2021 Fantasy Football Week 3 Quarterback Streamers

on

Welcome to your 2021 Fantasy Football Week 3 Quarterback Streamers!

Last week was a mixed bag of results for us. Jameis Winston flopped and Mac Jones was used as a game manager in every sense of the word.

Andy Dalton was on his way to a good day, completing 9 of 11 passes and a touchdown, but got hurt.

Teddy Bridgewater had a good day, scoring more than 20 Fantasy points, and now has moved up to #12 in FantasyPros ECR facing the New York Jets defense in Week 3.

Just like last week, our streamers are ranked FantasyPros ECR 16 and below, with one exception. Many of these QB’s will be widely available. Our quarterback stats and defensive FPPG (Fantasy Points Per Game) Allowed come from Fantasy Data.

Daniel Jones vs Falcons

Jones doesn’t fit our ECR 16 and under, but I felt I should include him because his roster percentage is so low. He’s owned in only owned in 21% of Yahoo and 13% of ESPN Leagues per FantasyPros.

Danny Dimes gets to go against Atlanta, the most friendly QB matchup after two weeks of football, allowing over 29 FPPG to QB’s.

Sterling Shepherd has been very good to start the season, and I think it’s just a matter of time before Kenny Golladay catches fire.

Jones also has rushing upside, with 122 rush yards and two rushing touchdowns through two weeks.

Derek Carr vs Dolphins

Derek Carr is leading the league in passing yards right now. Don’t believe me? Look it up, no joke. Part of that is because the Raiders haven’t had a running game. Josh Jacobs has been hurt, playing through obvious pain in Week 1 and sitting out in Week 2.

The deep ball has been there for Carr this year, completing 50% of his passes thrown 20+ yards downfield. He’s also tied for 4th in red zone pass attempts. In short, the Raiders are moving the ball this year and it’s because of Carr.

Miami is a tough matchup on paper, only allowing 15.8 FPPG to QB’s so far this year. One of those games was against Patriots rookie Mac Jones. The other was a blowout loss to Josh Allen and the Bills, who didn’t need to throw.

Carr’s last two opponents, Baltimore and Pittsburgh, scared or should have scared us on paper, just like Miami. But he’s done well so far. I’m willing to trust Carr here.

Matt Ryan at Giants

The Falcons fell flat in their first game, but the offense rebounded nicely against the Bucs, even if it was a losing effort. Now they pay a visit to the New York Football Giants.

We’ve learned you can pass on the Giants this year. They’ve been middle of the road in FPPG Allowed to QB’s per FantasyData standard scoring. Taylor Heinicke and Teddy Bridgewater have done well against them, and I think Matt Ryan will follow suit.

Jared Goff vs Ravens

Jared Goff is one of the surprising Fantasy QB stories this year. The Lions offense has been performing above expectations. At least mine anyway. His receivers are getting open, with an average of 2.66 yards of separation per target.

Baltimore might sound a little scary since Goff has a largely unproven group of WRs. But he has a great tight end in T.J. Hockenson. Do you want to know who else shredded the Ravens with a group of unproven WRs, but has a great TE? Derek Carr and the Raiders. Of course, just because A happened doesn’t mean B will, but the possibility is there. It helps Baltimore is allowing the 5th most FPPG to QB’s, too.

That’ll do it for this week’s 2021 fantasy football Week 3 Quarterback Streamers, best of luck and get that win!
