Week 12 Street FA Report

Updated: November 24th 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

Dez Bryant, WR – BAL (Owned 18%)

Week 11: 4 Rec/28 yards

Most jumped the gun with claiming Dez Bryant when he first signed with Ravens and spent a couple of weeks on their practice squad. The shine wore off and now is the time to get him onto your rosters heading into the playoffs. Bryant played on over half the snaps in week 11 (54%) and also had four (4) receptions to lead all Ravens receivers. Marquise Brown and Lamar Jackson have not been able to get on the same page this season and if the Ravens are going to make a run this season they are going to need more than Willie Snead in the passing game. Even if Dez can just be a possession receiver that can move the chains and take the pressure off of Mark Andrews in the red zone that could be enough to jump-start this stagnant offense. Think Antonio Brown in Tampa scaled down.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

RB Add

Justice Hill, RB – BAL (Owned 44%)

Week 11: N/A

Gus Edwards should see the bulk of the carries on Thursday but without Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins, the Ravens will work in Justice Hill as their secondary runner. Hill has not done much during his first two seasons but due to positional scarcity and the amount the Ravens want to run the ball, Hill should see close to a dozen touches in week 12. If you need a one to two-week fix, Hill could be a high-risk flex.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

WR Add

Breshad Perriman, WR – NYJ (Owned 53%)

Week 11: 2 Rec/54 yards, 1 TD

Breshad Perriman has transformed into a boom-or-bust touchdown receiver each week with Joe Flacco as the two have connected on three touchdowns in the last two games and Perriman has scored at least 10 PPR points in three (3) of his six (6) games played. The Jets will continue to be playing from behind as well so there will be plenty of passing opportunities to go around. It remains to be seen if Perriman’s success would continue if Sam Darnold returned to the lineup but for now, he has the same value as DeSean Jackson had in his final year’s in Tampa Bay, a WR4 with WR2 boom value.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

TE Add

Jordan Akins, TE – HOU (Owned 26%)

Week 11: 5 Rec/83 yards

In a similar way to suggesting Justice Hill because of the missing pieces around him, the Houston Texans saw both Randy Cobb and Kenny Stills go down in week 11 due to injury and in their absence Jordan Akins caught five (5) passes and a career-high 83 yards on Sunday. Cobb is likely heading to the injured reserve list and with the Texans playing on Thanksgiving that does not give a lot of time for Stills to recover from his hamstring injury. What’s more, is that they have a plus matchup against a poor Lions defense so points and red zone opportunities could be plentiful. Akins is streamer’s dream for week 12.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Sleeper Add

Keke Coutee, WR – HOU (Owned 24%)

Week 11: 2 Rec/10 yards, 1 TD

I will double down on Randall Cobb and Kenny Still being unavailable for Thursday’s game by saying that Keke Coutee could play a significant number of snaps in the slot this week. A player many thought could be a PPR slot machine like Randall Cobb was in Green Bay, Coutee never accomplished much after his debut game in week 4 of 2018 where he had 11 catches for 109 yards. A healthy scratch for much of this season, it happens every Thanksgiving where a player comes out of nowhere to have one memorable performance. If you want to spice up your holiday meal, reach for Coutee in deeper leagues and see what happens.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
