Trade Analyzer

Last Updated: 10-28-2016

Below is FFPrep’s Trade Analyzer.  Enter players you are trading away on the left and receiving on the right.  You can enter draft picks using “Pick ” and the draft pick number you are trading away or receiving.  This tool works best when you are trading the same number of players.

Trading Away 1: Receiving 1:
Trading Away 2: Receiving 2:
Trading Away 3: Receiving 3:
Trading Away 4: Receiving 4:

  1. Hey Mark,

    Awesome website! I’m in 7 leagues (1st place in 3 of them) and am ALWAYS looking for that edge through stats and i have to say that I love the fantasy football tools. You have a great life Mark, you trade and run a ff site, that to me is the American Dream.

    Great job!


  2. Bug? Mark it’s like an obsession. It’s just like trading..sell high, buy low n finding “gems” before anyone knows their name.

    Just yesterday I was telling my wife that Matthew Berry (ESPN Fantasy) has the best job in the world! I honestly don’t know how you find the time, given that you trade, but you’ve done a great job Mark.

    One of the few recommendations is being able to adjust the the analyzer based on specific scoring settings for a league, e.g PPR & non PPR.


  3. The calculator says I shouldn’t trade demarco murray and antonio brown for ray rice because I lose 16 points and should decline the trade. Problem with this is ray rice is projected for 185 and murray and brown projected for 201 combined. That makes it a trade that would be great for me because Rice will score almost as many points as it takes 2 players to achieve. Seems to be a flaw in the system.

  4. Brian – Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I haven’t been able to re-create that issue so it should be all set.

  5. Brian I just entered Demarco Murray and Antonio Brown on the left and Ray Rice on the right and because Murray and Brown had more projected points, it said to decline the trade (180 vs 161). Make sure you are putting your players in the left box and the player you are receiving in the right box.

  6. Brian…Clearly the tool is set up to tell you to accept if point total is higher and decline if it is lower. Even if the difference is only -1 pt it will tell you to decline.

    As it says above….
    “Remember this is a tool that assumes you are starting everyone involved. If you have Tom Brady and you are trading away Carson Palmer, the Trade Analyzer does not know that you have Brady and may give you results you didn’t expect. Use this as a tool, not an end-all-decision-maker.”

    You have to use your own common sense to use the information for your team. Its just giving you an idea of what you are giving up and what you are potentially getting.

    In your scenario, since you are giving up 2 (RB & WR) and getting 1 (RB). It would make sense to make the trade despite losing pts if you had someone to start in place of the WR you are giving up. My guess is Brown is a situational play for you and you have some depth at WR, so this trade would probably leave you with 2 good RB’s and 3 startable WR’s. In that case, Accept! However, If it leaves you with 2 good RB’s and only 2 Startable WR’s and noone to use for your Flex, you may want to think a little bit about accepting. Depth and Consistancy out way having one Stud.

    With all of that being said, I think offloading a injury concern RB on a struggling offense with a WR 2/3 for a fantasy stud RB1 is probably a no brainer for you

  7. you trade analyzer is not updated. How can it project that Jordy Nelson would only have 11 points for the season in 2012. He has had a ton of points already this year. You need to update your stuff

  8. i cant seem to access the trade tool. should i make this trade:

    jordy nelson and darren sproles for reggie bush?

    i would be receiving bush…

    1. Chesse- We’ll update FFPrep tomorrow with all of the Week 5 points. At this point, it would depend on your running back situation. If you are relying on Darren Sproles as your #1, I wouldn’t make the trade.

  9. I lost foles and was offered Sanchez for Jimmy Graham….We start 2 Qb’s so having quality Qb’s is big…I still have Kap and Mettenberger… Was also offered Stafford and Witten for Graham and K. Allen….WE dont play H2H its total team points for the entire year…PPR league as well…..Start WR/TE together…


    1. I don’t like either of those trades. Graham is too valuable to trade away for lower end QB2s. Is there anything else available on the wire? Is Mallett available? Otherwise, could you move Keenan Allen for someone like Alex Smith or Eli Manning? Good luck

  10. Hey FFPrep,
    I’m surprised to see T.Y. Hilton ranked well below Jeremy Maclin. That’s a pretty unpopular opinion. Emmanuel Sanders is ranked pretty low as well. Could you explain your reasoning a bit there? Thanks!

    1. Hi Paul,

      They are both WR2s to Johnson and Thomas vs. Maclin being a WR1. I like Sanders a lot, and see T.Y. and Maclin as equals. Hope this helps and thanks for your input.

