Week 6 Fantasy Trade Value Chart

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

Is one game against a sub par opponent enough to sell high on a player? In the case of Justin Blackmon, you bet your behind it is!

Blackmon re-emerged following a four-game suspension, playing well against a depleted Rams defense to the tune of 136 yards on five catches, including a 67-yard touchdown snare. His physical play combined with the likelihood that Jacksonville will play from behind most weeks should lock up his chances of being an effective receiver for Fantasy Football. It even helps him that Chad Henne will be his quarterback for the time being. Henne is a far more aggressive passer than Blaine Gabbert and is not afraid to look for Blackmon on intermediate and deep routes (as exhibited on his first completion at St. Louis last week). Plus we'd be doing you a disservice if we didn't remind you of just how good Blackmon was last year with Henne (38 catches for 615 yards and four scores in effectively seven games).

The Jags' next few opponents are ... well, it doesn't matter. They're going to be trailing. But it does help that with games against Kansas City and Seattle in the rearview mirror, only a matchup at San Francisco provides a major defensive challenge. Point is, Blackmon needs to average 78.5 yards per game in his remaining 11 to hit 1,000 yards on the year. Considering he averaged nearly 10 yards more than that per game with Henne as a rookie, I like his chances.

The owners who drafted Blackmon had him ride the pine for four weeks. If they have a good record, it's happened without his impact. Maybe they don't need him and you can swing a deal for him. Or, if you're the team that has Blackmon and you're at or near the top of your standings, you can move him to get better elsewhere on the roster. It goes without saying that any team that is 2-3 or worse and needs a productive receiver should seek out Blackmon.

Here are some actual trades involving Blackmon in CBSSports.com leagues:

Justin Blackmon and Julian Edelman for Doug Martin: It's not enough for Martin in a standard league but it works in a PPR. I's also the kind of deal someone sick of D-Mart would make.

Justin Blackmon for Brandon Marshall: Not even close. I'll admit Marshall's been stuck in a rut because defenses have started to tilt coverage heavily his way, but the Bears have proven that Alshon Jeffery will make defenses pay for doing so. I suspect Marshall will have some really good weeks, beginning on Thursday. I'd rather have him than Blackmon.

Justin Blackmon and DeSean Jackson for Wes Welker: I love Welker and consider him a must-start, but even I would drop him in a heartbeat for this pair of receivers. It's too much to pay for Welker, even if he's been a great receiver most weeks. So has DeSean!

Justin Blackmon for Philip Rivers: I think this is the perfect kind of move for an owner who needs to improve at quarterback while shedding depth at receiver. Rivers is more productive than Blackmon in Fantasy but plays at a deep position, whereas quality receivers are a little harder to secure.

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

Chargers OLB Melvin Ingram sheds 20 pounds
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(12:50 am ET) Chargers outside linebacker Melvin Ingram is sporting a different body these days.

During the offseason, Ingram changed his eating habits and dropped 20 pounds — going from 266 to 246. Ingram stopped eating beef and pork, electing to consume chicken, fish, vegetables, fruit and rice. He's no longer eating breads, pastas or potatoes either. 

"Being at 260 or 265, 266, wasn't working, really," Ingram told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "I felt quick but I kept getting injured. You've got to nitpick at your own body, your own self, your own game. ... I felt like playing lighter would be a better thing for me. The lighter you are, the less stress it is on your body, the less stress it is on your knees, your hips, your joints or your ankles, your toes — everything."

Ingram now only has a body fat of eight percent and underwent a new training program while away in Miami. Now, Ingram said he feels ready to show what he can do on the football field this season. 

"I feel it's going to be a whole different explosion, a whole different Melvin," Ingram said. "I feel like that 260-Melvin is gone."


Report: Tom Brady appeal won't be heard by Wednesday
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's appeal won't be heard by Wednesday, the Associated Press reported, citing sources. 

Brady is appealing his four-game suspension as a result of the investigation into deflated footballs prior to the AFC Championship Game. 

The NFL collective bargaining agreement requires appeals to be heard within 10 days, a window that expires on Wednesday. As of Monday, no hearing had been scheduled. 

Appeals can be heard after the 10-day window, if the league and players union agree to extend the deadline, which is likely to occur in the Brady case. 


Falcons could be without Beasley, Reed when OTAs start
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) The Falcons could be without two key components of their defense when OTAs start this week.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter, first-round pick Vic Beasley and free-agent signee Brooks Reed may not be present when voluntary practices kick off.

Beasley has yet to sign his rookie contract, which could keep him away from the team's facility. Reed is dealing with a groin injury that could keep off of the practice field.

Reed's absence is understandable due to to it being an injury. Beasley, however, is a different issue since there is little to negotiate due to the rookie wage scale. 

The remaining draft picks the Falcons selected have signed.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/25/2015) Chargers safety Eric Weddle is not expected to attend Tuesday's start of offseason training activities as he and the team remain far apart on talks for a contract extension, per NFL.com.

While attendance is voluntary, Weddle's absence could mark the start of a long stalemate between the parties.

Report: Vikings' Adrian Peterson won't attend OTAs on Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Giants' Bennett Jackson making transition to safety
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Giants second-year cornerback Bennett Jackson is spending the offseason transitioning to safety. 

"At the end of the day, I’m a DB,’" Jackson said, per the New York Post. "I think my strengths are cover skills, I got good speed and I got good ball skills. The thing it’s gonna take for me to get out there and make an impact is, I just got to learn the defense and really just communicate the calls fluently."

"It is all in front of him," coach Tom Coughlin said. "We think he can cover. He has done a good job of getting us lined up and then we will see how he plays."
