Fantasy football trade value chart: Week 12


Welcome to the Week 12 fantasy football trade value chart, which will also serve as the final trade value chart of the 2016 NFL season. May your final trades be prosperous.

As usual, you can use our fantasy trade value chart to help determine who to buy and sell, and how much they are worth. The trade value chart relies on our rest-of-season projections. The dollar amounts assume a 12-team league and a starting lineup of 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE and 1 flex. The players are displayed in order of their standard league values, but we’ve included the PPR values for those players as well.

Below are a few trade questions received on Twitter and answered with the help of the trade value chart.

Trade away Odell Beckham Jr. in exchange for Lamar Miller? — @zaidq21

You should stick with Beckham. The trade value chart has him valued at $37.9, compared to Miller’s $25.5. Beckham’s early season struggles are long gone. In fact, since Week 5, Beckham has been fantasy’s No. 1 receiver. He has scored six touchdowns in those six games.

For his part, Miller has been a tail-end RB1, and that’s about where we expect him to be for the rest of the season. There’s nothing wrong with Miller; Beckham is simply more valuable.

Would you trade Tyler Eifert and Dion Lewis for Brandin Cooks? PPR league. — @kreschy

The combined value of Eifert and Lewis ($32.9) far outpaces Cooks’ value of $19.7. I would sit tight.

Since returning to (full) health, Eifert has caught 15 passes for 235 yards and a score. And with Giovani Bernard and A.J. Green both sidelined, Eifert’s role in Cincinnati’s offense should grow. He’s a bona fide TE1 and should be a huge threat to score every week from here on out.

Lewis, meanwhile, returned to the field in Week 11 and saw 21 of a possible 77 snaps. He ran 13 pass routes and was targeted on four of them. And for those wondering if Lewis is still shifty — he answered with a resounding “yes.” He forced five missed tackles on just eight touches, giving him one of the highest Elusive Ratings of the week among running backs. He could be a huge boon to fantasy owners down the stretch.

Cooks remains a tail-end WR1, but the combination of Eifert and Lewis provides too much value to pass up.

Theo Riddick and Stefon Diggs for Jeremy Hill and Jimmy Graham? PPR. — @coreyhart33

I would definitely go for the Riddick and Diggs side, and the trade value chart agrees. We actually have Diggs projected to be an elite WR1 in PPR leagues for the rest of the season, and he’s valued accordingly at $33.2 — more than twice the value of Graham.

And straight up, Riddick is also more valuable than Hill. We have him projected as a tail-end RB1 in PPR formats for the rest of the year. Riddick ranks third among running backs with 1.65 yards gained per pass route run. His four receiving touchdowns are tied for first among running backs.

Hill gets a boost with Giovani Bernard now sidelined, but the majority of his value was already derived from goal line work, and that won’t change post-Bernard. Hill won’t see much more work, if any, in the passing game, so he remains significantly less value in PPR formats compared to standard leagues.

Graham has returned to the ranks of elite TE1 status — especially with Seattle’s offense now clicking — but he doesn’t provide enough value to close the gap.

In a vacuum, this is a trade for a strong WR1 (Diggs) and a tail-end RB1 (Riddick) for a middling RB2 (Hill) and a TE1 (Graham). You’d take the elite wideout and running back every time.

Below is the Week 12 fantasy football trade value chart. Remember that the chart is only meant to serve as a guideline to help you strike a deal.

  • Marc

    Why are Rawls (as well as Doug Martin) valued as low-tier RB2s.

    • Tyler Loechner

      That’s just how they project out rest-of-season. Tampa can be very pass-happy, and Martin does almost nothing in the passing game. Rawls has played what amounts to half-a-game this year, and Seattle continues to pass more and more.

  • Jordan

    This is a poor value chart. By your metrics. Dez and jordy as worth less than Rashad jennings…

    • Tyler Loechner

      We have Jennings projected as a tail-end RB1 ROS. About the same for Dez/Jordy (for WRs).

      • Jordan

        Lol these are so silly. Kenneth Dixon >> brady and rodgers. Cmon guys

  • GordonGekko

    FF is for PU$$YS

    Doug Baldwin still seems way too low (#18WR) especially considering he’s produced top 5 numbers two weeks in a row and is top 4 in WR grading on the year. He has played at an elite level all year by getting separation in every game and is a blatant matchup-proof mismatch for teams. Not to mention Prosise done for the year so his only real competition for targets is Jimmy Graham and Kearse (with an awful 48 receiving grade) to a lesser degree. So the ‘Hawks should continue passing more to protect Rawls now that Russ is healthy. I know you mentioned Lockett last week but he didn’t do much and Kearse is a non-factor. Really the only thing I can think of is you are downgrading him because of the ‘Hawks red zone usage with Russ vulturing and Jimmy ahead of him (despite Baldwin getting 4 RZ targets in week 10 and involved in a trick play in week 11). Or that his targets have dropped slightly due to Lockett and Prosise’s emergence. However, talent will eventually rise to the top which is what I think we are seeing now. His remaining schedule is cupcake with only ARZ in week 16 as much of an obstacle since it’s at home and ARZ will focus on shutting down Jimmy.

    Looking at people ranked ahead of Baldwin – Golden Tate being worth 1/3 more (18 vs 12) despite a) not even being the best pass catcher on his team (Ebron, Riddick, and Jones are better) with horrible grading on the year at 67 and even worse last game, b) Riddick and Ebron (who is worth only 13 in the chart) out-targeting him last game d) virtually no red zone usage e) in a worse offense with a worse QB than Seattle not to mention defense, d) MN and NYG secondaries to contend with. Heck, you can also argue that Diggs in standard shouldn’t be worth more than Baldwin either (PPR maybe) now that he’s injured and they have the worst run blocking.

    In summary, I think Baldwin and Tate should be switched in the least.

    • Tyler Loechner

      Your summary definitely makes sense. It think the issue might just be that Tate is #12 projected WR rest of season. That’s probably higher than most have him in the industry, and it’s definitely higher than his perceived value. Baldwin has been great in recent weeks, but we should remember that much of his damage was done in that NE game, when he was expected to feast. I am definitely a huge Baldwin fan — I nearly always have him in DFS — but I think valuing him as a middle-of-the-pack WR2 makes sense. Thanks for reading and the thoughtful comment!

  • Lee 265

    Great work again this week Tyler, this has really helped me this year.

    So I can get Lev Bell but in return he wants Shadie McCoy, Jordan Reed and Jarvis Landry. Worth it?

    • Tyler Loechner

      Thanks, Lee! Could be worth it. Landry has fallen off a cliff since Ajayi’s emergence. McCoy has injury concerns, and Reed hasn’t blown the roof off in any game this season. Bell has been phenomenal.

      However, in a 3-for-1 trade, there are diminishing returns (if you are the one receiving the 3 players) and/or compounding value lost (if you are the one giving the 3 players). McCoy/Reed/Landry are all obvious starters every week. You get the best player in fantasy in Bell in return, but you also have to fill the void with two unknowns. If you have Tyler Eifert as your backup TE, and someone like Michael Thomas at WR to fill in for Landry, then you can make this trade no problem. If you have Kenny Stills and Will Tye, then maybe not. Make sense?

      • Lee 265

        Perfect sense. I’m not too concerned about losing Landry but I have nobody behind Reed and will need to add someone like Gates or Barnidge. He won’t accept just Landry and McCoy though, then again neither would I to be honest.

  • welcometogoodburger90

    Why is Moncrief so ridiculously low? Kirk Cousins too. Trying to build a case for a trade (Send Ajayi/Moncrief/Cam for Melvin Gordon and Kirk) but you ain’t helping!!
