Change Log – 8/21/14

Note: No change to Le’Veon Bell or LeGarrette Blount until we get a better idea of the punishment they may or may not receive as a result of their dope arrest last night.


  • Matthew Stafford (+1) – Added a passing TD to Stafford’s totals.
  • Jay Cutler (+1) – I really like Cutler’s ceiling this season. Health will be the only thing that keeps him out of the top ten.
  • Cam Newton (-2) – Personnel concerns are enough to kicked him down a Tier.

Running Backs

  • Doug Martin (N/A) – No change as Sims’ injury reflects more on backups Rainey and James.
  • DeMarco Murray (-2) – Been debating all season how heavy Murray’s use will be in this offense. Still like him a lot but decided to scale him back as I expect Dunbar’s role to more than just change-of-pace.
  • Christine Michael (-7) – Robert Turbin has the trust of the coaching staff. If Lynch goes down, a committee approach will likely be used.
  • Chris Polk (-10) – There is no handcuff for McCoy right now. Polk’s hamstring injury is such a concern the team acquired Kenjon Barner from Carolina.

Wide Receivers

  • Jordy Nelson (+1) – Slight bump for the Packers’ receivers as it appears no true threat at tight end is going to emerge.
  • Randall Cobb (+2) – See above.
  • Jeremy Maclin (-4) – I love Maclin’s ceiling but his injury concerns are growing.
  • Markus Wheaton (+8) – Ranked too low originally. The kid has upside value if he can hold onto the No.2 receiving spot.

Tight Ends

  • Vernon Davis (-2) – The more I study, the more I like Crabtree to steal the show in 49ers passing game this season. Davis is TD-dependent and will be hard-pressed to notch double-digit scores this season.
  • Antonio Gates (-2) – Adjusted the distribution between Gates and Green.
