Week 3 QB Streamers
Each and every week the Fantasy Footballers will provide you with a list of QBs that you can pluck off of the waiver wire and plug into your lineups. These QBs are available in 40% of leagues or more, with a goal of having that player give you 250 passing yards and 2 touchdowns, roughly 20 fantasy points.
Last season the Footballers Full Stream Ahead suggestions averaged out to be a Top 6 option on the season. This is an incredible asset considering the QBs in question are largely free in your leagues. You can check out the Full Stream Ahead Segment each week on Tuesday’s show.
Marcus Mariota vs. OAK (ESPN 52.6%, Yahoo 70%)
The QB who gets the face the Oakland Raiders figures to be featured in this article every week until further notice. The Raiders have given up 500 total yards of offense in EACH game this season. Opposing QBs have been the primary beneficiaries as Drew Brees logged an impressive 45 fantasy points against this unit, while Matt Ryan put up 33. Mariota may not achieve this level of success, but he should be in for a very solid afternoon.

Ryan Tannehill vs. CLE (ESPN 20.3%, Yahoo 29%)
On the heels of an incredible fantasy performance against the Patriots in which he posted almost 400 yards and 2 TDs, Tannehill gets a home matchup against the Cleveland Browns. Tannehill has plenty of weapons in the passing game to take advantage of this plus matchup with Jarvis Landry, a healthy DeVante Parker, and Kenny Stills who can’t keep dropping passes, can he? Expect a big day from Tannehill through the air, with the added bonus of the rushing yards he piles up on a weekly basis.

Matt Ryan @ NO (ESPN 48.1%, Yahoo 71%)
Matty Ice is heating up! He is the #1 QB in fantasy football headed into Week 3, and he figures to stay atop the QB ranks with a juicy matchup against the New Orleans Saints. In two games against the division rival, last season Ryan averaged 314.5 yards per game with 2 TDs. Julio Jones’ health should be monitored, but Ryan should have no problem continuing his success this week.

Joe Flacco @JAX (ESPN 26.3%, Yahoo 29%)
Joe Flacco gets an underwhelming Jaguars team this week in Baltimore. This season the Jaguars have allowed a league-worst 6 touchdown passes to opposing QBs to go along with a passer rating of 117.8. Enter Joe Flacco who has another week under his belt working with Mike Wallace and has Steve Smith, Breshad Perriman and Dennis Pitta all returning to form. With neither team boasting a tough defense, these two high powered offenses seem destined for a shootout in a game that clocks in with one of the highest over/unders for the week, at 47.
