S.S. Streamboat Week 11 Edition

Welcome aboard for another voyage on the streamboat! As the bye weeks hit full force and managers are out here looking for wins, who can you look towards for help? Week 10 did some damage with streams as Cole Beasley, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Willie Snead lead the WR group. While Nyheim Hines, Rex Burkhead, Devontae Booker and Wayne Gallman helped round out the top 10 for RBs. The Bills, Bears, Giants and 49ers are on bye this week so there are not too many holes to fill. I am going to list 5 streamers (QB, RB, WR, TE, DEF) owned in less than 60% of Yahoo leagues.

 

QB 

Jameis Winston, New Orlean Saints 3%

VS. Atlanta Falcons

Almost all top QBs besides Josh Allen will be playing on Sunday so if you are playing the matchups look no further than this mouth watering NFC South showdown. Jameis Winston gets to face his old foes that he has his most career passing touchdowns against (25). Let’s face it Winston is no backup level replacement, the guy was 2nd in TD passes just last season for Tampa Bay. There is a reason the Saints brought him in after Drew Brees missed 5 games last season and they let Bridgewater hit the market. As Brees is set to miss some time Winston may be the answer to your playoff push, facing Atlanta(2x) and Denver in the next three weeks. 

RB

Salvon Ahmed, Miami Dolphins 9%

@ Denver Broncos

This one is a combination of opponent and opportunity. Josh Jacobs had a resurrection last week against Denver with 136 total yards and two touchdowns, while Vegas tallied two more on the ground for four on the day. Thus far we have seen the Dolphins use Gaskin on all three downs and 22 touches for Ahmed last Sunday make it aparent that will continue until he returns. In a game that the Dolphins should be leading I expect to again see a lot of Ahmed. 

WR

Jakobi Meyers, New England Patriots 48%

@ Houston Texans

After causing a lot of hype in the 2019 preseason, Meyers let a lot of people down after draft day and never really materialized in Brady’s last season at the helm. Fast forward to now and we may have the next Patriots possession receiver. Houston has allowed at least 260 passing yards in five of the last six games, with the lone game being Baker Mayfield in the 10-7 barnburner last week. While the quarterback play certainly isn’t the same as the past, totaling at least 5 catches and 58 yards in the last three games on 31 targets is hard to ignore.

TE

Dalton Schultz, Dallas Cowboys 16%

@ Minnesota Vikings

Schultz has certainly been underwhelming from an expectation standpoint after his hot start with Dak. But with that bar being high so early he is still a rookie in an offense with a lot of mouths to feed. He has averaged 6 targets his last 4 games and Andy Dalton is on track to return against a defense allowing 8 yards per attempt and the 13 most points to tight ends. The Vikings just goosed Jimmy Graham but I think Dalton will lean on Schultz to keep his floor safe. 

Bonus:

Los Angeles Chargers vs. NYJ 45%
