Week 7 Street FA Report

Updated: October 18th 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

Kenyan Drake, RB, BAL (Owned 52%)

Week 6: 10 Car/119 yards, 1 TD, 1 Rec/8 yards

There will be much discussion this week about whether the AotW should be Deon Jackson or Kenyan Drake. The decision for me comes down to who is likely to continue to see meaningful snaps if their team’s starter is out. While Jackson may have chipped away at Nyheim Hines’ touch share there is little doubt that Jonathan Taylor, when healthy, will receive 80+ percent of the snaps and thus Jackson could be fools gold. As for Drake, JK Dobbins was coming into this season off of a serious knee injury and he left last week’s game with another knee-related illness. We have no clear indication on what timeframe the injury really has for Dobbins so Drake is more likely to receive starter level snap totals in Dobbins’ absence.

Suggested Bid: $3,500,000


RB Adds

D’Onta Foreman, RB, CAR (Owned 53%)

Week 6: 5 Car/19 yards

The other two (2) running back suggestions for week 7 are more of stashes based on your belief that a trade will happen involving those around these players thus allowing them the opportunity to increase their opportunity shares during the back half of the season. Christian McCaffrey has been rumored to be traded since February but there was not much meat on that bone until the Panthers fired Matt Rhule following week 5. If the Panthers do find a trade partner between now and Novemeber’s deadline we have seen over the last two (2) seasons that there likely will be a split between D’Onta Foreman and Chubba Hubbard. Foreman is the more likely candidate to be available in your free agent pool so he is the easier player to acquire.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

Mike Boone, RB, DEN (Owned 61%)

Week 6: 1 Car/1 yard, 1 Rec/3 yards

Just like Robbie Andrerson on Sunday, Melvin Gordon appeared visibly annoyed with his usage on Monday Night with new addition Latavius Murray receiving most of the snaps. Caught in the middle between the two is Mike Boone who, if Gordon was also traded or released, would see his third of a backfield increased to just a split with Murray. There is a chance that the Broncos would bring in another running back if they were to move Gordon, thus diminishing Boone’s actual ceiling. Between Foreman and Boone I would prioritize the former on your bidding.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

WR Add

Van Jefferson, WR, LAR (Owned 64%)

Week 6: N/A

If your league does not prioritize bench spots for players who are injured there may still be a chance that Van Jefferson is available in free agency. To your benefit the Rams are on a bye this upcoming week too which means that adding him will also be a low priority for many others allowing for a lower price tag. Jefferson is expected to return after the bye and the Rams appear to desperately need his help. Allen Robinson has not been the answer opposite Cooper Kupp and while I did recommend Ben Skowronek last week as a sleeper, Sean McVay has primarily used him as gadget player. Add Jefferson this week on the cheap before he potentially becomes more pricey after week 8.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

TE Add

Greg Dulcich, TE, DEN (Owned 49%)

Week 6: 2 Rec/44 yards, 1 TD

After it was announced that Greg Dulcich was coming off IR I thought it would be a savvy suggestion to those who stream tight end to add him after week 7 in the hopes that he looked good enough to have a future role. I did not expect him to have such a strong performance to a large Monday Night audience that instead of a sleeper, Dulcich likely will now cost you an above average bid to even have a chance to sign him. We do have to pump the brakes a little as he had only two (2) catches despite it feeling like he was more involved in the Broncos offense.

Suggested Bid: $4,000,000

Sleeper Add (<25%)

Braxton Berrios, WR, NYJ (17%)

Week 6: 1Car/20 yards, 1 TD, 1 Rec/6 yards

Has some of Braxton Berrios’ recent scoring totals been inflated by touchdowns, sure, but his consistency to find the end zone has been interesting to monitor since Zach Wilson’s return. He has scored a touchdown in the last three (3) games during which the Jets have been able to rattle off three (3) strong wins. His involvement in the offense can sometimes be sporadic as he operates at best as the third/fourth option, however, as we approach the heavy bye weeks it could be desperate times for some owners to dig deep for receiver help.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
