Week 7 Garbage Grab

Trashman’s Garbage Grab: Week 7

Lots of questionable tags that could easily turn into outs before games start on Sunday. Don’t get caught with your pants. (Down). Here’s the grab going into Week 7…


Running Back

Rashaad Penny, Seahawks – 36% owned

No Chris Carson and a gimpy Alex Collins makes the fresh of IR Penny the best bet out of the Seahawks backfield. DeeJay Dallas has some value in PPR formats as well. 


Rhamondre Stevenson, Patriots – 21% owned

Stevenson scored last week, and is starting to get enough targets to warrant standalone value in PPR formats. The fact that the Giants have given up the 2nd most fantasy points to RBs this season only makes him more intriguing. 


Devonta Freeman – 22% owned

Latavius Murray is out, so Freeman looks like the next best option for now. Le’Veon Bell and perhaps Ty’Son Williams will be involved as well, but Freeman is the favorite to get the most touches against a middling Cincy defense. 


Wide Receiver

Rashod Bateman, Ravens – 29% owned

Bateman got 6 targets in his first action of the season and ran the 2nd most routes of any Baltimore WR. He’s got the talent to be the no.1, but I’ll settle for no.2 with Sammy Watkins on the shelf this week. 


Jamison Crowder, Jets – 23% owned

Crowder is averaging 8 targets a game since he rejoined the team in Week 4. He offers Zack Wilson a much needed safety blanket over the middle against a New England team that just got torched by the Cowboys. 


Amon-Ra St. Brown, Lions – 17% owned

St. Brown is the most targeted Lions WR over the last 3 weeks, going over 65 yards in 2 of those contests. He’ll be busy this week trying to keep up with the Rams offense. 


Russell Gage, Falcons – 8% owned

Gage will see his first action since Week 2, when he had 7 targets. He’ll have a cushy matchup against a reeling Miami defense, that is the 3rd best matchup for opposing WRs. 


Tight End

OJ Howard, Buccaneers – 5% owned

Howard popped in Week 6, and he’ll have another chance to make hay in Week 7 with both Rob Gronkowski and Antonio Brown sitting out. He’s one of the best TE streaming options this week. 


Cj Uzomah, Bengals – 17% owned

Uzomah has scored 3 times in the past 3 weeks, and though he’s not getting a ton of targets, they’re certainly high-yield in nature. Baltimore has given up the 3rd most points to TEs this season, so expect the Bengals to attack this weakness.




Carson Wentz, Colts – 37% owned

Wentz is really the best QB option under 40% ownership, even with Ty Hilton being questionable, throwing 2 TDs in each of his last 3 games. He’ll have plenty of other receiving options at hand to exploit San Fran’s surprisingly tame secondary. 


  1. Need two from this list. D Smith, Gibson, Penny or Capt kirk thanks. Oh almost forgot have Julio on bench too,.

    1. Smith and Gibson. Don’t want to have to wait in Collins availability

  2. Post By

    Seeing my whole team is on bye this week Need 2 between these ppr

    Devonta Smith
    Brandon Aiyuk
    Devontae Booker

  3. And for league #2 — need 2 RBs -Gibson, Dillon, K Herbert or D Williams
    Also, need to drop one of the Bears RBs; which one should go? Thanks.

    1. Gibson and williams. That answers your other question too

  4. 12 team, 1 QB, .5PPR Dynasty

    Guy in my league offered me 2 2022 1st RD picks and Michael Carter for Javonte Williams. My RBs right now are Dillon, Najee Harris, Alexander Mattison and Elijah Mitchell. I’ve traded away some older RBs to better my WRs.

    1. I like it. Carter’s arrow is up

  5. Trade Question PPR

    Getting : D. Smith
    – He has Henderson

    Giving: Michel and Aiyuk

    Wrs: D.johnson, Kupp, Allen, Claypool, Aiyuk, Bateman, Pitts
    RBs: Zeke, Pollard, Harris, Mitchell, Carter

    1. I don’t think you need to make this trade. Smith isn’t a marked upgrade over any of your starters

  6. Trade question. Who is the best option to trade for with my first round draft pick. 12 team 0.5 PPR. Options are T Hill, D Adams, Ekeler or CMC. Could keep Hill in the 4th round but all others cannot keep.

  7. Hard to be against Adams. Such a high built in floor.

  8. 12 team .5ppr. 5-1 record

    I have one spot open for WW pick-up. of the following, who do you like for a speculative add?

    S Michel, Gainwell, Stephenson, D Freeman or Tyler Bass as a set and forget kicker?


    1. J Paterson is also available if you think Gibson could be put on IR.

    2. Post By Byron Lambert

      Probably Michel or Freeman esp if you need a play this wk. Not sure what you mean by forgetting kicker. Make sure and fill out an entire starting roster.

  9. Post By

    Flex- Penny, Stevenson or M. Carter
    WR- Tyler Johnson or Lazard

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Probably Carter and Lazard

  10. Post By Show Me Your TDs

    Flex question .5ppr for RB and 1ppr for WR

    Mi. Carter or R Moore? currently have in Carter but second guessing. Thanks

    1. Post By Byron Lambert


  11. Gents – PPR League – need 2 out of Bateman, Boyd, A Robinson, and K Herbert…..Thanks!

    1. Prob Bateman and Robinson

  12. Pick 3.. PPR.. Boyd, Pascal, Freeman Hardman

    1. I’d play Freeman and Hardman for sure- then you have to decide b/t Pascal in the rain and Boyd who has been terrible. I’d probably go w/ Boyd- but that is your choice

  13. AJ Dillon or Miles Gaskin for one of my RBs

    1. I’d play the matchup + the last two week snap counts and touches

  14. .5 PPR

    Should I start both Aaron Jones and Dillon?

    Or instead of Dillon I could put in Penny,

    Or I could drop jaret Patterson for Bolden, Jj Taylor, pettis, or Aiyuk ?

    1. I’d prob roll Penny over Dillon

    Morning Gents (ppr)

    Flex sheet/rankings have me with a panthers stack today… darnold, Hubbard, Moore

    Do I pivot to Williams (kc) out of flex and to RB and put AJ brown in the flex?

    I hate cannibalizing points with those stacks…

    Thank you

    1. I would play Williams over Hubbard anyways. I would make sure AJ Brown is in your lineup over Hubbard as well

      1. Post By

        Thanks B.

        As always you are the best.

  16. .5 PPR

    Play Julio? Or add one of Hardman, Pittman JR. , Rondale Moore, or Bateman to play over him? I would be dropping Trey Lance , I have Kyler Murray at QB

    1. I’d play Julio

  17. Is it time to drop Julio Jones yet? I wished I could have played Michael carter… and that’s bad
