Week 5 Street FA Report

Updated: October 4th 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

Latavius Murray, RB, DEN (8%)

Week 4: 11 Car/57 yards, 1 TD, 1 Rec/8 yards

It is not very often that a player becomes a must add, mid-season, after switching teams. However, with the Broncos quickly jumping to sign Latavius Murray hours after the announcement of Javonte Williams’ injury it should be expected that he will play right away and could be the long awaited “season winner” from the free agent pool. The new coaching staff favored journeyman Mike Boone over Melvin Gordon in the second half last week’s game due to Gordon’s fumbling issues so it should be reasonable to expect that Murray, after a few weeks could be the primary ball carrier once he is comfortable with the verbiage.

Suggested Bid:$7,000,000-$10,000,000 or 70-90% of remaining cap

RB Add

Caleb Huntley, RB, ATL (<1%)

Week 4: 10 Car/56 yards, 1 TD

The Falcons have a brutal upcoming week for expected running game production which is why I will likely be more bearish on expectations than some will be when picking up Caleb Huntley. We will see how the backfield splits work out when more passing is required as the Falcons only needed to attempt 19 passes against a beaten down Browns’ defensive line in week 4. Huntley shared equal carries with Tyler Allgeier (10) after Cordarrelle Patterson left with an injury but half the snap shares (24:12). 

Suggested Bid:$1,000,000

WR Add

Olamide Zaccheaus, WR, ATL (Owned 10%)

Week 4: 2 Rec/55 yards

As mentioned with Huntley, the Falcons did not have to pass much last week but throughout the first month of the season Olamide Zaccheaus has been operating solely as the WR2 in Atlanta. He is mostly a boom-or-bust big play option averaging only 2+ targets per game but he has caught 100 percent of his targets and is averaging 17.4 yards/reception. Some weeks we have to start a Hail Mary WR5 and hope they do not zero out. Zaccheaus will keep the doughnut off the scoresheet.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

TE Add

Mo Alie-Cox, TE, IND (Owned 22%)

Week 4: 6 Rec/85 yards, 2 TDs

I assume there must have been a mass exodus of Mo Alie-Cox ownership in the previous weeks as I did not expect him to qualify for this article at any point this season. At a position that feels like it is all or nothing, Alie-Cox has played over the majority of snaps for the Colts all four (4) weeks but this was his first week of real production. Is it safe to start him each week, probably not unless your current tight end options are somehow even worse, but he should be held on the backend of rosters with an ownership closer to 50:50 and used in spot starts. 

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Sleeper Add (<25%)

Trent Sherfield, WR, MIA (Owned 1%)

Week 4: 4 Rec/55 yards

A lot is up in the air about Tua Tagovailoa’s health and his availability to play after already being ruled out for week 5. The offense sputtered out on Thursday Night once he left but we will have to see how much of that was due to the change in rhythm with Teddy Bridgewater. In either case, Trent Sherfield appears to be taking on much of the WR3 role through the first four (4) weeks and would be in line for a production upgrade in the case of either Tyreek Hill or Jaylen Waddle missing time. As it stands he is a fringe roster player in deeper leagues.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
