If you didn’t watch the game last night and just peak at the final score, you would think that there was plenty of fantasy goodness that went on last night. Nothing is more frustrating than needing fantasy points on MNF and the offensive game play being sub-par, especially when the over hits. But also, nothing makes you feel as alive going into Monday night up 5 points with Chris Carson left and your opponent has Jimmy Garappollo and somehow, you pull it off without a sweat to get to 9-1. Rarely is luck on my side, but it seems to be in my big auction league this season.

What the hell kind of kick was that in overtime by the way? While the golden rule is to never leave the game in the hands of your kicker or the referees, the kicker should at least put the kick close enough to the uprights for the viewer to squint and say, “ehhhhhhhh”. 

The 49ers haven’t looked like the world-beaters that we’ve become accustomed in 2019 for a couple of weeks. While Seattle heads into their bye, the 49ers will look to right the ship at home against the Cardinals next week. Here’s what I saw from a fantasy perspective on Monday night.

Performance Checks

– In fantasy football, volume is definitely king. Chris Carson carried the ball 25 times for 89 yards and a touchdown. He also caught 3 passes for 12 yards. 3.6 yards per carry isn’t impressive, but Carson made the plays when the Seahawks needed them. Unsurprisingly, Carson has been one of the biggest draft day values in 2019 fantasy football.

Russell Wilson had an MVP outing without lighting up the stat sheet. He avoided pressure in the 2nd half and overtime, made some incredible throws, and added 53 yards on the ground. His only blemish was a head-scratching overtime interception the the Seahawks eventually got away with. 

– Jimmy Garappollo looks good one week and then not so good the next. This was one of those games where he looked like he didn’t have a clue what he was doing out there. I expect next week to be a bounce back week for Jimmy GQ against the Cardinals.

Tyler Lockett could miss anywhere from two weeks to the rest of the season with the leg injury that he sustained last night. This would be a big blow to the Seahawks’ passing game, but it could provide an opportunity for Josh Gordon to slide in and stand out. 

Emmanuel Sanders also left this one early with a rib injury. The MRI was inconclusive so I guess there is no clear timetable for his return.

Deebo Samuel and DK Metcalf showed out for the rookie class last night. Deebo caught 8 out of his 11 targets for 100 yards and DK caught 6 of his 10 targets for 70 yards. Each WR led their team in receiving yards. 

Jacob Hollister might be a thing at the TE position for the Seahawks. Russell targeted him 10 times for 8 catches, 68 yards, and a touchdown. 

– The 49ers backfield was a pretty even touch split between Coleman, Breida, and Mostert. Coleman ended up leading the backfield in receiving catching 4 balls for 32 yards. Breida’s injury could lead to more touches going forward for Mostert, so it will be important to keep an eye on Breida’s status in the coming days.

    MB,
    What’s the trade value of a guy like David Johnson right now? I’m considering moving on from him. It is a dynasty so I figure he holds a little more value than in redraft right now. I’d prefer to move him for another RB. Any thoughts?

      Beauty will be in the eye of the beholder. Maybe David Montgomery? Maybe..

      • Allan says:
        (link)

        Probably just hold on to him then. Thanks though. You think he bounces back, Drake beats him out, or they turn into a frustrating rbbc where no one knows who’s getting the points week to week?

          Dude he looked so bad last week. He looks washed, at least for this year

          • Allan says:
            (link)

            I agree. And he’s looked that way to me all year healthy or not healthy. His contribution in the passing game has helped disguise how bad he’s been running the ball. I’m thinking about just sending some offers out hoping someone bites on his name value. Maybe for Henry or someone around that level.

              i remember him looking ok before the back thing sprung up, but they’ve continued to play him through that (or decoy him) for a while now.

    16 team PPR dynasty with infinite IR slots (can be used for bye week guys too but they have to come off right after their bye unless they have a flag (fantrax)). need at least 7 ARI players at all times (IR counts)
    QB (max from 2 real life teams if active): trubisky
    RB (2): DJ (ARI 1), drake (A2), hyde, d-will (the good one, FINALLY got his job back), mckissic
    WR (3): kirk (ARI 3), t-will, m-will, mclaurin, k.johnson (ARI 4), evans
    TE (1): ertz, goedert
    1 flex
    IR: gallman, aj brown, tannehill, breida, ellison, h.butler (A5)
    DL (2): campbell, c.jones (A6), d.ford (LB)
    LB (2): LVE, j.hicks, cunningham, warner (will drop warner if need be, needed fill in from byes)
    DB (2): baker, rapp
    IR: blair (had massively moved up the IDP rankings, then got no points in week 10, i’ll look into snap counts when they come out), kirkpatrick, m.nicholson
    K (1): folk, badgley (dropping one of these shortly)
    DEF (1): MIN

    i had traded d.hamilton WR DEN to DEN owner back in preseason when i was going to have to drop him anyway for a 3rd rounder. we do a slow message board preseason draft and most all named rookies go in rounds 1-3, most teams are full by then for the clean up online portion (but anybody with a flag at that time doesn’t count against active maxes). i have the 14th waiver. i’m the 5th best team with tied for the 2nd best record, DJ and my QB’s are holding me from having a top 2 score (i even had that a few weeks ago). i dropped haskins for tannehill lately and played him over trubisky lately. the guy with foles is having to drop foles or trade him in a few days, he has winston and wentz already and can’t legally have all 3 active but foles has no flag and just came off his bye. a 2nd fair here for foles and later drop which of trubisky/tannehill (probably tannehill just since trubisky long term can get better again).

