As we move into the back half of the season, most of our fantasy teams look a lot different than anticipated at the beginning of the season. With injuries plaguing every team including some star players at key positions, work will have to be done on the waivers to make that playoff push.
With that being said, here are my top streamer options at both the quarterback and tight end positions. In order to be a streaming option, players have to be owned in less than 60 percent of ESPN leagues and are chosen based on their Week 10 matchup.
Week 10 QB ranks:
👑 – Kyler
3. PFF's favorite QB Josh Allen
7. Rookie sensation Justin Herbert
8. Ryan TanneThrill
11. Jared Goff vs. hilariously bad SEA pass defense
12. Cam. Gotta love rushing production

The Rams offense hasn’t looked the same these past few games as they did at the start of the season, but are sitting with an ideal matchup this week. Here in Week 10, they face off against the Seahawks, who just lost 44-34 to the Bills last week allowing over 34 fantasy points to QB Josh Allen. The Seahawks are allowing the most fantasy points per game (FPPG) to opposing quarterbacks so far this season and it wouldn’t be surprising to see this game turn into another shootout like last week’s game between Seattle and Buffalo. Goff has struggled recently completing less than 60 percent of his passes over the past three games, but given how terribly bad Seattle’s defense is, he will put up great fantasy points.
Nick Foles had his best fantasy performance of this season last week against the Titans with 335 passing yards and two touchdowns totaling 21.6 fantasy points. The Titans are allowing 19.8 FPPG to opposing quarterbacks, and now Foles faces a team that allows 21.0 FPPG to opposing quarterbacks in Minnesota. Minnesota is hard to read this season because one game they look improved, but fall apart the following game. Either way, the Bears defense is talented and will fluster Kirk Cousins a bunch throughout so the game should be balanced a bit more this time around. The Bears played from behind the entire game in Week 9 but should be able to balance it out with some run game and pass game.
Despite completing over 60 percent of his passes in every game this season, Carr fell off a bit in Week 9 completing 56.5 percent of his passes for 165 yards and two touchdowns against the Chargers. Luckily, he plays Denver this time around who just allowed 284 yards passing and three touchdowns to Matt Ryan just one week ago. Denver’s defense is banged up and has been struggling all season now. I really like Carr’s upside here against not only a poor pass defense but a division matchup. If your quarterback has a bye or is injured, Carr will certainly make do as a starter this week on fantasy rosters against a poor pass defense thus far.
Tonyan took the fantasy world by surprise at the beginning of the season, but didn’t realize that those games he made a huge impact were the games where Davante Adams was out due to injury. Still, Tonyan has Aaron Rodgers throwing to him and still sees targets each game. Green Bay plays Jacksonville in Week 10, which is going to an ugly game to watch. But, all Packers players have great matchups with how poor Jacksonville’s defense has played thus far. They’re allowing the third most fantasy points to opposing tight ends with 11.4 FPPG. It is concerning that Lazard is returning to the lineup, which will take some of Tonyan’s targets, but given his matchup, I like him here a lot.
Despite being targeted 16 times in the first two games of the season, Gesicki has only been targeted 18 times total in the last six games. With HC Brian Flores making the change to their rookie QB, it seemed like Gesicki lost all value in fantasy to be relevant, but I do like his upside moving forward. Miami has to play hard for a shot at the AFC East title and play the choke-prone Chargers in Week 10, who are also allowing over 12 FPPG to opposing tight ends. Preston Williams was injured last game and the backfield is already banged up, leaving the door wide open for a Mike Gesicki day.
I would normally avoid the Colts offense all together because no one has a consistent fantasy role in that offense, but if there’s someone, it’s Burton. He’s been targeted four or more times in five straight games, but his fantasy value comes from his role in the goal-line game. In Week 6, he had a goal-line carry for a touchdown and then in Week 8, had a two yarder. He plays Tennessee who allows 9.0 FPPG to opposing tight ends and also just allowed six catches for 55 yards and a touchdown to Jimmy Graham last week against Chicago. He is very touchdown dependent, but Indy’s defense is strong and will keep the game close throughout leaving Burton with opportunities to return solid fantasy value to his managers.
