Fantasy football is an ever-evolving landscape. And the start of free agency is where a lot changes very quickly. This year was just the same. From unretirements, franchise quarterback trades, and big-spending sprees, a lot has changed from the 2021 season. Today, I will be talking about players who have gained value from the start of the free agency cycle. Whether you’re in a dynasty league or just looking for players that could be sleepers for this next season, this list could help you!
The Broncos Offense

Javonte Williams, Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick, KJ Hamler, Albert Okwuegbunam, and now… Russell Wilson. This is a major upgrade for the Broncos offense from the duo of Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater. Jerry Jeudy went from a disappointment to a high-potential receiver. I don’t think Sutton should be rated as high as Jeudy, but his outlook is better now. Javonte has Melvin Gordon leaving the backfield, so he will get a full workload(which he excelled in the few games that Gordon was out last year). Finally, Albert Okwuegbynam is a low-key tight end that now has some upside with Noah Fant being sent to Seattle in the trade.

Honorable Mentions: Zach Ertz, James Connor, Mitch Trubisky, Michael Carter
As I have said, the fantasy landscape is constantly changing. By the time the season starts, there will be other winners, but some of the current winners won’t be as high of winners. Guys like Vaughn are big winners now, but I could see their value dropping when the season starts due to the Buccaneers drafting another running back or re-signing Fournette.
