Defense/Special Teams streaming has been a popular option for a while now for fantasy owners. But quarterback streaming has begun being put into use just recently, it seems. As the demand grows we must meet it with a supply of fantasy articles. Each week I’ll highlight several quarterbacks and defenses fantasy owners can pick up for that week to stream in their starting lineups. As the season progresses, more options will appear as teams and players are dropped and we discover who’s real and who’s not. If you have any questions about these picks or fantasy football in general, hit me up on Twitter @44AMiller.
Joe Flacco (ESPN 29 percent owned, Yahoo! 40 percent. Cleveland) – Flacco bounced back from a bad Week 1 to complete 21-of-29 passes for two touchdowns last week. While Flacco isn’t someone you’d want to roster throughout the year, this week is a perfect example of when you’d want to stream him. Cleveland has allowed three passing touchdowns and 602 yards while allowing a 67.5 completion percentage. That makes Cleveland the 13th-friendliest defense to opposing quarterbacks so far this season. With the re-emergence of Steve Smith, Flacco has three legitimate receiving options as well as red zone maven Owen Daniels. The Browns have been surprisingly feisty in their games so Flacco should see a good amount of attempts in this game.
