Week 12 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. This is our final chart for the 2012 season.

The time to make deals is about to wrap up. Before you can be thankful (assuming you live here in the states), you can make one more deal to bolster your lineup. Or, you could be thankful for the deal you did -- or didn't -- make.

Over the past few weeks we've seen some serious injuries pile up. If you avoided this mid-November injury bug, that's great. If not, then as they like to say, it's part of the game. But these injuries can benefit those Fantasy owners with great depth and Fantasy championship aspirations, particularly if they can wait for the hurt superstars to get better. Here are the studs available at a discount headed into the final six weeks of the season.

Rob Gronkowski, TE, Patriots ... Nightmare scenario: Gronkowski broke his forearm on a fourth quarter extra-point attempt. Don't waste time questioning why Bill Belichick had Gronk on the kicking team in the first place (he happens to be a heck of a blocker) and instead wonder if he's worth carrying for the rest of the season. Broken bones typically take at least four weeks to heal, which might keep the door open for Gronkowski to be available for the Pats' Week 16 game at Jacksonville. But here's a thought: The Patriots have already taken their time getting Aaron Hernandez ready to play some ball (he might go on Thanksgiving at the Jets), so what would motivate them to get Gronk back on the field before the playoffs? The only thing I could think of is if they start to lose some games and cling to a playoff spot, not clinch the AFC East, then maybe they rush Gronk back. But we shouldn't expect to see him until the last two weeks of the year at the earliest. If you can't wait that long -- maybe you need to win now -- then get whatever you can for him. Just don't expect much since someone would be gambling that he'd be around for the end of the season. If someone drops him in your league, then by all means pick him up.

LeSean McCoy, RB, Eagles ... McCoy's role won't change when he gets over the concussion that saw him get carted off the field against the Redskins. Though he hasn't had many big games (just one with 15-plus points in standard formats), he has had a lot of good performances (eight double-digit weeks). But because we don't know when he'll be back, some of his owners might be inclined to move him for a safer option or two. The Eagles' schedule isn't too tough down the stretch and McCoy should still deliver some nice totals once he returns. He could fetch a quality receiver in trade or a couple of very good starters. And if you do make the move to squeeze someone for McCoy, also make it a point to get his handcuff: Bryce Brown.

Julio Jones, WR, Falcons ... It wasn't good when Jones hurt his ankle in Week 10, and it was a lot worse when he aggravated the injury in Week 11. Now there's no word on just how long he'll be out. That means it's a risk to trade for him since he might rest a week. Also, he hasn't quite lived up to the lofty expectations everyone had for him back in August since he has five double-digit Fantasy point totals through 10 games. The smart owner won't give up too much for Jones -- maybe a good running back and a low-end receiver. But he is worth taking the chance on even though his long-term prognosis is not fully known.

Darren McFadden, RB, Raiders ... DMC is another player in the may-or-may-not play soon category. Coach Dennis Allen said he's "hopeful" to get McFadden back this week but it would be a surprise since he suffered a high-ankle sprain two games ago. Further clouding McFadden's potential is Marcel Reece, who has been a yardage dynamo in place of McFadden. A fullback in position only, Reece has 392 total yards in his last three games thanks to his quality hands and rushing opportunities. There's a pretty good chance McFadden won't always have 20 touches on his plate with Reece's role on the rise, but he should still serve as the Raiders' primary rusher. If this were Week 7 or 8 I'd say this is your last chance to get McFadden on the cheap since he'll be back soon, but the reality is that this is really your last chance to get anyone so it doesn't really apply. McFadden's a good buy-low candidate at the deadline.

Willis McGahee, RB, Broncos ... A fracture in his leg and a torn MCL will put McGahee on the shelf for at least six weeks. With six regular-season games left, you can do the math and figure out that his regular season is pretty much shot. That makes him a candidate for the waiver wire and not someone you should sell the farm (or even the fertilizer) for. However, rookie rusher Ronnie Hillman should have some pretty good potential filling in for McGahee as at least a part-time back. If you can get him off waivers, that's great. But even if you have to give up a little something for him he's worth the gamble since any back in the Denver offense should get the chance to be productive.

Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers ... Big Ben's injury (shoulder, rib) was scary to read about but it sounds like he'll be fine. He's got a chance to play by Week 13 at Baltimore, which isn't the easiest matchup in the world. Nor is his matchup against the Cowboys in Week 15, but the rest of the slate is not bad, including a juicy home date vs. the Bengals in Week 16. Chances are the owner who has Roethlisberger is mixing and matching his quarterbacks on a week by week basis. If that's the case then trying to pry him away on the cheap could be a tough chore. Getting Roethlisberger from an owner who's starting a Top 5 or 6 quarterback already will be a much easier task and is a must if you're an owner getting by mixing and matching your passers.

