3 Week 1 QB Streamers to Target (and 1 to Avoid)

You know what this streaming life is about. Maybe you’re a late round quarterback trendsetter, or maybe you were caught up in 2015’s QBpocalypse and liked the excitement. Either way, hopefully you’re prepared for the heartache of a Nick Foles week. I won’t promise to help you stream your way to QB10 production, and you shouldn’t expect it. Best case scenario, you land a startable QB early on and stop reading this article by Week 3. Worst case scenario, I’ll string together a few bad calls, make a foolish bold prediction about Christian Ponder in Week 12, and write the last four weeks drunk(er than normal). Here’s the plan.1 Each week, I’ll rank three QBs with less than 50 percent ownership on ESPN – and ideally much lower ownership for at least one. If it’s a good week, I’ll also mention one QB to avoid. And, of course, I’ll track my performance so you can see how badly you missed out by not drafting Andrew Luck in the fifth round. Enough run up. Let’s get to this week’s picks:
  1. Subject to change, naturally.  (back)

  1. I'm thinking of benching Rivers this week against KC. Do you like these streamers better?

  2. When tracking the picks, are you tracking all three QBs? To convince me streaming is really viable, make that one pick each week and let's see where the numbers end up.

  3. I am tracking all three. My goal isn't to convince you that streaming is viable; it's to help people who are streaming (whether by choice or by unfortunate circumstance). If I listed only one choice, I wouldn't be helping those people very much. But for scoring purposes, feel free to ignore Options 2 and 3 if you like.

  4. Sorry I missed this, but I hope you went with a streamer. You can always get me @BrianMaloneFF.
