Week 3 Fantasy Trade Value Chart

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

You have to give credit where it's due: Michael Vick has been incredible in Chip Kelly's fast-break offense. Through two weeks he's posted 631 passing yards, 77 rushing yards and six total touchdowns with only one turnover. He's completed over 62 percent of his passes and -- I hate this stat but it has merit -- has a QB rating over 110.0 per game. Vick has never posted back-to-back games with a QB rating that high in his career.

So it's clear the offense agrees with him and he's back to Fantasy dynamo status. But it's also clear that he's an injury risk. He came up gimpy after being tossed around at Washington in Week 1, then was assisted off the field vs. the Chargers in Week 2 when the back of his head bounced off the ground (he returned for the next drive).

For most, Vick was taken along with another quarterback on Draft Day with the intention of either being a backup for a shaky starter or being a piece of a blockbuster trade. If you have a very good alternative at quarterback, now might be the time to get maximum value on Vick in a trade before he gets helped off the field and doesn't return.

But who would want him? Well, the Fantasy owners of Cam Newton and Russell Wilson could be interested. Newton hasn't looked great and certainly hasn't run as much as we believed. Wilson has his Seahawks to a 2-0 start but he himself is ranked 24th among passers in standard-scoring leagues. Tom Brady's off to a slow start too but his Fantasy owners might be too patient (or is it too stubborn?) to let him go. The owners of these players are who you target with Vick if you can afford to part ways with him.

One other problem with moving Vick: You can't expect a king's ransom. That's because there are so many quarterbacks worth starting from week to week. They might not put up the massive amount of points Vick has produced but most people are willing to be economical at quarterback and "settle" for 20 to 25 Fantasy points per week instead of ponying up for the 33.0 Fantasy points per week Vick has averaged so far. Also, it's not exactly a secret that Vick is injury prone -- people you talk to will know this and will not pay full price for a player they could be without for some time.

Here's a sampling of actual trades involving Vick in CBSSports.com leagues:

Michael Vick for Tom Brady: I'd guess in this swap one owner is going for the gusto by trading for Vick while another thinks he's being shrewd in acquiring Brady. It's not like Brady's played like garbage -- his receiving corps has been decimated. It won't always be that way for Brady, nor will he always play difficult defenses like he did in Week 2. I like the Brady side better.

Michael Vick and David Wilson for Jimmy Graham and Josh Freeman: In this deal chances are the guy justified overpaying for Graham by giving up Vick because he had a stud quarterback ahead of him (someone like Peyton Manning or Aaron Rodgers) and thus didn't "need" Vick.

This is an important tip for those trading for Vick: If your rival owner has Vick on the bench, don't overpay. Vick's doing him absolutely no good on the bench. And if the rival owner argues that Vick is too good to give up for less than what he expects, suggest an offer for the other stud quarterback on the roster. Remember, the feeling here is that Vick is a ticking time bomb -- the second he gets hurt his value is shattered. It would be a darn shame for the owner benching Vick to get too greedy and not get something for him.

Michael Vick and Steve Smith for Larry Fitzgerald: This is pretty close to fair in a standard league and dead-on in a PPR league. It's the perfect kind of trade -- the owner dealing Vick improves one of his starting spots and the owner getting Vick improves at quarterback while downgrading (but not bottoming out) at receiver.

Michael Vick and Rashard Mendenhall for Jamaal Charles: Another close swap along the lines of the Fitzgerald deal where an owner upgrades at running back while another takes a step back at running back but makes up for it at quarterback.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians: 'It's really (Fitzgerald's) decision'
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(10:33 am ET) Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told reporters Friday he really wants to see wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald back in Arizona next season.

"I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t," Arians said. "We definitely, desperately want him to stay. He knows that. It’s really his decision."

Fitzgerald has a salary cap hit of $23.6 million for 2015 and the team will work to get that number down in the offseason. Team president Michael Bidwill said this week contract talks won't start fully until after the Super Bowl.

"I’m hoping and praying every day that it does happen," Arians said. "I’ve expressed to him personally how much it means to us."

Fitzgerald has not reached 1,000 yards receiving in the past three seasons and totaled 784 in 2014 on 63 catches with two touchdowns.


Seahawks corner Byron Maxwell set to test free agency
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(9:25 am ET) Seahawks cornerback Byron Maxwell is ready to hit the free-agent market during the upcoming offseason and feels the Super Bowl will be his last game in Seattle.

"I’m the prettiest girl at the dance right now," Maxwell said. "But yeah, it’s one of those things I’m excited about it. I would love to be here, but I’m ready to see what’s out there and see how things work out."

Maxwell, who was heavily targeted this year with the Seahawks secondary filled with Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor, grabbed two interceptions and defended 11 passes.

"Coming into the season I already knew teams were going to try me," Maxwell said. "But it was cool. I accept that. That’s more opportunities for me to get the rock and put my name out there."


Report: Titans S Bernard Pollard wants to be released
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:52 am ET) Titans safety Bernard Pollard has requested a release from his contract, The Tennessean reports. He is scheduled to make $3.1 million in the final season of his two-year deal in 2015.

