The first couple weeks are where you should spend at least fifty percent of your Free Agent Auction Budget. Yeah, I said Half. At least. Spend that money. These early weeks are mas importante. Don’t worry about dropping the money on the top guys because isn’t it better to have them and drop them than not have a possible lottery ticket? But it does seem a bit weird. We’re not taught to spend all our money right away. We’re supposed to save some for a rainy day. You can, but experience has shown me that the most valuable guys come after the first couple weeks and very often after week one. You don’t need money once the season is over (and if you don’t get one of these guys your seasons may be over a lot sooner than you think), so don’t worry about spending it now.

If you want an FAAB lesson check out the preseason column is here. Now let’s get to the good stuff.  You know these guys because everyone can’t stop talking about them. Here are the top waiver adds and what should you pay (assuming $100 FAAB Budget):

Gold (sure is shiny):

Kerwynn Williams ($36)

Kenny Golladay ($23)

(Note: If you own David Johnson and/or Allen Robinson you should consider going $5 extra)

Williams is the must add this week. Johnson is going to be out a month at minimum even if a second opinion lets him heal quicker. This injury is killer and I feel bad for his owners (of course I’m one, in my biggest money league). Golladay still has to share the ball with Golden Tate and Marvin Jones and that worries me more than his talent. He’s a WR3 in the near term and could be a WR2 by the end of the season…on the other hand he also could have peaked week one, but that’s the chance we take, amirite?

Silver (is still nice):

Tarik Cohen ($17)

Kendall Wright ($11)

Someone has to be the number one receiver in Chicago is the only reason for Wright. Cohen is going to play on passing downs as Jordan Howard can’t catch to save his life (dropped a pass inside the 5) and the Bears stink, so Cohen should be on the field a fair amount. He’s a flex play at best this season.

Bronze (why we hating on bronze? Maybe because it turns that nasty green color over time?)

Allen Hurns ($7)

Cooper Kupp ($7)

Alvin Kamara ($6)

Nelson Agholor ($6)

Andre Ellington ($5)

Javoris Allen ($5)

Marlon Mack ($5)

Benny Fowler ($4)

Charles Clay($3)

Kupp is a guy who could be a low-end WR2 best case scenario, but most likely he settles in as a WR3, or bye week fill in; he’s priced as the latter. Not an Allen fan; if was any good they wouldn’t have signed Woodhead in the first place. Woodhead’s injury should open the door for the Wideouts and Terrance West. Kamara and Mack are both upside stashes; if you have the roster room or miss out on the top guys these two are going to be plays later the season. Benny Folwer is stealing touchdowns from Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas (I’m a little bitter) and maybe him and Simien have a groovy kind of thing going on, so he’s another speculative add. Clay gets no respect, but he’s going to be a top seven tight end season and he’ll cost you next to nothing.

You know, no one in these top groups really excites me (because if they did, there would be a platinum tier) but I know that at least one of these guys is going to be valuable all season long. So try for a couple (or all of them, if you have the guys to drop).

$2 Defenses (get a jump on your opponent if playing the defensive shuffle):

Oakland (vs New York Jets); Baltimore (vs Cleveland); Tampa Bay (vs Chicago)

For a Buck:

Marquise Lee, Sam Bradford, Alex Smith, Chris Thompson, Corey Davis, Danny Amendola

All guys if you need to fill some bench spots, go ahead. Lee I like the most and his opportunity maybe here with Robinson out. Thompson is the same guy he was last year; worth owning if Washington is down. Outside of that, I wouldn’t mess with him but if you like him, a dollar is fine. There’s a lot of QBs out there; Smith gets the Eagles so another good game is possible; Bradford has a much tougher assignment going to Pittsburgh. Davis has upside and is worth a dollar if you need to fill a roster spot. Amendola has a concussion and usually is hurt thus I advise avoiding him, but it’s your dollar.

You know it’s my English teachers that make me have to write a conclusion, or maybe it’s that I like to share. I wouldn’t call myself an over-sharer because to me that’s strange. Nobody wants to know everything about you when you meet them. Leave a little mystery, right? Well it’s no mystery (I really hope you’re shaking your head) that at least one of the guys on the above list will bust out this season and finish top ten at their position. Here’s hoping we all get one!

    Drop one of Fleener/Eifert for Clay?

    • Phil B.

      Phil B. says:
      (link)

      Fleener. Eifert will pay off this season.

