Streamers are planners.

True Quarterback By Waiver Wire (QBBWW) adherents are always scheming, examining, fretting, thinking three steps ahead of their league mates who plan to set it and forget it at the quarterback position in 2014.

Planning, always thinking beyond the coming week, is a vital part of being a successful quarterback streamer. It’s foundational, really, because we don’t have the luxury of simply plugging and playing the NFL’s best signal callers, no matter the competition.

And that’s OK, because quarterback production – much like defensive production – is largely replaceable.

I’ve already used 4for4’s schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed and fantasy points per attempt (FPAT) to identify three ideal Week 1 streaming options. You want to look well beyond the NFL’s opening week, however, so I’ve pieced together a trio of late-round quarterback committees  (QBBC) whose schedules mesh well from start to finish. 

All of these quarterbacks can be had in the 11th round of 12-team drafts, at the earliest. They’ll cost you almost nothing. Check out our QB Hot Spots Report for a visual representation.
