Week 14 QB Streamers
Week 13 was unforgiving to those of us who are committed to streaming at the QB position. If Colin Kaepernick and others failed you last week, I suggest that you fervently mash the drop button to rid your roster of such filth and take a few deep cleansing breaths… Good. Once you have done that, take a look at some of these options for Week 14. This article focuses on players, available in many leagues, who are capable of producing start-worthy numbers. Our goal is to pluck these guys off the waiver wire and get at least 20 fantasy points or the equivalent to 250 passing yards and 2 scores.
Carson Wentz vs WAS (ESPN 30%, Yahoo 32%)
Get out your wooden stakes and cloves of garlic, we’re going to Wentz-sylvania. More importantly, the Redskins are going to Wentz-sylvania. Those same Redskins have given up 300 yards and multiple scores to every QB that have faced in the last month not named Dak Prescott. Additionally, Jordan Matthews should be back to pair with Ertz, giving Wentz enough options to take advantage of the matchup.

Andy Dalton @ CLE (ESPN 59.3%, Yahoo 71%)
We are pushing the ownership percentage a bit with this pick, but the Dalton owner in your league may have bailed once A.J. Green went down with an injury. Their loss could be your opportunity. Coming off a 333-yard performance, Dalton faces the Cleveland Browns this week. The last time he faced this squad he put up 308 passing yards and a pair of scores. Dalton should have no trouble carving up his division rival.

Trevor Siemian @ TEN (ESPN 10.6%, Yahoo 10%)
Before you do anything else, check to see if Jameis Winston is available in your league (ESPN 69.9%, Yahoo 81%). If you aren’t that lucky, then perhaps you can consider Trevor Siemian. Absence made the heart grow fonder for Siemian in Week 13 as Paxton Lynch showed that he is not yet ready to be an NFL QB. Siemian returns to take on the Titans who have given up an average of 31.5 fantasy points to opposing QBs over their last 6 games.
