With three of the four teams on bye this week being the Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns and Tennessee Titans, you likely won’t be losing too much at the quarterback position. If you have Aaron Rodgers, however, their bye week couldn’t have come at a worse time. With wins becoming all but necessary at this point, you can’t expect to win without a solid quarterback leading your fantasy team. With the playoffs, or possibly major seeding implications on the line, here are three quarterback fantasy football streamers you can trust this week.
Read on for three QB fantasy football streamers that are worth consideration for Week 13. In some cases, one might still be able to claim these rushers off of waivers. In order to be included in the fantasy football RB streamers article, they must be rostered in less than 60 percent of ESPN leagues.
Fantasy Football Streamers | Week 13 QBs
Carson Wentz | Indianapolis Colts at HOU (44.1%)
Carson Wentz has quietly had a very good season this year. Unfortunately for Wentz, it seems like nobody is paying attention looking at how few leagues he’s rostered in. Wentz has thrown 21 touchdowns to just five interceptions this season. Outside of a dumb mistake or two last week, Wentz was carving up the Tampa Bay Buccaneers secondary. This week, Wentz has a fantastic matchup against the Houston Texans that you’ll want to capitalize on.
The Houston pass defense isn’t horrible, but it’s not very good either. The 20th-ranked defense against quarterbacks will struggle with Wentz and this hot Colts offense the entire game. The only question mark surrounding Wentz this week is whether or not the game will get out of hand too quickly. With Carson Wentz posting two or more touchdowns in seven of the past nine weeks, there shouldn’t be too much to worry about.
Taylor Heinicke | Washington Football Team at LV (21.8%)
Taylor Heinicke was far from lights out against the Seahawks on Monday night. With that being said, he was still extremely efficient. Although he threw an unfortunate and extremely unlucky interception, he completed over 77% of his pass attempts. In fact, over the past three weeks, the lowest completion percentage he’s had is 72.7% against a solid Carolina Panthers secondary.
This week, Washington has a date with the Las Vegas Raiders in Sin City. Not only can we expect Heinicke to stay as efficient as he’s been since the bye, but we can expect him to have more opportunities at the end zone as well. Tight end Logan Thomas is back and he was sorely missed by this Washington offense. While Ricky Seals-Jones did well in his absence, there was a clear dip in the offense once Thomas was injured. With his top red zone threat back against an average at best defense, Heinicke is a solid fantasy football streamer.

Teddy Bridgewater | Denver Broncos at KC (19.3%)
Admittedly, Teddy Bridgewater has had a rough go the past two weeks. Against the Eagles, he was efficient but failed to score, and against the Chargers, he got hurt and had to leave early. Assuming he’s healthy enough to go, Bridgewater has the perfect antidote for his mini slump. The Denver Broncos matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night.
To be fair to the Chiefs, their defense has made strides over the last few weeks. Even with such improvements, however, they still find themselves 29th against fantasy football quarterbacks, and Bridgewater is a hard quarterback to stop. While Bridgewater doesn’t have the incredible talent that other quarterbacks do, he will rarely kill your team, which is what will make him hard to stop. Against the Chiefs suspect secondary, Bridgewater should be able to pick up a couple of big plays, while avoiding mistakes which makes him a great start in Week 13.
