10 things fluctuating in the NFL stock market …
UP – If you do not own the No. 1 waiver priority, you’re likely not getting the hottest pickup of the week. Frank Gore left the game with an ankle injury and the early prognosis is he could be out until the 49ers return from their Week 6 bye.
Kevin Walter – UP – The Texans were playing one of the worst defenses in the league, but Walter added a spark to the
Percy Harvin – UP – Harvin has used his dynamic play to provide another dangerous weapon alongside Adrian Peterson on the Vikings. This weekend he was able produce on special teams with a 101-yard kickoff return. Harvin has scored a touchdown in every game this season.

Undefeated in September
There are seven teams that will enter October without a blemish on their record. They include the Jets, Giants, Vikings, Ravens, Saints, Broncos and Colts. Most surprising?
Look for the Eagles to have a big October as they face the Bucs, Raiders and Redskins after their October 4 bye.
