Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 12

Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 12

The pickings are a little slim with 3 games already in the barn this week, but those pickings are are solid. Here’s the Grab for Week 12. Gotta win this one….



Jacoby Brissett, Colts: Brissett didn’t exactly light the field on fire in his first meeting with the Titans this season, but he’s improved since then as far as TDs go, with 2 in each of his last 3 games. He’s a solid play against a less than middling secondary.


Running Back

Jonathan Stewart, Panthers: Stewart is coming off his best game of the season, a 17 carry 110 yard effort against the Dolphins before a bye in Week 11. He faces a Jets team that is in the bottom third of the league for rushing yards allowed per game(117.9).

Devontae Booker, Broncos:  Denver is looking towards the future at several positions, including running back, and it doesn’t hurt that Booker is their most effective back. He out-touched C.J. Anderson 19 to 15 last week, and is likely to lead the backfield against a pitiful Oakland defense. New QB Paxton Lynch will lean on the run as much as he possibly can in his first start this season.

J.D. McKissic, Seahawks: McKissic is Seattle’s spark plug, now that Mike Davis is down, going up against the worst run defense in the league. What more do you need to know?

Corey Clement, Eagles: It’s true that Clement is just one of several productive backs in Philly, but he’s scored in 3 of his last 4 games, and his opponent Chicago actually does a great job of defending the pass so the Eagles may have to depend on the run more than usual.


Wide Receiver

Corey Coleman, Browns: Coleman is the undisputed no.1, on a terrible team no doubt, but he got 80 yards on 11 targets in his first game back from an almost season long absence. He’ll continue to be a high floor, high upside play this week.

Dede Westbrook, Jaguars: Westbrook is a strong candidate to lead the Jaguars in receiving this week with Marqise Lee likely to get the infamous Patrick Peterson treatment.

Deonte Thompson, Bills: Thompson led the Bills in targets last week with 8. Yes, Jordan Matthews has returned, but his upside is limited and Thompson’s has shown to be fairly high in his few starts for Buffalo. His floor is equally low, but the absence of Kelvin Benjamin this week should help that.

Mike Wallace, Ravens:  Wallace makes a consecutive appearance based off of his 56 yard 1 TD game last week, his still low ownership, and the cherry matchup with the Packers this week. Jeremy Maclin is the stronger play but is available in only about 30% of leagues.

Josh Reynolds, Rams: I loved Reynolds at the Senior Bowl, and upon hearing from Ian Rappoport that Reynolds would be filling in for an injured Robert Woods this week I had to add him in here. He’s risky, but he could win tournaments in daily.

Tight End

Julius Thomas, Dolphins: Thomas has scored in 2 of his last 3 games and makes for a reasonable play with a reasonable QB under center against a soft Patriots defense.




  1. Hi you Trashman Guru you! Can ya help me out with 1RB & 1FLX in nonppr: Mack, Dukey, Drake: D. Adams, Coleman, C. Davis, Watkins.
    Also, Tyrod or Carr? Thx man!

    1. My 2 cents:

      Tyrod + Duke Johnson + Coleman

  2. Post By

    Of these players sit 2. Mckissic, hunt, Evans, green, Coleman, Duke Johnson

    1. Post By

      Its a 1 pt ppr

    2. Jeez-

      Think you have to sit McKissick and Duke. Bunch of great options there. Best wishes.

    3. Not sitting Evans Hunt or a Green.
      So question is Start one: JD, Duke or Coleman.
      Even with all the duke talk this week I’d go with the higher scoring offense.
      Cleveland sucks.

    I need help, HAVE to win this week. On a PPR league who do I start at flex. Ajayi, Westbrook, C. Coleman, or Olsen. Thanks!!

    1. Either Ajayi or Coleman – very close call. Vegas has them virtually tied in projected PPR production.

      I’d double check the Trashman’s flex rankings between those two! Both, are very solid options. Best wishes.

