2014 Fantasy Football Draft Rising Player Values

Kirby Lee - USA Today Sports
As we continue to go through the off-season more players will change teams and the new rookies will find homes.  There have been a ton of free agent transactions this week already and it's been a bit of whirlwind.
There are a couple players to take note of that have seen some rising value:

Toby Gerhart (RB, JAX) - Gerhart will become the starter in Jacksonville when Maurice Jones-Drew moves on.  Gerhart isn't a flashy RB, but his value jumps up with his new home.  Don't get too excited about him, but he is worth keeping an eye on.

Rashad Jennings (RB, NYG) - Jennings is going to carry a solid workload in New York and his value gets a solid jump with his new transition.  He will be a player I strongly recommend targeting in your 2014 drafts due to his new feature role.

Darren McFadden (RB, OAK) - with Jennings finding a new spot this will give McFadden one more chance to get back into the game.  He is going to have to stay healthy and really bring the thunder.  McFadden is not a trustworthy RB, but if he is hanging around late in the draft then he would be worth a bench spot.

Doug Baldwin (WR, SEA) - with Golden Tate out of the picture and Baldwin's rising talent he must be considered for your fantasy team next year.  He is going to go very late in drafts, but his upside is amazing.  I will be targeting Baldwin for 2014.

Terrence Williams (WR, DAL) - Miles Austin's run is over and Williams steps into the #2 role in Dallas.  He showed that he can be a red-zone target and if you are in a TD league then grab Williams later in your 2014 draft.

Mark Ingram (RB, NO) - with Sproles out of New Orleans and his increased workload at the end of 2013, one has to imagine Ingram's value will rise a ton.  He will go late in 2014 drafts, but his upside is solid.  He will be in a RBBC mode with Pierre Thomas, but don't sleep on Ingram if he is there late.
