Week 2 Quarterback Streamers
Ben – Gardner Minshew (ESPN Rostered %: 14.9)
Gardner’s play on Sunday was almost as electric as his personality. Eight point underdogs coming into the game, Minshew took control and made a statement. He looked confident, made good reads, and flashed his play-making ability. He finished the game an astounding 19/20 with three TDs. The Titans have a powerful offense led by Ryan Tannehill (still feels weird to say) and Derrick Henry but their defense isn’t elite, despite the addition of Jadeveon Clowney. This game could end up being a higher-scoring affair than it’s given credit for as Minshew continues to make his case for why he should be the Jaguars franchise quarterback.
Nate – Jared Goff (ESPN Rostered %: 42.1)
Goff looked solid in Week 1 against an above-average Dallas defense. Dallas’s strength is in their front seven, yet Goff was only sacked once. This bodes well for Goff (and the Rams as a whole) because most of LAR’s offensive issues in 2019 stemmed from poor offensive line play. Instead, the Rams’ OL only allowed one sack and two QB hits, while run blocking for 153 yards. Resultantly, Goff was efficient and just needed some passing TDs to make his fantasy day appetizing in week 1. I think he gets those passing TDs against the Eagles. Start Goff with confidence.
Robby – Phillip Rivers (ESPN Rostered %: 18.8)
Rivers threw 46 times for 363 yards in a game that he wasn’t trailing in until 3:46 left in the 4th quarter. We heard the smash-mouth football narrative all off-season and Frank Reich came out and had his QB sling it FORTY-SIX times. Very bizarre. We probably won’t see that again, but I do think Rivers sees success against a Minnesota Vikings team that was just absolutely shredded by Aaron Rodgers. As long as the Colts’ offensive line is healthy and can keep Rivers upright, he should have no problem finding his pass-catchers. This now apparently includes “plodder” Jonathan Taylor who had the second-most catches and receiving yards behind Parris Campbell.
