PRO Trashman’s Week 1 Flex Rankings: RB, WR, TE

Trashman HeaderOften times, there is nothing tougher (or more important) than deciding who your weekly flex-plays are. It can be a mind-numbing experience having to make cross-positional projections.

This season, our RosterWatch PRO community will have personal and exclusive access to our very own disgusting Trashman, who has carefully curated his personal weekly flex rankings in order to help you in gaining input about your roster decisions. Please refer to the Rankings tab for our staff positional rankings.

(Based on .5 PPR scoring).

  1. 12 team ppr. I am very light on RBs.
    I have saquon, Aaron Jones, Michael carter

    I have 9 wrs.
    Should I from Elijah Moore or rahndale more and pick up Justin Jackson or Tony Jones jr?
    Should I drop both and pick up or just one?

    1. It’s hard to say not knowing who all your WRs are, but I’d def add Jackson for Rondale. We’ll know what kind of action Jones is getting after Week 1.

  2. Post By Show Me Your TDs

    all drafts went nuclear heres my 16 teamer Full PPR

    QB: Mayfield
    RBs: A Jones, Gibson, Edwards, M Carter, and Bernard
    WRs: Lambs, Higgins, AB, Jeudy, Callaway, E. Moore
    TE: Everett
    D: Bucs
    K: Zeurlein

    question in another PPR league, would you drop Bernard to pick up M Carter as Carter was higher on the cheat sheet? Its PPR and my other RBs in that league are Jones, D Mont, Harris and Michel. Thanks

    1. Carter is the better back than Bernard.

  3. 1/2 point ppr Jacobs, A Brown, Beckham or Gordon. need one in my flex

    1. Josh Jacobs or Odell Beckham here for me. Edge to Jacobs.

      1. Unless that’s AJ Brown, then definitely AJ Brown.

  4. .5 PPR

    Would you drop will fuller or mike evans to pick up Tony Jones?

    1. Mike williams**** not Mike Evans haha

    2. Hard to say without looking at your whole roster, but if you’re not deep at RB and flush at WR, I could add Jones for Williams.

    0.5 PPR

    Pick 2 RB, 2WR and Flex:

    RB: Zeke, Gibson, James Robinson, M. Carter
    Jefferson, Higgins, AB, Hardman, Sutton

    Currently Have:


    1. I like what you have here. Sutton brings some TD upside, but I’m not sure how well he’ll produce with Teddy right away.

  6. Tannehill
    Kamara JRobinson MSanders MDavis CEdmonds RMostert
    DHopkins KAllen JChase Antonio Brown JLandry

    PPR 10 team play 1QB 3WR 2RB 1 Flex 1TE

    Can I drop any of these players for TyWilliams-Balt?

  7. With the news on Gus and the likelihood of Murray being picked up by the Ravens, would you use the number 1 waiver wire pick on either him or Tyson Williams..

    1. On Williams for sure.

  8. As a Ravens fan, I’m sick. Had Gus and Williams and Lev Bell are gone. Looking in another direction (full ppr) Elijah Moore or Terence Marshall? At the rate the Ravens are going they may be checking in on Ray Rice soon

    1. I’m personally thinking about starting Elijah Moore this week, I think they might unleash him.

  9. 12team ppr

    Julio Jones, tee Higgins, Sutton, antonio brown, Elijah more, fuller, Marquez brown and mecole hardman.

    Should I drop someone and pick up
    Tony Jones jr or latavious Murray after the Gus edwards news

    1. you can drop Hardman to pick up an RB, but do you really think BAL pkcks up LAtavius after already picking up Bell and then now Freeman? I think Latavius ends up somewhere tho, so he is a fine stash.

  10. Need to drop someone in order to activate CD lamb. Would you rather drop Trey Lance or Mac Jones in a 2QB league? Already have Mahomes and Kyler. Have JTaylor, CEH, Ekeler, Mike Davis, and Swift at RB. Woods, Jamarr Chase, Aiyuk, and Sutton at WR. And Andrews and Goedert at TE. Appreciate it guys!

    1. I’m holding onto lance given your other options, you can truly wait for a guy to emerge. What a sick team my lord.

      1. Appreciate it! That’s what my thinking was. Would you drop any of them to pick up Tyson Williams? Was thinking maybe Swift

  11. 6 pt td league. Do you trade kyler Murray to receive Lamar Jackson straight up

  12. Best pick up? PPR. Bell, Freeman or Latavius?

    1. Bell and Freeman have just looked SOOOOOOO washed and they seem to really like Ty’Son, so I guess I’d choose Latavius of those three. Bell and Freeman have legit looked bad and I have no idea why the Ravens signed Freeman over him. I wouldn’t drop anyone good for any of them at this time, tho

      1. If these two fuck my Ty’son shares I’ll give trashman a gift card to Walmart for some much needed new clothes.

      2. in an 8 team league as you RB8 would you rather have M Carter, L Bell or L Murray?

