Week 6 Street FA Report

Updated: October 14th 2020

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

Travis Fulgham, WR – PHI (Owned 3%)

Week 5: 10 Rec/152 yards, 1 TD

Everyone’s waiver wire priority pick, wide receiver Travis Fulgham, had a breakout game last Sunday with over 30PPR points. Many may have passed on him two weeks ago when he scored the go-ahead touchdown against the 49ers but it is unlikely that he will remain available moving forward. The Eagles have been looking for a receiver to break through and give Carson Wentz someone to rely on other than Zach Ertz. Hopefully, the coaching staff lets him continue his development even as DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffrey return to the lineup. As it stands Fulgham is looking like a player to dump the remainder of your cap space on.

Suggested Bid: $10,000,000 (or 70% of remaining cap space)

QB Add

Andy Dalton, QB – DAL (Owned 17%)

Week 5: 9/11, 111 yards, 1 Car/0 yards

Those who roam the streets for quarterbacks week-to-week or Superflex owners who struggle to have available second quarterbacks may have caught a break if Andy Dalton was somehow still available coming into week 5. The gruesome and unfortunate injury to Dak Prescott has opened the door for Andy Dalton to be the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys for the remainder of the season. The offense should take a step back, if for nothing else than because it was on a record pace for passing numbers but do not slouch on Dalton’s skills. He is a good enough quarterback that he should keep all his receivers’ fantasy value afloat. In his 13 games with the Bengals last year, and with only a healthy Tyler Boyd to throw to, Dalton still averaged almost 16 points per game (15.7). Dalton should be at least a mid-QB2 each week with a higher upside because of the situation and players surrounding him. He needs to be rostered as of this week in all but the shallowest of leagues.

Suggested Bid: $3,000,000 Standard / $12,000,000 – $20,000,000 Superflex

RB Add

J.D. McKissic, RB – WAS (Owned 34%)

Week 5: 1 Car/3 yards, 6 Rec/46 yards

J.D. McKissic continues to be the torn in Antonio Gibson’s side as he is playing an equal number of snaps and is the primary pass-catching back when Washington is trailing, which no shocker is quite often. McKissic has had 16 targets and 13 catches over the last two games along with playing 55 percent and 50 percent of the team’s offensive snaps. He is a poor man’s James White so if you are scrambling for running backs or know that you have a tough bye week this week with some prominent names at the position unavailable, McKissic could be a filler against the Giants.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

WR Add

Josh Reynolds, WR – LAR (Owned 40%)

Week 5: 2 Rec/46 yards

Remember when Van Jefferson was going to be taking over the WR3 slot on the Rams? Veteran Josh Reynolds has continued to hold him off by out snapping (by a large margin) every game this season. Reynolds has not popped on the stat sheet just yet but only his week 1 performance you would say was not worth the value that he has right now. As a player who is available in 60 percent of leagues right now, he is averaging 6.4PPR points over his last four (4) games. Not great, but more consistent than some of the other bottom feeders on your bench. If anything was to happen to Robert Woods or Cooper Kupp, Reynolds would step into a significant value bump also.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

TE Add

Cameron Brate, TE – TB (Owned 16%)

Week 5: 5 Rec/44 yards

I went back and forth last week on recommending either Richard Rodgers or Cameron Brate as the tight end add and chose wrong. Brate did not play a ton of snaps last Thursday, only 46 percent, but he was efficient with five (5) catches on six (6) targets. Tom Brady has a familiarity with Rob Gronkowski but he has also been known to get the ball to guys who show they can get open. Brate is probably more of the pass-catching tight end at this point and as long as the Buccaneers continue to put up big offensive numbers there will always be a chance for scoring opportunities. Add Brate to your list of available streaming tight ends and play the matchup each week if that is your usual strategy.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Sleeper Add

Jeff Smith, WR – NYJ (Owned 10%)

Week 5: 3 Rec/23 yards

The Jets are terrible but you know what terrible teams do? They pass the ball a lot while losing. Jeff Smith is a player that stood out two Thursday’s ago against the Broncos and then checking his stats last week he was tied for eighth (8th) in targets against the Cardinals with eleven (11). He also played 95 percent and 99 percent of the snaps those two weeks showing that he has both the usage and opportunity to have under the radar fantasy production. If whoever is playing quarterback can make those targets more efficient, Jeff Smith might have WR4 appeal in 2020.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Week 11 Street FA Report

Updated: November 18th 2019

Each week we will recommend a group of players that are owned in less than 50% of RSO league that should be rostered. Depending on roster and league sizes not all of these players may be available. For that, we will offer 1 player that is owned in <10% of leagues as our Sleeper add.

