Watch Now: Astros, Athletics Suspensions Come Down From Sunday Altercation (6:08)

The updated Trade Chart for Head-to-Head Fantasy baseball points leagues now features three starting pitchers in the top five — and that's independent of the meteoric rises of Aaron Nola and Trevor Bauer, who are both now in the top 20 among all players. Starting pitcher remains a particularly valuable asset for this format, and it's time to buy these early-season stars.

A few guidelines for implementing this chart in your trade discussions:

  1. These values are tailored for standard CBS Head-to-Head points leagues, meaning 12 teams and 21-man rosters. The low-dollar players would be worth more in a deeper league, and the mid-dollar players would be worth less in a shallower league.
  2. These values are intended only for 1-for-1 and 2-for-1 trades. Get into 3-for-1 or, heaven forbid, 4-for-1, and the impending roster crunch makes it near impossible to justify giving up the superior player (unless, of course, it's an obvious overpay).
  3. These values are more of a rough guideline. In theory, if two players add up to more than some other player, you'll take the two over the one, but not every possible scenario has been vetted. And particularly with the lower-value players, perceptions are changing constantly. When in doubt, you'll want to stick with the better player.
