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…
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.
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.
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.
