Week 2 Fantasy Trade Value Chart

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

Our Trade Value Chart is designed to assist you in making fair trades in your standard-scoring or PPR leagues. The values assigned are a long-term measurement of their Fantasy value. By adding two players' values you could determine which single player you might be able to get in return. This should also work as a "Rest of Season" Rankings.

There were a lot of amazing performances by the Broncos in the first game of Week 1. Wes Welker proved he could still be a reliable receiver, as did Demaryius Thomas. Peyton Manning's seven touchdown performance also was one for the ages. But it might have been the unknown at tight end that scored the Broncos' first touchdown that drew the most interest from Fantasy owners.

So what is the going rate for a third-year tight end that most people either took with a late pick or completely overlooked on Draft Day?

Julius Thomas sets up to be one of the best waiver bargains and potential trade pieces Fantasy owners can cash in this week. After scoring twice and pasting the Ravens for 110 yards on five catches, it's safe to say he's probably not going to keep up this kind of production. So it makes sense to sell high.

It also makes sense to be interested in acquiring him. Not everyone landed an athletic tight end with a great quarterback on Draft Day. Thomas, at least for now, looks the part of a difference maker with good potential from week to week. Not 110-yard and two-score potential but at least six or seven points per. Plenty of teams in every league have a need at tight end and could offer something good for him.

Whether you need him or not, pick him up off waivers if you can. Deal him if you don't need him. Some people already have -- here's a sampling of actual trades involving Thomas in CBSSports.com leagues:

Julius Thomas and Matt Forte for Ray Rice and Pierre Garcon: This looks like highway robbery for the owner getting Rice and Garcon. There isn't much of a downgrade at running back but I'd feel safer going with Garcon every week than Thomas.

Julius Thomas for Larry Fitzgerald: Insane. Thomas is good but Fitzgerald is as established as they come. If some goofball in your league is willing to give up Fitzy for Thomas, make that deal in 0.01 seconds.

Julius Thomas for Torrey Smith: For who these guys are right now, this is a fair deal. Smith didn't have a brilliant Week 1 but has plenty of upside as the top dog in the Ravens passing game. Thomas did have a great Week 1 but doesn't have the long-term potential -- or it least it seems that way right now. For owners looking for a win-win deal, this works.

Julius Thomas and Tavon Austin for Roddy White: This is an interesting one considering White's injury status. The Falcons receiver came out and said it would take him a while to be back in his usual form. That dashes his value for the time being, but most believe White will eventually heal up and be great. Those desperate for wins (and maybe a tight end) could pawn off White for Thomas and another receiver just as quickly as owners who had Thomas as a backup could upgrade at wideout. The trade's close in value but it works.

Raiders move Taiwan Jones to running back
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7:14 pm ET) After spending the last two seasons as a cornerback, the Raiders will move Taiwan Jones back to running back this season, reports CSNBayArea.com.

Jones was drafted in 2011 as a running back out of Eastern Washington. He has been playing in the defensive back field since the 2013 season. Jones missed 15 games last season with a foot injury.


Raiders' Del Rio on Michael Crabtree: Good to have him on team
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6:27 pm ET) Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said he is pleased the team was recently able to add veteran wide receiver Michael Crabtree, reports CSNBayArea.com.

"It's great to have Michael on board," Del Rio said. "Obviously, he's a guy that's been a productive player on a real good team the last several years and comes in here eager to join our organization and become a good teammate and to find his way and create a role for himself. So, he's a guy that has an outstanding catching radius, a real good understanding of how to get himself open and find some of the soft spots in a defense. He knows how to go up and make the contested catch and those kinds of things. We feel good about being able to acquire Michael."

Crabtree is trying to rebound after a disappointing 2014 season where he caught 68 passes for 698 yards and four touchdowns.

Attorney: Greg Hardy seeks to have domestic charges expunged
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5:34 pm ET) Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy has filed a petition to have domestic violence charges expunged from the record, according to his attorney per the Charlotte Observer.

The process to have the charges removed could take up to four months.

"Every day Americans who have misdemeanor charges dismissed file for expungement of the charges from their record," said Chris Fialko, Hardy's attorney.

Hardy has the charges against him dismissed in February after his accuser and ex-girlfriend Nicole Holder was unable to testify in a jury trial. Holder received a settlement from Hardy in an undisclosed amount, according to prosecutors.


Stephen Jones: Cowboys' Tony Romo will have big year
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4:50 pm ET) Cowboys chief operating officer Stephen Jones is optimistic about his team's quarterback for the upcoming season. 

In an appearance on Dallas' KRLD-FM radio, Jones predicted that Tony Romo will have a career year. 

"No question in my mind," Jones said. "I think he keeps getting better. I actually had a visit with him ... and he said he's felt as good as he has felt in years, in terms of his off-season and how his body feels and the work that he's doing. The last couple of years he has been dealing with off-season surgeries and some uncomfortable things. But he said he thinks he's ready to have the best year he's ever had."

Jerrell Freeman skipping Colts' voluntary workouts
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3:29 pm ET) Colts linebacker Jerrell Freeman was a no-show at the team's offseason workouts that started on Monday.

Freeman is a restricted free agent and still hasn't signed his offer from the team, per the Indy Star. The Colts offered a one-year $2.35 million deal that would require a second-round pick as compensation from any team that signs Freeman. 

Freeman has until Friday to get an offer from another team. The Colts workouts are voluntary, so there will be no penalty for Freeman missing them.


Browns players didn't know Josh Gordon wasn't allowed to drink
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3:23 pm ET) Cornerback Joe Haden said that Browns players didn't know that WR Josh Gordon wasn't allowed to drink alcohol.

Gordon's return to the NFL was under the condition that he stay away from alcohol. 

Gordon, Haden and several teammates flew to Las Vegas on a private plane following the regular season. Gordon had several drinks on the flight and was tested by the NFL when the plane landed and was subsequently suspended for the 2015 season

"If I knew he couldn't have a drink, everybody would have tried to ... you know what I'm saying ... it wouldn't have been that," Haden said following Tuesday's OTA, per ESPN. "Josh Gordon, he's a grown man and sometimes you got to know what decisions you make."

Gordon has said he thought the alcohol ban expired at the end of the season. Haden went on to say that he thought the ban was unfair.
