Week 4 Fantasy Football Trade Value Chart

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

Our Trade Value Chart is designed to assist you in making fair trades in your standard-scoring league. The values assigned to the players below are strictly a measurement of their Fantasy value heading into the current week. By adding two players' values you could determine what one player you might be able to get in return. This list should also provide a glimpse into how we feel about a player for the remainder of the season.

The Chris Johnson we drafted with good intentions is still missing. A combination of his offense's play calling, poor run blocking and some deficiencies in his own game have made him the most disappointing first-round pick through three weeks.

To put it in perspective, Johnson has 33 carries for 45 yards through three games, good for a ripe 1.4 rushing average. Jamaal Charles had 233 yards on 33 carries in Week 3. And Johnson has as many touchdowns as you do.

Because he's not getting the reps most people came into the season expecting him to get, and because he's doing very little with the few reps he's been getting, plenty of Fantasy owners are ready to let him go for whatever they can get. Here are some actual trades from owners in CBSSports.com leagues.

Chris Johnson for the Bears DST: Talk about punting on a guy! Johnson moved for a good, not great, DST certainly is an indication that some owners are so fed up with Johnson they'll literally take anything from the first fellow owner who makes an offer.

Chris Johnson for DeAngelo Williams: This also seems like an owner jumping ship on Johnson, but at least he's getting a serviceable starter at a key position. And if you don't think Williams is a serviceable starter by comparison to Johnson, check to see how he's done compared to him.

Chris Johnson for Dez Bryant: Now we're talking. Perhaps in this trade the owner for Johnson was rich at running back and weak at receiver and simply wanted a receiver with upside to replace Johnson. And maybe the owner who dealt Bryant was needy for a running back with upside. This trade is fair and works on many levels for the owner who not only wants to dump Johnson but also needs a wideout and can move on without him because of good running back depth.

Chris Johnson for Cedric Benson and Jeremy Maclin: Back in August you would have never taken Benson and Maclin for Johnson, but in the world we live in now this is a pretty awesome swap. Sure, Maclin's injury prone and on a team with all sorts of offensive issues and Benson isn't promised a ton of Fantasy points per week, but so long as one of them can pop for some numbers from week to week, this is a bargain.

Of all the deals listed here, the one I would do as a Johnson owner would be the two-for-one. I'd also consider the Dez-for-Johnson move if I needed receiver help. Otherwise, I'd sit on Johnson in hopes of a turnaround.

There is some hope for a turnaround, after all. Don't look past the fact that in Week 3 he had three runs of 10-plus yards, showing some good explosion and the ability to not get stuck behind his O-line by hitting the outside edges on all three. He can also make an impact as a receiver if given the targets, last year was proof of that. The Titans' offense just needs to get going and Johnson's number needs to get called more. If both happen by, say, Week 7 when he plays at Buffalo, then he could be in a position to do well in the second half of the year when he'll have some very favorable matchups down the stretch, including two games each against the Colts and Jaguars.

Shoot, it might be a good idea to try and buy low on Johnson if you have the ammo to get him (you probably do) and if you have an owner annoyed with him (you probably do).

Speculation: Contract issue keeping Vontaze Burfict out
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:51 am ET) Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict remains sidelined from practice Friday. The team has also not confirmed a multi-year contract extension with the second-year player.

It is unknown if there is a connection to the two facts. Speculation is that the deal has been held up by one side or the other.

The team listed a stomach ailment as the reason for his absence from practice Thursday.


Jets not ready to give up on unproductive Stephen Hill
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:33 am ET) Despite the fact that Stephen Hill has just one reception in the first two preseason games, Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg has not given up on the 2012 second-round pick.

"I was pleased with his progress [last year] up until he got nicked and that he got nicked again," Mornhinweg told the New York Post. "This year he was even more impressive in the offseason and through training camp, with a few exceptions. There were a couple days there. So he's coming along. And in many cases, this is what happens, at all positions, but especially at the receiver position, that third year they make a pretty good jump. That's what we're looking for there."

The Jets are seeking a receiver to start opposite Eric Decker. David Nelson is another possibility, but his potential is not considered as strong as that of Hill, whose production fell off the table after a strong start in 2013.


