Week 9 QB Streamers
Whether you are fully invested in the streaming strategy or just need a bye week plug ‘n’ play guy, the 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.
Colin Kaepernick vs NO (ESPN 8.0%, Yahoo 7%)
If you just can’t stand to start a QB with a low floor, then Kaepernick can be your guy. Kaepernick’s rushing numbers provide owners with a safe baseline since 40 rushing yards is the fantasy equivalent to 100 yards passing. Additionally, the 49ers get a date with the New Orleans Saints who have given up 286.7 passing yards per game, 4th most in the league.

Sam Bradford vs DET (ESPN 15.0%, Yahoo 7%)
The last two weeks for Sammy Biscuits have left a stale taste in owners mouths. However, those matchups were both on the road against top half passing defenses (PHI and CHI). This week Bradford gets a home matchup with the Detroit Lions who have been suspect in their pass coverage, even with CB Darius Slay in the lineup. Look for Bradford to bounce back this week as the Vikings offense, that has struggled to run the ball, will need to get it done through the air.

Ryan Tannehill vs NYJ (ESPN 15.7%, Yahoo 22%)
This selection is simple. The Jets secondary is bad. The fewest yards they have allowed to an opposing QB is 225. They have also surrendered 4 multi-TD games. Tannehill has the weapons (Landry, Parker, Stills) to take advantage of this defense, especially now that they also have to respect the Miami rushing attack given the emergence of Jay Ajayi.
