Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 2

Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 2

Trashman Header


It’s week 2 and our teams are disintegrating before our very eyes. That may be a slight exaggeration, but a lot has already happened to change the outlooks of many of our rosters. No fear, the Garbage Grab is here. These plays are going to help tie you over until more permanent moves can be made. Or hey, maybe these guys will stick. Either way, these are my dumpster diamonds owned in 35% or fewer of leagues going into Week 2.




Tyrod Taylor, Browns: Taylor may not throw for a ton of yards, but his ability to move the ball on the ground(77 yards last week) gives him a solid built in floor. He gets the Saints this week, and they just let Ryan Fitzpatrick put up over 50 fantasy points on them, so Taylor should be a fine play.


Running Back


Jalen Richard, Raiders: Richards had 79 yards on 14 touches last week as the only Raider besides Jared Cook who could catch the ball. Against a solid Denver run defense, look for Oakland to get him involved again in an effort to avoid running right at the Broncos.


Theo Riddick, Lions: RIddick had 9 touches last week, and more importantly, LeGarrette Blount had -3 yards and is questionable coming into Week 2. Kerryon Johnson and Riddick should get most of the run in this one.


Wide Receiver


Dante Pettis, 49ers: Pettis will be starting in place of Marquise Goodwin, and he’s coming of a 61 yard, 1 TD game against the Vikings last week. The Jets went nuts on the Lions who gave up on Matt Patricia with a rookie QB, so I have faith that the 49ers can do the same with Jimmy G.


Ryan Grant, Colts: Grant led the Colts in receptions and yards last week(8, 59) in a new look short passing game. The Redskins are no slouches in defending the pass, but Grant should be a safe PPR start this and most weeks.


Chris Godwin, Buccaneers: DeSean Jackson is playing, but Godwin still needs to be owned. He’s been rotating with Jackson, coming down with 41 yards and a TD in week 1.


Phillip Dorsett, Patriots: Dorsett filled in admirably for Julian Edelman in Week 1, catching 7 balls on 7 targets for 66 yards and a TD. He may be one of the few Patriot pass-catchers that can come up with the ball against the Jaguars secondary this week.


Antonio Callaway, Browns: Josh Gordon is being released on Monday, leaving Callaway to start opposite Rashard Higgins. He was a highly touted prospect coming into the draft this year, and he has the skill to thrive in the NFL. He’s a sneaky start this week against the just burned Saints.


Tight End


Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Jaguars: ASJ was heavily involved in the Jaguars plans last week, getting more snaps than any receiver, but he had a TD called back so his day wasn’t what it could have been. Look for him to rectify the situation against the Patriots,


Jonnu Smith, Titans: Smith is stepping in where Delanie Walker hobbled out as the starting tight end in Tennessee for the rest of the season. Smith is an athletic specimen who we noticed in the Senior Bowl last year as a solid pass-catching option. If Blaine Gabbert is under center, expect him to dump off to his tight end all day.


  1. At this point, would it be better to drop A. Miller for Godwin?

    1. I think so, unless it’s a dynasty or keeper league

      1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

        Can’t argue against it. I’m holding out for at least another week on Miller. I’m a believer!

  2. Stafford or Luck?

    1. Im playing luck until he falters. Hard to trust Stafford when you have a perfectly good alternative

  3. Cobb or Amari PPR? So close on the rankings and I’m not sure how to trust Amari yet.

    1. I agree with your feelings on Amari.

    2. Im fine with Cobb if Rodgers goes

    3. Same dilemma gonna roll Cobb… Sounds like Discount Dbl Chk will go.

    4. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      Same boat. I’ve been wavering all week, but I’m with Trashman. If Rodgers goes, I’m rolling Cobb.

  4. A. Miller or Callaway? .5 PPR

    E. Manning or Hyde? Offensive position spot

    1. Trashman said that Callaway was a sneaky play this week. I’m still waiting to see with Miller.

      For your OP spot, I would most always go with a QB there because they score more points on average.

      1. Ty oh minster of the trash!!!

  5. Fuller or Enunwa in 1PPR?

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      I’d lean Fuller, there.

  6. Regardless of if Mariota plays, do I go with D Henry at flex or go Morris, Golladay or B Marshall? NONPPR

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      I think Henry is TD-dependent this week, so it depends how much you believe Houston’s defense will stiffen up. I like Golladay a little more than Marshall this week.

    Standard scoring league

    Wilson or Alex Smith?

    Flex: Need 1 of (Dion Lewis, Amari Cooper, Kerryon Johnson, Chris Carson, Philip Golladay, Sammy Watkins, Philip Lindsay) Was set on Lewis until I saw the news about the Titans RT and Mariota.


    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      I’d roll with Smith.

      I don’t know how much Mariota’s status really affects Lewis. I think he’ll still get plenty of work. But if you’re uneasy, I think Golladay stands out a little more than the rest.

  8. Need 2 in PPR

    Robby Anderson , Galloday , Burkhead , Lockett

  9. Post By Austin Benedict

    Who sits out of these 3? Ppr

    A Robinson

    1. Sit Robinson. I don’t fully trust trubisky yet

      1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

        Agreed. It’s Robinson, and I don’t think it’s that close.

  10. Arob, Crowell, or Hyde in the flex? PPR

    1. Took between Crow and Hyde… But leaning towards Crowell due to the matchup and playing at home. However check the rankings too to help with your decision.

  11. I need a flex option. I’m choosing between Alfred Morris, Pierre Garçon, and Adrian Peterson. Full point PPR

    1. Or 2 of these 4. Hyde, Garçon, Peterson, Morris. PPR

      1. Peterson and Morris. Morris is a sneaky play I think.

  12. Post By

    Burkhead hogan dorsett over Richard? Flex 1pt ppr

  13. Sorry guys, going to have to cut Millertime over Cole in FAAB attempt to nail down Gio. Cole’s Beckham like one handed catch sealed it for me. Cole definitely looks like a keeper.

  14. Who are your comps to Phil Lindsay? Reminds me Woodhead…

  15. Should I be moving on from Royce Freeman? It’s looking like Lindsay is owning that backfield?

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      Be sure to reference the updated Snap Counts, Touches and Targets tool (should come out tomorrow).

      I definitely think Lindsay offers more value from the Broncos’ backfield, certainly in PPR formats.

  16. What would be your best offer on either Antonio Brown or Zeke. (.5PPR)

    on my roster:
    RB: Kareem Hunt, Rex Burkhead, Mark Ingram, CJ Anderson and Jaylen Samuels
    WR: Julio, Hopkins, E. Sanders, Sammy Watkins, Anthony Miller and DJ Moore.

    Thanks guys!

    1. also, would you consider Peyton Barber/John Brown for Emmanuel Sanders if a trade for the big fish in Zeke or A. Brown falls through

  17. Someone dropped Breida in my league. Question one would you drop either Crowell or Michel for him and if so how much of $100 budget to spend

  18. For week 3 who is the best start — Aaron jones, kerryon johnson, Phillip Lindsay or Bilal Powell (last two available on waivers)
