Week 13 Street FA Report

Updated: December 3rd 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

Keke Coutee, WR – HOU (Owned 27%)

Week 12: 2 Rec/13 yards

Will Fuller gave us a great exit performance as he finishes his 2020 season on a 35 point PPR performance on Thanksgiving before now being suspended on Monday for PEDs. Last week I half-jokingly suggested adding Keke Coutee as the weekly sleeper if you were desperate but taking that advice may have saved you a huge cap difference a week later. With three of the receivers ahead of him on the depth chart now gone (Fuller, Randall Cobb, and Kenny Stills), Coutee immediately steps into the WR2 role for Houston. A victim of injuries, if Coutee can stay healthy for the four (4) games left this fantasy season he could be a WR3/4 for playoff teams to stash.

Suggested Bid: $4,000,000

RB Add

Ito Smith, RB – ATL (Owned 32%)

Week 12: 12 Car/65 yards, 1 TD, 4 Rec/10 yards

With Todd Gurley out and a good matchup for running backs against the Raiders’ defense, fantasy managers rolled the dice on starting Brian Hill. They were burned on that play as it was Ito Smith who had the better stat line due to scoring the late touchdown, as well as being the only Falcons’ running back to catch a pass. Gurley may or may not be back this week but it is already well documented the knee concerns he has. As we head deeper into a season if Gurley misses any more time Smith could be in line for another flex-start situation for the deeper leagues. If you are the Gurley owner going into the playoffs, handcuffing with Ito Smith may be better protection than holding deadweight on your bench.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

TE Add

Jacob Hollister, TE – SEA (Owned 11%)

Week 12: 2 Rec/11 yards

Greg Olsen went down in week 11 with what looked like a (regular) season-ending injury and in week 12 only Jacob Hollister had a target from the Seattle tight end group suggesting that he should be their pass-catching option moving forward. The tight end position has been brutal outside of the top few players in fantasy so any level of production or a fluke touchdown can go a long way to a top 5 scoring week. The Seahawks have been hyper-efficient at red zone scoring and while it looks like their running game is returning to its usual usage, goal-line scoring opportunities are always a bonus for tight ends in fantasy.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Sleeper Add

Collin Johnson, WR – JAX (Owned 8%)

Week 12: 4 Rec/96 yards, 1 TD

With D.J. Chark and Chris Conley out backup quarterback Mike Glennon leaned on rookie receiver Collin Johnson with the most targets (8) in week 12 for the Jaguars. Whether it was chemistry built by working on the second team or Johnson’s massive 6’6” frame, he and Glennon seemed to have a connection. The rookie also showed some burst on a long, 46-yard touchdown showing that he is not just a possession receiver. Glennon gets the start again in week 13 and Johnson could get more snaps depending on the health of Chark and Conley. Stash Collin Johnson in the case of last week’s performance being more than just a one-game flash.
