Week 4 Fantasy Football Trade Value Chart (2019)

by Dan Harris | @danharris80 | Featured Writer
Sep 25, 2019

Patrick Mahomes’ trade value continues to rise this week.

By this time, fantasy owners should start to have a real sense of their teams’ strengths and weaknesses. Particularly with bye weeks starting, options on the waiver wire will begin to get thinner and thinner, and looking to the trade market to bolster your roster is likely your best bet.

To help you along the way, consult the FantasyPros trade value chart. Covering every format, simply add up the values of all players involved on both sides of any deal to see which side comes out on top.

Player Current Value Previous Value +/- Current Value Previous Value +/-
Patrick Mahomes 24 19 +5 44 36 +8
Deshaun Watson 14 14 28 28
Lamar Jackson 14 14 28 28
Dak Prescott 10 10 20 20
Matt Ryan 9 7 +2 18 14 +4
Tom Brady 9 10 -1 18 20 -2
Russell Wilson 9 7 +2 18 14 +4
Aaron Rodgers 9 10 -1 18 20 -2
Carson Wentz 7 7 14 14
Josh Allen 6 6 12 12
Jared Goff 6 7 -1 12 14 -2
Kyler Murray 5 N/A +5 10 N/A +10

I don’t really know how much higher we can push Patrick Mahomes’ value. But suffice to say that as good as Deshaun Watson and Lamar Jackson have been and will be, Mahomes is in another stratosphere. There’s a strong argument that he should be even higher in trade value, and he may continue to trend in that direction. As difficult as it is to give up a top-tier player for a quarterback in a single-QB league, Mahomes is worth it.

Reports of Alvin Kamara’s demise were greatly exaggerated, as Teddy Bridgewater’s ascension to starting quarterback had no impact on the shifty running back’s performance against the Seahawks. Sean Payton’s brilliant offensive system and Kamara’s nearly unparalleled ability to evade tacklers should keep his value up near the truly elite runners.

That is particularly the case with the injury to one of the other top fantasy running backs, Saquon Barkley, who is set to miss anywhere from four to eight weeks with a high ankle sprain. Even if you value Barkley as if he will miss toward the higher end of that timeline, which would be wise in my opinion, he still retains RB2 value because he can be a difference-maker in the last five or six weeks of your fantasy season. But you’ll need to have the depth to afford to deal for him. His replacement, Wayne Gallman, enters the trade chart but is certainly not a major target at this time until we see how he looks and how the backfield will break down.

Chris Carson’s fumblitis is ruining one of the best situations in football – the bellcow running back on a team that wants nothing more than to run the football, particularly close to the goal-line. Carson has now lost a fumble in each of the first three games, and even if Pete Carroll continues to give him plenty of work, as he says he will, Carson’s job security is tenuous at best. Every running back outside of a select handful has warts, and Carson’s situation and love from the coaching staff still keep him as an RB2 for trade value purposes. But you’d be wise to have Rashaad Penny on your team if you make the move for Carson.

And what do we do with the Chargers backfield? Melvin Gordon will report to the Chargers Thursday. With that news, he immediately vaults into the mid-RB2 range. Why not higher? Well, despite reporting Thursday, he will miss Week 4, the softest of matchups against the Dolphins. And after missing all of training camp, it seems highly unlikely that the Chargers would simply toss him immediately into the featured role he occupied last year. Remember, the Chargers may be 1-2, but their run game has not exactly been the issue, as both Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson have run well. All that to say, Gordon’s value isn’t yet where it would have been prior to the season, and Ekeler’s doesn’t completely fall off the table. Even with the developments, Ekeler should still be valued as a borderline RB2 for now, particularly in half- and full-PPR formats.

There isn’t too much movement in the trade values of wide receivers this week. Mike Evans reminded us what he is capable of, Tyler Lockett showed that his two-target game in Week 1 was an anomaly, Josh Gordon no longer has Antonio Brown to worry about, and despite a down game, Marquise Brown saw plenty of targets, and won’t be going away.

But it’s worth noting that in the Week 2 version of the trade chart, I noted that fantasy owners should avoid overreacting to developments, and that Terry McLaurin probably wasn’t going to wind up as a top-10 wide receiver.  And, although I still believe that statement, his trade value isn’t all that far off. McLaurin has caught at least five passes and a touchdown in each of the Redskins’ first three games. He’s shown toughness and strong route-running ability, and whatever you may think of the Redskins’ offense, the team is able to move the ball and put up points. There’s little reason to doubt that McLaurin will be the primary focus going forward and, as such, a WR2.

Other risers include Sterling Shepard, whose healthy return and upgrade in quarterback make him an intriguing option, and Marvin Jones, who probably should not have dropped in value as much as he had, and who has seen 24 targets and reeled in 16 catches over the first three games.

Tight Ends

Austin Hooper 7 N/A +7 8 N/A +8 8 N/A +8
Delanie Walker 7 8 -1 8 9 -1 8 9 -1

As usual, there’s not too much to talk about with the tight end position. Evan Engram’s value jumps a bit with a rookie quarterback likely to lean on him, Darren Waller is a legitimate top-five option going forward, Greg Olsen looks to have found the fountain of youth and has a connection with Kyle Allen, and Austin Hooper will have enough big games to justify starting weekly. Once you get much passed that, it’s a total wasteland at the position.
