Week 10 Street FA Report

Updated: November 9th 2019

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

Zach Pascal, WR – IND (Owned 46.5%)

Week 9: 5 Rec/76 yards, 1 TD

T.Y. Hilton is going to be out for what is being reported as a month so everyone should be signing up to acquire Zach Pascal for the rest of the fantasy regular season. With Hilton out last week Pascal played 92% of the team’s snaps and had just under 19PPR points with backup Brian Hoyer in for most of the game. He is the top option for however long Hilton is out and the Colts play the Dolphins next week. He’s going to be a WR2 option in a week of heavy receiver byes. Don’t be cheap, empty your cap space for Pascal.

Suggested Bid: $10,000,000 (or 70% of your cap space)

RB Add

J.D. McKissic, RB – DET (Owned 29%)

Week 9: 4 Car/32 yards, 3 Rec/40 yards, 1 TD

It was probably overblown that Ty Johnson was going to have a major role replacing Kerryon Johnson but 10 points in two weeks is worse than even the biggest skeptics would have predicted. The Lions seem to be reverting back to their gameplans of the early 2010s where they let Matthew Stafford drop back and throw it all game, mixing in a run here and there just to keep defenses honest. This bodes well for J.D. McKissic who acts primarily as the receiving back for Detroit. The Lions have above average RB matchups against Dallas (17th) and Washington (25th) bookended by two games against the suddenly spiraling Chicago Bears (24th) for the remainder of the fantasy regular season. If you are hampered by injuries and byes McKissic is a strong Hail Mary play for those truly desperate.

Suggested Bid: $1,500,000

WR Add

Adam Humphries, WR – TEN (Owned 42%)

Week 9: 4 Rec/65 yards

The Titans have shown faith in Ryan Tannehill as a passer since taking over the starting job in week 7. He is averaging 20PPG and 34 pass attempts over three (3) weeks which has opened up the viability of guys like A.J. Brown and Adam Humphries as fantasy receivers. The latter is available in just over half the leagues so he is more than likely an option for you to grab this week for a spot start. Humphries hasn’t put up the numbers that he was having at the end of last season but compared to how he started this season with Marcus Mariota (5.9 vs. 8 PPG) things are at least trending in the right direction. The Titans should be in “keep up” mode against the Chiefs in week 10 so there is plenty of opportunities for passes to be spread around once again.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

TE Add

Ryan Griffin, TE – NYJ (Owned 11%)

Week 9: 6 Rec/50 yards

Everyone has been waiting for Chris Herndon to return to action after he was suspended for the first four (4) games and then has missed the last month with an injury. Meanwhile, journeyman Ryan Griffin has put together back-to-back solid performances with 35.5PPR points and may have made enough of an impression to keep his role as the Jets TE1. There is no guarantee that Herndon will be back from his injury soon and even if he does hamstring injuries have a funny way of flaring up at any point during a game forcing him back to the sideline without notice. The Jets are a team that has to throw late and come back often in games and with Le’Veon Bell’s recent injury news (more on that in a second) Griffin may find himself as Sam Darnold’s primary option in the red zone.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

Sleeper Add (<10%)

Bilal Powell, RB – NYJ (Owned 5%)

Week 9: 2 Car/16 yards

The Jets have been using Le’Veon Bell as much as a bell cow can be used in 2019 so usually, his backups’ fantasy value would be next to zero at any given time. But he suddenly was added to the injury report on Tuesday and the team promoted Josh Adams from their practice squad which raised some eyebrows about Bell’s health. The team has stated that they did this more so that Adams wouldn’t be claimed by another team but they have already ruled Bell out for Wednesday practice so call me skeptical. Most people will rush to add Ty Montgomery if Bell was to miss time but in the limited amount of snaps that Bell hasn’t been on the field it has been Bilal Powell not Montgomery as the second option. There likely would be a committee between the two in absence of Bell but Powell will be much cheaper and more readily available in leagues. Stash him away for the weekend until we find out the full story from the Jets on Le’Veon Bell’s status.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