    • Stumanji! says:
      (link)

      Personally I wouldn’t even carry 2 TEs. Use that roster spot on a lottery ticket.

      • Phil B.

        Phil B. says:
        (link)

        @Stumanji!: that’s not a bad call either. Eifert will be better. Clay should clear most waivers, too.

  2. Steve says:
    (link)

    Think I should use #1 waiver priority on Kerwynn in a 12 team half PPR? My RBs are Powell, Anderson, Gore, T West, Perkins. Or should I stay put and wait for something bigger? Don’t want to waste my top position on a guy who’s going to be in a committee.

    • Phil B.

      Phil B. says:
      (link)

      @Steve: absolutely use it. I’m a Kerwynn fan, and he’d fit nicely with your backs. If leveon gets hurt his backup might be better, but I can’t think of anyone else right now that would be worth it in the coming weeks.

      • Steve says:
        (link)

        @Phil B.: Thanks Phil, awesome article btw love the format!

          @Steve: thanks for reading! Good luck the rest of the way!

  3. Allan says:
    (link)

    Not worried about the rumblings that Williams will be part of a committee with Ellington, and Penny? Plus the probably signing some other backs like Foster and maybe CJ2K. I kinda feel like Cohen will have more steady production than Williams. Especially in a PPR.

    • Phil B.

      Phil B. says:
      (link)

      @Allan: coaches say committees all the time, in this case I just don’t buy it. The others will get use, sure, but I see Kerwynn as a possible low end RB1. Cohen won’t take Howard’s carries, so I see his upside as more limited. I agree that PPR-wise they are closer, though I still want Williams.

  4. What's a Drexl? says:
    (link)

    interesting you are i believe the only one around here lower on cohen than k-will. and probably by far the only who’d say over 1/3 of budget on him too. i agree COMPLETELY that you need to get the guys that are biggest names in weeks 1-3 as i’d guess probably 70% of the top end of season adds were from this period, and possibly even more % of the total points at end of season from the top adds obtained in weeks 1-3.

    – i do disagree that hurns should be over m.lee though, hurns was garbage last year and lee was a top prospect who looked damn good last year, those guys often take till year 3, his only issue seems to have been role this year, and that problem is gone.

    • What's a Drexl? says:
      (link)

      @What’s a Drexl?: you also seem to have more sense than some round here on j.allen. i’m sort of worried this becomes like last year with west vs his usage, but THAT game isn’t a real way to tell, as almost all of j.allen’s usage was ONLY after big lead that they were running out clock on.

      • What's a Drexl? says:
        (link)

        @What’s a Drexl?: also, now that we’ve actually seen how clay is used without woods/watkins, yeah i’m at least saying top 10 TE possibly. last year destroyed his value and most of my previous faith in him (for 16 team leagues, where i used to punt TE all the time and had him numerous times)

        • Phil B.

          Phil B. says:
          (link)

          @What’s a Drexl?: I want to not like clay cause he seems so boring. But he’s option 1 in Buffalo, and that’s good enough for me.

      • Phil B.

        Phil B. says:
        (link)

        @What’s a Drexl?: totally on Allen. I mean, he’s one of the best options for those that won week 1 and aren’t using FAAB, besides that, eck.

    • Phil B.

      Phil B. says:
      (link)

      @What’s a Drexl?: I can definitely be on board with Lee over hurns…i just keep thinking about his awesome few game stretch a couple years back and it clouds my judgment a little.

      • What's a Drexl? says:
        (link)

        @Phil B.: oh no go back 2 years and hurns was pretty good, i had him in many 14’s (backup) or starter/flex in 16’s and up. m.lee was still in prospect wait mode at that time.

  5. Big E Is a Creep says:
    (link)

    How much would you spend on Chris Carson?

    • Phil B.

      Phil B. says:
      (link)

      @Big E Is a Creep: I could see going $5 or $6. He’s there with Kamara and Mack, upside picks, though Carson is in the best situation. Especially if Rawls is garbage.

      • Big E Is a Creep says:
        (link)

        @Phil B.: It seems that you’re ranking Carson lower than some. Aren’t all 3 locked into timeshares?
        Would you bump up your bids for Cohen and Allen a few dollars in PPR leagues?

        • Phil B.

          Phil B. says:
          (link)

          @Big E Is a Creep: Cohen absolutely. Not an Allen fan.
          The other 3 are in timeshares true, Carson worries me slightly more, because if Rawls comes back and is decent Carson has little to no value. Kamara should have some value either way.

