The Seahawks scored another victory in their preseason Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The starters played the longest game this preseason, with both sides of the ball playing into the third quarter. Check out who’s stock went up or whose stock went down heading into the last week of the preseason.

Stock Up: Tanner McEvoy

McEvoy was losing ground in the wide receiver competition with Kasen Williams’ performance in the preseason. But McEvoy showed why he can be valuable to the team against the Chiefs. McEvoy made a leaping touchdown grab, which put the game in doubt for the Chiefs. He used his size and athleticism to make the play. He could become a valuable red-zone target for the Seahawks if he is on the active roster in 2017.

Stock Down: Kasen Williams

The past two weeks, Williams’ performance has brought his stock up. And by up, I mean WAY up. But against the Chiefs, Williams barely saw any action. But when in the game, he was not being targeted like he has been the previous two weeks. Williams was only targeted twice, making one catch for only four yards. This doesn’t mean that he is at risk to lose his roster, as he has proved valuable on special teams. But Williams’ stock was due to come down at some point.

Stock Up: Rees Odhiambo

Odhiambo got his first start at left tackle against the Chiefs, and except for one play, played very well. He was thrust into the starting role after George Fant tore his ACL. Odhiambo had been working mainly as guard before the Fant injury. But against the Chiefs, Odhiambo did a tremendous of shutting down pass rushers, except when he got his hands swatted away and gave up a sack. But in his first game playing exclusively left tackle, he played very well, given the circumstances.

Stock Down: Trevone Boykin

Boykin’s performance against the Chiefs was not good, and that is an understatement. Boykin’s only completion went to a Chiefs defender, as he went 0/6 with an interception. Pete Carroll did not seem that concerned about Boykin’s performance, but it is not a good sign that the likely backup quarterback could not complete a pass in a preseason game.

Stock Up: Austin Davis

Even though one backup quarterback struggled, the other played marginally well. Davis completed all five of his passes, including the touchdown to McEvoy. The touchdown pass was a perfect throw that only McEvoy could grab. Davis has shown this preseason that he could be a valuable third quarterback if Wilson or Boykin struggle or get injured.

Stock Down: Mike Davis

Davis entered the Chiefs game as the leading rusher for the Seahawks this preseason. But it did not show against Kansas City, as he rushed six times, but only managed to get 11 yards. Davis was competing for the fourth running back job with Chris Carson, but with Carson having another solid game, it pretty much sealed Davis’ fate with his lackluster performance.
