Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 12

Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 12

So many players are unavailable this week that even the Grab guys look squeaky clean. All the better for us Trashmen, I say. Here’s the Grab going into Week 12…


Running Back

Brian Hill, Falcons

Hill will start in place of Todd Gurley on Sunday, and if Julio Jones plays, he’ll actually be worth starting. The offense grinds to a halt when Jones is absent from the field, so let’s hope he can tough it out. 


Benny Snell Jr., Steelers

James Conner is Covid-19 listed and in danger of not being able to play on Tuesday, barring a false-positive test. Snell and Anthony McFarland will round out the backfield in that case, with Snell having the upperhand with goal line duties. 


Jordan Wilkins, Colts

Wilkins will share the RB duties with Nyheim Hines, now that Jonathan Taylor is on the Covid-19 list. Hines has the most upside, but he’s probably already owned in your league and Wilkins has a pretty good chance to score regardless.


Wide Receiver

Keelan Cole, Jaguars

D.J. Chark and Chris Conley are out, meaning that Cole will likely run as the no.1 receiving option in Jacksonville. Yes, Mike Glennon will be under center for the Jags, but he can’t be worse than what they’ve had to deal with this season. 


Kendall Hinton, Broncos

I know nothing about Hinton, other than there’s a strong chance he plays QB for a majority of plays for the QB-less Broncos this week. Unless the game gets rescheduled, he’ll be worth starting, just for his WR designation.


Josh Reynolds, Rams

Reynolds had a down week in Week 11, but he still had 6 targets and is averaging 8 over his last 4 games. He goes up against a 49ers defense that is middling against the pass this week.


Denzel Mims, Jets

Mims has had at least 62 yards and 7 targets in his last two games, leading the Jets in receiving yards(71) and targets(8) last week. He should do the same in Week 12. 


Tight End

Jordan Reed, 49ers

Reed will garner considerable targets this week with Brandon Aiyuk on the Covid-19 list. Deebo Samuel is returning to the field, but Reed should be the no.2 target getter at worst, all the same. 



Philip Rivers, Colts

Rivers faces the Titans this week, the same team he threw over 300 yards and a TD against two weeks ago. He won’t have Jonathan taylor to take the pressure off this week, but Rivers should get ample usage from Nyheim Hines in the short passing game.

    Start Wilkins or Damien Harris in PPR? Thx!!!

  2. Prob Harris

  3. Should i play Austin ekeler or mostert in the flex?? Full ppr. Thanks

    1. Post By Baron VonIronCock

      Buff and chargers game should be the equivalent of a rocky boxing match, where the young qbs stand toe to toe and exchange blows.
      Including dump offs to the rb

      Plus shanahans are gonna shanahan
      God knows what rb he gives the most run?! Esp with mostert comin off an injury.


  4. Should I risk playing JuJu (aka believe the Steelers-Ravens game happens) or play Reagor instead?

    1. Post By Baron VonIronCock

      I am pullibg all balt pit guys out.
      And with juju there isnt much risk/ reward

      If u have guys like cole beasley, hilton, or slayton types
      I fire them up before juju

    1 Pt PPR – Need one between Agholor, Landry, Crowder or Mooney

    2nd League – ALso 1 Pt PPR – DO i try to start Big Ben and Diontae Johnson or go with Ryan and Deebo Samuel. Very small bench.

    1. Post By Baron VonIronCock

      Do u have a dart board handy?
      I lean landry
      Followed by crowder

      2nd question

      If u are a big underdog
      Go with the steelers high ceiling

      If u see ur self in a tight match go with the safety of the guys who u know their game wont be cancelled.

  6. If sitting JuJu, would you rather Reagor or Mims in ppr?

    1. Post By Baron VonIronCock

      Eesh i dunno
      Reagor i guess.
      Hes got a positive game script and worst pass d in the league

      1. Haha thanks bud. Desperate times & a bare waiver. Best of luck to you today in your matchups

  7. Post By

    Need upside

    Do I dare start Hinton at Wr spot over ARob?

