Quarterback Streaming Options

QB Stream of the Week: Jameis Winston (TB) vs. Detroit (46.2% owned in ESPN leagues)
Winston is normally not a streaming candidate. But he’s available in over half of ESPN.com leagues, so consider this an exception. Detroit has allowed no less than 13.5 standard fantasy points to the quarterback position going all the way back to Week 5 — strong floor. They surrendered 20+ points in three of their last four outings — strong ceiling. Now Detroit goes on the road to Tampa Bay who has nothing to lose anymore. Expect lots of yards from a gunslinging Famous Jameis this week.

Eli Manning (NYG) vs. Dallas (29.5% owned in ESPN leagues)
Looks like Manning’s back on the menu, boys! Let’s ignore the complete tire fire that is the New York Giants organization, and look at the product on the field. Sterling Shepard is back, Engram is still a force, and one can’t help but imagine a shot of energy into a Giants squad with McAdoo gone and their spirit animal back under center. Manning has flashed big upside this year…and also big downside. But he is set up well this week at home against a farcical Dallas Cowboys defense.

DeShone Kizer (CLE) vs. Green Bay (3.3% owned in ESPN leagues)
Kizer has held his own, lately, as his wide receivers have slowly come back to him. He’s in a plus matchup at home against a crumbling Packers defense. Sprinkle in a little pinch of Josh Gordon fantasy magic dust, and you have yourself a tantalizing desperation play if you need one. There’s some risk of downside here, but the ceiling is mighty high for this cannon-armed rookie looking for his first NFL win.

Tight End Streaming Options

TE Stream of the Week: Cameron Brate (TB) vs. Detroit (57% owned in ESPN Leagues)
Stacking him with Winston, if I can. He’s not widely available, but you should look to see just in case. Detroit is the seventh worst team in the league against tight ends, and Brate is a red zone machine. Double check to see if he’s around, just in case.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (NYJ) vs. Denver (60% owned in ESPN Leagues)
Like Brate, he’s still avaialble in about 40% of leagues. Like Brate, he’s a red zone machine (the NFL has admitted that he’s had two touchdowns wrongly overturned in recent weeks). And, like Brate, ASJ has a prime matchup this week. The Broncos are second to last in the league at covering the tight end. Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse will not fly as free against the Broncos as they did against the Chiefs. This is finally the week for an ASJ rebound. You can count on it.

Ricky Seals-Jones (ARI) vs Tennessee (22% owned in ESPN leagues)
Maybe I’m a sucker for tight ends with two last names. I don’t know. What I do know is that Seals-Jones has emerged as a force over the last month. The Titans don’t pose a particularly juicy matchup — they’re middle of the pack against opponent tight ends — but Seals-Jones has done enough lately to warrant a spot on TE-needy rosters.
