PRO Trashman’s Week 16 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 Keep in mind, these are not our official RosterWatch Week 16 rankings, but we’ve learned over time to pay extra-special attention to what the Trashman might have up his filthy sleeve – and where he stacks up players against one another for the coming weekend’s slate cross-positionally.

Our OFFICIAL rankings page here on the site will continue to be updated through the day Saturday and Sunday morning as more information comes in and we become more comfortable with player slotting. In the meantime, have a look at how the Trashman sees Week 16’s Sunday-thru-Monday slate shaking out – as his inputs to our formula are a key (albeit smelly and gross) component. (Based on .5 PPR scoring).

  1. Hey, I’m so confused. I’m standard (not 0.5 ppr). I have Martavis Bryant, Mike Wallace, Jamaal Williams, Kerwynn Williams, and Sterling Shepard to choose from as my flex. Does the format change your ranking away from Wallace?

    1. not really. wallace will get most of the targets with maclin out against a pitiful colts secondary.

  2. Thanks, Trashman! Scrambling to come up with a fighting lineup this weekend with AB/Lee out. Have Goodwin, Hogan, Wright, E. Rogers, McKissic in full PPR – assuming Goodwin is the first choice per your rankings, need 2 with best upside. Wishing you a good holiday…thanks.

    1. that would be hogan and wright. if hogan sits for some reason, then mckissic. good luck, and happy holidays!

  3. If it’s storming in Baltimore, do I swap out Flacco for Mariotta or Trubisky?

  4. Need to bring some Gold home to the Nation this weekend!

    Need 2 of these: JuJu, Diggs or the Anaconda?

    Also should I roll out Olsen at TE or go Rudolph?

    Going for 3 titles this weekend and want to finish strong!

    1. juju, gordon, olsen. good luck!

    i am in the ship flex? i normally start hyde but not this week . i need sheppard , Bryant , or josh Gordon or dede. ppr. i am lthinking sheppard . it should be the better game

    1. shepard is safe in a ppr. gordon if you need the upside

  7. I know it is very late in the year, but, how do you actually use the TD Dependency Tool? 25-30 percent being average. The players in the fifty’s hardly play and I get not playing the zeros. How do I use the tool for the others that are not in those ranges.

    Thanks for your help

    1. i mainly use it for a tiebreaker between two players i can’t decide to start. high floor, low td dep is best

  8. thoughts on starting Vikings DEF @GB or Panthers DEF vs. TB? your ranks have Panthers higher but consensus ranks have Vikings higher, plus the matchup tool seems to favor the Vikings? wondering why you have Panthers ranked so high?

    1. panthers just more opportunistic. i’m fine rolling with vikes, especially with rodgers out.

  9. PPR. Can only start 2 —– aj Green , JUJU , Marvin Jones , Josh Gordon , K Allen ???

    Have tyreke and evans. Starting gronk. Olson or dez for flex? Dez lost me a championship birth last week and im hatin on him right now!!! Leaning olson… thoughts?

    1. i’m fine starting olsen. the panthers have mccaffrey, stewart, and funchess potentially taking targets away, while it’s pretty much the zeke, dez show against seattle.

    Dede or dez?

  12. Need 2 standard. Tate, Martavius, Woods.

      1. Thanks Trashman, have a good holiday!

  13. Need one for my flex (1 ppr): K. Cole, M. Bryant, CJ Anderson, or Riddick (I already have JuJu as one of my receivers). Thank you!

    Quick QB question. Foles or Goff? Thanks!

  15. Two important questions to win my championship:
    PPR need two -S. Shepard, M Goodwin, M Jones, G Tate, (I start Stafford) AND
    PPR need one – M Davis, K Bibbs, Gilislee, Gallman, Powell
    Thank You!
