Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 9

Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 9

Time to trim the fat. Here’s the grab for Week 9…



Baker Mayfield, Browns: Mayfield has been pretty consistent over his time as a starter, averaging over 18 points a game in fantasy over his 5 starts. He’ll continue to thrive at home against a weak Chiefs offense.


Running Back

Elijah McGuire, Jets: Bilal Powell is gone for the year, maybe his career, and McGuire is stepping in on his first game since coming off of injury this season. Trenton Cannon did little last week after booming in Week 7, so McGuire should get plenty of opportunity to resume his role as pass-catching back on a team that sorely needs pass-catchers.


Devontae Booker, Broncos: Booker put up 100+ all-purpose yards last week as the lesser half of a 1, 2 punch with Phillip Lindsay. He’ll get the same opportunity against a middle of the road Texans squad in Week 9


Wide Receiver

Tre’Quan Smith, Saints: The Saints face the Rams in a +60 point game, and Smith figures to be a major part of the New Orleans passing attack. He only had 18 yards last week, but Drew Brees only threw for 120 yards on the day. He has a much better outlook this week.


Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Packers: MVS has been on a minor tear filling in for an injured Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison in various turns. Allison is out this week, so MVS should get plenty of run against a Patriots team that is going to do their best to stop Davante Adams.


Anthony Miller, Bears: Miller out-targeted Taylor Gabriel in Allen Robinson’s absence last week, and Robinson is questionable again going into Week 9. Even if Robinson goes, he’s likely to face Tre’Davious White, so Miller should remain a focal point.


Tight End

Chris Herndon, Jets: Herndon has caught a TD in each of his last 3 games, and that’s pretty impressive for any TE going right now. With both Robby Anderson and Quincy Enunwa both questionable to unlikely to suit up, he makes for another reasonable streaming option in Week 9.



  1. Ppr need 1 d.thomas, amendola or ty williams?

    1. thomas if no coutee, or amendola

  2. Need 2
    Alex Collins , Kupp , MJJ , McGuire

  3. Baker Mayfield or Mitch Tribinski?
    Also should I start Devante Parker, Chris Godwin, or Elijah McGuire? .5pt PPR

    1. Mayfield, parker if you’re feeling bold, godwin of you want to be safe

  4. Post By

    Should I start Godwin or Amendola in a PPR? Thanks for your help!

  5. Ito Smith or Valdes-Scantling for a PPR flex?

  6. Need a nasty filthy freshman flex call here.. PPR.. Anthony Miller, Dalvin Cook and his 12 to 20 snaps. Michael Gallup , Josh Doctson

    1. I’d go miller if no a rob. Cook otherwise. Could get some snaps receiving with no diggs

  7. I need four out of these five…JuJu, K. Allen, Kupp, TreQuan Smith, and Marvin Jones.

  8. Ppr flex question:
    A. Ekeler, L. Murray, A. Jones or A. Collins
    Thanks RW

      1. Thanks Trashman

  9. PPR. Sutton or Jordan Howard in the flex?

    Have Melvin Gordon starting. My only other RB is Sony Michel. Should I drop Tre’Quan Smith to add Mike Davis, or am I safe that Gordon starts?

  11. Need advice on my RB2 for standard scoring as I must win this week (record 3-5). My RBs are Fournette, KJohnson, ACollins, JRichard & CThompson. I’m playing Johnson and concerned about Collins this week. I can drop Thompson and pickup & play one of the following:
    Gore/ISmith/EMcGuire-all with early games
    or wait for status reports on RFreeman and CCarson to decide on Booker or MDavis with afternoon games. If I risk the waiting game and both Freeman and Carson play, my last option is to get JWilliams for tonight’s game.

    Any advice is appreciated and thanks in advance.

    1. I would wait. I think Davis is the play if no Carson or Booker if no freeman

    0.5 PPR, Flex spot to fill.

    Ty Williams
    M Gallup
    C Samuel
    Buck Allen
    T Cannon

    Richardson, Bibbs, and Treadwell are also on waivers. Deep dynasty league so RB is a wasteland.

  13. Trying to figure out if I should try and start Michel. I have Chubb/Barber starting now with Sutton as my flex. I could put Michel in the flex and pick up MVS to late switch in my flex? Or do think Michel goes and I could start him as one of the two RBs?

    Need a replacement for Diggs. Standard scoring. I have Gordon, Aldrick Robinson and Laquon Treadwell. I could pick up T Smith from the Saints or Enunwa from the Jets.

    1. Post By Electricwessel

  15. 1pt ppr need only one of these WRs J Gordon, Sutton, A Cooper, or DJ Moore. Thanks

    I got offered Antonio Brown for Ju Ju, Coleman, and Bell. Seems like a lot but my team is stacked and I have Conner. With who I start weekly, I would just be swapping Ju Ju for Brown. We start 3WRs and my current lineup is:

    M Thomas
    Ju Ju
    OJ Howard
    flex: Lindsay

    D Jackson

    1. Post By

      In addition to Brown, I would be getting A Jones and Josh Gordon

      1. I’d pull the trigger

  18. Bunch of tough critical start sits!

    1) Mayfield vs. KC or Big Ben @BAL!?

    2) half-ppr FLEX, need one:
    Drake vs. NYJ
    Howard @ BUF
    Gordon vs. GB
    Sutton vs. HOU

    3) PPR: need 2 RB and a FLEX
    Kerryon @MIN
    Crowell @MIA
    Gordon vs. GB
    Michel vs. GB
    MVS @NE

    4) Standard: Collins vs. PIT or D. Lewis @DAL

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      1. I like Mayfield here.
      2. I like Drake slightly over Howard.
      3. Kerryon, Michel (if he goes), Gordon
      4. Collins

    2. Mayfield, Gordon, Johnson, Michel

    .5ppr need a flex j Brown, Jordan Howard, dev Parker or Anthony miller thanks!

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      Not Miller.

      Bears game feels like a script that really favors Howard.

      Howard > Brown > Parker, imo.

  20. Was offered Gurley + a WR, he wants Evans +Kupp. 10 team half point ppr.

    My team:
    RB – Hunt, Lindsay, Yeldon, Kerryon
    WR – AB, Evans, Kupp, ARob, Watkins, Fitz

    His team:
    RB – Gurley, Barkley, A Jones, McCoy, Mack, D Martin
    WR – Funchess, John Brown, Godwin, TreQuan Smith

    In other words, his WR core sucks. My gut tells me to stand pat, what do you think. There’s a possibility that I could keep Gurley, if I make the trade, for a 2nd round next season….but I’m more worried about this season right now, lol.

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      I think you do it.

      1. Really? What WR would you want back from him?

  21. WIth the news on AJ Green. We recommending picking up Jon Ross where available before the end of this weeks games?

  22. Chris Carson or Miller ? I’m my flex worried CC work go

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo

      CC is a game-time decision, just see if he suits up.

      Miller isn’t a bad play.

  23. Trubisky or Wilson ?

    1. Post By woo.jonathanwoo


  24. Rankings have Chubb over Miller this week are we not worried about the gameflow of this game only allowing him 10 or so touches?
