Week 14 QB Streaming for 1-QB and 2-QB Leagues

QB streaming advice in 1-QB and 2-QB leagues for Week 14 of the 2017 fantasy football season.

Week 13 QB Streaming Recap

And just like that, our time together has almost come to an end. I’m apparently in need of the offseason, having had my worst picks of the season in Week 13 – though all three quarterback secured their team a win. Josh McCown continued to surprise and delight while Brett Hundley maintained his consistency of being of inconsistent. Jimmy Garoppolo showed he’s capable of becoming the 49ers franchise quarterback but still has some growing pains.
Status QB FanDuel Points QB Rank
1QB Option Josh McCown 31.1 2
2QB Option 1 Brett Hundley 9 29
2QB Option 2 Jimmy Garoppolo 11.5 27
McCown is my new favorite streamer who shouldn’t continue to classify as a streamer. If he is still available in your league, take him. Even if it’s for the sake of preventing someone else from using him. McCown has thrown for over 300 yards in two straight games and has thrown only one interception in his last five. Though he’s proven to have a high floor even in tough matchups, he faces a Denver Broncos defense that’s allowed the most passing TDs this season, rounding out an NFL season that their own GM Jim Elway says he’s “embarrassed” of.  At this point in the season, if you’re fighting or have already clinched a playoff spot, most streamers aren’t going to lead you to a championship in standard leagues. Of course, as my weekly articles have shown, any QB with the right situation can lead the position in points any given week. For the most part, this week’s streaming article is focused on helping those in 2-QB leagues hoping to get lucky or DFS players looking for the underdog. However, if you’re in a 1QB league and have stuck around to read this, there is one interesting streamer who is under 50 percent owned in Yahoo leagues and might deliver if you’re second guessing your options. 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. Going into the playoffs do you think case keenum or Josh mcrrown is better to have?

  2. @iitrollface interesting question. I have Stafford and considering picking up Keenum. Sadly Jameis, McCown and Jimmy G are all owned. Is Case secretly criminally underrated and should I drop Yeldon to snag him?

  3. @IITrollface I have Case, but I think Mccown is better to have. But I hear Robby Anderson injured his hammy, that would take me away from him.

    @Will
    If Stafford is healthy, its probably best to start him.

    I am starting Case in my PO, and have been since the DET game. He has done well, a floor of 17 points in all games with a 27 point against DET. I would expect him to score around 17 - 20 points against CAR as well.

    Jamies has a rock bottom floor, he has scores under 10 points this season, I am too scared to start him this week.

  4. @turndownforwatt thanks. I also have Marvin Jones so am heavily incentivised to start Stafford if healthy. Obviously I'm screwed either way if he goes down early in the game and someone else throws picks in Marvin's direction.

    At this point it doesn't look like anyone will add Keenum, so can just keep an eye on the injury report and pick him up on Sat if need be. The other issue I face is that Winston would have been a nice pickup to join Brate, who I've re-added after the Gronk suspension. Your point about his low floor is well-noted, however.

  5. Would you start Winston or McCown over Mariota this week?
