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.

Matt Forte sets Bears' RB single-season receiving record in loss
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:42 pm ET) Bears running back Matt Forte had one of his worst performances of the season during a 34-17 loss Thursday at Detroit. Forte was held to a season-low 6 yards on five carries, while adding six catches for 52 yards.

Despite the off day, Forte made a little franchise history. With a 22-yard catch on the Bears' opening drive, Forte became the franchise leader for most receiving yards in a season by a running back. The previous record was held by Walter Payton, who had 607 receiving yards in 1983. 

Forte's previous best for a single season was 594 receiving yards, which he set in 2013. The Bears are back in action Week 14 vs. Dallas.


Titans' starting tackles still sidelined Thursday
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:35 pm ET) Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan (ankle) and right tackle Michael Oher (toe) missed practice for a second straight day Thursday, reports The Tennessean. Coach Ken Whisenhunt told the paper he's still hopeful they'll progress in time to play Sunday at Houston.

Bears QB Jay Cutler throws for two TDs, two INTs in Week 13 loss
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:34 pm ET) After recording two first-quarter touchdowns, quarterback Jay Cutler and the Bears offense struggled over the final three quarters during a 34-17 loss Thursday against the Lions. Cutler completed 31 of 48 passes for 280 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

Cutler had the offense moving well early in the game, as he opened the scoring with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery less than 5 minutes into the game. He then gave Chicago a 14-3 lead with a 6-yard touchdown pass to Jeffery with 3:35 left in the first quarter.

Unfortunately, the only other scoring drive Cutler would lead Chicago on finished with a 35-yard field goal by Robbie Gould in the third quarter.

Cutler has thrown for multiple touchdowns in three of the last five games. He has thrown multiple interceptions in three of his last four games. The Bears are back in action Week 14 vs. Dallas.

(4:25 pm ET) Dolphins linebacker Jonathan Freeny (hamstring) and cornerback Jamar Taylor (shoulder) have been ruled out for Monday's game at the Jets.

Raiders RB Latavius Murray has 'one step to go'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:22 pm ET) Raiders running back Latavius Murray, who suffered a concussion Week 12, was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday. He must get cleared by an independent neurologist to play Sunday at St. Louis.

"He still has one step to go," coach Tony Sparano told the San Francisco Chronicle. "We're not there yet."


Despite tweet, Saints RB Khiry Robinson still out
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:17 pm ET) Despite tweeting that his return was imminent, Saints running back Khiry Robinson remained out of practice Thursday, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune. Robinson has missed five straight games ahead of Sunday's visit to Pittsburgh.

Lions QB Matthew Stafford throws for 390 yards in Week 13 win
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:13 pm ET) Quarterback Matthew Stafford threw for a season-high 390 yards and two touchdowns in the Lions' 34-17 win vs. Chicago on Thanksgiving. While Stafford -- who completed 34 of 45 passes -- didn't throw an interception, he did lose a fumble in the first half, which led to a touchdown for Chicago.

It comes as no surprise Stafford's favorite target Thursday was star receiver Calvin Johnson, who totaled 11 catches for 146 yards. Johnson also caught both of Stafford's touchdowns. He had a 25-yard touchdown catch early in the second quarter and a 6-yard touchdown catch right before halftime.

Stafford has thrown for two touchdowns in four of his last six games. The Lions are back in action Week 14 vs. Tampa Bay.


49ers shuffle roster
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:08 pm ET) The 49ers put tight end Derek Carrier (foot) on injured reserve and released linebacker Chase Thomas. In corresponding moves, the team activated tight end Garrett Celek from short-term IR and promoted tight end Asante Cleveland from the practice squad.

Lions' Joique Bell totals more than 100 yards, two TDs Week 13
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:06 pm ET) With Reggie Bush sidelined a third straight game Week 13 due to an ankle injury, Lions running back Joique Bell stepped up in his absence during a 34-17 win. Bell rushed for a team-high 91 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries, while adding two catches for 16 yards.

Bell gave Detroit a 17-14 lead with a 1-yard touchdown run with 3:18 left in the second quarter. Bell added another 1-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter, giving Detroit a 31-17 lead. It was the second multitouchdown game of his career.

The 23 carries and 91 rushing yards were season highs for Bell, who has surpassed 80 rushing yards in two of his last three games. He has five rushing touchdowns in 11 games.

The Lions are back in action Week 14 vs. Tampa Bay.


Megatron feasts on Bears defense in Thanksgiving showdown
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3:57 pm ET) Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was the star of Thursday's game against the Bears, totaling 11 catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns in a 34-17 win Week 13. He was targeted 16 times.

It was the 42nd time Johnson surpassed 100 yards in his career, which ties him with Cris Carter for 15th all-time. Johnson now has 11 career games with at least 10 receptions.

Also, late in the first half Thursday, Johnson became the fastest to reach 10,000 receiving yards in NFL history. It took Johnson just 115 games to accomplish the feat, besting Torry Holt, who reached 10,000 receiving yards in 116 games.

Johnson has surpassed 100 yards three times this season and twice in his last four games. He had his first multitouchdown game Thursday since Week 1 against the Giants. He's managed at least two receiving touchdowns 15 times in his career.

The Lions are back in action Week 14 against Tampa Bay.
