Streaming Options

Baker Mayfield | Cleveland Browns | 43% Owned

Even thought Baker Mayfield is on the road for the second straight week, he provides an excellent streaming option this week. He is facing a Pittsburgh Steelers defense that is allowing the 4th most fantasy points this season.

The Steelers are coming into this game off of a bye week. They should put up points in bunches and force Mayfield to do the same.

He should perform much better this time around after not performing well in his first NFL start against this team. I expect him to be north of 250 passing yards and 3 total TDs.

Case Keenum | Denver Broncos | 23% Owned

Before the Broncos destroyed the Arizona Cardinals including two pick sixs, the Denver passing game was coming around. He threw for over 300 yards and 2 TDs in each contest.

This week he faces a Chiefs defense that has been a mess despite looking better a week ago. Kansas City has scored a ton of points on the offensive side of the ball and should force Denver to keep pace. I expect another 300 plus yard performance with multiple passing TDs. Fire up Keenum this week!

Alex Smith | Washington Redskins | 44% Owned

The season has not gone as well for Alex Smith after an insane 2017. This week he has a chance to play well. The Giants are allowing the 13th most fantasy points to opposing passers. They also just traded DB Eli Apple.

Smith should be able to utilize his TEs against a defense that has issue slowing them down. He should also be able to make plays with his legs against a defense that struggles against scrambling QBs.

I would look at Baker or Keenum if you want upside from your QB streamer this week. If you want safety and stability Smith makes more sense.
