Top Risers: CORE Tier

  • DeAndre Hopkins (+$10.00, 42%)
  • Stefon Diggs (+$4.97, 18%)
  • Jaylen Waddle (+$4.50, 33%)
  • Rhamondre Stevenson (+$3.36, 43%)
  • Aaron Jones (+$3.50, 32%)

Top Fallers: CORE Tier

  • Joe Burrow (-$34.1, 71%)
  • Nick Chubb (-$10.29, 51%)
  • Jalen Hurts (-$8.5, 34%)
  • Saquon Barkley (-$6.15, 33%)
  • Tyreek Hill (-$3.49, 17%)

Observations: Risers

For the second straight week, DeAndre Hopkins leads the Risers category - this time with a $10 increase in the floor price of his CORE cards. Hopkins did not receive the SuperStar status as a part of the Week 9 update and has scored 23.3 and 36.9 DKFP, respectively in his two games back from suspension. He's one of the best non-SuperStar options at the wide receiver position. 

Stefon Diggs has seen an 18 percent increase in his CORE cards this week. Although second in receiving yards, Diggs could not have earned the SuperStar designation unless Josh Allen lost his. Diggs and the Bills are 12-point road favorites against the Jets this week.

After his teammate Tyreek Hill left him to join the SuperStars, Jaylen Waddle has seen a 33 percent increase in his CORE cards. With the new SuperStar changes, it will be more challenging for players to jam in the Tua-Hill-Waddle stacks that have been so successful this season.

Rhamondre Stevenson has seen a 43 percent increase in his CORE cards coming off of four-straight games with more than 20 DKFP. He has an enticing home matchup against the Colts this week. Despite the return of Damien Harris, Stevenson still received 16 carries and seven targets in Week 8 against the Jets. 

Aaron Jones has seen a 32 percent increase in his CORE cards preceding a date with a Lions' run defense that has been abysmal all season. Now that Nick Chubb and Saquon Barkley earned the SuperStar designation, the Packers’ running back looks like one of the best players to roster in Reignmakers.

Observations: Fallers

Joe Burrow has seen a whopping $34.10 decrease in the floor price of his CORE cards since Monday morning. Because of his inflated value due to playing in the Monday night game, and the surprise announcement of his earning the SuperStar designation at halftime, it comes as no surprise to see Burrow lose this much value on his CORE cards.

Also playing in the Monday night game, Nick Chubb saw his value decrease 51 percent after earning the SuperStar designation. Going forward it won’t be so easy for players to roster this season’s leading rusher in Reignmakers.

Despite being a fantasy-darling with his rushing floor this season, Jalen Hurts has seen his value drop 34 percent after becoming a SuperStar on Monday night. Hurts’ top target A.J. Brown now looks like a top Reignmakers play weekly. 

Saquon Barkley earned the SuperStar title on Monday, so it comes as no surprise that his CORE card value decreased by 33 percent. With his SuperStar designation, it is now much harder to build lineups around Barkley. 

The final player to earn the SuperStar designation, Tyreek Hill, saw just a 17 percent decrease in value this week. With almost 1,000 yards through eight games, Hill has been the best wide receiver in the NFL this season. Even with the SuperStar designation, "The Cheetah" should be one of the top plays each week.
