Welcome to the Week 6 edition of the 2018 fantasy football trade value chart, which helps you analyze potential trades to improve your fantasy football team. Our chart assigns a value to all relevant players — across all positions — to help you make the best trade possible.

The trade value chart uses our rest-of-season projections to assign values to every relevant player. The dollar amounts assume a 12-team league and a starting lineup of 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, and 1 Flex. The players are displayed in order of their standard league values, but we’ve included the PPR values for those players as well.

One man stands alone atop the heap of fantasy players this season: Todd Gurley. He’s a three-down, workhorse running back on a 5-0 team that’s averaging 34.6 points per game. Gurley will rack up the touches and touchdowns all season long. If you want to trade for Gurley, be prepared to pay a king’s ransom.

This week’s biggest riser is Corey Clement, who stands to benefit the most with Jay Ajayi heading to IR. Wendell Smallwood will also have a role, but in Weeks 2 and 3, when healthy, Clement out-snapped Smallwood 78 to 52.

One of the week’s biggest fallers is Calvin Ridley. Despite his awesome production Weeks 2-4, he’s still only running about 70% of Atlanta’s passing snaps, which puts him firmly behind Julio Jones (89%) and Mohamed Sanu (88%) and even Austin Hooper (79%). Ridley has shown that he is capable of producing big games, but it won’t be consistent. It’s a great time to sell high on Ridley.

Check out the full chart below. Remember, these values are not written in stone. Rather, they are meant to serve as a guide to help you make the best deal possible.
