Fantasy Football: Giant Offseason Values

At this point in the offseason the New York Giants offense features some of the best values in fantasy football drafts.

Over and over again in Twitter conversations and on the Fantasy Football podcasts and radio shows I've been doing people have been talking about how they are excited about Rashad Jennings in 2014. Even with all the experts comfortable with having Jennings as their running back two in fantasy leagues he still seems to slip in drafts. Even Toby Gerhart, who is being hyped up on a lot of fantasy football sites, is being drafted ahead of Jennings.

Jennings has now been anointed by Giants' GM Jerry Reese with the coveted "bell cow" title and still he can be had in the sixth round of drafts. This will not be the case come September if things stay the status quo in the Giants backfield. If you want to get Jennings at his current value I suggest signing up for some early offseason leagues on

Victor Cruz has slid behind Cordarrelle Patterson and Percy Harvin in fantasy draft ADP and is regularly overlooked for Larry Fitzgerald and even Michael Floyd and Michael Crabtree in some leagues. When Cruz falls to the middle or end of the fourth round of drafts he becomes a huge value. I even got him in the beginning of the fifth round in one of my MFL 10s on Unlike Jennings, Cruz should hold pretty steady in his current ADP.

Rueben Randle's ADP is holding steady, but the chatter in fantasy circles is starting to heat up. The blurbs about the new offense taking pressure off of him and moving him around the formation have fantasy experts, including me, targeting Randle in drafts. I believe Randle is a good gamble in drafts and will try to grab him as much as I can at his current value.

While Randle's ADP has held steady Odell Beckham Jr.'s has slid.  He is now going in the late 120s to early 130s in drafts and could be a nice value if he continues to slip. Rookies are never a great investment at the wide receiver position, but Beckham could be a nice pick late in drafts. He could slip even further with Brandin Cooks and Jordan Matthews rising up draft boards with all the hype they are getting from their team pages.

Adrien Robinson's stock has taken a tumble with the news coming out of OTAs that he failed to separate himself from the rest of the tight ends. I am hoping that when the pads go on Robinson will make a push and become at least fantasy relevant. Tight ends in west coast offenses can have a lot of value because they are used on short routes that can turn into big gains as well as being used as one of the primary outlets when teams blitz.
