Back in kindergarten I was a real ladies donkey. All the other little donkeys were worried about catching cooties, but not ole Donkey Teeth. Your boy was busy scheduling play dates with all the kindergarten hotties; there was little time to worry about contracting the cooties, in fact, Donkey Teeth wanted those cooties.

Fast forward a quarter century, and while it seems my prowess with the ladies may have peaked a little early, I’m still trying to catch all the cooties I can: Keke Coutee that is (proper pronunciation is cue-Tee, but cut me a little slack). Coutee, the fourth round rookie out of Texas Tech, set a modern day record with 11 catches in his debut this week. Will Fuller’s hamstrings are literally held together by black forest ham and some strings; if Fuller misses more time, Coutee could be in for some monster weeks. Anyway, here’s some more players to buy or sell this week in fantasy football:

 

BUY
  • Dalvin Cook – He disappointed in prime-time Thursday night, but he was coming off an injury on a short week and limited by a pitch count. Cook up an offer for Dalvin and see if his owner’s hungry.
  • T.J. Yeldon – Leo Fournette’s hamstrings are similar to Will Fuller’s hamstrings except the strings are paired with 4 week old Krakus ham. Don’t eat 4 week old Krakus ham, do buy TJ Yeldon.
  • Nick Chubb – Watching Nick’s highlights gives me major Chubb. If he ever gets the workload boost he deserves, I may need to contact a doctor due to prolonged penile engorgement.
  • Nyheim Hines – Bra-My and I highlighted Hines in our Rookie RB preview podcast. Hines 21 is a special sauce which should be applied immediately in all PPR leagues.
  • Ronald Jones – Bra-My and I also highlighted RoJo on our Rookie RB pod. I was fading Jones hard at that time since he’s a 190 pound RB with hands worse than Jim Abbott’s. Alas, Peyton Barber has failed to do anything with the opportunity; it’s time to take a flier on Ronald.
  • Taylor Gabriel – DA BEARS! Da Mitch finally woke up this week and Gabriel is quickly becoming one of his favorite targets. Expose yourself to Da Bears. Not like that! Put your pants back on and pick Gabriel up!
  • Taywan Taylor Rishard Matthews should’ve taken a page out of Vontae Davis’s playbook on how to quit a team. With Matthews and Delanie Walker now out of his way, the talented Taylor is the clear second in line for targets behind Corey Davis. And it turns out maybe the Titans aren’t quite as horrible as we thought.
  • Baker Mayfield – I’d eat this Baker’s cake any day, if you know what I mean ::wink, wink::, mmmmmm cake.
  • Blake Bortles – People continue to hate on Bortle Kombat and Blake continues to produce fresh fatalities against opposing fantasy teams.
  • Vance McDonald – V McD stiff-arms tacklers like Brett Kavanaugh stiff-arms questions about “Boofing”. Vance also likes beer… A LOT.
  • Cameron Brate – Jameis is on a mission to Make America Brate Again. OJ is banged up, and it’s no coincidence Brate immediately caught a touchdown once Jameis entered the fold.
  • Tyler Kroft – Tyler Lara Kroft has made a habit of raiding Tyler Eifert’s tomb. Whenever Eifert has gone down in the past, Kroft has been useful.
 
SELL
  • Patrick Mahomes – I know, I know, how could Donkey be recommending to sell ya holmes. Don’t get me wrong, he’s great, even better than I expected when I ranked him as the #11 fantasy QB preseason and was mocked by my co-host Bra-My. But if you can sell him for a top RB or WR talent then I’m doing it all day and twice on laundry day.
  • Cooper Kupp – Another dude that’s really good and I expect Coop to produce WR2 numbers moving forward even in standard leagues. I wouldn’t sell him for a DVD of his newly released adult film, Two Girls One Kupp, but if you can sell him as a WR1, or even high-end WR2 after his career game in prime-time this past Thursday night, then make the move.
  • Chris Hogan – Hogan is not a hero. Hogan is a cruel villain. Feel free to drop Hogan for the flavor of the week.
  • As always feel free to ask me any add/drop or trade questions in the comments. Starting this weekend I’ll be off the grid for a couple weeks on a vision quest seeking my inner Donkey, this segment will return October 23rd.

