Week 6 Street FA Report

Updated: October 11th 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

Khalil Shakir, WR, BUF (Owned 54%)

Week 5: 3 Rec/75 yards, 1 TD

Khalil Skakir took full advantage of both Jamison Crowder and Isaiah McKenzie being inactive last week by scoring his first career touchdown while playing on 70 percent of the Bills’ offensive snaps. A late round selection in many rookie drafts this season, many managers were hoping that Shakir could develop into a solid slot option in a high-powered offense. Once McKenzie and Crowder are healthy there will be discussion on whether Shakir returns to the bench or if the rookie has done enough to warrant more playing time for this coaching staff. If you do not have a re-sign candidate this season consider adding Shakir and re-signing him for a likely near minimum extension.

Suggested Bid: $500,000


RB Add

Tevin Coleman, RB, SF (Owned 6%)

Week 5: 8 Car/23 yards, 1 TD, 3 Rec/44 yards, 1 TD

Off the streets and into the endzone, Tevin Coleman rejoined the San Francisco 49ers and had an immediate impact. He only played on 19 snaps but recorded 11 touches and scored twice. Jeff Wilson and Deebo Samuel still held the majority of backfield snaps but the 49ers are always trying to platoon running backs to help keep them healthy and available. It may only be for a few weeks while Elijah Mitchell continues to be out but in the case of the upcoming bye weeks Tevin Coleman could be a spot start RB3/4 over the next month.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000


WR Add

Randall Cobb, WR, GB (Owned 17.5%)

Week 5: 7 Rec/99 yards

The rookies Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs have not seized the trust of Aaron Rodgers like many thought might happen. While Doubs has had his games it has primarily been Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb who Rodgers is targeting in big moments. The Packers are also not overwhelming teams with their offense right now which has led to them continuing to pass more. It will likely continue for much of this season that Cobb operates as the primary slot option and has big target games like he did last week.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000


TE Add

Cade Otton, TE, TB (Owned 25%)

Week 5: 6 Rec/43 yards

Anyone who had to spot start Cade Otton last week was blissfully surprised when he finished third in targets for the Bucs in week 5 with seven (7) and played on 94 percent (!) of the offensive snaps which was most among all skill position players. His increased usage was due to Cameron Brate being inactive with a concussion but Otton was seeing about 50 percent of the snaps before Brate’s injury. We know two (2) things about Tom Brady: if he trusts you he is throwing to you and he likes using his tight ends. If week 5 was enough for Tom Brady to say Otton is the option he wants on the field going forward you can bet that he will continue to see strong usage.

Suggested Bid: $500,000


Sleeper Add (<25%)

Ben Skowronek, WR< LAR (Owned14%)

Week 5: 6 Rec/41 yards

Ben Skowronek has quietly been playing a west-coast version of Taysom Hill by lining up all over the field to help the Rams wherever needed. He has yet to register a carry, likely because Sean McVay is trying to be more conventional with Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson, but Skowronek has proven that he will be the third option behind Cooper Kupp and Tyler Higbee in the passing game. Allen Robinson is not what people thought he was going to be and Odell Beckham may not come into the window until after the fantasy regular season is over. Skowronek will not likely have a boom WR1 week but during the byes he likely has a higher floor each week than other receivers around his ownership levels.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
