Fantasy Football: Dynasty Trade Value Chart (April 2018 Update)

Saints running back Alvin Kamara is among the most valuable dynasty players

Have you ever had an offer sent to you that included a total of six different players including draft picks and you had no idea how to break it down? Do you match up player vs. player and compare them that way? That doesn’t work when you have a stud being traded away for depth. I’ve done the articles on what a dynasty draft pick is actually worth (read it here), but again, what if there are multiple picks/players involved?

This is one of my favorite articles to write, simply because it requires actual league involvement in order to complete. That’s right, I went out in my own leagues and started offering trades to see what I could get in return, as well as looking at some of my other league-mates’ trades. I did this to make your life easier.

What you’ll find below is the only dynasty trade value chart that you’ll need. Putting a trade together for Julio Jones? Once you throw in Jarvis Landry, who else needs to be added? What about picks, how many picks would I have to include? Every player/pick has a value and you’re now going to know what it should take to acquire any of them. Understand that some owners will not part for ‘just’ market value, that they want more. How much more? Well that’s up to you, but this should tell you if you’re on the better end of the deal.

The way the chart works is pretty simple, where you’re just adding up each side of the trade in order to see which side wins. For Example: If you’re offered a late first-round pick and Tyreek Hill in exchange for A.J. Green, you’d add the value of the late first-round pick (25) and Hill (38) together, which would equal 63. Green himself has a value of 60, so you’d be slightly winning that trade, though it’s close. That’s just a small sample of what the chart can do.

Another thing to keep in mind is that league-size is important. Don’t trade away three players for one, unless you have the depth to do so. This trade chart was built with a 12-team, half-PPR setting in mind. It also has my rankings, so if yours are different, just move your players up or down the scale. It should remain extremely close.
