The Fantasy Stock Watch takes a look at the biggest trends based on the transactions of users on NFL.com fantasy.
Most added: Torrey Smith
No surprise that Smith would be the most-sought after receiver after exploding for three touchdowns against St. Louis in Week 3. Smith is playing the Jets this week, and only seven teams have given up less fantasy points to receivers than the Jets. If Smith gets trapped on Revis Island, he could have a hard time reproducing those stat numbers.
Most dropped: Kenny Britt
And again, no surprise that Britt was dropped by nearly everybody after he suffered a season-ending knee injury.
Most added: Daniel Thomas
The Dolphins have moved on from the Reggie Bush era, and fantasy enthusiasts have responded by making Thomas the most added running back of the week. Thomas has a tough matchup against the Chargers this week.
Most dropped: Reggie Bush
Bush has been the most released fantasy running back on NFL.com, kind of a surprise because he still has some value left. If you did hang on to Bush, keep him buried deep on your bench until the Dolphins start using him as a receiver. Which, honestly, might not happen. Having Steve Slaton awarded to the team is not a good sign.
Most added: Ryan Fitzpatrick
Fitzpatrick was the most added quarterback on NFL.com, which was a complete surprise because...why was he not on your team previously? Second behind Fitzpatrick was Matt Hasselbeck. But if you were one of those lucky guys who got Fitzpatrick this week, he is a great start against Cincinnati on Sunday.
Most dropped: Sam Bradford
The luster is off the once shining Bradford, who many figured would flourish in Josh McDaniels' system. But it has been a struggle, partly because of the schedule. Here is a hint to many of you, if Bradford is available in your league and you have room, add him. His schedule in November is very favorable and he will have some great matchups in the stretch run.
Most added: Scott Chandler
Chandler scored another touchdown this week and fantasy enthusiasts made him the most added tight end. Remember that the Bills have a number of receiving threats, so Chandler is going to do most of his damage in the red zone, but his yardage totals will not be similar to those of Rob Gronkowski and others.
Most dropped: Fred Davis
Davis was dropped the most of any tight end in NFL.com leagues, thanks to only one catch on Monday night at Dallas. That coupled with Chris Cooley's return made Davis expendable in most fantasy users minds.
Most added: Nate Washington
Washington was the second-most added receiver, as he figures to be the top target in Tennessee. The biggest question facing Washington will be if he can respond to bracket coverage.
Most dropped: Chad Ochocinco
Ochocinco was the second-most dropped receiver in NFL.com leagues, and well, I will let you write your own joke here.
