PRO Trashman’s 2019 Week 6 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. Please refer to the Rankings tab for our staff positional rankings.

(Based on .5 PPR scoring).

    Trashman I need your advice…. I’m in a 10 team standard 3WR 2RB 1 flex league

    RB: Kamara, Jacobs, Fournette, Coleman, Hyde, Gore
    WR: Julio, AJ green, Samuel, Landry, Dorsett

    Do you think I should trade Jacobs or Fournette for a WR1 straight up then start Coleman in my flex instead of Jacobs? or does my starting line up look better with Jacobs in my flex and I would be starting Landry and Samuel beside Julio until AJ green gets back? I feel like my top 3 RB’s could all be top 10 at their position when the season is over but obviously feel like I need to upgrade my WR’s…. just not sure what I should do

    1. Post By

      or would it be better to try and package Coleman or Hyde with Landry or Samuel to try and get a WR2?

      1. I prefer the second option, unless Julio doesn’t practice tomorrow and you really need the win. Then I would try to move jacobs.

  2. 12 team PPR. Am I crazy for wanting to play Christian Kirk over Robert Woods this week?

    1. it’s probably fine if he plays, we are waiting for more word before ranking him, but please check back closer to time.

  3. For the life of me I don’t understand your ranking of Kirk. Fuller carved up the Falcons last week. The staff WR rankings for the Nation don’t even include Kirk. What gives?????

    1. his injury looked terrible, we’re waiting to see if he even plays. relax.

      1. Taking my chill pill right now!

    2. Just covering the bases while he’s still questionable. I’ll probably move him up significantly with another day of practice.

      1. 10-4. By the By, Roster Nation has me 4-1 in three leagues, all with substantially different lineups, and all from the Cheat Sheet. 3-2 in 2 other and here is the best part. I rank no lower than 3rd place in them all! #thenationrocks

  4. will you trade cmc for kamara and lockett. I’m currently 5-0 my roster is
    TE. ERTZ

    1. I’m no expert, but you have 2 top 10 recievers right now. I don’t see the need to give up the best fantasy asset for a lower running back and a reciever that you may not even need to play.

  5. Post By

    Jimmy G or Kyle Allen this week?

  6. Post By

    I’m currently 4-1, looking to upgrade my WR corps:

    QBs: Mahomes, Murray
    RBs: Bell, Henry
    WRs: Evans, Samuel, Kirk, John Brown, Preston Williams
    TEs: Howard, Henry

    Should I try and move Mahomes for a top-tier WR?

    1. if you can make it happen for an OBJ or DHopkins buy low, etc. then yes.

  7. Post By

    Who should I start in my flex full point PPR. Robert Woods, Cortland Sutton or Robert Woods?

    1. I don’t mean to be a dick but the guys spend a ton of hours working on the rankings. You’re answer is litterally on this page by clicking on the spreadsheet.

      1. it’s cool, we don’t mind answering but good lookin out! 😉 – I’d start Woods, Byron would start Sutton, our model has them back to back with Woods ahead of Sutton. It’s a literal toss up. I’d wait to see if Cooks goes because if he doesn’t that would make Woods the play.

      2. Post By

        you got 1 guy saying Woods another saying Sutton im here to get opinions and have a literal conversation. So keep my name out your mouth.

  8. Post By Show Me Your TDs

    10 team PPR 5-0: Hopefully it doesn’t get vetoed but I just pulled receiving Diggs and Barkley for Connor, Damien Williams and Boyd. Other RBs CMC, Cook, Gordon, and Montgomery. Other WRs Godwin, Keenan Allen, Tyfreak and Kirk.

    1. I don’t think it should get vetoed. Diggs has been spotty at best and Barkley could re-injure himself from coming back to quickly. Plus it looks like Damien Williams is definitely the 1A in KC.

  9. Need a rb and a flex. Options are Hyde Westbrook Preston Williams Ronald Jones and Auden Tate

  10. Hey guys. I’m not sure who to start in my flex, standard scoring. C. Hyde, DK. Metcalf or E. Sanders? Thank you so much!

  11. Why is DJ Chark ranked so low?

    1. he’s a only few spots away from guys like Mike Evans and Kenny Golladay. He had an amazing game last week, but he’s scored TDs every week. That kind of clip seems unsustainable in that offense. If you look at industry ranking across the board, he’s actually higher than most.

