IDP Stock Market Weekly: Week 4

Hot Stock

CB  Tra’Davious White (BUF): The rookie corner for the Bills, has been playing lights out thru the first three weeks of the season. It’s normal for teams to test rookies anytime they see them on the field, which for fantasy owners is a big plus cause that’s more chances for the rook to make plays. That’s just exactly what White has been doing to this point. He has recorded 16 tackles, 2 for a loss, 7 pass breakups and 1 interception. I expect him to continue to shine as long as teams keep testing him. As of today, he is must own in all leagues. Investment Rating (5)


LB  Deone Bucannon (ARZ): The best time to invest in any stock is when the price is low, as is the case with Bucannon. He has missed the first three games of the season with an ankle injury. Bucannon is now on schedule to return in a week, versus the 49ers. Most owners are down on him due to the injury, and you might be able to get him cheap in a trade. He might be a little rusty initially but should return to form in no time. So, get him now while his value (only owned in 2% of Yahoo leagues at the moment) is still low because a good game this week will shoot his shares back up. Investment Rating (4)

    LB  Kendell Beckwith (TB): With all the injuries at this position, you may be in the market for a cheap fix, to get you by over the next few weeks. Beckwith is a great buy-low option with mid/high return potential. He is going to see plenty of playing time with Kwon Alexander, Lavonte David and Noah Spence injured. All of which could miss this week or longer. Beckwith has a favorable matchup as well, versus the Giants. Who knows, this could be the audition he needs to earn eyes of the coaching staff. With him owned in only 1% of Yahoo leagues, he is a waiver wire steal right now. Investment Rating (4)

    S/LB  Miles Killebrew (DET): This is one of those rare players that fantasy owners love, in that they are listed at one position, but play others. Killebrew is a safety in most leagues but sees a good deal of plays each week, as an LB. Those plays are instant value boost, and he should be rostered in all leagues. He’s currently owned in only 4% of Yahoo leagues, which is crazy to me. Investment Rating (4)

Liquidate / Sell

LB  Sean Lee (DAL): One the better scoring fantasy defensive players in fantasy, comes with concerns this week as Lee has missed practice all week with a hamstring issue. The injuries can linger depending on the severity. He is currently listed as questionable, and fantasy owners should take precautions, not only this week but possibly longer. If you have room to stash him on IR, then that would be wise, but don’t drop him. He will get healthy and be ready to go soon. Liquidation Rating (2)

DT  Brandon Williams (BAL): Williams is one the league’s best run stoppers, and has been ruled out for week 4 with a foot injury. If you play in standard IDP, this is not as big a blow as those that play in position specific leagues. If you are required to start a DT, then you know the premium value of a good scoring DT. This will be the 2nd week in a row he will be out.  Liquidation Rating (3)

ILB  Jamie Collins (CLE): One of the Browns top players, is going to be out again this week. Collins suffered a concussion in Week 2 versus Baltimore. It’s a bit concerning that he is missing another game, so who knows how long he’ll be out. Also, it’s hard to put a timetable on his return, as concussions vary from player to player. This is a terrible blow for Cleveland’s defense and fantasy owners. So, stash him on IR and get a viable replacement for possibly next couple weeks. Liquidation Rating (3)
