Free-agent acquisition budget (FAAB) leagues level the playing field for nabbing fantasy free agents after each week of the NFL season. They also allow fantasy managers to employ a great deal more strategy when acquiring players because each team has a limited amount of dollars to work with. All players in this article will be rostered in less than half of Yahoo leagues unless otherwise noted. Here is how you should be allocating your FAAB heading into Week 7.

RB Gus Edwards, Baltimore Ravens

Suggested FAAB Spend: less than 5%

Mark Ingram left the Ravens' Week 6 matchup with an ankle injury, but initial reports indicate that it isn't a long-term injury. The Ravens are on a bye this week, so Ingram could get away with no time missed. Still, this injury serves as a reminder of what could be if Ingram does sit out at some point this year.

Edwards notched 14 carries with Ingram on the sideline, five more than second-round rookie J.K. Dobbins. If Ingram is ever unable to go, Edwards would be the leading rusher for a Baltimore team that has scored three times in all but one game this year. Edwards is a worthwhile stash for his upside but makes sense only on teams that can afford to tie down a roster spot to an RB4/5 for now.
