Editor's note: is hosting a one-week long $350,000 Fantasy Football contest for Week 5. It's only $10 to join and first prize is $30,000. Starts Sunday, October 5th at 1 p.m. ET. Enter now to play with Dave.

LeSean McCoy was the preferred first overall pick in Fantasy drafts by some this summer. After leading the league in rushing and playing in a frenetic offense that maximizes the effectiveness of their running backs, why wouldn't McCoy be popular?

But through four games, McCoy has looked more like LeSean Astin, averaging 2.7 yards per carry (192 yards on 70 carries) with a touchdown and another 64 yards on 10 catches. Jamaal Charles has more touchdowns in almost two fewer games. Matt Asiata had more touchdowns in Week 4 alone. Steven Jackson has a better rushing average.

It's a nightmare, but is it forever? That depends on what every individual owner sees in McCoy. Over the last two weeks we've all seen a running back play behind a patchwork offensive line and get zip in the way of receptions. In the two weeks prior, they saw a back with explosiveness pick up over 100 total yards per game with a score -- behind a mostly first-string offensive line and against two weak defenses.

Philadelphia has some tough matchups coming up, but at least it is getting back starting right tackle Lane Johnson this week. That will definitely help. So might a re-dedication to McCoy after playing him on 100 of 134 snaps over the last two weeks (call it the Sproles effect after Sproles' red-hot start to the season). Head coach Chip Kelly proclaimed McCoy healthy this week, so no injury can be blamed.

Has the time come to part with McCoy? There wouldn't be a shortage of Fantasy owners interested in trading for McCoy in every league, myself included. I'd rather have McCoy than not have him. The key to the equation is what people would be willing to give up for him -- as you'll see, some trades are worth making if you're giving up McCoy.

Let's see who's moved what for McCoy after four weeks in leagues.

LeSean McCoy for Donald Brown and Philip Rivers: Well, some people have already made up their minds and think McCoy is going to be a bust. Brown's done nothing to impress this season and while Rivers is great, he's not considered quite as valuable as a potential No. 1 Fantasy running back. Someone got real lucky to get McCoy.

LeSean McCoy for Zac Stacy: Another owner has given up on McCoy and opted to try his or her luck with Stacy. Bad move.

LeSean McCoy for C.J. Spiller: This is just quitting on the season.

LeSean McCoy and Pierre Garcon for Kelvin Benjamin: No one's higher on Benjamin than I am, but this is bad even for a dynasty league.

LeSean McCoy and Andrew Luck for Brandon Marshall and Peyton Manning: Here's a trade where the owner giving away McCoy made a good move. Marshall's been underwhelming over the last two weeks but in the end should still finish as a Top 5 or 10 Fantasy receiver. Can we say the same about McCoy? The quarterbacks are basically a wash -- at least Peyton's already had his bye and played his toughest game on the schedule.

LeSean McCoy for Wes Welker, Mike Wallace and Trent Richardson: The chart says it's too much for McCoy, but it's still one of the ugliest trades ever. How can anyone feel good about getting Welker and Richardson knowing just how much risk there is to them? Wallace has gotten off to a great start but is he even the best player in this trade? It's a flaming dumpster fire for Shady.

LeSean McCoy and Julio Jones for Marshawn Lynch: Overpaying for Lynch -- I'd make this deal in a heartbeat if I had Beast Mode.

LeSean McCoy for Frank Gore and Eric Decker: Finally, a passable deal. Breaking up McCoy for a startable running back and receiver is a move worth making.

The Trade Value Chart is designed to help you in making fair trades in your standard-scoring or PPR league. 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 might be able to get in return. This list should also work as a "Rest of Season" Rankings.
