2014 Free Agents To Target (End of Regular Season Update)

Alex Mack - David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

So once again, with the help if Rotoworld.com, Profootballfocus.com, and advanced stats from Footballoutsidesr.com and wp.advancednflstats.com im compiling a list of the Best Value Free Agent Targets for the Giants. Now that the Regular Season is over, all the stats for every player are final, so we have a better idea of who was consistently good throughout the season. Obviously we need help in a lot of areas, OL, CB, DE, RB, WR, and TE. And obviously we will not be able to address all these needs through Free Agency, we will also use the draft.

We're not only looking for players who performed well this season, but players who can be consistent producers for the Giants in the future. So we're trying to find player's who are under 30, have not only played well this season, but have played well in seasons past and are trending upward, and will be affordable to us. Clearly we're not targeting LT's like Brandon Albert or Jared Veldheer, or CB's like Vontae Davis and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who are all but guaranteed big pay days in Free Agency.

I did not include Safeties and Cornerbacks in this post considering those are our 2 strongest positions and not subject to change as of now (unless Will Hill gets arrested again or Antrelle Rolle finds himself a cap casualty). I didn't include Linebackers either because the MIKE is all but settled as long as Jon Beason is resigned and there aren't many quality/inexpensive OLB's on the market this offseason. Enjoy.
