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.

Fred Jackson exits practice with lower leg injury
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) Bills running back Fred Jackson was escorted to the locker room with team trainers after sustaining a lower leg injury during Friday's training camp practice, WGR50 in Buffalo reports. Jackson totaled 1,283 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns last season while playing 663 snaps last season. The Bills will open preseason Aug. 3 against the Giants.

Report: Vick Ballard suffers torn Achilles in training camp
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2014) Colts running back Vick Ballard has been diagnosed with a torn Achilles, ESPN.com reports Friday.

Ballard went down with the injury at training camp Friday, and had to be carted off the field. He likely will not see the field again this season, as this has the potential to be a season-ending injury.

Ballard suffered a season-ending ACL injury last season, after appearing in just one game. 


David Wilson takes a hit, feels good
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Giants running back David Wilson "definitely" feels ready for football after taking a hit from linebacker Cooper Taylor in training camp practice on Friday. Wilson has come all the way back from a neck injury that halted his 2013 season. 

"That felt good," Wilson said to the New York Daily News. "I definitely know I'm cleared now."


Cordarrelle Patterson sits out as precaution
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson did not practice Friday because of a "tweaked foot," reports the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

He was sitting out as a precaution, and the injury is not expected to be serious.


Carl Nicks, Bucs part ways
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Carl Nicks and the Buccaneers have agreed to an "amicable" injury settlement, ending the guard's tenure with the team, FOX Sports reports. Nicks developed turf toe two years ago and it ended up becoming a complicated problem that forced him to miss all but two games of the 2013 season. 

Nicks said in a statement that he's going to "step away from the game." 


Report: Lynch's holdout won't last long
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Marshawn Lynch's holdout from Seahawks training camp will "probably" last five or six days at the most says ESPN's John Clayton, who figures the running back will balk once he realizes he won't get any new money added on to his deal. Lynch has held out through the very early days of camp because he wants a new deal just two years after signing his current contract. 

Chiefs to keep feeding Jamaal Charles
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) The Chiefs don't plan to lighten the workload for running back Jamaal Charles this season, reports ESPN.

"I think he's got a lot in the tank," coach Andy Reid said. “We're going to keep using him. He's a good football player and he enjoys playing the game, so we'll keep getting him the football." 


Jeremy Maclin headed for big year
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin, who is coming back from last year's torn ACL, is expected to be the No. 1 option in the passing game with DeSean Jackson now gone, reports Comcast Sports Net.

And if that's the case, Maclin could post the best stats of his career. His best season to date was 70 catches for 964 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2010.

"As far as numbers and everything, I've never really got into numbers," Maclin said. "But if they plan on me being a big part of this offense like I think they are, I think the numbers will come. I'm not going to get wrapped up in all that. That’s how I'm going to approach the season."


Rob Gronkowski not yet 100 percent
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski said Friday he plans to make a fearless return to the field this season and put a string of injuries behind him, reports WEEI in Boston. Gronkowski is coming back from a torn ACL in 2013.

As for being at full strength, Gronkowski cautioned that there is still plenty of work remaining before that hurdle is cleared.

"If it were 100 percent, I'd be doing every single thing so no, I'm not 100 percent right now, obviously not," Gronkowski said. "I'm working my way to get to that and I'm working every single day to get to that and improving every single day. I'm preparing myself to my max ability right now for the first regular game. I can't really say anything from here on out because it's far away. Every single day, I'm just giving it everything I've got in the rehab room and out here on the field. I'm preparing myself and listening to my trainers, what they have for me so that I'm ready to go when it comes down to it. Hopefully, I am.

"No timetable at all. Just keep improving every single day and we'll see what the trainers want me to do. They've been through plenty of knee injuries throughout their years here."


Handful of Colts sit out practice
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) In addition to Trent Richardson missing practice on Friday, the Colts have safety LaRon Landry, cornerback Vontae Davis and rookie guard Jack Mewhort all sitting out according to the Indianapolis Star. Landry and Davis' situations have been deemed precautionary.
