Stock Up

Trevor Lawrence, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars

The current success of Trevor Lawrence has to be a welcome sight for Jacksonville Jaguars fans. The Jaguar fans have to be relieved that Urban Meyer is no longer leading the team and destroying the future of Lawrence and the entire franchise. Instead, we are now witnessing what Lawrence is capable of, and it's hard not to be thrilled.

Lawrence has produced three QB1 finishes in the last four weeks, and his fantasy stock continues to rise, including being the top overall QB in Week 14. He continues to impress, and the sky is the limit.

Jerick McKinnon, RB, Kansas City Chiefs

The latest buzz in the Kansas City Chiefs backfield has been about Isiah Pachecho, but the real focus should be on Jerick McKinnon. McKinnon was excellent in the Chiefs' victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday. McKinnon caught seven passes for 112 yards and two touchdowns to help the Chiefs survive.

McKinnon has established himself as the RB to roster in the Chiefs backfield. His involvement in the passing game has increased significantly since their Week 8 Bye Week. If he is somehow available in your league, grab him immediately.

Mike Williams, WR, Los Angeles Chargers

it is fantastic to see Mike Williams back on the field catching passes from Justin Herbert. Williams has been out of the lineup for four weeks and only saw a few snaps in another contest. However, we witnessed what a healthy Mike Williams can do on Sunday Night against the Miami Dolphins when Williams caught all of his six targets for 116 yards and a touchdown.

Williams has an enticing upcoming schedule starting with a tasty matchup against the Tennessee Titans this week. The former Clemson Tiger will be a key to many fantasy championships this year.

Chigoziem Okonkwo, TE, Tennessee Titans

With fantasy managers always scrambling for options at tight end, one has emerged in Tennessee, and it's not Austin Hooper. A tight end whose name is hard to pronounce in Chigoziem Okonkwo, but he is a tight end with upside that has proven to be quite a fantasy asset.

Okonkwo still shares snaps with Hooper, but he continues to capitalize on his looks with 13 receptions across his last three games. The Titans' offense looks for options outside Derrick Henry, and the former Maryland tight end continues to rise up the tight end rankings.

Stock Down

Derek Carr, QB, Las Vegas Raiders

Derek Carr's performance against the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday Night Football was pitiful. Carr finished 11 of 20 for 137 yards and two interceptions. However, the most frustrating aspect of this performance is that Carr has been playing reasonably well, throwing for multiple touchdowns in five consecutive games.

The Raiders' offensive game plans should be pretty straightforward. Every play should go to either Josh Jacobs or Davante Adams. Any deviation exposes Carr as a below-average NFL quarterback.

Michael Carter, RB, New York Jets

Michael Carter was a popular sleeper pick coming into the season. That was until the New York jets invested a second-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft in the dynamic Breece Hall. Then,  Hall started to emerge as the playmaker that the Jets envisioned until he, unfortunately, suffered a knee injury that ended his season.

Inexplicably, Carter still could not find touches in the Jets backfield with Hall out of the picture. Carter is now playing second fiddle to another rookie back in Zonovan Knight. Knight has emerged out of nowhere into the lead back in the now prolific Jets offense, leaving Carter outside of looking in with his fantasy stock plummeting.

Mike Evans, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Fantasy managers need to find out why Tom Brady dislikes Mike Evans. Maybe it's the fact that Brady has lost it factor, but it seems to me that Evans is lost in the Bucs' offense.

Evans has failed to score a touchdown since Week 3 and has not produced a 100-yard game since Week 8. Yet, fantasy managers continue to wait for that big play from the Brady-Evans connection. Unfortunately, that big play seems to have escaped the Bucs' offensive game plan, and so has Mike Evans.

Mike Gesicki, TE, Miami Dolphins

In the 2nd most prolific passing offense, every component of that passing offense should be a fantasy asset. Well, think again. The Miami Dolphins have two elite fantasy wideouts but do not utilize their tight ends. Mike Gesicki has caught as many passes as fantasy managers did in the past three weeks, zero.

Gesicki is an afterthought in this offense. Fantasy managers still holding their breath waiting on the tight end to provide fantasy production should no longer waste their time or energy.
