I named this the stock watch because it's time to take stock of where players are ranked right about now. What have the top picks brought to your team? Where would these players be picked now after we've had two months to see them perform? Sometimes, you regret a pick you made because they're not living up to the expectations you had for them at the beginning of the season. Other times, you might regret the pick simply because you could have gotten the same stats out of a player you could've picked later. I'm going to start off with a couple players from my fantasy team and then go to the general pool of players where I'll take a look at some of the top and mid-ranked players.
