Trust or Bust is my brand new Fantasy Football segment. It is designed to give advice on who to play and who to keep on your bench for this week’s slate of games. This is a general piece of advice and it is not a definite figure. Everybody’s league and team is different and must be treated as such. Sometimes a ‘bust’ must be played because you have no other choice, or maybe you have a hunch. My best advice is to trust your gut. If there are any names not mentioned here, please contact me at @Cnic__ on twitter, I will be happy to give you personal, one-on-one advice as i do for many others. Also, if you have questions or disagreements about my placement of players unto either label, use the same method to contact me. I am human, most of the time, so I may have forgotten players; let me know if I have as well!
Russell Wilson – The Colts can’t defend the pass.
Tom Brady – He’s Tom Brady.
Drew Brees – Miami is 15th against fantasy QBs and the Dolphins have a questionable secondary.
Tyrod Taylor – He’s my sleeper this week at QB. Atlanta is very lax against opposing QBs
Marcus Mariota – The Texans are 25th against opposing QBs.
Trevor Siemian – Great supporting cast and the Raiders’ secondary is very shoddy.
Ezekiel Elliot – He’s obvious but his matchup is heavenly. Rams are 31st against opposing RBs.
Leonard Fournette – Great matchup against the Jets and the volume is there.
Dalvin Cook – Favorable matchup and the volume is there.
Joe Mixon – His coming out game, and against the Browns.
Odell Beckham Jr. – Another obvious one, but Beckham should go off against TB.
Adam Thielen – Diggs is going to have a tough time with Slay shadowing him, Thielen should absord some targets.
Larry Fitzgerald – A good matchup and gets a ton of targets.
DeVante Parker – The Saints secondary is very bad, and Parker is the best fantasy receiver in Miami. The deep ball is his friend.
Marquise Lee – The most targeted of the Jaguar receivers and it seems time for a touchdown. This is a gut call.
Tyrell Williams – Philadelphia has been generous to opposing WRs, I think Williams has a really good day.
Travis Kelce – Has a good matchup and the Chiefs will need him in a shootout.
Delanie Walker – Mariota’s favorite target and he has a good matchup.
Charles Clay – Doesn’t have the best matchup but he is Tyrod Taylor’s only target.
Hunter Henry – He’s probably on the waiver wire, but this is the game Henry comes out of his fantasy shell.
Ben Roethlisberger – Big Ben isn’t good on the road, or in Baltimore. His matchup is also unfavorable.
Dak Prescott – Not a good matchup and I think the Cowboys run the ball a ton.
Derek Carr – Awful matchup, avoid.
Mark Ingram – I don’t like the matchup, or any Saints running back.
Isaiah Crowell – Not a great matchup and I don’t forsee Crowell getting a ton of volume.
Ameer Abdullah/Theo Riddick – An awful matchup and I don’t like any Lions running back.
Stefon Diggs – Diggs will be shadowed by Darius Slay, should be a tough matchup.
Marvin Jones – Should be shadowed by Xavier Rhodes, spells bad for fantasy numbers.
Amari Cooper/Michael Crabtree – Awful matchups and they haven’t been great anyhow.
Kyle Rudolph – Rudolph hasn’t been Case Keenum’s buddy. A bad matchup complicates his start.
Coby Fleener – This is a gut call, but I think the return of Willie Snead will take targets away from Fleener.
Note: There aren’t many good tight ends. Choose wisely.
