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

Week Thirteen 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, Jack Doyle, 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 Thirteen Fantasy Football Streamers

Week Thirteen Quarterback Fantasy Football Streamers

Ryan Tannehill– Would you like a list of all the quarterbacks who have scored more fantasy points than Ryan Tannehill since he become the Titans starter?

Lamar Jackson.

That is it. Tannehill has been doing this on unsustainable efficiency but he has a few things going for him that make us like him as a starter again this week. The first is the most important thing with all fantasy quarterbacks: he runs! He has three rushing touchdowns and a two-point conversation over the Titans last three games. The second is that this Titans offense actually has a lot of good players. Corey Davis, A.J Brown, Jonnu Smith and Derrick Henry is a talented surrounding cast. Start him with confidence at Indianapolis.

Sam Darnold– Sam Darnold has been playing so well that we have all mostly forgot about him seeing ghosts! The Jets have now scored over 30 points in each of their last three games and Le’Veon Bell has played his season-low in snaps for two straight weeks. Darnold has made Jamison Crowder and Ryan Griffin must-roster fantasy names and now he will be playing the mega-tanking Cincinnati Bengals who have a bottom-five DVOA defense. As long as the Jets maintain this pass-heavy and aggressive offense, Darnold will be a borderline starter in fantasy.

If You Are Desperate: Nick Foles

Week Thirteen Kicker Fantasy Football Streamers

Zane Gonzalez- Somehow, Gonzalez keeps getting thrown back to the waiver wire. Considering he just had games against the 49ers and then his bye week, I do suppose that I understand why he would be out there. Zane is fifth in the NFL in fantasy points for kickers and has better weekly opportunity than even Butker/Lutz/Maher (the elite tier). This home game for the Rams should be a cakewalk and checks off most of our important kicker opportunity boxes.

Jake Elliot– Watching the Philadelphia Eagles play is TOUGH and the fact that they have one of the three highest team totals this week does kind of blow my mind. However, the Dolphins have been a layup for opposing fantasy kickers all year long even when the games take place outdoors (we prefer indoors kickers). Elliot is not really a fantasy stud playing in this Eagles offense but with Alshon Jeffery back this week and no more Jordan Matthews targets, we should expect a different picture on offense for Philadelphia.

Week Thirteen Tight End Fantasy Football Streamers

Jack Doyle – No Eric Ebron (placed on the injured reserve after playing his season-high in snaps), a banged up T.Y Hilton, no Marlon Mack and this is what we get. Doyle should be in line to play over 80% of the Colts snaps in their upcoming game against the Titans and likely for each game for the rest of the year. He is not a special athlete and the Colts are not a pass-first team but just being on the field as much as Doyle has utility at a position that has allowed only one player to score more than 40 fantasy points over the last month of the season.

Mike Gesicki – With Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant likely not playing this upcoming week (or for the rest of the season), Gesicki is inline to be the second-leading receiver on the Dolphins. He has at least six targets in each of the Dolphins last four games and has played over 86% of the team’s snaps in each of their last two games. It feels gross to be targeting secondary options on the Dolphins but the tight end position is so bare right now than an eight-point projection makes him a top 12 option in a given week.

If You Are Desperate: Jonnu Smith

Week Thirteen 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.

New York Jets – The Jets were definitely a better streamer when Ryan Finley was the starter and not Andy Dalton but they remain a starting option this week. The Bengals have turned the ball over the fourth-most times in the NFL this season and have given up the fourth-most total sacks. Even with Dalton at the helm, they just are not any good. The Jets should be playing with a lead in this game even in Cincinnati which increases their value as a streamer.

Green Bay Packers –  Daniel Jones is now tied with Jameis Winston for the worst turnover rate of any quarterback active in the NFL right now. He has at least one turnover in EVERY game he has started this season and has multiple turnovers in five of his starts. You can think whatever you want about his future as a prospect but the fact is right now, he is a gift for streaming defenses.

If You Are Desperate: Kansas City
