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.

Marshawn Lynch retools current contract, receives higher base salary
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) The week-long holdout worked to a certain extent for Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch. The 28-year-old restructured his current contract with the Seahawks, which will give him $6 million guaranteed this season, per Pro Football Talk.

Lynch will make a $5 million base salary in 2014, with a possible $500,000 roster bonus and another $500,000 bonus if he reaches 1,500-plus rushing yards. He totaled over 1,500 yards of offense with 14 total touchdowns last year but had over 400 total touches between the regular season and postseason.

DeMarcus Ware back at practice
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Mike Wallace might not be ready for preseason opener
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace missed a second straight day of practice with a sore hamstring and won't play in Saturday's scrimmage at Sun Life Stadium, reports the Miami Herald. His status for the Aug. 8 preseason opener against the Falcons is uncertain.

The paper said the injury is not serious, but "obviously slows the growth of Wallace's and quarterback Ryan Tannehill's ability to team up on dynamic long passes."


Bills going to 'feed' Sammy Watkins
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins "may not be the savior they hope he will be in Buffalo, but this team is going to feed him the ball and they are gambling he can make a quarterback out of EJ Manuel," reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. "I’m not sure that will be the case, but a rookie of the year performance from Watkins wouldn’t shock me either."

La Canfora listed Watkins first among his 10 breakout players.

Geno Smith gets every first-team rep
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Jets quarterback Geno Smith took all 16 of the first-team reps Thursday, while Michael Vick got none, reports the New York Post. Until Thursday, Smith has been getting about 75 percent of the first-team snaps.

"I told [offensive coordinator] Marty (Mornhinweg) and Marty knows I understand that look, we have a certain mission to accomplish and we’ve got to get things going, we’ve got to get on the right track and I understand that. I won’t stand in the way of that," Vick told the paper.


Chiefs add Steve Gregory
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) On the same day safety Eric Berry suffered an ankle injury, the Chiefs signed veteran safety Steve Gregory. Gregory played in 26 games and started 23 for the Patriots the past two seasons, registering 116 tackles, four interceptions and two forced fumbles.

Eric Berry sustains ankle injury
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Chiefs safety Eric Berry left Thursday's practice with an ankle injury, reports the Associated Press. Coach Andy Reid said Berry, who was carted off, has a sore ankle, "not an Achilles tear or any of that, but they’re evaluating him. They’re just seeing what it is."

Seahawks tweak roster
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
