Week 12 Street FA Report

Updated: November 23rd 2021

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

Cedrick Wilson, WR – DAL (Owned 24%)

Week 11: 4 Rec/36 yards

Six (6) teams are playing on Thanksgiving which leads to fewer opportunities for injured players to be available on a short week. Amari Cooper has already been ruled out and CeeDee Lamb has a long way to go for clearing the concussion protocol on just 4 days’ rest. That leaves Cedrick Wilson to potentially be the WR2 for Dallas against a Raiders team that has not looked strong during their three-game slide. If both Cooper and Lamb are out, Wilson holds immediate WR3 potential and could be the front-runner for the annual “comes out of nowhere on Thanksgiving” performance.

Suggested Bid: $2,000,000

RB Add

DeeJay Dallas, RB – SEA (Owned 33%)

Week 11: 4 Car/25 yards, 1 TD, 1 Rec/2 yards

Chris Carson was declared out for the season after missing the last month with a serious neck injury and Pete Carroll said it would be a running back by committee approach the rest of the season. This left Alex Collins, Rashaad Penny, and DeeJay Dallas as the likely contributors to Seattle’s game plans for the remainder of 2021. Rashaad Penny, however, was one and done with a hamstring injury in week 11 that leaves him out of the lineup for an undisclosed amount of time. Only Collins and Dallas now remain as the two-headed backfield for Seattle. The two split their snaps evenly in week 11, 18 each, in an otherwise terrible game from the Seahawks’ offense. Collins is likely owned in most leagues at this point but DeeJay is another RB to add to the platoon of bench options and he could be used in rotation at the flex position any given week.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

WR Add

Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, WR – TEN (Owned 9.5%)

Week 11: 7 Rec/107 yards

From Week 4 sleeper to Week 12 add, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine shined in an otherwise awful Titans’ game last week. Julio Jones was inactive and A.J. Brown was in and out of the game with various ailments allowing Westbrook-Ikhine to have his best statistical game of the season. With an upcoming matchup against the Patriots, it will be assured that Bill Belichick will be forcing the Titans to rely on someone else other than Brown to beat them. Look for Westbrook-Ikhine to have another decent shot at being a WR3/4 this week in fantasy.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

TE Add

Jack Doyle, TE – IND (Owned 20%)

Week 11: 3 Rec/30 yards

It is a testament to the position of the tight end when I say that consistently scoring at least six (6) PPR points over the last four (4) weeks should be considered a good quality but that is where the state of the position is right now. Jack Doyle has been the more utilized tight end for Indianapolis since my Week 8 recommendation of Mo Alie-Cox and while not necessarily an option that you would feel confident starting week to week, might be a manageable replacement still available for remaining bye weeks to guys like Travis Kelce, Dallas Goedert, Hunter Henry, etc. in the coming weeks.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Sleeper Add (<25%)

Rex Burkhead, RB – HOU (Owned 7%)

Week 11: 18 Car/40 yards

In one of the biggest surprises of Week 11, Rex Burkhead received 18(!) carries in a big win over the Titans. While he only managed 40 yards on those carries it seems to have done enough for the coaching staff to declare Phillip Lindsay as disposable since they then surprisingly cut him on Tuesday. This leaves just Burkhead and David Johnson as the only two (2) realistic options to be in the backfield for the final seven (7) weeks of the season. Burkhead was one of the Patriots’ most versatile weapons in New England as both a runner and receiver so his opportunities are looking much better compared to a week ago. He can be stashed for now to see what David Culley and the Texans’ real plans are going forward with him.

Week 4 Street FA Report

Updated: September 28th 2021

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

Emmanuel Sanders, WR – BUF (Owned 61%)

Week 3: 5 Rec/94 yards, 2 TDs

Still available in 40 percent of leagues, Emmanuel Sanders showed last week that he still can be a fantasy producer in the right offense. The Bills will always have a strong passing attack, so long as Josh Allen is the quarterback, which presents lots of opportunity for Sanders to work alongside Cole Beasley as the number two option behind Stefon Diggs. He has also played on 83 percent of the team’s offensive snaps through the first three (3) weeks and holds a 15.6% target share. I do not suspect Sanders to be available for this column the rest of the season so if he is still sitting on the sidelines in your league, make sure to add him.

