This is a list of guys who you should definitely check in on this offseason in your dynasty leagues. As an owner you should have a list of players/positions you want to target during every NFL offseason. All of these players could possibly have low price tags, and could be great buy lows. Depending on how your league values rookie picks, this should be right around the value for these players.
Denarius Moore– some people might have not noticed how good of a season Moore was having before his week 11 injury. He was in the top 20 in scoring for WRs, and was putting up consistent numbers. Now don’t assume he will automatically be a top 20 WR again next year, but Moore definitely has WR2 upside. Possible trade value: just right, rookie mid to early 2nd round pick; too high, 1st and a 3rd rookie picks.
Roddy White– most people are going to remember the awful first half of the 2013 season. Roddy wasn’t just the same. Most thought it was age catching up to him. However, Roddy played the majority of the season with an injury, until he decided to sit out until he was healthy. He was a top 10 WR the last 5 weeks of the season. He posted a total of 582 receiving yards, 49 catches, and 3 TDs in the last 8 games. Possible trade value: just right- mid to late 2nd round rookie pick; too high- 1st round rookie pick.

Terrence Williams– there are a handful of rookies who are great buy low’s this offseason. I believe Terrence has the opportunity to be one of the best one. Miles Austin is likely to leave in free agency, giving Williams the chance to step up. Williams showed what he can do in the #2 role, putting up 438 yards and 5 TDs in the 5 weeks Austin was out. He is a good combination of size and speed. With Dez Bryant on the other side, Williams will see a lot of single coverage and not many CBs can match his speed. Possible trade value: just right- mid 2nd round and a 3rd round rookie pick; too high- early to mid 1st and 2nd round rookie pick.
Jermey Maclin– was out the entire season with an injury. Keep an eye on his recovery and how it is going. Maclin is a free agent this offseason as well. If he returns to the Eagles he would be a part of an already explosive offense. He was already a top 20 WR in PPR formats when healthy, and in the Eagles’ offense he has a chance to be even better. Even if Maclin does not re-sign with the Eagles, he will be one of the main targets on any team. Not only is the fact that Maclin was out all last year a good reason to buy low, but Maclin has a tendency to get hurt often so that may have the owner wanting to get rid of him. Possible trade value: just right- a late 2nd round rookie pick; too high- a early to mid 1st round rookie pick.
Doug Martin– dominated his rookie season, and most people were expecting the samein 2013, but Martin did not get off to the start he was hoping for. The main reasons for this were not necissarily Martins play, but a lack of a passing game and bad O-line. Some owners may be panicking and thinking that Martin is a one year wonder. Now is the time to pounce on those trigger happy and nervous owners. Possible trade value: just right- early to mid 1st and 2nd round rookie pick; too high- two 1st and a 3rd round rookie pick.
I hope this helps in your quest to be the dynasty team. Good luck and happy trading!
