Week 10 Streamers

Fantasy playoffs are inching closer, and injuries are starting to creep up at a drastic rate. At the same time, the Ravens, Bengals, Patriots, and Jets are all on bye. You may need to lean on a streamer or two to get you through this week. Remember, we always provide the best players to stream at quarterback, tight end, and D/ST. Each streaming option will have ownership under 60%, according to ESPN. Below, you will find two streamers per position, and for the first time this season, there are two “deep stream” options that are featured (15% or lower). 

QUARTERBACK  

Russell Wilson

Streamer #1: Russell Wilson at Titans, 50.8% owned

 Week  Opponent  Fantasy Points
 1  at Seahawks  17.8
 2  vs Texans  12.1
 3  vs 49ers  9.1
 4  at Raiders  26.5
 5  vs Colts  11.2
 6  at Chargers  13.8
 7  vs Jets  N/A
 8  at Chargers  14.8
 9  BYE  BYE

The streaming options this week are not the greatest on paper, but they’re streamable. Russell Wilson has been a complete disaster both in fantasy and in real life. There is no denying that he seems to have taken a step back from his Seattle days. But his matchup this week is very enticing. Tennessee has given up 300-plus passing yards in five of their eight games this year. They also rank sixth-worse in the league in passing touchdowns allowed (15). They’re fresh off a game where they allowed a QB2 finish to Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. If needing a streaming option at quarterback, Wilson looks like one of the top candidates this week.  

Streamer #2: Jared Goff at Bears, 33.5% owned

 Week  Opponent  Fantasy Points
 1  vs Eagles  16.5
 2  vs Commanders  26.0
 3  at Vikings  14.9
 4  vs Seahawks  34.2
 5  at Patriots  6.9
 6  BYE  BYE
 7  at Cowboys  3.5
 8  vs Dolphins  17.6
 9  vs Packers  12.4

Justin Fields and the Chicago offense seems to be rolling right now. So do the offenses going against them on the other side. Although the Bears rank 13th against fantasy quarterbacks on the season, they’ve been a lot worse as of late. In the last two weeks, they’ve allowed two consecutive QB4 finishes (Dak Prescott and Tua Tagovailoa). This isn’t to say Jared Goff will finish that high here in Week 10, but he certainly has the capability of doing so. In eight games played this season, Goff has finished as the QB7 or better two separate times. If Goff is available, he’s a better streaming option ahead of Wilson by a smidge. 

TIGHT END

Greg Dulcich

Streamer #1: Greg Dulcich at Titans, 38.1% owned

 Week  Opponent  PPR  Points  Half PPR Points  Standard Points
 1  at Seahawks  N/A  N/A  N/A
 2  vs Texans  N/A  N/A  N/A
 3  vs 49ers  N/A  N/A  N/A
 4  at Raiders  N/A  N/A  N/A
 5  vs Colts  N/A  N/A  N/A
 6  at Chargers  N/A  N/A  N/A
 7  vs Jets  12.4  11.4  10.4
 8  at Chargers  11.1  8.1  5.1
 9  BYE  12.7  10.7  8.7

After Week 6, Greg Dulcich was an afterthought in redraft leagues, a cut candidate in keeper leagues, and a player to worry about in dynasty leagues. Now he’s a must-roster player in nearly every league type. But surprisingly, he’s still available in more than 60 percent of ESPN leagues. In PPR formats, he’s topped 10 fantasy points in three straight weeks. In Weeks 6-8, he served as the TE3 behind only George Kittle and Mike Gesicki. Now, his hot streak may continue this week, as he and his team take on the Titans. Tennessee ranks 26th against fantasy tight ends, and they’ve allowed an average of 14.8 PPR points per game to opposing tight end groups. 

Streamer #2: Cole Kmet vs Lions, 32.8% owned

 Week  Opponent  PPR  Points  Half PPR Points  Standard Points
 1  vs 49ers  0.0  0.0  0.0
 2  at Packers  0.0  0.0  0.0
 3  vs Texans  6.0  5.0  4.0
 4  at Giants  4.6  3.1  1.6
 5  at Vikings  8.5  6.5  4.5
 6  vs Commanders  2.5  2.0  1.5
 7  at Patriots  5.2  4.2  3.2
 8  at Cowboys  9.1  8.1  7.1
 9  vs Dolphins  22.0  19.5  17.0

Yes, Cole Kmet is a tad bit of a touchdown-dependent fantasy tight end right now. But there’s no denying that Chicago’s offense is much-improved as of late because of the emergence of Justin Fields and company. One of Fields’ favorite targets in the red zone is Kmet. During the last two weeks, the third-year pro has hauled in seven of his eight targets for 52 yards and THREE touchdowns. His little touchdown hot streak may continue this week against a Detroit team that ranks 29th against fantasy tight ends. They’ve allowed more than nine PPR points in EVERY game this season to opposing tight end groups. And in four of those matchups, they surrendered at least 16. 

