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.
