Week 12 Fantasy Trade Value Chart

Senior Fantasy Writer
  •  

It's one thing to make a trade to help your team get better, but when you can pick a player up off waivers and turn him into a piece for your starting lineup, you're winning.

Such is the case for people who swiped Bobby Rainey off waivers last week (or can still land him this week). His big game in Week 11 gave him instant cred in the Fantasy community and owners desperate for help at running back will gravitate toward him in trade.

With scores in each of his last two games, Rainey has displayed good speed, hands and a really impressive ability to follow his blocks to big gains. The Bucs offensive line looks better than it did in the first half of the season and Rainey especially rocked an overmatched Falcons defense for a three-score game. That'll get attention.

Obviously if you need a running back and have Rainey on your roster, then it's a problem solved. But if you've diligently played the waiver wire game and don't need Rainey then you should upgrade at another position using him as a trade piece. While Rainey definitely has fresh legs and enough talent to play at the pro level, matchups against the Lions and Panthers in the next two weeks could make things tough on him before the schedule eases up again. There appears to be some games where he might not quite get three scores and over 160 rush yards.

Here are some legit trades involving Rainey in CBSSports.com leagues:

Bobby Rainey and Ray Rice for Jamaal Charles and Andre Ellington: A lopsided trade for sure -- Rainey and Rice aren't enough in a deal for Charles by himself. The deal is an example of just how overvalued Rainey is by some after five quarters of kicking butt. I'm not so sure we should be convinced Rainey should be treated as a No. 1 rusher after burning through the Dolphins and Falcons.

Bobby Rainey for Julius Thomas: Are you doubting the value of running backs in Fantasy Football? Someone out there though so much of Rainey that they moved a full-fledged stud tight end for him. Now maybe Thomas was one of two tight ends on someone's team and Rainey was the best they could get for him. But it still doesn't seem like enough.

Bobby Rainey for Russell Wilson: Just like the previous trade, an owner fleeced another team for a great player at another position. But this time it's more feasible that a team "gave away" Wilson because he was a backup for them. Remember, at this stage of the game it doesn't necessarily pay to have two great quarterbacks on your team, especially if you can trade one of them for help at another position. That's what I think happened here.

Bobby Rainey and Tony Romo for Pierre Thomas and Matthew Stafford: This one is relatively close to even, though it's not perfect according to the trade chart. But it certainly paints the picture that Rainey has more value than Thomas, even though Thomas has been productive in his last four games. Rainey's workload should consistently be larger.

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.

This is our final Trade Value Chart of the season.

Mayhew: Lions have no intentions of dealing Ndamukong Suh
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:10 am ET) Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said he has no intentions of trading defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, who could be a free agent after the season. Mayhew added he doesn't expect the team to be active at the trade deadline, according to the team's official website. 

Lions WR Calvin Johnson could be game-time decision Week 8
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:59 am ET) Lions coach Jim Caldwell said wide receiver Calvin Johnson felt good Thursday after practicing in a limited capacity Wednesday, according to the team's official website. Caldwell said Johnson would do more at practice Thursday and he did just that.

At Thursday's portion of practice open to the media, Johnson was seen cutting and running routes. Johnson was running routes with his helmet on Thursday.

The veteran wide receiver is trying to make his way back into the lineup Week 8 at Atlanta after missing the last two games due to an ankle injury. Johnson said he could be a game-time decision Sunday, per ESPN.

"You want to push it. I want to push it, but we're trying to be smart about it," Johnson said. "Trying to take advice from the training staff that they are giving me and go with that."

Johnson has totaled just three catches for 19 yards in his last two games and hasn't scored in his last four games.


Report: Darrelle Revis apologizes to Belichick for tardiness
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:50 am ET) Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis returned to the team's facility Tuesday hours after being sent home for tardiness so he could meet with head coach Bill Belichick to apologize, according to CSNNE.com.

A source close to Revis said the veteran cornerback is "very contrite" about having overslept Tuesday morning and showing up late to the team's facility, as first reported by The Boston Globe on Wednesday.

"He understands the policy and understands he broke the policy," the source said.


Seahawks RB Robert Turbin to fill fullback role
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:33 am ET) Seahawks running back Robert Turbin will continue to serve as the team's fullback after starting fullback Derrick Coleman broke a bone just before kickoff in Week 7, Pro Football Talk reports.

"I just want to win," Turbin said about his new role. "I want to help the team as much as I can. I’m a team guy. If they need me to take on the role for the next few weeks or whatever the case may be, than sure."

Seattle reportedly brought in free-agent fullback Greg Jones for a workout Tuesday but decided to roll with Turbin in the role. However, the team could choose to run fewer two-back formations while Coleman is out.


Report: Dolphins DE Dion Jordan expected to play vs. Jaguars
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12:11 am ET) Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Jaguars, the Palm Beach Post reports.

Jordan is coming off a six-game suspension caused by two failed drug tests. The former No. 3 overall pick may be relegated to special-teams duty in the Week 8 matchup, as the Dolphins boast a quality defensive line and may not have snaps to give Jordan on defense in the near future.


Report: Titans plan to start QB Zach Mettenberger vs. Texans
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) The Titans are planning to start rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger against the Texans Sunday, The Tennessean reports.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday that the plan was to have Jake Locker (thumb) regain the starting job when healthy, and the former first-round pick was limited in practice Wednesday. If Mettenberger has already been notified that he'll start, as the report suggests, it could mean Whisenhunt has changed his mind on Locker, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after the season.

Locker has completed 58 percent of his passes while averaging 6.8 yards per attempt and throwing four touchdowns and four interceptions in four starts. Backup Charlie Whitehurst has also played four games while starting three times, completing 60.2 percent of his passes while averaging 7.8 yards per attempt and throwing five touchdowns and two interceptions.


Cardinals QB Carson Palmer over nerve problem
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer said Wednesday that he is no longer dealing with a nerve problem in his right shoulder, the Arizona Republic reports.

"Yeah, I'm there right now," Palmer said. "I'm actually able to lift with my upper body, which I wasn't able to lift for five weeks or whatever it was. I definitely had a lot of atrophy, so I'm starting to get some strength back and put a little extra weight up top, which is good. You get sick of going into the weight room and not being able to do things. There was a month of that and it's good to be able to get back in there and do something."

Palmer missed three games earlier in the season but has performed well in the two games since returning, completing 66.7 percent of his passes for 503 yards with four touchdowns and one interception.


Report: Broncos practice squad S John Boyett arrested
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Broncos practice squad safety John Boyett was arrested early Wednesday on a charge of third degree assault, the Denver Post reports.

"We are disappointed to learn of the matter involving John Boyett and are in the process of gathering more information," the Broncos told the Post.

Boyett was arrested on charges of disorderly public intoxication on Sept. 2 of last year and waived by the Colts the next day. He signed with the Broncos last November.


Report: Texans' Brian Cushing (knee) out at least one week
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Texans linebacker Brian Cushing will miss at least one week of action due to a knee injury, Pro Football Talk reports.

The knee has reportedly been bothering Cushing for the last two weeks, and he has had the troublesome knee drained a few times recently. The Texans have just two games left before the bye, so it's possible Cushing is held out through the team's Week 11 bye before returning in Week 12.


Report: Titans WR Nate Washington could be on trade block
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Titans wide receiver Nate Washington has drawn some trade interest recently and could be on the trade block, NFL.com reports.

Washington recently lost his starting job to Justin Hunter and is making $4.8 million in the final year of a six-year contract signed in March 2009. He has tallied 13 receptions for 169 yards in seven games.
