Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 5
They keep getting hurt. We keep filling in the blanks. It’s a Trashman’s world this season, and I couldn’t be happier. Here’s the Grab….
Hunter Renfrow, Raiders – 34% owned
The Chiefs defend the pass pretty well actually, but the Raiders are going to have to air it out to stay in the game. Henry Ruggs is returning, but that may actually open things up for Renfrow, who has been leading the Raiders receivers in his stead.
Cole Beasley, Bills – 28% owned
Beasley has never had the highest ceiling, but it’s hard to deny his usefulness in PPR formats. He’s an every week flex in this high-flying Bills offense going against a middling Titans defense.
Tim Patrick, Broncos – 19% owned
Injuries have created opportunities for Patrick, who has scored in each of his last 2 games and went over 100 yards in his most recent one. The Broncos play the Pats this week, and knowing that the Pats will sell out to stop their best weapon – Melvin Gordon – the Broncos will have to go throw it to compete.
Olamide Zaccheaus, Falcons – 6% owned
Zaccheaus led the Falcons in targets(9) and yards last week(86) with Julio Jones sidelined, and Jones looks doubtful to play again this week. Russell Gage is a decent option as well, if he isn’t rostered in your league already.
Justin Jackson, Chargers – 38% Owned
Jackson looked like a sure bet to be the odd man out behind Austin Ekeler and Joshua Kelley, before Ekeler landed on IR with a hamstring injury. Now Jackson is in line for double digit touches against a ho-hum Saints run defense.
Malcolm Brown, Rams – 39% owned
Brown surprised everyone when he came out to lead the Rams in carries in Week 4 after Darrell Henderson was the bell cow back in Week 3 while Brown was out. It’s anyone’s guess who will lead the Rams rushing attack this week, but Brown is averaging the most touches after 4 weeks.
Mo Alie-Cox, Colts – 37% owned
I feel like MAC is here a lot, but he keeps producing, and people keep sleeping on him. He was saved by a TD last week, but he’s had either 100+ yards or a score in 3 of 4 games so far.
Kirk Cousins, Vikings – 30% owned
I still don’t like Cousins as a season long QB, but this matchup with the Seahawks is too juicy to pass up. Smoke em if you got em.
