Trashman’s Garbage Grab: week 13
We have quite a few backs and receivers at your disposal this week. I’d make sure to grab Burkhead, as he could be particularly valuable during the playoffs…
Marcus Mariota, Titans: Mariota has 20+ point games in 3 of his last 4 contests. He should make it 4 of his last 5 against the Jets this week.
Rashaad Penny, Seahawks: OC Brian Schottenheimer stated this week that Penny will be a big part of Seattle’s plans this week. It’s questionable as to whether he can be believed, but Penny should get plenty of running room against the 49ers, should he get significant run.
Frank Gore, Dolphins: Gore has had double-digit touches every week since Week 4 but no TDs. Hopefully with Tannehill back, the offense can maneuver close enough to get him to paydirt against a Bills team that is susceptible to the run.
Rex Burkhead, Patriots: No telling exactly how much the Pats will use him, but the fact that they designated him as their I.R. return player shows that they plan to get him involved.
Damien Williams, Chiefs: Spencer Ware is the new starter for the Chiefs, but he’ll have a tenuous hold on that spot. Williams could very well weasel his way into fantasy consideration just as he has in years past as a Dolphin.
Justin Jackson, Chargers: Melvin Gordon is out, leaving Austin Ekeler and Jackson to man the backfield for Los Angeles. Jackson could see double-digit touches this week.
Kenny Stills, Dolphins: Danny Amendola is doubtful to play, so Stills should finally see the targets he’s been hankering for.
David Moore, Seahawks: I keep waiting for Moore to fade into obscurity, but he just keeps making plays, especially in the red-zone. He’s a reasonable flex in most formats this week.
Curtis Samuel, Panthers: He’s had 3 TDs in 4 weeks and he gets the Buccaneers this week. Pencil him in for another.
Josh Doctson, Redskins: Docston has come to life with Colt McCoy under center, with a team high 10 targets last week. He’ll see plenty more this week against a shaky Eagles secondary.
Chris Conley, Chiefs: Conley will start in place of Sammy Watkins this week, and he’s coming off of a 74 yard, 2 TD scorcher in his last game. He’ll have little trouble getting open against the Raiders.
Gerald Everett, Rams: Everett has been a primary red-zone target since Cooper Kupp succumbed to season ending injury. He’ll have a good shot at scoring in his 3rd straight week against the Lions.
