Another week has come and gone and that only means one thing ... it's time for Trashy Tuesday!

This week's top honor goes to yours truly for not just one, but two boneheaded moves made Sunday morning in which I benched Chris Thompson (30 points) and Sterling Shepard (29 points) in the same league.

Instead, I started Martavius Bryant (5 points) and Adam Thielen (14 points, against my own advice too).


So for that, I'm nominating myself for having the trashiest Tuesday because those two moves cost me in a league in which I finished as the third highest scoring team while having more points on my bench than three other teams scored in the same league.

I also said to not start Wylie grad Case Keenum. Oops, again.

Anyways, on to this week's top underperformers.


QB -- This is an easy call as Oakland QB Derek Carr had the nation's eyes on him in NBC's primetime game. Carr proceeded to show why he's a $25 million annual guy with his wonderful 19-of-31 performance for a mind-boggling 118 yards with one score and two interceptions. Wait, that's not worthy of that type of money. Carr managed just 5.2 points which is less than what Baltimore backup QB Ryan Mallett did in mopup duty of a 44-7 Ravens loss. Phillip Rivers gets honorable mention here for his uncanny ability to complete passes to Kansas City Chiefs players.




RB -- Coming off a Week 2 game in which he ran for over 120 yards, Miami running back Jay Ajayi looked to build off that against the woeful Jets. Instead, Ajayi ran for 16 yards on 11 carries. Projected to score 17.5 points, Ajayi finished with just 4.5 points. Ouch.


WR -- As much as I would love to give it to Odell Beckham Jr. for his completely tasteless celebration on his first touchdown Sunday, this week's honor goes to Lions WR Kenny Golladay. After posting 22.9 points in Week 1, Golladay has just 6.3 points in the last two weeks combined after putting up two catches for 25 yards in the Lions loss to the Falcons. Golladay is going to need to start showing some consistency before being counted on in fantasy.

Kenny G

TE -- Believe it or not, this is going to the top performer this week -- Marcedes Lewis of the Jaguars. Zero percent owned. ZERO. As in nobody wanted him prior to this week. All he did was catch four passes with three going for scores and 28.2 points. Don't succumb to the hype and pick him up this week as he had no catches this year prior to the big game. He's a blocking tight end that thrived across the pond. His ownership Monday increased to 2.2 percent.



D/ST -- The Ravens. After starting the year with 22 points against the Bengals and a 15-point effort against the Browns, Baltimore laid the proverbial egg in getting destroyed 44-7 by the Jaguars. Baltimore had four interceptions in each of its first two games and had eight sacks in that time. Sunday? Nada. Nothing. Zilch. ZERO.

Ravens D

K -- Justin Tucker. Hard to blame him when his team had just 186 yards of offense in the putrid effort. The promising news is that the Ravens asked the NFL to not have a bye week this week and will get to bounce back instead of stewing over the lack of opportunities.


Until next week, Later Newsers!
