Fantasy Baseball Trade Value Chart (Week 6)

May 9, 2019

In an outstanding hitter’s park and with plenty of speed, Senzel immediately vaults up in value.

Sometimes it takes an actual offer received to crystallize how you feel about a player. After all, it’s one thing to consider a player’s value in a hypothetical universe, but when you’re faced with the prospect of actually trading him away in a league that matters, it’s a whole different story.

Last week, I received several offers for Yasiel Puig, the majority of which were close or slightly in my favor based on the trade chart. And I simply could not pull the trigger on any of them. And that’s when I realized that, in my opinion, despite his struggles, Puig had a higher trade value, to me, than was reflected in the chart.

Trade values are and should always be fluid. You must constantly reassess your view on every player to determine whether any deal makes sense for your team. And to that end, make sure to consult our updated trade chart below before striking any deal.

As you see, the vast majority of movers in trade value this week are either injury-related or the result of having enough data to fully buy in to a player’s performance, largely with pitchers. For our injury movers, James Paxton’s knee issues, Jameson Taillon’s elbow, Chris Archer’s slower than expected recovery, Khris Davis’s nagging hip issues, Juan Soto’s back spasms, and Pedro Strop’s hamstring strain all negatively impact each player’s value. None of this should require much elaboration — injures = negative effect on trade value. Simple!

There were plenty of non-injury movers, however. Nick Senzel got off to a lightning quick start with the Reds, and the team essentially cleared out any potential competition for him. In an outstanding hitter’s park and with plenty of speed, he immediately vaults up in value.

Several pitchers have had enough success to show that their early season gains are not fluky. Matt Boyd has kept his added velocity and leaned into his slider. Caleb Smith has a changeup that just won’t quit and shows none of the control issues that plagued him in the past. Hyun-Jin Ryu is healthy. Stephen Strasburg looks strong. Jose Berrios averages nearly seven innings per start of quality production. And Chris Sale is back. Although it’s still early, there’s enough of a data sample to show that these players’ performances are legitimate. As such, their trade values should be, too.
