Fantasy stock has changed significantly since the NFL Draft, but how has it specifically impacted players in the AFC North? The Ravens' J.K. Dobbins, the Steelers' Diontae Johnson, and the Browns' David Njoku all factor in to this fantasy stock watch.

Kaitlin O'Toole: With free agency and the draft now over, Sports Illustrated is taking a look at the stock for fantasy players. Joining me now to discuss this is s eyes, fantasy and gambling analyst Dr. Roto and Corey Parson. Let's talk about the AFC North today. Which players have you seen their stock go up and which ones have gone down?

Dr. Roto: All say they've gone down for the fantasy exac. I'll give you two stock up, guys. My first is J.K Dobbins from the Baltimore Ravens. I don't think the Ravens had any idea he was gonna be there for them at the draft because they wouldn't have signed Gus Edwards to that one year tender. But Mark Ingram's about 30. Getting 31 year old, Edwards on a one year tender. It doesn't really matter. Dobbins is the best back of the trio. You watch as this season emerges. This kid is going to get that starting job and he's going to run away with it. When Lamar Jackson's back there with all that mobility, it creates running lanes and he's gonna have them aplenty. My other guys are more under the radar guy. Diontae Johnson from the Pittsburgh Steelers. A lot of people be looking at Juju Smith Schuster and James Washington. But Johnson is the best route runner that the Steelers have. And he didn't even get to play with Ben Roethlisberger last year. Could you imagine what this guy is going to do with Big Ben? I think he's got big upside. And I think you could get him in the middle rounds of your fantasy drafts. 

Kaitlin O'Toole: Corey, which players have caught your eye? 

Corey Parson: I'm gonna to talk about David Njoku, and I think his stock goes down when you talk about players in the AFC North. First of all, we've always heard about in Njoku's talent. We've never seen it. What is this guy, Santa Claus? So, listen, here's the bottom line. Last season, he was only on the field for four games -- caught one touchdown pass. But listen, the Browns, for the most part were a terrible team last year. Addition, they bring in Austin Hooper. You get a healthy Odell Beckham, not to mention Jarvis Landry. They've got two studs in the backfield. A guy that can't stay healthy is not gonna get much reception, so David Njoku stock down, he's off my board altogether.

Kaitlin O'Toole: All right, guys, thank you so much for your insight. I really appreciate it. For all the latest fantasy and gambling analysis, stay with us on SI.com.
