Players Trending Up: Dalton Kincaid, J.J. McCarthy, Zamir White (Fantasy Football)

This is one of the more exciting NFL offseasons in recent memory. There have been impactful free agent signings and some huge trades. Those transactions helped some players’ value and hurt others. Let’s highlight some of those fantasy football players that are trending up.

Fantasy Football Players Trending Up

Dalton Kincaid (TE – BUF)

Some rookie tight ends made an impact last season. Dalton Kincaid was one of them. He finished the season as the TE11, but from Weeks 7-18, he was TE9 and averaged 11 points per game in that span.

The Stefon Diggs trade puts Kincaid in a great position to be one of Buffalo’s leading receivers. He was second to Diggs in target share but had a much higher completion percentage (82.8%). That run starting from Week 7 was when he led the team in completions.

We must also look at the red zone numbers and see a positive regression. He was second in red zone catches and third in targets. The two people ahead of him were Diggs and Gabe Davis, both are no longer in Buffalo.

The Bills will likely not continue with the current wide receiver room; they’ll either draft one early or trade for one. Either way, Kincaid built an incredible rapport with Josh Allen that will continue into next season.

J.J. McCarthy (QB – Michigan)

As we get closer to the NFL draft, we will hear names pop up as the rumor mill turns. One of those names getting all the buzz is National Champion quarterback J.J. McCarthy.

There are talks of him being selected No. 2 overall and several teams are interested in trading up for him.

Zamir White (RB – LV)

The writing was on the wall that the Raiders wouldn’t re-sign Josh Jacobs. What they did in free agency shows they are committed to making Zamir White the featured back.

His performance in his last three games shows he can handle the RB1 role, averaging 4.9 yards per carry on 67 carries.

It will be Aidan O’Connell, Gardner Minshew or potentially a rookie at quarterback. None of those situations give confidence to the passing game. Secondly, they only added Alexander Mattison in free agency.
