Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 1
If you’re reading this, you’re probably in your league championship. If you’re in your league championship, you probably don’t need to dig to deep in the dumpster for streamers. That being said, here are some options for Week 16..
I can’t condone starting any of the lesser owned QBs this week unfortunately
Mike Gillislee, Patriots: With the recent news that James White will likely sit, in addition to Rex Burkhead already out, Gillislee makes for a decent play if he gets activated this week, which is likely. He and Dion Lewis will man the backfield against the Bills, the team that is the easiest to run on in the league.
Wayne Gallman, Giants: Gallman has regained the starting role from Orleans Darkwa, and he could be in for a lot of run this week, as Patrick Peterson could move to cover Sterling Shepard in the slot.
Kerwynn Williams, Cardinals: Williams is still waiting for a TD, but he’s getting decent yardage on the ground. He gets the Giants this week, who are at the back end of run defenses in the league. It’s his best matchup since taking over the backfield in Arizona.
Kendall Wright, Bears: For reasons unknown to me, Wright has gotten 24 targets over the past two weeks after averaging 3 over the previous three games. He’ll be a target hound against the weary Browns who bend to the pass.
Keelan Cole/Dede Westbrook/Jaydon Mickens: I like all of the Jags WRs this week in this order. Westbrook has been talked up, but Cole keeps outproducing him. Mickens was the star last week and should continue to see red-zone looks with regularity.
Tyrell Williams, Chargers: Williams had a season high 7 targets last week, and he should remain highly involved in the offense with Hunter Henry gone and Keenan Allen dealing with a back injury
Antonio Gates, Chargers: Gates gets free reign over the middle of the field now that Hunter Henry is out. He may have his best game of the season against the reeling Jets.
