PredictionStrike Weekly Update: Week 2 Stocks and Stories
We’re going to try something new today, folks. These Weekly Updates typically hit your inbox with more sports than stocks. More stories than returns. More games than gains. More – you get the point. We figure that at the end of each NFL week, we’ll make this newsletter your go-to spot to get the laundry list on all the biggest gains of the week. There are hundreds and thousands of incredible writers out there that you can go to for eloquent commentary and mind-bending analysis on what’s going on in our favorite sports. But what you can’t get there, we’ll makes sure you have a full dose of here. And that’s all news about the sports stock market. So going forward, this newsletter is going to be meant to be a fast breakdown of the biggest movers and biggest drivers in the market. Let’s get into it.
In a prime-time, high stakes (for one team) Sunday night showdown, Lamar Jackson (+12%, $7.42/share) gets his first win against Patrick Mahomes (+2%, $17.48/share), and keeps the Ravens afloat after a weird Week 1 loss and a mountain of disheartening injuries. Outside of Lamar, the winning team’s big stock movements were headlined by Hollywood Brown (+24%, $2.75/share) and new signee Latavius Murray (+9%, $2.21/share). The rest of the cupboard was a bit bare, but nearly as much as it was on the Chiefs side of things – Demarcus Robinson (+32%, $1.08/share) was a pleasant surprise, but outside of an I’ll-Take-It game from Kelce (+5%, $13.53/share), both marquee contributors in Clyde Edwards-Helarie (-15%, $2.17/share) and Tyreek Hill (-15%, $14.41/share) were disappointments across the board.This game was important for one reason, and one reason only: Tom Brady (+9%, $16.91/share) threw FIVE touchdowns, making that at least 4 per game for the 4th consecutive game. His MVP odds are skyrocketing, and he looks like he’s on a mission to go 17-0, break the TD record, and run the SB back for another win. That said, Brady’s touchdowns didn’t come unassisted. Gronk (+18%) went for ANOTHER 2 touchdowns, and is up 85% in JUST two weeks. On top of the on-field production, shareholders seem to see a lot of reason, rightly so, for sustained production from him. Mike Evans (+15%, $7.65/share) calmed fantasy managers and stockholders alike after a shaky Week 1 and notched up two of his own in a smackdown over ATL. Sure, sure – Cordarrelle Patterson (+85%, $1.01/share) made a few people rich, but this game was about the reigning champs.
- Cooper Kupp (+30%, $6.92/share) could be a game-changer, league-winner, portfolio-bellwether. It seems like Stafford went to him every time the Rams needed to make something happen, and he delivered.
- Was Henry Ruggs III (+41%, $1.97/share) rightfully the first receiver off the board in the 2020 draft? He’s making a case for it, at least. Carr (+12%, $9.23/share) looks great when he can throw the ball as far as he can and Ruggs is at the end of the rainbow waiting for it.
- Was Daniel Jones (+24%, $1.20/share) good Thursday night, or is WFT’s defense just not as good as we thought? One or the other MUST be true…
