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).

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:04 pm ET) The Broncos promoted tight end Dominique Jones to the active roster. He's played in 13 career games, catching three passes for 42 yards.

Giants RB Rashad Jennings sitting out as expected
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:54 pm ET) Giants running back Rashad Jennings (ankle) missed another practice Thursday as the team prepared for Sunday's game against the Rams. It's unclear if Jennings will even travel with the team to St. Louis, reports The Star-Ledger.

Rookie Andre Williams will start if Jennings can't go. Williams has run for 568 yards and six touchdowns, but averages 3.2 yards per carry.


Texans WR Johnson appears ready to roll for Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:40 pm ET) Texans standout wideout Andre Johnson has passed concussion protocol and seems set to return to game action against visiting Baltimore on Sunday.

Johnson, who missed the Week 15 loss to Indianapolis, needs 267 yards receiving in the last two games to reach 1,000 for the third consecutive season.


Wright out, McDougald in for Buccaneers in Week 16
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:29 pm ET) Buccaneers strong safety Major Wright is set to sit again Sunday against Green Bay with a rib injury. It will be his second straight absence from game action.

Bradley McDougald will start in his place.


Colts WR Hilton still red-lighted Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:26 pm ET) A hamstring problem has Colts star wide receiver T.Y. Hilton out of practice again Thursday. Hilton had been considered likely to return Wednesday or Thursday, but remains out.

There is no indication, however, that he will be sidelined for the Sunday game at Dallas.


Report: QB Cam Newton likely Panthers starter on Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:23 pm ET) Cam Newton is the likely starter at quarterback for the Panthers against visiting Cleveland on Sunday, according to The Associated Press. That prediction is based on his workload Thursday in practice.

Newton is recovering from a back injury sustained in a car accident last week. He returned to the field Wednesday. The team is expected to name a starter Friday between Newton and former Brown Derek Anderson.


Colts CB Davis overcomes groin issue to practice Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:02 pm ET) A groin ailment did not keep Colts cornerback Vontae Davis off the practice field Thursday.

Davis, who has four interceptions on the season, appears set to play in Dallas on Sunday.


Roddy White, Harry Douglas return to practice
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12:02 pm ET) Falcons receivers Roddy White (ankle) and Harry Douglas (foot) returned to practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday, reports ESPN.com. With Julio Jones (hip) in danger of missing his second straight game Sunday at New Orleans, White and Douglas could be heavily targeted again.

White and Douglas combined for 17 catches on 24 targets for 189 yards and a touchdown Week 15 against Pittsburgh.

Sunday's game should be a shootout, as it carries the week's highest Over/Under at 56. The Falcons are 6-point underdogs at every major Vegas sportsbook.


Percy Harvin back in action Thursday for Jets
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:52 am ET) All-purpose Percy Harvin returned to Jets practice Thursday after missing the Wednesday session with an ankle ailment. He was returning kicks during the media availability portion.

He appears likely to play when the Jets host New England on Sunday.


Falcons WR Julio Jones not practicing Thursday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:47 am ET) Falcons receiver Julio Jones (hip) is not practicing Thursday for the second straight day, reports ESPN.com. Jones missed Week 15, and coach Mike Smith has said Jones' playing status won't be decided until Sunday morning.

If Jones sits out again, Harry Douglas would start opposite Roddy White at New Orleans. Douglas set season highs with 10 catches for 131 yards in the loss to the Steelers.
