Trashman’s Garbage Grab Bag: Week 10
Another week, another sifting session through the fantasy refuse for hidden treasure. Here’s what I’ve scrounged up this week….
Russel Gage, Falcons: Gage is the new Sanu in Atlanta, garnering 9 targets last week just to prove it. Expect a shoot out versus the Saints this week.
Alex Erickson, Bengals: Erickson has been the Bengals’ best receiver over the last two weeks, averaging 10 targets and over 115 yards during that time. He plays the Ravens, who have been susceptible to the pass this season.
Josh Reynolds, Rams: Reynolds picked up 73 yards and a TD last week when Brandin Cooks went down to a concussion. Cooks is out again this week, leaving Reynolds to pick up where he left off.
Aj Brown, Titans: Corey Davis is doubtful, and Delanie Walker is still out, making Brown a prime breakout candidate this week.
Kalen Ballage, Dolphins: Ballage gets the Miami backfield all to himself, finally, with Kenyan Drake and Mark Walton out of the picture. He may not do much with the responsibility, but he’s going to have all the opportunities in the world to produce this week against the Colts.
Ty Johnson/J.D. McKissic, Lions: If Matthew Stafford can’t play on Sunday, Johnson and McKissic are going to have to carry the Lions against the Bears. Jeff Driskel certainly isn’t going to.
Darrell Henderson, Rams: Henderson has 11 carries in each of his last 2 games, making him a viable flex start in deeper leagues. Maybe he’ll pick up some of that Brandin Cooks slack.
Mike Gesicki, Dolphins: Gesicki led the Dolphins in receiving last week with Preston Williams going down for the season. With little RB help, and shaky WR options, Gesicki could get into a groove.
Rhett Ellison, Giants: Ellison is playing the Evan Engram role while he’s out. Sterling Shepard is out too, so he’s going to get considerable targets.
Ross Dwelley, 49ers: Dwelley is likely to get the start in SF with George Kittle looking doubtful. Garoppolo can only get the ball to Kittle or Emmanuel Sanders it seems, so Dwelley should be worth a start, even if he’s only half as good.
Ryan Tannehill, Titans: Tannehill has 25 fantasy points in every start he’s had since taking over QB for the Titans 3 weeks ago. I don’t expect much deviation against KC this week.