      • Stumanji! says:
        (link)

        @Big E Is a Creep</[email protected]Phil B.: Rawls was dropped before week 1 due to inactivity. He’s still the lead back in seattle thouhh, right? How much FAAB would you drop on him?

        • Phil B.

          Phil B. says:
          (link)

          @Stumanji!: $4. I dropped him in a 10 teamed before last week. He’s shown promise, not health. So $6 even, if u really want him

  6. Brent

    The Fantasy Dick says:
    (link)

    Just like everyone who has DJ, I need someone to talk me off the cliff (although I still won my week 1 match luckily).

    12 tm, standard with $100 Free Agent budget

    We start 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 Flex

    My RBs are: David Johnson, Cook, Gore, Mack, Breida
    My WRs are: Kelvin Benjamin, Jeffery, Garcon, Hogan, Maclin

    Available RBs: K. Williams, Kamara, Chris Thompson, Tolbert, Buck Allen

    But I love Golladay.

    My question, do I drop Breida and bet the farm on Golladay and ride with 3 wrs until DJ gets back or do I drop Breida for one of those not so exciting RBs? Or do I grab Golladay then hope a better RB option pops up?

    Or do I drop Breida and Hogan and/or Maclin for Golladay and 1 of those RBs?

    Thanks for you advice.

    TFD

    • Phil B.

      Phil B. says:
      (link)

      @The Fantasy Dick: I don’t think breida is a hold for now and I’d go big on Williams. Though if Golladay is a guy you like, go for him second. Only needing to start 2 WR makes going after Golladay less important, but if u really like him, get him. Better to like your team. Good luck!

      • Brent

        The Fantasy Dick says:
        (link)

        @Phil B.:
        You’d rather have Hogan and Maclin than Golladay at this point?

        I like Golladay, but you’re right, I need the RB depth and Williams seems to be the play even if it’s a long shot.

        Thanks!

        • Phil B.

          Phil B. says:
          (link)

          @The Fantasy Dick: Don’t love hogan, do love Maclin. Golladay just has the other 3 guys to split targets with, and that worries me most with him

    Does Zona signing Johnson change the WIlliams bidding dude?

    • Phil B.

      Phil B. says:

      @mike: not to me. Cj2k is depth only. There’s a reason they cut him in the first place

  8. Comatose says:
    (link)

    I have an overload at RB in my .5 PPR league. Would you deal Marshawn or Cook for Brandin Cooks?

    QB – Wilson, Big Ben
    RB – Ajayi, Hunt, Cook, Marshawn, Doug Martin, Fat Rob Kelly, White, Perine
    WR – AJ GReen, Dez, Devante Parker, (Allen Robinson), Corey Coleman
    TE – Eifert

    • Comatose says:
      (link)

      @Comatose: And to follow up, would you deal either of them for Tyreek Hill?

      • Phil B.

        Phil B. says:
        (link)

        @Comatose: I would look to deal Marshawn for either. Carr is going to pass a lot. Cooks looked great last night so hard to trade him and I think he has more big games this year than Bradford. Marshawn for Cooks should be a go.

  9. Ted says:
    (link)

    Maybe due to game flow, but does it concern you at all that Ellington received 20 snaps to Williams’ 9 snaps after Johnson got hurt?

    Especially relevant to PPR leagues, that tells me Ellington will be at the very least the passing down back…

    • Phil B.

      Phil B. says:
      (link)

      @Ted: that’s a solid point. Arizona offense isn’t great, and their D definitely disappointed. I just see little upside with Ellington.

  10. mrm3711 says:
    (link)

    Thanks for these price guides, I lost both Johnson and A-Rob on my big money team so will need to stock up this week. Somebody offered me Carlos Hyde for Johnson, do I take it or hold on DJ and hope he gets healthy quick? I’m not too worried about the bench space, but the playoffs start week 13 so I’m tempted to pull the trigger and get something for Johnson.

    • Stumanji! says:
      (link)

      @mrm3711: Take it. Not worth holding DJ all season if you don’t even make the playoffs.

    • A.A. Ron Rodgers says:
      (link)

      @mrm3711: Assuming you’re in a redraft league, I’d say exploring the trade market for DJ now makes sense; the latest is that DJ is going on IR, so the soonest he’ll be eligible to return is week 10. You gotta make the playoffs first and being without him for 10 weeks will def. hurt your chances.

