Looking for Week Two Streamers? You’ve Come to the Right Place

Fantasy owners need to be patient with their players and not overreact to one week of NFL games. That advice is mainly directed at those owners who overreacted and were thinking about releasing certain players after one single game. I’m not talking about players drafted in the last few rounds, you’re supposed to churn that part of your roster. I’m talking about top players. While I’m not sending anyone to the waiver wire that I considered valuable on draft day, that doesn’t mean I have to start them this week either. I didn’t want to start Jimmy Garoppolo last week as I didn’t like his matchup, but I wasn’t releasing him. Here are a few players that may be able to help you this week if you’re struggling with other potential starters with a tough matchup.

Quarterback

Tyrod Taylor, Cleveland Browns: Yes, if you watched his game last week, Taylor was terrible. He didn’t look like he could complete a screen pass at times, but at the end of the day Taylor had one passing touchdown, one rushing touchdown, 197 pasing yards, and ran for an additional 77 yards. That’s a pretty good Fantasy performance. He should be better versus a Saints team that just got lit up by Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers: I’m not sure I have much more to say than Ben is at home this week, where his numbers are sure to improve. Plus, he’s unlikely to be playing through rain all game. All anyone is talking about is how good Patrick Mahomes and the offense for the Chiefs looked in Week 1, but the what they aren’t mentioning is how poor the defense was. This game could be yet another shootout.

Alex Smith, Washington Redskins: There are always going to be teams that we look to pick on each week. The Bills were a perfect example of that last week as Joe Flacco was a strong streaming option. This week, we bring you Smith versus the defensively challenged Colts. You should be looking to attack this defense weekly as there just isn’t much there for opposing offenses to fear. Smith couldn’t have picked a better home opener if he made the schedule himself.

Running Back

Phillip Lindsay, Denver Broncos: It was known that the Broncos liked Lindsay in preseason but what wasn’t known was exactly just how much. Well, we found out Sunday as Lindsay rushed for 71 yards and added another 31 yards and a score via the pass. Royce Freeman is still the starting RB for Denver as Lindsay is not built to be a three-down RB, but he has carved out a role for himself that should be a bit more than just a third-down back.

T.J. Yeldon, Jacksonville Jaguars: Leonard Fournette is questionable to play Sunday versus the Patriots due to a hamstring injury. If he misses the game than Yeldon will vault into RB2 territory. Even if Fournette does play Sunday, I doubt this is the last injury he will suffer. I’d want Yeldon as a security blanket just in case this hamstring injury does linger.

Wide Receiver

Brandon Marshall, Seattle Seahawks: It’s all about the “Revenge Game” Monday night. Well, no, it’s not. Doug Baldwin is out for the next couple of weeks and the simple fact is someone will have to step up in the receiving corps for the Seahawks. I could’ve put Tyler Lockett here also. Russell Wilson just has a knack of making teammates better. Wilson can buy time to wait for those WRs to get open. About the Revenge Game theory. I generally don’t buy into it much, but yeah, I think Marshall scores Monday night.

Kenny Golladay, Detroit Lions: It was hard not to notice the performance that Golladay put up versus the Jets on Monday. Golladay had 114 yards on seven receptions and was targeted 12 times. Yes, he had a big performance last season in Week One also before pretty much being forgotten about for the remainder of the season. But if the Lions can’t run the ball once again this season (they certainly couldn’t Monday), then Golladay may reach those heights expected of him when he was drafted.

Mohamed Sanu, Atlanta Falcons: It seems like the chemistry is not there yet between Matt Ryan and first-round pick Calvin Ridley. This could once again lead to Sanu being Ryan’s favorite target after Julio Jones. Yes, Ryan played poorly in Week One, especially in the red zone, but this is still a high-scoring offense.

Quincy Enunwa, New York Jets: The Jets don’t have a TE that could be a young QB’s security blanket. So, who might be rookie Sam Darnold’s first read on pass plays? Enter Quincy Enunwa. He’s not as flashy as Robby Anderson or has the hype that Terrelle Pryor once did, but he just might be the most reliable of the trio.

Tight End

Antonio Gates, Los Angeles Chargers: It really shouldn’t have shocked anyone that Gates returned to the Chargers once Hunter Henry suffered a torn ACL. It was just a matter of how much of training camp he wanted to miss. Well, he missed all of it. Still, he’s a huge target for Phillip Rivers, especially in the red zone.

Jonnu Smith, Tennessee Titans: Delanie Walker always seems to be an underrated TE come draft time, but that didn’t make his Fantasy owners feel any better about losing him for the season last week. What may have made them feel better is if they were able to grab Smith off the waiver wire. Smith isn’t Walker, but he’s a solid replacement if you were able to secure his services.

Defense/Special Teams

New York Jets: The Jet defenders came out and stated that they knew what the Lions offense was going to run last week before the play happened. Whether that was true or not, they performed very well. This week they get the Dolphins, who don’t have anywhere near the explosive passing offense that the Lions do. If they can keep Kenny Stills in check, they should be a solid streaming DST this week.
