Fantasy Football Trade Value Chart

Fantasy Football Trade Value Chart

DK Metcalf headlines the wide receiver section of our Fantasy Football Trade Value Chart.

You spent the weekend watching your fantasy team fail to deliver a win yet again. This is the final straw. Sitting on your couch, staring into the oblivion that was once such a promising season, you vow to trade each and every one of these lollygaggers. Before you make a move that seems good in your chicken wing and light beer-addled state, you consult a trade value chart. Let the experts confirm that your team is a bunch of bums, but also how can you dupe your idiot friends into making a good deal for you.

The SGPN Trade Value Chart utilizes a proprietary blend of herbs and spices, no wait, that’s my famed fried chicken recipe. The Talentless Mr. Roto considered a wide variety of factors while building the trade value chart. Considering FantasyPros Rest of Season Rankings, Performance to date, points above replacement level player, and average draft position. Taking these public ingredients, he weighed the values, made adjustments, and came up with a trade value chart. It remains to be seen if it is valuable, but here it is for your fantasy improvements.

Quarterbacks

Russell Wilson SEA QB 296 Ryan Fitzpatrick MIA QB 147
Patrick Mahomes II KC QB 283 Teddy Bridgewater CAR QB 139
Josh Allen BUF QB 276 Drew Brees NO QB 128

Matt Ryan ATL QB 193 Mitchell Trubisky CHI QB 56
Gardner Minshew II JAC QB 192 Jimmy Garoppolo SF QB 55
Matthew Stafford DET QB 164 Sam Darnold NYJ QB 50
Jared Goff LAR QB 161 Dwayne Haskins WAS QB 34
Nick Foles CHI QB 154 Alex Smith WAS QB 17
Tom Brady TB QB 153 Philip Rivers IND QB 16

The big takeaway from quarterback was that only six quarterbacks were performing significantly better, 2+ points per game, than replacement level. Josh Allen, Russell Wilson, Patrick Mahomes, Kyler Murray, Aaron Rodgers, and Ryan Fitzpatrick are proving to be above average starters so far this season. The remarkable thing to consider is that Fitzpatrick had a 5 point week in Week One against the Patriots. Without that game, he has been producing on a Rodgers-like level. Sure he may come back down to Earth, but ride the Fitzmagic roller coaster as long as possible.

Our trade value chart might not appropriately value Alvin Kamara and Aaron Jones enough. Jones is scoring 12.1 points per week above replacement, while Kamara is 14.8 points above replacement. Both of these backs are producing at an absolutely torrid pace and are valued well above their counterparts. Chris Carson has sneakily entered himself into the elite running back conversation. There were initial concerns about him being in a committee to start the year, but he has asserted his role as the lead back for Seattle.

The hate tweets, comments, emails, and more are on their way with Michael Thomas being ranked so low and being valued on level with Chris Godwin and Keenan Allen. However, the facts are the facts. Thomas has only played one game this season and did not look particularly productive. Moving forward, it is unclear what the New Orleans offense will look like or how Thomas will factor in. Additionally, it appears Thomas may be starting to move towards “Diva Land” with the news of his suspension for Monday night’s matchup. All those things combined have to have you wondering if Thomas is the same elite-level value he has been. He is certainly still talented, but he may not be a top-tier value anymore.

Tight Ends

Travis Kelce KC TE 292 Logan Thomas WAS TE 124
Darren Waller LV TE 267 Cameron Brate TB TE 103
Hunter Henry LAC TE 265 Eric Ebron PIT TE 101
Mark Andrews BAL TE 264 Evan Engram NYG TE 99
George Kittle SF TE 247 Dawson Knox BUF TE 94
Jonnu Smith TEN TE 246 Mo Alie-Cox IND TE 91
T.J. Hockenson DET TE 203 Rob Gronkowski TB TE 80
Noah Fant DEN TE 187 Austin Hooper CLE TE 77
Mike Gesicki MIA TE 180 Jared Cook NO TE 75
Hayden Hurst ATL TE 172 Greg Olsen SEA TE 60
Jimmy Graham CHI TE 165 Drew Sample CIN TE 44
Dalton Schultz DAL TE 163 Chris Herndon IV NYJ TE 27
Tyler Higbee LAR TE 150 Gerald Everett LAR TE 25
Zach Ertz PHI TE 146 Tyler Eifert JAC TE 22
Trey Burton IND TE 136 Jordan Akins HOU TE 21
Robert Tonyan GB TE 131

As with every year, there are six elite-tier tight ends and then a whole mess of next-level guys on the trade value chart. Although some players like Gesicki, Fant, and Hockenson may crack elite-tier status as the season goes on, they are not quite there yet. There have been too many ups and downs so far each of these guys to reliably count them among the elite. If you have one of the elite-level guys then you are in great shape and can count on their strong value above replacement level down the stretch.
