Every year, some bye weeks hit harder than others. At the surface, fantasy football Week 8 isn’t too problematic as only two teams are on bye. When it comes to quarterbacks though, this will be a tough week, as both the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers find themselves with a free Sunday. If you’re looking to replace Patrick Mahomes or Justin Herbert, or if you’re just done with your current quarterback, we have you covered in this fantasy football Week 8 QB streamers article.
Read on for three fantasy football Week 8 QB streamers that are worth consideration. In some cases, one might still be able to claim these quarterbacks off of waivers. In order to be included in the fantasy football Week 8 QB streamers article, they must be rostered in less than 60 percent of ESPN leagues.
Fantasy Football Streamers for Week 8
Fantasy Football Week 8 QB Streamers
Andy Dalton Fantasy Streamer vs LV (2.2%)
After a tough showing by Andy Dalton last Thursday, where he ended the game with multiple interceptions, the New Orleans Saints have named him as the starter once again in Week 8. This may come as a surprise for many, which is why he is virtually unowned in fantasy football leagues. However, his control of the offense does give the Saints the best opportunity to win, and he played much better than his stats showed last week.
This week, the New Orleans Saints matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders have the worst defense in the league against opposing fantasy quarterbacks. Dalton has a stable floor against a Raiders team that has trouble forcing turnovers.
Daniel Jones Fantasy Streamer at SEA (56.2%)
Daniel Jones is currently QB9 thanks to an incredible 28-point performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week. Even before that game, while his numbers weren’t often spectacular, his floor is as solid as any. Jones has never scored less than 13 points and has scored over 20 points twice.
In past seasons, the reason Jones failed to put up great fantasy numbers had been due to turnovers. This season, it’s been due to an inability for him to score many touchdowns. In Week 8, that should change against a bad Seattle Seahawks defense. Seattle’s defense is ranked 22nd against quarterbacks and Jones should easily be able to find the end zone at least once. Jones averages over 18.5 fantasy points when he finds the end zone at least once so assuming he’s able to do that, he’ll be a great fantasy football streamers option.

Taylor Heinicke Fantasy Streamer at IND (7.8%)
Although Taylor Heinicke should be the last streamer you ride with on this list, that doesn’t mean he can’t hold value in Week 8. While it’s tough to get a feel for his fantasy relevance after one game, there were definitely plenty of positives to take from his Week 7 performance over the Green Bay Packers.
Heinicke put up a modest 14 points against the Packers’ sixth-ranked defense. In Week 8, he faces off against an Indianapolis Colts defense that ranks 13th against opposing quarterbacks. Heinicke didn’t show it last week, but he does have the running ability to rack up some yards on the ground. Against a lesser defense this week in an indoor stadium, there should be no reason Heinicke can’t at least put up similar numbers yet again.
