2023 Fantasy Football Preseason Stock – Week 1




Chiefs at Saints

Alvin Kamara, RB, Saints
Alvin Kamara looked like the pre-2022 Alvin Kamara in his preseason debut. Kamara was lacking explosion last year, but it returned in this game. He dashed for 14 yards on three carries and also caught two passes for 21 receiving yards. He has to serve a three-game suspension, but he’ll be a great producer upon his return.

Eagles at Ravens

Kenneth Gainwell, RB, Eagles
Kenneth Gainwell did not play in the preseason opener. Given that the Eagles sat all of their starters, this is extremely bullish for Gainwell, who has seen an increase in first-team reps recently.

Titans at Bears

Khalil Herbert, RB, Bears
Khalil Herbert, who scored on a 56-yard reception in the preseason opener, was the only running back used with the starters. This could eventually change later in the year, but Herbert is being undervalued at the moment.

Redskins at Browns

Jahan Dotson, WR, Redskins
Jahan Dotson looked like he had strong chemistry with Sam Howell in the preseason opener. Dotson caught two passes for 30 yards and a touchdown, making a great grab on the score. I’m high on Dotson this year, so I was glad to see this performance.

Brian Robinson, RB, Redskins
Brian Robinson appears to be the clear-cut No. 1 running back on the Redskins. Robinson handled all the first- and second-down work versus Cleveland, rumbling for 16 yards on three carries. Antonio Gibson served as the third-down back.

Steelers at Buccaneers

Najee Harris, RB, Steelers
Najee Harris started in the preseason opener and caught a pass right away. Jaylen Warren then entered the game. I thought Harris would be done, but he saw snaps after Warren received some touches. This is a very troubling development for all Harris fantasy owners because it appears as though the Steelers might utilize an even split between the two backs. In fact, Warren was even more impressive versus Tampa Bay. Warren rumbled for 13 yards on three carries, including one 9-yard burst where he resembled a tank.

Steelers Passing Offense
Kenny Pickett played in only one drive against the Buccaneers, but he put on a clinic. The second-year pro looked so much better than he did last season. He made several impressive passes, all of which were perfectly precise. He had just one incompletion, but that was thrown away because of pressure. Pickett went 6-of-7 for 70 yards and a touchdown, which was delivered on a strike to George Pickens on a slant.

Packers at Bengals

Jayden Reed, WR, Packers
Jayden Reed has seemingly already won the starting slot receiver job. He looked good in his preseason debut. He made a nice catch over a defender for a considerable gain. He also drew an interference flag at the goal line. He finished with two catches for 20 yards.

Vikings at Seahawks

Jordan Addison, WR, Vikings
Jordan Addison made two terrific catches in his preseason debut. The box score says otherwise – one catch, 22 yards – but an impressive sideline reception of his was nullified by official error. The Vikings could have challenged and easily won, but the coaching staff decided not to do so, likely because they wanted the game to end as quickly as possible. Addison shook it off and made a sliding 22-yard reception on an underthrown pass from Nick Mullens. Addison didn’t do anything after that, but he still looked great in this small sample size.

Texans at Patriots

Tank Dell, WR, Texans
Tank Dell had a great NFL preseason debut. He caught five passes for 65 yards and a touchdown. He showed some lightning-fast speed on a 24-yard reception in the second quarter. The score – a bobbled reception on a back-shoulder throw – came from Davis Mills, but Dell started and saw a target from C.J. Stroud. The Texans are desperate for someone to establish themselves as a No. 1 receiver, and Dell, who showed great chemistry with Stroud during the pre-draft process, could be that player.
