2022 Fantasy Football Week 6 QB/TE Streamers

2023 Fantasy Football QB/TE Streamers

Monday Night Football saw us suffer our latest disappointment at the tight end position, with Darren Waller suffering a potentially serious hamstring injury. And, after five games of frustration at that position, we've now arrived at the first slew of bye weeks. No edition of this column has yet felt more urgent than the 2022 Fantasy Football Week 6 QB/TE Streamers.

We're bereft of Ryan Tannehill, Davis Mills, Jared Goff, and Derek Carr this week. Admittedly, not the most devastating cast of signal callers to be without. But with Dak Prescott set to miss another game, quarterback pandemonium in Miami, Baker Mayfield's ankle injury, and quarterbacks like Matthew Stafford and Aaron Rodgers struggling, you might find yourself in need of an option with an advantageous matchup.

So let's hit it. As always, two names for each position.

Quarterbacks

Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, San Francisco 49ers (13.7% owned)

Back to the crooked-smile well, I suppose. Jimmy G finds himself with the healthiest arsenal of skill weapons around him this week in a juicy matchup versus the Falcons. He ripped off a season-high (but still pretty low) 30 passing attempts, and converted them to 253 yards and two touchdowns.

Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers seem at their absolute play-calling peak right now when it comes to getting their playmakers out in space. It's YAC-city in the Bay Area. And, to boot, they seem to have found something with pass-catching veteran Tevin Coleman operating out of the backfield.

He's not going to get you more than 20 points, but I can see him replicating last week's 18-point performance.

Daniel Jones, QB, New York Giants (17.6% owned)

Is it just me, or is there a bit of big dog thumping adjacent to Daniel Jones's Saquon-loving-heart this year? It sure looks like Brian Daboll has unlocked him a little bit, even though he's still no superstar.

Daboll must have handheld Jones through the Josh Allen school of Use Your Legs When In Doubt, because Jones is averaging just around eight carries per game so far. He seems more responsible with the ball through five weeks, and it's only helping him that Saquon Barkley looks revitalized and renewed.

He'll still likely be without Kadarius Toney (surprise) and Kenny Golladay (bummer) this week, but it looks like he's got a shot to get Wan'Dale Robinson on the field. In London, we saw some flashes of his once-decent rapport with Darius Slayton, and that's only likely to improve.

The Ravens defense, on paper, is a pretty decent challenge. But they haven't exactly been great at keeping opposing teams from scoring. And Big Blue has some serious momentum right now. He's not just a quarterback to stream this week, but one of the more enamoring storylines this season.

Tight Ends

Cade Otton, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1.5% owned)

Reports are that Cameron Brate is practicing this week, though he still remains in the concussion protocol. His return would obviously mitigate Otton's value almost entirely, so keep an eye on that.

But a Tom Brady offense is all about whether or not Tom Brady can trust you. "A lot of bad football ... ", etc. And it sure seems like Otton has at least gotten Brady to warm to him on game days. Over the past two games with Brate out, he's garnered 11 targets and posted 72 yards on nine receptions. He had his most productive day with Brady's binky, Chris Godwin, on the field. So that's saying something.

Tight end is an absolute radioactive wasteland. You could do worse than someone who's averaging almost five targets per game from Brady the past two weeks.

Taysom Hill, TE(?), New Orleans Saints (42.7% owned)

Obviously, I guess. We all knew it was going to happen sometime this season that Taysom Hill would become a cheat code in your TE slot. It was just a matter of when.

What better week for it to happen than against the can't-stop-anybody Seawhawks defense? Three rushing touchdowns, and one through the air. It was so prolific that it was frustrating.

His usage has been inconsistent, sure. But don't we think the Saints coaches are looking at Sunday's tape and thinking they've gotta find ways to integrate Hill more, especially with Jameis out?

I'm surprised his ownership didn't spike even more after waivers passed this week. He's out there in almost 60% of leagues. Gobble this dude up.
