PRO Trashman’s Week 6 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.

    Would you drop aj geeen (5th wr ) for Perine if you need more rbs (not a starter just a stash ).. I know it’s a long shot but I don’t see any value in AJ anymore

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Maybe so- I think AJG is pretty close to being droppable – would rather it be for someone better than Perine- but it could work. Also, it sounds like you need spot you can recycle on your roster for waivers every wk. Losing AJG might unshackle you for that. Also, don’t forget you can do a consolidation trade 2:1 (tradecast) to clear a roster spot for pickups

      1. Post By John Hunsberger

        Thanks .. been trying offering trades all day the dudes with the rbs are countering me my golloday for Damien Harris and Hunter Henery .. just not sold on it

  2. Ppr
    My Rbs :mixon, eckler, Gurley, d Montgomery, Gibson, Damien Harris, moss, akers
    My wrs: juju, Parker, shenault
    Trade offered : mixon and shenault for tyreek and jk dobins
    I would be getting tyreek and Dobbins.
    Should I take this offer?

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      I answered this in the other post where you asked –

      1. Thank you, I saw

  3. ARob and AJones are so closely ranked . . . I’m tempted to go with Jones in the flex because of the injury to V V (0.5 PPR). Thanks you all y’all do! #RWNation

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Man, those are two great options. Normally this would be an easy call, but ARob sure is juicy this week! You make a great point about VV being out. I’d probably go with Jones too. He’s a safe option with a lot of upside.

  4. Loaded squad in a 12 team standard scoring league have Henry, Hunt, A.Jones, and J.Robinson and can only start 3/4? Watch ya think?

    Same team Godwin, Kupp, ARob, Chark pick 2?

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Prob ARob and Kupp- might slide Godwin in over Kupp if he practices in full tomorrow-

  5. PPR Trade Question (4 player Keeper – 1st year)

    Getting: Carson and Godwin
    Giving: Gurley and Allen

    RBs: Zeke, Harris, Kelley, Moss
    Wrs: Robinson, Woods, Allen, Edelman, Ruggs, Aiyuk, Claypool, Ford, Hardman, Fulgham.

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      I don’t like the deal

  6. Hey guys, would you pick up T.Y. for D. Harris or Fournette. Have both DJ’s, Boyd, DHop, and Ridley at WR, at RB I have Mixon, Monty, David J., Harris, Fournette, Edmonds and Gaskins. Worried I might not have Ridley due to COVID shutdown. Thanks

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      I don’ think I would- even without Ridley you have solid WR

  7. Some dropped Diontae Johnson last night. I have Slayton and Ruggs,shoudl I drop one of them for Diontae? Standard League, Non PPR.

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Drop your kicker and pick him up- then decide what to do before kickoff on Sunday. Ideally you would trade two guys in a consolidation trade (Tradecast)

  8. Should I pick up Andy Dalton now and drop cousin just in case there is no game this week?

    1. I think there will be a game.

  9. By any chance, will your site have the matchup tool available for week 6?

    1. we are having an issue with our stat provider, but anticipate all tools up by tonight or tomorrow morning. if not, lord help us. The schedule change messed up the feed and it’s causing issues. Thank god there was not a TNF game tonight. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

  10. 10 team 1ppr. Drop Higbee for Schultz, Ebron, or Graham? Everett’s usage is scaring me.

    1. Sure, Higbee is fine to drop, he’s running the fewest routes of any fantasy viable TE at this time. I’d probably lean Schultz to see what his connection with Dalton is. Also might want to keep an eye on Trey Burton if he keeps getting 5 targets a game.

  11. How much of a hit does CEH take with the signing of Lev Bell? Should I try to trade CEH?
    My RBs Jacobs, Hunt, CEH, Lindsay, Swift

    1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      CEH takes a significant hit. He is still startable, but he is not what you paid for. I think you can reasonably expect 10-13 touches per game, and a few less for Bell. Things can change quick, but that seems like a safe projection.

      I would NOT trade CEH, as his value is perceived as low. If he comes out and has a big game and someone wants to give you your money back (a prem player) Than I think you can explore it. Good luck!

  12. Is Lev Bell going to be a game changer? I have CEH and Bell is a free agent. I could drop CEH and pick up Bell. Or drop David Johnson for Bell. Or do nothing. Help!

    My other league: Could drop Justin Jackson and pick up Bell. Have Eckeler on IR. Help! Thanks!

    1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      The fact that Lev Bell proactively chose to go to KC over say Miami, signals to me he believes he is still an elite RB. I don’t think anyone believes he is going to shove CEH out fo the way, but He will likely start with 8-10 touches and build from there.

      Bell def worth owning…do NOT drop CEH, he is one injury away from workhorse status again.