D/ST

Broncos Defense

Streamer #1: Broncos at Titans, 40.6% owned

 Week  Opponent  Fantasy Points
 1  at Seahawks  7.0
 2  vs Texans  8.0
 3  vs 49ers  17.0
 4  at Raiders  1.0
 5  vs Colts  13.0
 6  at Chargers  6.0
 7  vs Jets  6.0
 8  at Jaguars  7.0
 9  BYE  BYE

Fresh off a Week 9 bye, the Broncos look to continue to have their way on the defensive side of the ball against the Titans. Luckily for them, rookie quarterback, Malik Willis, looks like he might start his third consecutive game while Ryan Tannehill nurses an ankle injury. During his two starts this season, he has completed 11 of his 26 pass attempts for 135 yards, 0 touchdowns, and one interception. No, opposing defenses aren’t creating a ton of turnovers against this team, but with Willis under center, there sure seems like more chaos could occur due to his poor play and lack of experience. Meanwhile, Denver has been one of the better defenses in the league this season (D/ST8), registering 24 sacks, six interceptions, and three fumble recoveries in eight games. 

Streamer #2: Raiders vs Colts, 8.9% owned

 Week  Opponent  Fantasy Points
 1  at Chargers  -1.0
 2  vs Cardinals  0.0
 3  at Titans  2.0
 4  vs Broncos  13.0
 5  at Chiefs  1.0
 6  BYE  BYE
 7  vs Texans  6.0
 8  at Saints  -1.0
 9  at Jaguars  -1.0

This may be the stream of the week at the D/ST position, and you can find the Raiders in nearly every league’s free agency right now. They go under the radar because they’ve been atrocious this season. But their matchup against the Colts could be exactly what Las Vegas’ defense needs to turn their season around. Indianapolis has become the soap opera of the NFL these past couple of weeks. Sam Ehlinger is the starting quarterback, Jonathan Taylor is hurt, Frank Reich was fired, and Jeff Saturday is now the head coach. They rank second-worse in the league against fantasy quarterbacks. And they’re coming off a Week 8 performance where they surrendered 26 fantasy points to the Patriot’s D/ST. 

BONUS

Jacoby Brissett

Deep Streamer #1: Jacoby Brissett at Dolphins, 9.1% owned

 Week  Opponent  Fantasy Points
 1  at Panthers  10.9
 2  vs Jets  16.5
 3  vs Steelers  17.9
 4  at Falcons  16.0
 5  vs Chargers  15.4
 6  vs Patriots  10.6
 7  at Ravens  10.1
 8  vs Bengals  20.3
 9  BYE  BYE

If you play in a deep league, and both Wilson and Goff are unavailable, Jacoby Brissett could be your week-saving quarterback. The last time we saw him on the field, he turned in a QB10 finish against the Bengals on prime-time television. Now fresh off a Week 9 bye, Brissett and the Browns take on a Dolphins team that seems like they can’t stop any quarterback this season. Fields finished as the QB1 against them last week, which was the second time they surrendered that feat in 2022 (Lamar Jackson in Week 2 was the other occurrence). Miami is allowing an average of just over 26 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks this season. Don’t expect 26 from Brissett this week, but 20-plus seems very manageable at this point. 

Deep Streamer #2: Cade Otton vs Seahawks, 8.5% owned

 Week  Opponent  PPR  Points  Half PPR Points  Standard Points
 1  at Cowboys  0.0  0.0  0.0
 2  at Saints  1.4  0.9  0.4
 3  vs Packers  N/A  N/A  N/A
 4  vs Chiefs  5.9  4.4  2.9
 5  vs Falcons  10.3  7.3  4.3
 6  at Steelers  4.3  3.3  2.3
 7  at Panthers  10.4  8.4  6.4
 8  vs Ravens  3.5  2.5  1.5
 9  vs Rams  17.8  15.3  12.8

Tampa Bay and Tom Brady have deeply missed Rob Gronkowski this season. The veteran duo of Cameron Brate and Kyle Rudolph hasn’t worked out too well. In fact, not much has worked out on the offensive side of the ball for this team. But one bright spot as of late has come from rookie tight end Cade Otton. He has seen at least five targets in three straight weeks. And he’s coming off a TE4 finish where he hauled in five of his six targets for 68 yards and the game-winning touchdown. Now he and the Buccaneers take on a Seahawks team that has surrendered the second-most fantasy points to his position this season.
