PRO Trashman’s 2018 Week 17 Flex Rankings (RB, WR, TE)

Trashman HeaderOften times, there is nothing tougher (or more important) than deciding who your weekly flex-plays are. It can be a mind-numbing experience having to make cross-positional projections.

This season, our RosterWatch PRO community will have personal and exclusive access to our very own disgusting Trashman, who has carefully curated his personal weekly flex rankings in order to help you in gaining input about your roster decisions.

We will not have official rankings this week, so use these if your league has a Week 17 (psssssttt — it shouldn’t) or ask your questions in the comments section for the boys to answer. Also, make sure to check in closer to lineups locking Sunday as Trashman will likely have to update this list with news coming out of players sitting, etc.

(Based on .5 PPR scoring).

    Thank you to Roster Watch!

    With your help, I completed the ultimate goal and am champion of my keeper league. In the process, I went 14-1 (my only loss coming on an IDP midweek stat correction), secured the first overall seed, a first round bye and set my league’s all-time records for season points and points per week. But here’s the kicker…

    I get to keep Patrick Mahomes in the 15th round next year, because I drafted him late.
    I get to keep James Conner in the 14th round next year, because I drafted him late.
    I get to keep Alvin Kamara in the 10th round next year, because I drafted him late in his rookie season and kept him in the 15th this year.

    I am also on track to win a $100 buy-in season-long dfs friends league on FanDuel. I have put up 3 weeks on FanDuel with over 180 points, 1 of which was 210 points.

    I have been a pro member now for two years. The staff at Roster Watch gives us all the tools to be successful. It’s incumbent upon us to use those tools to our advantage. I did not follow the draft rankings to the letter, but I used their insight to see who I should expect to target late (Mahomes) and who I should avoid early (LeSean McCoy). It’s all here for you.

    Thank you, Roster Watch!

    By these rankings, I should play Damien and Jamaal Williams along with Dalvin Cook and bench Chubb and Ware. Hard to bench Chubb.

    Why is week 17 rankings still showing week 16 match ups?

      It’s normally after about 5pm that the current week comes up. I hope we’re getting week 17 cheat sheets. We pay for them.

  5. Week 17 championships (yes-I know, should’ve been last week) I have the Bears defense, but I am concerned they may rest their D early, so I picked up giants defense. I am down by 23 in 1pt PPR so every pt counts. Any advice would be great!

    I don’t see any of the Week 17 DFS tools except for your FLex rankings Trash. Are they going to be posted for this week? Thx

      Doesn’t look like it. I cancelled. Busiest week of DFS there is because of most leagues being done and these guys take it off. Nothing wrong with that, unless you’re charging money for content.

  7. I guess SEC WR scouting is why none of the tools are available…

  8. I wanted to thank RosterWatch for another great season. I made the playoffs in all 3 of my leagues, placing 2nd and 3rd in 2 of them. Unfortunately, I lost my championship game by .4 with Pettis getting injured, my kicker missing an extra point, and 2 starters losing fumbles after a dominant season. How do you guys wrap your heads around this type of fantasy loss? Looking forward to your offseason intel and training camp coverage.

  9. Thanks to Trashman for QB help at the end of the season. In 2 leagues. Won both. Appreciate continued content this week and beyond from Roster Watch as I do play daily fantasy football and have a post season draft next week.
