The dynasty trade value chart is tailored specifically to a 12-team PPR league that starts one quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end and a flex. It is meant to serve primarily as a guide for trades but is also a great resource during startup drafts. If the players and picks on each side of the trade offer add up to approximately the same number, the trade would be considered even. If you receive a trade offer that sends you players with a higher total number value than the players you are giving up, that is a trade offer worth strongly considering.
This pre-training camp version of the trade chart is broken up by position and into colored tiers. Within a tier, each player's value is relatively close. In the higher tiers at each position, the trade price should include a premium for the owner getting a bump up into a higher tier.
Definitions for each number:
2017- This number represents the player's expected value for the 2017 season (approximated in terms of PPG above replacement0.
Future- The player's projected value in 2018 and beyond.
Value- The player's overall dynasty trade value. This number combines both the short-term (2017) and long-term vuture value.