    I’m in a 10 team standard 3WR 2RB 1 flex league

    RB: Kamara, Jacobs, Fournette, Coleman, Gore
    WR: Julio, AJ green, Samuel, Larry Fitz, Dorsett

    Would you trade Coleman and Larry Fitz for obj? I also just made a trade and I’m gonna pick up another RB or WR off waivers once it goes through

    1. If you’re winning games i might stay put. no guarantee Green comes back soon and fitz is as stable as they come.

  13. I do not have any hand cuffs
    Me: McCaffrey, DelvCook, Breida, CHyde, TColeman, RoyceFreeman
    I play 3RB + 1Flex

    Should I pick up Mattison?
    I would have to drop a RB Who?
    Bonefon Not available opponent nabbed him

    1. if you’re not playing freeman, he could be dropped for mattison

  14. I’m in a 10 team standard and I have someone who wants me to trade Julio to them for Melvin Gordon and one other player. Noteables on their team would be Mahomes, Kerryon Johnson, Dissly, Locket, Metcalf, Shepard, and Breida. My team is Watson, Chark, Fournette, Bell, Sutton, Coleman, Waller, Desean Jackson, R Jones, Robby Anderson. Would you do this trade and who would you target as extra pieces? We also have an extra flex spot. Thank you for your help.

    1. I would need melvin and lockett to consider it.

      1. Thank you.

  15. I am thinking it’s time to high sell Pats defense and start streaming my defenses for the rest of the year (well, until 15 & 16, which = Pats) – what is a reason ask? I know a half of my leagues will see right through it, this my ask for a reality check. Correction – will offer trade so that I can get Pats vs Jets.
    RWN = awesomeness!

    1. It’s hard to tell without seeing your roster and what you might need.

  16. reason = Reasonable…
    This = thus
    Very fat fingers, not much editing, apparently!

  17. I am looking to buy DHops with a running Back.

    I have Chubb and Josh Jacobs to offer.

    1. Should I just leave it alone?
    2. if not, which RB would you suggest?

    my roster:

    RB Elliot, Chubb, Jacobs, RoJo, Pollard, Mattison
    WR Godwin, Fuller, Kirk, Samuel, Beasley, AJ Brown
    TE Kittle, Andrews (whom I currently flex every week)

    1. I do think you need another stud wr. I would suggest jacobs. he might take jacobs and kirk. if you move chubb it would have to be straight up, but i would avoid that unless you’re losing games as is.

    Hey Trashman, I’m pretty thin at WR in a 12 team ppr. I have plenty of RB’s, Zeke, Ingram, Derrick Henry, Melvin Gordon and Hyde. Wr’s are Mclaurin, Hollywood and Mike Williams. Is Mark Ingram or Henry a fair offer to an owner that has ODB or Mike Evans?? They need RB help as much as I need WR help. Thank you!!

    1. Seems fair to me considering the low floors that you’re getting from both wrs right now.

  19. still trying to trade for a WR1 with no luck. I have an offer out for Julio, I give A Jones and Waller. I can try to get K Allen, Cooper or M Thomas. I have a combination of A Jones, M Gordon and Waller to use. Do you think I can get either Cooper, Thomas or Allen straight up for Jones.

    1. All seem reasonable, though i doubt the cooper owner will budge. Allen is in a “slump”, so I think he’ll be the least difficult get right now.

  20. Need lineup help for this week. 12 Man, 1/2 PPR, 2 RB-2WR-1Flex(RB/WR/TE)
    RBs: Alvin Kamara, Damien Williams, Adrian Peterson
    WRs: Amari Cooper, Tyler Lockett, Terry McLaurin, Robert Woods

    Currently have: Kamara, Williams, Cooper, Lockett, and McLaurin in flex. (Peterson and Woods on the Bench)

    Should I shift that around at all with all the talk of Peterson getting higher role VS Miami this week?

    1. I think you have it right.

      1. Thanks! Appreciate it!

  21. 12 team .5 ppr

    Trade proposal

    My Tyreek & Andrew

    For Karryon, Locket, Ertz

    My team

    RB- Bell, Mack, Ingram, Coleman, McCoy, M Brown
    WR- Tyreek, Evans, Chark, Mclaurin
    TE- M Andrew’s

    What do you think?

    1. Normally i’d say yes, but you’re already so deep at rb. unless you can start 4 rbs, i think it dilutes your starting lineup more than it strengthens it.

      1. Thanks Trashman.

    I was offered juju and giving up golliday in a 12 team full point ppr.
    My receivers are Godwin, fueller. Hilton, D. Johnson PITT , and Preston Williams and josh Jacobs for my Flex. We start 3 WR and 1 flex

    1. Post By

      What you guys think ?

      1. Post By

        Also 4-1 most points and looking to b improve for a nice playoff run.

    2. nope, especially if you’re winning games. too many questions at the qb spot in pitt.

    What you guy think ??

  24. Trashman why do you like conner over kerryon? opportunity? do you expect kerryon to get 25 touches again or no?

    1. Conner’s role is just so locked in. no Samuels, and I think Pitt is going to lean heavily on Conner due to the qb situation. kj is only a couple spots lower, so it’s not a big deal if you feel better about him. i actually might move him up if hockenson looks like he’s going to go. if you’re having to choose between those two for a sit/start, i’d say you’re in a pretty good position.