      If it’s a keeper league, you might want to hold out and auction him off to a playoff team (assuming you’re not in the hunt for the playoffs).

      Just my $0.02

    • Phil B.

      Phil B. says:
      (link)

      @mrm3711: I agree, no point in waiting. Sucks to lose both, too. Good luck

      • mrm3711 says:
        (link)

        @Phil B.: Welp, the Hyde dealer is off the table, gonna hold DJ for now and see what I can get. Redraft league with an extra bench spot so that’s not killing me yet, but am definitely seeing what I can get for him. Thanks all!

        • Phil B.

          Phil B. says:
          (link)

          @mrm3711: I like the idea of shopping him, I may very well do the same. Let me know what your get for him, if you move him

  11. A.A. Ron Rodgers says:
    (link)

    It’s interesting, I have Golladay and Cohen flipped in terms of value and what I’m bidding in FAAB (0.5 PPR). I see Cohen’s role and value being stable and well defined than Golladay’s, because as you note, Golly will be fighting Tate, Jones Jr., and really Riddick for target share, while the Bears will be throwing to…who?

    Anyway, just an interesting POV and I always appreciate someone who sees it different than me so I can get a contrasting opinion. Love the work and format, looking forward to it this season.

    • Phil B.

      Phil B. says:
      (link)

      @A.A. Ron Rodgers: thanks! Cohen role should be defined, and he might go the ty Montgomery route (mentioned by another commenter) and line up at wide out. I hope the Bears run more two RB sets with him and howard. I appreciate you looking at both sides, the comments have made me reconsider too.

  12. Jedimasters says:

    I’m in a 12 team standard league with the #1 waiver. Who is the add between Cohen, Kerwyn Williams and Golladay? We start 2 RBs, 3 WRs and a Flex.

    RBs: M. Gordon, M. Ingram
    WRs: D. Adams, T. Pryor, D. Parker
    Flex: T. West

    Bench: C. Carson, A. Kamara, R. Cobb, M. Wallace

    Jay voted Golladay. But after seeing the NO Saints backfield do I need Cohen? Or stick with Golladay? Or is this a matter of just grabbing the best talent from the pool?

    Hey Phil. Great article!

    What do you think about the below trade offer? I lost Allen Robinson and Kevin White last Sunday so I’m quite thin at WR.

    12 Team / H2H / 0.5 PPR / Start 2RB, 2WR, 2FLEX

    My RBs: Devonta, Gurley, Lynch, Blount, Vereen, Jamaal Williams
    My WRs: Davante Adams, Snead (suspended until week 4)

    I give: Gurley

    I get : Michael Thomas & Terrance West

    I can also hold tight and hope my bids get me Golladay and Agholar

    Hey Phil,

    Great piece here , dude! This is the first year I had a top 2 pick that I can even remember, so that means I lost Johnson on my two favorite leagues… My FAAB scenario is this; $200 budget, 12 teams. I lost Allen Robinson and Johnson week 1. What do you think of going for both Cohen and Williams? If so, what kind of money would you look to shell out? My RB options are DREADFUL without DJ (Perkins, Forte, Jamaal Williams, Prosise)… Any advice?

    Thanks!

    • Phil B.

      Phil B. says:
      (link)

      @OldMilwaukeePounders: thanks! Wow that’s some crap luck. I love the idea of going for both. I’d go the same values as above, maybe even bump Kerwynn. But you can definitely use both, so dive in. Good luck!

      • OldMilwaukeePounders says:
        (link)

        @Phil B.: My initial thought was to go something like $40 for Kerwynn and $32 for Cohen. Does that seem reasonable?

      @Bobby: Ive found in year one of FAAB usually people are more conservative, but that doesn’t mean you have to be. I would throw money at Cohen and Golladay, maybe even a bit more than I said above. I’d drop Charles and brown.

  22. Chucky says:
    (link)

    Do you see an increased role for JJ Nelson with the injury to DJ and Gabriel? Both seem like possible hybrid backs in the Ty Montgomery/Hill mode. Now perhaps even Cohen?

    • Phil B.

