Week 8 Fantasy Trade 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.

We're at that point in the season where trading almost becomes mandatory. If you've got a loaded roster, you're looking for one more move to bolster it and keep your spot at the top of the standings. If you're in contention but saddled with losses, you're looking for a deal or two to catapult your team into the thick of the playoff hunt. And if you're on the brink of a losing season, you're interested in a package that can give your team a chance later on this year.

With seven weeks in the books there's plenty to review as far as who's hot and who's not, but what about the players who are hurt? Without question there are several players hobbled by injuries and buried on Fantasy benches. Should they stay there or should they get moved?

Really, it depends on the Fantasy team. If you're one of those fair to middlin' squads grasping to playoff hopes, selling off an injured stud for a player who can help you now is a good idea. And if you're the owner of a team with a good record and big playoff aspirations -- and you have the depth -- you're the type of team to deal for one of these injured players and wait for them to come back. That's the market right now for guys like Greg Jennings, Pierre Garcon, Trent Richardson and DeMarco Murray.

Let's check out what CBSSports.com Fantasy owners are getting in trade for these types of hobbled heroes.

Greg Jennings for Mike Williams and Jermaine Gresham: So here's an example of an owner acquiring some depth in exchange for an injured stud. If Jennings were healthy this trade would never happen, but the owner thin on talent and desperate for a chance to win this season moved his prominent receiver for some good starting options. The team getting Jennings can probably afford to stash him. This deal works.

Greg Jennings and Alex Smith for Philip Rivers and Lance Moore: This trade is similar to the above deal except the owner getting Jennings is giving up just a little bit more for him. While I personally feel that Jennings is only worth a marginal amount, other owners might see him as a terrific buy-low candidate expecting him back any week (and he could conceivably return sooner than later). But again, a team that needs to win now gave up Jennings and his backup quarterback for a better passer and a healthier receiver.

Pierre Garcon and Darren McFadden for Alfred Morris and DeSean Jackson: The side getting Morris and Jackson wins this deal based on past performance, but anyone expecting Darren McFadden to break out with a favorable schedule coming down the stretch might be willing to sell high on Morris and pony up Jackson for McFadden along with the potential Garcon brings. Truth is, he probably didn't need to give up a receiver as good as Jackson.

Pierre Garcon for James Jones: Here's another example of a team dealing a hurt stud for help now. And frankly, the team acquiring Jones might win out. Jones didn't score last week at St. Louis but has remained a big part of the Packers' offense and should still see some playing time even when Jennings comes back. But that isn't a guarantee, and because it's not, his long-term value is capped but his short-term value is not. Garcon's short-term value is in the toilet but he could be a factor come the Fantasy postseason.

Pierre Garcon for Alex Green and Joel Dreessen: More depth in exchange for a stud worth waiting for. In this case the depth is made up of players picked up off waivers, so it's not such a tough trade to make.

Trent Richardson for Dez Bryant: Richardson's rib injury could keep him out for a game but isn't expected to be a long-term injury. But he could be affected by the injury for a few weeks. An owner got desperate here and moved him for Dez, though the deal isn't quite as bad if it's in a PPR league.

Trent Richardson and Hakeem Nicks for Tom Brady: Per the trade chart, this deal is nearly fair. Maybe the owner getting Brady is giving too much for him. In fact, if Richardson and Nicks were healthy this would be a rip-off. But because the injury bug has bit Richardson and Nicks, the uncertainty around them pushes their respective values down a touch. The owner who had Brady better have a good quarterback behind him in order to make this trade.

DeMarco Murray for Matthew Stafford: A swap of tainted studs? Perhaps, and it's an OK deal. Stafford's value is at an all-time low, but it comes on the heels of an expected loss at Chicago. Up next: A tough battle against the Seahawks at home, and that's not the last tough matchup the Lions' quarterback will have this year. Dumping him for a potential stud running back once he's back on the field isn't such a bad move -- assuming Murray heals quickly. That's the gamble any owner acquiring Murray is taking.

