Succeeding in dynasty fantasy football is all about knowing your assets and selling high at the right time. And of course, buying low. The stock value of players and draft picks can change dramatically and it isn't uncommon for an asset to fall out of favor despite still carrying significant long-term value.

Below are some names that I am buying right now -- at the right price of course. By that, I mean I am offering something in the range of a third-round rookie pick, or more likely, I am getting another owner to "throw in" one of these players to complete a bigger deal we have in the works. These players are somewhat cold properties right now, but have more upside than many might realize. It is time to buy low on the following:

Jake Locker | QB | Tennessee Titans
