Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 14
Nothing too trashy this week, as it is the first week of playoffs. Hopefully you don’t have to use any of these guys, but they’ll be available for you if you do…
Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers: Garoppolo gets a dream matchup versus a nonexistent Houston secondary. He passed for almost 300 yards last week against a good Chicago defense, and now he just needs to seal the deal on a few drives, which is very likely against Houston.
Mike Davis, Seahawks: Davis saw 16 carries and almost 75% of snaps last week against the Eagles and could see an even larger share of the load against the Jaguars, who can be run on and not much else.
Jonathan Stewart, Panthers: Stewart has been pretty TD dependent as of late, but he’s scored in 3 of his last 5 games and is getting double digit carries. A TD is what you’re depending on this week against a Vikings team that stifles yardage.
Mike Wallace, Ravens: Wallace is Baltimore’s most productive receiver. He’s also their only deep threat. I know the Ravens are playing Pittsburgh this week, but Wallace already scored on them in their first meeting. He’s a safe play with upside.
Dontrelle Inman, Bears: I know he’s always in here, but Inman remains unowned in most leagues, despite being the Bears best receiving option since he joined the team 4 weeks ago. He gets a Bengals defense this week that is without several key players in the secondary.
Dede Westbrook, Jaguars: Westbrook is another guy who has made repeat appearances and is getting double digit targets, yet he’s still overlooked in most leagues. He’s got a similar floor to Marqise Lee but higher upside, even against Seattle.
Stephen Anderson, Texans: Anderson came in last week and soaked up 5 of 12 targets on the way to a 79 yard, 1 TD game due to multiple injured receivers. The Texans are still in need of playmakers, so look for Anderson to fill a similar role.
Trey Burton, Eagles: This only works if Ertz sits, but Burton makes for a fine plug and play if he does. He got 7 targets last week when Ertz went down to a concussion, as the Eagles didn’t skip a beat without their breakout tight end.
