Tevin Coleman (stock up)
You can see why Kyle Shanahan brought in an old face from the Atlanta Falcons in Tevin Coleman. Coleman provides an exciting dynamic to the offense, and showed off his potential for San Francisco.
Shawn Poindexter (stock down)
It feels bad to give wide receiver Shawn Poindexter a stock down, as it is injury rather than play related.
Richie James (stock up)
The easiest way for wide receiver Richie James to get onto the roster is to clinch the role of kick returner, and he looks to be the top contender for the job with some strong performances returning the ball.
Kendrick Bourne (stock up)
While rookie wideout Deebo Samuel got a lot of praise for a run play (which in fairness, was pretty awesome), third-year pro Kendrick Bourne was the top 49ers receiver of the game. While he did have a drop, he made up for it with two catches for 27 yards and a touchdown.
Bourne played 45 snaps, and is clearly being given every chance to cement a spot on the roster.

Joe Staley (stock down)
Left tackle Joe Staley is the undisputed leader of the 49ers offense, but was struggling with the Broncos pass-rush during the game. In fairness, the Broncos have a lot of talented personnel on the defensive line.
49ers interior offensive line (stock down)
This is cheating (spoiler: I’ll do it again in a moment), but the truth is the interior blocking was struggling for a lot of the game. It’s easily the worst aspect of the 49ers offense so far.
49ers pass-rushers (stock up)
Jeremiah Valoaga notched his third sack of the preseason, Kentavius Street looks like he could be a powerful rotational player with a sack, Jay Bromley notched two sacks to put the other reserve defensive linemen on notice, Mark Nzeocha represented the linebackers with a sack of his own and Marcell Harris made sure the secondary didn’t miss out on the fun.
The 49ers pass-rushers look much more of a complete unit than a season ago.
Solomon Thomas (stock up)
The former No. 3 overall draft pick from 2017 looked a much more powerful force on the interior, and would look right at home next to Buckner. He finished with four tackles and a pass breakup.
Jaquiski Tartt (stock up)
The 49ers secondary needed a starter to step up, and Jaquiski Tartt did just that. Tartt was active all over the field, and is easily the best safety the 49ers possess when he’s healthy.
