Week 10 Street FA Report

Updated: November 8th 2022

Each week we will recommend a group of players that are owned in less than 75% of RSO leagues that should be rostered. Depending on roster and league sizes not all of these players may be available. For that, we will offer one (1) player that is owned in <25% of leagues as our Sleeper add.

 

Add of the Week

Kalif Raymond, WR, DET (Owned 32%)

Week 9: 3 Rec/17 yards

The Lions have been in a number of shootouts this season which means plenty of scoring opportunities. We have yet to receive a definitive timeline on if/when rookie Jameson Williams will be available to play and D.J. Chark has been out since week 4. Meanwhile, Kalif Raymond has played on 85 percent of the Lions’ snaps since week 5 and was having solid, double digit PPR production till last week’s snooze-fest against Green Bay. Expect that the Lions will return to their high scoring ways moving forward and Raymond should continue to produce as an under the radar WR4 while acting as the WR2 for Detroit.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

RB Adds

Jerick McKinnon, RB, KC (Owned 47%)

Week 9: 3 Car/4 yards, 6 Rec/40 yards

Sixty-eight (68) pass attempts is a lot, even for Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid, which is likely why Jerrick McKinnon saw 62 percent of the snaps in week 9. Still, with two (2) consecutive weeks now of Isaiah Pacheo eating away at Clyde Edwards-Helaire’s carries the more consistent option, especially in PPR leagues, might just be McKinnon week-to-week now. He has worked primarily as the passing down option and for a team that likes to throw the ball as much in the red-zone as any other, if you are starving for running back support in the final month of the fantasy season see if McKinnon is still out there.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

WR Add

DeAndre Carter, WR, LAC (Owned 38%)

Week 9: 5 Rec/53 yards

DeAndre Carter’s value is directly linked to the availability of both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams to the Chargers. In both of their absence last week Carter put up a season best five (5) receptions and played on over 80 percent of the Chargers’ offensive snaps. If both continue to be out, which could be very likely, Carter offers deep WR4/5 appeal in the meantime.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

TE Add

Cade Otton, TE, TB (Owned 44%)

Week 9: 5 Rec/68 yards, 1 TD

Similar to Isaiah Likely last week there were many managers who may have moved on from Cade Otton when he was not providing much consistency. Frankly, it was looking like another bust performance last week before exploding on the final drive for three (3) receptions and his first career touchdown. Trust has a funny way of building momentum though and we know that Tom Brady looks to those he trusts the most in big moments. While the rest of the receivers were dropping open passes last week, Brady looked for Otton on consistently on the final drive. Could this be building to a fantasy postseason breakout? How much Cameron Brate really factors into the offense if/when he is healthy would be the big concern for Otton the rest of the season.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

Sleeper Add (<25%)

Phillip Dorsett, WR, HOU (Owned 9%)

Week 9: 3 Rec/69 yards

There is obvious turmoil between the Texans organization and Brandin Cooks which led to him being absent from last week’s game. We have no indication if he will sit out the remainder of the season or not but with Nico Collins also nursing an injury this presents an opportunity for other receivers to see more targets. Phillip Dorsett and Chris Moore benefited from these opportunities last week and Dorsett especially could benefit from the “garbage time” points phenomenon as the Texans run through a gauntlet of opponents to end the season.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Week 6 Street FA Report

Updated: October 11th 2022

Each week we will recommend a group of players that are owned in less than 75% of RSO leagues that should be rostered. Depending on roster and league sizes not all of these players may be available. For that, we will offer one (1) player that is owned in <25% of leagues as our Sleeper add.

 

Add of the Week

Khalil Shakir, WR, BUF (Owned 54%)

Week 5: 3 Rec/75 yards, 1 TD

Khalil Skakir took full advantage of both Jamison Crowder and Isaiah McKenzie being inactive last week by scoring his first career touchdown while playing on 70 percent of the Bills’ offensive snaps. A late round selection in many rookie drafts this season, many managers were hoping that Shakir could develop into a solid slot option in a high-powered offense. Once McKenzie and Crowder are healthy there will be discussion on whether Shakir returns to the bench or if the rookie has done enough to warrant more playing time for this coaching staff. If you do not have a re-sign candidate this season consider adding Shakir and re-signing him for a likely near minimum extension.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

 

RB Add

Tevin Coleman, RB, SF (Owned 6%)

Week 5: 8 Car/23 yards, 1 TD, 3 Rec/44 yards, 1 TD

Off the streets and into the endzone, Tevin Coleman rejoined the San Francisco 49ers and had an immediate impact. He only played on 19 snaps but recorded 11 touches and scored twice. Jeff Wilson and Deebo Samuel still held the majority of backfield snaps but the 49ers are always trying to platoon running backs to help keep them healthy and available. It may only be for a few weeks while Elijah Mitchell continues to be out but in the case of the upcoming bye weeks Tevin Coleman could be a spot start RB3/4 over the next month.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

 

WR Add

Randall Cobb, WR, GB (Owned 17.5%)

Week 5: 7 Rec/99 yards

The rookies Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs have not seized the trust of Aaron Rodgers like many thought might happen. While Doubs has had his games it has primarily been Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb who Rodgers is targeting in big moments. The Packers are also not overwhelming teams with their offense right now which has led to them continuing to pass more. It will likely continue for much of this season that Cobb operates as the primary slot option and has big target games like he did last week.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

 

TE Add

Cade Otton, TE, TB (Owned 25%)

Week 5: 6 Rec/43 yards

Anyone who had to spot start Cade Otton last week was blissfully surprised when he finished third in targets for the Bucs in week 5 with seven (7) and played on 94 percent (!) of the offensive snaps which was most among all skill position players. His increased usage was due to Cameron Brate being inactive with a concussion but Otton was seeing about 50 percent of the snaps before Brate’s injury. We know two (2) things about Tom Brady: if he trusts you he is throwing to you and he likes using his tight ends. If week 5 was enough for Tom Brady to say Otton is the option he wants on the field going forward you can bet that he will continue to see strong usage.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

 

Sleeper Add (<25%)

Ben Skowronek, WR< LAR (Owned14%)

Week 5: 6 Rec/41 yards

Ben Skowronek has quietly been playing a west-coast version of Taysom Hill by lining up all over the field to help the Rams wherever needed. He has yet to register a carry, likely because Sean McVay is trying to be more conventional with Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson, but Skowronek has proven that he will be the third option behind Cooper Kupp and Tyler Higbee in the passing game. Allen Robinson is not what people thought he was going to be and Odell Beckham may not come into the window until after the fantasy regular season is over. Skowronek will not likely have a boom WR1 week but during the byes he likely has a higher floor each week than other receivers around his ownership levels.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
