And then there were four!
The NFC Championship battle features the Philadelphia Eagles hosting the San Francisco 49ers. We have enjoyed a lot of success identifying one particular player that can provide not only a quick ROI, but also carry long-term offseason value.
Whether it’s Elijah Mitchell, Travis Etienne or Daniel Jones, we’ve been able to find players whose stock value have increased between 3 and 9% after just one big playoff performance.
Today’s focus is on a player who is entering the prime of his NFL career, yet still hasn’t experienced the breakout season many had believed would occur. This player returned from injury last in the season and has shown all indication that he is ready to ascend to the top NFL player at his position. The conference championship is the perfect time to invest in Philadelphia tight end Dallas Goedert.
Mojo is a whole new pure sports investment — on the entire career of an athlete. The share price is the public's expectations for a player's career based on six objective stats. A player’s value can also be affected by the result of a single game.
Here’s why I’m grabbing up Mojo shares of Dallas Goedert prior to Sunday’s NFC Championship matchup.
Mojo Spotlight: Dallas Goedert
There were high hopes for Dallas Goedert entering this season. He was coming off a 2021 season where he tallied career-highs in receiving yards (830), yards per reception (14.8) and PPR fantasy points per game (11.0). Goedert was finally healthy and was ready to assume his place among the league's top tight ends.
Questions still lingered, however, about quarterback Jalen Hurts. Can he be a true starting quarterback? Wide receiver A.J. Brown was acquired to help improve the offense, which unfortunately appeared to lessen the projected role for Goedert.
After playing just 67.6% of the snaps in Week 3, Goedert’s Mojo stock price plummeted to $10.70. After starting to gain back some value, he suffered a shoulder injury against Washington in Week 10 which again brought doubt to his long-term value.
However, over the past three weeks the 28-year-old tight end has been superb, totaling 18 targets, five red zone targets and 14 receptions on over a 96-snap share. Goedert is completely healthy, playing with a confident franchise quarterback, and seeing critical scoring opportunities.
He has improved his fantasy points per game each season and is just short of his all-time high Mojo stock price of $11.78 per share. Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce and Baltimore’s Mark Andrews are considered the gold standard at the position but will enter the 2023 season with more questions than Goedert. Can Kelce produce again at age 34? Who will be Andrews' quarterback in Baltimore?
If Philadelphia wins the Super Bowl, Goedert will certainly raise his stock by playing a key role. Even if the Eagles do not win the championship, the quarterback, offensive line, and 2022 production all point to a huge season for the Eagles tight end.
Goedert’s stock price is currently a full $2 below Andrews, George Kittle and even former teammate Zach Ertz. He should be at that price point and can reach that value by mid-2023. Entering the prime of his career, Goedert brings elite measurables in an explosive offense that ranked second in points per game this season (28.6).
I love Goedert’s reasonable price at Mojo and see him as a safe bet to reach that $13 per share valuation. That value would equate to a $15% ROI, something our current national stock market can only dream about.
