Week 11 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.

What if I told you there was a 20-touch running back available in your league? A guy whose name has basically been synonymous with the word "potential" since he was drafted into the NFL. A player who has received plenty of work but hasn't shown much for it so far this season.

Would you buy low? Because if you would, chances are the Ryan Mathews owner in your league would be all ears.

The last four games have been a big disappointment for Mathews' Fantasy production yet highlight his relevance to the Chargers and thus to Fantasy owners. In his last four he has 20-plus touches in three games (15 touches in the game he didn't get to 20 touches). That's good, right? Fantasy owners typically crave running backs who get that kind of work. But in those games he's scored zero touchdowns, fumbled the ball away once and clawed his way to just over 100 total yards once. He has only one run of 20-plus yards in that span too. That's not so good.

Worst of all, he's posted single-digit Fantasy points in all four games. Thus, his value is in the tank.

That's your cue to jump into trade talks. Mathews is worth adding to your Fantasy squad if you're running back needy or if you want to add some ... here comes that word again ... potential to your lineup.

Now there's no promise that he's going to suddenly pop off long runs or pick up bushels of touchdowns. He's still expected to keep losing passing down reps to Ronnie Brown and short-yardage/goal-line reps to Jackie Battle. But he's also expected to keep getting work as the primary Chargers running back because, after all, he's a better player than Brown and Battle.

Let's see what the market is like for Mathews heading into the trade deadline week for many of you.

Ryan Mathews for DeSean Jackson: Even with Mathews' weak production, this seems like a pretty good deal for the owner giving up Jackson. The Eagles' wideout has continued his inconsistent ways, failing to post even eight-plus Fantasy points in back-to-back games in standard leagues. Mathews' touches and role give him an edge over Jackson, especially now that a rookie is under center in Philadelphia. Jackson isn't enough for Mathews.

Ryan Mathews for Vincent Jackson: If the previous Jackson wasn't enough for Mathews, this one might be too much. Vincent Jackson is slightly more consistent than DeSean Jackson but he has had more big games and has a better quarterback, not to mention a better schedule. This trade works if the owner giving up Jackson is deep at receiver and weak at running back, but otherwise it just might be a smidge too much for Mathews even though Mathews plays at the premium position.

Ryan Mathews and Ben Roethlisberger for Miles Austin and Alfred Morris: Forget about this deal now that Big Ben hurt his shoulder, but had Roethlisberger gone unscathed it still would have been a bit sweeter for the team getting Morris and Austin. Morris is considered the safer Fantasy back at this point as he's coming off a bye and has some decent matchups down the stretch, though he could post even better numbers if the Redskins' passing game can become threatening again. And Austin is still considered a good Fantasy starter even though he's been in a two-week cold spell. Ultimately it's a tough break for the owner who just got Roethlisberger.

Ryan Mathews and Jared Cook for Jermaine Gresham and Dwayne Bowe: If we're talking PPR, the deal is fine. But in a standard league it seems like the Mathews owner is selling short. Or maybe he or she is just trying to solidify the tight end spot on his roster and pick up a receiver along the way. If Cook was a better tight end then it would work.

Ryan Mathews, Jackie Battle, Aaron Hernandez and Carson Palmer for Doug Martin and Ryan Fitzpatrick: These trades happen all the time near Fantasy trade deadlines where an owner on the cusp of a playoff spot deals off a stud to fill up the roster at other positions. The Mathews/Battle combo platter pales in comparison to Martin but Aaron Hernandez should make an impact once his ankle heals and Palmer is a good upgrade over Fitzpatrick. That gives the team with fledgling playoff hopes a chance to compete and a winning deal. But the owner getting Martin shouldn't be moody over the deal either -- he probably traded his backup quarterback and a tight end he hasn't been able to use for one of the best rushers in Fantasy. The trade chart says the Mathews package is more valuable but playoff-bound teams can afford to give a lot to get a stud.

Jonas Gray hopes to return to Patriots' plans
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(12:44 pm ET) Jonas Gray burst on the scene for the Patriots last season, rushing for 201 yards and four touchdowns in a Sunday night game. Just as quickly, he was gone. 

Gray overslept and was late for practice, and coach Bill Belichick didn't give him another chance to showcase his skills. Gray was inactive for the Super Bowl. 

Gray learned his lesson. "The tough part for me was to watch it, and not participate in a matter I thought I should," he told Dan Hanzus of NFL.com. "But it's motivation going into the offseason. I just know I need to work harder, so I'll never get myself in that position again." 

