I'm a little late this week with the Stock Watch, but the Rangers have me so depressed it took a little while to get my fingers to work. So, without any delay, here is your Week 4 Stock Watch. Remember, these guys are hot and look good for the future. If there is a trade in your future, these are fine targets (and guys to trade away, too).
Matt Schaub (QB, Hou.) - A poor Week 1 had folks running from the Texans signal caller. But he has bounced back quite nicely and looks to be meeting the lofty preseason predictions. With Kevin Walter back (more on him in a minute), Schaub has quite a few weapons around him. And if Steve Slaton and the running game get going, Schaub's going to be a top 6 QB.
Carson Palmer (QB, Cinc.) - Just a few years ago, Palmer was a top fantasy QB. But a wrecked knee, a long rehab and a sorry team around him simply killed his value. Guess what -- it could be coming back. He still hasn't put up big numbers, but he is looking more comfortable and that is a good sing.
Brett Favre (QB, Minn) - I had a chance to make a post-draft trade for Favre to serve as my backup QB in one league. I chose Delhomme instead. Uh. Big mistake.
Cedric Benson (RB, Cinc.) - This is the Benson the Bears thought they were drafting out of Texas several years ago. He is getting the carries and putting up decent yardage. He won't catch a ton of passes, but the TDs will come.
Willis McGahee (RB, Balt.) - Before the knee injury in college, McGahee looked like a sure-thing future All-Pro in the NFL. He has had a few ups and a ton of downs, but McGahee is looking good right now. He is on pace for 32 TDs -- that's kinda good.
Donald Driver (WR, GB) - Who said Driver was over-the-hill? He has turned into Aaron Rodger's most reliable target. He's playing at a high level right now.
Jerricho Cotchery (WR, NYJ) - With a rookie QB at the helm, I was down on Cotchery coming into the season. That was a mistake.
DeSean Jackson (WR, Phi) - All Jackson does is catch TD passes. Long TD passes. Even with a bad groin. Too bad I benched him last week on two different teams.
Kevin Walter (WR, Hou) - There was a little preseason buzz about Walter this year, but a injury kept him out of the first two games. If his Week 3 performance in his first game back is any indication, you may want to get this guy.
Dolphin QBs - Pennington is down for the count. Henne has no experience. Tyler Thigpen may be the best option. Let that sink in.
Frank Gore (RB, SF) - He's hurt. He's always hurt. That is not a good thing. If you have him on your roster, try to move him. Fast.
Clinton Portis (RB, Wash) - The Redskins are not a good team and Portis is part of the reason. 42 yards on 12 carries against the Lions just isn't going to get it done.
Mike Bell (RB, NO) - How, it was good while it lasted. Pierre thomas is back and went 126 and 2 TDs on just 14 carries. Mr. Bell, your seat on the bench is now ready.
Braylon Edwards (WR, Clev) - The Browns have no QB. Edwards has no value.
Terrell Owens (WR, Buff) - He had 0 receptions last week and the whining and complaining has already begun. That was the shortest honeymoon yet for T.O. This one could get ugly fast.
Chris Chambers (WR, SD) - Has he even played? The sad thing is, the answer to that question is yes. He just doesn't score.
