2020 Fantasy Football Week 1 Quarterback Streamers

2020 Fantasy Football Week 1 Quarterback Streamers:

During our 2020 Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings video

…I discussed that streaming quarterbacks rather than using an early pick on one is a strategy I’ve utilized successfully in the past. Unless a great value drops to me, I’ll be doing the same thing this year.

With that in mind, I’m going to list the Week 1 quarterback streamers I like for the start of the 2020 NFL season. If you could watch the video and hit subscribe, that would mean a lot to us!

Jared Goff, Rams (vs. Cowboys)
I obtained Jared Goff in the 13th round of a fantasy football mock draft I did recently:

I love his outlook for Week 1. He’ll be battling the Cowboys, who lost their star cornerback, Byron Jones, this offseason. They also saw one of their great edge rushers, Robert Quinn, sign with Chicago. The Rams-Cowboys game figures to be a high-scoring shootout, so it wouldn’t shock me at all if Goff threw for 350 yards and three touchdowns in the season opener.

Goff could do very well for you in Weeks 1 and 2 (at Eagles), and as a bonus, you could trick an owner in your league into trading for him as you dump your mediocre quarterback for value and pick up a better option for Week 3.

Philip Rivers, Colts (at Jaguars)
Philip Rivers’ ADP is in the 13th round, so he should be mentioned as someone you can stream by selecting him in the final four rounds of your fantasy draft.

Rivers has a great Week 1 matchup. The Jaguars are tanking for Trevor Lawrence, which entailed trading away both of their starting cornerbacks. Calais Campbell is gone as well, so Rivers figures to have plenty of time in the pocket to dissect Jacksonville’s miserable secondary.

Derek Carr, Raiders (at Panthers)
Carolina’s defense has been ravaged by departures this offseason, as Luke Kuechly retired, while James Bradberry signed with the Giants. Quarterbacks will be able to attack the Panthers aerially as long as their offensive line can hold up against Kawann Short, Derrick Brown, Yetru Gross-Matos and Brian Burns. The Raiders have one of the better offensive lines in the NFL, so the front should be able to keep Carr clean in this matchup.

Dwayne Haskins, Redskins (vs. Eagles)
Dwayne Haskins may seem unappealing, but would you be upset with this stat line?

19-of-28, 261 passing yards, 2 TDs. 3 carries, 26 rushing yards.

That’s 21.04 fantasy points, which is exactly what Haskins achieved in his Week 16 battle against the Eagles. Philadelphia’s linebacking corps is in shambles, while the secondary lost Malcolm Jenkins. The Eagles acquired Darius Slay, but they still have issues in the secondary.
