2020 Fantasy Football Week 10 Quarterback Streaming

on

Welcome to the 2020 Fantasy Football Week 10 Quarterback Streaming article!

It sure looks weird to already see a double-digit week number but here we are: just a few short weeks away from fantasy playoffs. Now let’s get your team’s QB sorted out for the playoff push.

In last week’s article, I recommended streaming Ben Roethlisberger, Derek Carr, and Drew Lock. Overall it was a great week for streamers as those players finished as QB7, QB22, and QB4 respectively. We will look to repeat that level of success once again this week.

The 2020 Fantasy Football Week 10 Quarterback Streaming will highlight QBs owned in under 50% of NFL.com’s leagues.

Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams (51.8% Owned)

Jared Goff and the Rams are coming off of a much-needed bye in Week 9, as in Week 8 he completed 35 of 61 attempts for 355 yards, one touchdown, two interceptions, and two fumbles in a shocking upset loss to the Miami Dolphins.

This was the first game of the year where Goff was really forced to sling it. 61 attempts were easily a season-high for him, as he has no other game this year with 40+ attempts.

Goff is currently the QB17 on the season, with three games inside the top 12 and three games outside the top 22. He has been a very boom or bust option thus far.

You’re playing Goff in hopes of getting one of those boom games, and I like the odds of that happening in this matchup.

The Matchup

Goff and the Rams stay home this weekend to play the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks are currently allowing the third-most points per game this season after taking a drubbing from the Bills last week.

The high point totals that they are allowing are mostly coming from damage in the passing game, as they allow the most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season at 27.9 per game.

These aren’t just flukey points from high touchdowns either, they are getting consistently ripped apart on yardage and are allowing most passing yards per game at 362. For comparison, the second-worst team is the Atlanta Falcons, who allow 310.

This coincides with Seattle allowing the fourth-least rushing yards per game. Teams have no reason to run against the Seahawks and every reason to pass.

They are also first in offensive scoring. Wilson’s MVP campaign is turning every matchup into a shootout, which is why the over-under for this game is the second-highest of the week at 55.5.

If that wasn’t enough for you, Seattle’s pace of play is rising. They have been around average in plays run per game this year, but in the last three games, it has jumped from 64.2 to 70.7 per game.

Jared Goff is easily my number one streamer for this week, it is not surprising that he makes the top-12 in our expert consensus rankings.

Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins (37.9% Owned)

In his second start, Tua Tagovailoa attempted 28 passes, completing 20 of them for 248 yards, two touchdowns, and seven carries for 35 rushing yards.

Unlike last week, he couldn’t just sit back and let his special teams and defense carry him. He had to make some plays, and he delivered.

It didn’t translate to a huge fantasy game (QB17 on the week), but it showed a glimpse of his potential. He doesn’t have the rushing upside of Kyler Murray or Lamar Jacksno but he can definitely get some chunk yardage when nobody is open, which should provide a nice little boost to his baseline.

It’s always scary to start a rookie in fantasy, but this quarterback class is shaping up to be something special, so it is worth a shot.

The Matchup

Speaking of this quarterback class, Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert will face off in what should be a very fun matchup of the rookies when the Dolphins and the Los Angeles Chargers play this week.

The Chargers are middle of the pack in most team defense stats, however, they are allowing the fourth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks on the season. Their once talented defense is now nothing to be afraid of for fantasy managers.

In addition, with Myles Gaskins‘ surprise injury, the Miami RB room is once again one of the worst in the league in terms of pure talent. That means I am expecting a season-high in pass attempts for Tua, and possibly some extra rushing work too.

But arguably the best part about gambling on Tua is his upcoming schedule. His next four matchups are the Chargers (fourth-worst against QBs), Broncos (ninth-worst), Jets (fifth-worst), and Bengals (fourth-worst over the past 4 weeks).

Tua is a solid secondary option if Goff is already taken in your league, however, he is still a rookie so his consistency is by no means guaranteed.

Bargain Bin Option

Drew Lock, Denver Broncos  (5.5% Owned)

Making his second straight appearance in the bargain bin, Drew Lock has been quite the find for managers in leagues with deeper rosters.

He threw 48 times on Sunday, completing 25 passes for 313 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. He also added 47 rushing yards and an additional TD with his legs. That performance made him the QB4 on the week. Between that and a QB7 showing last week, Lock is becoming hard to ignore.

Now does he look good in those performances? Not really. His accuracy is still not ideal and he seems to only really show up in the fourth quarter. But at the end of the day, perception and name recognition don’t matter. All that matters is the final number in your lineup.

The fact of the matter is that he has been putting up great numbers, he has solid weapons around him, and he has another enticing matchup again this week.

The Matchup

Lock and the Broncos will face-off against the Las Vegas Raiders at Mile High Stadium.  The Raiders are currently giving up the seventh-most points to the quarterback position.

It’s hard to know exactly what to expect out of the Raiders as a whole on any given week, but it almost always involves a big performance for the opposing QB.  Just last week Justin Herbert lit them up for 326 yards and two scores.



Overall, I get that it is very hard to trust Drew Lock in your lineup, and you may be checking your fantasy scores through clenched teeth, but in deep and Superflex leagues he is a fine start with a high ceiling but a very low floor.
