Fantasy Trade Value Chart — Week 9


Larry-FitzgeraldWelcome to the Week 9 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 dipped for the second week in a row, dropping over five points, or 0.54 percent. The Index opens Week 9 at 938.78, its second lowest point of the season.

Quarterbacks (down 7.52 percent) and wide receivers (down 6.10 percent) brought the overall Fantasy 124 index down this week, as running backs (up 2.51 percent) and tight ends (up 22.42 percent) both rose. Week 9’s Fantasy 124 marks the first time that all four positions — QB, RB, WR, and TE — are less valuable than when the “market” opened in the preseason.

    I think I might not understand how to read this chart… How can Darren McFadden possibly be as valuable as Eddie Lacy? And Kaep more valuable than Aaron Rodgers?

      What this guy said.

      Hey Patrick, thanks for the comment. It does seem surprising, I agree, but our projections love Kaepernick over the second half of the season. I highly suggest using our custom ranking toolkit (http://www.profootballfocus.com/toolkit/) to input your own league settings.

      We do project lacy to do more than McFadden, and the projections have been updated since yesterday to reflect this.
