Streaming Quarterbacks: Week 15 Targets

After a rough Week 13, we bounced back in Week 14. Our optimal streamer, Trevor Siemian, threw for more than 300 yards and finished as a QB1 for the week. Not too shabby, playoff hopefuls! Here’s hoping you advanced last week and are looking for help in your Week 15 playoff matchups.

Week 15 looks like a good week for streamers. Our three options this week all face good matchups, and Vegas likes them. Even better, all three play at home. The three names this week are becoming common sights in this column, but I like them more than normal, given the great situations they’re in this week. Let's hope they come through for us.

On the season, our optimal streaming QB is scoring 22.0 points per game, good enough for QB9 overall. Overall, our streaming choices have averaged 18.3 points through fourteen weeks.

As always, I focus on QB points per game and the Vegas implied team totals to determine good QB streamers, then I add in their matchup for the week. For opposing defenses, we utilize Schedule-Adjusted Fantasy Points allowed (aFPA).

Week 15 QB Streaming Targets

Joe Flacco (BAL) vs PHI

Joe Flacco looked strong on Monday night against the Patriots, and he has been heating up as a fantasy option as the year has worn on. Now, he faces an Eagles defense that has been cooling since their hot start to the year, now giving up 17.3 aFPA to opposing QBs. I like Flacco to come out throwing, and I think he provides a solid floor as well.

Flacco is available in 73.8% of leagues, and he is my optimal QB streamer of the week.
