Time to trade for Jimmy Graham and Michael Crabtree
Welcome to the Week 5 edition of the 2015 fantasy football 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 charts — 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. There are two charts — one for standard leagues and one for points-per-reception (PPR) leagues.
The purpose of the Fantasy 124 is to show risers and fallers at a macro-level. As you can see below, quarterbacks and wide receivers rose in value while running backs and tight ends fell.
We have another new change this week — again at your request. In addition to the week-over-week changes in player value (which was introduced last week), we’ve also scaled up the numbers on the trade value charts to show more of a difference between the players.
