Fantasy Football Stock Report: Wide Receivers

Who is on the rise and who might be tumbling down fantasy draft boards with the Regular Season approaching? Welcome to the Fantasy Stock Report. Over the next few days, we’ll be looking at the players making moves in Fantasy Football.

In today’s Stock Report, we’ll dive into several Wide Receivers you should be paying attention to as you prep for your draft or make moves in your lineups for Week 1.

Jahan Dotson – Stock Up

Dotson showed plenty of explosiveness in 2022 as Terry McLaurin’s running mate in Washinton, but he’s on my radar as a true breakout player this season, especially with 2nd-year QB Sam Howell looking good in Camp/Preseason. McLaurin’s turf toe injury could also pave the way to more looks for Dotson. Look for the 2nd-year receiver to deliver regular FLEX production levels with the occasional pop in this offense.

Marquise Brown – Stock Down

If Kyler Murray plays for any portion of this season, Brown’s stock should rise. For now, AZ’s Week 1 starting QB is yet to be decided, with Rookie passer Clayton Tune surprisingly pushing incumbent QB2 Colt McCoy for the job much further into Preseason action than expected. For now, this offense looks to be one of the worst in the league. I’m steering clear of every part of it.

George Pickens – Stock Up

Seemingly every Steelers offensive player’s stock is soaring after a dynamic Preseason that saw the starting offense deliver 5 TDs on 5 drives and move the ball both efficiently and explosively in all 3 contests. Pickens and QB Kenny Pickett have impeccable chemistry down the sideline, where Pickens has an almost unnatural ability to create separation with the ball in the air and catch anything coming his way. He’ll be one of Pickett’s top Red Zone weapons as well. He has WR1 upside and is probably already a low-end WR2.

Chris Godwin – Stock Down

The Buccaneers named Baker Mayfield their starting QB for 2023. That’s actually good news for Mike Evans, who remains the team’s best downfield threat for a QB who’s best trait is his deep ball touch and accuracy. Where Baker struggles is within the timing of the offense on underneath routes and YAC concepts. That’s Godwin’s ballgame, and I don’t see this offense lighting up the scoreboard very often as it is. Fade Godwin in your drafts.

Chris Olave – Stock Up

This Saints offense is flying under the radar despite QB Derek Carr on the scene, replacing Andy Dalton as the team’s starting passer. After Preseason Week 2, concerns that the offense can’t be explosive should dissapate tremendously. Carr and Olave have looked incredible throughout camp, and Carr has proven he can operate a high-level NFL passing offense with the right weapons around him. Olave is a gamewrecker at WR as a complete player who can beat you with speed or route-running ability anywhere on the field. Olave is great value at the back end of the 2nd round or early 3rd.
