We are a couple of weeks away from the playoffs and every game counts now. This week I have some interesting streamers that could potentially help you win while we get through the final week of byes.
Jacoby Brissett (IND): The Colts face off against the Texans who have been horrible against the pass all year. They rank 29th against the pass and 27th against opposing quarterbacks. This is also an important game for both teams because they currently have the same record and both teams are looking to takeover 1st place in the division. I expect Brissett to come out firing and have a good game.
Derek Carr (OAK): The Raiders have been sneaky good this year and a lot has been based on the play of Derek Carr. He is starting to look like the Derek Carr of old and he should continue his surge this week against the New York Jets. They rank 22nd against opposing quarterbacks and 21st against the pass. The Jets are mediocre at best so I expect Carr to carve them up this week.
Cameron Brate (TB): Brate is finally starting to get looks his way. Last week he got a whopping 14 targets from Jameis. That was in a tough matchup as well. The Saints rank 10th against opposing tight ends and he still had 10 catches for 71 yards. This week he faces off against the Falcons who rank 26th against the pass and 15th against opposing tight ends. If he gets even half of the targets he got last week, he is in play this week as a sneaky good streamer option.
Dallas Goedert (PHI): I know you’re wondering why would he be a streaming option if they have Zach Ertz on their team. He is an option due to injuries. With multiple injuries to their receiving core, he has been in the game a lot. He even caught a touchdown last week and he had 50 yards on 3 catches. The volume isn’t the best but he has a good matchup against the Seahawks and he should be in the game a lot.
Younghoe Koo (ATL): The Falcons face off against the Bucs who ranked 32nd against opposing kickers mainly because their defense is atrocious. I expect the Falcons to put up a lot of points and Koo should benefit from that.
Austin Seibert (CLE): He gets a matchup against the Dolphins in a game I see the Browns scoring a lot. They also rank 31st against opposing kickers and for good reason. They give up a ton of points which means the kicker has plenty of opportunities. Fire him up this week.
Detroit Lions: They face off against the Redskins who have Haskins as their quarterback. Although I think he will eventually get it together, he has struggled mightily so far. I expect his struggles to continue this week.
Indianapolis Colts: The Colts defense has actually been playing well recently. They face off against the Texans who may be a tough matchup on paper but the Colts defense played well against them earlier in the year. I expect this to be a competitive game and I can see the Colts defense getting a few sacks and maybe a pick or two.
