QB Streaming Options: Break Glass in Case of Emergency

Vikings Case Keenum

Welcome to Week 13! This week is a must win for most owners who are either starting their fantasy playoffs or are pushing to lock up a seat at the table. If you have been QB streaming, had Eli Manning get benched, or have your QB in a tough match-up it’s time to stream.

Marcus Mariota, Matthew Stafford and Andy Dalton are QBs I am looking to avoid this week. Mariota especially who is an outright drop for me in most leagues. I don’t care how juicy his matchups are going to be. The Titans aren’t throwing enough for him to produce for his fantasy owners.

Below are a few names I really like this week if you are streaming.


Case Keenum | QB | Minnesota Vikings
54% Owned on Yahoo!

Case Keenum has been balling out this season. He has 17 points or more in ESPN standard scoring over the past 4 weeks. Since the bye week he has eclipsed 280 yards in all 3 games. He has 8 total TDs over that span. This week he gets a Falcons defense allowing 250 plus yards in 4 of 6 games. They are due for some TD regression only allowing two over the past four weeks. Fire up Keenum this week.

Josh McCown | QB | New York Jets

Josh McCown has been a reliable fantasy starter this season. I know we all expected that to be a sentence typed heading into Week 13. He has double digit TDs in six of his last seven games. He has been utilizing his legs rushing for three TDs. This week McCown is home to face a Chiefs team that is collapsing. They are so desperate they brought Darrelle Revis out of retirement. McCown should feast this week throwing for 250 plus yards and multiple TDs.

Jameis Winston | QB | Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jameis Winston is expected to be under center this week on the road vs Green Bay. The Packers are middle of the road against the pass but gave up 351 yards and 4 TDs a week ago to Ben Roethlisberger. They have given up 297 yards or more in 4 of the past 5 weeks. Assuming Winston is healthy he should be a strong start this week. Winston back under center should mean Cameron Brate can be a thing again this week. Winston can be your QB the rest of the way with a favorable playoff schedule.

Blake Bortles | QB | Jacksonville Jaguars

I’ve reccomended far too much Blake Bortles this season but once again it make sense. He is home facing a Colts defense allowing the 13th most fantasy points to opposing QBs.They have allowed double digit points in every game except last week against Mariota. Bortles can be your answer if you’re digging deep.

Geno Smith | QB | New York Giants

Want to have fun this week? Start Geno Smith! I know what you’re thinking, Geno Smith is terrible. I mean is far from hall of fame worthy but he is not that bad. He is facing a Raiders defense that is allowing the 6th most fantasy points to opposing QBs. They only have one interception this season which came courtesy Paxton Lynch who is flaming dumpster dot gif. There is some talk that Davis Webb could play in this game with gives me pause. But let’s be honest, if you are down this far you don’t have a ton of options. Trevor Siemian threw 2 TDs in one half a week ago. Geno could easily do the same thing.
