Week 4 Rankings: Standard | PPR

Three weeks into the season and the wide receiver position hasn't turned out exactly like we thought. Each of the "big three" has had at least one awful game so far and the top 10 includes four players who weren't taken before Round 5 in most drafts (Larry Fitzgerald, Marvin Jones, Doug Baldwin, Stefon Diggs) and a guy who was barely drafted at all (Mike Wallace).

Even more stunning, only two receivers have posted 10-plus Fantasy points (standard scoring) in every game so far this season: Mike Evans, who's a stud of course, and Sterling Shepard.

Aside from Evans, which of these receivers will trail off and should be traded immediately?

In non-PPR formats, Marvin Jones is the highest-scoring receiver in the game. It's thanks to a monster Week 3 where he caught six passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns. He can't keep that up, but he can definitely continue to do damage on the eight-plus targets he's had in every game so far (some in the mid-range, some on deep passes). With 408 yards, he's on track for a breakout season, but he's also coming off of a career-game. Jones will carry high value because he's the No. 1 receiver in a pass-heavy offense. That doesn't mean you shouldn't consider offers for him, but don't hustle him off after this big game for mediocre talent.

Fair deal: Marvin Jones and Frank Gore for Todd Gurley and Will Fuller

Few would pony up a big offer for Baldwin, and few would trade him away without getting something big in return. It kind of limits his Fantasy movement even though he's had two games already with at least 15 Fantasy points. A lot is up in the air regarding Baldwin's future -- Russell Wilson's health, the status of the Seahawks offensive line and what impact Jimmy Graham could have. It could all work in Baldwin's favor, or it could cost Baldwin quality targets. Chances are you'll keep Baldwin as a No. 2 Fantasy receiver.

Last week was the first time we saw John Brown and Michael Floyd play prominently in the Cardinals offense, and Fitzgerald was held in check. To be fair, Carson Palmer was completely neutralized and wound up being ineffective, which obviously hurt Fitz as well. No one can deny Fitzgerald is Palmer's top target -- he's led the team in that department every game this season. He's also just as big of a red-zone threat as David Johnson, which helps him. So one bad game shouldn't send people into a panic here. If anything, the door is slightly open for Fantasy owners to try and get him on the cheap.

Fair deal: Larry Fitzgerald for Melvin Gordon

Stefon Diggs

Now's not the time to trade Diggs. After a great start he was practically invisible in Week 3, garnering 40 yards and reminding us of his 2015 skid. Sam Bradford is to blame for that as he got off to an abysmal start (4 of 11 passing for 26 yards at halftime) and the Vikings had the ball for essentially 25 minutes of game clock. That didn't work in Diggs favor but his skill set and role in the Minnesota offense remains desirable. If you can trade for him at a discount, do it. If you own him, keep him unless someone overpays.

Fair deal: Stefon Diggs for Christine Michael

There aren't many Fantasy owners buying into Wallace as a reliable starter. Maybe it's because he's rarely been reliable. His first two games were great, but in Week 3 he finished fourth on the team in targets with sixth, catching three of them. Worse, he dropped a would-be 19-yard touchdown. At this point he's as feast-or-famine as Will Fuller, but when good matchups present themselves, Fantasy owners should want to take the risk. That's the case both this week and next week given who the Ravens play.

Fair deal: Mike Wallace for Matt Jones

The Giants rookie has been sensational, torching opponents for 14.6 yards per catch and helping Fantasy owners out with at least 10 points per week. For now he's a safe starter since he'll almost always see single coverage with Odell Beckham on the field, but there's always that risk of hitting a rookie wall around Week 10 or 11. The timing is right to sell high on Shepard knowing his ceiling is about what he's delivered over the last three weeks, and it's a certainty he won't keep it up all year long.

Fair deal: Sterling Shepard for Jordan Matthews

What are the Trade Values? The chart is designed to help guide you in making fair trades in your standard-scoring or PPR leagues. The values assigned to the players below are a long-term measurement of their Fantasy value. By adding two players' values you could determine what one player you should be able to get in return. This list also works as a "Rest of Season" rankings. Also, any player not on the chart should be considered valued at no more than four points.
