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.

Eagles RB LeSean McCoy: 'I'm just not getting it done'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:51 pm ET) Eagles featured back LeSean McCoy is at a loss to explain his recent struggles.

"I'm just not getting it done. I don't know what to tell you," he said to CSNPhilly.com.

McCoy performed well enough in the first two games, but has proven ineffective since. He has just 39 yards in 29 carries for a 1.3 YPC average over the past two games. He has also not caught a pass after snagging 10 in the first two games combined.


Chuck Pagano pegs Sergio Brown as new starter
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:48 pm ET) Colts coach Chuck Pagano told ESPN.com that safety Sergio Brown will start Sunday in place of LaRon Landry, who was suspended four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. Brown mainly has played on special teams. He has one tackle in three games played.

Falcons WR Harry Douglas still a no-go Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:45 pm ET) Mike Smith has stated that he anticipates Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas will return to practice this week - but it didn't happen Wednesday.

Douglas remains sidelined with a foot injury that prevented him from playing in Week 4. He has snagged 12 passes for 121 yards and one touchdown in three games, though much of that production was achieved in the season opener.


CB coach warning Packers about Vikings WR Greg Jennings
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:40 pm ET) Packers cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt has sent a word of warning to his players through the media - Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings has returned to form.

"Greg is back, OK?" Whitt said via NFL.com. "I don't know if he was hurt or what happened last year. He looks like the old Greg Jennings. He's fast, he's quick, he's elusive, he's really creative in his route-running. He's fun to watch run routes. The quarterback can get him the ball. So we really have a challenge."

The ex-Packer has not stuffed the stat sheet - he is on the same statistical pace as he was in 2013. But he has come on recently with eight catches for 142 yards over the last two games combined. He has not scored, however, since Week 1.


Torrey Smith leads NFL in drawing interference flags
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:39 pm ET) Ravens receiver Torrey Smith has drawn five pass interference penalties, most in the NFL, notes ESPN.com. Smith also led the league in 2012 when he drew 16 such flags.

"If [pass interference] counted as points, we probably would have won by 100," Smith said of the Week 4 win over Carolina. "It happens every game, which is frustrating for me individually, but it's great that we continue to move the ball."

The interference flags Smith has drawn this year have led to 98 yards. He has eight catches for 138 yards and a touchdown.


Shonn Greene on the outs
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1:37 pm ET) In my recap of everything that stood out to me in Week 4, I had a simple take on Titans running back Shonn Greene:

Forget about him.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt paraphrased Wednesday, saying rookie running back Bishop Sankey would get more playing time beginning Week 5 against Cleveland and pointed out that he's already started to, playing more than 40 percent of the team's snaps the last two weeks. By comparison, Greene has played barely 20 percent.

Greene did play 41 percent of the snaps way back in Week 1, when he had 15 carries for 71 yards at Kansas City, but with Whisenhunt only promising more for Sankey, it's safe to say Green is being phased out.

Even against the Browns, whether or not to sit him shouldn't even be in question. In 12-team leagues, I consider him to be a waste of a roster spot.


Patriots reinstate Brandon Browner, Brian Tyms
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:32 pm ET) The Patriots reinstated cornerback Brandon Browner and receiver Brian Tyms after they completed their four-game suspensions. They're eligible to play Sunday night against the Bengals, but coach Bill Belichick said he's not sure of their immediate roles.

"Those two players have missed four weeks, four games, but all the practice time as well," Belichick told MassLive.com. "We'll have to see where they are relative to the other players."

The website expects Browner to compete for a starting job opposite Darrelle Revis.


Bishop Sankey's time to shine?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1:25 pm ET) Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said the words Fantasy owners were hoping to hear Wednesday: Rookie running back Bishop Sankey will get more playing time Week 5 against Cleveland.

He's been trending that way anyway. As Whisenhunt pointed out, Sankey played a season-high 46 percent of the team's snaps in Week 4, well more than 13 and 8 percent he played in Weeks 1 and 2, respectively. By comparison, Shonn Greene played only 23 percent of the team's snaps at Indianapolis.

The question is will Sankey be able to do anything with those snaps? His touchdown saved him last week; he had only six carries for 34 yards. This week's game shouldn't be nearly as one-sided, though. The Browns, unlike the Colts, aren't in the running for best team in the league. They also rank just 18th against the run, allowing 111.3 yards per game.

With the promise of more playing time, an average of 5.9 yards per carry over the last two weeks and what's at least an OK matchup, I'm not so opposed to starting Sankey this week. I'd rather take a wait-and-see approach with him, but if you're in desperate times, he's your desperate measure.


Report: Lions work out RBs Tashard Choice, Alex Green
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:24 pm ET) The Lions have worked out veteran running backs Tashard Choice and Alex Green, according to ESPN.

Choice has played for four teams in six seasons and has rushed for 1,579 yards on 373 carries for a 4.2 YPC average. Green has appeared in 29 games over three seasons with Green Bay and the New York Jets and has run for 510 yards on 149 carries for a 3.4 YPC mark.


Time share, touch matchup, makes Bills' backs tough to rely on
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1:20 pm ET) Through four games, both C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson rank in the top-22 among running backs in Fantasy scoring, as the Bills' timeshare has worked out nicely for both players. However, they might not find much success in Week 5, with the tough Lions defense on the way.

The Lions have done a solid job against opposing running backs, limiting them to just 3.4 yards per carry. They rank 10th in Fantasy points allowed, at 14.0 per game, which won't leave much for Spiller and Jackson to share. No running back tandem has seen both players reach double figures against the Lions either, though the Jets came close, thanks to Chris Johnson's late touchdown run in Week 4.

The Lions have been one of the best teams against the run over the last few years, so we shouldn't be surprised that they have maintained that through the quarter mark of the season. With so few teams on bye, you should have better options, so steer clear of this backfield tandem for Week 5.