      1. Yeah i just acquired conner as a throw in for a trade. I have a stacked roster – trouble is, some of these start/sit questions are tough lol

  25. Caswell…stop asking stupid questions. It’s a lateral move…no point

  26. Post By

    Really struggling this week with full point PPR – Mike Evans, Robert Woods, Tyler Boyd, Damien Williams. Have to sit 1. Leaning Williams, but Mike Evans into the Carolina secondary plus his/Jameis inconsistency is a concern. Thoughts?

    1. winston mentioned his intent to get evans the ball this week, so i’d keep evans in over woods, unless cooks ends up sitting.

  27. Are there any stats on which NFL teams give up the most points to an opposing defense? thanks

  28. What is your opinion on Todd Gurley?

    I think he is a broken football player, so I picked up M Brown and Henderson as speculative adds.

    Do you like this opportunity? I will need to drop one of these guys to pick up a defense.

    I do not have Gurley.

    Which player would you keep?

    Thanks for your help.

    1. What do you guys think of AJ Green ROS? Do you think he comes back a WR1?

      Is he worth a speculative add?

      My WR- Evans, Locket, Chark and McLaurin.

      RB- Bell, Mack, Ingram, Karryon, McCoy, Coleman, M Brown.

      Who would you trade if you were looking to pick up AJ?

      Thanks for your input.

  29. 1/2 PPR. Been offered OBJ or Edelman for Mark Ingram. Should I make the trade. I have QB Wilson, WRs Lockett, Gordon, Samuel, Landry, Kirk. RBs Zeke and Fournette. Or counter, he has WRs OBJ, Edelman, Chark, Shepard, Sutton. RBs Drake, Bell and Peterson.

  30. Someone dropped Malcolm Brown Wed. How much Faab would you bid on him. I have $75/$100 left.

  31. Who would you rather have on your bench for byes ROS (as of now anyway) – Diontae Johnson, Auden Tate or Kenny Stills?

    1. Or Dorsett who is also available now

  32. Team Name: Belchick Yourself!, Record: 3-2.
    0.5pt PPR: I’ve been offered Courtland Sutton and Matt Breida for my George Kittle. I also own Travis Kelce. I use them both weekly. I’m desperate for an RB. My best RB is Devante Freeman. I usually start Chris Thompson weekly along side Freeman. I drafted Miles Sanders, Derrius Guice, and Devin Singletary which I have since dropped. I’m loaded at WR and TE. I have top waiver priority. Do I get Breida & Sutton or hold out for a better RB?

  33. PPR. Drop Demarcus Robinson for Robby Anderson? Bench depth.


    1. Post By

      I just listened to the trade cast Roby Anderson is a great stash look at his matchups come fantasy playoff time. I would make the move personally.

  34. Post By

    Need Input,

    Full point ppr. Record is 2-3. In need of a TE. The waiver options are Mcdonald, Akins, Sprinkle, Higbee, Fant, Hurst.

    I was offered Greg Olsen or Delanie Walker in a trade for Carlos Hyde. Would be left with only breida/coleman/hines at rb after the move.

    Yay, nay, or would one of the waiver options do?


  35. Post By

    My team: Kyler,Mark Ingram, Sony Michel, DeAndre Hopkins,Amari Cooper,Vance McDonald, Robert Woods,
    Bench: Cortland Sutton,Matt Brieda,Ito Smith,Tyreek Hill & Waller.

    I have strength at the WR position would it be wise to propose Mark Ingram and say a Christian Kirk or Cortland Sutton to try and land a Alvin Kamara?

    1. Post By

      I also proposed Bredia and Sutton for Lev Bell so we’ll see how that pans out.

  36. Standard dynasty- was offered kenyan drake for will fuller. could use the rb depth and im fairly set at wr

  37. I love RosterWatch

  38. Post By

  40. *Pro Member* Need TRADE ADVICE:

    I would Receive: Will Dissley & Mike Williams

    RBs I have on my team: L.Bell, David Johnson & Edmonds, Kerryon Johnson & Ronald Jones

    WRs on my squad: Edelman, Marquis Brown, C. Ridley & AJ Green

  41. I can’t make a trade to get any value out of Metcalf and Hollywood Brown.

    Do I drop either of these guys for Desean Jackson ?

  42. Hey Trashman,
    I have Devonta Freeman and Carson as starters with Barkley out and then only Ito Smith and Murray on bench. Would you trade Freeman for Zak Prescott? I have Baker and Brissett is on bye. Could drop Murray for Garappolo. Thoughts?

  43. October 12, 2019 at 1:16 pm
    DEF: Chargers or Packers? Dropping one of these 2 DEF to pick up Newton or Ronald Jones. Russell Wilson is my starting QB, but want to keep Newton off someone else’s team

  44. Post By Electricwessel

    So I have both Malcom brown and Lat Murray. My RB1 is Chubb RB2 is Damien Williams. WR1 is Hopkins WR2 is Edelman. I have Golladay as my Flex. Should I put Brown or Murray in as flex? Or take Williams out and play both? Rosterwatch Pro member!!
