Fantasy Trade Value Chart — Week 3
While it’s still too early to draw any sweeping conclusions, with two weeks in the books things are starting to take form in both the NFL and in fantasy leagues. Some players are living up to their own lofty standards (Jordy Nelson, Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, Julio Jones, and Antonio Brown are the top five fantasy wideouts) while others are failing to deliver (Toby Gerhart has fewer fantasy points than Roy Helu.)
Hopefully your fantasy team survived the onslaught of injuries Week 2 brought with it. Or, at the very least, hopefully your fantasy team fared better than this leaguemate of mine (and the typo in my tweet):

Whether it be because of injuries, underperformers, or a simple desire to “complete” your team, trade talks get more serious after Week 2. That’s where the chart below comes in. Skip to the bottom if you just want to browse the chart, but keep reading if you want help making sense of it all.
A new week also means 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 below — 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.
