Stock Report: Another blowout, another week of soaring stocks

Maryland took down Old Dominion at home, 47-10, but whose stock is rising and falling after the win?

Mitch Stringer-USA TODAY Sports

After back-to-back blowouts to start the season, expectations are starting to rise around College Park.

Justifiably so.

Maryland's offense has completely exceeded expectations so far, and Maryland's defense -- while not pitching shutouts -- have held up their end of the bargain more than adequately.

Stock Rising:

WR Stefon Diggs -- A new career-high in receiving yards for the superstar finds his stock rising. Diggs' importance to the offense has diminished his return role.

CB Will Likely -- Diggs' diminished role may be due to Likely. He had two returns for 70 yards on the day and handled himself on the defensive end as well.

RB Brandon Ross -- Ross made a pretty emphatic statement on Saturday. After doing next to nothing against FIU, Ross racked up 149 yards on 18 carries (8.3 ypc) and a touchdown. He put just a little distance between him and Albert Reid for the starting job.

K Brad Craddock -- Well, he didn't miss this weekend?

Stock Holding:

QB C.J. Brown -- Brown couldn't sustain that production he had against FIU on the ground every week, but he's still the key to this offense. Another hugely productive game against Old Dominion.

WR Deon Long -- He didn't have the monster game he had against FIU, but with Diggs' career day that would have been difficult.

The rest of the secondary -- Maryland has as many interceptions as they had all last year. We knew this was a position of strength, but this is impressive. ODU throws the ball a ton, so interceptions should have been expected.

Stock Falling:

CB Jeremiah Johnson -- The cornerback is out 7-8 weeks, a big blow for Randy Edsall. It's tough to really find anyone else with their stock falling after the last two weeks. Hopefully Johnson can come back strong in the final month of the season.

Who else is rising and falling in your eyes?