A final word to the wise: Handcuff your stud rushers (if you haven't already). Do it now, and maybe even put a premium on getting the backup via trade. Now's the time -- you do not want to be scrambling for Fantasy help a month or a week from now when Fantasy titles are on the cusp of being claimed.

Redskins CB Bashaud Breeland to miss 4-6 weeks
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/31/2015) Redskins cornerback Bashaud Breeland will miss 4-6 weeks with an MCL injury, according to ESPN.com.

Breeland was carted off the practice field on Friday and was unable to put any pressure on his right leg.


Cowboys starting RB spot is Joseph Randle's to lose
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/31/2015) The Cowboys expect Joseph Randle to win out the battle for the top running back spot this offseason, as a matter of fact, they believe it's his job to lose, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Randle has the vision and explosiveness that is rare among running backs, giving him the edge over oft-injured Darren McFadden.

Randle rushed for 343 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games for Dallas last season.


Browns WR Dwayne Bowe confident Terrelle Pryor will make team
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/31/2015) Browns wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is confident Terrelle Pryor, who he took under his wing after he changed positions from quarterback to receiver, will make the team, according to Cleveland.com.

 "There's no doubt,'' Bowe said after day two of practice. "No doubt. He's extremely talented. He has the work ethic, and he's a team player."

Pryor is working with the second and third team offenses, but has shown a lot of progress since making the change.

"He's making it look so easy that he's starting to scare me,'' said Bowe, who led the NFL with 15 TD catches in 2010. "He's going to be really, really good. People think he's just going to come in and be a body. But he's actually going to play here and make plays for this team."


Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne not taking spot on team for granted
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/31/2015) Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne -- a top-10 pick a few seasons ago -- is not considering himself a lock to make the roster, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Claiborne is trying to show off his work ethic during minicamp in order to ensure he will have a roster spot, which will give him the chance to prove himself come Sundays.

"I'm trying to make the team," Claiborne said. "That's how I look at this whole thing right now, I'm trying to make this team."

Claiborne has been dealing with lingering knee injuries since suffering a season-ending injury during the fourth game of last season and might not be ready for the start of this year.


Saints' Brandin Cooks on being No.1 WR: 'I can do that'
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/31/2015) Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks is confident he can become Drew Brees' top target this season, according to Nola.com.

"No doubt about it," said Cooks when asked Friday if he could become the Saints' main weapon. "That's why I work so hard throughout the offseason. That's what I focus on, to be able to come in and help my team and ultimately be a dominant player like that.

"I definitely feel like I can do that."

Cooks finished with 53 catches for 550 yards and three touchdowns last season after playing just 10 games.


Bears CB Tim Jennings to see nickel role often this season
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/31/2015) Bears cornerback Tim Jennings will be chasing around slot receivers more often this season as he expands his game to include more nickle coverage, per ESPN.com.

Jennings anticipates that this season, with a new defensive scheme, he will be placed in nickle coverage more then ever.

“With the defense we’ll be running now, it [nickelback] fits well to what I’m trying to do, what they’ll want me to do,” Jennings said. “I played a little bit [of nickel] last year, but I’m looking forward to playing more this year.”

Jennings recorded 50 tackles and a forced fumble in 16 games for the Bears last season.


Seahawks FS Earl Thomas to start season on PUP list
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/31/2015) Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas will start the upcoming season on the physically unable to perform list, according to Seattlepi.com.

Thomas, who underwent surgery to repair a separated shoulder in the offseason, might miss some time during the early portion of the season.

“We’re going to be really patient at this time of year,” coach Pete Carroll said. “We’re going to not jump to a decision at all. He’s worked really hard, he’s making great progress. The timeline, let’s just wait and see, and see how long it takes for him to be really safe and secure before he goes out. He plays this game with such reckless abandon, he’s got to be ready to go 100 percent. We’re not going to jump the gun on that at all.”

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2015) Jets rookie wide receiver Devin Smith suffered broken ribs, the team announced on Friday. 

Smith will spend Friday night in the hospital and is out for the remainder of training camp. 

Smith was the second-round pick of the Jets in the 2015 Draft, out of Ohio State. He suffered the injury when he fell hard making a catch.

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/31/2015) The Giants placed tackle Will Beatty on the physically unable to perform list on Friday, according to The New York Daily News.

Beatty is expected to miss five to six month with a torn pectoral muscle.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
