Week 7 Street FA Report

Updated: October 20th 2020

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

Boston Scott, RB – PHI (Owned 62%)

Week 6: 2 Car/4 yards, 2 Rec/5 yards

There was a big scare in the Eagles-Ravens game for Miles Sanders when he went down with an injury to his knee. Luckily for him, it does not appear to be a serious injury but he will be out for at least a couple of weeks. In his place, the team will once again turn to Boston Scott who in his two games against the Giants last year scored 24.8 and 35.8 PPR points. With only Corey Clement behind him as a running back with at least ten (10) snaps played thus far it is safe to assume that Scott should see the majority of touches and snaps out of the backfield on Thursday night. Scott presents RB3/Flex appeal over the next two weeks before the Eagles’ bye. His value can be reassessed in week 10 once the extent of Sanders’ injury is more known.

Suggested Bid: $2,000,000

RB Add

Gus Edwards, RB – BAL (Owned 37%)

Week 6: 14 Car/26 yards, 1 TD

We will have to wait a week to find out how serious Mark Ingram’s injury is that forced him to leave early from the Ravens’ Week 6 game before we go full with Gus Edwards. Until then Edwards looks like another running back that could be in line for an increase in snaps and rushing attempts and therefore should be rostered in more than a third of RSO leagues. Edwards has led the Ravens’ backfield in snaps the last three weeks and carries in two of the last three so even if Ingram does return after their bye he will continue to have a bigger role than most see in this offense. We all hope that J.K. Dobbins takes over this backfield with the current situation but sometimes we should not look a gift horse in the mouth and pick up the free option right now.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

 WR Add

Adam Humphries, WR – TEN (Owned 36%)

Week 6: 6 Rec/64 yards, 1 TD

Those who rostered Adam Humphries have had to wait a long time for him to be available after the team missed a week for COVID delays and then Humphries needed to miss an additional game until he could test negative. On Sunday he returned and had his best statistical performance of the season finishing as the WR12. Corey Davis missing the game was likely a contributing factor for his success but Humphries has only one (1) game thus far with under 10 PPR points and is WR36 for points per game averaging a respectable 13.2 PPR. For those either streaming wide receiver or who need to add depth he is a better bench player and potential weekly starter than many other options around his ownership levels. The Titans offense is legit and it should continue to fuel fantasy points for players other than Derrick Henry and A.J. Brown.

Suggested Bid: $3,000,000

TE Add

Anthony Firkser, TE – TEN (4%)

Week 6: 8 Rec/113 yards, 1 TD

It must have been disappointing to those who have Jonnu Smith to have him have a single catch in week 6 before going down with an ankle injury and to then watch Anthony Firkser come in as his replacement and put up over 25 points. Smith is expected to miss at least the Titans next game while dealing with his injury and it could take a couple of games until he is fully back to even strength as ankles are a fickle injury to heal for big tight ends. As I mentioned for Adam Humphries, the Titans’ offense is strong enough that it can hold up multiple pass-catchers in fantasy and the team will be frequenting the red zone for touchdown opportunities. He may not have more than a couple of weeks of value but if Firkser can help you steal a win between now and then it is worth it.

Suggested Bid: $1,500,000

 Sleeper Add

Marcus Johnson, WR – IND (Owned 2%)

Week 6: 5 Rec/108 yards

Slowly, Marcus Johnson has been gaining steam as a deep threat for the Indianapolis Colts. Two weeks ago he had a 36-yard catch while playing on over half the snaps. Then this week he had over 100 yards, half on a big 55-yard pass from Philip Rivers while playing on almost two-thirds (63 percent) of the snaps and being the most targeted receiver with eight (8). The Colts currently are tied for eighth (8th) in three (3) receiver sets at 71 percent so there should be plenty of opportunities for Johnson to continue being on the field.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000
