Week 6 Street FA Report

Updated: October 10th 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

Emari Demercado, RB, ARZ (Owned 9%)

Week 4: 10 Car/45 yards, 1 TD, 1 Rec/12 yards

There are three (3) big IR designations heading into Week 6 and all of the players who are expected to see increased production because of it are some of our recommendations this week. Emari Demercado came out of nowhere as the fill-in for Keaontay Ingram as Arizona’s RB2 but once James Conner also went down with his injury it was all Demercado for the second half. He finished as the RB18 for Week 5 and Connor will be out at least the next month and Ingram’s own status for Week 6 is still up in the air. Both Demercado and Ingram should be added this week but if you need immediate RB help this week Demercado is likely your higher priority. 

Suggested Bid: ($2,000,000)

RB Add

D’Onta Foreman, RB, CHI (Owned 64%)

Week 4: N/A

Similar to the Arizona backfield situation, Chicago was decimated all at once on Thursday night with not only their starter Khalil Herbert, but also their backup Roschon Johnson and special teams option Travis Homer all exiting the game. Johnson, at least for now, projects to be the starter if he can clear the concussion protocol before Sunday but his availability at practice and for the game opens up the door for D’Onta Foreman who was a healthy scratch the last two (2) games to potentially see a role in the Bears’ gameplan. He is likely already owned in your league but if not add Foreman as an insurance policy for the end of the week. 

Suggested Bid: $500,000

WR Add

K.J. Osborn, WR, MIN (Owned 55%)

Week 4: 5 Rec/49 yards

Some may have been frustrated with K.J. Osborn’s up-and-down production over the first month and already moved on to other options at wide receiver. If that is the case, with the news of Justin Jefferson’s injury and subsequent trip to the IR, both Osborn and rookie Jordan Addison will see a massive increase in their usage over the next month. There is also the outside, and honestly low probability, that Jefferson does not return this season, either due to injury/contract concerns or his trade to another roster. If that were the case, Osborn’s availability as a viable fantasy asset goes from a few weeks to a major contributor the rest of the seasons.

Suggested Bid: $2,000,000

TE Add

Logan Thomas, TE, WAS (Owned 40%)

Week 4: 9 Rec/77 yards, 1 TD

It seems like forever ago that Logan Thomas was on the receiving end of 72 receptions and 6 touchdowns in 2020 but he has finally bounced back from his 2021 injury to return to a fringe TE1 start each week. He currently sits as the TE12 is PPR tied for 15th in targets and 12th in receptions. The Commanders have been up and down as an offense this season but Sam Howell is currently 4th in pass attempts which continues to provide Thomas with plenty of opportunities to see the ball. Washington has also attempted the 6th most passes inside the 10 yard line, which is a tight end’s dream. Streaming tight end is always a hair-pulling experience to make the right decision but at 60 percent availability Logan Thomas should be part of each streamer’s rotation.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

Sleeper Add (<25%)

Craig Reynolds, RB, DET (Owned 11%)

Week 4: 7 Car/52 yards, 1 TD

All of Craig Reynolds’ success came in garbage time, I get it, but this did give a clear vision from a usage standpoint of where the Lions sit with their backfield. When David Montgomery missed part of the second half in Week 2 the staff did not immediately hand Jahmyr Gibbs the full workload, instead using Reynolds in the traditional “thumper” role and continued to use Gibbs as a chance of pace option. Reynolds is the clear RB3 and does not hold much value as a stand alone but with injuries to Montgomery and Gibbs in just the first month there may be more spot start opportunities for Reynolds during the rest of the season.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
