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.
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
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.
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.
