- Need to fill in a spot on your fantasy roster for the upcoming NFL weekend?
- Sean Koerner finds the best fantasy football streaming targets for Week 10 at quarterback, tight end, kicker and defense.
Don’t underestimate the value of streaming in fantasy.
Streaming quarterbacks, kickers and defenses each week allows you to take advantage of the best available options. And if you missed out on a high-caliber tight end in drafts, you can even stream that position with some success.
Each week I highlight the best streaming options at all four of those positions. Here’s how those recommendations would rank with each position through three weeks:
- Quarterback: QB8 (166.22)
- Tight End: TE21 (46.5)
- Kicker: K2 (86)
- Defense: DEF2 (112)
Now let’s dig into my top fantasy streaming options at quarterback, tight end, kicker and defense for Week 10.

Week 10 Fantasy Football Streaming Targets
QB: Daniel Jones, New York Giants
Matchup: at New York Jets
Jones has played to his competition in his young career so far. Putting up QB1 numbers against weaker defenses and putting up duds against stiffer competition. Now he gets a Jets defense that’s been getting beat all season and is fresh off a loss to the Dolphins in which they allowed 288-yards and three touchdowns to Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Jones is likely to get Sterling Shepard back, so with a full arsenal of weapons heading into an easy matchup, the rookie is set up to be my top streamer this week. We also have a season-high six teams bye this week, so it’s even more likely we’ll need to be streaming at QB.
TE: Mike Gesicki, Miami Dolphins
Matchup: at Indianapolis Colts
Gesicki is having a bit of a breakout right now and is coming off the best game of his career with a 6/95/0 performance in the Dolphins’ first win.
Preston Williams is now set to miss the remainder of the season due to injury, which means we could see Gesicki become Ryan Fitzpatrick’s No. 2 and potentially even No. 1 option in the passing game.
The needle is pointing up for Gesicki, so he’s worth a one-week rental on a heavy bye week or even as a long-term flier for TE-needy teams in deeper leagues.
Kicker: Matt Gay, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Matchup: vs. Arizona Cardinals
The Buccaneers have the second-highest team total for Week 10, which immediately brings the low-owned Gay into the streamer discussion.
The rookie has a fairly solid 84.2% field goal percentage on 19 attempts. My model goes even further, looking into the degree of difficulty on kicks, and Gay has the fifth-toughest field goal attempt sample of all kickers with at least 10 attempts this season.
His expected make rate is 79.6% in large part to six attempts from 50 or more yards. We can also look at this as Bruce Arians trusting his kicker enough to make attempts from 50-plus yards, which gives Gay some added value as those are worth even more in fantasy.
Defense: Indianapolis Colts
Matchup: vs. Miami Dolphins
The Colts draw the ideal matchup this week, so they’ll be the most popular pickup and warrant a $1-4 Free Agent Acquisition Budget bid in most leagues.
With Jacoby Brissett likely to miss, it’s going to put even more pressure on the Colts defense to shut down Miami. Not only have the Dolphins lost Kenyan Drake via trade, Mark Walton to a four-game suspension and breakout rookie Williams to injury, but expect them to have a bit of a hangover after winning their first game of 2019 last week.
