Fantasy Baseball H2H Trade Chart: Fitting Zack Cozart and Elvis Andrus into the latest top 200

Your willingness to part with a player in a trade is typically a reflection of your confidence in him.

That's not all it is, of course. Just because you have a clearer idea who Eric Hosmer is than Michael Conforto doesn't mean you'd pay more for Hosmer than Conforto. But generally speaking, you value what you trust.

But that's not a luxury you can afford at shortstop. The position has its share of standouts now, so you need to get production out of it just to keep pace. But it still doesn't have nearly enough standouts to go around in a 12-team league, which makes every Johnny-come-lately there valuable even before we know if he's reliable.

It's a phenomenon we experienced early this year with Chris Owings only to see him cool off the last few weeks. Now, it's all about Zack Cozart and Elvis Andrus, who both appear more sustainable than Owings. But Cozart, who's typically a low-BABIP guy, is currently sporting a .400 mark, so we don't know what kind of regression is coming. And Andrus has never demonstrated this kind of power (which hardly seem relevant with Yonder Alonso and Logan Morrison contending for the AL home run crown, but still).

If you're in a position to trade one, more power to you. As you can see from their trade values, pairing one with Ian Desmond or Corey Dickerson might be enough to land you a true ace.
