Welcome back to my weekly rankings, folks! Injuries are ravaging our rosters, but the show must go on. Last week I had some good calls, such as Chris Hogan over Brandin Cooks, Doug Martin was in my top-15 running backs, I had Austin Seferian-Jenkins in my top-7 tight ends, and DeShaun Watson was a top-5 QB for me. I had my fair share of bad calls too. Mike Evans and Todd Gurley did not outperform the rest of their positions, I left Cam Newton just outside of my top 10 quarterbacks, and Devante Parker didn’t get the chance to be a top-10 WR for the week.

Let’s try this again, I will be updating these throughout the week, sometimes 436 times per day! Here are my Week 6 rankings…

    Thanks for the rankings MB!
    PPR league, I need to drop one of Rudolph or Brate. Brate seems like he’s a big target in the end zone which is certainly a plus. Who would you drop?

    Thanks!

      @Noam: that’s a tough call. Rudolph usually is a big red zone target too. I guess you drop Rudolph at this point

    Thanks for the rankings MB

    Two trade questions:

    Which side of both deals is preferable? And second question is which trade to pursue. – Graham to replace Brate or McCaffery to improve rb depth?

    Trade 1: Benjamin and Brate for J. Graham

    Trade 2: Benjamin and J. Allen for McCaffery.

    Thx

      @steve: Benjamin side for both

    I was thinking of rolling Tennessee again but then I just know they’ll give up another 50 points somehow

    I’m going TB for now, but Rams are also available – but Rams weakness on D is the Jags strength (run game)

    • MB

      Mb says:

      @William Hung: TB should be at least damage control. Tough to stream this year

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Mb: Ok i’m going Rams then – hopefully they can get a few sacks and limit Fournette’s TDs

    The D is where I am struggling this week Pats is available but they suck . I know their highly ranked but its difficult to trust them.

      @Jake: you most likely won’t get negative so I’d do it

    Thanks MB! Quick trade question: I’m near the bottom of my 12-team standard league, and have had David Johnson on my bench all year as a stash. I was offered Aaron Jones for him. I am inclined to trade Johnson because I need to make a move, is Jones worth it? Thanks!

    • MB

      @mrm3711: I guess you kind of have to. Not a bad deal if you think it’ll take you over the hump

      • mrm3711 says:

        @Mb: I ended up countering for Buck Allen and got it, I’m pumped, thanks!

          @mrm3711: yeah that’s even better, good luck!

    Hi my friend, great work as always. I’m 5-0 but just lost obj and need to improve wr. 12 team standard. I have russel Wilson, fournette, hunt, kamara, j stew, Collins and McGuire, and michael thomas, larry fitz, garçon and Corey Davis and Asj. I may make this offer, larry fitz and j stew for tyreek hill. What do u think of that? Any other thoughts? Thank u!

      @Mike: thank you, sup [email protected]Mike: yeah, I’d do it, you’re pretty deep, get a game changer for some old guys

    who would you rather have ROS (can you list in order?):

    Mack, Ellington, Adrian Peterson, Breida, Darkwa, Drake, Burkhead, Connor

    thanks

      Mb says:

      @The Fantasy Dick: Mack, Breida, Drake, Ellington, Peterson, Darkwa, Burkhead, Conor

      • Brent

        The Fantasy Dick says:
        (link)

        @Mb: Is Gore droppable? Or would you recommend hanging on to him?

        My RBs currently are: Gore, McGuire, McKinnon, Ellington, Jamal Williams, and DJ

        I am dropping williams, hopefully to get Mack back. And I was considering dropping Ellington for Breida or Will Fuller or Alfred Morris (and hoping for a Zeke suspension)….

        The problem is Gore, Mack, Breida, and McGuire and all have byes week 11….but that’s a long way off.

        Any suggestions?

        thanks

        TFD

        • MB

          Mb says:
          (link)

          @The Fantasy Dick: I wouldn’t bother with Morris at this point. I’d target Mack for Williams and worry about the bye later. You can always drop Gore later

          • Brent

            The Fantasy Dick says:
            (link)

            @Mb: Keep Ellington? or drop Ellington for Breida? Or Fuller? Or Drake?

            Lol – this RB thing is driving me crazy

            thanks!

