Time to trade for Arian Foster and DeMarco Murray

Welcome to the Week 6 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, wide receivers and tight ends all rose in value, but running backs dropped sharply. Given that running backs are the most valuable group from a fantasy perspective, their big drop cause the entire market to dip despite the fact the other three positions saw gains.

    Would anyone trade away CWest and Russell Wilson for Dez? 12 tm .5 PPR, and I own Brady.

    • Mike Jones

      I’d make that deal without thinking about.

  • Ryan Ertz

    Trade: I have DeMarco Murray and Doug Martin, offer is for Amari Cooper, AJ Green, and Alfred Morris. My other RBs are Jeremy Hill, Chris Ivory, Justin Forsett, Ronnie Hillman, Christine Michael; WRs are Antonio Brown, Keenan Allen Leonard Hankerson, John Brown, and Marvin Jones. Any thoughts??