    When will the DFS Generator start working?

    1. after we make the intitial cheat sheets tomorrow!

      1. Fuck ya!

  14. Mooney, callaway, drake, singletary, sermon.

    Dropping any to go for tyson williams? 0.5ppr

    1. I would drop Drake to pick him up absolutely.

  15. Post By John Hunsberger

    Got offered a trade from the Edward’s / dobbins owner (brutal I know)

    I would get Robert Woods
    For Melvin Gordon or aj Dillon

    My other hbs are : Eckler , Mixon , gio and roundtree
    Wrs: evans juedy robinson AB

    1. How many WR and/or flex can you start?

  16. Still have edwards on your sheet lol
    it’s week one you already being lazy ya dirtbag

  17. Need to drop one to pick up a Kicker–Lat Murray, Waddle, M Calloway or T Lance.

    My roster is as follows:

    QB- Hurts, T Lance
    RB- J Rob, Javante Williams, Mostart, M Gordon, T Sermon, Lat Murray
    WR- Tyreek, DK Metcalf, Cee Dee, Waddle, M Calloway
    TE- Hooper

    What do you think?

    1. Murray is the easy drop here.

  18. Ty”son Williams Q — thinking about putting in a waiver claim FAAB — need a drop; I am thinking of dropping Rondale Moore — (other WRs are Hill, Lamb, Higgins, Callaway, Elijah Moore and Deebo). we can start 3 RB/3WR or 2 RB and 4 WR 1/2 PPR)
    What do you think? Rondale or one of the others?


    1. or with these RBs do I need to bother — A.Jones, Gibson, Damien Harris, Javonte williams, Dillon, Gainwell.

    2. I’d do that too.

    Good Morning,

    In the past, I’ve used Fantistics and Pro Football Guys. This year I switched to Roster Watch and loved the design and layout of the Cheat Sheet.

    I also love the Matchup Tool but am trying to understand how to use it relative to projected points. I play in two Yahoo 10 team Full Point PPR leagues. For example, Keenan Allen has a projection (right or wrong of 14.83 points), but the Matchup Tool has Washington’s D with a rating of red 27. Jerry Jeudy has a projection of 12.58 points against Blue 10.

    BTW, thanks to the awesome Cheat Sheet, I also have Devante Adams, Antonio Brown, Shenault, Kelce and Landry.

    Thank you for any advice you can provide and for a product that is by far the best!!!


    1. Matchup tool is too help your start decisions.
      Blue is good. Red is bad.
      Yes Allen has tougher matchup over Jeudy. I still start Allen over him in this case.
      Don’t listen to the trash can unless you’re desperate lol.

    Thanks! lol

  21. PPR: I have Miles Sanders as my Bellcow and really want to handcuff him prior to Sunday. I have the following WRs that I could drop to pick up Kenneth Gainwell: Mike Williams, Jarvis Landry, Elijah Moore, Mecole Hardman… My other WRs are Calvin Ridley and Stefon Diggs… My other RBs are Josh Jacobs, Darrell Henderson and Trey Sermon

    1. Moore would be the drop based on the offense he’s in.

  22. in an 8 team league, as you RB 8, would you rather have M Carter, L Bell or L Murray?

  23. 12 team ppr. Is Juwan Johnson or Adam Trautman the TE to have in NO? Thank you

  24. Why is ty’son Williams ranked so low?? I need to start either him or damien harris. Full ppr thanks.

  25. It hadn’t been updated since the news. I’d still start Harris in a PPR.

  26. PPR flex. Need two of Mike Davis, Diontae Johnson, Marquise Brown, Jerry Jeudy, Darrell Henderson, CEH. Thank you

  27. PPR
    Can I trust Barkley today? I have him, MSanders, MDavis, MCarter and JJackson.

    And, would you play any of those RBs at flex over Diggs, Julio, or Thielen?


  28. I’d play Sanders over Barkley, and I’d start Davis over Julio

    1. Sorry, Trashman. I can play 2 RB and 2WR plus a flex. So, Sanders and Davis at RB and then I have Diggs, Thielen, Julio, and Elijah Moore as WRs. Thinking
      RB Sanders and Davis
      WR Diggs and Thielen
      Flex Barkley or Julio
