Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 5
It’s Week 5, and I have a lot of options for you. Remember, it’s a garbage CAN not a garbage CAN’T…
Joe Flacco, Ravens: Flacco is averaging over 300 yards and 2 TDs a game this season with the best receiving corps he’s had in a minute. He should have a solid day against a Cleveland defense that gives up yards.
Latavius Murray, Vikings: Murray isn’t a sexy play, but he looks to be the main rushing option for the Vikings in Week 5, since Dalvin Cook isn’t ready to go. The matchup against Philly stinks, but Murray could see several goal line opportunities behind the fast paced Viking offense.
Ty Montgomery, Packers: Montgomery benefits from a depleted Packer receiving corps. Davante Adams, may be the only regular WR starter to step onto the field Sunday.
Corey Grant, Jaguars: Grant gets to be the 3rd-down back and primary backup against a lackluster Chiefs defense that only gets saved by their unreal offense.
There are a lot of upshot WR plays this week, so I’m just going to list them in order of priority:
Keke Coutee, Texans
Taywan Taylor, Titans
Donte Moncrief, Jaguars
Christian Kirk, Cardinals
Antonio Callaway, Browns
Mohamed Sanu, Falcons
Tre’quan Smith, Saints
Michael Gallup, Cowboys
C.J. Uzomah, Bengals: Uzomah is replacing Tyler Eifert as the primary pass-catching TE for the surprisingly proficient Bengals. Cincy is down a receiver in John Ross, so that may open up some targets for Uzomah.
Antonio Gates, Chargers: Gates is getting more involved in the offense every week, and though he’s mostly used as a redzone option, the Chargers should get numerous scoring opportunities against a soft Oakland defense.
