Week Seven Streamer Results
Joe Flacco – 22.6 points
Baker Mayfield – 19.9 points
Sam Darnold – 11 points
Another solid performance from our top pick(and second choice for that matter). Week 8 is a bit stingy so lets dive in and see what we can find.
Derek Carr vs Colts (27% Yahoo, 16% ESPN)
Carr may have lost Amari Cooper to the Cowboys but he’ll be at home against a Colts defense that is 31st in completion percentage and towards the bottom of the league in yards given up in the passing game. Without a hammer running back like Marshawn Lynch behind him he’ll need to rely on the pass a bit more in a game they figure to be behind in with a large over under of 50. Carr also gets the 49ers next week making him a great candidate for back to back streaming weeks.
Baker Mayfield @ Steelers (41% Yahoo, 41% ESPN)
After a slow start against the Chargers Mayfield put up a solid performance against the Buccaneers who have been torched all year. Next up are the Steelers who are in the middle of the pack in pass defense. Mayfield comes in as my second streamer this week because, while the matchup looks good on paper, it’s a division game and no one has scored 30 since the Steelers did it in 2015. This could be a low scoring game that negates the value against this pass defense.
