Welcome to our Week 8 streamer article.  We had a great week last week with the New York Giants DST and Ty Montgomery.  Let’s keep the momentum going this week!

Who are these people who are out on the NFL?  It seems like that is all that I hear about on podcasts and radio shows anymore.  I understand that good primetime games are hard to come by but bad football is better than no football, right?  I just know that in March when there’s no football, I’d much rather watch the Jaguars and Titans than a regular season basketball game.   Let’s get to some streamers…

Josh McCown, 1% Owned – It looks like McCown is going to get the nod in week 8 against the Jets.  The Jets actually have improved lately against the pass but despite the 0-7 record, the browns do have weapons on offense.  Terrelle Pryor should have be healthier than he was last week.  Duke Johnson is always a threat as a pass catcher and Isaiah Crowell went back to establishing a running game last week.  I think McCown will jumpstart this offense and jumpstart your quarterback spot if you need a fill in.

Alex Smith, 41% Owned – Look, there are a lot of teams on byes this week so sometimes you have to recommend the same quarterback for the 3rd week in a row.  There is nobody safer than Alex Smith for a lower price.  Smith has 4 straight weeks with at least 200 passing yards and a great matchup with a team who has allowed the 5th most passing touchdowns this year.

Russell Shepard, 2% Owned – A lot of people thought that Adam Humphries would play the next man up with Vincent Jackson going down for the season.  It seems that he is set in his role and Russell Shephard is going to step in and take some targets.  Last week, he put up 5 catches for over 70 yards and a touchdown.  Shephard actually shined during training camp so this doesn’t come as a surprise for people who follow the Bucs closely.  Shephard has a nice match up against the Raiders at home this week.

Detroit Lions DST, 9% Owned – The Lions have actually put up at least 10 points 3 times so far this season.  They have a nice matchup against Brock Osweiler who has been awful in every sense of the word and a very banged up Lamar MillerDeAndre Hopkins seems frustrated and on the verge of losing it.  The stars are lining up for the Lions to have a nice week for you to keep pace in this roster spot.

Dallas Cowboys DST, 8% Owned – The Cowboys were able to put up 18 points against the Packers before the bye with 4 turnovers and a sack.  Guess what team is coming off of a 4 turnover game? The Eagles.  Wentz only has registered one touchdown in the past 2 weeks so it looks like he is coming back to Earth.

Jacksonville Jaguars DST, 3% Owned – Thursday night games have been sloppy and weird.  I don’t see a lot of scoring happening in this game and I see some dumb turnovers happening.  I would only play this option if the two streamers above are not available.

    I see the Titans D highly ranked all over the place do you disagree ? I just picked up the Titans D to stream this week but Cowboys and Lions are available would you rather roll with one of those ? TY

      @Brian: I really like the Titan’s D/st the most but they are 56% owned which is past my cutoff.

    Asiata or John Brown for flex in PPR this week?

    Howdy man!

    .5 ppr

    An owner in my league lost CJ Anderson. His RBs are bell,Crowell, Rashad Jennings, CJA, Doug Martin
    His WRs (lost decker) he has Marvin Jones, golden Tate, Enunwa, Mike Wallace,Meredith, davante adams

    My team
    My RBs David Johnson, Melvin Gordon, Howard, Charles, Henry, andre Ellington &a James Starks

    My WRs are Hopkins, Hilton, sanders, fuller, Shepard, Hogan, Corey Coleman, moncrief & Sammy Watkins

    Would you offer my Gordon + moncrief or sanders for bell? Or is that not enough?

    Or try a minor deal to aquire Crowell? Who would you offer for the crow?

    Or just stand pat?

    In a separate deal w/ another owner I’m looking to aquire his Booker. Would you offer moncrief straight up for Booker? Too much ? Not enough? Or I was thinking a package of either Fuller + Charles or Howard for Booker? Or Shepard instead of fuller?

    • Unbreakable MB

      Unbreakable MB says:

      @Papa Gino: he won’t sell bell if he lost CJ anderson, you can always try and I think that trade would be fair. If you are going after Crowell I would see if he’d do it for Charles and shephard.

      Yes I would do both of those trades for booker. He looks GOOD.

      • Papa Gino says:

        @Unbreakable MB:

        Thing is two weeks ago I did a trade with him I sent him Meredith for his Charles lol

        • Unbreakable MB

          Unbreakable MB says:
          (link)

          @Papa Gino: yeah I would probably stand pat, I like your roster

        • Papa Gino says:

          @Papa Gino:

          Thanks for the insight!

          If I’m unable to get deals done, I’d need a RB for my RB2 next week. I’ll have DJ & howard on byes & I don’t really trust Charles yet & Henry hasn’t been doing much

          For next week if drop my james Starks for either Dwayne Washington (week 9 at Minnesota), bibbs (week 9 at Oakland), Knile Davis (week 9 vs colts)

            @Papa Gino: you’re welcome, I’d watch Bibbs and Davis closely

              (link)

              @Unbreakable MB:

              lol go figure I say Henry hasn’t been much- he goes out & has a solid fantasy night

                @Papa Gino: this game we play is dumb

  4. Arrabers Greg says:

    Consider the Bears D/ST similar situation to Lions and ‘Boys?

    • Unbreakable MB

      Unbreakable MB says:
      (link)

      @Arrabers Greg: yes I suppose, any defense can get torched but all have good matchups

  5. Slimbo says:

    what do i do with Meredith in my dynasty? is he droppable or should i stand pat? Shepard and detroit d are available

    would it be silly to cut buffalo defense for detroit and meredith for shepard?

