2009 Fantasy Football: Preseason Fantasy Stock




Missing Include



With preseason underway, there will be updates daily to this 2009 Fantasy Football Preseason Stock page.

Adjustments will be made on my 2009 Fantasy Football Rankings accordingly.

**** Unlike the Preseason Week 1-3 games, not every contest will feature fantasy stocks. Some teams didn't play any starters because this is the final week of the preseason. ****

2009 Fantasy Football Preseason Stock - Week 4



Cowboys at Vikings

Kevin Ogletree, WR, Cowboys
Kevin Ogletree started Friday night and was targeted twice on the opening drive by Jon Kitna. Ogletree pulled in both balls for 14 yards and a touchdown. No Cowboys receiver after Roy Williams has impressed the coaching staff this preseason, so if Ogletree gets a chance in the regular season, he could put up some solid numbers.

Eagles at Jets

Dustin Keller, TE, Jets
Of Mark Sanchez's five throws on Thursday night, three went to Dustin Keller. Keller caught all three balls for 44 yards. We haven't seen much of Sanchez yet, but it looks like Keller is his favorite target.

Mark Sanchez, QB, Jets
Mark Sanchez looked very sharp on his only drive Thursday night. Granted, it was against the Eagles' second-stringers, but all of his throws were sharp and accurate. Sanchez was 5-of-5 for 67 yards and a score. Sanchez can be a QB2, but he doesn't have much upside in a conservative offense with no true No. 1 receiver.

Lions at Bills

Calvin Johnson, WR, Lions
Calvin Johnson turned four of Matthew Stafford's targets into two receptions for 56 yards Thursday night. One of the incompletions was a 34-yard touchdown wiped out by a Daniel Loper holding penalty. Megatron played just two drives.

Matthew Stafford, QB, Lions
Matthew Stafford played against Buffalo's backups and went 5-of-9 for 81 yards Thursday night. Stafford had a touchdown wiped out by a penalty, but also had two turnovers (interception, fumble) on his first two drives. It's worth noting that the pick was not Stafford's fault; Keary Colbert slipped on his route (shocker).

Browns at Bears

James Davis, RB, Browns
James Davis tore it up for the Browns on Thursday night, compiling 37 yards on five carries. It's encouraging that Davis didn't receive much work; Eric Mangini clearly wanted to save him for the regular season. Expect Davis to be starting soon.

Brian Robiskie, WR, Browns
With Braylon Edwards out, Brian Robiskie started opposite of Mohamed Massaquoi on Thursday night. Brian Robiskie was targeted four times and was able to come away with three catches for 36 yards. Robiskie also scored a touchdown, but had it wiped away on a challenge because the officials said he didn't break the plane of the goal line. Robiskie has some upside as a late-round fantasy sleeper in deep leagues, but you can probably find someone better.

Chiefs at Rams

Larry Johnson, RB, Chiefs
Larry Johnson ran impressively against the Rams' starting defense Thursday night, though St. Louis has made every opposing running back look great this preseason. Johnson managed 58 yards on five carries, including a 41-yard gainer.

Dolphins at Saints

Davone Bess, WR, Dolphins
Chad Pennington predictably targeted Davone Bess more than any other receiver Thursday night. Bess turned his three Pennington targets into three receptions for 23 yards. Bess may just be a slot receiver, but he's a good backup to have in PPR leagues.

Ted Ginn Jr., WR, Dolphins
Another poor outing from Ted Ginn. Chad Pennington targeted Ginn only once Thursday night, which happened to be a 3-yard reception. Ginn later had a 23-yard catch from Chad Henne, but the fact remains that Ginn has done nothing the past three games with Pennington at the helm.

Brian Hartline, WR, Dolphins
Though the Miami Herald reported that Brian Hartline would start for the Dolphins, the rookie wideout came off the bench and dropped a pass Thursday night. Greg Camarillo started instead.

Steelers at Panthers

Steelers Defense
Two weeks ago, Stefan Logan wowed Steeler fans by averaging 12 yards per punt return and 39 yards per kickoff (four kickoff returns). On Thursday, Logan took a punt 80 yards to the house. With a dangerous return specialist, the Steelers defense should get a boost in your rankings, though someone will probably take them too early in your league.

Cardinals at Broncos

Kurt Warner, QB, Cardinals
I've been down on Kurt Warner all preseason, and Thursday's performance didn't do anything to change my mind. Warner, who played three series, was just 2-of-7 for 48 yards. One of his completions, a 36-yarder to Larry Fitzgerald, was a short pass that Fitzgerald was able to turn into a long gain. Warner's other completion was a screen pass thrown to Chris Wells that turned into a 12-yard reception. Making matters worse, Warner tossed a pick on his final attempt. As I've said all summer: Avoid the 38-year-old man coming off hip surgery.

Raiders at Seahawks

Edgerrin James, RB, Seahawks
The big news out of Seattle on Thursday is that Edgerrin James actually played. James kicked things off with gains of 4 and 7 yards on the ground against Oakland's starting defense. Unfortunately, that's all we saw out of the veteran running back. Still, this is an encouraging sign that James will take over for the pedestrian Julius Jones sooner rather than later.
