Fantasy Football Trade Values: Top 10 QBs (Week 4)

By Alex Kurpeski

Having a reliable QB for your fantasy team is always a plus. If you drafted Carson Wentz or Baker Mayfield to be the starting QB for your team this year then you’ve come to the right place. This column has been created to guide you and your team through the slippery slope of trading in both dynasty and redraft leagues. Each week I will be revising these lists and values, so stay tuned!

Top 10 QB Assets (1QB Redraft) 

  1. Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs

Trade Value = RB1, WR1 + RB3, RB2 + WR2, QB1 + WR2, RB2 + RB2

Mahomes is a guaranteed 25+ points per week. Most fantasy managers would not trade him, but if they would he’d be worth a lot. 

2. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens 

Trade Value = RB1, WR1 + RB3, RB2 + WR2, QB1 + WR2, RB2 + RB2

Like Mahomes, Jackson is a nearly untouchable asset due to his incredible upside week-to-week. 

3. Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals

Trade Value = WR1, RB2 + WR3, RB3 + WR2, TE1 + QB2, QB1 + WR3

Murray’s value will only continue to rise as he performs at the level he’s been at to start this season. His rushing upside gives him Lamar Jackson upside. 

4. Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks

Trade Value = WR1, RB2 + WR3, RB3 + WR2, TE1 + QB2, QB1 + WR3

Wilson is on pace to score 72 touchdowns this season. He won’t, but he will score 40+. Wilson has a great shot to finish as the QB1 overall. 

5. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

Trade Value = WR1, RB2 + WR3, RB3 + WR2, TE1 + QB2, QB1 + WR3

Allen’s recent play and rushing upside have him in the same tier as Wilson and Murray at this moment. He’s a legitimate MVP candidate for a surging Bills team. 

6. Cam Newton, New England Patriots

Trade Value = WR2, RB2, WR3 + WR2, RB3 + TE1, QB2 + RB3

Newton has been incredibly productive this season, though his health concerns keep him out of the Murray, Wilson, Allen tier. 

7. Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys

Trade Value = WR2, RB2, WR3 + WR2, RB3 + TE1, QB2 + RB3

Prescott’s upside is limited by the fact that Dallas has one of the best RBs in the game, though he still manages to produce when he needs to.  

8. Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans

Trade Value = WR2, RB2, WR3 + WR2, RB3 + TE1, QB2 + RB3

Watson has drawn some tough matchups this season. Watson and the Texans offense should bounce back down the stretch. He could be a nice buy-low candidate right now. 

9. Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons

Trade Value = RB3 + WR4, TE2 + WR3, QB2 + RB4, TE1

Here’s where the position trails off a bit. Ryan is excellent but he’s going to depend heavily on his defense not getting the job done. In 1QB leagues, he’s a nice guy to have but may not be worth trading for unless you’re really screwed at the position. 

10. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers

Trade Value = RB3 + WR4, TE2 + WR3, QB2 + RB4, TE1

Like Ryan, Rodgers’ upside will be rather game script dependent, though he’s a trustworthy top-ten option at this point. 

 

Top 10 QB Assets (1QB Dynasty)

 

  1. Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs

Trade Value = Multiple 1st round rookie picks, QB1 + RB2 + WR3, TE1 + WR2 + RB3, RB1 + Prospect

Mahomes is worth a first-round pick even in non-SuperFlex dynasty startups. 25+ points-per-game for a decade? Yeah, that’ll cost ya. 

2. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens

Trade Value = Multiple 1st round rookie picks, QB1 + RB2 + WR3, TE1 + WR2 + RB3, RB1 + Prospect

Jackson and Mahomes are the 1B and 1A of dynasty league quarterbacks. Both passers are under 25 years old and can be counted on for 20+ points each week. 

3. Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals

Trade Value: At least one 1st round rookie pick + WR2, RB2 + TE1, WR1, WR2 + WR2 + QB2

Murray is verging on Jackson/Mahomes territory (not to be confused with Jackson Mahomes). He’s a bonafide fantasy superstar at this point in his career, playing in an offense catered to all of his strengths. 

4. Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans

Trade Value = Rookie 1st round pick + RB3, RB2, WR2 + TE2, QB2 + WR3 + RB3

Watson is a terrific playmaker who’s a bit struggled this season. He’s still a great player to build around in dynasty leagues, as his upside is as high as any QB in the league when he’s rolling. 

5. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

Trade Value = Rookie 1st round pick + WR3, RB3 + WR3, WR2, TE1

Allen’s volatility keeps him out of Watson’s tier, but he’s a super high upside play at the QB spot most weeks. 

6. Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks

Trade Value = Rookie 1st round pick + WR3, RB3 + WR2, WR3 + QB2 + Rookie 2nd round pick, TE1 + RB3

Were he not on the wrong side of 30, Wilson would be much higher on this list. He’s been stellar once again this season. 

7. Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals

Trade Value = Rookie 1st round pick, RB3 + WR4, WR3 + RB4, TE2 + QB2

Burrow has the chance to be transcendent. He’s a stud and he should be valued like one. 

8. Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys

Trade Value = Multiple rookie 2nd round picks + RB4, RB4 + WR4, TE2 + WR3

Prescott is still pretty young and very productive. His unsettled contract situation hurts his overall value. 

9. Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams

Trade Value = Rookie 2nd round pick + WR4 + WR4, QB2 + RB5, TE2 + WR4

Goff is still young and plays in a QB friendly offense. He’s locked up for the next few seasons too so he’s not going anywhere. 

10. Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles

Trade Value = Rookie 2nd round pick + WR4 + WR4, QB2 + RB5, TE2 + WR4

Yeah, I know. I gave Wentz a hard time in the intro. While he’s struggled this season, Wentz’s upside is still extremely high and he should be valued like Goff in dynasty formats.
