For most fantasy football leagues, this is it — championship weekend. With the uncertainty of COVID, the pool of capable players seems to change by the minute. As always and especially in the playoffs, it’s of utmost importance to at least be provided with a solid floor from your QB position. In what is likely the biggest week of the fantasy season, here are three streaming options that are reliable to bring home the title.
Read on for three QB fantasy football streamers that are worth consideration for Week 17. In some cases, one might still be able to claim these rushers off of waivers. In order to be included in the fantasy football QB streamers article, they must be rostered in less than 60 percent of ESPN leagues.
Fantasy Football Streamers | Week 17 QBs
Mac Jones | New England Patriots (vs JAX) (18.9%)
Mac Jones left much to be desired in Week 16 against the Buffalo Bills, only putting up five total points. This week, however, as he has virtually all season, Jones should again provide a solid floor. He will very rarely put up elite numbers, but he will also rarely lose you games, assuming he doesn’t face elite defenses.
In Week 17, Mac Jones faces off against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars have seen improvement recently but are still middle of the pack at best against fantasy football quarterbacks. In a must-win game for the Patriots, you know they’re going to come to play. The Patriots’ running game will be solid, but expect Jones to take some shots to keep the Jaguars defense on its heels.
Jared Goff | Detroit Lions at SEA (3.5%)
A lot of troubles with the Lions to start the season stemmed from them turning the ball over too much. Since the Week 9 bye, Jared Goff has taken care of the ball significantly better. In the past four games he’s played, Goff has only thrown two interceptions. He has paired that with throwing for scores more consistently as well, throwing for nine touchdowns during the same span.
Goff plays the Seattle Seahawks in Week 17. As seen by this entire season, especially last week with the Bears’ upset of the Seahawks, it’s not as tall of a task as it has been for the past decade. The Seattle defense is nothing to be afraid of and the Lions offense is the best it’s ever been. Seattle won’t struggle to score, so the Lions will need Goff to throw efficiently to stay in the game.
Tua Tagovailoa | Miami Dolphins at TEN (51.3%)
The Dolphins may have started 1-7, but Tua Tagovailoa is a big reason that they are right back in the AFC playoff hunt. Tagovailoa hasn’t been an elite quarterback by any stretch of the imagination, but he is producing consistently. He played okay against a solid New Orleans Saints defense and now has a matchup with a poor Tennessee Titans defense in Week 17.
The Titans defense ranks 23rd against opposing fantasy football quarterbacks this season. Tua will need to be involved in the game no matter how the game plays out making him a safe option. The Dolphins can’t afford to lose and, as long as Tagovialoa doesn’t force anything that isn’t there, he’ll be just fine. Seeing how he’s played in Miami’s seven-game win streak, he should do just that again.
