RSJ’s Jackson Barrett created a value-based drafting Excel tool to create the preseason values for this Fantasy Football Trade Value Chart. The tool uses the FantasyPros consensus projections to assign values based on a 12-team, full PPR league.
Each week throughout the season, I will alter these values to reflect the player’s value for the rest of the season. I have made changes based on the FantasyPros ECR, results from the season so far, and The Wolf’s Rest of Season Rankings. But for the most part, the below values should generally reflect consensus rankings. The values provided also allow for comparing player values across positions, not just within one position group.

Before going over player values, let’s take a look at the biggest changes to the trade value chart and some potential trade targets.
At this point, some people are ready to call Jordan Love “The Guy” in Green Bay. While the jury is still out for me, Love’s fantasy production is undeniable. This was highlighted last week when Love took on Patrick Mahomes and came out on top, scoring 23.7 fantasy points in the process.
This wasn’t a game where Love was carried by his defense or his offensive playmakers. Jordan Love simply beat Patrick Mahomes and made some phenomenal plays along the way.
Love’s Week 13 performance has him as the QB9 in 2023 and he has now scored 20+ fantasy points in three consecutive matchups.
Love’s success can largely be attributed to the Packers’ coaching staff having faith in the first-year starter. Love has now attempted 35+ passes in four of seven games since the bye and has had 40+ attempts in three of these games. The return of Christian Watson has also been a massive help to the Packers’ offense, especially in the red zone. Although Watson sustained a hamstring injury in Week 13, there is hope he will return as Green Bay’s red zone threat without missing much time.
The Packers now take on a string of attackable defenses in the Giants, Buccaneers, Panthers, and Vikings. Expect the Packers to continue to rely on Love’s arm to move the ball and productive fantasy performances to come along as well.
The Dolphins’ offense is arguably the most exciting offense we’ve seen this century but Tua Tagovailoa’s fantasy production doesn’t exactly line up with the offense’s production.
The Dolphins routed the Commanders on Sunday in a 45-14 victory. Despite the team eclipsing 40 points, Tua finished with 19.2 fantasy points, QB10 on the week. Somehow, Tua has failed to finish as a top-five quarterback since Week 7.
Miami has the ability to score early and often, taking Tua and the passing game out of the game earlier than expected. This was the case on Sunday, where the Dolphins led 31-7 at halftime, allowing De’Von Achane and the rushing attack to take over in the second half.
Unfortunately, the Dolphins’ final regular season games bring some less than ideal matchups for Tua. Miami closes out the season with Tennessee, the Jets, Dallas, and Baltimore. These are all above-average defenses that will be a much larger challenge than Washington’s secondary.
Tua is a must-start in most leagues, but don’t plan to rely on him for game-changing performances in the fantasy playoffs.
