Week 11 Street FA Report

Updated: November 17th 2020

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

Salvon Ahmed, RB – MIA (Owned 15%)

Week 10: 21 Car/85 yards, 1 TD, 1 Rec/5 yards

I will be honest, due to trade deadline moves and a few week 9 byes I had to start Salvon Ahmed in one league and when he scored in the first five minutes of the game, I thought that was enough production to expect from him. He far surpassed that as the PPR RB14 for the week on the back of the fifth (5th) most carries in week 10 with 21. The Dolphins must have been impressed with his performance also because on Monday they released Jordan Howard. As a team in playoff contention, the Dolphins will not mess around with guys they do not think will help them win so they must have seen something from Ahmed for him to warrant all those touches. Who knows what his role will be once guys like Myles Gaskins and Matt Breida return from injury but there is a chance he has earned the starting role.

Suggested Bid: $5,000,000

RB Add

Devontae Booker, RB – LV (Owned 26%)

Week 10: 16 Car/81 yards, 2 TD, 1 Rec/2 yards

It is starting to get into the “cuffing” season where the obvious backups to starting running backs should now be rostered in case the unforeseen happens. We have already seen what happens to the value of players behind guys like Christian McCaffrey, Dalvin Cook, and Nick Chubb when they go down with an injury and so Devontae Booker should be rostered if ever something was to happen to Josh Jacobs. Booker has clearly defined himself as the RB2 in Las Vegas and cleaned up well in garbage time last week. He also has the capability to vulture a touchdown once in a while in case you are truly desperate for deep running back help. His value is room temperature for now but better to get in at the minimum than have to try and outbid everyone if something does happen, especially if you are the Jacobs owner.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

WR Add

Greg Ward, WR – PHI (Owned 38.5%)

Week 10: 5 Rec/39 yards

Remember when every Eagles receiver was going down with injuries so people scrambled to pick up Greg Ward? Travis Fulgham has stolen all of his limelight since then and he has been relegated to free agency in two-thirds of leagues but he has not been that bad in terms of points per game (9.7). The problem has been consistency as Ward has scored 8+ PPR points in the even-numbered weeks and under 8 points in the odd weeks. Kind of a weird stat but at least the chances are there with five (5) or more targets in six (6) of the last seven (7) games. We are going into an odd week, and playing in windy Cleveland, so his performance this week should be down. It could go up in week 12 though as the Eagles play the awful Seahawks secondary. If you stream the bottom of your starting lineup, get Ward one week early and see what happens.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

TE Add

Gerald Everett, TE – LAR (Owned 48%)

Week 10: 2 Rec/27 yards

It has been another rough year for fantasy tight ends and as we get deeper into the season the options are dwindling. Still, Rams tight end Gerald Everett is available in over half of RSO leagues and presents the highest ceiling among available players. The Rams offense continues to be a high powered one and while their two tight ends, Everett and Tyler Higbee have not been as involved as last year, the two still play on a high number of offensive snaps and see their share of targets each. We saw last year how an injury to either tight end creates an uptick in usage for the other so this is another pre-emptive “what-if” add to potentially save a bidding war during the fantasy playoffs.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Sleeper Add

Jakeem Grant, WR – MIA (Owned 13%)

Week 10: 4 Rec/43 yards, 1 TD

The first week after Preston Williams was placed on the injured reserve, long time special teamer Jakeem Grant finally got his chance at playing full-time wide receiver. The 5’7” speedster, Grant played 76 percent of the Dolphins’ offensive snaps and scored his first offensive touchdown since week 3 of 2018. The Dolphins are quietly tenth in points for and their next three games are against the Broncos, Jets, and Bengals who have all been bottom-tier defenses. Grant presents a buy-low opportunity for zero-WR fantasy players while Preston Williams is sidelined.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
