Fantasy Basketball Trade Value Chart: Week 6 (2019)

Just how high has Pascal Siakam climbed in trade value?

Happy Thanksgiving folks! We’re back with another of our bi-weekly trade charts as we navigate through Week 6 of the NBA season. If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a million things to do this week, including (but not limited to) cooking, cleaning, shopping, more cooking, and more cleaning. Yikes! But fear not — that’s where our trade value chart comes in handy. With everything going on in your busy life, you probably don’t have time to check out trends, advanced metrics, or analytics (come on, you’re not Daryl Morey). The values listed below come in a handy table that places a direct numerical value on each player so you can make trades simply by comparing values and without having to dig through a bunch of numbers. For example, a simple one-for-one trade of Clint Capela (35) for LaMarcus Aldridge (35) is dead even. If you want to make a two-for-two deal, simply add the players’ values together. A package of Jrue Holiday (37) and Jonathan Isaac (30) could be swapped for Bradley Beal (42) and DeMar DeRozan (26) as the combined value of both packages is nearly identical.

Obviously, this isn’t a one-size-fits-all list of trade values, as league size, available roster spots and team needs all come into play when evaluating a potential trade. If you can fill a roster spot that needs attention or improve in some weak categories, then making the deal makes sense, even if you feel like you’re overpaying.

The trade chart is perfect to peruse after downing your third helping of mashed potatoes and pouring another glass of wine. As you fade into that warming Thanksgiving coma and a trade suddenly appears on your preferred fantasy app, just look at the players, compare the numbers and make your decision without giving it a second thought. It’s just that easy.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk trade! Here are the current trade values as we make our way through Week 6 of the NBA season:

The cream always rises to the top, right? Well, the cream continues to rise among the top guards in this week’s trade value chart. Luka Doncic is playing out of his mind and is firmly entrenched in the MVP conversation because he can usually mess around and get a triple-double (cue Ice Cube). James Harden is pushing for a 40-point scoring average, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him hit it with his ridiculous usage and crazy amount of threes and free-throws. Jeremy Lamb is back and sees his value start to climb thanks to some quality games over the past week since his return to the court. Ditto Lonzo Ball. Spencer Dinwiddie has been rock solid with Kyrie Irving (shoulder) on the shelf, and he’s a must-play any time Uncle Drew is sidelined.

After a rocky start to the season, Jrue Holiday is balling out and has re-established himself as one of the best two-way guards in the game. He gets a major boost this week as he approaches the top-30  in cat leagues. The time to buy low on Holiday has clearly passed. Solid play from perennial Sixth Man of the Year candidate Lou Williams has his value rising steadily, and Jamal Murray has been a breath of fresh air for a Denver team that’s not getting the most our of Nikola Jokic thus far. Devonte’ Graham and Ky Bowman make an appearance in this week’s chart, as Graham has played superbly in his new starting role with Charlotte and Bowman has made the most of his opportunities without D’Angelo Russell on the court. Former “bust” Markelle Fultz has embraced his new role with the Magic and looks like a nice option at point guard if he can maintain his starting job. Buddy Hield‘s career-high 41 points and 11 triples this week contributed to his slight rise on the chart.

We’ve got some significant movers among the forwards this week due to solid play. Bojan Bogdanovic has been on fire as of late, draining 4.3 triples across his last four games, while scoring 24.8 points and contributing quality numbers in the stat sheet. He’s the biggest mover here, and his usage as a primary scoring option for the Jazz only pushes the needle upward. Brandon Clarke has quietly been a top-60 guy in his rookie season, playing efficient basketball, snatching up rebounds and getting involved on defense. He’s been a much better value than Jaren Jackson Jr., though the latter has been scoring more effectively over his last handful of games. Domantas Sabonis has been crashing the glass with authority and takes a big leap this week as he continues to gobble up rebounds and put up points.

Kevin Love has been dealing with a back injury and takes a hit in value here. Danuel House is back in business and is less than 50% owned, making him a guy to target if he’s still left on the waiver wire. Anthony Davis‘ shoulder injury has limited him enough to be knocked off the top spot here, and the Greek Freak captures that mantle after his recent 50-point explosion. LeBron James leads the league with 11.0 assists per game, and his gawdy numbers over the last two weeks push his value just below Antetokounmpo’s. Due to a series of injuries to the Pelicans, Kenrich Williams and E’Twaun Moore have stepped up to play some big minutes. With the team returning to health, those guys still need to be owned in deeper leagues and have a little bit of remaining value in 12-teamers. Jonathan Isaac continues his breakout season and his value should be even greater moving forward with Nikola Vucevic out for roughly a month with an ankle injury and Aaron Gordon dealing with an ankle injury of his own.

Despite Rudy Gobert dealing with an ankle injury, he’s become even more valuable since our last trade chart, as the Stifle Tower is finally playing the basketball that was expected of him. Mitchell Robinson is back on the court, though he’s seeing just over 20 minutes per game. Blockinson’s value is rising, but far from meteorically, thanks to his lack of consistent minutes in New York’s crowded frontcourt. As mentioned above, Vooch is out for at least four weeks with an ankle injury, leaving Mo Bamba and Khem Birch to divvy out the center responsibilities in his absence. Both players jump into the list here. Two more additions — Jahlil Okafor and Jaxson Hayes — have been great plays when given the minutes this season. 

Clint Capela seems unstoppable on the glass, as 20 boards a night has become a regular occurrence for him. Bam Adebayo is involved in virtually every facet of the game, making him a highly-valuable center. Montrezl Harrell doesn’t show signs of slowing down, even with Paul George and Kawhi Leonard seemingly healthy. Towns, Drummond, Embiid and Jokic remain your top-four center options once again, and that group is highly unlikely to change barring injury or suspension.
