Fantasy Football: Week 2 QB Streamers

Carson Palmer and Larry FItzgerald

Welcome to Week 2 QB Streamers where you can find options to help you win this week. Week 1 brought about a ton of interesting results. There were some QBs like Andy Dalton and Carson Palmer who frustrated their owners. Others like Carson Wentz, Matthew Stafford and Sam Bradford that absolutely killed it. Let’s look at few names to target if you need QB help this week.


Carson Palmer at Indianapolis Colts

Carson Palmer was a mess on Sunday against the Detroit Lions even before David Johnson went down with a wrist injury. Palmer finished with 269 yards with one touchdown and three picks.

This week, Palmer has a chance to rebound in a big way against the Indianapolis Colts. He is likely facing the worst defense in the entire NFL. They are the same defense that allowed Jared Goff to throw for 306 yards and 1 TD this weekend. With Johnson out, the Cardinals should lean even more on the pass.

Larry Fitzgerald, John Brown and the rest of the Cardinal pass catchers should see a ton of targets. The likely won’t be able to lean heavily on the run with Johnson out.

Carson Wentz at Kansas City Chiefs

Carson Wentz looked great in a divisional road game against the Washington Redskins throwing for 307 yards and 2 touchdowns. This week he is on the road again to face the Kansas City Chiefs. A team that will be without Eric Berry, who is their best defensive player.

Expect Wentz to throw a good amount in this game and target Alshon Jeffery, Zach Ertz and the emerging Nelson Agholor all over the field. Philadelphia is struggling to find a run game and should put plenty on Wentz.

Another strong performance from Wentz would lead to him becoming a legit weekly starter in many fantasy leagues. Pick him up and thrive!

Sam Bradford at Pittsburgh Steelers

Mr. Sam Bradford was my favorite streaming option of Week 1 and boy did he come through. He passed for 347 yards and 3 touchdowns. Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph are legit weapons. RB Dalvin Cook helps open up things for the passing game and helps take some pressure off an awful offensive line.

This week Bradford is on the road against the Steelers. At home, Pittsburgh puts up a ton of points and really opens things up. Bradford should have a ton of opportunities to utilize his pass catchers in an effort to keep up. DeShone Kizer and the Browns were able to move the ball against the Steelers in Week 1. Bradford should be able to do much of the same even in a road tilt.
