Big Gucci fantasy football “TRAP” pick of the week

Just like a TRAP game, there is a TRAP pick when it comes to fantasy football

New Week New TRAP

In case you were wondering music influences how I create content. Today I want to introduce you to ‘Big Gucci” he will visit us each week to inform us of the fantasy football ‘TRAP” pick of the week.

My focus is to create a weekly offering on Medium every week and when you play fantasy football you have to watch out for the potential TRAP games your lineups may face each week.

The New York Jets are all the buzz around the NFL after Mr. Rodgers was grounded, and they defeated the Buffalo Bills thanks to a special teams punt return in overtime with Zach Wilson at the helm.

They visit the RED HOT Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium for their home opener in week two. With Mr. Rodgers out most owners are expecting a heavy workload from their RB tandem Breece Hall and Dalvin Cook.

I drafted neither of them and would stamp this DUO as a legitimate TRAP play in your lineups this week. The Cowboys home opener after what we witnessed on SNF vs. the Giants? Barkley and Jones combined for 94 yards on the ground, with ZERO TDs. I know this JETS DUO had 160 yards with zero TDs combined against the Bills, but this defense ain't Buffalo’s.

Gucci Mane released a song in 2015 called Bench Warmers. I find it quite fitting if you own and plan to play Cook and Hall. The way these defenses are set up it will be a low-scoring game. I own RB Tony Pollard and as my first pick, he will play for me. Especially after 2 TDS on SNF.

I would take the under on a 39.5 total and the Cowboys are favorites at -9.5 points. In addition, the Cowboys lead the series head up 7–5 dating back to 19721. It’s going to be a game won “In The Trenches” if you ask me.
