At this point in the season, you’re looking for streamers because you’re dealing with injuries, right?  The bye weeks are over, and you’ve had 12 weeks now to find a suitable fill-in at quarterback, tight end and the pointless positions (kicker and defense).

If not, I mean you’re probably just playing DraftKings or FanDuel, because your regular season is over.

Let’s get to it…

Quarterbacks

Ryan Fitzpatrick (42 percent) at New York — It’s basically a home game for Fitzpatrick, as he takes on the Giants in the shared field.  Even taking out his 29-point performance last week, Fitzpatrick hasn’t scored less than 14 points all season, if you take out the game he got hurt in against the Raiders.  He’s been quite consistent, and should be again this week against a porous Giants’ defense.

Marcus Mariota (43 percent) vs. Jacksonville — My best call of the year was Week 1 with starting Mariota as a blind call.  While he may not reach four touchdowns this week, he has a great matchup against the Jaguars.  Mariota and Walker is one of my favorite plays this weekend in DFS, too.

How did I do last week?

Josh McCown: 13.68 fantasy points (left with injury).

Brian Hoyer: 14.90 fantasy points (sorry, the Hall of Fame has to wait).

 

Tight Ends

Kyle Rudolph (57 percent) vs. Seattle — I feel dirty even typing his name, but they’ve made it a point to get him more involved in the offense lately.  Couple that with the fact that the Seahawks are the fourth-worst team in fantasy against tight ends and he should be a borderline top 10 tight end.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins (26 percent) vs. Atlanta — Speaking of dirty, ASJ has done owners dirty all year, as his recovery from injury has taken way too long.  But, it finally looks as if his much-anticipated return will come this week against the Falcons, who allow the eight-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends.

How did I do last week?

Jacob Tamme: 9.40 fantasy points.

Crockett Gillmore: 3.50 fantasy points

 

Kicker/Special Teams Defense

Connor Barth (17 percent) vs. Atlanta — Still all-in on Barth.

Minnesota (36 percent) vs. Seattle — Despite last week, the Seahawks aren’t a good offense.  On the other side of the coin, though, the Vikings defense is legit.  Start them with confidence.

How did I do last week?

Connor Barth: 6 fantasy points.

Minnesota: 12 fantasy points.

    Would you go with Char West or Lamar Miller as RB2 this week? It is crucial I get it right because RB1 was Eddie Lacy. Ouch!
    As for FLEX, I’m going with Jarvis Landry. Would you prefer either West/Miller from above or Barnidge, Marvin Jones, Scott Chandler, or Antonio Andrews? Yeah, my team is garbage.

    • @Oliver: I’m going West over Miller. I’m going Landry at flex, but if you need an additional option, which is what I gather, I’m going Marvin Jones. I’m high on him this week with no Eifert. Flow chart for me goes Jones, Barnidge, Miller, Andrews, Chandler.

        @Waterloo: Thank you very much! I’ll give him a go against the lowly Browns.
