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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8:46 pm ET) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians indicated Tuesday that tight end Troy Niklas (ankle) is unlikely to play in Week 8 against the Eagles, FOXSports.com reports.

Niklas has missed the last two weeks after suffering an ankle sprain. He has one reception for 16 yards on the season.


Report: Patriots expected to sign DE Alan Branch
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:48 pm ET) The Patriots are expected to sign free-agent defensive end Alan Branch, the Boston Globe reports.

Branch was released by the Bills after a DUI arrest in August. The Patriots reportedly are going to be without defensive end Chandler Jones (hip) for about a month, leaving a need to add depth on the defensive line.


Report: Patriots DE Chandler Jones (hip) out multiple weeks
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:16 pm ET) Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones missed practice Tuesday with a hip injury and is expected to be sidelined for about a month, the Boston Globe reports.

Jones recorded four tackles and a sack in the team's Week 7 win over the Jets last Thursday after entering the contest listed as probable. He has posted 4.5 sacks over six games this season.


Panthers LB Luke Kuechly to avoid fine after ejection
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:06 pm ET) Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly will not be fined for making contact with an official during his team's Week 7 loss to the Packers, NFL.com reports.

Kuechly was ejected from Sunday's game after the incident, which the linebacker contends happened because he wasn't aware it was an official pulling him from behind after a play. Panthers coach Ron Rivera disagreed with the decision to eject Kuechly and predicted the linebacker wouldn't face a fine.


Seahawks sign TE Brett Brackett, waive TE RaShaun Allen
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7:03 pm ET) The Seahawks claimed tight end Brett Brackett off waivers from Tennessee Tuesday and waived tight end RaShaun Allen. Brackett played two games with the Titans before being waived Monday.

Colts add Jeff Demps, Konrad Reuland to practice squad
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6:38 pm ET) The Colts signed running back/return specialist Jeff Demps and tight end Konrad Reuland to the practice squad Tuesday, the team announced. The team released quarterback Dominique Davis and wide receiver Chandler Jones to make room for the new additions.

Identifying a few streaming DST options
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6:16 pm ET) If you need to pick up and play a DST unit in Week 8, Jamey Eisenberg identifies three worth snagging in his waiver-wire column: the Colts (59 percent owned) in Pittsburgh, the Cowboys (43 percent) against Washington, and the Dolphins (36 percent) in Jacksonville.

Hitting the wire for tight ends
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6:07 pm ET) With how up-and-down many tight ends have been this season, identifying the right ones on waivers can be a key. In his Week 8 waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg tries to pin down the best ones for you to target this week.

Ravens tight end Owen Daniels, coming off a six-catch performance with a touchdown in Week 7, is the top pick for the 41 percent of CBSSports.com leagues in which he is available. A big reason why is a matchup against the Bengals, who have allowed four double-digit Fantasy scoring games by tight ends this season.

The remainder of the top five for the week is rounded out by Coby Fleener of the Colts (44 percent owned), Charles Clay of the Dolphins (34 percent), Jared Cook of the Rams (47 percent) and Kyle Rudolph of the Vikings (32 percent), who makes more sense as a stash option if you can afford the roster space. 


Prioritizing waiver-wire picks at wide receiver
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6:01 pm ET) In his Week 8 waiver-wire column, Jamey Eisenberg takes a look at the wide receivers most worth adding ahead of this week's games.

The list is headlined by new Seahawks' No. 1 Doug Baldwin (33 percent owned), with Odell Beckham (68 percent) of the Giants, Davante Adams (21 percent) of the Packers, Allen Robinson (34 percent) of the Jaguars and Brandon LaFell (56 percent) of the Patriots rounding out the remainder of the top five.

If you need to drop someone to make room for any pickups this week, he also recommends possibly parting ways with the Vikings' Cordarrelle Patterson (81 percent) or the Steelers' Markus Wheaton (35 percent). 


Falcons WR Roddy White trying to eliminate the drops
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5:53 pm ET) Falcons wideout Roddy White remains down on his play despite catching nine passes for 100 yards and a touchdown Week 7, reports ESPN.com. He has dropped five passes this year, tied for fourth-most in the NFL.

"Mentally, I feel like I'm in the game plan. Mentally, I feel prepared for the games. It's just ... I don't know what it is," he told the website. "I'm not finishing plays. I'm not doing what I'm supposed to do."

White, who turns 33 next month, vowed to fix the problem. And he said injuries are not a factor.

"It's frustrating me," he said. "I'll figure it out, though. I will figure it out."