Add of the Week

Jay Ajayi, RB – PHI (Owned 46.5%)

Week 10: N/A

Weeks after it was being reported that Jay Ajayi is ready to return to football after tearing his ACL last season he has finally found a home with a familiar team. The Eagles announced that Darren Sproles is done for the season and Jordan Howard is nursing his own injury so it made sense that the team brings in a veteran that both knows the offensive playbook and has shown success in recent times. Ajayi is unlikely to make a big impact immediately unless an unforeseen injury to rookie Miles Sanders forced him to be, so it will be cautious optimism at this point to add him to your roster. Still, any running back that could have potential goal-line opportunities is worth the roster spot for the stretch run of the season.

Suggested Bid: $3,000,000

RB Add

Jalen Richard, RB – OAK (Owned 37%)

Week 10: 2 Car/0 yards, 4 Rec/43 yards

Whether it has been game script or Josh Jacobs’ injury, Jalen Richard has been an under the radar option in PPR leagues for RBs during these past two heavy bye weeks. Used primary in a Darren Sproles-esk capacity, Richard has had 10 and 8 points the last two weeks on the back of seven (7) receptions and just less than 100 yards receiving. He will not be stealing many carries away from Jacobs, never having more than four (4) carries in a game, but his receiving ability does give him upside in spreads that don’t favor the Raiders moving forward. Deep leagues that are in a pinch for running back help can look to Richard as an alternative option to the Ajayi sweepstakes.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

WR Add

Josh Reynolds, WR – LAR (Owned 39%)

Week 10: 3 Rec/49 yards

It appears that Brandin Cooks will be out again for week 11 and his status for future weeks with his concussion are up in the air. Meanwhile, Josh Reynolds stepped in last week as he did with Cooper Kupp’s injury last season as the team’s WR3 and had a so-so performance. He was, however, the second most targeted receiver (5) on the team. He’s not a flashy play like Brandin Cooks but looking at the raw numbers Reynolds produced about the same fantasy production as Cooks was before his injury. With the Rams not beating down on teams anymore and games against Baltimore, Seattle, Dallas and San Francisco remaining on the schedule, game scripted passing opportunities are going to be there for Reynolds and other Jared Goff targets.

Suggested Bid: $2,000,000

TE Add

Ryan Griffin, TE – NYJ (Owned 27%)

Week 10: 1 Rec/-2 yards

I know I recommended Griffin last week and he did absolutely nothing against the Giants but my prediction of Chris Herndon reinjuring himself came true so now Griffin is once again the clear TE1 for the Jets.  He’s not a stud option at the position but opportunities and red zone possessions are the name of the game for streaming tight ends and without another real threat to his snaps that’s all fantasy players can ask for. An upcoming schedule of Washington, Oakland, Cincinnati, and Miami should allow the Jets to have plenty of scoring and red zone opportunities for Griffin to grab a touchdown or two and hopefully he can gain some yardage between the 20’s as well. If there are upcoming weeks that you don’t like your starting tight end’s matchup Griffin is another option to bring off the bench to pinch-hit.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

 Sleeper Add (<10%)

Chester Rogers, WR – IND (Owned 9%)

Week 10: 2 Rec/31 yards

T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell have already been ruled out but Jacoby Brissett looks to be returning for Week 11’s game against the Jaguars. That is an upgrade at the quarterback throwing the ball and the removal of potential target obstacles for Chester Rogers. As it stands only Zach Pascal is ahead of Rogers on the depth chart for wideouts but we know Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle will also be involved from the tight end position. Still, teams truly desperate for a WR4/5 this week could hope that Rogers gets around five or six targets and gets over 50 yards receiving. It could also be another week or two before Hilton returns so one could roll the dice again next week against Houston if needed.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Week 9 Street FA Report

Updated: October 30th 2019

Each week we will recommend a group of players that are owned in less than 50% of RSO league that should be rostered. Depending on roster and league sizes not all of these players may be available. For that, we will offer 1 player that is owned in <10% of leagues as our Sleeper add.

