Week 6 Fantasy 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. This list should also provide a glimpse into how we feel about a player for the remainder of the season.

After five weeks and four favorable matchups, the value on Redskins' rookie running back Alfred Morris is sky high. And when it comes to trades in Fantasy, timing is everything.

There's no reason to doubt that Morris could finish the season with over 1,000 rush yards and nine touchdowns, but if that's the case then he's almost halfway there already with 491 yards and four scores through five games. It would be stunning if he kept up that pace for the next 11 games, especially considering who he'll play.

Morris is looking down the barrel at a schedule that still has matchups against the Steelers and Ravens and two each against the Cowboys, Eagles and Giants. And before he can get to any of those games, he takes on the Vikings this week. In fact, only three of his final 11 games come against defenses in the bottom half of the league in run defense. Compare that to the Redskins' first five opponents -- four are currently in that bottom half of run defenses and the fifth is the Bucs, who are technically a Top 5 run D but are the only team among the Top 16 that's allowed four rushing touchdowns (in only four games).

Reality is such that defensive coaches are starting to get a beat on Morris, and that could make it harder for him to deliver big rushing numbers from week to week, especially once the competition gets tougher. Those same coaches are also finding ways to drop the hammer on Robert Griffin III, Morris' quarterback. It's no secret that part of Morris' success is thanks to the passing and running threat RG3 provides. Griffin's abilities earn him the eyeballs of most defenders while Morris can take advantage of light coverage. Though it wasn't much of a glimpse, we saw what life would be like without Griffin on the field for Morris this past week when he ran for 6 yards on three handoffs from Kirk Cousins. Griffin is expected to be fine after a concussion knocked him out of Week 5, but if he were to miss any time, the focus of the Redskins' opponents would shift from quarterback to running back.

But forget about that sad scenario and focus on what Morris represents now: A big trade chip. Most everyone either drafted Morris with a late-round pick or got him off waivers. That means he wasn't taken as a starter -- he's just played like one. Whether you need to or want to, dealing Morris for a good starter or two is something that can be done now. In fact, if you have good depth at running back but are thin elsewhere, flipping Morris might save your season. Here are some deals that have gone down for Morris:

Week Opponent Rank vs. run
6 vs. MIN 6th
7 at NYG 16th
8 at PIT 11th
9 vs. CAR 23rd
10 bye --
11 vs. PHI 12th
12 at DAL 15th
13 vs. NYG 16th
14 vs. BAL 20th
15 at CLE 26th
16 at PHI 12th
17 vs. DAL 15th

Alfred Morris for Vincent Jackson and Jordy Nelson: A deal like this works for the Morris owner who is loaded at running back and needs help at wide receiver. Jackson and Nelson haven't exactly come close to expectations this year -- Nelson is basically getting unloaded in this deal -- but the value both receivers should give makes this a big win for the team getting them.

Alfred Morris for Reggie Wayne: Sometimes you can only get one stud receiver instead of two good ones. In this case, the trade is even based on current trade values. But again, if the Morris owner needed receiver help, this trade is on the money.

Alfred Morris for Cam Newton: We'll discuss Cam Newton's struggles and plummeting value later this week, but as far as this trade is concerned, it's even. Like the Wayne trade, the Morris owner probably wanted to lock up an upgrade at quarterback while dishing depth from his running back corps.

Alfred Morris and Malcom Floyd for Ryan Mathews: I thought this was an interesting deal. Mathews' value is sky-high after he shined against the Saints on Sunday. Not that Morris' value isn't -- but the "sweetener" of Floyd makes the deal work. If anything, Floyd is too good of a receiver to throw in, but given Mathews' reputation compared to the uncertainty Morris' future holds, the deal isn't a horrible one.

Lions' president optimistic team will re-sign Ndamukong Suh
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1:47 pm ET) Lions team president Tom Lewand is expecting the team to be able to re-sign defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

"I really do believe he's got a lot invested in here, in himself and the community and the football team," Lewand said Sunday morning during an interview on WDIV-TV's Flashpoint. "He wants to have success in the NFL, obviously, but he wants to do that with us.

"I think there's a very, very good chance that we can get something done with him in the next few weeks."

Suh can become a free agent if the team does not use their franchise tag on him by March 2. 

"We've had a good chunk of our salary cap tied up in three players over the last few years," Lewand told WDIV. "Matthew, Calvin and Ndamukong have all had very lucrative contracts under the old rookie system, and even as Matthew and Calvin have done their extensions. So we've done that, we've lived in that environment. There's no reason we can't continue to live in that environment."

Bryant is set to become a free agent this offseason if he and the Cowboys cannot agree to a deal or Dallas uses the franchise tag on him.

"I’m a Cowboy at heart. It’s Cowboys forever," Bryant said.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:45 pm ET) Falcons owner Arthur Blank said Sunday the team wants to sign Julio Jones to a contract extension, but it is not his decision to make.

"As the owner, it's not my decision to make," Blank said. "The new coach will spend a great deal of time assessing the roster and all of our players, and obviously Julio is a critical one.

"Well, I think it's a decision that the head coach will look at the talent on the roster," Blank said. "Julio's been a great player for us and a great talent, and he represents us on the field and off the field as well as anybody else."

Jones is set to make $10.2 million in 2015 and will become an unrestricted free agent in 2016 if a new deal is not signed. In 2014, Jones set a franchise-record 1,593 receiving yards in 15 games on 104 receptions with six touchdowns.
