Trashman’s Garbage Grab Bag: Week 10

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….


Wide Receiver

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.


Running Back

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.


Tight End

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.

    Trade help , finally got someone to do a deal ..
    I would trade Moore and chark for davante Adams

    Only problem is I have Jones

    Thoughts ?

    Am I thinking to much about trading or that I have Jones ?

    1. Make the deal

  2. Morning nation, David Montgomery or Chris Carson ?

      Carson- Don’t swindle yourself. But that is tough.

  3. Hey guys. need a flex out of ARob, Gallup, D.Freeman, and T.Coleman. Thanks

    1. Post By The Flex Network

      I always lean to the RB so I would roll Freeman even in a tough match as he is getting the passing targets for a nice floor and Coleman has Breida who I think is better.

  4. I need 2 WRs out of this garbage:

    -Josh Gordon
    -Chester Rogers
    -Demarius Thomas

    1. Post By The Flex Network

      Slayton and then it’s between Rogers and Gage for me. Game script could favor Gage though who got 9 targets last week. So I would roll Gage based on that.

    Flex issue:
    Marvin Jones Jr – No Staff man and better than average Bears secondary
    Lat Murray – Kamara back..but maybe gently used in a blowout
    Ty Johnson – No Staff man..rely on the run?? but…what the hell are the lions doing with their backfield….

    1. Post By The Flex Network

      I still would roll MJ. JR. Could get swindled any of these options to be honest.

  6. With Kittle doubtful, I need a TE. Should I pick up Jared Cook or wait till todays games are over to see if I even need a TE this week & just grab Hollister for Seattle tomorrow if Kittle is confirmed out? who should I drop?
    RB-Barkley, Gurley, Coleman, Jaylen Samuels, Singletary
    WR-Thomas, Adams, Golladay, Robinson
    1 kicker
    1 defense

    1. Post By The Flex Network

      Kittle is doubtful. Assume he is out. I like Cook in that shootout.
      Sucks to drop any of those guys but you need to fill that roster spot. It is between Robinson and Coleman. If you start 3 WR though, would lean Coleman.

  7. Chris Herndon or Gesicki?

    1. Post By The Flex Network

      This one is tough but I want to see Herndon first. Would roll Gesicki.

  8. Needs some help RW Nation:

    TE: Gesicki, OJ Howard, Jonnu Smith or Ebron??

    DEF: Browns or Rams?

    1. I like gesicki’s upside. Browns

  9. Standard scoring and with Breida a go, I’m considering Latavius M in my flex position vs. Coleman. With NO’s easy match-up I think they might take it a little easier on Kamara and give Murray move touches. Is this crazy talk?

    1. No i think he’ll have standalone value

  10. Post By

    Pitt D or Det D ? Josh Allen or Hoyer?

  11. Trashman you make me sick.
    Play the song!

  12. My dillema this week is Tyler Boyd or Josh Reynolds. The rankings and off shore prop market say Boyd but my noodle says Reynolds.

  13. oops.
