Yeah, don't read too much into small drops in the Fall version of the list because of new additions. Same for the spring, when some players will graduate off the list, so small bumps up are to be expected as well.

As someone who took part in the committee to make the Top 50, I can say that Bjugstad was never talked about as a player whose value has diminished. He's a top prospect, and his stock will likely rise over the coming months.