      Yep, I’d grab Foles, but I’d actually drop Trubisky instead. I don’t think Nagy is a fan and I’m not convinced that he can actually get better

      • Super Terrific Carpal Tunnel Virusy Box vs Mail Robot (who wins?) says:
        (link)

        read some footballguys stuff about the reason why trubisky sucks this year and wasn’t awful last year is that nagy doesn’t understand the kind of offense that trubisky can successfully run, last year they had the power running element in howard, then just threw him away so nagy could input his spread style deal, which trubisky simply isn’t able to pull off.

          Also the defense isn’t getting the turnovers that it did last year. No more short fields

    12 teamer PPR redraft. traded henry for dak attack (lost ben to start year). record finally catching up with points and i’m near playoff lock as a top 2 scoring team now. but in case lockett is out longer than a week with a blood thing from a deep bruise i could trade m.ryan for sanders (hurt) or chark (that owner asked me this on sunday before game times). ryan was very stupidly dropped in this money league by a dumbshit when he was hurt for one total week. now that guy is streaming carr and the like. return yardage worth half of scrimmage so lockett didn’t even have that bad of a week 10.
    QB (1) dak, ryan
    RB (2) AAron, jacobs, RJ2, j-will, guice
    WR (2): lockett (might not be able to IR him this week as he’s on bye and won’t get the “out” tag), kupp, j.brown, sutton, adams
    TE (1): hollister (THIS was nice that he played the late game so i could IR kittle and get value and still win without having to drop anybody useful)
    1 flex
    IR kittle

    so trade ryan for chark here (or sanders). dak’s ROS is probably worse than ryan’s

    dak: @ DET, @ NE (not playoffs yet though), vs BUF, @ CHI, vs LAR, @ PHI
    ryan: @ CAR, vs TB, vs NO, vs CAR, @ SF, vs JAX

      Both of those playoff schedules are not fun, but I’d rather roll Dak out every week. I’d rather have Chark. Foles being back is encouraging for his stock.

      • Eli Man Penguin Boy says:
        (link)

        opp will still do chark for ryan, but he’s got more RB depth than WR depth. what about d-will for ryan? (he might want a RB (guice here likely)) back on that. if we’re to believe SEA’s coach lockett isn’t that messed up (albeit SEA coach has a top 5ish history of injury lies in the past)

    As a Kyler owner (Niners this week, bye the next) does it make sense to stash Stafford and hope the injury isn’t too bad or better to blow what little of my FAAB is left on Wentz?

    Thanks!

      Wentz seems safer

    10 team standard scoring. I’m sitting at 5-5 in 5th place and everyone is bunched together at 6-4, 5-5, 4-6.

    I’ve been holding onto the #1 waiver basically all season. Thoughts on using it for Slayton? Would also then put in a TE claim for Jared Cook

    Here’s my squad:
    QB – Jameis, Wentz
    RB – CMC, Carson, LeVeon, Singletary
    WR – OBJ, Woods, JBrown, Terry, Robby Anderson (dropping)
    TE – Engram, Howard (dropping)
    D – Steelers
    K – Lutz

    • southside dom says:

      Deebo Samuel and Brian Hill are also available

      MB says:

      Cook for Howard seems lateral. I’d grab Slayton for Robby

  7. Steve says:

    Waiver claim priority: Guice or one of the handcuffs like Pollard, Armstad ?

    MB,

    Heading into the playoffs soon and my weakest position is QB. I currently have Wentz and Goff. Am I crazy to drop Goff for Carr or Allen? If not, who do you prefer? Each QBs playoffs schedule (weeks 14-16):

    Goff vs SEA, @ DAL, @ SF
    Carr vs TEN, vs JAX, @LAC
    Allen @ATL, vs SEA, @ IND

  9. Chet says:

    MB, I’m not sure why my questions never get posted/answered (?). Shortened version: Do you think it’s nuts to drop Goff for Allen or Carr? If you are on board, which of the two do you prefer? Thanks.

    • MB

      MB says:

      They were pending approval for some reason. Anyways Carr>Goff

      • Chet says:

        Thanks! If I can’t get Carr, would you swap Goff for Allen?

    Am I crazy to want to drop Goff for Allen or Carr? If you don’t think so, which of the two do you prefer? Thanks.

    Could you please help me out this week? I am in a ten team .5 PPR league. We do have big play bonuses in my league. Can you help me figure out who to start? I really do appreciate it!

    QB- L. Jackson OR J. Goff?

    RB- D. Cook

    RB2- Fournette OR Chubb?

    WR1- Marvin Jones OR C. Kirk OR Fuller OR Ridley OR Stills?

    WR2-K. Stills OR C. Kirk OR Fuller OR Ridley OR Marvin Jones?

    Flex- Jamaal Williams OR N. Chubb OR M. Andrews OR Fuller OR Ridley OR C. Kirk OR Marvin Jones OR Stills OR Fournette?

    TE-Waller OR M. Andrews?

    K- Tucker

    D- New England or Baltimore?

  13. eballs says:

    Here’s the squad

    QB: Murray, Kyle Allen
    RB: Michel, Henry, Guice, Mattison, Penny, Lat Murray
    WR: OBJ, Adams, DJ Moore, Kirk, Gordon
    TE: Everett

    I will hopefully be getting Brian Hill after using my 1st priority waiver claim and dropping Penny for him. Also, I was just offered this trade:

    My

    OBJ
    Mattison
    Lat Murray

    For His

    Metcalf
    Auden Tate
    Shady

    He’s the Cook owner in our league. Nevertheless, would you accept this trade?
