Week 9 Street FA Report

Updated: November 4th 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

Darnell Mooney, WR – CHI (Owned 36.5%)

Week 8: 5 Rec/69 yards, 1 TD

Darnell Mooney was the “Sleeper Add” in Week 3 and while his ownership has gone up since then it should be much higher than at one-third of RSO leagues. The community has a Mandela Effect towards Anthony Miller, believing that he is the WR2 in Chicago, but it simply is not true. In fact, Mooney has out-snapped Miller in every game but week 1 thus far. He is has been a consistent WR4 this season and while the limited Bears offense likely prevents him from having any WR1 performances he is capable of WR2 games like he did last week. Stash depth for the playoffs. We never know who the next player to go down will be.

Suggested Bid: $2,000,000

RB Add

Dexter Williams, RB – GB (Owned 8%)

Week 8: N/A

This suggestion is pure speculation based on if or if not Aaron Jones is healthy enough to play on Thursday night. If Jones does not play or only receives limited reps in the short week of practice, Dexter Williams could have a one-time use in 2020. Williams has not played a snap thus far and while Tyler Ervin seems to be ahead of him on the depth chart, Ervin has primarily been used as a gadget option to compliment the other running backs when on the field. It would be the ultimate Hail Mary to start Williams but if your back is up against the wall with the Bengals, Rams, Eagles, and Browns on their byes he is likely the only free option that could potentially get RB2-type production.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

WR Add

Quintez Cephus, WR – DET (Owned 32%)

Week 8: N/A

Kenny Golladay is going to be missing games once again this season which means that Quintez Cephus could be reactivated. The rookie receiver surprised many when he was targeted ten (10) times on opening weekend with Golladay sidelined leading to yours truly suggesting to add him. Unfortunately, he had been inactive since Week 2 dampening his value. Based on bringing in veterans like Mohamed Sanu for a workout it would suggest that Golladay’s hip injury could sideline him longer than his two-game injury to start the season. Hopefully, a month of development will do good for Cephus in his second stint and he can carve out a role for the second half of the season.

Suggested Bid: $500,000

TE Add

Jordan Reed, TE – SF (Owned 16%)

Week 8: N/A

The short team play at tight end for the 49ers would be to add Ross Dwelley for Thursday Night Football but Jordan Reed, in George Kittle’s two-game absence, looked like he would be the primary receiving tight end that fantasy players would want to target long term. He of course is coming off his own injury and is not guaranteed to play in week 9 but he could have strong returning value once he does come back. With Jimmy Garoppolo also sidelined with an ankle injury, the offense should at least livelier with a healthy Nick Mullens under center. In their one full game together Mullens targeted Reed on six (6) passes.

Suggested Bid: $1,000,000

Sleeper Add

Jakobi Meyers, WR – NE (Owned 17%)

Week 8: 6 Rec/58 yards

It appears that the Patriots are turning their eyes towards 2021 and evaluating what they have currently on the roster and who they will carry over. Jakobi Meyers appears to be one of those players as he received ten (10) targets in week 8 with Julian Edelman and N’Keal Harry sidelined. Meyers has played on 89 percent of the snaps the last two weeks and after a strong preseason in 2019 might be growing into a more permanent role in the offense this season. The Patriots also have a matchup against the New York Jets in week 9 that could offer another great opportunity for Meyers to put up double-digit fantasy points.

Suggested Bid: $500,000
