Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 6

Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 6

The hits keep coming, so we have to keep mining the waiver wire for injury and bye week help. Or if you’re like me, you do it cause it just feels better to win that way. In any case, here are your 35% and under owned power plays for week 6  



Case Keenum, Vikings: Keenum is no prize, but he gets a juicy matchup against the Packers this week. He’s going to have to throw the ball all day to stay in the game. Turnovers are definitely a possibility, but he should have a good day overall.


Running Back

Samaje Perine, Redskins:  Perine has failed to do by force that which has happened by chance, at least for, and that is to take the job from Rob Kelley. Yet here we are in week 6 and Perine is getting the start. He’s going to come off the field on 3rd downs, but Perine should get the first 2 downs and goal line work for the Redskins.

Dion Lewis, Patriots: Lewis led all Patriot backs in rushing in week 5, and Rex Burkhead is out again. The Jets can be run on, but they’re stout enough not to run right at with a big back. It’s a perfect situation for Lewis who’s a bit of a “tweener”.

Matt Forte, Jets: I’m not terribly excited about Forte, but he should steal some of Elijah McGuire’s goal line carries in a decent matchup.


Wide Receiver

Taylor Gabriel, Falcons:  The Falcons are without Sanu, and Gabriel actually leads the Falcons receivers in end-zone looks. He’s a fine flex play in most formats.

Adam Humphries, Buccaneers: Humphries is in the mix every week it seems like, and this week is no different with Mike Evans likely to be shadowed by Patrick Peterson. DeSean Jackson gets the best draw, but Humphries will get plenty of looks in what should be a shootout with the Cardinals.

Ricardo Louis, Browns: Meet the Browns new no.1. With Corey Coleman down for several more weeks and Kenny Britt on the doubtful side of questionable, Louis is Cleveland’s best shot in the passing game outside of Duke Johnson. The way that this week’s opponent the Texans are putting up points, Louis is going to have to be involved early and often to keep the Browns afloat.

JuJu Smith-Schuster, Steelers: Apparently, nobody told JuJu he wasn’t the no.2 WR in Pittsburgh. JuJu is outplaying Martavis Bryant right now, and Big Ben actually hinted that the Steelers might give Bryant a break in this one. Eli Rogers is back to play the slot, so JuJu may get snaps on the outside in Bryant’s stead.


Tight End

Zach Miller, Bears: Mitch Trubisky is favoring Miller as a big safety blanket, and rightfully so. The Bears WRs are hot garbage. He faces the Ravens this week who give it up to tight ends.

David Njoku, Browns: Njoku has caught a TD in 3 of 5 games this season. He doesn’t see a ton of targets, but he makes due with what he gets as the Browns primary end-zone target.


  1. Gabriel, Louis or humphries who’s your best bet. Don’t want to trust Snead and d. Parker likely out.

    Also I have McGuire slotted to play. You like that play over Forte or grab two of these trashy WRs.

    TEs available include cook, asj, hooper, miller, Griffin, njoku

    Ppr, 2 flex spots to fill. Lots of trash to pick through. Which chicken bone has the most meat or are you more of a open can of soup guy?

    1. Charles, Lewis, gore and Forte are available RBs to muddy the waters…

    2. gabriel most likely to score, i’d go with him.

      1. Stick with McGuire. Play Gabriel and McGuire. (2-3) and need this one!

  2. Dak on bye. Need a qb. Brissett, Siemien, Keenum Goff, or Hoyer?


    1. Keenum or Brissett

  3. Flex PPR, D. Thomas or Fuller?
    Thomas -0 TDs 10 games, NYG stingy giving up points to WR and he’s probably covered by Jackrabbit
    Fuller- low volume, but good match up, Watson killing it and red zone targets
    Rankings have Thomas but I’m leaning Fuller

    Bonus -what the hell is going on with Hyde???

    1. the format dictates an advantage for Thomas. I don’t hate Fuller, he’s just very td dependent thus far. Hyde is a holdover from a long gone regime

  4. Trashman.

    Need some help. Should Intrade Wilson lynch and Landry for mixon sanders and wilson

  5. Need 1 of each group. 1pt PPR

    Abdullah or Martin today

    Pryor or Amari Cooper

    1. martin, pryor. i need to see more from cooper before trusting him again

  6. Post By

    Need a RB and a flex in 1/2 ppr. TyMont, Forte, Breida, Tarik – Gabriel is on waivers. Need 2.

  7. Njoku or Engram today?

    1. Engram

  8. Post By

    Ingram or Doug Martin??

    1. Worst question of the week. You could only make it worse by throwing Ajayi in. Again, all good option – just impossibly close. We are leaning towards Mark Ingram.

  9. Trashman

    Need help with WR. With Diggs out and the bye week, my only available wr is M Bryant. Should I pick up either T Gabriel or R Louis?

    At flex I can start Gallman, A Jones, E McGuire or one of the wr mentioned above.

    I would need to. drop Gallman too pick up a wr.

    What are your thoughts?

    1. Close call GMan- we’ve had to spend a lot of time thinking about Louis and Gabriel this week, it’s nearly an impossible deision. The good news – we like both. This morning I’m leaning towards Louis, esp if Britt is inactive.

      Do not drop Gallman. Drop McGuire.

  10. A Collins and Jaron Brown are also available .

  11. I picked up perine a few days ago, would you play him over Buck Allen in .5 ppr?

    1. Post By

      I’d roll with Buck. He’s a lot of touches worth .5pts, whereas Perine is a toss up

  12. M. Lynch , A. Kamara, or T. Hill. Standard. Need 2

    1. Yikes- I’d roll Kamara- then probably Hill.

  13. Post By

    Kittle, Fleener or Njoku this week?

    1. Fleener

  14. Post By

    1pt ppr– Mcguire or crowell?

  15. Trade question. I need RB help in PPR. Lost D. Johnson and Woodhead, now don’t trust Hyde or Cohen. Not many trades in our league and RB are always at a premium.

    Try and get McCaffrey for D.Thomas and Cohen (or C. Hyde)

    I have Hyde, Cohen, McKinnon, Collins, still hanging on to D. Johnson but I bet Peterson complicates his return.

    Also have Crabtree, Thielen, Fuller, Thomas, Kupp, Kerley, Watson, Wilson and Kelce
    Or I could try to trade for Breida. Or maybe dump Cohen on the Howard owner?


  16. I traded Wentz and Landry for Mckinnion. It’s a PPR league. What do you think of the trade?

  17. Looking to approach the Rodgers owner. I have Cousins/R Wilson. Would you package one of those two with DT or D Martin to get Evans?

    Standard scoring
    Trade carson palmer and kamara for jordan howard to the guy in my league that lost rogers this week? I have russell wilson too