Add of the Week

Josh Reynolds, WR – LAR (Owned 27%)

Week 8: 1 Car/-1 yard, 3 Rec/73 yards, 1 TD

It is unknown the extent of Brandin Cooks’ injury but having his second head injury this season is not a good sign. He is going to see a specialist so in the meantime Josh Reynolds steps into the WR3 role in what is still an above-average passing offense. He had eight (8) targets last week but only made three (3) catches and was overshadowed by Cooper Kupp’s monster game. We know that Reynolds had a role when he was the WR3 last year with Kupp out the second half of the season so Reynolds is a savvy add while the Rams are on their bye week in case Cooks is out for a prolonged absence. He would likely hold WR4 value in each game Cooks misses.

Suggested Bid: $5,000,000

RB Add

Jeff Wilson Jr, RB – SF (Owned 33%)

Week 8: 2 Car/6 yards 

If you are in desperate need of an RB this week quickly grab Jeff Wilson before they play on Thursday night. Behind Tevin Coleman, the 49ers are banged up with only a couple days of practice to prove their health. Wilson may be the last man standing when all is said and done. Kyle Shanahan wants to rotate in multiple backs throughout the game and Wilson was used earlier in the season as the primary goal-line back when Coleman was out himself. We will see how the rotation goes on Thursday but as it goes for free agents backs available this week Jeff Wilson probably has the safest floor and highest touchdown upside in week 9.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

WR Add

Alex Erickson, WR – CIN (Owned 17%)

Week 8: 6 Rec/97 yards

Another WR likely to remain a free agent because of his bye week, Alex Erickson has had three solid games averaging 9 targets, 6 receptions, and 94 yards. The Bengals will continue to pass the ball heavily for the rest of the season so the pass attempts will be there. We are also waiting to see when A.J. Green will return and how effective he will be when he does. On top of all this, it is being reported Andy Dalton will be benched allowing backup Ryan Finley to start for at least week 10. Often times backup receivers and backup quarterback have a rapport from reps in training camp and preseason as the second-team offense so there may be more familiarity between Erickson and Finley than with other receivers at this point in time. We will see what the new Bengals offense looks like when they return from their bye but Erickson is a strong second half candidate if the Bengals are trying to see what assets they have moving forward.

Suggested Bid: $3,000,000

TE Add

Jonnu Smith, TE – TEN (Owned 33%)

Week 8: 6 Rec/78 yards, 1 TD

Jonnu Smith had been a hot tight end sleeper the last two seasons but he has been a dud for the most part. The three-year learning curve for tight ends might be a real thing however as Smith looked strong the last two weeks while Delaine Walker nurses his own injuries. Ryan Tannehill has also brought some rejuvenation to a very stagnant passing offense for Tennessee so that gives Titans’ pass catchers another boost moving forward. For as long as Delaine Walker is out Jonnu Smith is a borderline TE1 most weeks, especially with some big TEs on byes over the next two weeks.

Suggested Bid: $4,000,000

Sleeper Add (<10%)

Russell Gage, WR – ATL (Owned 3%)

Week 8: 7 Rec/58 yards

After Emmanuel Sanders was traded away everyone was trying to figure out which receiver would be the next man up for fantasy points in Denver. It was never discussed however who was going to step up once Mohammed Sanu was shipped out of Atlanta. We got our answer in week 8 with second-year receiver Russell Gage who was second on the team with nine (9) targets. It remains to be seen whether this was another product of a backup quarterback being more comfortable throwing to a player he had been working with during the offseason or if Gage will be a reliable option once Matt Ryan returns in week 10. Either way Gage is a player that you can stash on your practice squad and activate if he has another good game in week 10 against the Saints.

