2017 Fantasy Football Stock Report - Week of July 10
Carlos Hyde, RB, 49ers
Carlos Hyde will have to compete for a starting job, according to Matt Maiocco, CSN Bay Area. It's not surprising that Hyde isn't guaranteed the gig, as Tony Pauline reported back in the spring that the 49ers don't view him as a good fit for their offense. They also like fourth-round rookie Joe Williams, who will probably be the starter by the end of the season.
Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Cowboys
Adam Schefter said that he would be hesitant to draft Ezekiel Elliott this summer. Schefter is an avid fantasy player, and he notes that there's a chance Elliott is suspended for domestic violence. Of course, this could all be a ruse so that Schefter can land Elliott late in the first round of his fantasy leagues.
Cam Newton, QB, Panthers
Ron Rivera told the media that Cam Newton will run less this season. This was the plan, as the Panthers added some offensive weapons around Newton this offseason. Newton will still pick up plenty of rushing yardage, but his totals in that regard should be a bit down this year.
Emmanuel Sanders, WR, Broncos
Emmanuel Sanders has eliminated fast food from his diet, according to Mike Klis, 9 News Denver. Sanders admitted to constantly going to McDonald's and Burger King, but he has taken new measures after a disappointing 2016 campaign. Though quarterback continues to be a big problem, Sanders should be better in 2017 than he was last year.
