Fantasy Streamers: Best Defense, Kicker, QB & TE To Add In A Pinch

Streaming quarterback, kicker and defense has been a strategy I’ve used successfully for years.

I’ve parlayed that success into a series of weekly recommendations of the top streaming options at those three positions as well as tight end — a position I don’t recommend streaming week-to-week, though still offer recommendations for fantasy players who may need a short-term rental.

Here are this season’s results through Week 9:

  • Defense: DEF2
  • Quarterback: QB10
  • Kicker: K12
  • Tight end: TE14

Now without further ado, let’s go streaming!

Week 10 Defense Streamer

Eagles vs. Giants

Daniel Jones is a human sack/turnover machine.

The Eagles open up the week as my No. 2 ranked defense and are the top streaming option for Week 10.

Week 10 QB Streamer

Raiders QB Derek Carr vs. Broncos

It’s another rough week for streaming QBs. No one inside my initial top 12 is available in most leagues. Jared Goff is available in 63% and should be your preferred streamer if he’s on your waiver wire. He’s my QB7 in what should be a high-scoring game against the Seahawks, so I would bid a few FAAB to obtain him this week. 

Derek Carr opens up the week as my QB12. He has a matchup against the Broncos with an improved outlook if both A.J. Bouye and Bryce Callahan are out again.

It’s only a matter of time until Henry Ruggs erupts for a ceiling game, and we will want to have Carr when that happens. There’s no need to spend any FAAB as he should be easy to add this week. If Bouye and Callahan appear likely to play and/or another QB becomes a better streaming option, I will have Updated Streamers on Saturday.

Week 10 Kicker Streamer

Editor’s note: With rain and wind forecasted in Green Bay, Packers kicker Mason Crosby is no longer Sean Koerner’s recommended streamer — instead, Cardinals kicker Zane Gonzalez has emerged as Koerner’s K1 and is available in 50% of leagues as of Saturday night.

Packers K Mason Crosby vs. Jaguars

Crosby opens the week as my top kicker.

The Packers have the highest team total this week and are 14-point favorites, which means Crosby should see plenty of scoring opportunities against the Jaguars.

Week 10 TE Streamer

Bears TE Jimmy Graham vs. Vikings

Graham opens up the week as my TE8. He is a good bet every week to score a TD (he has five on the season) as one of Nick Foles’ top red-zone weapons.

Graham has seen 5+ targets in seven straight games, which has helped establish a solid floor for weeks in which Graham doesn’t find the end zone. 

(Note: If Eagles TE Dallas Goedert is available, he’s a must-add.)
