Week 7 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. 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.

Some people gravitate to Patriots running backs because of their cupcake role in a dynamic offense. Others scramble away from them because of their head coach. Bill Belichick has been known to lean on a running back one week and not use him the next because his skills aren't what they look for in their game plan. The Patriots tailor their offense to the weaknesses of their opponent; sometimes that means a betweeen-the-tackles runner like Stevan Ridley just doesn't get a lot of use.

But for Ridley, a lightened load is less than 18 carries. Through six weeks, Ridley has matched or exceeded that number four times. Last week he took on a Seahawks defense loaded with talented run stuffers and the Patriots still gave him 16 attempts, partially because they didn't want to risk an extensive injury to Brandon Bolden, who left with a knee problem. Despite fumbles in each of his previous two games (one lost), Ridley is far and away the Patriots' leader in carries and has a good rushing average to go with it. If it keeps up, he'll be a wrecking ball for lesser defenses to contend with because they can't stack the box to contain him (obviously).

What Fantasy owners have to determine is whether they're cool with a back who might not get a ton of work from week to week, depending on how Belichick deciphers his opponent. But in the case of Ridley, he'll still get some carries, even in the face of a tough opponent like the Seahawks in their home nest. That makes him appealing and coming off of his worst game of the season against those Seahawks, perhaps now is the time for a confident Fantasy owner to make a play for Ridley, especially if Ridley's owned by a jittery person who can't handle the purported uncertainty surrounding his rusher.

Here are some actual trades that have gone down on CBSSports.com involving Ridley:

Stevan Ridley and Sidney Rice for Percy Harvin and Jake Locker: As much as I like Harvin as a reliable Fantasy receiver, this seems like too much to give for him. If I owned Harvin and was offered a capable running back and decent receiver for him, I'd make the move if I wanted running back depth -- and who doesn't need running back depth?

Stevan Ridley and Dennis Pitta for Tony Gonzalez: This reeks of an owner freaking out over Ridley's coach and dumping him for an upgrade at tight end. Despite Gonzalez's incredible start to the season and Pitta's poor numbers over the last three weeks, the owner basically chucked Ridley. It's OK to not be in love with Ridley's situation but it doesn't mean you should give him away.

Stevan Ridley for Andre Johnson: Even this trade doesn't work because Johnson's value seems to be in name only. Johnson's disappointing season (25 catches for 358 yards and two touchdowns) isn't reflective of his abilities but rather his role in the Texans' balanced offense and defenses doing what they can to take him away. It's a great idea to trade for Johnson now, but giving Ridley seems like too much given Ridley's performance and potential.

Ankle injury hampered Chris Givens most of last season
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:36 am ET) Rams receiver Chris Givens didn't use it as an excuse, but conceded a nagging ankle injury bothered him most of last season, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Givens had zero touchdown catches after an impressive rookie year in which he caught three scoring passes and produced a reception of 50 or more yards in five straight games.

"It’s been the longest offseason of my life,” Givens said at the start of the offseason conditioning program. "It’s just a constant reminder every day of what I didn’t accomplish — all because I got in my own way. So I’ve been waiting for this day for the longest (time)."


EJ Manuel better prepared for 2014 season
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:17 am ET) Bills quarterback EJ Manuel, who dealt with injuries and inconsistency as a rookie, told the Associated Press he's ready to take a big step forward. "I definitely agree there's a lot out there for myself as a quarterback to get better," he said at the team's voluntary conditioning program. "I had some success. And I had some bad games as well. It's obvious."

Manuel said he's not limited in any way by last year's knee injuries and that he feels better prepared for the 2014 season.

"I'm eager about it. I'm excited," he said. "I know there is a lot of area for me to grow. That's why I took these last four months to allow that growth."


Sean Weatherspoon pumped about Falcons' additions
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:50 am ET) Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon recorded 211 tackles and seven sacks in 2011-12 before getting 38 stops and no sacks in an injury-plagued 2013 season. Weatherspoon, 26, told ESPN.com that the team's offseason moves, especially the signing of nose tackle Paul Soliai, will make his job a lot easier.

"Bringing in somebody of that caliber, I've seen him over the years and the way he's been playing,'' Weatherspoon said of Soliai. "He's a big guy and real big for run-stopping. He'll whip up on the center, and that's the apex of the offense. So I think that's something that can be great.

"We signed all our defensive tackles back from last year [Jonathan Babineaux, Corey Peters, Peria Jerry]. Bringing those three guys back along with [Soliai] and bringing a big guy on the outside in [defensive end] Tyson Jackson ... they made some moves, man. It's definitely saying that we're active and we want to turn things around."


Mike Wallace: New offense is 'my style'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10:27 am ET) Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace, a disappointment last season after signing a $60 million contract, said the team's new offensive scheme fits his strengths, reports the Miami Herald.

“My style: Big-play offense,” Wallace said, referring to first-year coordinator Bill Lazor’s system. “I see Ryan [Tannehill is] excited about it. He’s called me about eight, nine times.

“I just want to make some plays for my team,” Wallace continued. “Go out and make some plays for my team and have a much better year than last year. We can't have the kind of year we had last year. We need to be on the same page.”

Wallace caught a career-high 73 passes last season, but set career lows in yards per catch (12.7) and touchdowns (5).
