Fantasy Football Quarterback Streaming Week 12: On Board With Jacoby Brissett
Quarterback streaming isn't for everyone, but if you're in a standard league -- like a 10- or 12-team league that features just one starting signal caller -- grabbing productive quarterbacks who have good matchups off the waiver wire is often doable.
Sure, you won't have the luxury of setting it and forgetting it with Russell Wilson as your quarterback, but when the top-end signal-callers draw a tough matchup, their upside can be matched by a waiver-wire option in a more favorable situation.
Blake Bortles, our top streaming pick a week ago, finished with a measly 8.56 fantasy points -- with the poor weather in Cleveland not helping things -- and checked in as the QB24 for Week 11. It was our second straight dud, but we've still delivered a top-15 weekly performance in 8 of 11 weeks this season, including five top-six showings.
If you had played our top streaming pick each week, you'd have 198.56 points from your quarterback spot -- an average of 18.05 points per week. Going by points per game, that would give you the QB10 for the season, ahead of Drew Brees, Marcus Mariota, Ben Roethlisberger and Matt Ryan.
If you're looking for some quarterback options from the waiver wire, then we have you covered. Here are three quarterbacks available in roughly 70% of Yahoo! leagues who are in a good spot this week.
