Sam Wallace highlights three players fantasy managers should target before their values dramatically increase once training camp begins in earnest.
Player values fluctuate throughout the year even when no football is being played. The offseason is a prime example of this phenomenon. Rookie picks increase in value as the NFL Draft approaches, and veterans who are in danger of losing their roster spot or seeing added competition see their values dip.
Training camp provides another tangible period for value fluctuations. The regular season inches ever closer, and full-blown practices are being held with added media attention. Beat reporters keep us up-to-date with highlight-reel catches and optimistic coachspeak. It’s only natural for some players to experience an ADP bump.
If you are in a season-long league or a dynasty league, these three players are in a prime position to see their values continue to increase. I believe the additional hype will be warranted, and these players are currently priced at a discount. Make your moves before the price to acquire these talented players goes up.