Suggested Bid: $350,000

Week 11 Street FA Report

Updated: November 15th 2018

Each week we will recommend a group of players that are owned in less than 50% of RSO league that should be rostered. Depending on roster and league sizes not all of these players may be available. For that, we will offer 1 player that is owned in <10% of leagues as our Sleeper add.

Byes: Buffalo, Cleveland, Miami, New England, NYJ, San Francisco

Add of the Week

Josh Reynolds, WR – LAR (Owned 26%)

Week 10: N/A

If you are in 3 of 4 leagues where Josh Reynolds isn’t already owned you need to drop your cap space on him immediately. With Cooper Kupp out for the rest of the season, Reynolds will step back into the WR3 role that he had when Kupp missed time earlier this season. The Rams run 11 personnel (3 WR, 1 TE, 1 RB) almost the entire game (95%) which means that Reynolds will be on the field a lot for the remainder of the season. He may not be as consistent a fantasy producer as Kupp but his ceiling is worth risking it.

Suggested Bid: $7,000,000 – $10,000,000

RB Add

Jacquizz Rodgers, RB – TB (Owned 10.5%)

Week 10: 1 Car/0 yards, 8 Rec/102 yards

It was amazing to see the Buccaneers put up over 500 yards of offense and somehow manage only 3 points. Within those 500 yards though was 100 receiving yards from running back Jacquizz Rodgers. This could be a more common feature, although not likely 100 yards a week, for the Bucs moving forward. Ryan Fitzpatrick will always be a gunslinger but having a check down option never hurts an offense that is likely to be in “catch-up” mode for most of the game. This may have been a single game standout for Rodgers but with playoffs around the corner, it’s time to start stashing as many bench options as possible if you are in the hunt.

Suggested Bid: $500,000 – $1,000,000

WR Add

Brandon LaFell, WR – OAK (Owned 11%)

Week 10: 4 Rec/47 yards

Brandon LaFell was brought in a couple of weeks ago to fill the hole at receiver when the Raiders traded away Amari Cooper. A couple weeks later and he now appears to be their primary receiver. What’s more is that both Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant are injured leaving minimal options for Derek Carr to throw the ball to for the next 6 weeks. The Raiders offense is not going to score many points each week but in PPR leagues having a team’s number one target is always a good thing to stash on the bench for emergencies. LaFell could remain a deep WR play for struggling teams that can’t afford/acquire Josh Reynolds.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

TE Adds

Tyler Higbee, TE – LAR (Owned 20%)

Week 10: 3 Rec/25 yards, 1 TD

There’s a similar analysis here for Tyler Higbee as with Josh Reynolds but on a lower scale. Targets will become available with Kupp out of the lineup, however, only one tight end will be on the field at any given time. Higbee plays about 77% of the snaps so he will have the opportunity to carve a new role out for himself. You should temper your expectations, however, as he has only reached four (4) targets twice this season.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Sleeper Add (<10%)

Dontrelle Inman, WR – IND (Owned 3.8%)

Week 10: 4 Rec/41 yards

A team polar opposite to LA Rams in terms of tight end usage, the Colts love to get their big guys involved in the passing game and had their third game this season with multiple tight ends scoring a touchdown. The story underneath of that, however, is that of newly acquired receiver Dontrelle Inman stepping in as the WR2 behind T.Y. Hilton the past two weeks. Maybe it is because Ryan Grant isn’t fully healthy yet but Inman had four catches to Grant’s one in week 10. Chester Rogers has also become non-existent since bringing in Inman and Grant returning. Like Brandon LaFell, Inman could have great appeal for teams that need some receiver depth but won’t be able to acquire Josh Reynolds this week. Plus no one is talking about him so he should be cheap to acquire.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Week 7 Street FA Report

Updated: October 18th 2018

Each week we will recommend a group of players that are owned in less than 50% of RSO league that should be rostered. Depending on roster and league sizes not all of these players may be available.