Pollard submitted his request to general manager Ruston Webster at the end of the regular season, per the report. He is recovering from a ruptured Achilles and wants to play in 2015, but said on The Tennessean's Bernard Pollard Show earlier this month that he was unsure of his future with the Titans.

"I am not getting any younger, so I want to win, I really do. I want to win,'' Pollard said. "Looking at how things took place this year, looking at where (the Titans) need to be for next year, that is a tough, tough question, and I don't even know if they can give me the answer. I have one year on my deal, but it is going to take some time."

Pollard has been out of his walking boot for a month and is making progress in rehab. He suffered his Achilles injury in Week 5 and was placed on injured reserve.


Patriots fairly healthy heading into Super Bowl Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2015) The Patriots will be at nearly full strength for Sunday’s Super Bowl as the following players have been listed as probable: Tom Brady (ankle), Dont’a Hightower (shoulder), Chris Jones (elbow), Akeem Ayers (knee), Darrelle Revis (non-injury-related) and Sealver Siliga (foot).

All except Brady were limited participants in practice Friday. The only question mark is center Bryan Stork, who is questionable with a knee injury and was limited in practice Friday.

The Patriots are currently 1-point favorites against Seattle.


Seahawks unveil final injury report in preparation for Super Bowl
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2015) The Seahawks have listed the following players as probable for the Super Bowl on Sunday: J.R. Sweezy (ankle), Justin Britt (knee), Marshawn Lynch (back), Earl Thomas (shoulder), Richard Sherman (elbow) and Kam Chancellor (knee).

Chancellor was a late addition to the injury report, when he fell on the next-to-last play of practice and missed the last play. He was not limping on his way off. All other players were full participants in practice Friday.

The Seahawks are currently 1-point underdogs against New England.


Saints tight end Jimmy Graham to avoid surgery on shoulder
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2015) Saints tight end Jimmy Graham said Friday he will avoid surgery on his shoulder after testing it at the Pro Bowl. 

"I’ve been doing rehab and I’m going to start back on my rehab Monday and really there’s going to be no surgery," Graham told SiriusXM radio. "I’m just going to do rehab, strengthen the area. That’s what’s best — not having to take six months off and try to heal up with a surgery, but now have those six months to work on all things I need to to try and hopefully get to a place like (the Super Bowl) next year."

Graham, who had 85 catches for 889 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2014, fought off the injury for most of the season. He was still unsure about having surgery before the Pro Bowl last week.

"It was something that really needed some rest and unfortunately it wasn’t able to get that during the season," he said. "It happened early and then you have about 10 straight weeks of trying to make it to the game. Now after having about three or four weeks and last week kind of testing it at the Pro Bowl, it feels great."


Vikings' Greg Jennings: We all want Adrian Peterson back
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2015) Vikings veteran wideout Greg Jennings said during a SiriusXM NFL Radio interview on Friday that embattled running back Adrian Peterson is wanted back by everyone in the organization, per ESPN.

"I don't know if he'll be back. I can't answer that question," Jennings said. "But what I do know is that if he does come back, he'd be accepted with open arms. As an organization from the Wilfs on down, we all want him back. So, I mean, it's a touchy subject and he's been the franchise player -- face of that team -- for eight years. So it will be a loss, a huge loss, if we can't get him back, and that's the nature of this business."

In November, Peterson was suspended by the league without pay for the rest of the season, making him ineligible for reinstatement until at least April 15. The move came after Peterson pleaded no contest to recklessly injuring his 4-year-old son last May. He is under contract with the Vikings for next season, and is set to earn $12.75 million.

It's unclear at this point if Jennings has talked to Zygi and Mark Wilf about the Peterson situation. What is clear is that the team is not allowed to communicate with Peterson during his suspension.


Eagles' Maclin believes contract will take care of itself
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2015) Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin believes he will be back in Philadelphia in next season. His representatives and the Eagles are in the process of negotiating a new contract for the 27-year-old, who will become a free agent in March unless he is re-signed.

"I'm excited about what the future holds," Maclin said on Friday. "Once again, both sides have made it known what we want to do. I think it will take care of itself."

He could be franchise tagged if a deal is not signed. The tag number for wide receivers is yet to be determined.

Maclin had 85 catches in 2014 for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns in Philadelphia.


Bears sign LB DeDe Lattimore to two-year contract extension
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2015) The Bears have signed linebacker DeDe Lattimore to a two-year contract extension. He appeared in 10 games as a rookie in 2014, recording five special teams tackles.

Jaguars' Khan 'very optimistic' about WR Blackmon being reinstated
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2015) Jaguars owner Shahid Khan said Friday he is "very optimistic" about wide receiver Justin Blackmon, who missed the 2014 season after being suspended indefinitely for a third violation of the league's substance abuse policy, being reinstated to the NFL.

"I think he's paid his dues and I think he's got his life together," Khan said, per The Florida Times-Union.
