Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 13

Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 13


I know it can be nerve-wracking using waiver wire players on your last week before playoffs, so I won’t take it personally if you don’t heed these calls. Necessity may require you to take a long sniff though. Here’s the grab for Week 13…



Blake Bortles, Jaguars: Bortles had his best game of the season against the Colts the first time around, and he gets them at home this week with new toy Dede Westbrook.


Running Back

Jacquizz Rodgers, Buccaneers: The Bucs are minus Doug Martin this week, leaving Rodgers to head the charge against a middling Green Bay front. He should get enough volume to mitigate his lack of explosiveness.

Devontae Booker, Broncos: Booker didn’t impress in Week 12, but he did out snap all Broncos runners and is getting more action every week. He’ll have a much easier go of it against the shrinking Dolphins.

Austin Ekeler, Chargers: Ekeler doesn’t get a ton of snaps, but he doesn’t need them. His 15.2 point average in PPR leagues over the last 3 games is the only proof you need.

D.J. Foster, Cardinals: You can only play Foster if Adrian Peterson sits, but it’s looking more and more like he will. Foster doesn’t have much experience, but he won’t need it up against one of the worst run defenses in the league.


Wide Receiver

Dontrelle Inman, Bears: Inman is still unowned in most leagues, though he’s been the Bears no.1 since he joined the team. He has a better matchup than usual against the 49ers.

Marquise Goodwin, 49ers: Speedster Goodwin gets the green but confident Jimmy Garoppolo under center this week. The Bears have a stingy secondary, but Goodwin only needs to break one play open to make your day.

Dede Westbrook, Jaguars: Yeah, I know we keep waiting on Westbrook to pop, and it hasn’t happened yet, but he’s getting too many targets to sit against a Colts team that is left with crash-test dummies at the cornerback position.

Cordarrelle Patterson, Raiders: The Raiders are without Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree this week, leaving Patterson, Johnny Holton, and Seth Roberts at the WR position. Patterson offers the best combo of floor and upside of the group.


Tight End

Julius Thomas, Dolphins:Thomas gets a revenge game against his former team the Broncos this week. Add in the fact that no team has allowed more passing TDs this season than Denver, and you have a really good reason to start Thomas.

Ricky Seal-Jones, Cardinals: RSJ has come out of nowhere to become a weekly streamer at the TE position. Blaine Gabbert worked with him as a backup and feels safe targeting him regularly.

    Thanks guys

  4. Hello sir! Need 1FLX, Drake, Burkhead, Mixon, Coleman, Westbrook. Thanks! 0.5ppr

  5. Post By

    I started Jamison Crowder on Thursday and he slightly disappointed. My opponent started Kirk Cousins, so I don’t feel too bad, but I’m down by 6 in a PPR.

    Now I’m left with having to pick ONE of the guys below in my flex, since I plan to start Leveon Bell, Jordan Howard and Davante Adams:

    Kareem Hunt
    Kenyan Drake
    Dion Lewis
    Doug Baldwin
    Demaryious Thomas


  6. Keenum or Bortles?

  7. Now that Lattimore is playing do I go Funchess or Mckinnion? PPR

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      Aye, Funchess.

  8. i’d still go funchess

  9. Post By touchdowntexas

    Collins or Drake or do I bench Alshon @ Flex and start both. I started Crowder at WR already.

    1. i would strongly consider benching alshon.

  10. Standard 6 pt td scoring with bonuses for longer touchdowns.
    C Coleman
    M Goodwin
    P Rich
    Pick two that have the highest ceiling and with a floor around 8-10pts.
    Thanks TMan

  11. Do I take a chance on AB playing and pick up lafell, or just play Riddick, Parker, Gordon or Westbrook over him today?

  12. Standard League need 1 for my flex

    M Jones, Funchess, Lynch, D murray, Parker

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo


  13. And in my other standard league I need one reciever

    J Gordon, Parker, Maclin, Kupp


    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      Kupp, but with the caveat of not knowing who Patrick Peterson will shadow.

  14. Agholor or Zay Jones for the flex

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      I personally like Zay Jones more than Agholor this week, but Seattle has the more prolific offense, and the rapport between Agholor and Wentz is likely much better than Jones and Taylor.

      It’s hard for me to ignore how much Jones has been targeted recently. RW Rankings has Agholor slated higher than Jones.

  15. Ppr need 1
    S. Shepherd, d. Westbrook, c. Coleman, m. Bryant

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      I think the best known quantity here is Coleman, but hard to say where Gordon changes that up.


      In that order, for me.

  16. 1/2 PPR Need one Winston, Mccown, Tyrod Taylor or Stafford

    Need on Woodhead , Cordarrelle Patterson ,Seth Roberts or Martavis Bryant


  17. 1 point PPR… Burkhead or Smith-Schuster?

  18. Post By MichiganWolverineFan95

    Semi finals of playoffs
    2 week format
    Standard Scoring
    Start Bears of Eagles defense?
    Start Baldwin or Rex Burkhead in my flex?

  19. Josh Gordon or Funchess PPR

  20. Standard collins or freeman?

    Ppr freeman or ekeler?

  21. Post By

    Flex position, full PPR. Mixon or Baldwin? Need the safest floor. Opponent had Eagles D left. Gotta win to get in.
