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.

Josh Gordon works with third unit in anticipation of suspension
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:08 pm ET) Browns embattled Pro Bowl wide receiver Josh Gordon practiced Saturday with the third-team offense. It is assumed it was considered a waste for him to work with the first unit since he will likely be suspended for the season after several offseason infractions.

Gordon has been granted an appeal with the NFL, which has been slated for Friday. But his positive test for banned substances and subsequent DUI arrest might have cemented a one-year ban.


Johnathan Joseph getting back into swing of things
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:02 pm ET) Texans standout cornerback Johnathan Joseph had a reunion of sorts with his teammates Saturday during the first day of camp. Rehab from foot surgery had forced him to miss all the minicamp activities.

"Just trying to get out there and just feel my way through it," Joseph told ESPN. "Stay on top of technique and on top of the playbook and just catch up with the rest of the guys you know from what I missed in the spring."

Joseph played 15 games last year and finished with 44 tackles and three interceptions.


Devon Still returns to action for Cincinnati
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:51 pm ET) Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still has been cleared to practice after having landed on the PUP list with a back problem.

Still was used sparingly the last two seasons.


Curtis Feigt let go by Cincinnati
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:48 pm ET) The Bengals have dumped rookie tackle Curtis Feigt under the waived/left squad category. Feigt was signed by the team in May.

Holdout forces Seahawks to put Marshawn Lynch on reserve list
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:33 pm ET) The Seahawks have placed disgruntled star running back Marshawn Lynch on the reserve/did not report list, which gives them a roster exemption.

Lynch is holding out in an attempt to land a new contract. His current deal has two years and $13 million remaining.


Mike Mitchell to miss week with groin issue
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:26 pm ET) Steelers free safety Mike Mitchell, the expected starter at that position after signing as a free agent, will miss the first week of training camp with a groin injury. He has been placed on the PUP list.

Mitchell was a standout at Carolina last season with 67 tackles, four sacks and four interceptions.


Nate Byham let go by Patriots
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:17 pm ET) Five days after signing tight end Nate Byham, the Patriots have released him. Byham had played 29 games over four seasons with San Francisco and Tampa Bay with eight starts. He compiled 11 receptions as mostly a blocker during that time.

Brandon Gibson lines up as first-team slot receiver
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:13 pm ET) Speculation that Brandon Gibson would lose his job as Dolphins slot receiver to Rishard Matthews or Jarvis Landry after suffering a petellar tear last season appears unfounded after the former lined up with the first team Saturday in practice, per the Palm Beach Post.

Gibson, who made an impressive catch over the middle from quarterback Ryan Tannehill, was impressive before going down a year ago. He caught 29 passes for 322 yards in his first six games and snagged three touchdowns in his last two.

It appears Landry and Matthews will battle for second-team duties, at least during camp.


Back spasms hinder Lardarius Webb in practice
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3:01 pm ET) Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb is experiencing back spasms that caused him to leave Friday practice, but the problem is not considered serious, according to the Baltimore Sun. Webb underwent sports hernia surgery last year, but has made a full recovery.

Chris Watt taken off field with undisclosed injury
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:16 pm ET) Chargers rookie guard Chris Watt was carted of the field Saturday and taken into the training room. He had kneeled on the sideline for a few minutes before his removal.

The third round pick has worked at right guard with the second team. He performed well in pass-blocking drills before going down, per the San Diego Union-Tribune.
