Trashman’s Garbage Grab: week 13

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.


Running Back

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.


Wide Receiver

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.


Tight End

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.



  1. James white or Josh Adams with a questionable tag?

  2. Packers or Titans?

    (Everything is checked in the defensive settings so the top defense gets 30+ pts each week.)

      1. The Cardinal team total has dropped precipitously this morning (at Pinnacle). Now under 14.5 -160.

        The Jet team total is stagnant at under 14.5 -112.

        Trashman, The “market” agrees with you. Thanks and good luck today.


  3. Lost K Hunt and Len Fournette this week so had to roll out Ingram, LeSean McCoy and Phil Lindsay. Playing against Mahommes and Hill. Need a win to make playoffs – Matt Ryan or Carson Wentz?

  4. No wentz in the rankings this week??

  5. I am in need of some upside for my rb2. Michael Thomas didn’t do much for us and I am up against gurley and mc caffrey.

    Standard need one : Ware, Ekler, Breida, Mack, Cook or Edwards

    1. it’s a tougher matchup but breida is going to get hella work with no garcon or goodwin. ekeler is probably the play with the most upside though

  6. Spencer Ware or Matt Brieda in full PPR?

  7. Post By John Hunsberger

    Standard lg win and get in flex question :
    Mack , Reynolds or Calloway

    Or pickup Samuel , gore , Kirk

  8. Need help picking my lineup at WR…

    D. Adams, T. Hill, A. Thielen

    Flex: T. Boyd or J. Gordon?

    1. PPR.

    2. keep tabs on xavier rhodes’ status. he’ll be a GTD. if he doesn’t go, them gordon. otherwise, boyd.

  9. Need 2 of 3 in PPR

    Dalvin cook Alshon or Chubb

  10. Not crazy about Mack this week in flex. PPR. Howard, Hyde or Martin?


  11. Fighting for a playoff spot…..Mariota or Lamar jackson….

    1. i’d go with jackson. his feet should give him a fairly high floor

  12. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

    .5 PPR flex. Gus Edwards or DJ Moore?

  13. Gus Edwards (Flacco sits) vs Chris Carson in the flex. Must win to make the playoffs.

    1. I’m a pretty heavy favorite so I’m not interested in a low floor.

  14. PPR league. I need 2 RBs, 2 WRs and 1 Flex out of the following:

    RB: Nick Chubb, Spencer Ware, LeSean McCoy, David Johnson, Dalvin Cook

    WR: Emanuel Sanders, Corey Davis, TY Hilton, Julian Edelman, Josh Reynolds

    1. chubb, dj, sanders, edelman, ware

  15. WR and a Flex out of:
    James White
    J Howard
    J Reynolds
    C Kirk
    T Lockett

  16. PPR. Shaky hold on 2nd Place with teams just below in easy matchups. I get the #1 team.
    Matt Ryan or Lamar Jackson? For the other positions I will use your flex rankings unless you think Diggs injury is concerning. Could use Humphries instead. Thanks for fielding questions this morning.

  17. jackson, his fleet give him a good floor and he’s got upside. humphries is looks good with no djax if you’re worried about diggs.

  18. Post By

    Full ppr pick one Adam Humphries, Marlon Mack, Josh Doctson, or Doug Martin.

    1. Prob Martin TBH. Close call- don’t hate Doctson or Humphries if you’re feeling one of them either. Martin has some touches built in.

    2. Post By woo.jonathanwoo


  19. Need 1 rb. 2 Wrs. And one flex. One point PPR. James White. K Drake. C Thompson. AJGreen. Cory Davis. E Sanders. Josh Gordon ???

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      I’m liking Drake in the flex.

  20. full ppr, michel or dion lewis? they aren’t seperated by much in the rankings w michel tad higher, matchup tool says lewis has much better matchup as 10th best versus 27th worst fo rmichel, player props has michel as -110 to score with more rush yrds/less rec yds and lewis -`125 to score less rush yds/more rec yds. and trashman has michel ranked higher than lewis.

    It would seem better play is michel, but I just don’t like matchup and something keeps telling me to play lewis instead.