    Also another league Hinton over Perriman at Flex?


    1. Post By Baron VonIronCock

      Still robinson dude..
      Should get 13.5 ppr pts

      And yeah hilton over perriman
      I think..

  8. Roll the dice by keeping Claypool in the lineup or pivot to Pittman or Deebo?


    1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      Claypool is too risky in this must win week. Pittman is the play in my judgment. Could end up with fewer points but at least you know he is going to play

  9. Suck My Koch. 4-7
    1 PPR
    Flex spot
    Bernard or Pittman?

    1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      Pittman is now verging on game-breaker status. I’d go with him

  10. Post By

    1 PPR Start
    Cooper Kupp or Corey Davis?

    1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      Kupp is red hot. Start him

  11. Post By

    Do I start Ekeler over Gio Bernard?

    And then for my flex – Ekeler/Bernard or DJ Moore?

    1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      I’d def go with Ekeler. if he is playing it is fair to assume close to full health.

  12. Post By

    Need WR help half point PPR

    Fulgham Debow or Perriman need 2

    RB help
    Hill or Gore?


    1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      Deebo and Perriman are the ones I’d play. However if the Eagles make a QB change, sometimes that helps the WRs. We shall see.

      I’d go with Brian Hill over Gore. Nothing grn’t but it feels like it has more juice.

  13. Hurst or Rudolph in ppr now that Julio most likely sits?? Thanks.

    1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      This is a true 50/50 call. If it were my team I’m still playing Hyden Hurst but like I said. Coin flip

  14. Post By

    Half point PPR
    ARob or Beasley?


    1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      Still have to go with Arob here, but the question is very reaosnable. Would not shock me if CB outproduces AR today.

  15. Do you think I’m better off going with Philip rivers over Carson Wentz? Being that hurts has been getting first team reps?

    1. My other options would be cousins, Bridgewater, fitzmagic, or Mayfield

      1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

        Fitz is likely the highest upside, but we know the floor with him too

    2. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      I do not think Wentz is playable. Anytime your QB has serious bench risk, it is a major red flag. My advice is play Rivers. Good luck

  16. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

    Another Ekeler inquiry. Is it even worth considering if the expectation is a timeshare?

    Juggling between him and Gio B’s PPR value.

    1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      Ekeler has more PPR upside with Herbert, I’d play him and feel reasonably good about it. Obviously, anything can happen, but this is how I’d do it on my team.

  17. Post By John Hunsberger

    Should I play Big Ben or pick up Carr , I have an extra roster spot now Bc of JT covid ir ..

    I’m finding it hard to believe Steelers are going to play

    1. I’d pick up Carr, why risk it

  18. 1 pt ppr. Gio Bernard, Brian hill or David Montgomery?

    1. I’d go with Montgomery

  19. Standard: Royce Freeman, Gio, Wilkins or Moss as my RB2

    1. Would go Gio in PPR, Wilkins in STD.

  20. Post By

    Start 2 of 3 in PPR: Harris, Wilkins, Antonio Brown? Thx!

    1. AB and probably Harris for me.

      1. Post By

        Would it change your mind if you knew that the cockamany commish set up league as RB getting .5 points per carry ?

  21. Post By

    Perriman or Zack Moss in PPR. Thx?

    1. we have Moss projected with .4 more fantasy points, so I guess that’s where I lean. Tough call.

  22. Which direction would you go. .5 ppr, flex options are James Robinson, Allen Robinson, Debo Samuel or Pittman?

  23. Full point ppr need my flex filled, Evans, Carson, or Ekeler. Thanks fellas

  24. 1ppr:
    RB Gio or Wilkins?
    WR: Justin Jefferson or Allen Robinson?
    FLEX: Gio Bernard, Justin Jefferson or Allen Robinson?

  25. Jordan Wilkins or Gus Edwards?

    1. Standard

  26. Post By

    would you start Wilkins over Antonio Brown in a 1pt PPR if RB’s get .5 per carry?

  27. Post By

    PPR Mike Evans or Mike Pittman?
