Training Camp Risers and Fallers

Sigmund Bloom looks at the players whose values have moved up or down since the open of training camps

Fantasy football necessarily involves our ability to be zen masters and hold contradictions in our heads. "Stick to your guns" competes with "Admit when you were wrong" during camp and the preseason. We've spent months visualizing depth charts, roles, projections, and seasons for these players. Then camps open, preseason football starts, and we have to be able to tell the new reality from the sand castle that will disappear by the morning. Here's a quick snapshot of some players I have moved up or down in my rankings over the last few weeks.

Risers

Quarterback

Drew Brees, NO - Rookie Michael Thomas has been better than anyone could have imagined and third-year UDFA Willie Snead has also impressed this summer, setting Brees up with one of his best sets of weapons in his career when you add in Coby Fleener, Brandin Cooks, and (for now) a healthy C.J. Spiller.

Running Back

Terrance West, BAL - West has been turning heads since the preseason opened and he could push his way into part of the Ravens backfield on early downs.

Devontae Booker, DEN - Booker needs to work on his pass protection, but he is poised to win the backup running back job, which means he would be a C.J. Anderson injury away from being a fantasy starter. Even if Anderson stays healthy, Booker could get a lot of work on a run-first team.
