Week 16: QB Streaming in the Championship Game

QB streaming advice for Week 16 and wrap-up of the 2017 fantasy football season.

Week 15 QB Streaming Recap

I won’t get too nostalgic, but after enduring what seemed like a never ending off-season of premature analysis and one too many MFL10s to help fill the void of fantasy-less months, it’s unnerving that we are back here again. That is, once we win a ship. Hopefully, Russell Wilson didn’t lead you to the playoffs only to mess the bed when you needed him most (I’m not bitter, you’re bitter) and the Wentz-less owners managed to find success in the streaming options available. My streaming picks collectively put up their best performance thus far this season, even the one I told you to avoid. Nick Foles started where Carson Wentz left off, Blake Bortles secured the Jags their first playoff spot in 10-years, and Jimmy Garoppolo added another notch to his consecutive win streak. It was a high scoring week for some (Garoppolo is QB17 with just six points less than QB2 Foles) and a low scoring game for those you wouldn’t expect (still looking at you: Wilson). It will be interesting to see how Garoppolo fares against the Jags this week, but not interesting enough to test your luck with him leading your championship.
Status QB FanDuel Points QB Rank

2QB Option 1 Nick Foles 25.5 2

Cumulative 2017 Fantasy Season Results

Though I had some highs and lows, as I evaluate my performance as a whole this streaming season I can confidently say my picks stayed up to par with most drafted quarterbacks. I also seemed to excel more in my top pick for both 1QB and 2QB formats rather than my second pick in each. I could have also looked at cumulative QB rankings, but that would done a great disservice to Deshaun Watson.
Status PPG
1QB Option 1 20.1
1QB Option 2 15.9
2QB Option 1 19.78
2QB Option 2 13.56
Overall, it was a fun season full of surprising performances that always found a way to remind us of the ever-true Any Given Sunday mentality. And now comes our final streaming picks for the 2017-18 fantasy football season. 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.
