PRO Trashman’s Week 17 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).

    Cordarelle not even on the rankings?

    1. TRASHMAN!!!!!

      1. I see him on there lol

  2. In League Super Bowl thanks to RW — 1/2 point PPR

    a Jones
    R jones
    t hill
    higgins (flex)
    Bills D
    (hope to start Bagley )

    On the Bench — dillion, gibson, j williams, Jeff wilson, Knox, Mattison and Cowboys

    Would you make any changes in starting lineup ?

    1. The only one I might consider is Javonte if Gordon sits or is limited. Otherwise I think you have it correct. What a salty squad!!! Bring home the title for RWNation!!!!

  3. How does Cousins now being out affect your views on Cook and Jefferson this week?

    Other options at RB instead of Cook are Michel and Pollard.

    Other options at WR instead of Jefferson are Evans (assuming he plays) and Pittman (assuming Wentz plays) and Claypool.

    Not feeling great.

    1. If Cousin’s is out I’d downgrade both those guys to WR2 / RB2 w/ Mannion in

  4. Trey Lance, Tyler Huntley, or stick with Dak Prescott?

    1. I’d roll Dak in your championship lol

  5. Need to start 2 RBs and a flex
    RB J. Patterson WASH
    RB E. Mitchell 49ers
    RB D. Swift DET
    RB D. Singletary BUF
    WR C. Kirk ARI

    1. Probably Swift + Mitchell + Patterson – I might slide Kirk in if I was unsure of any of those RBs come game time

  6. It looks like the Bills will be playing in the snow Sunday. I assume that snow hurts the PK (Bass) but helps the Bill’s Defense. – Do you agree? thanks

    1. Every season we have a Bills weather question this time of year!!! Yes, I agree w/ that assesment

  7. I’m really on the fence about putting A-Ra St. Brown at my Flex instead of R. Penny. Am I crazy to not trust the Seahwaks?

    1. you aren’t crazy, I’d lean Penny but ARSB has been money in PPR. I think in full PPR I might even lean ARSB.

    Looking at C. Patterson, J Patterson, Pittman or Boston scott for my final flex? Thoughts?

    1. Answered in the other thread.

  9. Pollard or Swift? Your rankings have Swift wayyyyy down there, but didn’t know when those were done. Also, do you trust Deonte Harris? Thank you!

    1. I had Trashman fix that, I like Swift this week- Campbell has been dropping hints all week that he really wants to get Swwift going this week.

  10. It’s been a good year I have 2 teams playing for Championships. Thanks RW. Now to the unfinished business. Covid has killed my RB’s in both my leagues.
    – Need 2 from the following: Barkley, Rojo, Buckhead, B Scott or, J Patterson.
    – Which Starting D Saints, Fins or Pats
    Thanks again, for a great season RW.

    1. If Howard doesn’t go get in Scott and Rojo. If Howard is going to go, I guess I hold my nose and go Barkley Rojo. Would definitely stick with NE defese. Good luck Big man, thanks for the continued support.

    Lance, Huntley,or tua??

    1. We have Lance projecting best of him and Huntley, by about 1.5 points — but if you don’t trust him it would be fine to start Huntley (not that Huntley is a model of trustworthiness).

    I need to start 3 of these RBs in full ppr
    Darell Williams
    Also Moreau or Higbee at TE (thank you Waller ugh)

    1. Mixon, Zeke, Darrel Williams for me – good luck and happy new year

  13. Need 3 (any position) of this crew in a full ppr: JPatterson, MVS, Gallup, Rex, BScott, Penny or MEvans (thought I heard positive news on him this am but didn’t see him on the latest rankings). Thanks guys, made it to the finals in both of my leagues.

    1. I find Evans extremely difficult to trust coming off a hammy and COVID but he’s kind of a intriguing option here. If Howard sits, get in Scott and … maybe Penny unless you really don’t mind risking it with Evans.

  14. Who should I play in the championship. My opponent has Stafford. 0.5 PPR. Need two out of Chase, OBJ or Allen. Never won the championship before and I’m a 10 point dog

    M. Gordon

    T. Pollard

    Thanks again for great season rosterwatch!

  16. One last question. Would you consider benching Jefferson for Pittman?
