At this point in the off season, whose stock is rising? How about falling? Mike Donnelly of turnonthejets.com takes a look at this very issue in an article “Stock Watch”. Here is a couple of excerpts, first of guys undervalued, and on the rise:
RB Joe McKnight – Right now you’d be able to buy some Joe McKnight stock pretty cheaply, and with just 323 rushing yards in two seasons, it’s understandable why. But trading stocks is all about value, and there’s plenty of value in the former USC star since he’s he’s going to be taking over for the departed LaDainian Tomlinson. I expect McKnight to form a very nice tandem with starter Shonn Greene, and this will be his breakout season. As the team’s top dual threat, he can easily get over 1,000 total yards from scrimmage. Joe McKnight stock will be a money maker.
Here is an excerpt from the overvalued section:
QB Tim Tebow – I wish I owned some Tebow stock. The way everyone in the media talks him up, he’d be one of the most valuable commodities in the whole league. That wouldn’t stop me from tripping over myself running to sell though, because after the 2012 season in which he starts 0 games and is merely a role player, it will be worth far less.
Sorry guys, this time it isn’t me talking down about Tebow, don’t take this one out on me.
It’s a great read, go and read the whole thing here
