Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 5


Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 5

It’s an odd week when the RBs are more plentiful than the WRs in the grab, yet here we are. Get your ground game going while you can…



Jacoby Brissett, Colts: Brissett had a great first half against a (supposedly) elite Seahawks defense last Sunday night, before the wheels fell off once he realized he was playing for the Colts and not the Patriots anymore. He’s got an unflappable nature about him that makes me excited for his NFL future, and he should have an easier go of it against the hapless 49ers on Sunday.


Running Back

Thomas Rawls, Seahawks: It was only 2 seasons ago that Rawls led the NFL in yards per carry as the undisputed workhorse in Seattle. Injuries has plagued him since, but he is as healthy as he’s been in a long time now and has the reigns in the backfield again – Lacy is just insurance as far as I’m concerned.

Wayne Gallman, Giants: Gallman is the best of the worst group of Giants backs I’ve seen in awhile. What’s good is that he’s facing one of the worst run defenses in the league right now in the Chargers. He should be good for at least a flex.

Alex Collins, Ravens: It’s a crowded backfield in Baltimore, but Collins is producing with whatever he’s given, as he’s gotten 82 yards on 9 carries in the last 2 games. If he can hold onto the ball he could hold onto first 2 down duties.

Jerrick McKinnon, Vikings: Latavius Murray was dead weight as a Raider, and I don’t expect much to change now that he’s a Viking. McKinnon is their best back, and I think they’ll realize that sooner than later.


Wide Receiver

Jermaine Kearse, Jets: Austin Seferian-Jenkins will steal some red-zone thunder, but Kearse is still the no.1 in New York, and he’ll get a middling Browns secondary this week.

Mike Wallace, Ravens: Wallace’s targets have gone up every week, and he’s playing virtually every offensive down. The Ravens stink, but Wallace is their best chance of going big this week with Jeremy Maclin dealing with an injured hand.

Nelson Agholor, Eagles: Alshon Jeffery will be tied up with Patrick Peterson most of the day, leaving Agholor and Ertz to soak up targets. Yes, I purposefully omitted Torrey Smith. He’s my least favorite fantasy player, even though his prospects are good in this one.


Tight End

Ben Watson, Ravens:  Watson’s floor has proven to be among the higher of streaming TEs this season. He should have little trouble finding yards and end-zone targets against Oakland.

Tyler Kroft, Bengals: The other Tyler is being used as if he was Eifert, especially in the red-zone. Buffalo is tough to pass on, but they’re even harder to run against.



  1. Jordan Howard or Ellington PPR

    1. Ellington has the easier matchup, and a slightly better pedigree than Howard

    2. How do u feel about the Packers situation,I have Ty and don’t want to take a chance on any of the unknown backs

      1. he’s very unlikely to play. it looks like aaron jones this week

  2. Pick up McKinnon and drop Jaron Brown a good play?

    1. I still like Brown. I’d wait for him to cool off before sitting him. He’s getting too many targets.

  3. Casual Marcus Mariota owner here. Would you prefer Brisset or Watson this week at QB?

  4. Rawls or Crowell? 1-ppr

    1. i take the plunge with rawls. seen nothing from crowell thus far and game script pointing to duke johnson.

  5. I see you say brissett is a grab here. I have Wilson as my gb would it be better to put in Watson instead of him.

      Damn, that ‘s some cold luck! With that kind of team, we’re sure you’ll recover. I’d sit Henry, and start the 2 WR highest in our rankings.

  14. Cam Newton or Alex Smith in ppr league?

  15. full point ppr. If mariota doesn’t play should I sit Delanie Walker and start hunter henry?

    1. i would’nt. could see walker as a safety blanket for cassel.

  16. Post By

    Rishard Matthews or Mixon??

  17. Great day for football! Thanks to you guys I pulled out a win last week and I am sitting at 1-3 getting ready for my team to start rolling. Today I’m starting Melvin Gordon, Jay Ajay, Larry Fitzgerald, & DeVante Parker in my 12 team half point PPR league.

    I need to fill one more roster position and my choice is between Pierre Garcon (revenge narrative?) or Marshawn Lynch? They are extremely close on Trashman’s flex rankings. Also have Martavis Bryant, Cooper Kupp, and Ellington as options.

    I also want to make the right choice at QB I have Russell Wilson (not sure his history on the road and against LA is all that great) or Deshaun Watson? In this league QBs get the 6 points for passing TD’s but get negative 4 points per interception.

    Any assistance with that last flex spot and also the QB decision would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks everyone and good luck to all this week!

  18. Martavius Bryant at flex with illness AND vs Jalen Ramsey, or go Jerrick Mackinnon or a Bears WR (PPR)

  19. Jimmy or ASJ? .5ppr

  20. Post By Silent Riders

  21. Post By

    Need 2 Fitz, K Allen, Garçon full pt ppr

  22. .5 PPR Pick one:

    Aaron Jones
    Jamaal Williams
    Will Fuller

  23. We have small rosters and I have to drop one of these this morning to pick up a QB as I only have Mariota. A. Kamara, T Rawls, T Riddick, J Charles, or m Bryant. Who has to go. Als, which QB to grab? McCown, Taylor, Hoyer, or Cutler.

  24. Post By

    I saw in the rankings that Elijah McGuire was ahead of Gallman. Mcguire wasn’t on the garbage grab but Gallman was. Do I start Elijah Mcguire or Wayne Gallman this week in a standard league

  25. Post By

    PPR QB Week 5 – Eli, Rivers, Wentz, Brisset ?

  26. Standard scoring do I trade Hilton and Powell for Pryor and mixon

  27. I started Mike Wallace over Amari Cooper in PPR with long catch bonuses. Thanks Trashman!

  28. Would you drop R Wilson for Wentz or Rivers?

    1. probably not. too much upside with russ. i’ve actually seen a negative game from rivers
