Welcome back to the Razzball streamer article.  I have some work to do after week 1.  None of my plays had big days and a few were downright awful.  Maybe I dove a little deep, perhaps things didn’t fall my way, or maybe I, flat out, don’t know what I’m talking about.  Whatever the case may be, I’m going to try and be more useful to you this week.

I mentioned last week that I was going to add droppables to this article and we probably are a week or two away from that.  I don’t want to jump to conclusions after week 1.  If we were going to jump to conclusions after week 1, Adrian Peterson would be one of the worst running backs in the league and everyone would start Will Fuller over Dez Bryant.  Actually, I probably would start Will Fuller over Dez Bryant because of my pure disdain for Dez.  I never draft him so I don’t have to worry about that…

Joe Flacco, 24% owned – A man dies and goes to heaven.  This man meets God.  God says to the man, “I grant you one question about anything you ever wanted to know while you were on Earth.”  The man thinks for a split second before muttering, “Is Joe Flacco elite?”  God texts Satan, ‘Got another one for you’, obviously followed by a series of emojis.  We all know God’s emoji game would be flames.

This comes down to how awful the Browns defense is.  I wrote that you should stream them last week, my apologies.  Carson Wentz torched them last week to the tune of 278 yards and 2 touchdowns.  Joe Flacco played against a pretty bad defense last week as well, but not near the dumpster fire hell hole that the Browns are and probably will continue to be.  Anyways, Flacco should have a big day.  Flacco has 19 career touchdowns against the browns to just 7 interceptions including a 91.2 passer rating and 3 300 yard games.

Bilal Powell, 35% owned – This one is not as much of a sure thing as Flacco, but hear me out.  Matt Forte is an aging running back coming off of a good game in which he received a lot of touches.  The Jets are coming in to Buffalo on 4 days rest and its only week two, so why not even out the workload a little bit?  Powell carried the ball 4 times for 41 yards and caught 2 passes for 7 yards which is pretty good considering he only handled the ball 6 times.  Buffalo was middle of the pack last season against the rush, but they did end up giving up a not so stellar 4.4 yards per carry.  Throw in Rob Ryan and all of the other personnel issues and it’s going to be another sad day for Bill’s Mafia. If Powell can get something between 12-15 touches Thursday night, with a little luck, you could end up with a nice surprise.

Tyrell Williams, 31% owned – Tyrell Williams was able to turn in over 70 yards on his two catches Sunday versus the Chiefs.  Jacksonville’s personnel in the secondary, although better than last year, are still pretty new to playing together.  They held Rodgers to 199 yards last week, but they are playing a less vertical passing attack this week led by the almost always reliable Phillip Rivers.  Rivers throws the ball a lot and said something to the effect of Tyrell Williams needing to catch a lot of balls this season.

Virgil Green, 28% owned – The Broncos are certainly not facing the Panthers again this week and this is very good news.  The Colts let Matthew Stafford sit on their faces in week 1.  Stafford connected with his tight end, Eric Ebron for a touchdown and Virgil Green saw his fair share of targets last Thursday.  If this trend continues, I see good things happening against a wrecked defensive personnel.

Washington DST, 7% owned – Before you stream Washington, make sure that the Jet’s defense isn’t available.  They are 49% owned in Yahoo and are the surefire play of the week, but 49% ownership is a little too high for me.  I like to keep it under 40% in hopes of being realistic to as much of the audience as I can be.

Washington is playing against the Cowboys and Dak Prescott is certainly not running the high powered offense that Cowboy Nation swore he would.  Elliot was disappointing in his first NFL go round, but to my delight, the biggest disappointment was the play of Dez Bryant.  He will surely spend some of the day matched up with Josh Norman, and if I know anything about those two, Norman is going to get under Bryant’s skin.  Until I see otherwise, I am streaming against Dak Prescott.

    Would you ship a $6 devonta freeman for a $42 Rawls?

    Sketched by Freeman’s workload.

      admittedly, I’m not an auction value expert. But $42 seems expensive for Rawls. I was a Tevin Coleman guy all summer but 6$ seems like a good value. I share your workload concern with Freeman. But I can’t say that Christine Michael will totally be phased out of the offense either. I’d stick with Freeman going forward, if it were me

    Hey one more, I’m obviously panicking on freeman and I feel whole heartedly all owners should sell now if they can get “fair” value (some people considered him a first rounder…)

    You can keep these guys next year and that’s it:
    $6 freeman, $10 Stefon diggs for $70 Ezekiel Elliot, $10 victor Cruz..

    I don’t have tevin as the handcuff and despite fair offers for him the other owner won’t give him up, so I’m trying to abandon the Falcons rb all together.

    $10 dollars stephon Diggs. He is a baller and I think that’s really good value. I haven’t seen anything from Elliot that makes me happy.

    hey man!

    Before I ask my Q here’s my RBs & WRs

    RB1 David Johnson
    RB2 Hyde

    WR1 Hopkins
    WR2: Moncrief
    WR3: Sterling Shepard

    Flex: sharpe?

    Bench: Melvin Gordon, Derrick Henry, Shaun draughn, Chris Johnson.

    My Q # 1: would you deal my Hyde for Latavius Murray? Or stand pat with Hyde?

    Q #2 would you look to deal Melvin Gordon for Yeldon?

    Q # 3 thoughts on looking to aquire Josh Gordon? Who are on roster above would you offer this Josh Gordon owner also has Freeman, forte, jeffery, Maclin, Emmanuel sanders, c-Mike, Kamar Aiken

    Thanks!

      1. No, Latavious Murray doesn’t have near the talent that Carlos Hyde does in my opinion. If Hyde is healthy all year, watch out.

      2. Not at this moment, I’d wait to see how Chris Ivory is going to be used in the offense. If you’re going to try and sell high on Melvin is shoot a little higher than Yeldon

      3. I would actually try and target Josh Gordon with Melvin Gordon. I think you are pretty set at running back and we’ve all seen what Josh Gordon can do. This guy might be panicking because he has Devonta Freeman.