Suggested Bid: $2,500,000


RB Add

J.J. Taylor, RB – NE (Owned 18%)

Week 3: 1 Car/2 yards, 2 Rec/3 yards

James White exited New England’s week 3 game early with a hip injury that has since been reported will keep him out of the lineup indefinitely. During the pre-season, Josh McDaniels was evaluating what secondary options he had at running back and J.J. Taylor showed flashes as the next man up for receiving back. With White now out, and the amount of running back targets New England likes to produce each week, Taylor may see an opportunity in PPR leagues to now be rostered. With how poorly the team looked last week, there is a high probability that he does not come onto many other league mate’s radar so it should be enough to stash Taylor on the bench with a minimum contract.

Suggested Bid: $500,000


WR Adds

Josh Gordon, WR – KC (Owned 24%)

Week 3: N/A

Let’s just get this out of the way so we can all get back to our normally scheduled Street FA report. Josh Gordon is attempting yet another comeback to the NFL after being reinstated once again. Gordon has tremendous talents but has not done much since his breakout season in 2013! Now over 30 years old the community is once again ready to fall in love with prospects of what Gordon could be. Signing with Kansas City seems like a no-brainer for him as the coaching staff and ownership is tops in the NFL and he should not have to be in the spotlight with players like Mahomes, Hill, and Kelce controlling the offense. There are still plenty of other receivers in your free agency that should do more than Gordon in fantasy this season but the upside is always too alluring for him to stay a free agent for long. You have been warned.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Braxton Berrios, WR – NYJ (Owned 19%)

Week 3: 2 Rec/26 yards

We do not know for how much longer Jamison Crowder will be sidelined but Braxton Berrios has stepped in and been the primary slot option through Zach Wilson’s first three (3) weeks. Berrios has played on nearly a third (63.5%) of the snaps but has had a 20 percent target share. The problem is that the Jets’ offense is terrible and the scoring opportunities just are not there. Whether Crowder’s return negates Berrios’ role, or if the Jets try and shop the veteran once he is healthy, Berrios can be a PPR WR5 at this point.

Suggested Bid: $500,000


TE Adds

Dalton Schultz, TE – DAL (Owned 27.5%)

Week 3: 6 Rec/80 yards, 2 TD

I toyed with the idea of adding Dalton Schultz in two (2) of my leagues this week but was still holding out to see what Kellen Moore was designing for the Cowboys’ offense after Michael Gallup’s injury in week 1. Now it will cost me, and anyone else waiting on a tight end, as a two (2) touchdown performance on Monday night is sure to skyrocket his ownership. Dak Prescott is not slowing down from his injury last year which means plenty of passing opportunities and red zone targets to go around this season. Blake Jarwin also appears to not be in the game plan for Moore’s offense as much of a pass-catcher. Schultz should be added in most leagues and depending on your starting rotation at the position may be your starting tight end moving forward.

Suggested Bid: $2,000,000

Tommy Tremble, TE – CAR (Owned 22%)

Week 3: 1 Car/7 yards, 1 TD, 1 Rec/30 yards

One long catch and one end-around touchdown seemed to be enough for Head Coach Matt Rhule to give the reins over to rookie tight end Tommy Tremble. The Panthers traded away journeyman Dan Arnold after week 3 leaving only Tremble and Ian Thomas as the two primary tight end options on the roster. Rookie tight ends are notorious for not producing much in their first season/s but without much else in his way, Tremble may present some weeks of fantasy relevance. We are also one week away from having RSO resigns available so Tremble may present a nice multi-year buy-in at a low cost if he builds any momentum throughout the rest of the 2021 season.

Suggested Bid: $500,000


Sleeper Add (<25%)

Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, WR – TEN (Owned <1%)

Week 3: 4 Rec/53 yards, 1 TD

I can admit when I was wrong and despite my best efforts as a sideline cheerleader, it does not appear that Josh Reynolds is going to be anything but a depth receiver in the NFL. A.J. Brown left with a hamstring injury presenting exactly the scenario where I told many to add Reynolds for. Instead, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine took the next-man-up role, playing 78 percent of the snaps in week 3 and scored his first career touchdown. Brown is listed as week-to-week but we know from experience that Brown has a history of starting a game while injured but exiting early. Sneak Westbrook-Iknine on your practice squad this week to see what the extent of Brown’s injury is heading into week 4.

Suggested Bid: $100,000 PS / $500,000 AR
