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 15.

WR/RB Lynn Bowden Jr., Miami Dolphins

Suggested FAAB Spend: 60-80%

Bowden comes in as the most valuable free agent in fantasy this week because of his multi-position eligibility on many sites. Specifically, if he’s able to be played at running back wherever you're looking to add him, he becomes exponentially more valuable. The Raiders originally drafted Bowden, a college quarterback, as a running back in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft. They traded him to the Dolphins for a Day 3 pick swap in the 2021 NFL Draft.
