Tom Brady is the number one scoring fantasy quarterback after being drafted as QB10 this offseason. James Conner is RB 11 in PPR leagues after going off the board as the RB36. Only two of the top ten scoring wide receivers were drafted as a top ten wide receiver, with five of the top ten drafted at WR20 or later. Don’t even get me started about the tight end position. It’s safe to say that things haven’t gone according to plan for the 2021 fantasy season.
There are only a few crucial weeks left of the fantasy regular season, with trade deadline season quickly approaching. Now is the time to put the finishing touches on a championship-caliber fantasy roster.

This article aims to help alleviate the difficulties in making accurate fantasy trades by assigning a dollar value to any player above replacement level for standard-structure leagues — leagues that start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE and a flex.
The calculation utilizes our rest-of-season fantasy projections for every player's fantasy outlook. We assign a value of zero (-) to players who are just out of the realm of possible starts in that particular league type, which provides us with a replacement-level basis of fantasy points for that position. Every player above replacement is then assigned a value based on the rest-of-season projections. This accurately takes into account both position scarcity as well as future projections.
The values can be used to line up both individual players in trades and two-for-one or three-for-two offerings, among others. This hopefully helps some fantasy managers come to a consensus on worthwhile trades for both parties. Typically, the side giving up the most players should expect to pay a premium of 5-10% over the stud player's cost.
The value rankings work across positions, but it is often easiest to compare within positions before finding the value for players at other positions. Hit me up on Twitter with any questions or if you are looking for customized charts based on unique leagues and/or scoring.
