Stock Up: Bijan Robinson, RB, Atlanta Falcons
For whatever reason, the Atlanta Falcons just have not used rookie running back Bijan Robinson the way most fantasy players expected that they would. Instead, head coach Arthur Smith has insisted on sprinkling in several other offensive players such as Tyler Allgeier, Cordarrelle Patterson and Jonnu Smith.
But in the last two games, fantasy owners have started to see what they have been patiently waiting for. In his last two games, Robinson has rushed for 186 yards and two touchdowns. He added a receiving touchdown through the air and is coming off of a two-score performance against the New Orleans Saints.
Smith and his staff are finally giving Robinson more touches so the hope is that he doesn't start to take those away for no apparent reason.
Stock Down: Anyone on the Patriots
Usually, you can make the case for at least one player on every team to be an option each week in fantasy football. But I can't advocate starting a single player on this incredibly bad New England Patriots team any further this season.
That includes running back Rhamondre Stevenson. He has yet to rush for 100 yards in a game this season and has scored just four touchdowns on the ground. He could still be a decent flex option if you have to, but the other options would have to be pretty poor.
The Patriots, mostly because of terrible QB play that has just sunken the value of guys like Juju Smith-Schuster and Hunter Henry, are terrible.
