Fantasy football trade value chart: Week 1
The 2016 NFL season hasn’t even started yet — although it’s nearly here! — but us fantasy footballers are already making trades to better our teams. So it’s time to update the fantasy football trade value chart to help you strike a deal.
Granted, since no games have been played yet, player values haven’t changed much in the past week. There has been some activity, however, so we’ll run through the most notable changes.
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.
No player saw his value rise week-over-week more than Seattle running back Christine Michael. Not only did he look great in the preseason, but he appears to be in line for a healthy amount of touches to start the season, as Thomas Rawls works back to full health.
The best part is that you might not even have to try to trade for Michael, since there’s a 50-50 chance he’s just sitting on your waiver wire. Alternatively, now might be the time to sell high on Thomas Rawls — if you still can. His value dropped (by far) the most week-over-week.
