Stocks to Target this NFL Sunday, 10/31
I said it last week and I'll say it again - If I know one thing, its that no one likes to be bothered on Sundays, so we’ll keep this quick. Let's talk about the most exciting games of the day and how they relate to our favorite stocks and our green portfolios.
The 1pm EST Slate
Buffalo started off Miami’s 6 game losing streak in Week 2 when they ventured down south and clobbered ‘em, 35-0, also sending Tua (+14%, $4.51/share) into a 3 week stand on the IR. Despite the loss to Atlanta, Tua came back to life last week and instilled some hope in fans & shareholders alike… but how long will that last? The Bills defense will be well rested coming off their bye, and combine that prowess with the fact that Miami allows the 7th most QB pressures… its not looking good for Tua & Co. Jaylen Waddle (+3%, $5.98/share) has been one of few bright spots for the Dolphins this season, being up +21% on the season, maybe he can continue that. All that being said – its on the other side of the field that our interest really piques. The Dolphins allow the 5th most fantasy points per game to opposing receivers… so we’re watching Emmanuel Sanders (+3%, $2.98/share) & Stefon Diggs (+6%, $10.04/share). We’re still infatuated with Dawson Knox (-9%, $1.50/share), still up +117% on the season despite that -9% after his last appearance, but he’s been ruled out for at least one more game, so we’ll get back on the Cole Beasley (+20%, $6.26/share) train. The Bills are going to steamroll these divisional rivals, and there will be gains to be had on maybe all Bills pass-catchers… we’ll take it where we can get it.
- Atlanta seems to finally have unlocked Kyle Pitts (+21%, $6.41/share) as more than TE, something like a cheat code, and it’s showing returns – he’s up +57% since finding his footing.
- Derrick Henry (-6%, $37.40/share) will likely go back to his role as a runner, leaving the pass-throwing behind. Despite the brief dip last week, he’s up +77% on the season so far.
- Was the brutal, embarrassing, and sad beatdown by the Patriots not enough. The Jets are an enzyme for good stock performance. Buy the Bengals. Buy all the Bengals. Did you know Ja’Marr Chase (+31%, $11.69/share) is a Bengal?
- With the injuries to Chubb (0%, $8.75/share) and Hunt (-6%, $14.56/share), D’Ernest Johnson (+30%, $1.71/share) has established himself as something like the third head of a three-headed, not two-headed, monster. The Browns run the ball and they run it well, despite who the engine is. And also – Johnson might just be awesome.
- Stafford (+7%, $6.55/share) and Cooper Kupp (+20%, $9.61/share) have been an unstoppable force these past few weeks. The Texans are barely trying to win, and now they have to deal with the trade rumors for their former QB – likely not going to help. Kupp is up +103% on the season, and we’re expecting him and his best friend / QB to stroll into some more alpha this afternoon.
