Week 5 Street FA Report

Updated: October 5th 2021

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

Khalil Herbert, RB –CHI (Owned 41%)

Week 4: 3 Car/7 yards

A sixth-round rookie from Virginia Tech, Khalil Herbert was a deep stash for fantasy players as David Montgomery had a firm grip on the backfield touches over the first month of the season. Montgomery, however, has suffered a knee sprain that will keep him out till at least November and with veteran Damien Williams also nursing his own injury Herbert has the opportunity to showcase his talents earlier than some may have expected. A north-south, one-cut runner, Herbert has the chance to produce similarly to Montgomery and to try and justify his role going forward the rest of the season if he passes the audition this month.

Suggested Bid: $2,000,000

RB Add

Kyle Juszczyk, RB – SF (Owned 10%)

Week 4: 4 Rec/41 yards

The Street FA Report has been absent of a fullback submission since Week 6 of the 2018 season but once again Kyle Juszczyk is showing deep value at the RB position. With all the injuries the 49ers have suffered to start the season, Juszczyk has become one of the more frequently targeted backfield options over the last two (2) weeks. If Jimmy Garappolo is replaced by rookie Trey Lance this week, expect more opportunities for dump-offs and screens to help keep the defense off the young quarterback. Kyle Shanahan trusts the veteran and could be a Hail Mary option for those suffering at the position already.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

WR Add

Kalif Raymond, WR – DET (Owned 10%)

Week 4: 3 Rec/46 yards, 2 TD

Journeyman receiver Kalif Raymond is quietly putting on his best season thus far as he has already passed his previous best season totals in targets (22), receptions (14), and touchdowns (2). Raymond has played the most snaps of any Lions’ receiver as well showing that he is a primary option in this offense. It is unlikely that he can replicate his two (2) touchdown performance from last week but if he can continue to hover around his 11 PPR/G he could be a solid WR3/4 the rest of the season.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

TE Add

Dan Arnold, TE – JAX (Owned 25%)

Week 4: 2 Rec/29 yards

Dan Arnold was traded at the beginning of week 4 to Jacksonville and played the second-most snaps and led Jacksonville tight ends in targets on only two (2) days of prep. The Jaguars do not have another receiving option at the position, hence the reason they traded for him, so it should be expected that they have a plan for him. With the injury to D.J. Chark also opening up more targets from this point on, there is a chance that Arnold can be a streaming tight end option moving forward.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Sleeper Add (<25%)

Brandon Bolden, RB – NE (Owned 9%)

Week 4: 1 Car/0 yards, 6 Rec/51 yards

Scratch what I said last week about JJ Taylor becoming the new James White. Taylor only played on four (4) snaps on Sunday night and had a crucial fumble that cost the Patriots an opportunity to upset the Buccaneers. He is likely on the bench for the time being which leaves special team’s ace Brandon Bolden as the pass-catching backfield option in New England. Bolden has now led the Patriots backfield in targets the last two (2) weeks which bodes well for his PPR value. Expect more consistency to sustain drives against Houston this week making Bolden a high upside RB3.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
