Fantasy Football 2020: Top 10 Wide Receiver Trade Values

By Alex Kurpeski

 

Is your starting wide receiver nursing a hamstring injury? Well, join the club! If you need to swing a deal for a stud, then this is the article for you!

 

WR Trade Value (PPR Redraft)

1.DeAndre Hopkins, Arizona Cardinals

Trade Value = RB1, RB2 + WR2 + WR2, RB3 + WR1, TE1 + RB2

 

Hopkins has looked amazing for the Cardinals thus far, while also avoiding injuries to this point. 

 

2. Tyreek Hill, Kansas City Chiefs

Trade Value = RB1, RB2 + WR2 + WR2, RB3 + WR1, TE1 + RB2

 

Hill is the 1B to Hopkins’ 1A right now. He’s the highest upside receiver in the league. 

 

3. Chris Godwin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Trade Value = RB1, RB2 + WR2 + WR3, RB3 + WR1, TE1 + RB2

 

Godwin is slightly below Hill and Hopkins in terms of value, though that could change as he develops chemistry with Tom Brady. 

 

4. Mike Thomas, New Orleans Saints

Trade Value = RB1, RB2 + WR2 + WR2, RB3 + WR1, TE1 + RB2

 

Thomas’s ankle injury hurts his overall upside. 

5. Davante Adams, Green Bay Packers

Trade Value = RB1, RB2 + WR2 + WR2, RB3 + WR1, TE1 + RB2

 

Like Thomas, Adams’ hamstring injury hurts his case to be in the top tier. 

 

6. Calvin Ridley, Atlanta Falcons

Trade Value = RB1, RB2 + WR2 + WR2, RB3 + WR1, TE1 + RB2

 

Ridley is currently the WR1 overall, which lands him in this spot. 

 

7. Adam Thielen, Minnesota Vikings

Trade Value = RB1, RB2 + WR2 + WR2, RB3 + WR1, TE1 + RB2

 

Thielen lands in this category based on volume of targets. 

 

8. Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons

Trade Value = RB1, RB2 + WR2 + WR2, RB3 + WR1, TE1 + RB2

 

Jones lands in the second tier of receivers due to name value. 

 

9. Kenny Golladay, Detroit Lions

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

 

Golladay’s hamstring injury knocks him down quite a bit, but his upside keeps him in the top ten. 

 

10. D.K Metcalf, Seattle Seahawks

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

 

Metcalf has been a menace this season, torturing defensive backs through two weeks. He’s in store for a monster season and could rise up this board soon. 

 

WR Trade Value (PPR Dynasty)

 

1.Mike Thomas, New Orleans Saints

Trade Value = Two rookie first round picks + WR2 + RB3, One rookie first round pick + WR1 + RB3, RB1, RB2 + RB2 + WR3

 

Thomas broke an NFL record for receptions last season and he’s only 27. He’s the closest thing to untouchable as far as receivers go. 

 

2. Chris Godwin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Trade Value = Two rookie first round picks + WR2 + RB4, One rookie first round pick + RB2 + WR3, RB2 + WR1, RB2 + RB3 + WR2

 

Godwin’s youth (24 years old) and production from last season make him a great value in dynasty leagues. He’ll be tough to trade for or part with. 

 

3. Tyreek Hill, Kansas City Chiefs

Trade Value = Two rookie first round picks + WR2 + RB4, One rookie first round pick + RB2 + WR3, RB2 + WR1, RB2 + RB3 + WR2

 

Hill and Godwin are roughly equal values, as both players are a perfect hybrid of deep threat and slot receiver. 

4. Davante Adams, Green Bay Packers

Trade Value = Two rookie first round picks + WR3 + RB4, One rookie first round pick + RB2 + WR4, RB3 + WR1, RB3 + RB3 + WR2

 

Though receivers have a longer shelf life than running backs, they do trail off after the age of 30. That being said, trading for Adams is going to cost you, as he’s arguably the best receiver in the league when healthy. 

5. DeAndre Hopkins, Arizona Cardinals

Trade Value = Two rookie first round picks + WR3 + RB4, One rookie first round pick + RB2 + WR4, RB3 + WR1, RB3 + RB3 + WR2

 

Like Adams, Hopkins is nearing 30. He’s also a bonafide WR1 on a pass-happy offense. 

 

6. Calvin Ridley, Atlanta Falcons

Trade Value = One rookie first round pick + RB2 + WR3, WR1 + WR3, WR2 + WR2 + RB3, TE1 + RB3 + WR2

 

Ridley is ascending in his third season and he’s only 25 years old. 

 

7. D.K Metcalf, Seattle Seahawks

Trade Value = One rookie first round pick + RB2 + WR3, WR1 + WR3, WR2 + WR2 + RB3, TE1 + RB3 + WR2

 

Metcalf is making the leap in his second season. 

 

8. Kenny Golladay, Detroit Lions

Trade Value = One rookie first round pick + RB2 + WR3, WR1 + WR3, WR2 + WR2 + RB3, TE1 + RB3 + WR2

 

Golladay is another rising star at the position who is worth his weight in picks + prospects. 

 

9. D.J Moore, Carolina Panthers

Trade Value = One rookie first round pick + RB2 + WR3, WR1 + WR3, WR2 + WR2 + RB3, TE1 + RB3 + WR2

 

Youth + upside + production. 

 

10. Terry McLaurin, Washington Football Team

Trade Value = One rookie first round pick + RB2 + WR3, WR1 + WR3, WR2 + WR2 + RB3, TE1 + RB3 + WR2

 

Once again, youth + upside + production.
