Fantasy Football: Week 8 QB Streamers
Whether you are fully invested in the streaming strategy or just need a bye week plug ‘n’ play guy, the Fantasy Footballers are here to help with starting options you can find on the waiver wire. In order to be eligible for this segment, a player must be available in at least 40% of leagues, with a goal of scoring at least 20 fantasy points, which works out to be 200-250 passing yards and 2 TDs depending on the scoring system. Always remember to check your league’s waiver wire, you may have even better options available to you. Check out all of today’s podcast or jump straight to today’s QB Streaming segment on YouTube.
Tyrod Taylor vs OAK
It’s another home matchup for Tyrod Taylor against a very beatable Raiders defense. Taylor is a very safe streamer right now with his rushing floor.

Andy Dalton vs IND
Let’s be honest. Dalton looked BAD last week. Well he still threw two TDs in that game against Pittsburgh. Andy Dalton can certainly still get it done and is a viable option this week at home against the Colts. Mike likens Dalton to a chocolate covered grasshopper.

Josh McCown vs ATL
The Jets are surprising everyone. 2, 2, 3. Those are McCown’s passing TDs over the past three weeks. His receiving corps with Jermaine Kearse, Jeremy Kerley, and Austin Seferian-Jenkins continue to be underestimated. In a solid matchup, McCown is a solid streaming option.
