In this article, I want to explore the stocks of some of our players and see who's rising and who's falling. This doesn't mean that these players suck. I just want to talk about who I think could be on the rise and who's on the fall.
Zach Banner- Banner's stock is definitely rising. After an ACL tear ended his 2020 season, he's looking to be back and better than ever. He was the starter before he got injured. Without a doubt, he's going to have to compete for his spot. However, the Steelers Front Office has put a lot of faith in him and his return. He's been working hard to be back and I'm excited to see Zach Banner back in action in the 2021 season. I'm just hoping he can stay healthy.
Chase Claypool- He had an incredible Rookie Season and I am excited to see what Claypool has to offer this team in 2021. His stock is definitely rising. He had 62 receptions on 109 targets. I think he will have an even better year next season. He had 9 touchdowns through the air and 2 on the ground. So, I will be excited to see if he is able to replicate his numbers from his Rookie year and put on a show.
Benny Snell- I would say right now Benny Snell's stock is at an all-time low. It's not all his fault, I think he could potentially improve on his stock this season. However, he was part of the running back room that couldn't pick up a yard on those 3rd and 1s, 4th and 1s, 4th and goals and more. I'm personally not that high on him right now. I mean, is it crazy to say that I don't even know if he will make the team? I'm just now sure. I hope he can do it. I'm definitely pulling for him. However, I need him to show me more this season in order to think that his stock is rising. I want that Benny Snell Football back.
Ben Roethlisberger- Big Ben's stock is at a low right now. I think that right now people would be worried about buying into Ben Roethlisberger because of all the retirement talk and concerns over his deepball. Also, I'm personally worried whether or not he can stay durable enough to carry us throughout the rest of the season and into the playoffs. So, I hope he can prove me wrong. I just am not too confident in Big Ben right now. I know he can win big games, what concerns me is just the stretch.
