Happy Thursday everyone! Don’t you worry your little hearts, your highly anticipated streamer article is here. Since the Streamer Department is newer staple here at Razzball, I want to try something a little different this week. 90% of the players I write about on here I’ve written about before. You can check those stats! In order to stop boring you or going too in-depth with the obvious about how great a player’s matchup is, I want to keep my player descriptions short. I also understand that all of these players are not available in every league, so I want to encourage you readers to ask more personally tailored questions in the comment section. Josh McCown isn’t available in your league, but Teddy Bridgewater and Geno Smith are? Gross! But you’re probably playing Bridgewater and saying your prayers. You don’t know what color to paint your living room? Seafoam green! This is why I’m here, and this is when your roster decisions matter most. So ask me, ask Jay, ask Smokey or ask your Grandma! The more input, the better chance we have of helping you win!
Josh McCown (21%) @ CAR : McCown has a good matchup vs Carolina’s secondary. He has proven his fantasy decency against the tougher opponents. Now, he gets an easier one. Consider McCown a safe play this week.
Jared Cook (30%) v ARI: Travis Kelce was open all over the field last week against the Cardinals, and Cook has the ability to do the same. Don’t expect a ton of targets, but he definitely has a chance to get in the endzone.
Scott Chandler (8%) v GB: This is not exactly a great matchup, but there will be a ton of passing in this game. Chandler is your high upside play this week.
Defense & Special Teams
New York Jets (4%) @ TEN: The Jets aren’t a high scoring defense, but they can keep the scoring low by controlling the run game. With Mettenberger out, Locker will be rusty. Perhaps that will finally translate into some points for the NYJ DST.
Nick Folk (19%) @ TEN: Quoting me from last week, “Tennessee allows a ton of scoring when opponents are at their 30 yard line and in.” They ended up allowing the most points in the kicking department last week, so I’m going to ride that wave.
Cairo Santos (17%) v OAK: I expect Oakland to give up quite a few scores this week, and Santos has been pretty reliable this season.
