Week 4 Street FA Report

Updated: September 27th 2022

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

Zay Jones, WR, JAX (Owned 33%)

Week 3: 10 Rec/85 yards, 1 TD

Is Jacksonville good now? A thorough beating of Super Bowl contending LA Chargers may suggest that simply adding by subtracting Urban Meyer really has the Jaguars trending more towards where we hoped year two of the Trevor Lawrence experience would be. As Lawrence’s tide raises all ships, so too should Jay Jones’ ownership be much higher than one-third of leagues. Jones is averaging eight (8) targets and six (6) catches per game thus far and is tied for WR24 in PPR scoring. Simply put, Jones is putting up consistent WR2 production with a WR3 floor and he should not only be rostered but also started in most leagues going forward.

Suggested Bid: $5,000,000 – $8,000,000


RB Adds

Samaje Perine, RB, CIN (Owned 39%)

Week 3: 9 Car/47 yards, 2 Rec/14 yards, 1 TD

Every week a starting running back gets nicked up and then the questions about their availability and usage swirls for a couple weeks following. In week 3 Joe Mixon missed time with an ankle injury and the Bengals have a short week to turn around for Thursday Night Football. Mixon is expected to be “okay” but it’s always a smart plan to add the injured running backs’ backup a week early just in case. Samaje Perine has been the clear #2 behind Mixon and would see a full workload in his absence. Watch the news regarding Mixon this week.

Suggested Bid: $500,000


WR Add

Josh Reynolds, WR, DET (Owned 15%)

Week 3: 6 Rec/96 yards

Every year I seem to find at least one week where I am allowed to recommend my favorite underdog wide receiver, Josh Reynolds. With Amon-Ra St. Brown coming on the scene last year and the Lions signing DJ Chark, I was not sure if the streak would continue. But Reynolds saw additional action last week due to St. Brown’s injury and made the most of it with six (6) receptions. St. Brown’s injury is not expected to be long but his immediate status is in question which leaves a window of a few weeks that Reynolds could be a low-ranking flex play. The Lions are surprisingly one of the most consistent scoring offenses in the league so both targets and scoring opportunities are readily available for Reynolds if called upon.

Suggested Bid: $500,000


TE Add

Daniel Bellinger, TE, NYG (Owned 26.5%)

Week 3: 4 Rec/40 yards

I love the prospect of Jelani Woods but do not chase the tight end who scores two (2) touchdowns on just 16 snaps. Instead, look to add Daniel Bellinger who continued to look good in the first month of his rookie campaign and who saw five (5) targets on Monday Night Football. The other Giants’ tight ends are being used sparingly through the first three (3) games and even less in the passing game. With Sterling Shepard out for the season will the coaching staff move more to include Kenny Golladay in the 3WR sets they have been running or will they look to use more I-Formation giving Bellinger more route participation? Based on Golladay’s usage over the first three (3) weeks I would think that Bellinger, or our sleeper add, have a better shot at seeing an increase in targets than Golladay.

Suggested Bid: $500,000


Sleeper Add (<25%)

Richie James, WR, NYG (Owned 18%)

Week 3: 4 Rec/36 yards

Sterling Shepard went down on the last play of the game with a freak knee injury that has been confirmed as season-ending. In his absence the expected new WR1 in New York might just be Richie James who has been a surprise thus far in terms of his production. James has far and away been the second most targeted receiver behind Shepard so his production floor should increase from this point on. The Giants are still a limited offense so there are many WR2s in other offenses I would prioritize over James but any team’s first option at receiver needs to be rostered in more than 20 percent of leagues. James will have several spot starts in the flex as we head into bye weeks this season.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
