Fantasy Football Streamers Week 11: Josh Dobbs, Trey McBride, More

Finding the right fantasy football streamers at quarterback, tight end, defense and kicker has been a strategy I've successfully used for years.
I've parlayed that success into a series of weekly recommendations for the top streaming options at those three positions, as well as tight end, which can be of assistance in a pinch.

The concept behind streaming is that you add someone for a given week based on the matchup, rather than putting the emphasis behind a player's long-term projection.
I’m only highlighting players who are available in at least 40% of Yahoo! leagues. Please refer to my player rankings based on your league settings to see who is the best available player in your league.
Note: The optimal strategy for streamers is to add the player I have ranked the highest that is available in your specific league. I have no way of knowing who is the best option for your league, so I’m just highlighting the player I have ranked the highest that is available in more than 40% of leagues.
Use my rankings to see if there's a player who's available in your league and ranked higher than those mentioned below.
Dobbs is coming off of a top-five scoring week against the Saints, and he's only going to get more familiar with the Vikings' playbook and his teammates.
Speaking of Dobbs' teammates, he might be getting Justin Jefferson back this week, which gives him even more of a boost.
Dobbs has massive rushing upside, posting 7/66/1 and 8/44/1 lines in his two games with the Vikings.
In Week 11, he has a great matchup against the Broncos. Dobbs has snuck into my top-10 quarterbacks to start the week. He’s a great streaming option and might offer low-end QB1 value in the right matchups moving forward.
McBride is still available in 41% of leagues and is coming off an 8/131/0 against the Falcons in Kyler Murray’s return. His only bad game recently was against the Browns with Clayton Tune under center for Arizona.
In Week 10, the Cardinals were very pass-heavy, with the fourth-highest pass rate on early downs in neutral situations last week. That's a very good sign for the passing offense moving forward.
In Week 11, Arizona faces the Texans, who have allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends.
McBride opens Week 11 as my TE2 overall! He could end up a bit lower but is certainly a top-five option and needs to be added everywhere he's available.
Zach Ertz's potential return in a couple of weeks could ding McBride's stock a bit, but there’s still a chance he’s a solid TE1 option even once Ertz is back.
Sanders is available in a ton of leagues with Miami coming off its bye week. The Dolphins have the highest team total of the week at home against the Raiders, so he should see plenty of scoring opportunities.
The Commanders are the clear top add of the week as they face Tommy DeVito and the Giants. It’s a plus matchup, so I’m willing to overlook the fact Washington traded away a couple of key players on defense.
As always, a high ranking at defense doesn’t mean a team is a lock for a top-five score this week. Washington does grade highly in all of the predictive stats this week, though: points allowed and sacks.
There's a very good chance that the Commanders will provide you with an above-average score this week.
