Fantasy Football Quarterback Streaming Week 16: Joe Flacco Can Lead You to a Championship
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, took advantage of a stellar matchup and posted 25.04 fantasy points, checking in as the QB6 for Week 15. The good outing gives us a top-15 weekly performance in 11 of 15 weeks this season, including seven top-6 showings.
If you had played our top streaming pick each week, you'd have 273.36 points from your quarterback spot -- an average of 18.22 points per week. Going by points per game, that would give you the QB8 for the season, and it would be the QB6 if we count only passers who have played at least eight games.
If you're looking for some quarterback options from the waiver wire, then we have you covered. Here are three quarterbacks owned in less than 30% of Yahoo! leagues who are in a good spot this week.
