Bye weeks are going to quickly turns to redraft fantasy football land into complete chaos. This is where the real managers separate from those only capable of putting together a respectable draft. Unofficially, bye weeks are where playoff berths occur, as rosters are stretched thin and any fantasy team can pull an upset over a team once thought of as the juggernaut.
The waiver wire can be enticing to fill roster holes, but often the fill-ins are in high demand for only one or two weeks worth of use.
Oftentimes, a better approach than the waiver wire can be orchestrating a trade to fill some gaps before bye weeks ravage fantasy options. At this point, it should be apparent where the holes in your roster exist. If nothing glaring needs to be filled, then sometimes upgrading through a two-for-one trade can be the key piece to vault you to a fantasy 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.
