Fantasy Trade Value Chart — Week 6

olsen-gregWelcome to the Week 6 edition of the fantasy trade value chart, which can help you strike a trade if you’re looking to improve your team and maximize value. Skip to the bottom if you just want to browse the chart, but keep reading if you want help making sense of it all.

We also have an updated Fantasy 124, the fantasy football stock market index showing the value of the (roughly) 124 most valuable fantasy football players on a weekly basis. The index — and the trade value chart — rely on PFF Fantasy’s Rest of Season projections from Mike Clay. The dollar amounts assume a 12-team league with a $200 cap and a starting lineup of 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, and 1 Flex, with points-per-reception (PPR) scoring.

The Fantasy 124 dropped yet again, this time 20.06 points, or 2.10 percent. The Index opens Week 6 at 933.61, its lowest point of the season.

The fact that quarterbacks (down 2.32 percent), running backs (down 0.95 percent) and tight ends (down a whopping 55.67 percent) is what drove the overall value of the chart down. The jump wide receivers had (up 12.97 percent) was the only thing that saved the overall Fantasy 124 from dropping even further.

    Nice chart. I have Brees, am in first place, and have a solid receiving corps. Should I consider trading him for a low-end WR1 (Cobb/Jeffery)? I’m just afraid that Brees and the Saints will address their problems during the bye and return stronger than ever.

    • Tyler Loechner

      Brees and the Saints O will probably address their problems, though it may not be to the extent you imagine. Depending on your backup QB situation, I’d pull the trigger. If your “next man up” is Geno Smith, then perhaps not.

    You said: “As with previous entires in this series, it needs to be noted that if I mark a player as a “sell high” or “buy low” candidate…”

    I am not seeing any buy or sell ratings on this chart. Are you referring to something else?

    • Tyler Loechner

      I’m referencing the text of the article. I call out Greg Olsen as a buy low candidate, despite his recent string of success. I still think he’s undervalued.

    Are these values based on the perceived values (i.e. “fair market value)? I.e., you don’t really think Rueben Randle is better than Frank Gore, right? Frank Gore may be old but he’s been pretty solid.