Byes: Green Bay, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Seattle

Add of the Week

Terrelle Pryor, WR – NYJ (Owned 47.6%)

Week 6: 5 Rec/57 yards, 1 TD

Terrelle Pryor scored a touchdown for a second consecutive week and had his most targets (6) since week 2 against the Dolphins. More importantly, it appears Quincy Enunwa will be missing several weeks with an ankle injury. This gives Pryor the opportunity to step into the #2 role opposite Robby Anderson. The Jets’ offense has been a surprisingly useful bunch for fantasy players and if they can keep up their scoring efficiency, Pryor may become a strong mid-season add for what will be a heavy receiver bye week coming up.

Suggested Bid: $3,000,000 – $5,000,000

RB Add

Ito Smith, RB – ATL (Owned 46.5%)

Week 6: 11 Car/22 yards, 1 TD, 2 Rec/-1 yards

With Devonta Freeman going on IR it is time to fully embrace Ito Smith as more of a stable fantasy option for the second half of the season. Smith has a touchdown each of the last three weeks and will likely continue to get goal line work. Tevin Coleman is still the more appealing option in Atlanta’s backfield but now that Falcons are committing to putting Freeman on the shelf they may be more inclined to get Ito Smith involved in their weekly game plan. For someone who is free in nearly half of all leagues, Smith is an easy addition to any team.

Suggested Bid: $3,000,000 – $6,000,000

WR Add

Cole Beasley, WR – DAL (Owned 31%)

Week 6: 9 Rec/101 yards, 2 TDs


Eventually, if I recommend every Dallas player I should get one right, right? The anemic Cowboys somehow hung 40 points on one of the best defenses in football and it was Cole Beasley who racked up huge fantasy points scoring two touchdowns and going over 100 yards. Beasley saw 11 targets after having only 16 in the previous four weeks. Run the ball with Zeke and work over the middle with the shifty Beasley seems like a simple enough game plan. Maybe this will kick start Scott Linehan to use his slot receiver more often. Couldn’t hurt right?

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

Josh Reynolds, WR – LA (Owned 26%)

Week 6: 1 Rec/-2 yards

It will be tough for Cooper Kupp owners to replace his week-to-week value after it was announced that he is going to miss several weeks with a knee injury. In his absence though second-year receiver Josh Reynolds should be the main beneficiary. There was a lot of hype during the draft last season that saw Reynolds as a mid-3rd round target. However, being buried on the depth chart hasn’t left much room for him to showcase his talents just yet. With how high scoring the Rams’ offense has been this season Reynolds moving up to the WR3 spot this should give an indication of whether or not he can be a fantasy viable asset.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000 or 3rd round pick

TE Add

C.J. Uzomah, TE – CIN (Owned 38%)

Week 6: 6 Rec/57 yards

A lot of fantasy points to go around in week 6 for the Bengals which means that C.J. Uzomah is looking like a rosterable TE. He was Cincinnati’s only targeted tight end with 7 targets last week which was also good for third on the team behind A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd. Andy Dalton has always liked having Tyler Eifert as a safety option and it seems that Uzomah will be the primary receiving tight end moving forward. He will be a matchup-based play each week but he is definitely worth an add if you are rotating your starting TE week-to-week.

Suggested Bid: $2,000,000 – $3,000,000

Week 13 Street FA Report

Updated: November 30th 2017

Each week we will recommend a group of players that are owned in less than 50% of RSO league that should be rostered. Depending on roster and league sizes not all of these players may be available. For that, we will offer 1 player that is owned in <10% of leagues as our Sleeper add.

