Fantasy football draft season is just around the corner, and soon we'll have to make some tough decisions. We are in the thick of training camps, which means there are no shortage of reports and moves by each team, causing fantasy stocks to continually rise and fall.
There's been a lot of news surrounding Lamar Miller, Derrius Guice and Sony Michel in particular. With that in mind, here's a breakdown of each player's stock ahead of the upcoming fantasy football season.
1. Lamar Miller, RB, Houston Texans — Buy
The Texans recently announced that they cut backup running back D'Onta Foreman, which could really help Lamar Miller's fantasy value. Currently going as RB30, buy the perpetually underrated back. Miller is one of the more consistent producers in fantasy, and now looks like he won't face much competition for carries, even with the recent addition of Duke Johnson.
2. Sony Michel, RB, New England Patriots — Hold
Sony Michel is a talented running back that has struggled to stay healthy early in his career. However, with the amount of goal-to-go carries he could see, along with the reports of him working as a pass-catcher, Michel offers some intriguing upside. Michel's injury history makes drafting him a bit risky, but he has the talent to become a reliable RB2, making him a nice value at RB25.
3. Derrius Guice, RB, Washington Redskins — Sell
Derrius Guice flashed enough ability at LSU to become a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. However, Washington has one of the most crowded backfields in the NFL. Do you really think Adrian Peterson, who ran for 1,042 yards last season, will quietly take a backseat? Additionally, Washington might be the worst offense for fantasy purposes this season, which could seriously impact Guice's production. He's a risky investment at RB27.
