Fantasy Basketball Trade Value Chart: Week 10 (2019)

Merry Christmas, everyone, and thanks for joining me as we dive into our latest trade value chart for Week 10 of the NBA season! This week’s chart is out a few days early in preparation for the holiday, so you can enjoy it without having to miss a single present being opened! We’ve gathered enough information to see trends and predict future success or shortcomings, and the values listed below reflect that. At the same time, trade values are constantly changing. Guys like Luka Doncic — a legitimate MVP candidate — are among the most valuable players in the league but have to have their values knocked down when they’re injured. Doncic’s current ankle issue has him taking a tumble, despite his incredible numbers when healthy. On the other side of the coin, Marvin Bagley III and De’Aaron Fox returned to action this week after substantial injury layoffs, and their values get a big boost.

If you’re anything like me, you love to trade — it’s the best part of playing fantasy sports. Trading really allows you to dig in as the general manager of your imaginary squad and improve your team. In my friends and family points league, it seems like there’s a trade at least every other day (if not every single day), and I can’t see either of my brothers-in-law without talking trade and trying to strike a deal. The trade market is a funny thing, though. It’s fluid and constantly changing, week-by-week and sometimes, game-by-game.

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 Nikola Jokic (45) for Jimmy Butler (47) is even. If you want to make a two-for-two deal, simply add the players’ values together. A package of Devin Booker (35) and Jamal Murray (27) for Bradley Beal (44) and Khris Middleton (20)  is righteous 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.

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 10 of the NBA season:

There’s not a lot of movement at the top this week, as the top five guards remain locked into their previous positions. Luka Doncic is dealing with an ankle injury, though he’s expected to return shortly after Christmas. He takes a dive in value because of the injury, but the decrease isn’t significant enough to drop him too far down the chart. Kyrie Irving (shoulder) still hasn’t returned to the court and remains out indefinitely, dropping his value and keeping Spencer Dinwiddie an elite option in the interim. Mike Conley (hamstring) and Eric Bledsoe (leg) are dealing with injuries that will likely sideline them until the end of the month at a minimum. Lonzo Ball has been limited to a bench role, and his recent play doesn’t suggest he’ll be back in the starting lineup anytime soon.

De’Aaron Fox has been back for three games and averaged 16.3 points, 6.0 assists, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.7 steals, proving that he hasn’t lost a step following a 17-game absence. His value rises significantly here and could easily rise in our next edition if he can maintain this level of play. A recent string of devastating injuries to the Raptors causes a spike in value for Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet, who will both be expected to take on much bigger workloads moving forward.

Blake Griffin just hasn’t looked himself this season, and his play has been pretty poor for fantasy owners. Griffin has been barely playable in 12-team leagues, and he’s now dealing with an ankle injury. It’s tough to put much stock in him at this point, but the upside is undeniable. Kristaps Porzingis has been on an incredible tear since Luka Doncic (ankle) went down, producing a double-double with at least two swats in every game in that span and returning early-round value thanks to his increased opportunities. Pascal Siakam’s (groin) value takes a big hit, as he could be out multiple weeks with a recent injury. He’s produced like a fantasy superstar all year, making the news a tough pill to swallow for fantasy owners. Marvin Bagley III has exclusively come off the bench since returning from his extended absence, but he’s doing enough in his limited court time to be a starter in 12-team leagues. Zion Williamson has very little trade value outside of dynasty leagues at this point, as he’s apparently not close to a return. With PJ Washington (finger) having recently undergone surgery, veteran Marvin Williams makes for a solid pickup in most formats thanks to the upside he’s shown with more opportunities.

Karl-Anthony Towns has been dealing with a knee injury that’s caused him to miss time, though he’d been experiencing a downturn in production as of late prior to the injury. Nikola Jokic has been balling recently, returning the early-round value fantasy owners expected when they spent a top-10 pick on him this season. DeAndre Ayton returned from his suspension but has already suffered a setback with his ankle. Richaun Holmes takes a hit in value with the return of Marvin Bagley III, though he still sees enough volume that his production won’t fall off a cliff. Nikola Vucevic has returned to play some quality basketball and gets a boost in value for this edition of the chart. Hassan Whiteside takes a jump up the board thanks to some monstrous December stat lines, and he’s propelled himself into the ranks of the top-10 fantasy players on the season. It’s unlikely that level of play holds for the rest of the season, though he should remain an elite option, even with a little regression.
