Every week we will bring you our advice on which signal-callers have the potential to help your fantasy teams win. We will look at the previous weeks’ performances, the quarterbacks’ supporting cast, the matchup, and smart statistical insights to offer you the clearest picture of which QB to pick up from your waiver wire.
Remember, we will only consider QBs who are less than 70% rostered in Yahoo! leagues to give you an honest chance at picking one up for your team’s matchup.
Week 13 was a big success for our recommended streaming option, Jordan Love (23.68 fantasy points). The Packers’ young, promising star has made huge strides over the past month and suddenly looks like one of the most accurate, creative quarterbacks in the league. Love connected twice with Christian Watson in the end zone, a sight that all fans in Green Bay will be salivating over after a long drought of QB/WR chemistry.
Matthew Stafford (22.96 fantasy points) also stepped up to the plate, throwing for 279 and three passing scores against a reeling Browns defense. The form of the veteran alongside the frailties of the Browns defense led us to bump him up our chart and we were rewarded with a virtuoso performance. Puka Nacua remains a fantasy starlet and the return of Kyren Williams has added a nice screen-pass option for a score for Stafford.
Kenny Pickett (3.10 fantasy points) was forced out of the Steelers game last week early with a high ankle sprain, which he has now had surgery on and will miss the rest of the fantasy season.

“Looking for the Dobbs”
Joshua Dobbs, Vikings at Raiders
After some doubt was thrown by his Kevin O’Connell after the Vikings’ loss against the Bears prior to the bye week, Joshua Dobbs was confirmed as the start for this highly-winnable game against the Raiders. And…Justin Jefferson is back. Don’t overthink this one, start Dobbs, who prior to the last outing rolled out an average fantasy score of 20+ points over four weeks.

“Russ be cookin'”
Russell Wilson, Broncos at Chargers
For those that are missing Sam Howell this week, a solid veteran option is Russell Wilson. Yes, he threw three interceptions last week but that is an anomaly in what has been an encouraging month or so in terms of real life and fantasy production. Wilson ran for 44 yards and a touchdown, his second rushing score in as many weeks and this alone provides upside. The wideout play of Courtland Sutton is another reason to be hopeful on a weekly bases. A less-than competent Chargers defense awaits.
RUSS TO SUTTON!

Jake Browning, Bengals vs. Colts
After a memorable Bengals win over the Jaguars, Jake Browning has officially been unleashed. Given the license to sling the ball around after a couple of very conservative showings since taking the helm from an injured Joe Burrow, the young signal-caller threw for 354 yards and a long touchdown to Ja’Marr Chase. It was an impressive performance and gives us hope that he can be a wildcard option with the weapons around him.
THERE GOES JA'MARR
