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.

Stephen Tulloch out for season due to knee injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:28 pm ET) Lions coach Jim Caldwell announced Monday linebacker Stephen Tulloch will be placed on injured reserve after suffering a torn ACL Sunday against the Packers. Tulloch was injured during a post-play celebration.

Sources: Jason Kelce likely needs surgery for sports hernia
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:18 pm ET) Eagles center Jason Kelce has a sports hernia injury and likely needs surgery, NFL sources told The Philadelphia Inquirer. Kelce could miss up to two months or more, but additional tests will help determine the length of his absence.

Dan Bailey sets Cowboys record for consecutive FGs made
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:54 am ET) Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey extended his streak of consecutive field goals made to 28 during a 34-31 win Week 3 at St. Louis, which set a new franchise record. The previous mark was set by his former kicking coach, Chris Boniol, in 1996. 

"Knowing him, I know he’ll be happy for me, but he’ll also be telling me to keep stringing 'em together," Bailey said, per ESPN.


Report: Bears optimistic injured WRs play Monday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:46 am ET) The Bears remain optimistic wide receivers Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) will play Monday against the Jets, barring any surprise setbacks, according to The Chicago Tribune. Both players are listed as questionable for Week 3.

Trent Richardson's playing time eclipses Ahmad Bradshaw's
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:43 am ET) For the first time all season, Trent Richardson saw the field more than Ahmad Bradshaw in Week 3 against the Jaguars, according to StampedeBlue.com, a Colts blog.

Richardson has shown signs of life over the last few games, and the team rewarded him with 38 of the team's 74 offensive plays. Bradshaw, on the other hand, was limited to just 25 snaps, despite averaging more yards per rush and reception. Entering Week 3, Bradshaw had played 29 more snaps than Richardson through the first two games.

The Colts are heavily invested in Richardson finding his way, and if Sunday's game is any reflection, the team is starting to reflect that in the workload. Keep an eye on this moving forward, Fantasy owners.  


Andrew Hawkins nearing a breakout
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:33 am ET) Browns wide receiver Andrew Hawkins is still unowned in 45 percent of CBSSports.com Fantasy leagues heading into Week 4, and that number needs to shrink.

Fantasy production is all about opportunities, and few receivers have had as many as Hawkins this season. He is currently in a three-way tie for third place in the NFL with 33 targets, and Hawkins has hauled in 63.6 percent of the passes thrown his way thus far. He has yet to find the end zone, but that should come with time -- he scored once every 20 targets in 2012, the only season he received anything like a full workload. He has already been pulled down five times in the red zone this season. 

The Browns have a decidedly vanilla offense, but Hawkins has earned the trust of quarterback Brian Hoyer, who has thrown 34.7 percent of his passes Hawkins' way. His massive workload should pay dividends soon enough, and you will want to be there when Hawkins starts finding the end zone. 


Report: Lions ready to make a change at kicker
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:22 am ET) The Lions are going to make a change at kicker, according to the Detroit Free Press. Detroit is planning to sign former Eagles kicker Alex Henery after kicker Nate Freese missed another field goal attempt Week 3.

Freese has converted just 43 percent of his field goal attempts (3 for 7) through three games. All four of his misses have come from 40-49 yards.


Niles Paul taking advantage of Jordan Reed's absence
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:20 am ET) Redskins tight end Niles Paul entered this season with 14 receptions through his first 44 NFL games, so his ascension to the top of the tight end ranks has been a huge surprise, to say the least. Can he keep it up?

Washington has thrown the ball around a ton this season, as the team's 121 passing attempts through three games ranks fifth in the NFL. 24 of those passes have gone Paul's way, and he has hauled in 18 of them for 253 yards, landing him squarely in the top-10 in receiving yards so far. Only Jimmy Graham has more yards than Paul, among tight ends.

Unfortunately, one player looms large with the potential to derail Paul's breakout season. Fellow tight end Jordan Reed has not played or practiced since leaving Week 1's game with a hamstring injury, but he was supposed to be the team's big breakout candidate this season. If he gets back to health, Paul's time in the spotlight could come to an end.

Fortunately for Paul's Fantasy owners, Reed's recovery from his injury has been extremely slow. Paul looks like a must-start Fantasy option, at least as long as Reed is out, so watch those practice reports. 


Coach confident DeMarco Murray will fix fumbling issue
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:13 am ET) Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is off to a great start in 2014. He's rushed for more than 100 yards and has a rushing touchdown in each of the first three games.

However, it hasn't been all positives for Murray, who has also lost a fumble in each game this season.

"It’s very disappointing," Murray said of his fumbling issues, per ESPN. "I’m very disappointed in letting that one go. I’ve got to get it fixed and I will get it fixed."

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett has the utmost confidence in Murray correcting his fumbling problems.

"We’re going to continue to give him the ball and he’s got to get it right," Garrett said. "He’s going to get it right."


How will the Chargers replace Danny Woodhead?
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:09 am ET) With do-everything running back Danny Woodhead reportedly out for an extensive period of time, the Chargers find themselves looking to plug some major holes in the backfield. Though Donald Brown did a serviceable Ryan Mathews impression while carrying a truly massive load in Week 3 against the Bills, Woodhead's absence leaves the team searching for another dimension.

Among the players on the depth chart, neither Brown nor reserve Branden Oliver seems likely to replicate Woodhead's skillset -- few players in the NFL can. Brown's career-high in receptions came a year ago, when he hauled in 27 passes for the Colts -- that's about four good games of work from Woodhead. Oiliver is likely to see a larger role than the three carries he received in Week 3, and he might be the nearest thing the team has to what Woodhead leaves behind. 

Oliver had just 25 receptions as a senior at the University of Buffalo, but was a much more productive receiver earlier in his career. He hauled in 38 passes for 365 yards as a sophomore in 2011, good for third on the team in both categories, so he has some skills as a receiver.

With just three carries and no receptions under his belt in his NFL career, Oliver is very much an unknown quantity at this point. You won't want to rush out and add him this week, but keep an eye on how the team utilizes him in Week 4 against the Jaguars, a matchup which could get him plenty of work.