  11. Is trading Tannehill, Maclin and Forsett for Dez Bryant, Winston and McCoy worth it? I know Dez is injured right now but has upside for the playoff stretch. I play in a 10-team standard scoring league.

  12. Hi Luke. I like the trade. If you have another QB, then I love the trade. If this is a keeper / dynasty league then there are other considerations, but on the surface it’s a good trade for you.

    1. Yeah I have Tom Brady and at Running back I also have Adrian Peterson, Abdullah, Coleman and waiting for Arian Foster to come back from injury. I have Brown, Hilton and Terrance Williams until Dez returns. I’m not too sure about McCoy though, do you think his upside is greater than Forsett’s?

  13. Sammy Watkins was just dropped onto the waiver wire, is he a consideration for WR2 or should I go with Maclin, John Brown? Or wait to see what T.y. Hilton’s status is for Monday?

      1. Well my RBs are Peterson, Hyde, Yeldon, and Duke Johnson.
        My WRs are Mike Evans, Green, Edelman, Quick, Charles Johnson, and Breshad Perriman.

  14. someone offered me DeMarco Murray and Vincent Jackson for Frank Gore and Karlos Williams…

    a problem is I have Mike Evans on my roster..

    Should I take this offer?

  15. I just ran a trade through the analyzer.
    Giving : Maxx Williams – 28 points for rest of season
    Getting: Antonio Gates – 14 points for rest of season
    It tells me NOT to make the trade.

    Could you tell me why you have Gates projected so low?


    1. Hi Robert – I’ll take a look. The projections are based on preseason projections coupled with recent performance. With Gates out, the projection just needs to be adjusted.

  16. Call me crazy if talking trades after being 3-0, but I and have had alot of interest in Forte. I feel forte may lose value with other rb’s getting reps for the future on top of the bears always playing from behind. Keep in mind i have Bell and Freeman/Coleman as well. But Absolutely no Wr’s..Golden tate, Adams, and Kendall Wright are my only wide outs.

    Does it benefit me enough in return to trade away Matt Forte and Martavus Bryant for Andre Ellington and Demaryus Thomas?

    Is Andre Ellington the prefferred piece over C.J. Anderson. According to your analyzer Andre will end with the better year. Most other places I’ve looked has CJ valued higher than ellington.

    Should i make the trade? and for whihc RB Ellington or Anderson?

    QB: Palmer, RB1; L Bell RB2: Forte Flex: Freeman/Coleman WR1: Tate wr2: Kendall Wright WR3(Bench): D Adams TE!: Reed and Witten…Cardinals Defense. Martavus Bryant, Deangelo williams and Rishard Matthews on Bench.


    1. First of all congratulations on a nice start. I don’t think you should make that trade. I agree that Forte is a risk, but I’d always prefer a good RB to WR. You should be able to pick up some depth at WR in free agency – is agholor available? You may be able to trade Adams and Bryant in a package. Good luck!

  17. I just lost J. Charles in my PPR league. Should I trade Gore and A. Cooper for Eddie Lacy and Brandin Cooks? I’m a little worried about Lacy and Cooks’ production, but I feel like they’ll bounce back. Thoughts?


    1. Hi Brad – I’d make this trade. I like Cooper, but I think you’re right about a bounce back for Lacy and Cooks. I obv like Lacy more than Gore.

  18. I have Adrian Peterson, Arian Foster, Justin Forsett and LeSean McCoy as my RB. Should I try and make a trade to get Matt Forte, Marshawn Lynch, or Eddie Lacy? Or should I just keep the running backs? I’m pretty reluctant to get rid of All Day but would any other top running back be worth it?

    1. Hi Luke – If you can trade Forsett, I’d make the trade. Also – how many RBs can you start? Would your team be better off trading Forsett for a top tier WR?

  19. got an offer:

    Trading away: Tom Brady, Latavius Murray, and Jeremy Maclin

    Receiving: Philip Rivers, Jeremy Hill, Amari Cooper, and Derek Carr.

    My RB’s are Jonathon Stewart, Ronnie Hillman, Ryan Matthews, and Latavius Murray.

    My Wr’s are Odell Beckham Jr., Julio Jones, Steve Smith Sr., and Jeremy Maclin.

    I feel I should decline the trade but see that the schedule gets harder for both Brady and Murray. What do you think?

    1. I would decline this trade. The only player you are getting that I really like is Cooper so if you want to slim it down to Maclin and Stewart or Mathews for Cooper, I’d make that trade.