    Should I drop Jordy Nelson or Josh Gordon to pick up Doug Baldwin? 10 team redraft standard with 10 pt bonus at 100 yard

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      @russowl: I’d dump Jordy for Baldwin

  2. MagaMan says:

    Would you drop Carson, Aaron Jones or Cohen for Coutee or Hines in a PPR?

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      @MagaMan: I’d hold

  3. miles proudfoot says:

    12 team .5 PPR…

    Does Cobb or Cole need to be rostered? Would you drop either or both for Hines, Westbrook, Keke, Chubb or Jones II? It’s for a FLEX spot so positions don’t really matter.

    Thanks!

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      @miles proudfoot: I rank em Chubb, Hines, Keke, Cole

  4. tshank13 says:

    Is Jamaal Williams officially droppable, or are you still holding?

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      @tshank13: Who are your options?

      • tshank13 says:
        (link)

        @Donkey Teeth: Like say for Keke. I’ve got fuller, and debating whether I need to have an insurance policy for at least this week. I’ve got drake, kamara and Michel as my other backs. I also need to add an idp. I’ve got Sean lee out and trevathan on bye. I’ve got Hopkins and juju in my wr slots. Fuller in flex and Geronimo and crowder on my bench. I could probably drop seals jones my back up TE(Rudolph starting) if necessary. But it just seems like jones is the guy in GB.

        • Donkey Teeth

          Donkey Teeth says:
          (link)

          @tshank13: Yep, I’m fine with swapping him for Keke in that situation

  5. Prog_Nation says:

    I’ve offered Cook for McCaffrey in a trade. Should I cancel. Think McCafe has more upside. Thanks.

  6. Prog_Nation says:

    Donkey – I had just offered De Cook in a trade for McCafe from Carolina. Think the Panther has a little more upside than Cook in a non-PPR league. Thoughts? Should I cancel the trade before the other team accepts? Thanks.

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:

      @Prog_Nation: I’d rather have Mccaffrey, you might need to throw another small piece in though

    Good evening man! Wow can’t believe week 5 is already here seems like yesterday it was draft night!!

    .5 ppr league here’s my team

    RBs: DJ, Melvin Gordon, Royce Freeman, Kerryon Johnson, brieda, ekeler, Ron Jones

    WRs Hilton, Keenan Allen, amari Cooper, Sterling Shepard, Doug Baldwin, Geronimo Allison, Tyler Boyd, kupp

    TE ebron

    QB case Keenan who was my stream week 4

    Based on my roster would you stand pat or explore trades? Sell high my kupp if I can get a WR1? If you would sell high on kupp who to target via trade?

    If I package Doug Baldwin + Royce Freeman what type of player should I look for in return? Mark Ingram? Or what about if I take Baldwin out & insert any of my other WRs?

    Waiver Q. Dropping Keenum, who should be my priority:
    – week 5 Stafford home vs packers (then week 6 bye)
    – week 5 carr @ chargers (then week 6 vs Seahawks)
    – week 5 Goff @ Seattle (week 6 @ Denver)
    – week 5 Bortles @ KC (then week 6 @ Dallas)

    **He has a bye but I love his matchup after the bye:
    Jameis Winston @ ATL week 6 next week**

    Next hold onto Geronimo or drop for one of: Keke Coutee, Taywan Taylor, Michael galllup?

    Thanks man!!

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      @Cosmo kramer: Team looks loaded. Is it a 10 teamer?
      I’d be fine standing pat but it never hurts to explore offers.

      For Kupp I’d be looking to package him for an upgrade, kinda like the Baldwin idea you have. Straight up I’d take an Emanuel Sanders, Brandin Cooks, Jarvis Landry type for him though or a solid RB2.

      Ingram for Baldwin and Royce sounds like a decent deal. I might try for AP, Lynch, Sony Michel or Dalvin Cook first.

      Goff looks like a stud, then Stafford, then Bortles for me.

      Hold Geronimo over them.

