Joe Burrow leads the way this week with a 54 percent increase on the floor price of his CORE cards. Burrow looks poised to be the highest-rostered card in Reignmakers this weekend as he and Brock Purdy are the only non-SuperStar options at the position. Unlike Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts, Burrow can be played with Christian McCaffrey, who stands above the rest at the running back position.
Jalen Hurts has seen his CORE price increase 47 percent prior to the Eagles’ matchup with the tough San Francisco defense. With question marks surrounding the status of Mahomes’ mobility following his high ankle sprain last week, Reignmakers players seem to be preferring Hurts as their SuperStar quarterback.
Ja’Marr Chase is the obvious stacking partner with what should be an incredibly popular Burrow and thus has seen a 39 percent increase this week. Chase deserves the top spot at the position, however, at the time of writing, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd CORE cards can be bought for $3.25 and $1.95, respectively.
Joe Mixon stands out as the top non-SuperStar running back this week and has deservedly seen a 43 percent floor price increase. Mixon looks like the obvious running back option for anyone choosing to roster Mahomes or Hurts as their SuperStar this week.
Coming off a 14-98-2 line in the Chiefs’ win over the Jaguars on Saturday, Travis Kelce rounds out the “Risers” with a 17 percent increase in his CORE cards. It's worth noting Kelce had his worst game of the season earlier this year against Cincinnati, however, I don’t think that should matter this week in what looks to be an excellent spot for the veteran tight end.
Crashing back down after his monster game against Seattle in the Wild Card round, Brock Purdy has seen his CORE price decrease by 30 percent. As is the case with Purdy every week, his two sets of CORE cards available allow for major fluctuations in price compared to other players.
Jerick McKinnon will look to return to his touchdown-scoring ways in a matchup with the Bengals after registering the most disappointing fantasy performance last week. If Mahomes’ mobility is limited at all this weekend, McKinnon could benefit from some quick check-downs.
Christian McCaffrey has seen his floor price decrease 19 percent despite being the top option at the running back position. His status as a SuperStar and uncertainty surrounding his calf injury appears to be what is knocking down what is otherwise a favorable spot on paper. There is still time for McCaffrey’s price to rise if and when he ditches the questionable tag.
Isiah Pacheco’s price has slightly dipped as the Chiefs’ running back has yet to flash any sort of upside in the regular or post-season. Needing to score more than once on the ground to return value, Pacheco looks to be getting ignored by Reignmakers players in favor of higher-upside options.
Deebo Samuel has seen a slight decrease most likely due to uncertainty surrounding his ankle injury. In the likely event that Deebo suits up, he draws a tough matchup against the Eagles’ stout secondary, however, his exceptional after-the-catch ability could make the 49ers’ wideout a sneaky buy-low option this week.