      Phil B. says:
      (link)

      @Chucky: I like that idea, especially out of Nelson, though John brown, if healthy, takes opportunity away from him. Cohen especially I’d like to see used as a wide out to get him on the field. The Bears had some plays with Cohen and Howard, so you are most likely o to something

    in a 10-team ppr keeper league, FAAB rules. Current starting lineup:

    QB’s: cam, wentz
    RB’s: zeke, powell
    wr’s: julio, fitzy, tate
    TE: bennett
    flex: martavis, rishard

    rookie: curtis samuel (cannot change him unless I switch w/ another rookie)

    Current waiver options I’ve pinned down:

    thompson, vereen, agholor, amendola, morris (i own zeke), all Arizona backups.

    do you recommend any of these pickups as an improvement? I’m thinking dropping gore or forte for morris to handcuff DAL RB’s. Maybe only improvement would be on lockett w/ one of these WR’s.

    • Phil B.

      Phil B. says:

      @David: sorry for the delay, I swore I responded last night. Anyhoo, I’d say Forte or lockett for agholor, but really you could hold. Morris is 3rd stringer, I’d rather have Ellington or thompson over him. Lockett also math have more to show, I’m giving him another week

      • David says:
        (link)

        I stayed put. Agholor made it through the cut. Lockett needs to show me something as well as gore. I’m questioning having forte. DAL handcuff seems to be more valuable than him right now. Thoughts?

          @David: I could see dumping Forte, the jets are awful, and possibly zeke still gets suspended, giving Morris some value

    Phil b 1)would you trade Terrence west and denaile walker for brandin cooks?
    2)would you trade Jay ajaiy for Jordan Howard and TY Hilton ?

      @Jose: 1.absolutely,as long as west is replaceable on your roster. 2. I’d do that deal too. I love Ajayi, but getting 2 starters are worth it. I’m not worried about cogent taking too many touches from howard

    as good a place as any to post this, to compare some crazy FAAB bids, and while i agree generally with the “you gotta get the best guys early” idea, this is just nuts. i saw one guy bid 60% on cohen (and lose to a 70%) and also bid 40% on k.will (and win that one). mack for 21%, i got j.allen in that league for a 12% (and have west). my 21% on cohen was only the 5th highest bid. my 20% on k.will was 2nd too. even freakin c.johnson got a 9% (which is crazy), and that guy didn’t even put in a bid on k.will.

      @goodfold2: that’s nuts. We will have some good adds after this week typically, and even week and none of these guys blew me away, not like previous years. I actually like that Allen pickup at that price considering the other costs. I’m also somewhat surprised by the Cohen over Kerwynn love, but to each their own

    Nice!

    Hey, it’s me, RotoLance. I wrote the FAAB post last year for Razzball. I’m fairly sure you are doing a better job than I did. In any case the formatting is better. Though I gotta say I had perhaps the top preseason post of the year last year:

    Anyway… I’d probably rank these guys somewhat similarly. Golladay and Cohen are my top adds of the week, perhaps followed closely by Kerywnn. and Allen. I’m not nearly as sold on Kerwynn’s workload and overall value as you are. I think most of the guys, I mean across the board, are somewhat close in value this week. There’s way more guys than a usual week 1 in my opinion. However I’m sure other people don’t consider them close in value so that changes things as far as the bidding market goes.

    Keep it up, hombre. Now I got a figure out precisely how I’m going to replace Allen Robinson in my home league.. WR was my weak point to begin with.

      @RotoLance: thanks brother! I found in a couple leagues Cohen went for more, but in my main FAAB league Williams went for 50, Cohen 40. Totally agree seems like a lot of decent week 1 adds, at least more than the recent seasons.

      Who did you wind up replacing Robinson with?

        @Phil B.: I acquired Golladay ($11), and Paul Richardson ($4). As far as I’m concerned they are both upside players. I just want to own them to see what they are going to do. It’s a 10 team league so decent players tend to remain available throughout the season. That’s actually the biggest difference between 12 team and 10 team. In 12 team by the 3rd, 4th week or so the waivers are barren. In week one basically the same players were available in the 12 team league that I’m in (which I think is made up of at least a few Razzball readers, it’s one of Jennifer’s leagues) and my 10 team home league.

        I think Paul Richardson is going under the radar. Both he and Golladay are “wait and see” type players I think.

        Just FYI, Cohen went for $36 (I bid $10) with three other bids in the twenties. Kerwynn for $31 (I bid $7). J Allen for only $7 (I bid $6).

        So I got some upside and I saved some FAAB. Not a bad week one.

          @RotoLance: nicely done, I feel better about my valuations for Cohen and kerwynn. I wonder about Richardson, since lockett is “supposed to” be more involved this week. Golladay is pure upside with his situation, which I think makes for a more reasonable bid,though there weren’t really any other WR to go after this week.