Still on the Patriots, Gray believes he'll get a clean slate next season, and he's spending the offseason preparing himself for the opportunity. 

I tell them, I'm going to have a Jerry Rice/Walter Payton mentality where whatever you do isn't enough," Gray said. "I'm going to have a work ethic where I know, in my heart of hearts, I'm going to outwork everybody. That's what I hope to achieve


Ravens' Justin Forsett wants to build on 2014
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(12:27 pm ET) Ravens RB Justin Forsett rushed for 1,266 yards and eight touchdowns, nearly matching his career totals for his six previous seasons in the NFL. 

Forsett is scheduled to be a free agent on March 10, but he hopes to remain with the Ravens, saying he's "praying that everything works out." 

“I want to build upon it,” Forsett told the Baltimore Sun. “I want to be great. I didn’t come in this league to be a one-year wonder."


Lions' Stephen Tulloch progressing from ACL surgery
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11:00 am ET) Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch said he is ahead of schedule in his recovery from ACL surgery, reports FOXSports.com.

Tulloch said he was way ahead of schedule and feeling stronger since undergoing the surgery. Tulloch tore his ACL during a post-play celebration in September.


Reggie Bush says he doesn't plan to retire
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) Three days after being released by the Lions, RB Reggie Bush said he has no plans to retire. 

TMZ reporters confronted Bush outside a Beverly Hills restaurant and asked if Bush, who turns 30 on Monday, was going to quit football. Bush responded with, "No." 

Bush rushed for 297 yards and two touchdowns last season. 


Report: Cowboys to let DeMarco Murray test free agency
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) The Cowboys will let RB DeMarco Murray test the free-agent market, according to a report from Fox Sports Southwest

Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said that negotiations with Murray's agents have been "slow". 

Jones said that Murray "is probably going to get some peace and see what's out in the market, and then we'll talk and see. I do believe deep down he'd love to stay in Dallas."

Murray rushed for 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns last season. 


Report: Cowboys to use franchise tag on Dez Bryant
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) The Cowboys will use the franchise tag on WR Dez Bryant on Monday, according to a report by Fox Sports Southwest

The team has been trying to negotiate a long-term contract with Bryant, a free-agent to be. If a deal can't be made by Monday's franchise tag deadline, the Cowboys will use the tag to keep Bryant a Cowboy. 

"I still think that (it) would be a stretch to think that we would have something done by Monday and beat the franchise-tag deadline," Cowboys VP Stephen Jones told Fox. "Looks like we're eyeing a franchise tag on Dez, but certainly won't stop us from working hard to get a long-term deal. ... We just don't want to lose his rights."

Bryant had 88 catches for 1,320 yards and 16 touchdowns last year. 


QB Josh McCown's contract with Browns worth $14 million
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) Quarterback Josh McCown's deal with the Browns will pay $14 million over three years, a league source told CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

With incentives related to playing time and playoff berths, McCown could earn $20 million over the course of the deal.

McCown will earn $6.25 million in fully guaranteed money, with $5.25 million of it coming in the first year of the deal.


Report: Panthers won't re-sign Greg Hardy
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) Panthers DE Greg Hardy is scheduled to become a free agent on March 10. He missed most of last season while appealing his conviction for domestic violence. 

Even though the charges were dropped on appeal, the Panthers have no intention of bringing Hardy back, multiple league sources told BlackandBlueReview.com's Bill Voth


Texans' Brian Cushing has had three offseason surgeries
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) Texans LB Brian Cushing has had three surgeries since the end of the season. 

In a public appearance on Saturday, Cushing told the Houston Chronicle's John McClain that he's had surgery on his broken right wrist as well as arthroscopic procedures on his left knee and left ankle. 

"It’s not uncommon for stuff like that to happen," he said of the two arthroscopic surgeries. "It’s just little things here and there, the residual effects of two major surgeries and injuries, the wear and tear of playing throughout the season. There were still some things bothering me a little bit. Just went in there and had real good success in both areas."

Cushing has a cast on his wrist. “It’s coming along real well,” he said. “I’m going to start working out a little bit. From a pain standpoint, there’s really nothing going on there. I’m real happy about that. I’m real happy to get the cast off and start doing some physical therapy on it, and I don’t have to worry about it anymore."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) The 49ers are expected to release wide receiver Steve Johnson, according to Dianna Marie Russini of NBC Washington D.C.

The move will reportedly save the team $5.5 million in cap space. Johnson had 35 catches for 435 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games last season.
