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.

Texans DT Brandon Ivory arrested on burglary charge
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2015) Texans defensive tackle Brandon Ivory was arrested Wednesday morning in Alabama and charged with first-degree burglary, according to a Tuscaloosa Police Department report obtained by SportingNews.com.

Ivory and another man were allegedly involved in a home burglary when the two entered the residence by kicking open the back door and then demanding money from the residents. The two stole money and two Ipads from the residence. Ivory and the other suspect were arrested at their apartment shortly after the incident with the stolen money and property.


Embattled Brandon Spikes pleads guilty to leaving scene of crash
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/1/2015) Former Patriots and Bills linebacker Brandon Spikes has pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of a recent car crash and has received a fine and year of probation, per WBZ, which is further reporting that he has lost his license and will be forced to attend a driver's safety class.

Spikes has lost far more than his license. He has lost his livelihood, having been cut by New England for hitting another car and abandoning his vehicle on the highway. He later told the police that he had hit a deer.

No other teams have been rumored to be targeting Spikes for the coming season.


Terrelle Pryor ready to embrace new role with Browns
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2015) Terrelle Pryor once declared that he could not play football if he could not play quarterback.

Reality has since set in.

Pryor has been cut twice and is now playing on a Cleveland Browns team desperate for a quarterback, but apparently not desperate enough to give him a shot. He is instead embracing what he is calling a "slash-player" role.

"I'm going to give (it) a chance," he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "I just want to play football. I'm a playmaker, and I believe if I can touch the ball, I can go to the house, especially if I have space. This should definitely open up some opportunities."

Pryor has already taken the first step by contacting Steelers receiving stud Antonio Brown and making plans to work out with him and Randy Moss so they can teach him the nuances of the position.

He also figures there's another reason he's ahead of the game.

"The thing that helps me is that I played quarterback, and I know what the quarterback wants," Pryor said.


Lions new DT Haloti Ngata too busy to think about new contract
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2015) Defensive tackle Haloti Ngata had his contract in mind in his last days with the Ravens, but he's too busy to think about it now that he's been traded to the Lions.

Ngata admitted that he suspected a deal could take place.

"The closer we got to free agency, I thought it could be a possibility," he told Monday Morning Quarterback. "It didn't surprise me ... since we weren't getting closer to any kind of contract stuff, I just figured there were a lot of things that could happen. I definitely started to have a trade in my mind as a possibility."

Ngata added that he's not thinking about a contract extension with Detroit.

"I'm just trying to get to know my teammates, get my playbook down, and my technique and terminology," he said.


Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon claims he'd pick himself in Fantasy
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2015) Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon doesn't have a Fantasy football team, but if he did...

"If ... I could take myself, I would," he told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Never mind that Adrian Peterson has returned to the backfield. Never mind that Peterson has traditionally not yielded many carries to teammates. In 2012, for instance, he totaled 348 of his team's 401 rushing attempts.

The Vikings, however, are expected to use a more balanced approach in 2015. And McKinnon, who flashed as a starter with Peterson sidelined last season, is feeling dandy after undergoing lower back surgery in December.

"Two hundred percent," he declared in regard to his health. "If there is a 300, I feel 300. It's all good."

McKinnon averaged 4.8 yards per carry a year ago, which buoyed his confidence.


Lions RB Joique Bell predicting at least a 1,200-yard season
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2015) Lions featured back Joique Bell is coming off a knee injury that has sidelined him throughout the offseason and has also been dealing with an Achilles issue. But his confidence is not hurt at all.

Bell has made a rather lofty prediction for 2015, particularly for a guy that has never rushed for more than 860 yards in a season. He claims he will exceed that by plenty.

"I'm going to rush for over 1,200 yards," he told MLive.com. "That's the minimum. If I do less than that, I'll be surprised. I'll be disappointed. Anything more than that, I wouldn't be surprised at all."

Bell averaged a mediocre 3.9 yards per carry in both of the last two years.


Report: LB Kyle Knox gets four-game suspension from NFL
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2015) Free agent linebacker Kyle Knox will get a four-game suspension from the league, NFL beat writer Howard Balzer reported. 

Knox as released by New Orleans in the offseason. Dallas signed him in June and released him three days later. 

Knox has played in 16 games for New Orleans and Jacksonville over the last two seasons.


Eagles sign John Moffitt, release Cole Manhart
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2015) As expected, the Eagles signed center John Moffitt to a one-year contract on Monday, per Philly.com.

Moffitt was a third-round draft pick in 2011 and played two years for Seattle. He was traded to Denver and retired early in the 2013 season. 

He was arrested in 2014 on assault and drug charges, which were later dropped. 

To make room, the Eagles released undrafted rookie free agent Cole Manhart


Chiefs' Jeremy Maclin off to best start ever with Alex Smith
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2015) New Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin has hit it off with quarterback Alex Smith during the offseason. 

Maclin came to Kansas City from Philadelphia in the offseason, and his communication with Smith has been more than either player expected. 

“I don’t think I’ve ever been off to a better start with a particular quarterback in my life,” Maclin said, per KCChiefs.com.

Offensive coordinator Doug Pederson, like head coach Andy Reid, brought the Philadelphia offense to Kansas City, which has helped Maclin's transition. 

“He’s only a couple years removed from our system,” Pederson said. “We’ve changed some things since he’s been in the offense, but he’s such a smart, savvy, veteran guy that he’s picked up on what we’re doing really fast. He and Alex have sort of developed that continuity right away.”


Redskins' David Amerson looks to win back starting job
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2015) After a sub-par 2014 season, Redskins cornerback David Amerson is no longer expected to be a starter. Bashaud Breeland and free agent pickup Chris Culliver have knocked Amerson down to a nickelback role. 

Amerson lost the job after a season in which he indecisive and lacked aggression, he admitted to the Washington Post. Amerson didn't record an interception and had just seven pass breakups. 

“At the end of the day, that’s all it comes down to: just making plays. That’s the thing I felt like I was missing last year: being that big play-maker, game-changer,” Amerson said. “I basically had been that all my life, but it was different for me last year. It was unusual for me. So I need to get back into my groove and just find my swag. … Like I said, I’ve been that all my life, and always had that – I wouldn’t call it a gambling type of mentality – but knowing when to go and make that play, when to step up. It’s something I think a lot of people naturally have in them, and knowing when to bring it out. I just have to have that mindset.”
