This past weekend was like a splash of cold water to the face, and the SCFE staff’s Week 3 Fantasy Football rankings will prove that out.

Zero RB theorists were dancing in the streets by Monday night, after seeing Todd Gurley put up another stinker to start 2016, and Adrian Peterson get helped into the locker room after tearing the meniscus under his kneecap. Yet, the owners of Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr. and A.J. Green weren’t exactly doing a jig either.

As a matter of fact, mid-to-late-round wide receivers like Stefon Diggs, Travis Benjamin, Corey Coleman and Mike Wallace were among the highest scorers in Week 2.

The point is – don’t overreact from this past weekend’s output just yet. If you’re holding Gurley, you can bet you’re going to be inundated with several trade offers. If you lost Adrian Peterson for half the season, don’t give up the farm just to get another player that could get injured just as easily. Try to spread out the risk a bit, trading a star WR for a good WR and a good RB. Those types of deals can be made.

Use Dave Richard’s Trade Value Chart over at CBSSports.com, and make some offers on your own. That chart is nice because it’s a good link to relay along with your trade to show your prospective trade partner how good this trade lines up for them.
