At the beginning of the season, I can calculate trade values via the same method I used to determine auction prices. The values in the chart don’t perfectly correlate to auction prices. I made slight changes based on the FantasyPros ECR, results from Week 1, The Wolf’s Rest of Season Rankings, and my expected fantasy points analysis (available every Wednesday). But for the most part, the below values should closely reflect consensus projections.
Even if you play in a snake draft league, using auction values as an initial baseline yields more accurate trade values during the season. Jeff Henderson’s Fantasy WAR is a fantastic metric that can also be helpful to keep in mind when negotiating trades.
In future weeks, I will break down the top risers and fallers in trade value. For more information on how to make successful deals, check out my strategies for negotiating trades.
WEEK 1 RB NOTES
- Elijah Mitchell is expected to miss about two months with a knee injury. He has very little trade value but is worth holding onto in most leagues. Jeff Wilson seems to be the next man up, but the 49ers backfield is notoriously difficult to predict.
- Najee Harris suffered a foot injury on Sunday. Adam Schefter reports that he should be able to play in Week 2, but monitor his status, especially since he is coming off a foot injury in training camp. I downgraded him slightly for injury.
