Jernigan's 2014 fantasy value?

Hakeem Nicks is obviously gone and won't return for the Giants. Rueben Randle is better suited to move outside and take his place. Cruz is Cruz, but Jerrel Jernigan could be a great slot option for the GMen in 2014. And, if you look back over the last decade or so, the Giants third receiver always seems to take a big step the season after showing up a few times. In this instance, when it was thought to be Randle in 2014, it could now be both Randle and Jernigan. With how Eli Manning loves his slot receivers and check-downs, don't be surprised to see Jernigan (assuming they don't bring in any other options) show up as a WR4 value option next year and even have WR3 potential in PPR leagues.
