Week 15 Street FA Report

Updated: December 13th 2022

The final week of the Street FA report is sadly here so for those of you who have made it to your quarter-finals congrats. As always, 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

Rex Burkhead, RB, HOU (Owned 33%)

Week 14: 2/-3 yards, 1 Rec/5 yards

Much of the buzz for backfield tandems to add this week will be focused on New England with Pierre Strong and Kevin Harris’ touchdowns in prime time at the forefront of everyone’s mind. However, there is still a fair chance that Damien Harris can return this week and even potentially Rhamondre Stevenson has an outside shot to play. Instead, if you are making the playoffs but need a definite option then look to Houston with Rex Burkhead. Technically, Dare Ogunbawale out-snapped Burkhead last week but expect a full week of game planning without Dameon Pierce to  lean more on Burkhead in week 15 who was coming off of a concussion. 

Suggested Bid: $7,0000,000

RB Adds


Pierre Strong / Kevin Harris, RB, NE (Owned 48 / 12%)

Week 14: 5 Car/70 yards, 1 TD, 2 Rec/20 yards – 8 Car/26 yards, 1 TD

Both New England rookie running backs put on a strong performance against a plus matchup for ball carriers in week 14. The injury status to the two (2) starters ahead of them will play a big factor into their expected performance this week. Pierre Strong likely holds up better for the wait and see approach since his role as the pass catcher is less likely to be affected in case of a Damien Harris return.

Suggested Bid: $7,000,000 (PS) / $6,000,000 (KH)

Marlon Mack, RB, DEN (Owned 30%)

Week 14: 3 Car/15 yards, 2 Rec/62 yards, 1 TD

It was the return of Mack for Marlon Mack in week 14 as he scored over 10 PPR points for the first time since week 17 of 2019. Most of his production came on his one (1) touchdown catch of 66 yards but with Mike Boone leaving the game and his season now over, Mack becomes the de facto RB2 for Denver the rest of the season. This game was by far the most productive for Denver’s inept offense so it should not be considered a likelihood that they can frequently support two (2) running backs so target Mack only after their other four (4) RBs mentioned earlier.

Suggested Bid: $2,000,000

WR Add

Chris Moore, WR, HOU (Owned 17%)

Week 14: 10 Rec/124 yards

With Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins missing last week’s game Chris Moore took full advantage by commanding 41 percent (!) of the target share. A matchup this week against Kansas City seems like a bad fantasy start but so too did the Cowboys last week and Kansas City’s defense has been prone to giving up decent fantasy performance to opposing wide receivers. Amari Rodgers also had his first decent game as a pro but Moore has been consistently more involved in the offense and would be the safer of the two (2) options in the final three (3) games.

Suggested Bid: $5,000,000

TE Add

Noah Gray, TE, KC (Owned 15%)

Week 14: 3 Rec/45 yards

As we have seen the last two (2) weeks, big injuries can strike at any moment and create chaos for adding a new player to fill that void. Kansas City has one of the easier tight end matchups during the playoffs which bodes well for those with Travis Kelce. To be savvy, adding Noah Gray for “break glass” emergencies might be what saves someone’s championship in case something was to happen to Kelce over the next three (3) weeks. Gray has seen a handful of targets even with Kelce available so it is not a bad idea to stash him on your practice squad as a “just in case”.

Suggested Bid: $100,000

Sleeper Add (<25%)

David Johnson, RB, NO (Owned 10%)

Week 14: N/A

Remember David Johnson, dual-threat running back who was traded for DeAndre Hopkins and then slowly faded out of fantasy? Well Dennis Allen cannot seem to just let Alvin Kamara be the bell-cow running back he could be and after Mark Ingram was lost for what should be the rest of the season, Allen has brought in Johnson to likely fill in for Ingram. Whether Allen used Johnson as a 1-for-1 substitute for Ingram remains to be seen but goal line and short yard usage should present some intrigue into Johnson’s fantasy viability this week against a porous Falcons defense. If you have made it this far in the season you are likely not going to be starting Johnson in any scenario but if he’s active and you are a thrill seeker…

Suggested Bid: $500,000
