Week 10 Street FA Report

Updated: November 9th 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

Eno Benjamin, RB – ARZ (Owned 23%)
Week 9: 9 Car/39 yards, 1 TD

Another big week for backup running back’s value as Chase Edmonds went down immediately in week 9 opening up a massive opportunity for James Connor’s fantasy production to increase as the regular (fantasy) season winds down. The third-string running back, Eno Benjamin, also worked his way into the end zone to bring attention to his value moving forward. The Cardinals are one the more explosive offenses in the league this season and with Kyler Murray occupying much of the attention during zone-read plays, yards per carry should be available to Benjamin during Edmonds’ absence. Benjamin should be added to most leagues’ benches this week and could have solid flex appeal over the next month if working with a rotation of other starting RBs in your lineup.

Suggested Bid: $4,000,000

WR Add

Tre’Quan Smith, WR – NO (Owned 38.5%)

Week 9: 3 Rec/53 yards

It would not be surprising if Tre’Quan Smith become even more available by Wednesday morning as he has not put up stellar stats his first few weeks back from injury and has often been outshined on the highlight reel by other Saints’ receivers. The snaps are there, second-most by a Saints’ receiver since his return in week 7, Smith is just still working his way back into sync with the rotation of quarterbacks that the Saints have at their disposal. The past Drew Brees led offenses that would put up 300 passing yards weekly are gone, but there is still enough for Smith to be a WR5/6 for deeper leagues.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

James Washington, WR – PIT (Owned 28%)

Week 9: 2 Car/13 yards, 1 Rec/42 yards

Many may have missed Chase Claypool limping off the field on the final Pittsburgh drive on Monday Night but his status will be one to monitor heading into week 10. Any diagnosis that costs him practice opens the door for third-year receiver James Washington to see an increased role. The Steelers also have a great matchup against the Lions coming up in week 10 that could result in several players getting a chance to get in the endzone.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

TE Add

Geoff Swaim, TE – TEN (Owned 3%)

Week 9: 4 Rec/29yards, 1 TD

These were back-to-back weeks that Geoff Swaim had four (4) receptions and a touchdown. That immediately puts him on the radar for tight-end streamers looking for red zone opportunities. With Derek Henry gone the Titans are looking at alternative options around the goal line to get the ball to and in the last two (2) weeks, Swaim has been the forgotten man by the defense. With Julio Jones and A.J. Brown taking up much of the defense’s attention this season, that will likely continue to be the situation for Swaim. He is nearly doubling other Titans’ tight ends for positional snaps thus far which bodes well for target opportunities as well.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Sleeper Add (<25%)

Tajae Sharpe, WR – ATL (Owned 19%)
Week 9: 1 Rec/12 yards

It seems like forever ago that Tajae Sharpe was the pre-season darling that was blowing up with the Titans in 2016. He has found a bit of fantasy relevance this season in Atlanta again with Julio Jones leaving in the offseason and Calvin Ridley stepping away from the team recently. Sharpe is coming off a poor performance in week 9 with only one (1) catch but he did have 11 over the previous three (3) weeks. He has also played on 74 percent of snaps since Ridley has been out of the lineup so his opportunities should return to the mean. More of a Hail Mary option week to week, Sharpe is at least bench material to see how the Falcons’ second half to the season transpires.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
