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.

Report: Chargers hold workout for Austin Pettis
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) The Chargers held a workout for former Rams wideout Austin Pettis, according to ESPN.

Pettis was cut by St. Louis in October, and hasn't hooked on with a team just yet. The Chargers are dealing with a number of injuries at the receiver position, and are looking to sign Pettis as depth. Pettis caught 12 passes for 118 yards and a touchdown before he was cut. 


Report: Chargers punter Mike Scifres could end up on IR
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) Chargers punter Mike Scifres could wind up going on injured-reserve, according to FoxSports.

Scifres is progressing from a shoulder injury, but the team is pressed for roster spots. Scifres has already missed two games due to the injury, and was ruled out of for the team's regular season finale. The Chargers need to add a center to the active roster, and Scifres could be in danger of losing his spot so the team can add another lineman. 


Saints' Marques Colston reflects on down year
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) Saints wideout Marques Colston reflected on his less than stellar season on Friday, according to the New Orleans Advocate.

Colston, who rarely gives interviews, expressed his frustrations with the season. He's currently on pace to register his second-lowest yardage total in his nine seasons, and needs one touchdown in order to avoid setting a career-low in the category. Colston admitted the struggles got to him during the year. "It’s not a secret I didn’t play up to my own standards," he said. "I’ve got to live with that." He added, "I pride myself on trying to be part of the solution. Instead this year, I feel like I was part of the problem at times."

Colston did not want to address his future in New Orleans, instead opting to look forward to the team's final game this Sunday.


Marshawn Lynch among Seahawks' probables
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is listed as probable for Week 17 against the Rams.

Lynch was listed on the injury report with a back injury, but has been able to battle through the issue all season. He did not practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but was able to put in a full practice on Friday.

The team should also have Tony Moeaki and Russell Okung. Both players were listed as probable on the final injury report. 

Cooper Helfet, Chris Matthews, Tharold Simon and Max Unger are listed as questionable, and will be game-time decisions. 

Both Demarcus Dobbs and Jermaine Kearse have already been ruled out for the contest. 


Report: Saints' Jimmy Graham to have MRI on shoulder
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham will have an MRI on his shoulder next week, according to the New Orleans Advocate

Graham initially injured his shoulder back in Week 5, but has been able to play through the injury all season. While his touchdown total has remained solid, Graham's yardage is down this year. It's possible he's more injured than he's let on all season, and the injury is serious enough that the team will send him for the MRI. Once the team has a diagnosis, Graham will evaluate with team doctors.


Rams list Scott Wells, Janoris Jenkins as probable, E.J. Gaines doubtful
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) The Rams have listed center Scott Wells (back) and cornerback Janoris Jenkins (back) as probable for Sunday's game against the Seahawks after both were able to participate fully in practice Friday.

Cornerback E.J. Gaines, who is dealing with a concussion, is considered doubtful for the game. If he is unable to go, rookie Lamarcus Joyner or Marcus Roberson could see an uptick in playing time.

The Rams 12 1/2-point underdogs against the Seahawks Sunday.


Cardinals list four as questionable for Sunday against San Francisco
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) With quarterback Drew Stanton (knee) already declared out, the Cardinals listed four players as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers including Deone Bucannon (knee), John Carlson (calf), Johnathan Cooper (wrist) and Dan Williams (foot).

Linebacker Larry Foote is also listeed as doubtful for the game with a knee injury. Foote has not missed a game this season, totaling 84 tackles and two sacks.

The Cardinals have also listed the following players as probable: Lorenzo Alexander (knee), Jaron Brown (toe), Calais Campbell (hip), Larry Fitzgerald (knee), Rashad Johnson (ankle), Ted Larsen (shoulder), Tyrann Mathieu (thumb) and Matt Shaughnessy (shoulder).


49ers rule out three for Sunday against the Cardinals
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) The 49ers have deemed running back Carlos Hyde (ankle), wide receiver Steve Johnson (knee) and safety Eric Reid (concussion) as out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

It is the second straight game out for both Hyde and Johnson. Hyde finishes his rooke season with 83 carries for 333 yards and four touchdowns while Johnson had 35 catches for 435 yards and three touchdowns this year.

Wide receiever Bruce Ellington (hamstring), cornerbacks Tramaine Brock (hamstring) and Perrish Cox (shoulder) and linebacker Ahmad Brooks (thumb) are all listed as questionable.

Michael Crabtree (knee), Chris Culliver (knee), Brandon Lloyd (groin), Marcus Martin (illness) and Justin Smith (back) are all listed as probable.

The 49ers are currently 6 1/2-point favorites against Arizona Sunday.


Lions' Dominic Raiola loses appeal, remains suspended for Week 17
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) Lions center Dominic Raiola's one-game suspension was upheld by the league following his appeal. Raiola received the one-game suspension earlier in the week after stomping on the leg on Bears defensive lineman Ego Ferguson in Week 16.

The Lions are currently 7 1/2-point underdogs on the road against the Packers in Week 17.


Raiders list seven player on Week 17 injury report
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) The Raiders listed seven players on its final injury report for Week 17 against Denver. Wide receiver Vincent Brown (groin), cornerback Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring), and wide receiver Denarius Moore (knee, ankle) were ruled out for for Sunday. Cornerback T.J. Carrie (ankle), linebacker Khalil Mack (hamstring) and tackle Menelik Watson (foot, ankle) were labeled questionable.

Meanwhile, defensive back Ras-I Dowling (hamstring) got the green light after being a limited participant all week. He was deemed probable for the final game of the season.
