Kremenjas: Fantasy football QB/TE/DEF streamers for NFL Week 5

The process of streaming fantasy football players at specific positions is an interesting strategy that may be repaying a more significant return on investment in the 2020 NFL season than in years past, as injuries have run rampant across the league. This week’s primer will help you identify the best quarterback, tight end and defense/special teams streamers for Week 5.

These are the best and most accessible options at their respective positions.

Quarterback

Jimmy Garoppolo, San Francisco 49ers — 31% rostered

The first order of business is to ensure that Jimmy G is healthy enough to play in this contest. Early speculation suggests Garoppolo will be ready to compete in Week 5. And if he does, he is a fantastic streaming option at the quarterback spot, as he opposes the Miami Dolphins this week, who have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks.

Garoppolo didn’t have the best start to his season, but he is still ranked as the QB31 after only two (1.5 games) of playing time, totaling 32.5 fantasy points in his short time on the field. The return to health for the 49ers should only help, too, as stars George Kittle and Deebo Samuel are also back on the field. PFF’s strength of schedule (SoS) metric ranks Garoppolo’s matchup as the easiest of the week.
