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.

Shoulder issue has Steelers QB Bruce Gradkowski sidelined
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:32 am ET) Steelers backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski has been dealing with a sore shoulder for most of the last two months and is not ready for training camp.

"A couple weeks ... I'm not sure," he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review about a timetable for his return. "It's nothing serious. I am thankful that we have a long training camp and we have plenty of time."

Gradkowski will almost certainly be out when his team plays in the Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 9.


Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney lands on PUP list
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) Texans injury-plagued outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney hoped for availability to start training camp, but that will not happen. He has been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.

Clowney, however, is expected to return by the end of August, per NFL.com. His placement on the PUP list will allow the team to hold him back for the first six weeks of the regular season if his surgically repaired knee is not ready.

He can be activated at any point during training camp.


Eagles release RB Matthew Tucker
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) The Eagles have waived running back Matthew Tucker with a non-football injury, per ESPN.

Tucker spent the last two seasons with the team, but mostly on the practice squad. He did earn playing time in two games as a rookie in 2013, though with no rushing attempts.


Colts LB Robert Mathis still not cleared for on-field activities
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) Colts linebacker Robert Mathis, who missed the 2014 season due to a torn Achilles, has yet to be cleared for on-field activities, owner Jim Irsay told the Indianapolis Star on Monday.

"The good news is Robert is trending in the right direction," Irsay said. "We're all very excited and pleased with the progress that he's making. The timetable is unknown. Will it be October 15? Will it be September 15? I really, at this point, no one knows.

"We just want to make sure that he's ready-ready when it's time to go. He can come in, have a couple of years with us at this point in his career, and be the difference-maker he was. We're really excited about the prospect. Really, it's only been good news."


Raiders LB Sio Moore begins training camp on PUP list
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) The Raiders placed linebacker Sio Moore on the PUP list Monday. The third-year linebacker was placed on IR late last season due to a hip injury.

He can return to practice when he passes a physical examination.


Buccaneers re-sign DL Da'Quan Bowers
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) The Buccaneers re-signed defensive lineman Da'Quan Bowers on Monday. Bowers had been an unrestricted free agent since March.

Bowers has spent his entire career with the Bucs since being selected in the second round of the 2011 draft. He has totaled 66 tackles and seven sacks in 50 NFL games.


Report: Jonathan Martin (back) retiring from football
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/27/2015) Former Dolphins and 49ers offensive lineman Jonathan Martin, who played a major role in Miami's bullying scandal, is retiring from the NFL due to a back issue that will require surgery, a source told NFL.com insider Ian Rapoport. 

Martin was waived by the 49ers in March and picked up by the Panthers; however, the back injury would have kept him out of action for the entire season, and Martin decided to call it quits.

Martin left the Dolphins during the 2013 season citing locker room issues that mainly included bullying by teammate Richie Incognito. He was traded to the 49ers, where he was reunited with his former Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh, starting nine games with the team. 


Browns coach Pettine: Josh McCown the 'likely' QB starter
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/27/2015) Browns coach Mike Pettine, during a session with local reporters on the verge of the team's training camp, reiterated that veteran Josh McCown is the likely starter at quarterback, with Johnny Manziel entrenched in the No. 2 spot, per the Akron Beacon Journal

Pettine added that while he couldn't guarantee McCown would start in the season opener against the Jets, that the experienced signal-caller is firmly the team's top choice at the position heading into camp. 


Redskins QB Colt McCoy confident he can still start in NFL
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/27/2015) Heading into training camp, Colt McCoy remains confident that he can be a starter in the NFL but also realizes the Redskins' QB role belongs to Robert Griffin III, per The Washington Post

McCoy, who signed a one-year deal with Washington after starting one game last season, said he decided to return to the Redskins based on the coaching staff and not his chances to play this year. Even though Griffin is the incumbent, McCoy believes he could step in and contribute.

"I don't think I would be continuing to play if I didn't believe in my heart that I could start every week in this league," he said.


Saints LB Junior Galette passes physical, will be released
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/27/2015) Saints linebacker Junior Galette, who was informed of his release by the team Friday after his January arrest for domestic violence and his role in a video where he apparently was shown striking a woman with a belt during a brawl, passed his final team physical, setting the official stage for his release Monday, per The Times-Picayune.

The physical was necessary because Galette missed time during OTAs and all of minicamp with a pectoral injury, which Galette downplayed. Galette will not pass through waivers and will be free to sign with any team.
