NFL Week 12 Fantasy Football Trade Value Chart (2021): Tight End Risers, Fallers, Injury Notes

See where the likes of Darren Waller and Rob Gronkowski land on our Week 12 Trade Value Chart.

This trade value chart probably looks different than other charts you’re used to seeing. Most other analysts take their rest of the season rankings, apply arbitrary numbers to each player based on rank order, and call it a day.

I used a value-based drafting Excel tool to create the initial pre-Week 1 values for this chart. Since then, I have made changes based on the results from the first three weeks, FantasyPros Rest of the Season ECR, The Wolf’s Rest of Season Rankings, and my expected fantasy points analysis (updated every Wednesday).

All values are based on a 12 team league with full-PPR scoring. Click the links below to see values for other positions.

For a more detailed injury breakdown, check out CJay’s Trainer’s Room article that comes out later in the week. I am writing this on Monday night and tried to take the following injuries into account, but stay tuned for updates throughout the week. Injury data is primarily sourced from The Fantasy Doctors and ProFootballDoc.

  • Adam Trautman suffered an MCL sprain and should be out 4-6 weeks according to Adam Schefter. He is the only significant tight end injury that I am aware of this week.
  • Logan Thomas is getting closer to returning from his hamstring injury and could be a good playoff stash for TE-needy teams.
  • Darren Waller and Rob Gronkowski each saw eight targets. Both land in the risers category. Fallers include Kyle Pitts and Dan Arnold. The latter saw zero targets in Week 11.
  • Eric Ebron is likely having knee surgery that could knock him out for “extended time”. Ebron was cutting into rookie Pat Freiermuth‘s snaps after his return from injury. But given this news, Freiermuth is a locked-in TE1 for the rest of the season.


  • I am currently working as an accountant and have been obsessed with fantasy football for over 10 years. My specialties are auction draft strategy and discovering unique team management strategies to maximize winning odds. Thanks for reading!
