Fantasy football trade value chart: Week 4

With three weeks of the season in the rearview mirror, we have a new name atop the trade value chart. Hint: He was suspended for the first three games.

Pittsburgh’s Le’Veon Bell has seen his value rise week-over-week, and he’s now the most valuable player in fantasy — at least in standard leagues. The PPR crown is still worn by his teammate, Antonio Brown.

Whether you’re aiming for one of Pittsburgh’s top prizes or just looking to build some bench depth, you might be trying to made a fantasy football trade. That’s where this chart comes in handy.

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.

Demaryius Thomas and Mark Ingram for DeAndre Hopkins? — @tntkids

The Thomas/Ingram side of this deal wins in a landslide. In fact, in a standard league, the trade value chart has Ingram ($34.9) ahead of Hopkins ($31.6). And Demaryius Thomas ($26.1) isn’t too far behind.

Ingram has had a slow start to the season and has yet to record a rushing touchdown. And yet he’s still putting up tail-end RB2 numbers in standard leagues. Once he starts scoring on the ground (and he will), he’ll be an RB1. Thomas is also putting up tail-end WR2 numbers after a slow start to the season, but he’ll rise to the upper echelons of the WR2s as the season progresses. Week 3 was a nice teaser.

    Receive Matt Jones
    Receive Jamaal Charles,
    Receive Tajae Sharpe,

    Give, LaGarrette Blount
    Give, Cameron Artis-Payne

    Wondering if Charles value is high enough once he is back? Blount should see a decrease when Brady is back but is that enough of a reason?

    Hi Tyler, thanks for your help last week explaining the trade chart to me. I find this to be one of the most valuable tools PFF offers.

    I have Crowell as my RB2 as Foster nurses his injuries. Someone just offered me Duke Johnson, Brandin Cooks and Kyle Rudolph for Greg Olsen and Tyrell Williams. overall value wise I seem win, but week to week Cooks’ potential production coupled with the Saints schedule worries me. Am I giving up too much by selling Olsen with this trade?
