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.

C.J. Spiller jokes he's at '28 percent'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/22/2014) Bills running back C.J. Spiller told the media Tuesday that he feels "28 percent" following the nagging injuries he had last season. What Spiller meant is that he's feeling good and ready for the offseason workouts, saying all of the injury is "all behind me."

"I feel good. Did a lot of things in this offseason to try to see where I was at and it responded well," Spiller said. "I will continue to do what I need to do to make sure I'm ready to go come September, but for the most part I feel pretty good. ...  I'm ready to get back on the field and really start playing again."

Spiller said he's not concerned about his contract status and is more focused on being ready for camp. Spiller is entering a contract year in 2014.

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/22/2014) Bears defensive end-turned-linebacker Shea McClellin has lost 11 pounds while working with well known trainer Scot Prohaska in California this offseason. He's shed eight percent of body fat and has cut down his 40-yard dash time from 4.74 to 4.5 seconds. 

"I think you're going to see a guy that consistently makes plays when he's in there to a point where you say, 'Wow, he's there. He's making plays, doing his job and showing a few flashes of spectacular,'" Prohaska told the Chicago Tribune. "Most of all you're going to see a real consistent guy that does his job. You're going to really enjoy the way he plays the game now because he's going to play it with confidence."


Stroke forced linebacker Russell Allen to retire
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/22/2014) Former Jaguars linebacker Russell Allen said he suffered a stroke in Week 15 of last season that forced him to retire.

Allen told Sports Illustrated that he collided with a Bills offensive lineman and begin to suffer some concussion-like symptoms such as seeing double. The next day MRI results concluded that he needed extensive testing. After three days of tests, doctors said that part of his brain had become inactive and that he'd be on blood-thinning medication for the rest of his life. 

Allen has been invited to return to the Jaguars and help the team off the field. He plans on coaching high school football in California.

Eli Manning still in boot but says he'll be ready for camp
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/22/2014) Eli Manning showed up at Giants camp Tuesday with his left foot in a walking boot following offseason ankle surgery. While he claimed he did not hurt it playing basketball Manning did make clear that he plans to be a participant at training camp, telling the Newark Star-Ledger that "it will be safe to say I'll be 100 percent." 

Teammate Victor Cruz went to Duke with Manning for some unofficial passing workouts and said he couldn't tell his ankle was a problem. Manning is expected to miss all of the Giants' offseason workouts and minicamps, which means he'll be behind in learning and understanding the team's new offense, though Manning already surmises that it will be a lot like what the Packers have been running.

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/22/2014) Giants left tackle Will Beatty claimed he's "past the doctor's expectations" in rehab but isn't sure if he'll be ready for the season opener, the New York Daily News reported. Beatty broke his leg in Week 17 of last season and turned 29 this past March. 

Falcons will keep Julio Jones limited in workouts
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/22/2014) Falcons coach Mike Smith said Tuesday that Julio Jones will be limited during offseason workouts. He's still working his way back from foot surgery and is "progressing well" but the Falcons are aiming for him to be ready for the start of the season and don't want to risk anything going wrong during the offseason. 

"Julio is participating with our athletic performance department," Smith said according to ESPN. "He will be able to get out on the field and do some walkthrough stuff with us when we start going. Our focus on Julio is one thing, and that's having him prepared for our opener. ... We're not going to do anything to hinder his timeframe in terms of getting back to work with us."

Jones was on pace for 130 catches and just under 1,900 receiving yards when he fractured his foot last season.