  20. I have Matt Ryan and would like to upgrade for final stretch.

    Would there be enough of an upgrade from Ryan to Drew Brees to make the following trade?

    Matt Ryan and Jeremy Hill
    Drew Brees

  21. Hi Jaime,

    it all depends on the owner you’re trading with. If they are in need of a RB, then I would say you have a good shot of getting this approved.

  22. Gidday,

    Greetings from Australia. How far off are you from updating the stats for the 2016 season? A couple of my leagues are already starting to trade before the draft, and I need to ensure I’m getting fair value. Plenty of offers for Osweiler coming my way!

    1. Hey Nick-

      We are moving to a new platform, but I’m hoping to get preliminary rankings / projections up in the next couple weeks. Thanks for support! What are the offers you’re contemplating?

        1. Nick, sorry for the delay. We just updated the Draft picks in the Trade Analyzer so you should be able to enter your trade requests now.

  23. Is there a specific format to use to enter draft picks for comparison? Are pick values dynasty rookie draft values or keeper/redraft pick values?

  24. Derek – sorry for the delay, but we’ve been working to update the Trade Analyzer to include draft picks. The format is “Pick 1” without the quotes. Picks are based on a keeper/redraft format.

  25. Hey,

    Looking to strengthen my run game, looking to trade Amari Cooper and Melvin Gordon (or Demarco Murray) for Michael Crabtree and Eddie Lacy. Do you think this trade could go through if I were to send the offer?


    1. Hey Chris,

      I’d rather have Cooper and Murray than Crabtree and Lacy so I wouldn’t do this trade. I think if you offered it, the other owner would probably accept. If you’re dead set on the trade try to make it work with Cooper and Gordon.

  26. Hello,
    I’m in a 10 team standard scoring league, and I’m being offered what I believe to be a great value.
    I’ve got D.Johnson, D.Williams, L.Murray, T. Rawls, and T.Coleman at RB,
    AJ.Green, J.Matthews, A.Hurns, K.White, and I just lost K. Allen for the year.

    I’m being offered either D.Hopkins or B.Cooks for Thomas Rawls.

    Too good to be true? Or is this guy just an idiot. BTW he is RB desperate.
    Every analyzer I’ve run the trade through is way lob sided to me, but I just wanted to be sure.
    Thanks for the help.

  27. Hello,

    I am getting an offer for Allen Robinson for Lesean McCoy. I am in a 14 team PPR league. Is this a fair trade? Or should I target someone better? I need RB help

    RBs I have Freeman, DeAngelo Williams, Deandre Washington, Tim Hightower

    WRS I have Maclin, Robinson, V. Jackson, Tajae Sharpe, Tyrel Williams and Josh Gordon.

    1. Hi aakash – I’d try to move V.Jackson for someone like Langford if you can get the deal done. I think you’re looking for a RB2. You can also try to move D. Williams if you can find someone interested in swapping RBs. Good luck.

  28. I’m having a TOUGH time. This is my potential trade:

    Send Eric Ebron, Det TE
    Send Jamaal Charles, KC RB
    Send Demaryius Thomas, Den WR.

    I get….

    Receive Thomas Rawls, Sea RB
    Receive Gary Barnidge, Cle TE
    Receive Jarvis Landry, Mia WR
    Receive T.J. Yeldon, Jax RB.

    I have:
    RB Latavius Murray, Oak
    RB Danny Woodhead, SD
    RB Justin Forsett, Bal
    WR Brandon Marshall
    WR Larry Fitzgerald, Ari.

    Would you advise the trade???

  29. Need some help with this trade.. guys let me know your thoughts please!
    Odell Beckham Jr
    Coby Fleeer

    Isaiah Crowell
    Randall Cobb
    Julius Thomas

    1. Birdman – I would decline this trade. I think you’re giving up the best player in the trade (ODB) and I’m still a believer in Fleener. Good luck!

  30. I am the commish in a 10 person work league using standard ESPN Scoring. I have a trade that a lot of people are asking me to veto (we do have a veto rule with 7 votes).

