Week 7 Street FA Report

Updated: October 18th 2018

Each week we will recommend a group of players that are owned in less than 50% of RSO league that should be rostered. Depending on roster and league sizes not all of these players may be available.

Byes: Green Bay, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Seattle

Add of the Week

Terrelle Pryor, WR – NYJ (Owned 47.6%)

Week 6: 5 Rec/57 yards, 1 TD

Terrelle Pryor scored a touchdown for a second consecutive week and had his most targets (6) since week 2 against the Dolphins. More importantly, it appears Quincy Enunwa will be missing several weeks with an ankle injury. This gives Pryor the opportunity to step into the #2 role opposite Robby Anderson. The Jets’ offense has been a surprisingly useful bunch for fantasy players and if they can keep up their scoring efficiency, Pryor may become a strong mid-season add for what will be a heavy receiver bye week coming up.

Suggested Bid: $3,000,000 – $5,000,000

RB Add

Ito Smith, RB – ATL (Owned 46.5%)

Week 6: 11 Car/22 yards, 1 TD, 2 Rec/-1 yards

With Devonta Freeman going on IR it is time to fully embrace Ito Smith as more of a stable fantasy option for the second half of the season. Smith has a touchdown each of the last three weeks and will likely continue to get goal line work. Tevin Coleman is still the more appealing option in Atlanta’s backfield but now that Falcons are committing to putting Freeman on the shelf they may be more inclined to get Ito Smith involved in their weekly game plan. For someone who is free in nearly half of all leagues, Smith is an easy addition to any team.

Suggested Bid: $3,000,000 – $6,000,000

WR Add

Cole Beasley, WR – DAL (Owned 31%)

Week 6: 9 Rec/101 yards, 2 TDs

Eventually, if I recommend every Dallas player I should get one right, right? The anemic Cowboys somehow hung 40 points on one of the best defenses in football and it was Cole Beasley who racked up huge fantasy points scoring two touchdowns and going over 100 yards. Beasley saw 11 targets after having only 16 in the previous four weeks. Run the ball with Zeke and work over the middle with the shifty Beasley seems like a simple enough game plan. Maybe this will kick start Scott Linehan to use his slot receiver more often. Couldn’t hurt right?

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

Josh Reynolds, WR – LA (Owned 26%)

Week 6: 1 Rec/-2 yards

It will be tough for Cooper Kupp owners to replace his week-to-week value after it was announced that he is going to miss several weeks with a knee injury. In his absence though second-year receiver Josh Reynolds should be the main beneficiary. There was a lot of hype during the draft last season that saw Reynolds as a mid-3rd round target. However, being buried on the depth chart hasn’t left much room for him to showcase his talents just yet. With how high scoring the Rams’ offense has been this season Reynolds moving up to the WR3 spot this should give an indication of whether or not he can be a fantasy viable asset.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000 or 3rd round pick

TE Add

C.J. Uzomah, TE – CIN (Owned 38%)

Week 6: 6 Rec/57 yards

A lot of fantasy points to go around in week 6 for the Bengals which means that C.J. Uzomah is looking like a rosterable TE. He was Cincinnati’s only targeted tight end with 7 targets last week which was also good for third on the team behind A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd. Andy Dalton has always liked having Tyler Eifert as a safety option and it seems that Uzomah will be the primary receiving tight end moving forward. He will be a matchup-based play each week but he is definitely worth an add if you are rotating your starting TE week-to-week.

Suggested Bid: $2,000,000 – $3,000,000