            • MB

              Mb says:
              (link)

              @The Fantasy Dick: I’d keep Ellington this week and see how AP fits in. He might be a dud. Ellington is a PPR guy anyways

              • Brent

                The Fantasy Dick says:
                (link)

                @Mb: Cool. I’m gonna go for mack and hang tight on everyone else. It sux cuz I dropped mack and breida for Ellington and McKinnon because I needed help now or I’m finished. Breida is risky even if Hyde goes down I guess because the niners don’t get tds

      • The Harrow says:
        (link)

        @Mb: wow, if drake ends up donig anyting i’m giving you FULL razzball credit here.

        • The Harrow says:
          (link)

          @The Harrow: and jaywrong likes drake, but i’d bet not over AP/ellington/darkwing

        • MB

          Mb says:
          (link)

          @The Harrow: I’d hate to miss out on him if anything happens to Ajayi, one of my favorite cuffs.

    Is Fuller a sell-high? Two 2TD weeks back to back, but can’t help but notice he was only targeted 3x this past week. Is he someone you’d test the trade waters on?

    Hey MB! in 12 team PPR – would you trade away Diggs & Hyde to get Forunette?

  11. SR says:

    Offfered D. Murray for K. Benjamin and J. Allen. Good deal?

    MB good sir. How are you? I appreciated your advice last week. My team won. I am in a 0.5 PPR ten team league. Could you please help me with my line up for week 6? I appreciate it.

    QB1- Winston or Mariota? or Watson
    RB1-Freeman? Miller? Coleman? C. Thompson?
    RB2-Elliott? Miller? Coleman? Henry? C.Thompson?
    WR- C. Hogan? Hopkins? or Funchess?
    WR2-Hopkins or Hogan or Funchess?
    F-L. Miller? T. Coleman? D. C.Thompson? or Funchess?
    TE- D. Walker
    K-Bryant
    D-HOU? or MIN?

  13. Todd says:

    Hey man!

    .5 PPR league my RBs are Gordon, hunt, mcaffery, Aaron jones, McKinnon, Adrian Peterson, Austin ekeler (Gordon cuff), chark west (Hunt cuff). DJ on one of my 2 IR spots

    My WRs we start 3 could be 4 with flex :
    Keenan Allen, Baldwin, tyreek hill, chris hogan , d Parker , will fuller

    — based on my team would you look to package mcaffery + either Baldwin or tyreek hill? If yes what example of WR or RB should I target via a trade?

    — do you think chris hogan stays this hot? Or is now the tine to sell high? If I can move hogan for one of these do it or no? Kamara? Mark Ingram? Brandin cooks? Amari Cooper? Crabtree? Shady McCoy (I may have to include a piece here)

    — what about selling high on fuller to get either brandin cooks, kamara or mixon? Do you think fuller sustains his pace?

    Thanks man!

  14. MB

    Mb says:
    (link)

    I would package them for Dez or Hopkins, yes I think Hogan stays hot, I would try and get Kamara any way that you can

    • Todd says:
      (link)

      @Mb:

      Gracias man! Would you start with my mcaffery + hill for Hopkins or Baldwin as the starting point?

      Just had this idea but prob not enough ammo, right? My mcaffery + Baldwin or hill for AJ green or Jordy? Of course I’d take those WRs but is my offer fair? Jordy & green are same owner he’s all around stacked he’s the best team in the league he has Lamar Miller, zeke Elliot, gurley, Watkins, Jordy, green, Jordan Reed to name a few & I face him this week aye carumba

      • Todd says:
        (link)

        @Todd:

        Side note kamara owner lost OBJ that’s why I’m considering selling my fuller for kamara or even Parker for kamara

        Thanks !

        • MB

          Mb says:
          (link)

          @Todd: yeah you should try both. It’s worth a shot, just shop around you might be surprised

  15. Jake says:
    (link)

    Would you trade Brady and Fitz for Hunt and Derek Carr ?

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @Jake: yes I want all of the Hunt

  16. The imp says:
    (link)

    Out of these 6 (start 1q, 3w, no flex, PPR)
    Cousins/wentz (Stanford, Ben next best on waivers)
    Hilton/garçon/Jeffrey/fuller (twilliams, jbrown best FA)

    1. Who is the drop to sit Powell if he can’t play?
    2. What chances Powell plays?

    • The imp says:
      (link)

      @The imp: Nevermind. Traded Fuller for White (okay not great, I know). Have time now to try and trade one of my QBs.

      • MB

        Mb says:
        (link)

        @The imp: I like the trade, actually. Good job.

        • the imp says:
          (link)

          @Mb: Thanks for the good vibes. Still fighting after dealing with injuries to DJ, Arob, Eifert, Powell and Luck (plus two kickers who have made it to the IR too!).

