Fantasy Football Trade Values

trade values week 6
What should you do with Amari Cooper?

Week 6 is upon us and the injury bug has not been kind to the league.

This week we pour one out for Odell and JJ Watt (and their owners) as they were lost for the season. While it’s frustrating for owners who lost those players, it opens up potential opportunities for trades. The Odell owner in your league may be looking for some WR help and if they have a solid RB stable or 2 good QB’s you may be able to work something out.

Personally, I lost Cook and Carson last week and Odell this week, so my team has taken a beating. I know there are plenty of others out there with similar stories. Owners who have lost David Johnson, Allen Robinson, Cook, Carson, Odell, Eifert, and the list goes on, may be looking to add some depth to their rosters. This is when you can come in and potentially get a trade through that normally may not be accepted.

Quick note – Make sure that you look at the other owner’s team and offer them something that can conceivably benefit them as well. If I have 3 stud WR’s and you offer me a 4th good WR for my best RB, I’m not accepting it because it does me no good to lose out on a RB to get a WR who I will have to bench. Don’t be an idiot when you trade, try and have it make sense for the other team as well.

With that, here are a couple of players that are worth looking at buying low on as their owners may be a little frustrated.

Amari Cooper

Cooper has been absolutely terrible this year, catching a total of 4! Balls over the past 3 weeks. It can’t really get worse. I wouldn’t give up much for him, but if you have an owner who is tired of him, you may be able to get him for very little.

The good news: it sounds like Derek Carr has a chance to play this week, which is a good thing Cooper, and you have to imagine that he begins to turn things around.

Possible trade candidates: Martavis Bryant, Tarik Cohen, Adam Thielen

The Risk: You are banking on his upside. He has not been good for almost a full season, but we know the talent is there somewhere.

Doug Baldwin

Seattle has once again gotten off to a slow start, but they have consistently been able to turn things around in previous years. Baldwin has been hampered by an injury the past couple of weeks and has had two duds in a row.

The good news: He has a bye this week, which hopefully allows him to heal up. Russell Wilson is playing well, which bodes well for the whole offense.

Possible trade candidates: CJ Anderson, Davante Adams, Demaryius Thomas, DeMarco Murray

Carlos Hyde

Hyde is coming off of a bad game, in which Breida ended up with more carries, yards, and receptions than him. It is a little unclear as to how much Hyde’s injury affected his playing time and how much was the “hot hand” approach that Shanahan said he was taking.

The good news: Hyde is the better running back and he has had a great year up until this point. There is always a little injury risk, but he is currently running back 11 in half-point ppr, after a dismal 2.3 point game. I see him finishing inside the top 15 and think you may be able to get him on the cheap right now.

Possible trade candidates: Demaryius Thomas, Chris Hogan, Joe Mixon, Michael Crabtree

Jay Ajayi

Ajayi has started off very slowly, but it is more a product of the Dolphins offense than it is of Ajayi’s talent. He has had three bad weeks in a row and his owners are probably open to dumping him.

The Good News: 27 touches. Ajayi received 27 touches last week. With that type of volume, he is going to be able to produce and he doesn’t have any real competition in the backfield for touches.

Possible Trade Candidates: Michael Crabtree, Chris Hogan, Demaryius Thomas, Tyreek Hill

Mark Ingram

Ingram has seemingly one of the weirdest relationships with his team. He is a very talented running back, but most fantasy owners would swear that Sean Payton hates him. He hasn’t done a whole lot so far this season, but he also hasn’t been terrible.

The Good News: With the departure of Adrian Peterson, Ingram should receive a slightly increased and a more consistent workload. He will also be the goal line back for the team. Kamara will still get his, but Ingram should be a solid RB2 from here on out, and he is past his bye. If you can get him for a flex type player, I would do it.

Possible Trade Candidates: Devante Parker, Kelvin Benjamin, Marshawn Lynch, Jarvis Landry

  1. It was my first time looking at your trade values last week and the thing that I most liked was the 2:1 trade multiplier. It helped me push through some trades that worked wonderfully. I am not seeing the multiplier on these rankings. Was that a one-time thing or should I apply a certain multiplier to each tier?
