Week Eleven Fantasy Football Streamers: QB, TE, K And DST

Week Eleven Fantasy Football Streamers: Quarterbacks, Kickers, And DST

All offseason, we told you here at RotoExperts that you could find fantasy football streamers at quarterback, kicker, tight ends and defense/special teams. Of course, the implicit part of that agreement is that we would help you FIND said quarterbacks, kickers, tight ends and defenses! We have had quite a successful year with streaming suggestions and hope to keep that positive momentum.

Streaming has been pretty successful for us and we have seen a few players (Josh Allen, Jacoby Brissett, Gerald Everett, and Zane Gonzalez) go from streaming options to bonafide fantasy football starters which is the whole point of streaming in the first place!

The RotoExperts rankings and projections will guide you in making streaming and start/sit decisions, and the RX staff will be in the Daily Roto slack to answer questions for RotoExperts subscribers as well.

Streaming Notes: All players in this weekly column will be under 50% owned in Yahoo! Fantasy Football. A given player might be owned in your league but is not owned in all leagues. FAAB bids will be listed during the regular season but you know your league better than I do. FAAB dollars are also worth more the earlier they are spent in the calendar, so keep that in mind while streaming QB/K/TE/DST. 

Week Eleven Fantasy Football Streamers

Week Eleven Quarterback Fantasy Football Streamers

Kyle Allen– The Falcons have been one of the best defensive matchups for any offense to face this season. They have given up 27 or more points in over half of their games and the only team they truly shut down was…the New Orleans Saints? Last week’s blip aside, the Falcons have allowed the fourth-most net-adjusted yards per attempt, the eighth-most total yards per play and rank dead last in the NFL in terms of expected points against the pass on defense. While Kyle Allen hasn’t been Cam Newton, he has been serviceable enough and is throwing the ball to DJ Moore, Curtis Samuel, Christian McCaffrey and Greg Olsen. You really aren’t going to find a more perfect spot for a QB streamer this week.

Nick Foles– Foles is returning to the starting lineup for the Jaguars and he is returning to an offense that actually has a good mix of pass-catchers with Dede Westbrook, DJ Chark and Chris Conley. The matchup against the Colts isn’t the best in the world (Indy is about league average in terms of expected points on defense) but in back to back weeks they have lost to the Steelers and Dolphins which would suggest some cracks in the teams’ armor. Jacksonville is also one of the pass-heaviest teams near the redzone of any team in the NFL and have 14 (!!!) passing touchdowns to only one rushing touchdown. We prefer Kyle Allen by a good margin but Foles is not the worst bottom of the barrel play.

If You Are Desperate: Ryan Finley

Week Eleven Kicker Fantasy Football Streamers

Ka’imi Fairbairn- The Ravens/Texans game is expected to be one of the highest-scoring of the week with a 50-point total. The Texans are slight dogs in this game which breaks our usual rule of preferring the favored kicker but Fairbairn is also one of the best kickers in fantasy and is attached to one of the best offenses in the NFL. Fairbairn has two or more field goals attempted in each of his last three games and is also attached to an offense that provides a plethora of extra point opportunities.

Robbie Gould/Chase McLaughlin– Whoever starts for the 49ers out of Gould or McLaughlin is a top kicker option this week. No team has a higher team total the 49ers and Gould has THREE separate four field attempt games. That is craziness from a kicker position; he is getting even more opportunities than guys like Will Lutz and Harrison Butker. Gould is likely dropped in your league and if he returns this week from injury, you should not hesitate to pick him up and start him.

Week Eleven Tight End Fantasy Football Streamers

Darren Fells – If you do not have one of the alphas at tight end, you probably hate whoever you are starting. Darren Fells has only 31 targets on the year but has scored six touchdowns. The return of Will Fuller dings his usage a little bit but the fact remains that Fells is a 70% or more snaps player for an offense that is one of the five best passing offenses in football. He has six touchdowns and is fourth on the Texans in targets. He is a real part of their offense and is one of the highest-scoring games of the week and the Texans are projected to be trailing as well.

Noah Fant – Since Emmanuel Sanders was traded to the 49ers Fant has had five, nine and four targets. He had a 75-yard touchdown in the Broncos last game against Cleveland that demonstrated why myself and others were so excited about him as a prospect. He has prime-Jimmy Graham level athleticism and long speed and is now functionally the second wide receiver in the Broncos offense. The Vikings have a good overall defense but have been burned by wide receivers over the last few weeks which just demonstrates the power of the forward pass. Fant is a really sneaky upside play at TE this week.

If You Are Desperate: Tyler Eifert

Week Eleven Defense/Special Teams Fantasy Football Streamers

Structural DST Streaming Philosophy: The core tenants of finding a good streaming defense are finding a home defense that is going to face a lot of passing attempts. While your league settings might differ, in general, what we are chasing is sacks, turnovers and the main goal is finding DST touchdowns. DST touchdowns happen most often on passing plays as opposed to rushing plays.

Oakland Raiders – One of the best insights I could ever impart to you readers is this: teams that are tanking vs teams that are trying very hard is a great situation for fantasy. The Bengals organization would be very upset if they somehow won this game against the Raiders. The Raiders would be devastated if they somehow lost this home game against the Bengals. Cincy gave up last week when they were down in the second half, choosing instead to rush Joe Mixon 30 times against Baltimore. The ceiling here for the Raider is high (Ryan Finley is a pick-six machine) but the floor as a home defense against an incompetent offense is high as well.

New York Jets-  Dwayne Haskins this season, has thrown 44 pass attempts and started one game. He has been sacked eight times and been intercepted four times. Washington has gained only 15 total first downs over his appearances. Maybe Haskins will get better with a new coach, maybe he will figure it out. As of right now, he is likely the worst starting quarterback in the NFL and is playing against a defense that is designed to make him throw. The Jets do not have a good passing defense but they do have a good rushing defense. That design will move the Washington offense into an uncomfortable position in which they are forced to throw more often which creates more chances for DST fantasy points.

If You Are Desperate: Miami Dolphins
