2015 Fantasy Football Offseason Stock Report (Down)




May 15, 2015

This is a list of the top 10 players whose fantasy stock has decreased because on what happened in free agency and the draft. This report will be reflected in the overall rankings, which will be updated soon. Here's a link to the Fantasy Football Stock Up page.

There will be many more 2015 Fantasy Football Rankings and features in the late spring and summer, including tons of 2015 Fantasy Football Mock Drafts, Player Rankings, Sleepers and Busts. I'll also have an extensive 2015 NFL Fantasy Football Preseason Stock Report.



2015 Fantasy Football Offseason Stock Report (Down)

10. Peyton Manning, QB, Broncos
Peyton Manning gets a slight bump down in the quarterback rankings because of what John Elway did to the offensive line this offseason. Manning's blocking looks terrible, so there's a greater chance he'll get hurt again. He's also 39 now, so it's bound to be over for him soon.

9. Drew Brees, QB, Saints
Drew Brees threw for 4,952 yards and 33 touchdowns in 2015. The problem was that he had so many dud performances throughout the year, as his team was incredibly inconsistent. Perhaps Brees will bounce back, but there are two things working against him: First, Jimmy Graham was shipped off. Second, Brees turned 36 this offseason, so he could continue to decline.





8. Torrey Smith, WR, 49ers
Torrey Smith should have done whatever it took to re-sign with the Ravens. That's because Marc Trestman is the new offensive coordinator. Smith could've have an incredible 2015 campaign if he returned to Baltimore. Instead, he'll rot away in San Francisco, playing for a team that is on a major decline.

7. Julius Thomas, TE, Jaguars
Julius Thomas took much more money to sign with a much less successful franchise. That's never a good omen. Thomas could produce in Greg Olson's offense, but it's more than likely that he'll disappoint because he's now fat and happy.

6. Rashad Jennings, RB, Giants
Rashad Jennings would be a solid RB2 if he could remain healthy, but that's hardly the case. Jennings is not a reliable running back, and he'll have to split time with Andre Williams and Shane Vereen. The addition of the latter to the roster really hurts Jennings' chances, as his receptions are bound to drop.



5. Brandon Marshall, WR, Jets
Brandon Marshall and Jay Cutler have separated for the second time in their careers, with Marshall now going to New York. No longer the player he once was, Marshall is going to have a tough time producing with the Jets, given the awful quarterback situation.

4. Jermey Maclin, WR, Chiefs
Jeremy Maclin caught 85 balls for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns last year, earning a big contract from the Chiefs. Unfortunately, Maclin sabotaged his career by leaving Philadelphia. There's a reason Alex Smith failed to throw a single touchdown pass to a receiver in 2014, and while that's unlikely to happen again, Maclin's numbers are set to severely decline.

3. Nick Foles, QB, Rams
Nick Foles' fantasy outlook is bleak, now that he's no longer in Chip Kelly's up-tempo offense. Foles may thrive with the Rams, but he probably won't be anywhere near QB1 territory because he won't throw nearly as much in St. Louis. The Rams just spent a first-round pick on a running back, after all.



2. Branden Oliver, RB, Chargers
Branden Oliver burst onto the scene following Ryan Mathews' injury with a pair of 100-yard games. He cooled off after that, though that was because his offensive line broke down. I liked Oliver's outlook before they drafted Melvin Gordon. Now, he's just waiver-wire fodder.

1. Tom Brady, QB, Patriots
Tom Brady has been suspended for four games because of Deflategate. Brady is still a QB1, but just barely; he'll turn 38 in August, which is bad news considering that Peyton Manning saw a dropoff at that age. Brady could have his suspension reduced, but how will he play now that he won't be able to deflate his footballs? (Just trolling, Pats fans.)
