultra-athletic Jackson carried the ball 24 times for 117 yards, adding 150 yards and a pick through the air. With a game plan clearly tailored to his strengths for one week, Jackson looked poised and dynamic. He’ll need to show NFL defenses that he can beat them with his arm in order to have a shot at sustained success. With the Raiders on tap in Week 12 and Flacco’s status up on the air, Jackson will be a Top 15 play and a popular streaming/DFS option if he gets the start. Even if Flacco returns in Week 12, there’s a great chance Jackson makes a few more starts this year.

With all the injuries to the Eagles backfield and the way he has flashed when given the opportunity, it’s amazing that Josh Adams hasn’t earned more than 10 touches in a game yet this year. While that has happened twice in the past three weeks, expect him to exceed that against the Giants in Week 12. Adams is a powerful between the tackles runner that showed inconsistent hands in college. Even if he only gets limited receiving opportunities, a bump to 12-15 carries along with goal line work makes him a solid RB2 for the stretch run. His upside is capped by the other RBs in the mix and a leaky defense that is forcing Wentz to air it out.

We already talked about Kenny Golladay a few weeks ago and he looks like a stud in the making, so let’s talk about another. Josh Reynolds is finally getting an opportunity and he’s making the most of it. He caught six balls for 80 yards and a score Monday, just missing a second TD in the first half. Unfortunately Cooper Kupp is out for the year, but Reynolds is showing that he can step in and be a playmaker for the Rams. He’s already flashed his prowess in the red zone, playing even larger than his 6’3” frame. The offense has so many weapons that there are going to be some weeks where he’s left out of the fun, but consider him a WR4 play moving forward.

Evan Engram, last year’s rookie stud TE, is having an uneven year with no more than 67 yards receiving in a game and just two scores. He missed time due to injury, but he’s now healthy and his upside makes him a TE1 at this point. The Giants offense is starting to pick up steam and Engram is the third or fourth passing game option for Eli Manning. The Eagles represent an excellent way for Engram to get back on track.

Stock Down

Kirk Cousins started off the season on fire, with two 400-yard passing games in the first month and a 10:2 TD to INT ratio. Unfortunately, he hasn’t had more than two scores in a game since Week Four and he’s coming off one of his worst showings of the year against the Bears. The weapons in Minnesota are too good for him not to put up above-average Fantasy stats, but he needs more productive showings to get back into the QB1 conversation. That is certainly possible with potential shootouts against the Packers and Patriots on the horizon.

Alex Collins is officially on notice. When Gus Edwards can jump in and blow him out of the water, you can’t feel that great about his Fantasy stock. Neither back is truly special in any way, but Edwards is a big body worth a free agent flier. He took advantage of pairing with Lamar Jackson in a heavy run game plan and chewed up the Bengals for 115 yards and a score. You still need to hold Collins until we see how things develop because he’s got RB2 upside as a volume back. The Ravens also curiously traded for Ty Montgomery mid-season, and he may still have a passing down role out of the backfield. Oh, and Kenneth Dixon was placed on IR with the designated to return tag, but it doesn’t sound likely at this point. This backfield could become an absolute mess, but it’s safe to drop Javorius Allen.

Demaryius Thomas received new life with a trade to the Texans, invigorating his dimming Fantasy stock. The opportunity thus far hasn’t quite been fruitful. Thomas didn’t record a catch on Sunday, while impressive rookie Keke Coutee snagged five for 77 yards. Thomas hadn’t been held catchless in a game since November of 2011 when Tim Tebow was under center. Everyone on the Texans offense is fighting for DeAndre Hopkins’ scraps and that includes Thomas. He’s still a big target for Watson, but not nearly the playmaker he was earlier in his career. Consider Thomas and Coutee in the WR3-4 range.

Despite Eric Ebron’s unbelievable start, there were some warning signs. While he had been consistently involved, his yardage totals have been modest but not studly. Outside of a ridiculous three-game stretch without Jack Doyle in Weeks Three through Five where he saw 36 targets, he’s seen seven or fewer in each game. The bottom line is his Fantasy value has been buoyed by a completely unsustainable nine TDs. Even with regression, however, he’s still in the TE1 mix because of the Colts’ high-powered offense.
