Week 5 Stock Report
Each week I will highlight players and teams who have seen their value rise or fall during the previous week. I will also try to highlight players that have favorable schedules coming up that could give them a boost in value. Remember that you always want to sell high and buy low!
San Diego Super Chargers
Philip Rivers continues to show that you don’t have to have a pretty throwing motion to be an accurate quarterback in the NFL (take note Tim Tebow). Rivers shot-putted himself to a 400 yard passing game and even brought Antonio Gates back to life. Don’t look now, but Gates has put up three solid games so far this year. If you are hurting at TE, try to pry him away from an owner who probably has him sitting on the bench as his backup tight end. Even though Rivers is putting up a ton of yards, he doesn’t really have a top receiver that he leans on each week. I wouldn’t recommend using any Charger receivers in 10 or 12 team leagues.
