Week 6 QB Streamers and 2 Sleepers for Deep Formats

QB streaming advice in 1-QB and 2-QB leagues for Week 6 of the 2017 fantasy football season.

Week 5 QB Streaming Recap

In this week’s episode of “what happened last Sunday,” Ben Roethlisberger stunned reporters and fans by attributing his five interceptions to “maybe I don’t have it anymore.” Tom Brady sprained his AC joint but will not miss any time, and Deshaun Watson continued his QB1 status, becoming such a fantasy asset that he is no longer streamable (now owned in 89% of Yahoo leagues). After making me look good last week, Watson’s two consecutive 40-plus point weeks have earned him a starting spot for the foreseeable fantasy future. Eli Manning had a decent game, but with injuries to five of his offensive starters, will not be a streamable candidate anytime soon. Tyrod Taylor was looking forward to his bye week, and Blake Bortles needs to say bye to his season. Though the Jaguars beat the Steelers 30-9 Sunday, Bortles had zero touchdowns and under 100 yards passing. I accept defeat and extend sincerest apologies for the Bortles pick.

1QB Option 2 Tyrod Taylor 11 22
2QB Option 1 Deshaun Watson 46 1
2QB Option 2 Blake Bortles 3 27
But the bye weeks bellow on. With four teams on bye and a few quarterback starts still in question, I’ve weeded through the unfavorable matchups to determine your best streaming options for Week 6.

The Player Projection Distributions are taken from the site’s GLSP app. These are great sources to cross check for the range of likely QB outcomes.