    • Unbreakable MB

      Unbreakable MB says:
      (link)

      @Slimbo: I would rather have Shepard. Buffalo will get torched this week but I would prefer not to drop them and take my chances unless you need a W

  6. Chisoxx_22 says:

    Would ya trade edelman for j. Reed? Or moncrief for eifert?

    • Unbreakable MB

      Unbreakable MB says:
      (link)

      @Chisoxx_22: not messing with Jordan Reed, I would trade moncrief for Eifert.

  7. Brian says:

    My current rbs are Ware, Miller, Howard and Booker. I got an offer that would give me Hopkins for Booker. I feel like I don’t have the depth at the position to make this deal plus it could be a risk taking Hopkins with Oswieler at the helm. Wold you take this risk ?

    • Unbreakable MB

      Unbreakable MB says:
      (link)

      @Brian: yes I would personally do it but I’m a Hopkins “Stan”. (I’m a big fan if you don’t get the Eminem reference). It would not be smart to do if you are deep at WR, though

      • Brian says:
        (link)

        @Unbreakable MB:
        My wr are DT, AJ Green and Colman as my top 3 wr I can start 2 of either and 1 flex which can be wr or rb.

        • Unbreakable MB

          Unbreakable MB says:
          (link)

          @Brian: do it, I think Hopkins is going to go off soon

  8. Okteds says:
    (link)

    I’ve got two offers on the table, both are pretty sweet, I’m just not sure which one I want….

    I receive Mike Evans,

    I give up either Ajayi or Stewart and Michael.

    Should I cash in Ajayi’s hot start? Or should I hold on to him and sell off all my depth ( I still have Gore as well).

    • Unbreakable MB

      Unbreakable MB says:
      (link)

      @Okteds: yes sell Ajayi while you can!!!

  9. T-bone says:
    (link)

    Jack Doyle or Allen hurns in my rcl flex?

    • T-bone says:
      (link)

      @T-bone: or Jamison crowder?

      • Unbreakable MB

        Unbreakable MB says:
        (link)

        @T-bone: I forget who Washington plays, but probably Crowder for me. If not Doyle

    I’m looking to add some lottery ticket RBs to my bench in a 12-team 0.5 ppr league. It’s obviously a lot of guesswork, but how would you rank these guys based on their odds of vaulting into the top-24 RB range? Thanks!

    Derrick Henry
    Dwayne Washington
    Jeremy Langford
    Kenneth Dixon
    Knile Davis

    • Unbreakable MB

      Unbreakable MB says:
      (link)

      @friar: 1. Langford – could get his job back
      2. Derrick Henry- in case of injury
      3. Knile Davis- hey, it could happen.

      No interest in Dwayne or dixon

  11. Nightpandas says:
    (link)

    Worth giving up a late round pick and Yeldon for Powell? 12 team .5 ppr, only a keep 3 so neither of these guys would be considered…looking for stronger rb depth

    • Unbreakable MB

      Unbreakable MB says:
      (link)

      @Nightpandas: despite Yeldon still being blah, I’d rather still have him than Powell

  12. Chisoxx_22 says:
    (link)

    3 wr league. He offered his d. Johnson for jordy and ware. My depth at wr without jordy is Hilton, Beasley, m. Floyd, boldin and Royal, but I would have Zeke, d. Johnson and Booker at rb /flex

    • Chisoxx_22 says:
      (link)

      @Chisoxx_22:
      I’m 6-1 so it doesn’t really matter but these RBS are putting in work this year

      • Unbreakable MB

        Unbreakable MB says:
        (link)

        @Chisoxx_22: definitely do it, never turn down David Johnson

  13. Ciwa says:

    Mccown over Fitzmagic this week? And ROS?

    Thanks

    • Unbreakable MB

      Unbreakable MB says:

      @Ciwa: I’d play Fitzpatrick this week. Probably rest of season too.

      • Aubrey Plaza's Pillow says:
        (link)

        @Unbreakable MB: only from job security i would think, i’d rather have mccown for sure if we had reason to believe he’d play ahead of chainsaw kessler when he’s healthy.

    I’m here with another request for trade help por favor. I have solid RB depth after a few trades and I’ve been offered to trade away Brees, Gore and Gates (who I just got on FA today, and Henry will play) for Luck and Olsen. No brainer, right? Am I missing something?

    • Unbreakable MB

      Unbreakable MB says:

      @Johnny Hammershanks: you’re not missing anything. Do it before it gets pulled!

    Was just offered Kelvin Benjamin & Martavis Bryant for Hopkins in a dynasty.

    Osweiler is worrying me and I’d like your opinion seeing how you’re high on Hop.

    Thanks man

    • Unbreakable MB

      Unbreakable MB says:

      @Dan: I love Hopkins and think he will have a big 2nd half. Are you competing? If not those are 2 solid WRs for next year. I would consider it if you’re out of the playoff race

      • Dan says:
        (link)

        @Unbreakable MB:
        I am most definitely out of it this year which is why I’m shopping Nuk. Think I may pull the trigger. Love KB & MB’s size along with their QBs. Hopkins looks more talented but Osweiler is just horrendous. Think I’ll have to go situation over talent here unfortunately.

        • Unbreakable MB

          Unbreakable MB says:

          @Dan: probably a good call then.