      I think ok to drop JJ for Bell, but not a must. Good luck

  13. Post By John Hunsberger

    Just got a trade offer need help (2 for 3)

    .5 ppr
    Lenny fornette and roby Anderson for my Mike Evans , derenest johnson and mecole

    Wrs – Golloday , Jefferson and Parker and green
    Rbs – JT , gibson , moss

    1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      I would advise against that trade. It could go poorly, but I like how things are setting up for Hardman with Watkins out. You may be able to fetch a nice return next week or soon after for Hardman. It is a gamble, but it has a nice high reward. Good luck!

  14. Who do you guys like ROS in full PPR: J Kelley or Perine?

    1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      You will hear me repeat this a lot in here. In 2020 there is no “ROS” as we have known it before. Situations are changing quicker than ever. We have not seen LP yet, but I’d still lean to Kelley bc we have seen him have a nice role.

  15. Post By Chelo Méndez

    Would you drop Dobbins or Swift for Christian Kirk, Preston Williams, Alshon Jeffrey, Keelan Cole or Curtis Samuel?

    1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      I would try to hols both JKD and Swift. I want to see how the Lions use Swift coming out of the bye. When you drafted JKD we knew he was going to take until week 6-8 until we really knew what he is going to be. Is there anyone else you can drop to p/u Preston Williams

  16. Need your help (1ppr):

    Trade my J.Robinson & David Johnson for M. Thomas & L.Bell?
    (I currently have WRs Julio Jones, Allen Robinson, Marquis Brown& J. Jefferson and my other RBs are J. Taylor, CEH, Zack Moss Damien Harris). Should I pull the trigger?

    1. Ok, i got another offer: J Rob & David Johnson for M.Thomas & L.Bell?

      J.Rob & J.Taylor for M. Thomas & L.Bell?

    NEED HELP with this Decision (1Ppr)

    J Rob & David Johnson for M.Thomas & L.Bell?

    J.Rob & J.Taylor for M. Thomas & L.Bell?

    My other WRs: Allen Robinson, Julio, Justin Jefferson & Marquise Brown

    My other RBs: CEH, Z. Moss, Damien Harris

    1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      I think you asked this in the other article. Ill give same answer. Trade away Robinson and DJ if you are doing that deal.

      1. Yes, thank you.

  18. .5 PPR

    Melvin Gordon owner..

    I was offered Philip Lindsay for Damien Harris, what do you think?

    Other RBs— Carson, Sanders, Gibson

    1. He also has Akers and Dobbins, would you prefer an Akers for Harris straight swap?

    2. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      Great trade for you. Lindsay is likely to have a significant role moving fwd; stand alone value is very much in play.

  19. Post By

    1 Pt PPR – Need two between Helaire, Taylor, Mixon and Mattison.

    Ryan or Minshew?

    1. Post By Alan Seslowsky

      Taylor is in a great spot this week. I’d roll with him and Mattison (if that game doesn’t happen, then Mixon)

      Great options. Add more active roster spots to your league!

  20. Would you trade Gurly and Cooks for Tyreek Hill? I currently have Josh Jacobs and A Jones at RB. Use Gurly in the flex. If give up Gurly would then use either Justin Jefferson or chase Edmonds in the flex. MY WR would be JuJu and Hill. I would be the one offering g.

  21. Another question , would you trade Matt Ryan for Justin Herbert?

  22. Hey, guys. I have a guy offering me amari cooper for Josh Allen. I have tannehill and fitz, but I’m still leaning towards “no”. Thoughts? My current WRs are Thomas, D Moore, Fuller5, MJones jr, and Shenault.


  23. Post By

    With Diontae Johnson ruled out should I put Chase Claypool in for my flex? I have Myles Gaskins in right now….I also have Jamison Crowder and Marquise Brown available on my bench as well. I have Julio Jones and Robby Anderson starting should I leave them be? Full PT PPR


  24. .5ppr trade. I have WRs Hopkins, Cooper, Metcalf, Shenault
    RBs Hunt, David Johnson, Mixon, Mattison
    TE Henry.
    Would you trade Henry and Mixon for Kittle and Swift
    or Cooper and Henry for Kittle and Swift or 2 of my other players,
    They have WR Chark, G Tate, Aiyuk, ABrown
    RB CEH, Ekeler, Kelley, Swift, Malcolm
    TE Kittle,Hooper

  25. Post By Jeffery Everage

    Drop Ingram for Perine? 12 tm SF/TEP FFPC dynasty. Other RBs: Jacobs/Singletary/Kelley/Gaskin/Mike Davis

  26. Post By

    10 Team PPR – Team name- Angry Midget Ninjas

    Sit 1 – Mike Evans, Devante Parker, Robby Anderson, Claypool. Already starting Ridley at WR.

    QB- Big Ben
    RB’s- Taylor and Lindsey.


  27. Dudes, need suggestions on lineup.
    2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 Flex
    WR: Julio, Golladay, AJ Brown, Devante, Ceedee, Laviska
