Week 8 Street FA Report

Updated: October 25th 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

Marquise Goodwin, WR, SEA (Owned 2%)

Week 7: 4 Rec/67 yards, 2 TD

Marquise Goodwin could honestly be a sleeper add as well as the AotW this week based on his ownership and overall expectation coming from the community thus far. With D.K. Metcalf out for most of last week’s game, Goodwin saw over 50 percent of the snaps and hauled in two (2) touchdowns. While my heart hopes that this presents an opportunity for my Dee Eskridge shares to finally have some use, I suspect Goodwin will continue to control much of the WR2 targets behind Tyler Lockett. The Seahawks have been in several shootouts already so there will continue to be opportunities for Goodwin to repeat performance like last week.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

RB Adds

JaMycal Hasty, RB, JAX (Owned 9%)

Week 7: 1 Car/6 yards

It was a bit surprising to see the Jets make a trade so quickly to cover the loss of Breece Hall when Michael Carter was available to take on the role. Regardless, with James Robinson now moving to New York, Travis Etienne is free to command the entire Jacksonville backfield. While he has slowly been building towards taking full control of the Jaguars’ backfield, there should be nothing preventing managers from also adding JaMycal Hasty just in case of injury. Hasty broke a long touchdown two weeks ago and is the de facto RB2 now behind Etienne. 

Suggested Bid: $500,000

WR Add

Amari Rodgers, WR, GB (Owned 43.5%)

Week 7: 2 Rec/14 yards

For a player who shares the same last name as his quarterback, Amari Rodgers seems to have done something to make Aaron ignore that he even exists on the roster. Aaron Rodgers may not have a choice this week though as Randall Cobb, Christian Watson and now possibly Allen Lazard may be out for week 8. That leaves Romeo Doubs and the ghost of Sammy Watkins as the only other two (2) receivers ahead of Amari Rodgers. In a game that expects Aaron Rodgers to throw a lot to keep up with Josh Allen this is probably Amari’s last chance to earn any significant role as the slot receiver this season.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

TE Add

Harrison Bryant, TE, CLE (Owned 24%)

Week 7: 2 Rec/15 yards

After having his breakout season (finally) David Njoku is now expected to miss about a month with his injury. The expectation is that Harrison Bryant will slide right into Njoku’s role and command most of the Browns’ significant tight end snaps in his absence. For now I would expect Bryant to show a similar TE2 floor as recent waiver tight ends such as Cade Otton and Greg Dulcich with Njoku out of the lineup.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

Sleeper Add (<25%)

Equanimeous St. Brown (Owned 9%)

Week 7: 4 Rec/48 yards

While the Bears’ season started out in 1985, averaging only 15 pass attempts over the first three (3) games they have since come back to 2022 in terms of expected pass attempts. It has also helped that Justin Fields has seemingly put it together over the last few weeks to the point that receiving options in this offense are actually back on the fantasy radar. Equanimeous St. Brown had four (4) receptions on Monday Night and looked the part of the WR2 in the offense for the first time. He is not reliable enough to start yet but at least having at the end of a deep roster is a safe stash in case Justin Fields continues to grow as a passer this season.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