      1. Post By

        Thanks Byron, I appreciate the help.

  4. 1/2 point ppr, having a hard time picking a flex between:
    Doug Martin, D. Booker, Corey Davis, Corey Coleman, and Zay Jones

    I’ve got J. Howard and Dion Lewis locked into my 2 starting rb spots right now but the bears could get blown out.

    1. This is Coleman, or if you’re ready to take a leap of faith- I suppose you could roll Corey Davis. Coleman a has more data to support his role, so I’d call him “safer”

      This appears it could finally be the Corey Davis breakout, but there’s no way to know 100%.

  5. Henry, Burkhead, or Parker in a 1 point PPR?

    1. Prob Parker, maybe Henry.

  6. flacco, tyrod, fitzpatrick brissett.. i need 2. who should i cut to pick up dede westbrook. i am already in the playoffs PPR devante parker, jamal williams, dd mckissick, or is westbrook work cutting any of these guys

    1. tyrod and fitz. i’m not excited about williams. if you need the wr help i could lose him for westbrook.

  7. Need to start one in a PPR Gore/Jamal Williams/Damien Williams?

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      I’m liking Damien Williams

  8. 6-5 Black Unicorns Half point PPR.

    Need to swing for the fences because I’m already behind.

    Cam or Ben?

    Need a WR and a FLEX out of these guys. Alshon, Sanu, D Jax, Stills, Lynch, Drake

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo


      Alshon and Sanu

  9. PPR – TE: Olsen or Cook? Flex: Hilton or Miller?

    Thanks guys

    1. I think that if Olsen plays (which he is), Cam is going to target him. Hilton has a good matchup this week.

    2. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      Aye in terms of floor and upside, it’s probably Hilton and Olsen.

  10. Standard league, Duke Johnson or Howard Jordan. Thanks.

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      I’m liking Duke in a much better matchup over Howard Jordan, but wouldn’t fault you for starting the known entity.

  11. Z. Jones, DeDe or B Elington. PPR.

    1. Zay or Dede

  12. PPR-Need 1 for flex

    Jarvis Landry
    Corey Davis
    Joe Mixon
    Amari Cooper

    Thinking Jarvis at this time but not loving the matchup entirely… Moore loves him some Stills

    1. I’d roll Landry

      Alex would prob say Mixon.

      Between those two. Best wishes.

  13. Post By

    Ok RW nation…. I have got one for the masses… 1 point ppr what 3 players are you going to bench out of this group???

    M Evans
    B Cooks
    M Thomas
    C Mccafree
    T Coleman
    C Hyde
    J D Mckissick

  14. Jeez-

    Pron McKissick + McCaffrey + yikes Evans or Thomas?

  15. Best wishes to all today! We thank each and every one of you so much for your support!

  16. 1/2 ppr need 3: Woodhead, Martavis Bryant, Mccoy, Landry, Kroft


  17. PPR. Fitz, Kupp, C. Coleman, Sanu. Need 2.


  18. For the afternoon slate par of 2 who would you rather have

    Fournette with Westbrook or McKissic with Baldwin or Lynch with Baldwin

  19. Week 15 QB — I have clinched a bye and need a QB for week 15 — I have Dak and Dalton on roster but can’t trust Dak and Dalton plays in Minn. — Home team QBs on waivers are — Bortles v Houston; Brissett v Denver; Fitzpatrick v Atlanta; Gabbert v Tenn; and Keenum v Cincy — Other available are Tyrod, Flacco and McCown.
    Do any of these QBs stand out to you as a good choice for week 15? Thanks

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      Tyrod at home against the Dolphins in Week 15 could be an interesting play. The Bills will still be vying for one of the two wildcard spots in a couple of weeks.

      Keenum has been playing relatively consistently off late, so it would behoove you to monitor his production next week.

      Gabbert gets Washington in Week 15. Redskins have been giving up some lucrative numbers to opposing QBs in recent weeks.

      Some food for thought.
