Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 4
What a mess this season is turning into! Fortunately, it’s the perfect environment for a Trashman to thrive in. Happy Dumpster Diving friends!
Andy Isabella, Cardinals: 10% Owned
Isabella caught 2 TDs last week, and with D’Andre Hopkins and Chrisitan Kirk questionable, he could be in for a big day against Carolina. Even if Kirk is the only one to sit on Sunday, Isabella is worth a flex.
Preston Williams, Dolphins: 34% Owned
Williams has been light on targets so far, but he has the best matchup in the league for WRs in the Seahawks this week, and the 4th worst matchup for TEs so Mike Gesicki will have a much tougher time.
Tee Higgins, Bengals: 31% Owned
Higgins has been elevated to 3rd WR in an offense that is going to have to throw a lot to stay in games. In all honesty, Honesty could be the no.2 or even 1 in Cincy when the season is over with A.J. Green starting to show his age. Coming of a 9 target, 2 TD game, he’s well worth a flex start against Jacksonville this week.
Greg Ward, Eagles: 16% Owned
Rookie John Hightower logged the most snaps for Eagles WRs last week, but Ward led the team in receiving with 8 receptions for 72 yards and a TD. Even against the 49ers, he’ll command double digit targets again this week.
Gio Bernard, Bengals: 18% Owned
Bernard is not a lock to get worthwhile carries in Week 4, but with Joe Mixon coming up with a chest injury late in the week, he could end up being the main ball carrier against Jacksonville this week. He’s worth an add to wait and see.
Jeff Wilson, 49ers: 40% owned
Wilson is the most owned player on the list, but he might also be the most useful this week. He scored twice in Week 3 with Raheem Mostert out and was an asset in the passing and running game. Mostert is out again this week, so Wilson will have a major role, even with Jerrick McKinnon around.
Mo Alie-Cox, Colts: 32% Owned
MAC has feasted the past 2 weeks, and his role in the Colts offense is likely to grow now that Michael Pittman is lost until Week 8 at best, starting with the Bears. A TE has scored against Chicago in 2 of 3 weeks this season.
Robert Tonyan, Packers: 17% Owned
Tonyan could be 2nd in targets this week if worse comes to worse and Davante Adams sits. Even if Adams plays, Tonyan will be in line for considerable action against the Falcons, who are the 2nd best matchup for TEs in the league.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, Dolphins: 31% Owned
Fitzpatrick has outperformed the likes of Deshaun Watson and Matt Stafford the last couple of weeks, putting up at 28+ fantasy points a game in that time. He faces a Seattle team this week that is the 2nd best matchup for QBs this season. Expect another shootout in Miami.
