Week 4 Street FA Report

Updated: September 26th 2023

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

Joshua Palmer, WR, LAC (Owned 64%)

Week 3: 4/Rec 66 yards, 1 TD

When the WR2 for a team that averages over 300 passing yards per game goes down for the season, his replacement easily becomes the AotW player. Joshua Palmer has easily out-snapped the rookie Quentin Johnston through three (3) weeks and until Johnston shows that he will be on the field more, Palmer should be the immediate fill-in for the Mike Williams role. The Chargers also do not appear to be in many low scoring/overwhelmingly favorited types of games so the passing attack should continue to be heavily involved most weeks. Palmer is a Plug-n-play WR4 until Johnston shows otherwise.

Suggested Bid: $5,000,000

RB Add

Trey Sermon, RB, IND (Owned 32%)

Week 3: 5 Car/17 yards, 1 Rec/4 yards

Will Jonathan Taylor be traded between now and the deadline? 50/50. Will Zach Moss be the bell-cow if Taylor is traded? After Week 2 some might have said yes but now, maybe not so fast. Trey Sermon was picked up off the street and played 1/5th of snaps, which does not sound like a lot but for a player to have when Moss carried the ball 30 times, but he likely knew nothing of the playbook and received six (6) touches immediately. Is Sermon a major threat to Moss, probably not, is he the next handcuff to grab a week or two (2) early off the waiver, probably.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

WR Add

Darius Slayton, WR, NYG (Owned 36%)

Week 3: 3 Rec/32 yards

The Giants are not a good offense but their current WR1 is available in two thirds of leagues which is surprising. Darius Slayton has played the highest snap count and seen the highest target share of any Giants wide receiver, Darren Waller has three (3) more targets as their TE1. We are only a few weeks away from the bye-week season so it is best to look ahead to any weeks that your lineups may be down a few receivers and start considering bench depth now.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

TE Add

Taysom Hill, TE?, NOS (Owned 42%)

Week 3: 4 Car/12 yards, 1 Rec/9 yards

If there was ever going to be a week where you started Taysom Hill in your tight end slot it would be the week that Saints’ starting quarterback is likely to be out. Hill is also the Saints’ leading rusher through three (3) weeks which means plenty of snaps for Hill to play all over the field with the additional under center opportunities. Some may call it a scam but like the “tush-push” if the NFL says it is legal, it is legal.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

Sleeper Add (<25%)

Brandon Johnson, WR, DEN (Owned 17%)

Week 3: 2 Rec/12 yards

The Broncos season could be over before it started and if they start planning ahead for the offseason, likely one of Courtland Sutton or Jerry Jeudy are not in their future. The coaching staff seems to be not ready to turn Marvin Mims into their primary third option for whatever reason at this time and instead has been leaning on second-year receiver Brandon Johnson. The Broncos are never going to be leaning on their running game and so passing opportunities will always be available week in and week out. If either/or of the primary options for Russell Wilson are traded before the deadline the target share can only go up for a player like Johnson.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