    Team 1
    Is trading away Tyrod Taylor, Arian Foster and Rashad jennings
    His team is
    Blake Bortles, Jax QB
    DeAngelo Williams, Pit RB
    Lamar Miller, Hou RB
    Allen Robinson, Jax WR Q
    Odell Beckham Jr., NYG WR
    Jason Witten, Dal TE
    C.J. Anderson, Den RB
    Chiefs D/ST D/ST
    Blair Walsh, Min K
    Tyrod Taylor, Buf QB
    John Brown, Ari WR
    Rashad Jennings, NYG RB Q
    Arian Foster, Mia RB D
    Brandon Marshall, NYJ WR Q
    Fozzy Whittaker, Car RB
    Coby Fleener, NO TE

    Team 2 is trading away Russel Wilson and Todd Gurley
    His team is
    Andy Dalton, Cin QB
    Todd Gurley, LA RB
    T.J. Yeldon, Jax RB
    Doug Baldwin, Sea WR Q
    Jeremy Maclin, KC WR
    Greg Olsen, Car TE
    Marvin Jones, Det WR
    Packers D/ST D/ST
    Justin Tucker, Bal K
    Doug Martin*, TB RB O
    Russell Wilson, Sea QB
    Martellus Bennett, NE TE
    Jay Ajayi, Mia RB
    Vincent Jackson, TB WR
    Patriots D/ST D/ST
    Mason Crosby, GB K

    Do you think this is a fair trade?

    1. Hi – I don’t like the trade, but I’m not one to veto a trade so I’d let it pass. I agree with the seven that someone is probably being taken advantage of here.

  31. I recently traded R.Cobb for T.Riddick. Then I packaged off B.Marshall/T.Riddick for DeAndre Hopkins….Good Trade?

    Here’s my team (Standard Scoring) ESPN – 10 Team
    D.Brees, K.Cousins, L.Bell, D.Williams (handcuff), M.Gordon, J.Hill, D.Hopkins, A.Cooper, J.Maclin, M.Floyd, J.Gordon, T.Kelce, E.Ebron, Cardinals D/ST……Redskins HC.

    1. Hi Randy – I think that’s a great trade. You dealt Cobb and Marshall for Hopkins. I think Hopkins and Brock will figure it out. Good luck!

  32. Curious as to what the calcualtion is behind it saying I should take this trade: I receive Landry and Ertz, give away McCoy/Reed, non-ppr.

    Player Team Position Projected Points Projected PPR
    Jordan Reed WAS TE 126 195
    LeSean McCoy BUF RB 163 191
    Jarvis Landry MIA WR 160 248
    Zach Ertz PHI TE 87 153

    1. Hi Neil – this is based on the projections for the remainder of the season which is a combination of the players performance to date and the schedule. It is also based on PPR. This trade looks close enough that you would want to decide if it makes sense for your team. Thanks

      1. Thanks. This is my current team and wanted to capitalize on the WRs since it is my weakest position on my team.

        QBs- Rodgers and Dalton
        RBs- Gurley, CJ Aderson, G. Bernard, J. Forsett, O. Darkwa,
        WRs- Edelman, Cobb, Snead, John Brown, Beasley
        TEs- Kelce, Bennett
        K- Tucker
        DST- Bengals

        Do you suggest any sleeper picks to upgrade my team? I’m dropping Forsett here in a few.

        1. I’d try to move Forsett, Darkwa, Brown, and/or Bennett to upgrade a receiver spot. I’d keep your other players. Corey Coleman looks like the real deal if you can wait for him.

    1. Hi Travis, this is an interesting trade. I like Brady over Palmer and Evans over Decker. If I had Brady and Decker, I’d probably stick with them. It is very close. Good luck!

  33. Trade offer to:
    Given up Julio Jones and Eddie Lacy
    Getting: Hopkins, Lamar Miller, and Greg Olsen

    This is a PPR 12 team lg and my team is the following:
    QB: Bortles and Carr
    WR: Julio, Edleman, Decker, and Wheaton
    RB: Lacy, Theo Riddick, Christian Michael, Thomas Rawls
    TE: Walker and Tamme
    Kicker: Crosby
    Def: Minnesota

    Do I take the trade?

    1. Hi Steven- I would decline the trade. At first glance I liked it, but you would be tied to the Texans offense with Hopkins and Miller. Good luck!

  34. Hi Travis,

    Hoping to get your advice, was offered the following trade and I’m really torn:

    Trading away-
    Jordan Matthews & Jamaal Charles
    Get back-
    Amari Cooper & Kyle Rudolph

    Matthews is my #1 right now and my current TE is Eric Ebron. Your thoughts?

    1. Hi Eric- I would decline this trade. You would be trading away a starting RB and receiving a starting TE, which would be concerning. Good Luck!

  35. Hi,

    I have the following team – .5 PPR, 10 Team, 2 player keeper league

    QB – Luck and Cousins
    RB – Gurley, Ingram, Crowell Yeldon
    WR – OBJ, A. Robinson, Edelman, Pryor and Smith Sr
    TE – Miller, Rudolph
    Def – Rams
    K – Vinitari
    I.R. – Peterson

    I am looking to get Julio Jones, should I trade the following?