    14 team PPR. super injured spot, but had i played jeffery over goodwin (almost did too, rankings said not to) would’ve won last week. also after 2 keepers in this league (goodwin last rounder, AB 4th) went mixon/mckinnon (about 12 hours before injury too) in 1st 2 rounds. then overspent budget to get morris.
    QB luck
    RB (2) crowell, morris, ivory, mixon, montgomery (cobb out is great for him though)
    WR (3) AB, callaway, baldwin, marshall (drop time), a.wilson, jeffery
    TE(1) vance
    1 flex
    IR (2) burkhead, doyle (got lucky, input the waivers before he might’ve been ruled on questionable)
    these look about right, all dropping marshall
    m.davis (6 bucks, have 36 left on season)
    gabriel (5)
    r.smith (3)

    • Stupid Sexy Glanders says:
      (link)

      @Stupid Sexy Glanders: and goodwin at WR. so even when i don’t have injuries i have injuries that effect me.

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      @Stupid Sexy Glanders: I might consider bumping Gabriel a couple more bucks in a 14 team PPR but otherwise looks good

      • Stupid Sexy Glanders says:
        (link)

        @Donkey Teeth: in a vacuum that sounds right, but i’m WAY stronger (i’m above average for WR in a 14 here with these, now with baldwin/jeffery healthy) in WR than RB (this was true BEFORE the mixon/burkhead injuries and morris not being used fully as starter), i have improved my WR too with callaway added 2 or whatever weeks ago. going into season (just before mckinnon injury) it wasn’t bad but not a strength either with
        mckinnon/mixon/burkhead/montogomery/crowell but every little bad thing that almost could’ve has happened to these guys, now with probably too little money to be the lead man on WR guys. this roster is finally very likely to first time ever get worse than 3rd, but will finally have a good draft pick (of course i try so hard it won’t be a GREAT draft slot)

  9. Barker says:
    (link)

    10 team 1/2 ppr

    I give devonta freeman
    I get mccoy and jordan reed
    Dropping eifert

    My other RBs david johnson peterson derrick henry
    My te eiferts corpse

    Team is 0-4
    Not much on wire for TE and competing with other owners for scraps with number 10 waiver spot
    Basically would be hoping for a mccoy trade

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      @Barker: I wouldn’t do that deal.

      Who are the best TEs available? Does everyone own two or something?

      • Barker says:
        (link)

        @Donkey Teeth:
        TE on wire ben watson (old) macdonald (had a farm) doyle brate (but does not help this week) hooper? (Basketball started already?) Jesse james

        Another option is
        I give john brown
        I get njoku

        My wr corey davis k allen baldwin ridley desean jackson gordon

        • Donkey Teeth

          Donkey Teeth says:
          (link)

          @Barker: I’d prob just grab Vance McD for this week and then look at upgrading to Doyle or Brate next week.

          • Stupid Sexy Glanders says:
            (link)

            @Donkey Teeth: yeah doyle/vance/brate (while oj is out anyway) are fine options in a 12 for sure probably ok in a 10 to not lose a good player for. esp here as reed’s stats really aren’t better than doyle (when he played), vance, brate (when oj is out)

  10. tshank13 says:
    (link)

    12 team ppr 2 player keeper

    I get Chris Thompson and cousins
    I give sanders and Vance McDonald

    My team:
    Flacco
    Sony
    Mixon
    Brown
    Odell
    Kittle
    Sanders(flex)

    Bench:
    Lindsay
    Drake
    Kerryon
    DIon Lewis
    Jamaal Williams
    Geronimo
    McDonald
    Garapollo(ir)

    Waiver claims in for Dede or Keke for Williams

    There’s no TE’s on the wire (uzomah, Vannet, Ellison best available via espn). He’s got Doyle and Jonnu. I’ve got a ton of RBs with tons of potential, but not enough evidence to really trust yet, and no WR depth to feel ok to lose sanders. Thoughts?

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      @tshank13: Yea I don’t think you need that deal, Lindsay, Kerryon, dion and drake is nice RB depth already. Maybe see if you can swing a smaller deal for just Cousins?

