2010 Fantasy Football: Preseason Fantasy Stock - Week 4
With preseason underway, there will be updates daily to this 2010 Fantasy Football Preseason Stock page. Games will be added as I watch them. Adjustments will be made on my 2010 Fantasy Football Rankings accordingly.
2010 Fantasy Football Preseason Stock - Week 4
Patriots at Giants
Ahmad Bradshaw, RB, Giants
Ahmad Bradshaw once again started the game and out-played Brandon Jacobs. Bradshaw totaled 26 yards on four carries to go along with a 17-yard reception. He's undervalued right now because many still believe that Jacobs is the starter.
Hakeem Nicks, WR, Giants
Hakeem Nicks saw five targets in the preseason finale, catching three balls for 33 yards. He also had a 15-yard end around. Nicks is due for a big year and makes for an excellent sixth-round pick as a WR3.
Montario Hardesty, RB, Browns
Montario Hardesty is a great late-round sleeper. No, wait. He was a great late-round sleeper. Hardesty looked great early on against the Bears, rushing for 25 yards and a touchdown on seven carries. Unfortunately, he suffered a left knee injury. After the game, he was on crutches. He'll have an MRI on the knee Friday. Hopefully he'll be OK, because as I wrote, he is/was a great late-round sleeper.
Jerome Harrison, RB, Browns
Montario Hardesty suffered a knee injury in the preseason finale. He'll have an MRI on Friday. If Hardesty has to miss a significant amount of time, Jerome Harrison, Peyton Hillis and maybe James Davis will share the carries. Stay tuned.
Brandon Lloyd, WR, Broncos
Brandon Lloyd saw way more targets from Kyle Orton (4) than any other receiver. Lloyd caught one pass for 16 yards, but he's well worth a late-round flier with Demaryius Thomas struggling with injuries.
David Buehler, K, Cowboys
The one thing of note for Dallas in the preseason finale was David Buehler's excellent kicking. Buehler went 4-of-4, nailing tries from 51, 45, 40 and 31. The latter was a clutch kick as time expired. If Buehler can demonstrate this type of accuracy in the regular season, he'll be a really good fantasy kicker, given Dallas' struggles in the red zone.
Kenny Britt, WR, Titans
Kenny Britt saw four targets against the Saints. That's the good news. The bad news is that he dropped a pair of passes and committed a false start penalty that got him yanked out of the game. Britt has major character and work ethic issues. Stay away from him in your fantasy drafts.
Leon Washington, RB, Seahawks
Julius Jones started the preseason finale for Seattle. He rushed for just 18 yards on six yards, and was predictably out-played by Justin Forsett (6 carries, 31 yards). The Seahawks running back who came out the winner? Leon Washington. Pete Carroll opted to sit Washington, which tells me that Carroll really values Washington and didn't want to risk injury to the former Jet. Washington is definitely the Seattle runner to own, especially considering how early Forsett is still going in most drafts.
