Peterson atop the fantasy trade value chart
The 2015 NFL season is finally here, which means it’s time to start wheelin’ and dealin’ in fantasy leagues.
Trading is one of the best parts of fantasy football. It’s typically one of only two ways — the other being the waiver wire — that you can improve your fantasy team throughout the season.
But judging the value of your players can be a difficult task, especially when trying to strike a trade between positions. That’s where this chart comes in handy.
The 2015 fantasy football trade value chart will be updated on a weekly basis. New this year, we will include charts for both standard leagues and points-per-reception (PPR) leagues — no more trying to guess how PPR trade values translate to standard leagues, and vice versa.
Every fantasy player has value. The trick is to find players that are either overvalued or undervalued and win a trade based on that knowledge.
Each week I’ll go over some “buy low” and “sell high” options. However, we’ll keep it simple at the beginning and let the Week 1 values do the talking. By this time next week, there’s no doubt some hidden gems will begin to show.
A familiar name — Adrian Peterson — sits atop the list. Check out everyone else’s value below, and remember these charts are meant to serve as guidelines. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to trading in fantasy football.
