Week 8 Street FA Report

Updated: October 24th 2023

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

Pierre Strong Jr, RB, CLE (Owned 47%)

Week 7: 8 Car/25 yards

Find the weekly injury, add the next man up. That seems to be the theme for each AotW in 2023 as yet another running back injury adds to the already limited number of viable fantasy starters at the position in any given week. Jeromy Ford is expected to miss at least a couple of games and so Pierre Strong and Kareem Hunt will be the only two (2) ball carriers available for the Browns in his absence. Strong actually played more snaps than Hunt despite the higher fantasy production from Hunt in week 7 and was the planned option C going into the season. He is also available in more league right now so he gets the nod as the recommendation for Week 8. 

Suggested Bid: $2,000,000

RB Add

Chase Edmonds, RB, TB (Owned 34%)

Week 7: N/A

This week more than any other this season we find ourselves taking a lot of speculative guesses on whether some players can assume more of/a better role than they previously have had during the first half of the season. Chase Edmonds has not played since Week 2 and did not look like much when he was on the field earlier this season. However, the Bucs backfield behind Raachad White has done nothing to suggest that they should be awarded more playing time than the veteran and as mentioned above it seems every week that a starting running back is going down for a couple games. Do I expect Edmonds to do much this season, not really, but I would rather be a week early and move on than have to pay up a week late in case of anything.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

WR Add

Demario Douglas, WR, NE (Owned 20%)

Week 7: 1 Car/20 yards, 4 Rec/54 yards

Outside of Kendrick Bourne the only receiver New England has had looked consistently explosive (when healthy) is Demario Douglas. The sixth-round selection from Liberty has been battling through injuries thus far this season but when on the field he appears to be more useful than DeVante Parker or the ghost of Juju Smith-Schuster. If the Patriots’ offense can look at least as competent as it did in Week 7, Douglas could have deep league appeal during the final six (6) weeks of the fantasy regular season.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

TE Add

Elijah Higgins, TE, ARZ (Owned 8%)

Week 7: 1 Rec/0 yards

Zach Ertz has been placed on the Injured Reserve meaning that the Cardinals will be left with Trey McBride, Geoff Swaim, and rookie Elijah Higgins as their three (3) tight ends for at least the next month. McBride probably (?) will be the most beneficial of Ertz’s absence but do not overlook Higgins potential increase in usage as well. The former Stanford wide receiver was drafted as a tight end by the Dolphins this pre-season and had been inactive up until this week when he caught his first career reception. Definitely look to other options if you need a startable tight end this week but if you are a dynasty player who likes to bargain bin your tight end depth, stash Higgins on your practice squad and see what he does over the month of November. 

Suggested Bid: $500,000 (PS $100,000)

Sleeper Add (<25%)

Nick Westbrook-Ikhine, WR, TEN (Owned 22%)

Week 7: N/A

I am purely speculating that DeAndre Hopkins may be traded between now and next Tuesday’s trade deadline. The Titans have already shown to be sellers moving on from Kevin Byard and maybe a team is willing to offer a mid day three (3) pick to bolster their receiving room for Hopkins. In that case, Nick Westbrook-Ikhine becomes the de facto WR1 for Tennessee until Treylon Burks is fully healthy. NWI has proven in past seasons that he can be a fantasy WR5 option when his role is unchallenged so deeper leagues he can be added this week until the trade deadline.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

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
