Week 5 Street FA Report

Updated: October 4th 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

Michael Wilson, WR, ARZ (Owned 59%)

Week 4: 7 Rec/76 yards, 2 TDs

One (1) month into the 2023 season and already we have had two (2) players move from the “Positional Adds” to the must Add of the Week slot. Hopefully, those who have been following this year have been successful in adding these players before their FAAB blow up week. Anyways, after some under the radar performances in weeks 1 through 3, Michael Wilson finally had his rookie campaign’s breakout game scoring two (2) touchdowns against an elite 49ers defense. Wilson is the Cardinals only big receiver when compared to Marquise Brown and Rondale Moore so the opportunities to score red-zone touchdowns will continue to be there as well. Will Wilson be the weekly WR6 again this season, probably not, but a WR3/4 most weeks? Probably.

Suggested Bid: $3,500,000

RB Add

Jaleel McLaughlin, RB, DEN (Owned 27%)

Week 4: 7 Car/72 yards, 3 Rec/32 yards, 1 TD

Denver’s week 4 game started off with another vulture touchdown by McLaughlin and ended with a “I should probably pick this guys up” type of performance once Javonte Williams left the game with a hip injury. The reports on the severity of Williams’ injuries have been all over the map; some believing he could be back right away and others saying to expect he will miss 2-3 weeks and it will linger for the rest of the season. In any case, once Williams went out it was clear between Samaje Perine and McLaughlin who appeared to be the back that helped his team the most. Any amount of time that Williams is out McLaughlin is a RB3/Flex play.

Suggested Bid: $1,500,000

WR Add

Terrace Marshall Jr, WR, CAR (Owned 58%)

Week 4: 9 Rec/56 yards

Averaging nine (9) targets and seven (7) receptions the last two (2) weeks, Terrace Marshall has started to finally show results for those who have held onto him into his third season. The Panthers as a team have been awful which has helped both Marshall and Adam Thielen thrive in the targets department thus far. They also have matchups that could become shootouts, or in the Miami case long periods of garbage time over the next month, so there will continue to be plenty of opportunities to see large amounts of targets. The Panthers have been rumored to be looking for another receiver on the trade market but unless they secure a superstar I doubt it has a large effect on Marshall weekly expectations.

Suggested Bid: $1,500,000

TE Add

Tyler Conklin, TE, NYJ (Owned 26%)

Week 4: 4 Rec/58 yards

Find a person that loves you as much as Zach Wilson loves throwing to Tyler Conklin. Since taking over officially four (4) snaps into the season only Garrett Wilson has had more targets and receptions than Conklin. As well for the first time all year the Jets finally looked like they could sustain drives on Sunday night. Whether that momentum continues into the subsequent weeks may be a betting fallacy but at least we know that Conklin will be involved thick or thin. Sometimes it just feels nice to not take a doughnut at your starting tight end spot and Conklin can help with that.

Suggested Bid: $500,000


Sleeper Add (<25%)

Braxton Berrios, WR, MIA (Owned 12%)

Week 4: 1 Car/11 yards, 6 Rec/43 yards, 1 TD

Even when the Dolphins are not scoring 70 points in a game the offense still has enough scoring power to feed several mouths in a given week. With the slow start to Jaylen Waddle’s season, Braxton Berrios has emerged as the Dolphins clear WR3 receiving 11 targets thus far. If you like holding players on offenses that score lots of points Berrios could be a WR5 option through the lean bye weeks at wide receiver.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