          The WR rich and QB needy teams are not in alignment right now.

          Do you see Wentz as droppable for any of those WRs list above (I’m think John Brown has the most upside) or would you wait for a better waiver wonder/ opportunity and/or more clarity on the ROS value of Cousins and Wentz?

          • MB

            Mb says:
            (link)

            @the imp: no I like Carson Wentz a lot

    Was just offered a trade.
    TY for dez
    Wondering about your thoughts.

      @Ed: I like the Dez side at this point

      • Ed says:
        (link)

        @Mb: meaning the guy whose getting dez or giving dez. Thanks as always for the info.

    MB,
    My good sir. In a half PPR league, which side wins:
    Julio
    Hunt

    pick a side youd rather have.

    AB, Abdullah or Adams, Ajayi

    Matt – you are really high on Ricardo Louis this week – am I really playing him over Jamison Crowder and Mike Wallace in my .5 PPR league?

    My WRs on my team are: Amari Cooper, Jamison Crowder, DeVante Parker, Martavis Bryant, Mike Wallace and Ricardo Louis

    I’m also debating if I should roll Mack as my FLEX – if DeVante doesn’t play, then it’ll be between Bryant and Wallace.

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @William Hung: he’s in line for 8-10 targets against a defense that just lost 2 of its best 3 players. Damn right I’m high on Louis! I think Cleveland scores more points than they have all year.

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Mb: Alright, so I have 3 WRs and a FLEX spot to fill – based off your rankings, I’m rolling:

        WR – Louis, Cooper, Parker (If healthy)

        Where do I go with my FLEX? Mack, Crowder, Wallace, or Bryant? If Parker is a no-go I’m guessing I should go Crowder since he has the best matchup

  21. Corey says:
    (link)

    PPR Blount or Buck Allen

    Would you cut gallman for any of these guys: hunter henry, evan engram or perine. Perine supposed to start this week with Kelly out. Henry has been getting more involved, engram no catches last week but wr decimated but faces den and Seattle next 2. This is a flex spot for me. .5 ppr. Thx

  24. MB

    Mb says:
    (link)

    I personally wouldn’t, but if you were to, I’d target Perine

  25. Brent

    MB,

    12 tm standard, start 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 flex

    my rbs: gore, mack, mckinnon, mcguire, ellington, david johnson
    my wrs: Hogan, Jeffery, K Benjamin, Garcon

    Would you trade:

    Gore/Garcon for Breida/Fuller? or Collins/Fuller
    or
    Ellington/Garcon for Collins/Fuller? or Breida/Fuller

    What about Garcon for Fuller straight up?

    There is a guy in my league I think I can get a deal done with…which deal do you like the best or should I hold Garcon and Gore/Ellington?

    thanks

    TFD

      @The Fantasy Dick: He also has Rob Kelley who he may be willing to deal as the RB in the trade

  26. Brent

    The Fantasy Dick says:
    (link)

    Last question: If I don’t do a deal, would you rather have Ellington over Darkwa (who is still on waivers)?

      • Brent

        The Fantasy Dick says:
        (link)

        @Mb: He countered asking for benjamin/Ellington for fuller/collins…would you do that?

  27. Ron P says:
    (link)

    1) How would you rank these 4 players ROS in a .25 PPR league? Julio, Michael Thomas, Jordy, Freeman.

    2) Rob Kelly or Cohen?

    Thanks!

      @Ron P: Freeman, Julio, Thomas, Jordy

        @Mb: kelly

  28. William says:

    Alex Collins was just dropped in my league by the Zeke owner in favor of Morris – do I try to snag Collins up? Current RBs are – Ty Mont, Freeman, Kamara, Gallman, Mack or do I sit tight?

    • MB

      Mb says:
      (link)

      @William: looks like a good crew already

      • William Hung says:
        (link)

        @Mb: it’s a crew that’s 2-3

  29. William Hung says:
    (link)

    Another odd move in my league – Jack Doyle was just dropped… I’m guessing he’s a no-brainer waiver add

    Who do I drop? Martavis Bryant, Mike Wallace or Marlon Mack?

    As a reminder, the rest of my WRs are: Cooper, Crowder, Parker, Louis, and Mike Wallace. I’m hesitant to drop Wallace because he has a solid matchup v. CHI and he’s in my flex right now with Ty Mont practicing, but his snap count for sunday could be limited
