Packers-Steelers Fantasy Reaction: Jake Kumerow trends up www.thepackersfootballauthentic.com , J’Mon Moore trends down Plenty of players’ fantasy football stocks are rising after Thursday’s preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. And why wouldn’t they be? The final score was 51-34 in favor of the Packers, so there was a good amount of offensive opportunity. We might have to take a grain of salt with these results, because there literally haven’t been this many points scored in a Packers preseason game ever. Still, scoring builds confidence and some of these young guys could use every bit they can get to make the final roster.Building off of a solid first preseason game, we broke down whose stock is still trending up and whose might be going down.Stock upDavante AdamsAdams only had one catch, but he took a quick slant for 27 yards. He’s continually making it look easy and he’s ready to go for Week 1. For those looking to make Adams a first or second-round pick, there shouldn’t be any worries about him disappointing you.Jimmy GrahamGraham scored his first Rodgers-to-Graham TD in the first quarter which was great to see. He was really just standing in the end zone posting up like he’s supposed to and the defensive back didn’t stand a chance. Graham was lined up close to the line of scrimmage and primarily in a two-point stance for the game so, as expected, he should be running plenty of routes this season.Aaron RodgersQB1 started the game and had a short field to work with in his lone drive. Finished 2/4, 35 yards, a touchdown, and a vintage 12-men-on-the-field penalty draw. And he made it out unscathed despite some close contact. No rust, no fuss. Jake KumerowKumerow and his excellent flow took a sideline reception 82-yards to the house. That was the exclamation point on a night in which he hauled in all three of his targets for 114 yards. Making his second big play of the preseason, the UW-Whitewater product capitalized off of a bad angle by the defensive back Green Bay Packers T-Shirt , then rumbled into the end zone and possibly onto the 53-man roster. For redraft leagues, he’s probably best left undrafted. For dynasty leagues, however, he’s looking like a good prospect to roster.Mason CrosbyKickers are people, too! Crosby was busy on Thursday night with six extra points and three field goals, two of which were over 50 yards. The 33-year old can see a great benefit if Rodgers’ chemistry with Adams and Graham continues to build. Stock downTy MontgomeryTy finished with four carries for only 10 yards—again, not the best offensive line showing tonight. He also had a pair of nifty catches for 15 yards. However, Montgomery had his second special teams mishandling of the preseason, dropping a fumble on a kick return. Jamaal Williams exited the game with a minor ankle injury, however, so this running back situation is still worth monitoring. J’Mon MooreMoore saw plenty of opportunities, but failed to really capitalize on any of them. He’s struggled with the a case of the drops and it’s getting harder for these backup quarterbacks to trust him. They want to complete passes for their own sakes.The Packers will continue their preseason in Oakland against the Raiders on 08/24. Of all the players the Green Bay Packers have drafted in the past few years, there was no one more enigmatic than Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.Let’s go back to 2014 when he was drafted.Nearly every draft expert and their mother had Clinton-Dix mocked to the Packers and when he was actually selected by former general manager Ted Thompson, Packers fans were elated. Remember Green Bay Packers Hats , this was in the immediate aftermath of M.D. Jennings and the second season after the departure of Charles Woodson.Packers fans had thought the team had found its next great safety, one that would finally fill the void left by Nick Collins whose career ended with a neck injury in 2011. For awhile, it looked like this was the case. Clinton-Dix struggled at times as a rookie and even made two interceptions of Russell Wilson in that ill-fated NFC Championship, but he kept improving and made the Pro Bowl in 2016.Then everything went downhill.He became more outspoken about locker room issues and his play slipped on the field. Clinton-Dix was constantly out of position and missed tackles. Entering a contract year in 2018, Clinton-Dix made it clear he expected to play elsewhere in 2019 (the NFL’s version of Eric Bledsoe telling the NBA he no longer wanted to be a Phoenix Sun) and with effort lacking and his play still flat lining despite leading the league in interceptions, the Packers shipped him off to Washington for a fourth round pick.Now the Packers are back to the drawing board at safety (though not as bad as when Clinton-Dix arrived) and fans are left wondering what could have been. You can read more on what led to the former Alabama standout’s downfall in today’s cheese curds.Unraveling the mystery of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix’s decline—PackersNews.comA single Pro Bowl appearance in four seasons does not entitle you to a large contract. The Packers know this, but apparently Clinton-Dix did not. That led to increase behavioral problems and now he’s in Washington.Football comes ‘full circle’ for Davante Adams this Sunday—Packers.comOn the opposite side of the coin, look at Adams. He had a disastrous sophomore season but refocused himself and is now arguably a top-five receiver in the NFL and even made Jordy Nelson expendable. Clinton-Dix could have learned a lot from his teammate, who had his own breakout game against the New England Patriots in 2014.Packers’ Tramon Williams moving from cornerback to safety—ESPNWilliams may not be the player he used to be but he has range, is intelligent and is still a ball hawk. In other words he’s everything the player he’s replacing wasn’t.Packers CB Bashaud Breeland ready to contribute to new-look secondary—Packers WireBreeland was considered one of the top cornerbacks available this spring until concerns over a freak football injury kept him unsigned well into the regular season. Now healthy and better versed in the Green Bay defense, he’s ready to make an impact.Florida man rescued from 30-foot well—UPIThe adventures of Florida Man continue. Going down a well just to say you did it is not a very鈥?well鈥?thought out plan.
