Stock Watch: Deion Branch traded to Pats
While Branch's stock has to rise just by virtue of leaving a messy Seahawks offense and joining a productive Tom Brady-led one, I have doubts that this is anything more than acquiring reasonable depth. Branch should increase production, but seeing as how he's tied for 60th in standard wide receiver scoring in fantasy right now, there's nowhere to go but up. His 13 receptions led Seahawks wide receivers, and his lone touchdown from Week 1 tied for the team lead, so it's faint praise. He'll get more opportunity in New England, and he should be on ESPN's most-added list this week. Branch is currently owned in 3.8 percent of ESPN standard leagues.
To see whose fantasy value is rising and whose is falling heading into Week 6, you must be an ESPN Insider.
