A quick recap of week 4: it turns outs Tua did have a concussion, Dameon Pierce is who we thought he was, and Javonte Williams’ knee ligament is broken like the heart of my fantasy football team. But my team of genius chimps are still healthy and they’ve put together another week of the most accurate 2022 weekly fantasy football rankings*. If you’re looking for another (more intelligent) viewpoint, be sure to subscribe to Razzball’s 2022 fantasy football tools to see Rudy’s comprehensive weekly projections that weren’t compiled by a team of chimps (as far as I know). Anyway, here’s the weekly rankings for 2022 fantasy football, week 5:
*most accurate 2022 fantasy football rankings curated by a team of chimps
PPR for ROS not this week. Alec Pierce, Sky Moore or Jameson Williams?
Jameson Williams but it’s a crap shoot
12 teamer, h2h, 1-3 start after winning it last year. So lotsa work to do.
I Just traded away Najee and Khalial for Kupp. This leaves me with the squad below and a backfill selection from the WW:
Saquon, Zeke (or Dillon)
Bench: Dillon, Doubs, Gage,Schultz, Noah Brown
WW: MVS, Algeier, Boone, Latavius, Pickens, Rondale, Mattison
1. Who would your top selection off the wire given the team?
2. I figure Gage is a drop now. Replacement?
3. Is there a sleeper RB you would stash for down the road or ??
4. Thoughts on Kupp trade?
Never mind. Our league’s WW claims deadline is midnight each Wednesday.
Sorry Draft Dodgers, crazy day here
No problem. Appreciate what you do. Just did not want you to use brain cells on a moot set of questions. I missed on Algeier but got Pickens. New squad below, new questions:
IR: Jameson Will
Bench: Zeke, Schultz (in case Pitts is really Pitts), Pickens, Doubs, Boone, N Brown
1. Mattison and Njoke become available tonight at midnight. Add either/both? Who is the drop if so?
2. Would you play Zeke as flex this week over either Godwin or Cooks?
1 – I’d lose Brown for Mattison
2 – Zeke over Godwin if it’s standard, otherwise stand pat
I’d stand pat
Thoughts on Miles Sanders moving forward? He is my running back 3 at this point behind Henry and Barkley. Is his performance from last week something to use to go after Mixon? My league is 10 team .5 ppr with two flex.
I like Sanders as a solid RB2 but if you can package him with another good piece and land Mixon then I would definitely do that
Hey DT thanks for the weekly rankings!
Crazy to think I’m gonna start D.Pierce over J.Taylor this week. Do you advise that even if Taylor is a go against a good Denver defense?
According to your rankings (0.5ppr) I’m starting Olave, Pittman, DK over C.Samuel, B.Cooks, and Amon-Ra St.Brown. Do you agree?
I’m sure you’ve seen by now that JT is out tonight.
If Amon-Ra plays then I’ll have them all really close. I think you have to play Pittman tonight to be safe though. You can flip a coin between Olave/DK/Amon-Ra. Lean Olave and DK though.
Pondering a trade given a 0-4 start in a PPR league.
I give: Jonathan Taylor & Garrett Wilson
I get: Khalil Herbert, Christian Kirk, & George Pickens
Rest of my team:
QB: Rodgers (Prescott IR)
RB: Taylor, Pollard, Mostert, Stevenson, Hunt, Ja. Williams (DET), James Cook (potential low cost keeper)
WR: Wilson, Gabe Davis, Hopkins (suspended)
TE: Higbee, Kittle
Should I be asking for more in return? Trade Analyzer has it pretty even.
I’m ok with dealing JT at 0-4, but yeah I’d want to get more in return.
Great work as always DT. 12 Team, PPR – ROS would you drop either Ettiene or Pollard for (top 3): Jamal Williams, Pacheco, Edmonds, Rachaad White, or Hines? I also own RB’s Taylor and A. Jones. thanks man!
I’d lose Pollard for Williams but I do have them valued fairly close ROS fwiw.
Hey! Thanks for the weekly rankings!
Poor Javonte… I drafted him thinking he would likely be my keeper for next year now im not sure if I should hold (we dont have an IR spot) or drop for one of Pacheco, Allgeire or Rashaad white? Half PPR superflex
I’d lose him for Allgeier
Donkey Teeth! I hope you are doing well, staying healthy and winning in your league(s). I am in a ten team 0.5 ppr league with big play bonuses. Could you please help me figure out who to start for week 5? Thank you!
QB: J. Hurts
WR1: AJ Brown
***WR2: C. Kirk OR B. Aiyuk OR J. Waddle OR M. Gallup?
RB1: R. Penny OR N. Hines OR B. Hall OR J. Robinson?
RB2: R. Penny OR N. Hines OR B. Hall OR J. Robinson?
***TE: Z. Ertz OR G. Everett?
***F: B. Aiyuk OR Waddle C. Kirk OR M. Gallup OR B. Hall OR R. Penny OR N. Hines OR J. Robinson?
K: B. Maher
Waddle, Ertz, Kirk.
Thank you! What about my RBs? Thanks again.
Robinson for sure. Then it’s close but I’d go Hall. Wouldn’t blame you for trying Hines with JT out, the ceiling is high but the floor is also very low.
Full ppr (10 team) , currently 3-1 on the young season. Seeing if you’d make any drastic changes, minor tweaks or anything at all or stand Pat?
