One of the main trends driving price action over the past 14 hours has been the Buffalo Bills/Los Angeles Rams matchup, which opens the 2022 NFL season. Collectors appear to be focusing on building lineups for the season-opening Showdown slate, which takes place on September 8. Both McKenzie and Diggs saw significant increases in floor price, though it is important to note that only 43 of a total 575 editions of McKenzie's Booster Set Core card are currently in circulation. Notably, the #1/200 serial McKenzie Genesis Core card sold for $200 yesterday morning (serial number serves as a tie-breaker in the event multiple teams finish with the same score, which is especially important in single-game "Showdown" contests where player options are more limited.).

On the other side of the game, Rams wide receivers Cooper Kupp (+4%) and Allen Robinson (+11%) missed the cut, but also saw their floor prices rise.
Interestingly enough, some of the biggest losers over the past 14 hours have also come from the season opener. Both starting quarterbacks in the game -- Matthew Stafford and Josh Allen -- saw their average floor price fall by approximately $2. One possible explanation here may be that collectors are taking profits after finding these cards in packs, as both Allen and Stafford rank within the top 10 in terms of most expensive player cards in the Core tier. It's also possible we may see more downward pressure here, with so much of the supply currently hidden in packs. Only 19% of Allen's Core cards and 17% of Stafford's are currently in circulation.
