Injury concerns have thrown a wrench into fantasy managers' plans, as some of the top quarterbacks, running back and wide receiver options are questionable or worse on their respective teams' injury reports entering Week 4. There are some viable waiver wire options as backups look to make their mark heading into Week 4.

Oftentimes, orchestrating a trade to fill some gaps before bye weeks ravage fantasy options is a better choice than perusing the waiver wire. At this point, it should be apparent where the holes in your fantasy roster exist. If nothing glaring needs to be filled, upgrading through a two-for-one trade can be the key piece to vault your fantasy team to a championship.  

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.

HOW TO USE TRADE VALUE CHART

Both PPR and standard-scoring leagues are highlighted, and, this year, superflex has also been added as a column where an additional starting spot can be made up of any skill position player, including quarterback. This league structure causes quarterback value to skyrocket, as 12-team leagues holding onto every available starting NFL quarterback.

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.
