Week 15 QB Streaming RecapI 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|
|1QB Option 1||Blake Bortles||25||5|
|1QB Option 2||Jimmy Garoppolo||19.1||17|
|2QB Option 1||Nick Foles||25.5||2|
Cumulative 2017 Fantasy Season ResultsThough 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.
|1QB Option 1||20.1|
|1QB Option 2||15.9|
|2QB Option 1||19.78|
|2QB Option 2||13.56|