David Wilson takes a hit, feels good
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5:33 pm ET) Giants running back David Wilson "definitely" feels ready for football after taking a hit from linebacker Cooper Taylor in training camp practice on Friday. Wilson has come all the way back from a neck injury that halted his 2013 season. 

"That felt good," Wilson said to the New York Daily News. "I definitely know I'm cleared now."


Cordarrelle Patterson sits out as precaution
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4:55 pm ET) Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson did not practice Friday because of a "tweaked foot," reports the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

He was sitting out as a precaution, and the injury is not expected to be serious.


Carl Nicks, Bucs part ways
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4:53 pm ET) Carl Nicks and the Buccaneers have agreed to an "amicable" injury settlement, ending the guard's tenure with the team, FOX Sports reports. Nicks developed turf toe two years ago and it ended up becoming a complicated problem that forced him to miss all but two games of the 2013 season. 

Nicks said in a statement that he's going to "step away from the game." 


Report: Lynch's holdout won't last long
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4:17 pm ET) Marshawn Lynch's holdout from Seahawks training camp will "probably" last five or six days at the most says ESPN's John Clayton, who figures the running back will balk once he realizes he won't get any new money added on to his deal. Lynch has held out through the very early days of camp because he wants a new deal just two years after signing his current contract. 

Chiefs to keep feeding Jamaal Charles
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3:43 pm ET) The Chiefs don't plan to lighten the workload for running back Jamaal Charles this season, reports ESPN.

"I think he's got a lot in the tank," coach Andy Reid said. “We're going to keep using him. He's a good football player and he enjoys playing the game, so we'll keep getting him the football." 


Jeremy Maclin headed for big year
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3:40 pm ET) Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin, who is coming back from last year's torn ACL, is expected to be the No. 1 option in the passing game with DeSean Jackson now gone, reports Comcast Sports Net.

And if that's the case, Maclin could post the best stats of his career. His best season to date was 70 catches for 964 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2010.

"As far as numbers and everything, I've never really got into numbers," Maclin said. "But if they plan on me being a big part of this offense like I think they are, I think the numbers will come. I'm not going to get wrapped up in all that. That’s how I'm going to approach the season."


Rob Gronkowski not yet 100 percent
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3:19 pm ET) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski said Friday he plans to make a fearless return to the field this season and put a string of injuries behind him, reports WEEI in Boston. Gronkowski is coming back from a torn ACL in 2013.

As for being at full strength, Gronkowski cautioned that there is still plenty of work remaining before that hurdle is cleared.

"If it were 100 percent, I'd be doing every single thing so no, I'm not 100 percent right now, obviously not," Gronkowski said. "I'm working my way to get to that and I'm working every single day to get to that and improving every single day. I'm preparing myself to my max ability right now for the first regular game. I can't really say anything from here on out because it's far away. Every single day, I'm just giving it everything I've got in the rehab room and out here on the field. I'm preparing myself and listening to my trainers, what they have for me so that I'm ready to go when it comes down to it. Hopefully, I am.

"No timetable at all. Just keep improving every single day and we'll see what the trainers want me to do. They've been through plenty of knee injuries throughout their years here."


Handful of Colts sit out practice
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2:52 pm ET) In addition to Trent Richardson missing practice on Friday, the Colts have safety LaRon Landry, cornerback Vontae Davis and rookie guard Jack Mewhort all sitting out according to the Indianapolis Star. Landry and Davis' situations have been deemed precautionary. 

Trent Richardson not practicing Friday
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2:49 pm ET) Colts running back Trent Richardson is not practicing Friday, their second full day of training camp, according to the Indianapolis Star. Richardson had trainers working on his left leg on Thursday but he was able to finish practice.

Richardson is coming back from a chipped collarbone and a separated AC joint in his shoulder he played with last season. 


Vick Ballard leaves practice with injury
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2:46 pm ET) Colts running back Vick Ballard went down during practice Friday and had to be carted off the field, reports the Indianapolis Star.

It is believed to be a left ankle injury, and he wasn't putting any weight on the ankle before leaving. Ballard is coming back from last year's torn ACL.
