- Need a replacement quarterback, tight end, defense or kicker for Week 11?
- Sean Koerner finds the best fantasy football streaming targets at each.
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: QB6 (196.54)
- Tight End: TE20 (48.8)
- Kicker: K2 (100)
- Defense: DEF3 (120)
Now let’s dig into my top fantasy streaming options at quarterback, tight end, kicker and defense for Week 11.

Week 11 Fantasy Football Streaming Targets
QB: Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders
Matchup: vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Carr has been on a roll since the Raiders’ Week 6 bye, averaging 271 passing yards a game with an eight-to-one touchdown-to-interception ratio.
He makes a particularly appealing low-end QB1 streaming option against the 0-9 Bengals. The potential blowout does lower his ceiling, but with the highest team total of Week 11, he has the third-highest passing touchdown projection in my model. The Bengals have mostly faced rushing QBs this season, but the two pocket passers they have faced (Jimmy Garoppolo and Jared Goff) have averaged 334 passing yards and 2.5 touchdowns against the Bengals.
Carr is one of the better high-floor streaming options we’ve seen this season.
For Deeper Leagues: Kyle Allen, Carolina Panthers (15% owned)
TE: Noah Fant, Denver Broncos
Matchup: at Minnesota Vikings
I had speculated that the losses of Emmanuel Sanders (trade) and Joe Flacco (IR) may help spark Noah Fant’s breakout heading into Week 9. And sure enough, he erupted for a 3/115/1 line that week.
There’s a very real chance Fant is Brandon Allen’s No. 2 option going forward. Allen frequently targeted his TEs when he was at Arkansas. And in his first start for the Bronco, he targeted Philip Lindsay and Royce Freeman only once. It’s a trend that may continue, which means if you are tired of streaming TEs, Fant is worth a flier because he can turn into a low-end TE1.
Kicker: Daniel Carlson, Oakland Raiders
Matchup: vs. Cincinnati Bengals
The Raiders have the highest team total of the week at 29.5. They’re also 10.5-point favorites, which means there should be plenty of scoring opportunities and they could possibly settle for field goals when they take their foot off the gas later in the game.
Carlson has had bit of a poor season, making only 75% of his field goals so far. He’s missed twice beyond 50 yards, but considering he made all thre attempts from 50 or more yards last season, we can assume he’ll see some positive regression on longer kicks.
Right now my model has him slotted as the No. 2 kicker for Week 11.
Defense: Washington Redskins
Matchup: vs. New York Jets
The Jets have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing defenses. A large part of that is they’ve allowed the second-most sacks with 39.
The Redskins defense has been heating up of late, specifically Jonathan Allen, Montez Sweat and Matthew Ioannidis. They’ve averaged 3.0 sacks over their past four games with a two-to-three touchdown-to-interception ratio against.
Fresh off a bye and getting to face the Jets at home makes the Redskins an appealing Week 11 stream. It’s important to remember that sacks and points allowed are two of the most predictable stats for fantasy output, and the Redskins rank top-five in both in my model this week.
