Fantasy Football Rankings: Dynasty Trade Value Chart (March 2020 Update)

If you want to acquire D.K. Metcalf in dynasty, prepare to pay up

Have you ever had an offer sent to you that included a total of six different players including draft picks and you had no idea how to break it down? Do you match up player vs. player and compare them that way? That doesn’t work when you have a stud being traded away for depth. I’ve done the articles on what a dynasty draft pick is actually worth (read it here), but again, what if there are multiple picks/players involved?

This is one of my favorite articles to write, simply because it requires actual league involvement in order to complete. That’s right, I went out in my own leagues and started offering trades to see what I could get in return, as well as looking at some of my other league-mates’ trades. I did this to make your life easier.

What you’ll find below is the only dynasty trade value chart that you’ll need. Putting a trade together for Julio Jones? Once you throw in Robby Anderson, who else needs to be added? What about picks, how many picks would I have to include? Every player/pick has a value and you’re now going to know what it should take to acquire any of them. Understand that some owners will not part for ‘just’ market value, that they want more. How much more? Well, that’s up to you, but this should tell you if you’re on the better end of the deal.

The way the chart works is pretty simple, where you’re just adding up each side of the trade in order to see which side wins. For Example: If you’re offered a late first-round pick and Courtland Sutton in exchange for Michael Thomas, you’d add the value of a late first-round rookie pick (22) and Sutton (55) together, giving them a value of 77. Thomas himself has a value of 82, so you’d be losing that trade. That’s just a small sample of what the chart can do. It should also be noted that the more players that are added in on one side, the more they’re devalued.

Another thing to keep in mind is that league-size is important. Don’t trade away three players for one, unless you have the depth to do so. This trade chart was built with a 12-team, full-PPR setting in mind. It also has my rankings, so if yours are different, just move your players up or down the scale. It should remain extremely close. Understand that if you can get a player for cheaper, attempt it. After all, that’s the whole idea, right? Win as many trades as possible.

DRAFT PICKS*

Potential Draft Pick Value
TOP-3 PICK 42
TOP-6 PICK 34
TOP-12 PICK 22
EARLY 2ND ROUND 17
LATE 2ND ROUND 10
EARLY 3RD ROUND 6
LATE 3RD ROUND 2

*If you’d like to know how the values for rookie draft picks were generated, the research was done in this article right here. Understand that when it says top-three pick, it’s because when trading for a future draft pick, you don’t know what exact pick it will be. Draft pick value does vary year-to-year, but this is how you should value them on average.
