The boys are back to hit you with their Week 3 Quarterback Streamers article. Robby, Ben, and Nate give you their favorite QB streamers for you to target this week. After you see their picks, don’t forget to check out our in-depth Week 3 Waiver Wire Pickups article!
Ben – Gardner Minshew (ESPN rostered %: 19.3%)
Gardner was my streaming choice of the week for week two, and I’m holding steady with him as my week 3 QB streamer of choice. If you haven’t gotten the memo yet, Gardner Minshew is good at football. He has back to back 20+ fantasy point weeks and 3 touchdowns in each of the last two games. He beat a Colts team in week one that was an 8-point favorite and came just short against a good Titans team that was also favored. Minshew continues his campaign to fend off Trevor Lawrence at home vs. a beatable Dolphins team in week three, and he’ll be starting for me where I have him.
Nate – Ryan Tannehill (ESPN rostered %: 34.5%)
Despite not giving up a ton of passing yards against Indianapolis, the Vikings passing defense is not particularly good. Aaron Rodgers shredded them to pieces in Week 1, and the Colts rode their running game to victory in Week 2, which explains only 214 passing yards against. In week 3, the Vikings play Ryan Tannehill, who has been solid in 2020. Tannehill might get A.J. Brown back this week, and I like him to get at least two more passing touchdowns. He’s a solid streamer this week.
Robby – Daniel Jones (ESPN roster %: 48.7%)
Danny Dimes barely makes the 50% rostered cut off but I think many fantasy managers will be moving on from him after a ROUGH outing against Chicago where he only managed seven fantasy points. This might be going against the grain when an offense loses their top offensive weapon in Saquon Barkley and arguably their top wide receiver in Sterling Shepard. Despite that, I can’t ignore the injuries that the 49ers suffered on the defensive side of the football. Both starting cornerbacks (Richard Sherman and Jason Verrett) and both starting defensive ends (Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas) are either done for the season or highly unlikely to play against the Giants in Week 3. DJ has thrown at least 40 times in each of his first two games against tough competition in the Steelers and Bears secondaries. I’m streaming him for Week 3 as he takes on a 49ers team that will be limping into Week 3.
