3 Fantasy Football Quarterback Streaming Options for Week 5
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 Aaron Rodgers 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.
In Week 4, Baker Mayfield stumbled a bit in his first career start. Despite the favorable matchup at Oakland and his Browns putting up 42 points, Mayfield finished with just 12.8 fantasy points, which checked in 22nd at the position for the week. Through four weeks, our top streaming pick is averaging 17.23 fantasy points, a per-game clip that ranks 18th at the position.
If you're looking for some quarterback options from the waiver wire -- regardless of league size -- we have you covered. Here are three quarterbacks owned in fewer than roughly 30% of Yahoo leagues who are in a good spot this week.