Add of the Week

Dontrelle Inman, WR – CHI (Owned 28%)

Week 12: 4 Rec/44 yards

The trade deadline was an eventful week this season but there was one trade, the Chargers trading Dontrelle Inman to the Bears for a conditional seventh-round pick, which went pretty much unnoticed in the fantasy community. He was inactive for his first game with the Bears but since has become their most targeted receiver with 23 targets in 3 games. Inman is the best outside receiver the Bears have at this point so it’s likely that his target volume continues. With remaining games against the 49ers, Bengals, Lions, and Browns there should be plenty of opportunities to get in the end zone as well.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000 – $2,000,000

QB Add

Blaine Gabbert, QB – ARZ (Owned 13%)

Week 12: 22 for 38, 241 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT, 6 Car/17 yards

Gabbert did more than enough to stick it to his old team in week 12 and secure a victory against a tough Jacksonville defense. He has also shown enough to Bruce Arians and the coaching staff to be named the starter for the near future. In 2QB/Superflex leagues he’s a must own and in regular leagues, he’s a tentative add for any team entering the playoffs without a clear QB1 on their squad. After a tough matchup next week against the Rams, Gabbert has great playoff matchups against Tennessee, Washington, and the Giants. All are allowing over 17 points per week to QBs. If your starter has any questionable matchups in the playoffs it wouldn’t hurt to consider Gabbert if he plays as well as he did against Jacksonville.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000 ($5,000,000 in 2QB/SFLX)

RB Add

Peyton Barber, RB – TB (Owned 4.5%)

Week 12: 5 Car/7 yards, 2 TD

Doug Martin left week 12 against the Falcons with a concussion forcing the Bucs to return to a committee for backfield touches. Jacquizz Rodgers led the team with 8 carries but it was Peyton Barber who scored two short touchdowns on his 5 carries. In week 10 I wrote about how Barber saw an increased amount of carries after the Bucs took Martin out in a blowout and it suggested that Barber might have a bigger role if Martin was to miss time in the future. While the team was in catch-up mode for most of the afternoon the Bucs showed that Barber would be more frequently used in traditional run formations especially around the goal line. If Martin’s concussion symptoms forced him to miss any additional time Barber could be a late season add that could pay off for a game or two.

Suggested Bid: $500,000 – $1,000,000

WR Add

Josh Reynolds, WR – LAR (Owned 33%)

Week 12: 4 Rec/37 yards, 1 TD

Earlier in the week, a report surfaced that suggested Josh Reynolds would be featured significantly more with Robert Woods declared out for their game against the Saints. “Coach speak” like this comes out weekly from every team so it wasn’t much to get up and check the wire to see if he was available. But after scoring his first career touchdown and accumulating almost 14 PPR points he should be on the radars. A rookie out of Texas A&M, Reynolds was Matt Waldman’s WR2 in his pre-draft RSP and described him as, “Tall and wiry. He’s built a lot like A.J. Green, and his style of play has similarities.” That’s high praise for a player that fell in the draft and subsequently lost a lot of stock when it came to rookie drafts this offseason. Still, Reynolds can win battles outside the numbers and get open in the end zone, like with his touchdown last week. With Robert Woods out a couple more weeks Reynolds could have another productive game next week against the Cardinals.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

TE Add

Ricky Seals-Jones, TE – ARZ (Owned 7.5%)

Week 12: 4 Rec/72 yards, 1 TD

Everyone who thought Ricky Seals-Jones’ 2 touchdown game in week 11 was a fluke raise your hand. Ya, me too. Well after he scored another touchdown in week 12 and added a respectable 72 yards receiving he’s must add now. For the same reasons that Blaine Gabbert could be a fantasy relevant player in the playoffs with decent matchups so to could Seals-Jones. While Tennessee is in the top third against TEs, Washington, and New York are two of the worst in terms of TE points allowed. It wouldn’t be surprising if Seals-Jones has another TE1 finish in at least one game during the playoffs.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

Sleeper Add (<10%)

Cordarrelle Patterson, WR – OAK (Owned 9%)

Week 12: 3 Rec/72 yards

Michael Crabtree is suspended for two games after last week’s brawl and Amari Cooper had a pretty serious injury that resulted in him having both a sprained ankle and a concussion. This leaves Cordarrelle Patterson, Seth Roberts, and Johnny Holton as the remaining receivers that get to go up against the Giants this week. The Raiders like to use Patterson for gadget and trick plays because of his speed and quickness so I expect them to use him more over the next two weeks while they operate without their top two receivers.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
