Fantasy football trade value chart: Week 9


For many leagues, trade deadlines are just weeks away. That means you might only have a few more weeks left to make some last-minute adjustments for a final playoff push or run through the championship.

You can use the 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 Christine Michael or Thomas Rawls and Allen Robinson for Mike Evans? Standard league. — @Scott2345

Let’s assume you trade Michael and Robinson for Evans. According to the chart, the Evans side wins this deal, as Michael and Robinson are worth a combined $41.8, compared to Evans’ $50.4 price tag. It is, however, a close enough deal that neither side will be fleeced.

  • spmaloney

    Tim Hightower is on here twice at 2 different prices

    • Tyler Loechner

      Ah, shoot, good catch. The higher value one is correct. Will remove the dupes soon.

  • Keith

    I like these charts, not sure I agree with Michael Thomas on here – performs better than Snead against a top defense, but his value is cut in half?

    • matt

      They both had the same amount of receptions but Thomas had 7 more yards so I suppose thats performing better than Snead but hardly. Snead was targeted once more than Thomas and the most on the team this week. Snead also only plays the majority of his snaps in the slot while Thomas has to share snaps on the outside with Coleman which doesn’t help his value.

  • Joe

    Why is DeVante Parker so high on this list? Is he going to be a big part of their offense moving forward?

    • Phil

      Parker is second on the team in both targets and receptions for the season and no reason to think that will change the second half. Last 3 games hes also been second for targets, receptions & yardage which should count for something.

      • Joe

        Yeah But his snaps drastically decreased from week 6( 86%) to week 7 (67%). How does his value go up drastically if his snaps go down drastically?

        • Matt

          One week? Not enough info. Could have needed a few more breathers or maybe he got hurt a few times and needed a few more plays off to recover quick. I take data from the past 3 weeks to make a decision. One week is too small a sample size to base your moves on, your gonna be tinkering every week with that process.

  • Alan

    How does the chart work exactly? I understand the different values for PPR and Standard…. I don’t understand the triangles…i’m assuming that’s the change in value from last weeks chart? let me know if that’s correct. Thanks!

    • Tyler Loechner

      That is correct!

  • Ryan

    Any trade chart that values Tavon Austin ($25.9) over Jordy Nelson ($24.6) in a standard league, or any league for that matter, is worthless.

    • Matt

      Idk why this chart differs from their other chart. I have the PFF Gold and they have a projections chart that shows most of this info but formatted much different and has totally different values. (Below is the info that I just grabbed off the page I’m referring to.)
      Austin = 12$
      Nelson = 18$

    • Tyler Loechner

      Tavon should definitely be lower – a mistake. The chart will be updated shortly! Thanks!

      • Trey Kimbell

        Tyler, I hate to be critical, but these types of mistakes are hard to swallow from a paying customer IMO. And Tim Hightower was listed twice initially as well. Terrance West seems drastically way overvalued as well.

  • Matt

    Hey Tyler – I have Christine Michael, Todd Gurley, Doug Martin, Dion Lewis, and Derrick as my RBs. I was wondering who I should trade Christine Michael for? I am trying to get a more stable RB. Thanks.

  • Matt

    Hey Tyler, one more question for you. I have Marvin Jones and was wondering if I am only going to be able to get Peanuts for him now? I was going to try and get some depth at RB (I have David Johnson, Miller, and Booker) and my WRs (Antonio Brown, Jarvin Landry, Jeffrey, Edelman, Moncrief, and Michael Thomas with Eifert as my TE). Any good targets. Thanks.

  • Todd

    Trade McKinnon for Dion Lewis?

  • geo2209

    Might be a stupid question, but is the chart taking into account PFF grading for each player?

  • Ryan

    How the hell is Terrance West valued so high?

  • Quincy

    No love for Blount? Such a low value.

  • Jack

    Why is Devante Adams not on this chart?
