Nikola Jokic

Nikola Jokic holds the most value in our week 12 trade chart.

It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means. Well, maybe you don’t. Starting this week, I’ll be taking over the regular fantasy basketball trade value chart here at FantasyPros. Let’s go over some questions you may have before we dig into the chart.

Q: What changes?

A: Mainly just the person doing the chart. Oh, and I’m also doing it for 8-cat leagues because I don’t believe in 9-cat leagues.

Q: Is the format the same?

A: Well, thank you for taking the time to read instead of just skipping to the chart. I appreciate it. The format is different. I like to keep an easy-to-read chart, so I took out multiple columns of projections throughout to make it more user-friendly.

Q: How did you come up with these values?

A: Personal bias, of course. As Zak used to, I based them on the projections for the rest of the season and made some of my tweaks.

Q: How often will we get this?

A: The goal is weekly, but that could change depending on what the bosses want.

Q: If I trade five players with a ten value, will that get me Luka Doncic?

A: No, that’s not how this works. It’s a baseline to show you player values, but quantity doesn’t always equal quality. Shoot your shot.

Q: You suck, and you know nothing.

A: 1. Fair. 2. That isn’t a question. 3. All complaints can be sent to me on Twitter at @MichaelWaterloo.

Q: How are you navigating COVID with the ranks?

A: It’s tough, and honestly uncomfortable! I’m sticking to their values, assuming that all health and protocols will be short-term absences.

OK, that’s an overview of what to expect.

I should also note that players who are out with injuries for an extended period or players like Ben Simmons, whose futures are up in the air, have been omitted from this chart. But if we decide to do a dynasty version of this (hint, hint), they’ll all be included. So, here is the Week 12 trade value chart without further adieu.