Jamaal Charles all but ruled out for Saturday game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:20 am ET) What was anticipated now appears official - Chiefs superback Jamaal Charles will not play Saturday against Minnesota.

Charles returned to practice Thursday after missing time with a bruised foot. But Andy Reid is taking the cautious approach with him.


Coach: Two-QB system on table for Browns down the road
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:16 am ET) Mike Pettine has confirmed that he and Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan have considered a two-quarterback system down the road with a package featuring rookie Johnny Manziel "on the table."

Pettine announced this week that Brian Hoyer will start the season opener in Pittsburgh. He has indicated that any package involving Manziel will not yet be incorporated for that game.

"No, this is Brian's job," Pettine said. "I don't foresee us now, especially early, being in a two-quarterback system. This is Brian's job and I never think of it as a leash or we want a guy to be a game manager. ... I don't want our guys on offense to feel like there's any type of governor there and they can't just cut it loose and be aggressive."


James Laurinaitis questionable for Saturday game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:07 am ET) Rams linebacker James Laurinaitis is only a maybe for the Saturday night game in Cleveland. An ankle injury could keep him sidelined for the third straight game.

Laurinaitis practiced this week and ramped up his activity every day. He did some full-team work Thursday, the last full-scale workout before the clash against the Browns in which the starters will receive the longest look of the preseason. Jeff Fisher sounded as if he could flip a coin to predict whether Laurinaitis will play.

"Don't know whether he's going to go; it will be very close," he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Laurinaitis has racked up at least 114 tackles in each of his first five years in the NFL. He recorded a career-high 3 1/2 sacks in 2013.


Marshawn Lynch set to rack up carries in preseason clash
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:55 am ET) Pete Carroll said that "it's time" for featured back Marshawn Lynch to ramp up the reps. The result will be far more playing time Friday night against Chicago.

Carroll did not announce Thursday how long the starters would play, but did acknowledge that the third preseason game would be the one in which they play the most. They are likely to remain on the field into the third quarter, per the Everett Herald.

Lynch was in on just two plays in the last game without a carry. That is destined to change against the Bears.

"It's time for him to get some carries and get involved a little bit," Carroll said. "I could not be more pleased with the conditioning level that he's had, the consistency of practice and his preparation has been great. He'll be ready to go."


Brandon Bostick almost surely a no-go for season opener
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:40 am ET) The Packers have all but ruled out tight end Brandon Bostick for the Sept. 4 regular season opener in Seattle.

Bostick sustained a slight fracture of the fibula in his right leg while catching a pass Saturday in St. Louis. Sources have told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that the best-case scenario would be to have Bostick back on the field for the second or third game, though he could remain out into October.

He caught seven passes for 120 yards in 2013.


Anthony Hitchens works with first-team at middle linebacker
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9:32 am ET) Redskins fourth-round pick Anthony Hitchens took all the first-team reps at middle linebacker in Thursday practice, per the Dallas News. He worked ahead of veteran Rolando McClain, who had missed the Wednesday session with cramps.

The development was necessitated by the loss for the season of linebacker DeVonte Holloman, who has sustained what could be a career-ending neck spinal injury. Hitchens was drafted to play on the outside, but has spent significant time in the middle.

"I'm just moving back and forth," Hitchens said. "I wouldn't be surprised if they moved me again. I'm just trying to learn as much as I can right now."


49ers not ready to award Steve Johnson No. 3 receiver role
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:31 am ET) The 49ers aren't ready to declare Steve Johnson as the team's No. 3 receiver. In fact, according to Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, the team won't "put numbers" on their receivers. Johnson is fight Brandon Lloyd, Quinton Patton, and rookie Bruce Ellington for snaps this preseason.

When asked if Johnson is the third wideout, offensive coordinator Greg Roman said: "It depends. It depends. I think we'll have some flexibility there."

Brent Celek compiles 41 receiving yards vs. Eagles
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:15 am ET) Eagles tight end Brent Celek made his presence felt with only two catches Thursday night against the Steelers in exhibition play.

Celek came down with a 23-yard grab during the second series of the night. On the ensuing drive late in the first quarter, he caught an 18-yard pass from Nick Foles. He played the entire first half with the starters and finished the game with two receptions for 41 yards.
