Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 11
Here’s this week Grab, full of all the disgusting vitamins and minerals a growing trashman needs. Enjoy
Joe Flacco, Ravens: Flacco threw the ball 52 times in his last game, and that was before Danny Woodhead came back into the fold. Flacco shouldn’t have much trouble finding his pass-catchers against the Packers this Sunday.
Samaje Perine, Redskins: Perine hasn’t achieved a modicum of the success he found in college, but opportunity presents him with a chance to be the first 2-down back for Washington with Rob Kelley sidelined. Chris Thompson will be the funnel of the offense, no doubt, but Perine stands to see multiple goal line carries in what could be a high-scoring game.
T.J. Yeldon, Jaguars: Leonard Fournette is questionable, and the Jaguars seem confident that they can win without him. Should Fournette sit, previous similar scenarios indicate that Yeldon, not Ivory, is the preferred back. It won’t be an easy day for Jaguar runners, but Yeldon’s ability to catch passes helps his chances.
Eddie Lacy, Seahawks: Lacy isn’t anybody’s idea of a primary back, but the Seahawks are trying to move away from a committee and Thomas Rawls.
Bruce Ellington, Texans: Ellington has had 8 targets a game over the last two weeks, and Fuller is out. We’ve learned that when facing the Cardinals, as the Texans are, the ball goes to whoever is not up against shutdown corner Patrick Peterson. Ellington is that guy.
Mike Wallace, Ravens: I admit that I like Jeremy Maclin more against the soft Packers secondary this week, but Maclin isn’t available in most leagues. Wallace is, and he’s a bigger deep threat.
Kenny Golladay, Lions: Golladay is back in action after a long absence, and he’s already taking targets away from a recently stellar Marvin Jones Jr. Things won’t come easy against Chicago, but Golladay is a good bet for at least a TD.
Dontrelle Inman, Bears: Inman came into his first game as a Bear last week and led the Bears in receiving and tied for most targets(8) with Kendall Wright. Wright isn’t cutting the mustard as the top dog in Chicago and it’s Inman’s turn to give it a shot as QB Mitch Trubisky improves under center.
Tavarres King, Giants: Recent news that Sterling Shepard is unlikely to go makes King an intriguing flyer this week. Low Floor, high upside.
Mercedes Lewis, Jaguars: Lewis has the best matchup of all Jaguar offensive players, as the Browns have a weakness covering tight ends. Lewis’ value is tied into his red-zone looks, but the Browns are 31st in TDs allowed to TEs.
