Streaming Quarterbacks: Week 15 Targets

If you’re reading this, you survived Week 14. You survived Derrick Henry’s monstrous performance against the Jaguars. You avoided Aaron Rodgers’ four-touchdown day against the Lions. And, hopefully, the streamers helped get you there. We’re heading into the second week of the playoffs with games on Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. The pressure is mounting, but the process stays the same. Let’s review Week 14 for key takeaways and then dive into the matchups awaiting us in Week 15.

Week 14 Review

Another productive week for the streamers. Three of the recommendations finished inside the Top 12 with Rivers and Mayfield inside the Top 18. The process served us well, but there are always takeaways we can pull from the games and help us next week.

Top Streamers

  • Philip Rivers – 17.8 pts (QB15)
  • Mitchell Trubisky – 25.0 pts (QB6)

Deep Plays

Teddy Bridgewater wound up as the QB9, but his results cover up a poor performance. D.J. Moore was ineligible to play after testing, but Denver was missing its top corner and had given up an average of 258.5 yards over their last four matchups. And yet, Bridgewater struggled. He was just 6/14 on third down, took multiple sacks, and completed just five passes of 10 air yards or more. Moore’s absence may have been part of the issue, but the Panthers had the bye week to plan through the absence. Bridgwater’s setback makes him difficult to trust moving forward despite a decent matchup against Green Bay. Hopefully, Moore is back, but Bridgewater will be tough to trust.

Philip Rivers has now averaged 19.0 PPG over the last four weeks. The schedule has certainly favored the Colts, but he did score 21.4 points against Green Bay (15.4 aFPA) back in Week 11. Even with his foot injury, Rivers passed on 62.2% of the Colts’ plays in neutral situations with eight attempts of 15 air yards or more (two resulting in touchdowns). The injury clearly isn’t holding Rivers back as the Colts have averaged 39.1 yards per drive over their last four games. We should trust Rivers again in Week 15 with another positive matchup against the Texans.
