QB Streaming Week 13: Securing Your Fantasy Playoff Spot

QB streaming advice in 1-QB and 2-QB leagues for Week 13 of the 2017 fantasy football season.

Week 12 QB Streaming Recap

Welcome back to reality, Alex Smith owners. Though this is still Smith’s best fantasy season by far, it looks like the ride has come to an end. Dak Prescott owners, we didn’t forget about you either. Meanwhile, Eli Manning fans, you have our deepest sympathies. This is normally the time of year where there is less of a need for quarterback streamers. However, with QB1s already eyeing the off-season (looking at you: Smith, Prescott, Jay Cutler, Derek Carr), quarterback streamers might be your best option for securing your playoff spot. In Week 12, Case Keenum continued to wow us all and Andy Dalton delivered against the Browns (as most do). On the other side, Tyrod Taylor secured a win for the Bills (and hopefully his starting role) but less so for fantasy owners; and Jacoby Brissett did what he could while being sacked…eight times (league-high 43 times on the season).
Status QB FanDuel Points QB Rank
1QB Option 1 Andy Dalton 19.2 10
1QB Option 2 Case Keenum 27.3 3
2QB Option 1 Tyrod Taylor 14 21
2QB Option 2 Jacoby Brissett 7.4 28
And just like that it’s Week 13. I’m going to avoid recommending Keenum as your top streaming option this week solely due to the fact that I have already included him the past two weeks. I will note that he is now 54 percent owned in Yahoo leagues, so if he’s still available, snag him while you still can. Keenum has had at least two passing touchdowns in three of his last four games, a minimum of 280 yards and no less than 19 fantasy points in each of those games. He will be put to the test on the road against Atlanta and Carolina the next two weeks, though it may work in fantasy’s favor by requiring him to leverage his passing game more than usual. This is me, still not picking him, because he is above the fold. Now, onto my Week 13 streaming picks. Game Level Similarity Projections are taken from Dave Caban’s model. 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.

  1. Would you use Josh McCown or Cam Newton in a must win?

  2. Hundley or Big Ben if AB is out?
