NFL Fantasy Football Trade Value Chart: Week 5

After an exciting Week 4 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, 40 wide receivers, and 18 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. Tom Brady being affected by the Chris Godwin or Julio Jones injury)
  • Upcoming opponents

A trade value chart can be used to determine the relative value of a hypothetical fantasy football trade. So, if Saquon Barkley has a value of 35.5, you would look for a similar return on a trade (Leonard Fournette at 25 and Jerry Jeudy at 11.5).

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.