    Also on sirius it was said Gordon will break out. I have him benched in favor of manny sanders and kennan allen. Is that still the way to go? I really would rather not play michel and gordon if I don’t have to.

    1. Michel

  21. similiar to above, full ppr: mixon or chubb?

    mixon much better matchup, but chubb bit more prop to score and tad higher in yardage. Jones and ware are my other rbs, with juju, manny sanders and kelce with currently starting rivers over luck.

    I am torn on rivers and luck though as well. AGain rivers ranked 2 higher than luck, but luck with better matchup according to tool.

    1. Mixon

  22. Do you think Reed will play vs eagles Monday? I have to make a decision. I could pick up VD just in case and sub him in, but matchup vs eagles for te’s is bad. I can pick up Herndon, uzomah, jonnu smith, everett, etc…

    full pt ppr. I will be in playoffs regardless of win or lose, but wanna win in hopes that 1st and 2nd place lose and I can get enough pts to jump to first for a bye and win reg season $.

  23. also same team as above, Diggs or DJ Moore? full ppr, I don’t like the matchup and injury thing for Diggs. Don’t want him to be a decoy either. Plus DJ Moore matchup looks much better.

    Diggs however better props in rec, yds, and chance of scoring too I think. Diggs is 14th ranked, and Moore 20.

    1. Prob Moore based on pregame reports about Diggs

  24. .5 pp, josh adams or manny sanders in flex? we play 2rb, 3wr, n flex. Already starting dion lewis/chubb (don’t have choice bc fournette suspended, and kerryon out, adams only rb left. At wr starting julio, thielen, and juju.

    may also need to replace reed at TE depending on what you say from above ? lacosse, herndon, uzomah, jonnu are avbl here

    1. Sanders

      Would prob just have Vernon Davis on deck in case of emergency, and roll w/ Reed

  25. I need two, PPR. Conner, Ware, or Mixon

    1. Post By

      Connor and a slight lean to Mixon although I can’t blame you for going with Ware against the dumpster fire Raiders.

  26. Gus Edwards or E Sanders? 0.5 ppr

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      Slight nod to Sanders for me.

      Edwards may not catch a pass, and Sanders gets a large target share against a bad CIN secondary, although they haven’t been AS bad lately.

  27. Post By

    Aj green or Adam humphries

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      I’m more comfortable with Jameis throwing than I am Driskel throwing. In a vacuum, Green. But contextually, I think Humphries is a more conservative play.

  28. Post By

    Famous Jameis or Philly Riv???

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      I’m liking Jameis at home. Road Rivers always gives me pause, but both games project high score totals.

      1. Post By

        I concur

  29. Post By

    Need help with my flex in full point PPR, between AJ Green and James White

    1. Prob White

    2. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      I like White, as well. Don’t know how much we can trust Driskel just yet.

  30. Finish the Job RosterWatch Nation! To all a good day, and a good day to all!

  31. Need W’s in two different leagues to secure playoffs spots!

    1) half-PPR; need 1 FLEX:
    Reynolds @DET
    Hyde vs. IND
    Sutton @CIN
    Kirk @GB
    Drake vs. BUF

    2) Rankings say to start Winston vs. CAR over Luck @JAX this week… why do I not trust Jameis with my fantasy playoff hopes?!

    3) PPR league; need 2 RB + 1 FLEX:
    Michel vs. MIN
    Edwards @ATL
    Ware @OAK
    J. Gordon vs. MIN
    Martin vs. KC

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      1. I like Drake
      2. Winston is not without risk, but Carolina has been susceptible defensively all season. High projected game total.
      3. Ware, Edwards, Michel (touch decision on flex.) I don’t really like the game script with Martin, but he gets the lionshare of carries.

  32. Post By

    Switching gears… GB OR Seattle in a survivor pool???

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      Give me the Pack at home where it will be very, very, very cold.

  33. PPR: Gus Edwards, Sony, Emmanuel Sanders, Boyd, or DJ Moore?

    Need one! Thanks!

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      I think Sanders

      1. Thank you! Was thinking the same thing.
