Fantasy Football Who Is Hot 'n Who Is Not After Preseason Week #1

Thearon W. Henderson

We have updated out top 200 as well as listing who is hot and who is not in the fantasy football world after the 1st week of preseason

Welcome back to another fantasy football update after watching all of week 1 in preseason, I will list who made a move upward or downward as well as an updated top 200 rankings which list where the player was in the previous list 2 weeks ago and where they rank now for a non PPR draft.

To steal a term from the classic TV show "The Jefferson's", Who is moving on up?:

Daryl Richardson - He has taken hold of the Rb1 position on the Rams and looks poised to get between 200-240 carries.

Christine Michael - He has clearly taken the RB2 job after almost 90 yards this week and is a must handcuff if you are to draft Marshawn Lynch.

Vance McDonald - He got 8 targets while only catching 4 for the 49ers but with many targets available with their awful receivers he could be a nice TE2.

Chris Givens - He is another Ram who solidified his status as the top of his position and has a chance to get to 1000 yards in his sophomore season as Bradford continue to look for him deep.

Ryan Mathews - He only had 3 carries but last season's bust could give great value after round 5 in a snake draft and does not have much competition.

Fred Davis - He looked healthy and is a sneaky end of draft TE1 for those who forgot about him due to injury.

Roy Helu - He has solidified his position as RB2 and is a must handcuff for those who draft Morris, and sometimes Shanahan can change his mind.

Jerome Kerley - He is clearly a Wr1 for a struggling Jets offense but is a solid end of draft pick with upside.

LeGarrette Blount - He is back from the dead and with Boldin out the 1st 4 games, plus the Pats being possibly run heavy, he is a run heavy handcuff for those with Ridley.

Kenbrell Thompkins - He has emerged as the WR2 in the early goings and seems to have Brady's trust, usually Wr's do not break through for the Pats but maybe this is the time?

DeSean Jackson - All camp reports are high, and add in the prospect of an open offense. Michael Vick's playing well and looking comfortable make him a great pick mid draft; especially for those going RB-RB-RB in the 1st 3 rounds.

Rashad Jennings - The backup to the always injured Darren McFadden; another guy to look at the end of draft for a bye week RB.

Dustin Keller - The Dolphins look to have OL issues and he could be the target of a ton of drop offs and quick passes.

DeAndre Hopkins - I am not sure how much the Texans will throw, but Johnson is getting older and has been injury prone in the past, so a guy like this is all upside. As a late pick, he could be a win for fantasy owners.

Cordarrelle Patterson - He is a very raw rookie, but has explosive talent and the Vikings look to be finding more ways to use him.

Moving on Down

Isiah Pead - The latest fumble is a killer, but he is not dead yet. If he wants a shot, he needs to pick it up big time.

A.J. Jenkins - He was invisible last year. he has a huge chance to make a run for a WR2 spot this week.

Steven Jackson - He is now 30 years old, with a ton of mileage and he looked at least a step slow in Week #1. It may be him just pacing himself, but history says there is a better chance of him under-performing his draft slot than over performing.

Mike Gillislee - He is now buried at Rb3 with the coaches love for Daniel Thomas.

Bilal Powell - He may be the Jets Rb2, but looked just like he did last year and even with an Ivory injury, I cannot see him making a dent.

David Wilson - The Giants have zero trust in his short yardage and pass blocking abilities, which limits his touches even his explosive ability.

Aaron Dobson - He seems to have been passed over by the other rookie on the depth chart, but continue to keep an eye on him.
