Week 15: QB Streaming for the Postseason

QB streaming advice for Week 15 and the postseason of the 2017 fantasy football season.

Week 14 QB Streaming Recap

I feel like I say it every year, but this season has delivered more devastating injuries than most. And this week was no exception. After career seasons, both Josh McCown (hand) and Carson Wentz (knee) suffered season-ending injuries in Week 14. Wentz leaves the Philadelphia Eagles, who appeared on their way to Super Bowl 52, without their MVP. It doesn’t end there – both the Bills’ quarterbacks Tyrod Taylor (knee) and Nathan Peterman (concussion) are trying to return from injury, and Marcus Mariota suffered a sprained left knee, though coach Mike Mularkey says it’s not serious. These injuries don’t only affect the players and their franchises’ playoff hopes, but fantasy owners’ postseason aspirations as well. My week felt equally solemn. Jimmy Garoppolo is now 2-0 as the 49ers starting quarterback and had as successful a game as Jameis Winston (while Winston has much more talent around him). Meanwhile, Blaine Gabbert continues to decline the longer he remains a starter. My streamer miss was Brett Hundley, who put up QB4 numbers and kept the Green Bay Packers playoff hopes alive for another week (though it will likely be his last week as a starting QB this season).
Status QB FanDuel Points QB Rank
1QB Option Jameis Winston 16.4 15
2QB Option 1 Jimmy Garoppolo 16.1 18
2QB Option 2 Blaine Gabbert 8.3 30
For Wentz owners in particular, now is not the time to wallow in your sorrows. Rather, it’s time to focus and leverage the “next man up” mentality. If you can win in Week 2 by streaming a quarterback, you can win in Week 15. And there are still plenty of fish in free agency. Whether you’re ready or not, it’s playoff season, and I am here to help. This week, we’re changing things up, and I’m giving my top starts and sits based on the RotoViz QB Streamers Week 15 message board.

  1. I'm going Jimmy G over Mariota this week and hoping to have to worry about next week.
