Trashman’s Garbage Grab Bag: Week 5

Trashman’s Garbage Grab Bag: Week 5

Lot’s of reasonable WR plays this week, but RB is pretty thin so use at your own risk. Here’s the Grab for Week 5…


Wide Receiver


Auden Tate, Bengals: Tate is stepping in for John Ross who can’t ever seem to escape the injury bug for too long. Now the no.2 in Cincy, Tater had 10 targets, 6 catches and 88 yards the last time Ross sat two weeks ago.


Javon Wims, Bears: Wims is coming off a 4 catch 56 yard Week 4 with Chase Daniel under center and no Taylor Gabriel around. The Second Team Doctrine dictates that Wims and Daniel will work work together, even in London. 


Diontae Johnson, Steelers: Johnson has looked like Pittsburgh’s best WR over the past two weeks, going over 50 yards and scoring a TD in both contests. Juju Smith-Schuster is questionable to play, but even if he does, Johnson should get enough targets to do some damage. 


Geronimo Allison, Packers: No Davante Adams means Allison steps in as the no.2 in Green Bay behind Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Dallas covers slot corners, like MVS, particularly well, so I like Aaron Rodgers to look to Allison early and often this week. 


Deebo Samuel, 49ers: Samuel was on his way to establishing himself as the 49ers top WR before their Week 4 bye, and he’ll look to work as the main chain mover this week in their return. Dante Pettis and Marquise Goodwin are in the mix as well, but Samuel has the best combo of possession receiver and big play breaker of the three. 


Tight End


Jack Doyle, Colts: Doyle saw more targets(8) than Eric Ebron last week, so we know he’s in the mix. The Colts are going to need all the firepower they can muster against the Chiefs, so Doyle should see significant targets again this week. 


Tyler Eifert, Bengals: It’s ironic because the Cardinals were known for being brutal against TEs only a few years ago, but they are now arguably the easiest matchup for opposing TEs so far this season. Eifert isn’t the beast he once was, due to numerous injuries over the years, but he’s relatively healthy right now, and the Bengals are without John Ross and A.J. Green. I’d be surprised if Eifert doesn’t score in this one. 


Running Back


Raheem Mostert, 49ers: Pickings are slim at the RB position right now, so Mostert may be the best of the worst. In Mostert’s favor is that 8 of his 34 carries have been over 10 yards, a mark that leads the NFL. If anyone has a chance to do a lot of damage with limited carries, it’s him.


Nyheim Hines, Colts: Hines is here because the Colts are playing the Chiefs, and in the likely event that the Colts drop behind, they’ll need his services in a hurry up offense. 


Gio Bernard, Bengals: Bernard hasn’t done much this season, but if you’re looking for a dart throw play at RB, he could be utilized as an extra set of hands in this one with Ross and Green out. 




Andy Dalton, Bengals: Dalton is without two of his best pass catchers in A.J. Green and John Ross, but the matchup is too good to pass up. Only Miami has given up more points to QBs this season.

    12 Team – 2 Flex – Full PPR

    QB -Wentz
    WR – Edelman
    WR – Godwin
    RB – Zeke
    RB – Mixon
    TE – Andrews
    Flex – Josh Gordon
    Flex – Kerryon

    David Montgomery
    Diontae Johnson
    Darrell Williams

    I made these trades yesterday, just looking for a little feedback:



    Michael Thomas
    Keesean Johnson (throw in)

    My thought process was trying to flip my RB depth to upgrade my WRs. Felt I had to trade one of my NE WRs (which ever I could get more for), and Kerryon (who I don’t think had a very high ceiling) for Thomas who’s, what I think to be, in the middle of a relatively buy low window. With the news that Brees might be returning sooner than expected, thought this buying opportunity wasn’t going to be open for long. Thoughts RW Nation?

    1. 1. you got the best player in the deal in m.thomas
      2. you strengthen your starting roster
      3. you made your lineup decisions easier by not having (2) patriot receivers

      love k.johnson personally but with your depth I doubt you’ll notice his absence. fine trade.

    Davante freeman or Gallman standard league flex

    1. just a hunch but w.gallman should have fresher legs and one more chance to prove himself before saquon’s return and little competition for touches.
      d.freeman hasn’t impressed so far, non-ppr hurts his output some, and that atlanta team just seems off. my $0.02.

  3. Team name: Belichick Yourself Record: 3-1… I need to pickup a kicker. Who to drop Devin Singletary or Jaylen Samuels? I have 2 QBs right now in Dak and Jameis but I feel better about Jameis specifically this week. Help a brother por favor

    1. that’s tough, but i see singletary being a more consistent contributor when he’s healthy.

  4. If juju can’t go who should I play rojo, Coleman or crowded in a 0.5 ppr

      1. Who ?

  5. TD Monster 2-2; Odd man at WR: Curtis Samuel or Diontae Johnson? OBJ, Robinson and Cooper are locked and loaded

    1. i;d go with dj if juju sits. samuel, otherwise

  6. need a flex ou of Allen Robinson, Sony, or j jacobs


      1. thank you!

  7. Thanks Trashman, filthy dynasty question, Blake Jarwin or Sprinkle at TE this week? Sadly these are the two best options available

    1. aye, jarwin if i had to
