2014 Dynasty Rookie Rankings For Fantasy Football

The 2014 draft is finished and we now know the destination of nearly all of the drafted players and undrafted free agents.  2014 is a very deep class at the WR position so there will be values to be had later on in drafts, especially in PPR leagues.  In Dynasty leagues, we are looking for players who are going to make a large impact for several years which means we want to draft top talent players and hope that circumstances allow them to live up to their talent.  You don't want to waste a rookie draft pick on a player you don't think has a high enough ceiling to eventually be a fantasy stud.  Trading rookie picks during the draft season and especially during the draft is the time to get the most value for them, so don't hesitate to trade a rookie pick if you think the player you are getting back in the deal has the most upside.  All rankings are PPR.

Eagles Release DeSean Jackson

The Philedelphia Eagles have released 3 time pro bowl wide receiver Desean Jackson.  The move comes as no surprise as the Eagles were rumored to be shopping Jackson around the league at his 10.5 million per year salary.  Interest in a trade for Jackson from other NFL teams was most likely extremely limited given the cap number, especially since those teams would assume that Jackson would be cut if a trade partner was not found.  Interest from other NFL franchises in terms of signing Jackson to a new contract is undoubtedly much higher than interest in a trade.

Report: DeSean Jackson's Return To Eagles Uncertain

The Eagles have signed Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper to contract extensions and have cast doubt on whether or not Wide Receiver DeSean Jackson will remain with the team long term.  It has been widely reported that Jackson had asked for a new contract, and with Philadelphia already having an extremely high cap number dedicated to the WR position it seems doubtful that they would agree to such requests.

2014 NFL Free Agent Signings Fantasy Football Review

The NFL Free Agent Signing period is currently underway and many of the chips have already fallen.  The biggest signings in terms of fantasy football are Eric Decker taking a huge hit in value to go to the Jets and Ben Tate going to Cleveland who sorely needing help at the RB position.  Hakeem Nicks could see a resurgence playing with QB Andrew Luck, and Emmanuel Sanders could have a huge year playing with Peyton Manning and possibly fill Eric Decker's role.  Golden Tate will be lining up across from Calvin Johnson and Jeremy Maclin will get his chance to shine in Chip Kelly's offense.  Toby Gerhart will get a chance to take over primary back duties in Jacksonville and will finally get the opportunity to emerge from Adrian Peterson's shadow.
