Week 10 Street FA Report

Updated: November 8th 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

Damien Williams, RB – MIA (Owned 50%)

Week 9: 7 Car/14 yards, 6 Rec/47 yards, 1 TD

If you didn’t pick up Kenyan Drake last week you’re likely too late to get him now after his double-digit performance on Sunday Night against the Raiders. Lucky for some, the Dolphins did show that they were willing to use both of their backs so Damien Williams needs to be added this week, especially in PPR leagues. While his production on the ground wasn’t much (14 yards, 2 YPC) he caught all six of his targets and had a nice touchdown to boost his numbers. This was easily the best offensive game for the Dolphins all season and it’s unlikely that they will be able to support two steady fantasy RBs like they did in week 9. Still, unless Drake becomes a workhorse three-down back in this offense it’s likely Williams will see his share of carries and targets.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000 – $2,500,000

RB Adds

Peyton Barber, RB – TB (Owned 2%)

Week 9: 11 Car/34 yards, 2 Rec/20 yards

A lot of blowouts in week 9 allowed for a clearer picture of who the immediate backups are for certain teams. One of those teams, the Buccaneers, surprisingly used Peyton Barber over other options Jacquizz Rodgers and Charles Sims to spell Doug Martin as the second back. Most of Barber’s production came after the game was decided but it is an interesting development to watch because of how low his ownership is. Martin only had 8 carries for 7 yards and hasn’t been the pillar of health during his tenure. If anything should happen to Martin or the Buc’s coaches lose some faith in his ability to produce in this offense Barber could slowly start eating away at his shares. With news that Jameis Winston could be sidelined for a couple of weeks it also conceivable that the running game is used more frequently to aid with backup Ryan Fitzpatrick. A team in a downward spiral the Bucs could be another team looking to see what they have to build with moving into 2018.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Charcandrick West, RB – KC (Owned 34%)

Week 9: 1 Car/3 yards, 5 Rec/30 yards

I wanted to put Charcandrick West on this list after his week 5, two touchdown performance but considered it a fluke game script that allowed him to be on the field near the goal line for two successful passing plays. After the Chiefs game against Dallas however, there may be some holes in the Kareem Hunt armor that makes West an interesting option. Hunt only played 54% of the snaps last week and has scored fewer points in every week since his 40 burger in week 1. We’ve seen this before with Andy Reid when he had Jamaal Charles who was a beast but would at times disappear to due personnel choice. West is used primarily as a satellite back as evident by having only 6 carries through 9 games but with the Chiefs being in more and more competitive games and opponents focusing on stopping Hunt, West may have more opportunities as a pass catcher. We will see how the Chiefs adjust after their bye week but West may see more targets going forward.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

WR Add

Terrance Williams, WR – DAL (Owned 49%)

Week 9: 9 Rec/141 yards

Way back in week 2 I recommended Terrance Williams and he has pretty much stunk it up since then, failing to eclipse more than 4 catches or 50 yards in any game until last week. In the never-ending saga of Ezekiel Elliot’s will he/won’t he play we have seen that Dak Prescott can and will need to pass the ball more if the Cowboys are going to be a playoff team this season. Williams had a tremendous game last week and although Dez Bryant says his ankle injury is nothing to be worried about he has a history of nagging low body injuries. If Dez is hobbled even a little Williams will be the primary beneficiary as he was in the past when Bryant missed games.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

Sleeper Add (<10%)

Keelan Cole, WR – JAX (Owned 1%)

Week 9: 3 Rec/47 yards

Since Allen Robinson’s week 1 injury the Jaguars have focused more on running the ball with Leonard Fournette and tried to avoid having the game on Blake Bortles’ shoulders. With all that focus on the running game, the development of Keelan Cole has become something of a lost story at receiver. An undrafted rookie out of Kentucky Wesleyan, Cole made the team mostly for his special team’s skills but is now pushing Allen Hurns to be the WR2 behind Marqise Lee. If he continues to make one-handed catches like he did last week he may be able to earn more targets in the second half of the season.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
