I’m writing this article to highlight some players whose value is on the rise, and I’ll explain why.
I got tired of reading fantasy articles and thinking afterward, “that didn’t help me at all.”
Start-em and Sit-em columns are silly to me, because explaining that a running back is playing the Steelers doesn’t help me at all with setting my lineup, unless he is ranked with the other options.
Waiver-Wire pickup articles can help, but if you play in a competitive league most of those guys are gone.
Too many fantasy “experts” tell you what has already happened instead of focusing on what should happen in the future. I don’t care what a guy has done, I care what I think he is going to do going forward.
So, I am going to discuss some players here whose futures look bright and I recommend trading for before their values go up further. If you have any of these guys, I’d advise holding on to them unless you get a great offer, because they are likely to improve for the reasons I’ll explain.
Who will be the next Hakeem Nicks?
Almost all of the players I am about to talk about were drafted during your fantasy draft, and all are probably owned by someone right now. But these players are on the rise for various reasons, so trade for them if you can, or hold on to them and enjoy the ride.
