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.

Report: Texans RB Arian Foster could miss first eight games of 2015
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2015) Texans running back Arian Foster is expected to miss the first eight games of the season because of a 'major' groin injury, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Foster suffered the groin injury during Monday's practice and hobbled off the field during a play. The injury, which may require surgery, could land him on the PUP list to begin the season. Foster dealt with multiple injuries in 2014, including a groin injury that forced him to miss two games.

The veteran ran for 1,246 yards and eight touchdowns in 2014 with 327 receiving yards and five receiving touchdowns. 


Eagles RB DeMarco Murray sidelined by hydration issue
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2015) Eagles running back DeMarco Murray was forced to miss the first day of team drills on Sunday because of poor hydration levels, coach Chip Kelly said per the Philadelphia Inquirer.

"We did a hydration status test and he was a little bit high and obviously when you see guys that are high from a hydration standpoint, then you kind of pull them back a little bit because that's when they are susceptible for an injury," Kelly said.

"He's probably the most conditioned athlete on our team, but if you don't drink the requisite amount of water and electrolytes and have them in your system, it doesn't matter how fit you are," Kelly said of Murray. "Especially the weather - that was a big factor for us, too. We have had back-to-back, and going into three, 90-degree days. . . .You don't want to lose a guy in the first day."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2015) 49ers wide receiver Bruce Ellington will be held out of the next few practices because of a strained left leg, reports the Bay Area News Group. Ellington sustained the injury during Monday's practice.

"I'm holding him [out]," coach Jim Tomsula said. "I want to make sure we're good there."

Meanwhile, offensive lineman Ben Gottschalk underwent a foot procedure and is out indefinitely.


Rams DE Chris Long returns to practice
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2015) Rams defensive end Chris Long was able to practice on Tuesday after missing the first three days with a back issue, according to The St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The veteran is expected to anchor a strong defensive line this year after playing just six games last season because of an injury. Long 51 1/2 career sacks in seven seasons in St. Louis.


49ers' Alex Boone shifting from right guard to left
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2015) 49ers offensive lineman Alex Boone is expected to switch from right guard to left guard for the upcoming season, the veteran said per ESPN.com. He will replace three-time Pro Bowler Mike Iupati at the position.

"It's great," Boone said. "It's different, obviously, [after] playing next to Anthony [Davis] all those years, now you move over play next to Joe [Staley]. Both great tackles. Footwork's a little diferent, handwork is a little different, but at the end of the day it’s come along real well."


Report: RB Pierre Thomas to visit Texans
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2015) The Texans could be in the market for a running back now that Arian Foster could be dealing with an injury. Veteran free agent Pierre Thomas is reportedly going to visit with Houston, according to NFL Network. 

He is expected to workout for the team on Wednesday. Thomas spent his entire career in New Orleans where he ran for 3,745 yards and 28 touchdowns in eight seasons. 


Cowboys 'like the fight' in cornerback Tyler Patmon
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2015) Cowboys cornerback Tyler Patmon made news over the weekend when he got into a skirmish with star wide receiver Dez Bryant running the down the field. For the second-year player, it showed his tenacity and desire to play the game, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

"Well, Patmon is a great story for our team," coach Jason Garrett said. "He came to the rookie mimicamp as an undrafted, unsigned tryout guy. For him to do what he did over the course of those three days his first year to show us that, 'hey, he's one of the better guys. I don't care who we drafted or who we signed we need to make sure that he's one of the guys that has a chance to make our football team.'

"So what he is all about was demonstrated right from the start. He's a guy that's all about what he does. It doesn't really matter where he comes from and what has happened to him and other people in the past. He wants to show you what he's all about by what he does each and every day. And I think he’s done that since he's been here. He's a competitor. He's a fighter. He's an instinctive player. He loves to play the game. I think he’s gotten better and better."

Patmon is fighting for a roster spot and the fourth cornerback position on the team. 


Jets DE Muhammad Wilkerson misses practice on Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2015) Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson was unable to practice on Tuesday while dealing with a sore hamstring, according to ESPN.com.

Wilkerson left Sunday's practice while dealing with the injury and is being held out as a precaution. 

"He’s feeling OK, [the hamstring is] tight," Jets coach Todd Bowles said. "It’s day to day -- we’re gonna err on the side of caution."


Lions negotiating to re-sign Haloti Ngata, DeAndre Levy
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2015) The Lions are making a big push to re-sign defensive tackle Haloti Ngata and linebacker DeAndre Levy, according to The Detroit News. General manager Martin Mayhew said the team is in discussions with both player's agents on new deals. 

"[Levy's] a heck of a football player, just a playmaker on our defense," Mayhew said before training camp Tuesday. "Versus the run and the pass, the guy's an impact player, so we definitely want to keep him on our defense — very important to our football team. His leadership is also excellent, professional in every sense of the word, so he has a lot of value to us. And he's one of our own guys, so we want to definitely keep him around."

Ngata is entering his first season with the Lions after being traded from Baltimore in March.

"He's a phenomenal player," Mayhew said. "He can be an impact player for us as well along the defensive line. I don't really need to see a whole lot more. … I've seen enough to know that I want to have him around."
