Week 9 QB Streaming: Three to Target and One to Avoid

Welcome back, Tom Brady owners! I know those 25 points per game were nice, but admit it, you missed us.  We’ve been doing just fine without you. The only big miss in Week 8 was Alex Smith, and that’s only because he kept getting knocked out of the game. If you combined Smith’s points with backup Nick Foles‘s, they would have been the QB6. Alas, we don’t get bonus points for good process, so we’re stuck with Smith’s QB26 performance.

Streaming has been a challenge, not only because of bye weeks, but because the QBs we expected to perform well are living up to expectations. Plus, the early season surprises have been gobbled up and are no longer streaming eligible. Still, we’re streaming two top 12 QBs (among QBs who have started at least four games) and another in the top 18.

Week 9 brings more tough choices, but the matchups look a little better than last week’s.
