Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 10
Things are looking up for dedicated dumpster divers, as this week’s grab is stocked with upside plays. Pick ’em up and play ’em before it’s too late…
Ryan Fitzpatrick, Buccaneers: RW nation can always appreciate a good revenge game scenario, and we certainly have it with Fitzpatrick going up against his former team. It helps his cause that the Jets have allowed more TDs than any team in the league.
Devontae Booker, Broncos: The game script makes for a Booker heavy scenario in which the Broncos fall behind early and have to throw to stay in it. Brock Osweiler isn’t the most accurate or strong armed QB, so that means dump-offs and backfield passes, which Booker excels at.
Elijah McGuire, Jets: McGuire has flourished in games where he only has to deal with Bilal Powell splitting snaps, and he gets that in Week 10 against a powderpuff Tampa defense.
Rex Burkhead, Patriots: Burkhead is finally healthy in a matchup against Denver that puts the onus on slot-receivers and pass-catching backs. The fact that the Pats are minus Chris Hogan sends more targets his way too.
Marquise Goodwin, 49ers: Goodwin has the speed to break a big play at any moment, and he’s in line to see double-digit targets against the reeling Giants this week as San Fran’s “no.1” receiver.
Curtis Samuel, Panthers: Samuel has surpassed Russell Shepard as the 3rd option behind Devin Funchess and Christian McCaffrey in Carolina, and he might just be the best big play threat of all of them. He gets a stout but beatable Miami secondary on Monday night.
Philip Dorsett, Patriots: Dorsett has been talked up recently by the Patriots staff, and he finally has a chance to get some run with Chris Hogan on the sideline. He’ll get his shots on Sunday.
Cole Beasley, Cowboys: I feel an upswing for Beasley on the horizon as the Cowboys try to use the short pass like the run in an attempt to mitigate the loss of Ezekiel Elliott. Atlanta defends the outside well, so Beasley should see plenty of targets Sunday.
Charles Clay, Bills: Clay is back to action, and though Kelvin Benjamin is sure to take some targets, he’ll retain TE1 status.
C.J. Fiedorocwiz, Texans: Fiedo is healthy after a long absence and just in time. Ryan Griffin has been sent to I.R., making Fiedo the go-to TE in Houston these days. He’ll make for a nice safety blanket for Tom Savage.