Here’s my team
QB Russell Wilson
RB1 Dalvin cook
RB2 zeke Elliot
WR1 Justin Jefferson
WR2 davante adams
Flex Dameon Pierce
Kicker I stream: koo
Bench: Gabe Davis, Darrel Henderson, Tony pollard, mattison, Gallup, chase Edmonds, Mostert, Doubs, Pickens
Any of these trades? Do they help me ROS?
1.) deal my Gabe Davis to get Garrett Wilson?
2.) deal my Gabe Davis to get Kittle?
3.) deal my Gabe Davis to get Rashad Penny?
4.) deal my Gabe Davis to get Devin singletary?
5.) deal Darrel Henderson to get Kareem hunt ?
6.) deal my Gabe Davis + Darrel Henderson + Njoku to get dobbins + Kittle ?
7.) deal my Gallup + Henderson + Njoku for Kittle + dobbins?
8.) deal zeke for kamara
9.) deal Gabe Davis + Darrel Henderson to Akers owner for rhamondre Stevenson?
10.) deal my zeke Elliot + Gabe Davis for mixon
11.) deal my Sutton for mixon
Lol sorry for so much to read I just didn’t know if should tweak
I’d look to move Dalvin and/or Zeke.
If you can get them accepted then I’d do #2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11.
I like 11, 10, 8 most, in that order.
Yo DT! I’m in an RB pinch and I’m considering a few trades.
League: 12 Team 0.5PPR Redraft league, auction.
RB: Jonathan Taylor
RB: Antonio Gibson
WR: Cooper Kupp
WR: Justin Jefferson
TE: Gerald Everett
Flex: Diontae Johnson
Flex: Hunter Renfrow
Bench: Brian Johnson, Deandre Hopkins, Latavius Murray, Jaylen Warren, Tyler Conklin.
As you can see, I’m about to be stuck with Antonio Gibson and JD McKissic as my starting RBs and my RB depth overall is quite poor.
Trades to consider
1) My Justin Jefferson for Breece Hall and Tee Higgins
2) My Justin Jefferson and JT for Chubb + Jamar Chase
Do you agree that I should probably trade out one of my top WRs to grab some RB depth?
Yeah I agree. I’d do #2 in a heartbeat. I don’t like #1.
Lol #2 actually got done, had some sellers remorse until I saw your comment. I love JT but that Colts offense is just terrible and I feel like Chase is due for some positive regression
Thanks for your help, always appreciate it!
Yeah all of that, plus the JT injury
You may not see this since you wrote this article a while ago but I have an interesting trade in the works.
Give: Jamaar Chase, D. Hopkins, Brian robinson jr, and rachaad white
Receive: Waddle, Ceedee Lamb, and Fournette
I should do it right? Or is it not as obvious?
Thanks Donkey you rock!
.5 PPR flex
Huntley, Alec Pierce or Marvin Jones?
Thanks Smashmouth! These are rough options! I guess Huntley.
Own Logan Thomas, jeez……drop Engram and grab Kmet for a stash?
Think I’d just hold
Hi! Should I drop pollard for Rashaad White? I zeke as well.
Hi! I’d keep Pollard.
I have some tough decisions because I have alot of players similar in value . I’m 0-4 . Standard league with a 10 point bonus added if a player reaches 100 rushing yards ,100 receiving yards or 300 passing .
Qb- going with Wilson over Stafford
Wr 1 – Aj Brown
Rb1- I assume Kamara if active
Rb 2 –
I have Kamarq, Najee Harris , Jeff Wilson, Olave, Godwin , Dobbins , Aj Dillon , Curtis Samuel , Gabe Davis , A-Rob , Tony Pollard , and Mostert to choose from . I’m almost considering benching Najee Harris due to all the options and the tough matchup and not knowing what the Steeler offense is gonna look like but not sure.
I also need to drop one of these players to activate Kamara if he plays . I just picked up Tua and added to IR . Would you say Stafford is the drop. Don’t think I’m ready to drop a Rob just yet. Thank you for your opinion
Olave, Najee, Dillon, Kamara (if he plays), Wilson. Agree with Stafford being the drop.
Good mornin’ DT…back with my first quandary of the season.
On a team that lost Javonte, I still have Cook, Dobbins, Dillon, Mostert, and the Gibson active/Robinson stashed set. Akers, Edmonds, Walker and Rachaad White are available for free. I’m obviously keeping Cook, Dobbins and Dillon, but I’d like to hold 2 more for depth.
Thoughts on staying as-is and see what happens in WAS or making a change?
Mornin! I think I’d swap Robinson out for Akers.
Thanks, man…I’d have to drop the Gibson-Robinson set (Robinson is stashed on IR) to have room for that, but I assume it’s the same idea??
Oh no, I’d keep Gibson
Would you rather stash Gus Edwards or Racchard White?
Coin flip, White
DT, great stuff, do you like this starting lineup as is?
10 team/0.5 PPR
RBs Sanders, Jones WRs Hollywood, Williams, FLEX RB B Hall, WR London
Bench options to sub are:
RBs R White, Gibson, Stevenson, Walker III
WRs G Wilson and Dionte
Thanks in advance,
Yep I’d stick with that lineup
My team has performed poorly yet I am only 2-3 in my 12 teamer, h2h, .5 PPR league. Could be worse. Here is the squad and WW options for this week.
Bench: Cooks (wr, bye), Mattison, Doubs, Boone, R White
WW: Hurst, Eno, Rondale, Engram, Pierce (wr), Duvernay, Cook, Jameson
Add Dillon please (r take him behind the barn)