      • tshank13 says:
        (link)

        @Donkey Teeth: That’s how I was leaning, but I was second guessing. Thanks for the clarity man!

  11. Tony says:
    (link)

    I have bakerfield, would you drop him for Winston?

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      @Tony: Kind of a toss up to me. Gun to head I’ll take Baker…

  12. A Wesley Snipes Life says:
    (link)

    what no IR guys to tell us to sell, how else would we have any idea about dropping them? i mean i should hold garapololololol in redraft right? no. man i need to be told by somebody besides those silly news blurbs right on my team page.

    • A Wesley Snipes Life says:
      (link)

      @A Wesley Snipes Life: …. for if you’ve read one of the other writers around here, spends about half of that post’s “sells” being spent on IR players, imagining somehow that people that come all the way to this spot for news/advice would need one of you writers to tell us to drop IR guys (for redrafts)

        • A Wesley Snipes Life says:
          (link)

          @Donkey Teeth: then if you show up to point out it seems odd that somebody that spends enough time to read about fantasy in football blogs would need to be told this (as they’d somehow have to NOT read their own player blurbs on their own team pages yet still come looking for news/advice/info here) you get accused of talking down to the writer due to some sort of chromosomal discrimination, which is utterly hilarious, as the only thing i should be accused of there is informational superfluity discrimination. i see people wasting their time telling people to drop IR guys in redraft leagues as something to make fun of, for sure, but it wouldn’t matter who’s winning in X’s and Y’s.

          – that or maybe you guys have like a quota per week (so min amount “buys” and “sells”, and you have to base the buys/sells on ownership % or some such) and what’s easier shoddy writing than noticing, hey these 2 guys are out for the year but have high % might as well type them up. clearly i’m not ascribing any of this to you here. only reason this brought up here is noticing a buy/sell column that doesn’t have that superfluous inane stuff and realizing the last one (not by you) seen had that kind of stuff in it.

  13. Keith says:
    (link)

    Stuck in a tough situation with James Conner. Barring any trade for Bell to another NFL team, worth it to trade him and Tyler Boyd for David Johnson or hold on and ride the situation out?

    RBs
    Melvin Gordon
    Joe Mixon
    Matt Breida
    James Conner
    Buck Allen

    WRs
    AJ Green
    Golden Tate
    Marvin Jones
    Quincy Enuwa
    Tyler Boyd

    Thanks in advance

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      @Keith: Yes, I’d do that trade for DJ immediately

  14. JohnsonKupp says:
    (link)

    I have depth at WR and took your advice and traded Kupp along with Jeffery and Lockett(he has Wilson) for Antonio Brown (Who is not having the typical Bown season so far). My league is crying foul. Is this a ripoff trade that should be vetoed or is it just selling high and buying low?

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      @JohnsonKupp: It’s pretty lopsided IMO, but I’m in the camp that vetoes should be reserved for collusion only.

      Also, if the other team desperately needs the depth then its not that bad of a deal….

  15. Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:

    what’s best use of this roster spot (mack or hilton can be put into one IR slot)
    12 team half PPR.
    QB (1) RW3
    RB (2) mixon (yeah back again, this team actually did ok without him, only team i can say that about, and i own mixon in MANY leagues this year), gurley, michel, barber, RJ2
    WR (2) jeffery, landry, kupp, hilton, allison
    TE (1) rudolph
    1 flex
    IR (1) mack
    K bailey
    D (streamer) CAR (might keep them for a bit actually)
    options: RB: go back to mal brown (gurley HC), j.allen, morris (both these 2’s value would shoot up if injuries happen), penny
    WR: crowder, cole, kirk, TT (TEN),
    TE (backup): doyle, hurst, brate, watson, RSJ
    QB (backup): winston, mariota, bortles (actually bortles or mariota could be used over RW3 against LAR this week maybe). just seeing now at FP top 30 QB guys have bortles a good deal ahead of RW3 (i.e. he always does well when fournette is out, plus KC will still score at least SOME points here probably)

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      @Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo: I think using the spot on Bortles and starting him over Wilson this week is a good idea.
