NFL Week 5 MVPs – Beckett Pricing Insider

1. Deshaun Watson

I could just has easily picked Will Fuller for this spot after he caught 14 passes for 217 yards and three scores (that could just as easily have been 5). But I have to go with his quarterback, Deshaun Watson who notched 426 yards passing with five scores and a perfect passer rating. Watson came into the league in 2017 and made an instant impact. Before injury sidelined him, his values were the highest among the rookies that year. His values have gone up and down a little since then, but he has always had top dollar values. If he keeps putting up big numbers collectors will spend even more to get his cards and possibly go higher than his 2017 values.

2. Teddy Bridgewater

It’s been a long time since we considered Teddy Bridgewater an MVP. When he took over for the Vikings, he was a top rookie and his values were among the highest in his rookie class. Then injury took him out of the game for over a year and the Vikings moved on from him. Luckily for him, he found a home as a backup for the Saints. With Drew Brees injured, Bridgewater has a chance to shine again and he is not squandering that chance. Throwing for over 300 yards and four touchdowns will make collectors take notice again. His values have definitely weakened, but they could be on the rise again soon.

3. Aaron Jones

The Green Bay Packers aren’t known for having great running backs, or even having a running back get over 100 yards. On a day when Aaron Rodgers didn’t exactly set the world on fire, another Aaron put the team on his shoulders. Jones set a Packers running back scoring record on Sunday’s win, with four touchdowns and rushing for 107 yards. His Rookie Cards have sold well, while not exactly breaking the bank. Being on the Packers has definitely helped his values as well.

    ive been a member of becketts for many years,took a break from collecting and then got back into it a while back and joined again. It seems to me that charging a few bucks more to read articles on line , especially when I pay 300 per yer membership fees , is a bit on the cheap side. Years back when i signed up i even got 8 free cards graded. Thats gone and you keep raising prices to the point of it not being worth the money anymore. I ran a business for over 40 years and when you offer less and raise prices,that is not a good combination. so my question is…….is it worth charging a loyal customer a few bucks a month to read extra articles or are you going to continue to nickle and dime us anyway you can. Sorry but thats just the way I feel….Steve

      @Steve — I’m guessing you’re referring to Beckett PLUS articles? One of the main idea behind those is to offer an alternative for those who are interested in articles from the magazine but don’t necessarily have a need for the price guide. Most of the feature-style articles behind the paywall are from current issues of the print magazine. Print issue are $10 each, a month of Beckett PLUS is $5 (or $40 for the year) and you get articles from five magazines plus Vintage Collector, which comes out every other month. The site here also has tons of content that is free.
