NFL Fantasy Football Trade Value Chart: Week 3

After an exciting Week 2 of NFL football, we can more clearly assess the performance of the players on our fantasy football teams moving forward. Each week, this column will provide a Trade Value Chart for quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends, assuming a half-point per reception fantasy league.

Each week, the trade value chart will rate 24 quarterbacks, 36 running backs, 36 wide receivers, and 14 tight ends. A number of factors go into these rankings:

  • Performance - how is each player producing and what is their expected performance moving forward
  • Team context - how is the team performing as an offensive unit
  • Injury - is the player injured or is there a team injury that would significantly impact their future performance (i.e. CeeDee Lamb being affected by the Dak Prescott injury)
  • Upcoming opponents

A trade value chart can be used to determine the relative value of a hypothetical fantasy football trade. So, if Cooper Kupp has a value of 36, you would look for a similar return on a trade (such as Rashod Bateman at 20 and James Robinson at 18).

Is it an exact science? Certainly not. It is based on past and future expectations and my own preferences for each player.

Proudest husband and dad you will ever find. When I'm not with my wife and two kids I split my time working in higher ed, grinding DFS and season-long, collecting silver age comics, studying behavioral economics, and drinking coffee. I once played Pat Connaughton in an actual NBA DFS lineup for money. Astros, Rockets, and Texans for life.
