We are chugging along to Week 8 as the injuries and bye weeks continue to make streaming a fun challenge. Ben, Nate, and Robby have you covered in this week’s edition. Let’s jump right into our Week 8 Quarterback Streamers.
*Note: If you’re looking for a full waiver resource – check out the video at the end of this article.
Ben – Baker Mayfield (ESPN Roster %: 15%)
Baker had his best fantasy week of the year this past week against the Bengals and he looked great doing it. After starting out an abysmal 0/5 with a pick he put together an impressive total stat sheet, going for 22/23 & 5 TDs throughout the remainder of the game. Odell Beckham Jr. is out for the season, but the Browns aren’t at a loss for weapons and I expect other pass-catchers to step up. On top of this, he faces off against a Raiders team this week that has let up an average of 25 points per game to opposing quarterbacks so far this season. If you need a streamer this week, you can roll out baker; he’s got his mojo back.
Nate – Joe Burrow (ESPN Roster %: 49.5%)
Joe Burrow gets to play the Titans next week at home, and believe it or not, the 4-1 Titans give up the most points to fantasy quarterbacks in the league. Burrow has looked solid of late, especially after developing a nice chemistry with fellow-rookie Tee Higgins. The role change for A.J. Green has helped Burrow as well, giving him a reliable underneath option. I think that the Bengals will have to throw to keep up with Tennessee’s offense, and Burrow will take advantage of the great matchup by tossing at least two TDs.
Robby – Teddy Bridgewater (ESPN Roster %: 30.6%)
Theodore Bridgewater is a very matchup dependent quarterback. In three games against the Bucs, Chargers, & Bears, he scored less than 15 fantasy points in each. In all four of his other games, he has put up 19 points or more including his first game against Atlanta in Week 5. Atlanta is averaging 344 passing yards, 2.7 passing TDs, and 27.6 fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Teddy is a fantastic Week 8 quarterback streamers. Don’t overthink it.
