The time has come for all fantasy owners dreams. The “Fantasy Super Bowl”. If you were fortunate to make it this far, obviously you should keep doing whatever got you to this point but for this week I have some streamers that would potentially help out your lineup.
Ryan Fitzpatrick (MIA): Fitzmagic is alive and kicking. This week he faces off against the Cincinnati Bengals who have been horrible all year. They rank 24th against opposing quarterbacks and 15th against the pass. I expect this to be a crapshoot and the Dolphins should come out on top this week although that isn’t saying much. Fitzpatrick this week has a high ceiling against a vulnerable Bengals secondary.
Gardner Minshew (JAX): Minshew hasn’t been stellar all year but he is durable. This week he faces off against the Atlanta Falcons who rank 28th against opposing quarterbacks and 23rd against the pass. This should be a high scoring game which means fantasy galore. Since the Jaguars have nothing to play for, I expect them to pass the ball a lot against this weak secondary.
James Washington (PIT): I was really high on Washington at the beginning of the year but due to injuries, he has started to step up. Last week against the Bills he was targeted 11 times against a very tough defense. This week he faces thee New York Jets who is nowhere near the level of the Bills. They rank 23rd against opposing wide receivers and 19th against the pass. The Steelers look to maintain their wildcard spot so I expect them to come out firing. This bodes well for Washington because he should receive plenty of targets.
Cameron Brate (TB): The Bucs have a plethora of injuries at their receiving core and this bodes well for Cameron Brate. He received 7 targets last week and I expect that to hit double digits this week. The Texans also struggle against tight ends. They rank 25th against opposing tight ends and 28th against the pass. I expect this game be a shootout and we all know Winston isn’t afraid to throw the ball. Brate sets up to be a great streamer this week.
Dallas Goedert (PHI): The Eagles are in the same position as the Bucs because of injuries. They have only a few legitimate options to throw to. Goedert is one of them. The Cowboys rank 26th against opposing tight ends. Back in week 7 when both teams met, Goedert posted a line of 4 catches for 69 yards and 1 touchdown. I expect something very similar to that this week. Goedert sets up to be a great streamer this week.
Jason Sanders (MIA): I expect this game to produce a lot of points which means fantasy points for Sanders. The Bengals rank 28th against opposing kickers. Sanders should get a lot of opportunities this week.
Ka’imi Fairbairn (HOU): The Texans faceoff against the Bucs who have been horrible all year on defense which means the Texans should score a lot. The Bucs rank 32nd against opposing kickers which bodes well for Fairbairn. I expect him to be a top 5 kicker this week in fantasy.
Denver Broncos: They face off against the Detroit Lions who look horrible last week against the Bucs who have a mediocre defense. The Broncos actually have a good defense and I expect to see that this Sunday. Expect to see multiple turnovers and sacks.
