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

Week Twelve 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 Twelve Fantasy Football Streamers

Week Twelve Quarterback Fantasy Football Streamers

Jacoby Brissett– The fact that Brissett is still out there in over 60% of fantasy football leagues is pretty surprising to me. He has been one of the 12 best quarterbacks in fantasy football on a per-game basis and is going to get a boost this week playing the Texans. First, Houston has one of the worst secondaries in the NFL and has given up 41 points to the Ravens, 24 points to the Raiders and 30 points to this same Colts team over the last month. We also are projecting a slight uptick in Brissett’s rushing workload with Marlon Mack sidelined for the foreseeable future. There is no question, Brissett is the top streaming option of the week in any format.

Sam Darnold– Yes, that Sam Darnold. He threw four touchdown passes last week and I think at this point has proved that in cake matchups, he is able to be trusted in fantasy. The Raiders have the worst pass rush in the NFL (fewest pressures, lowest adjusted sack rate) and they are traveling across the country for a west-to-east game in which the Jets have a healthy team total of 24. The Jets have now scored over 30 points in each of their last two games and Le’Veon Bell played his season-low in snaps last week against Washington. For whatever reason, it took until Week 11 for the organization to realize that they have to see what they have in Darnold now and he is proving that he has some tools in his locker. I don’t think Darnold has the same upside of some of the other streamers that we’ve had this year (like Daniel Jones) but he feels like a safe 16 points.

If You Are Desperate: Jeff Driskel

Week Twelve Kicker Fantasy Football Streamers

Younghoe Koo- The highest total of the week? Check. Four field goal attempts per game in a limited sample? Check. Playing as a home favorite? Check. Playing indoors? Check. Literally, everything you would dream up to have the perfect streaming kicker is there for Younghoe Koe. If you have Harrison Butker (on a bye) or Brett Maher (playing the Patriots), I think you can drop them for Koo this week. The only kicker that I would not drop for Koo is Will Lutz and even then, I think it is sort of close. He is the top kicking streaming option we have had for weeks.

Austin Seibert– Seibert is owned a very small percentage of leagues (even though Koo is out there a vast majority of leagues) and is the next-best option after Younghoe. The Dolphins have allowed 30 or more points to their opposition in over half their games this season. They have allowed the 25th most field goals against and are playing as massive road dogs to the Browns this week. While Seibert has to play outdoors, he meets all the same checkboxes that we want out of our kickers: home favorites against mismatched opposition.

Week Twelve Tight End Fantasy Football Streamers

Dallas Goedert – With Alshon Jeffrey out and DeSean Jackson on IR, Goedert is essentially a starting receiver in the Eagles offense. He has played 81%, 79%, and 75% of the Eagles snaps over the last three games while being targeted 16 times over those three games. He is fourth in total on the team in target share and third on the team when you exclude the injured Alshon Jeffrey who is not expected to play this weekend. Goedert is the top streaming tight end of the week in one of the more-enticing fantasy games of the week against Seattle though will be dinged from a playing time/projection standpoint if Alshon is active.

Noah Fant – Since Emmanuel Sanders was traded to the 49ers Fant has had five, nine, four and 11 (!!!) targets. He had a 30% target share from Brandon Allen last week and is clearly second in the passing pecking order now. The biggest shift in Broncos offense has been the running backs moving from a 25% to a 9% target share with the change in quarterbacks. Allen has been much more comfortable taking the deep shots than Flacco was. Fant is a 99th percentile SPARQ athlete and now appears to have an every-down role in this offense. Even in a gross, low-total game, Fant is a top-10 tight end option this week with his stable volume.

If You Are Desperate: Ryan Griffin

Week Twelve 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.

Detroit Lions – I would play the Miami Dolphins defense against Dwayne Haskins. I might even play the Alabama Crimson Tide defense against Haskins. In his short career, Haskins has thrown five interceptions and fumbled twice while taking 14 sacks to only 79 passing attempts. To say that is only bad would be quite charitable to the Ohio State product. It is not all his fault, as he is playing under a hapless head coach in a mostly untalented offense. The Lions are bad at any defensive metric you would want to pull but the fact that they are playing Haskins and Washington makes them an appealing option.

Denver Broncos –  Despite the unideal circumstances (traveling as a road dog to a winning team), Denver is still a legit play this week. They are 10th in the NFL in expected points, hurry the QB on 11% of drop backs, have allowed the fourth-fewest passing yards in total and have the seventh-best per play rush defense. All of this is to say, against a high-variance, turn0ver-prone QB like Josh Allen, they have the talent and scheme to suggest that they are a usable fantasy defense this week.

If You Are Desperate: New York Jets
