The process of streaming certain positions in fantasy football can be tedious, but the more information we gather from the passing weeks, the more ability we have to accurately make decisions moving forward. With two weeks down, we now have more concrete evidence for usage rates, as well as which defenses to target.
Let's take a look at the Week 3 streaming options at quarterback, tight end and D/ST.
Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky – 20.0% Rostered
After hardly being rostered post-drafts, Trubisky’s rate is slowly rising — and deservedly so. The Bears’ quarterback is now ranked 14th among all quarterbacks in scoring with 39.5 fantasy points through two weeks. Trubisky is clearly playing well, but it’s his matchup against the Atlanta Falcons that should offers a prime opportunity to get in with little risk. The Falcons have allowed the most points to opposing quarterbacks this season, and it isn’t particularly close.
Expect Trubisky to test the Falcons’ questionable secondary. The Bears’ quarterback isn't just a safe option for this week but one with a potentially tremendous ceiling. PFF’s fantasy projections anticipate a strong week out of Trubisky, ranking him with a borderline QB1 finish (QB13) for the week.
Indianapolis Colts QB Philip Rivers – 8.6% Rostered
Rivers’ passing workload has been scaled back in 2020 thus far, with the veteran ranking only 14th in passing attempts (71), but it would not come as a shock to see Rivers produce a strong outing in Week 3 against the New York Jets. The Jets haven't experienced much success in limiting quarterbacks, as they currently allow the ninth-most fantasy points per game to the position.