    Gurley and Pryor

    Jones and Lacy

    1. Hi Matthew- I think that trade leaves you weak at RB in a 10 team league, but if you want Julio that should get it done. Good luck

      1. Thanks a ton! As much as I wanted Julio Jones, I agree with you completely. I have decided to decline the trade and roll with the squad I have.

  36. Hey, you got an awesome site here! I’m in a 12 team ppr league.
    The trade is: Antonio Brown
    Kenneth Dixon
    Jamaal Charles
    Spencer Ware
    Demaryius Thomas
    I would be giving up Brown, but I’m in desperate need of another running back as the only useful rb’s I currently have are DeMarco Murray and Jerrick McKinnon. Should I green light it?

    I was offered this trade

    1. Hi Tom – thank you! I don’t think you should go for this trade. I’m a big believer in never giving up the best player in the trade and you would be doing that by giving up Antonio Brown. Jamaal Charles also concerns me. If you are desperate, it is probably fair, but I would decline. Thanks for visiting the site.

  37. Hi,

    I would be trading Jordan Howard for Jimmy Graham.

    My running backs consist of LeVeon Bell, David Johnson, Demarco Murray, with Gore and Howard on my bench. My tight ends are Fleener and Pitta. I thought I could use Graham for starpower and consistency since Howard is on my bench and Graham would be a start, but dont know if it is worth the trade. Depth is always nice and I dont want the opposing team getting a starting caliber back when he already has Greg Olsen. But mostly, Im torn between having a great starting tight end and giving up depth in case of injury.

    Any thoughts are appreciated.

    1. Hi Connor – it is tough to think you are giving up a starting RB for a TE, but you are loaded at RB so it makes sense. Is there a scenario where you could give up Pitta and Howard for Jimmy G and a RB? I think it’s worth it either way. Good luck!

      1. Unfortunately he has barnidge on his bench too so he doesnt need a backup tight end. Do you have faith fleener will show up with some consistency? Every week we read good things from their staff but its hard to have faith.

  38. Cool site. 12 team 1pt ppr

    My team:
    Doug Martin
    D. Hopkins

    J. McKinnon
    R. Jennings
    D. Washington (Det)
    Alfred Morris
    Jacquizz Rodgers
    Steve Smith, Sr.
    Cole Beasley

    I’ve been offered Julio Jones for LeSean McCoy. I love rolling Julio, Hopkins and Dez but it would leave my RBs a little shaky (even though I’ve got a ton of them)

    1. Hey Jake – I like the idea too. Having Julio, Hopkins and Dez would be great. Does the other team have a RB you could poach if you included Jennings or Snead? Either way, I would accept the trade. Good luck!

      1. He’s got a bunch of iffys that he’s disenchanted with, which is why he wants McCoy. He’s got T. West (who after the last game, he’ll probably keep), Matt Jones (ditto) (both are his starters), then he has Jeremy Hill, DeAngelo Williams and Chris Ivory.

        I’d add Snead or Jennings in two seconds if it brought back Hill but the other two are dogmeat. I don’t think he’d include Hill. He’s already a very conservative trader who doesn’t like to expand deals to fill holes and balance value. Which brings me back to the original question…..You’d still do it straight up even if it meant me hoping for a pulled hammy at RB to compete in this league (I have an Elliott voodoo doll but my spells aren’t working yet)

  39. I need roster help this week (please and thank you).
    Starters: D.Brees, L.Bell, M.Gordon, J.Maclin, J.Nelson, T.Kelce, J.Hill (Flex), Cardinals D/ST & M.Crosby
    Bench: G.Bernard, J.Ajayi, D.Hopkins, C.Merredith, D.Williams (handcuff), M.Mariota, Q.Enunwa, Bills D/ST

    Would you make any changes to the starting line-up for Week 7? I’m 2-4 and desperately need a win!

    1. Hi Randy, I would start Hopkins over Maclin (you don’t sit your superstars). You could consider Ajayi over Hill as well. Good luck!

  40. Nice site! Need help with a trade offer in my 12 team, PPR league.

    My Team:
    Antonio Brown
    Mike Evans
    W. Snead
    A. Hurns
    L. Murray
    T. Coleman
    R. Mathews
    D. Booker
    H. Henry

    I’m considering a trade of Antonio Brown and Latavius Murray for Emmanuel Sanders and David Johnson.
