Fantasy Basketball Trade Value Chart: Week 18 (2020)

Zion Williamson

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. 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! The NBA trade deadline has passed, and (in most leagues), the fantasy basketball trade deadline is coming up quickly! This will be the final edition of the trade value chart, as we’ve unfortunately run out of time for wheeling and dealing. Thanks so much for reading, and best of luck as we finish the season strong. Let’s get to it!

Notable Rise: Eric Bledsoe
Bledsoe has been hot over the last two weeks, rounding into form just ahead of the All-Star break. Across his last six games, the veteran guard has averaged 17.2 points, 6.5 boards, 6.2 assists, and 1.0 steals — numbers he’ll likely be able to keep up for the final weeks of the regular season. Bledsoe’s fantasy outlook is trending up, and if you’re able to land him in a deal, consistent production awaits.

Notable Fall: Kyrie Irving
He’s injured yet again, and Irving’s health status is about as clear as mud. He took a five-game absence into the All-Star Break and has been forced to miss 33 games since Nov. 14. With the fantasy playoffs fast approaching, Irving is a player I’ll be avoiding like the plague. If you can move him before the trade deadline, the move makes sense. You’ll want to have reliability on your roster for the fantasy postseason, and Irving is all but uncertain to suit up when it matters most.

Notable Rise: Zion Williamson
This year’s No. 1 overall pick has been hot since returning to action, averaging over 20 points and seven boards in 10 games played in 2020. He finished his last two games before the All-Star break with point totals of 31 and 32, showcasing his game-breaking abilities. Williamson has only averaged 27.4 minutes per game thus far, though his per-36 averages are juicy at 29.0 points, 9.9 boards, and 2.9 assists. It will be mighty difficult to pry Zion away from his excited owner, but if you can manage the feat, you’ll be better for it.

Notable Rise: Julius Randle
The big man keeps getting it done in New York, providing a stabilizing force for an otherwise rudderless team. He’s averaged 20.9 points, 11.1 rebounds, and 3.1 assists across his last 15 games, and unless he’s shut down, those numbers are certainly sustainable.

Notable Fall: Karl-Anthony Towns
KAT missed 15 straight contests before returning for 12 in a row and ultimately missing the Wolves’ final game before the All-Star break with a wrist injury. He’s expected to miss some time after the ASB, and his value takes a small hit as a result.

Notable Fall: Richaun Holmes
Holmes takes another tumble this week with the news that he’ll be out until Feb. 25 at the earliest. Holmes has missed 16 straight, and there’s a real possibility more games are added to that total if his time off carries into March. He provided early-round value to start the season, but his extended absence is a big cause of concern.

Notable Fall: Clint Capela
Apparently, Capela is still “weeks” away from returning to action, placing a potential Hawks debut somewhere towards mid-March. With the Hawks headed for the lottery, getting Capela back into action this season shouldn’t be a priority of Atlanta’s, and the team may opt to shut him down for the year. His trade value is minimal now with so much built-in risk, and Dewayne Dedmon has been posting sneaky-good numbers as of late. He’s a bounce-back candidate if there ever was one.
