Week 11 Street FA Report

Updated: November 18th 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

Jay Ajayi, RB – PHI (Owned 46.5%)

Week 10: N/A

Weeks after it was being reported that Jay Ajayi is ready to return to football after tearing his ACL last season he has finally found a home with a familiar team. The Eagles announced that Darren Sproles is done for the season and Jordan Howard is nursing his own injury so it made sense that the team brings in a veteran that both knows the offensive playbook and has shown success in recent times. Ajayi is unlikely to make a big impact immediately unless an unforeseen injury to rookie Miles Sanders forced him to be, so it will be cautious optimism at this point to add him to your roster. Still, any running back that could have potential goal-line opportunities is worth the roster spot for the stretch run of the season.

Suggested Bid: $3,000,000

RB Add

Jalen Richard, RB – OAK (Owned 37%)

Week 10: 2 Car/0 yards, 4 Rec/43 yards

Whether it has been game script or Josh Jacobs’ injury, Jalen Richard has been an under the radar option in PPR leagues for RBs during these past two heavy bye weeks. Used primary in a Darren Sproles-esk capacity, Richard has had 10 and 8 points the last two weeks on the back of seven (7) receptions and just less than 100 yards receiving. He will not be stealing many carries away from Jacobs, never having more than four (4) carries in a game, but his receiving ability does give him upside in spreads that don’t favor the Raiders moving forward. Deep leagues that are in a pinch for running back help can look to Richard as an alternative option to the Ajayi sweepstakes.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

WR Add

Josh Reynolds, WR – LAR (Owned 39%)

Week 10: 3 Rec/49 yards

It appears that Brandin Cooks will be out again for week 11 and his status for future weeks with his concussion are up in the air. Meanwhile, Josh Reynolds stepped in last week as he did with Cooper Kupp’s injury last season as the team’s WR3 and had a so-so performance. He was, however, the second most targeted receiver (5) on the team. He’s not a flashy play like Brandin Cooks but looking at the raw numbers Reynolds produced about the same fantasy production as Cooks was before his injury. With the Rams not beating down on teams anymore and games against Baltimore, Seattle, Dallas and San Francisco remaining on the schedule, game scripted passing opportunities are going to be there for Reynolds and other Jared Goff targets.

Suggested Bid: $2,000,000

TE Add

Ryan Griffin, TE – NYJ (Owned 27%)

Week 10: 1 Rec/-2 yards

I know I recommended Griffin last week and he did absolutely nothing against the Giants but my prediction of Chris Herndon reinjuring himself came true so now Griffin is once again the clear TE1 for the Jets.  He’s not a stud option at the position but opportunities and red zone possessions are the name of the game for streaming tight ends and without another real threat to his snaps that’s all fantasy players can ask for. An upcoming schedule of Washington, Oakland, Cincinnati, and Miami should allow the Jets to have plenty of scoring and red zone opportunities for Griffin to grab a touchdown or two and hopefully he can gain some yardage between the 20’s as well. If there are upcoming weeks that you don’t like your starting tight end’s matchup Griffin is another option to bring off the bench to pinch-hit.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

 Sleeper Add (<10%)

Chester Rogers, WR – IND (Owned 9%)

Week 10: 2 Rec/31 yards

T.Y. Hilton and Parris Campbell have already been ruled out but Jacoby Brissett looks to be returning for Week 11’s game against the Jaguars. That is an upgrade at the quarterback throwing the ball and the removal of potential target obstacles for Chester Rogers. As it stands only Zach Pascal is ahead of Rogers on the depth chart for wideouts but we know Eric Ebron and Jack Doyle will also be involved from the tight end position. Still, teams truly desperate for a WR4/5 this week could hope that Rogers gets around five or six targets and gets over 50 yards receiving. It could also be another week or two before Hilton returns so one could roll the dice again next week against Houston if needed.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
