With a new game list in week 4, let’s talk about the streaming options in your fantastic lineups. I have a couple of slot receivers here that are seeing the volume increase. There are also two quarterbacks, one of which can give you some edge as a runner. And we’ll hit some running backs, tight ends, and a defense that can attack the pocket in a favorable matchup on Sunday.
Remember, we’re looking at the league’s deeper goals, players that are represented in less than 50% of Sportzshala’s leagues. While you may notice some overlap with Eric Moody’s pickup column that is published on Mondays, the important difference is that the options mentioned in this column focus solely on match this week and not the value of the players until the end of the season.
So let’s start with Detroit, the signalman who will have the opportunity to play in Week 4 against the Seattle defense.
Jared Goff, Detroit Lions (in Seahawks, 30.7% of participants): With at least one TD throw in all three games played and a pass grabbing group that can attack the Seahawks’ one and two high zone surfaces, I’m looking at Goff as a potential streamer in one of my home leagues this week. I think it’s a passing game for Goff where he hits 64% of his passes with three touchdowns.
These are timing/rhythm based concepts that create windows in the middle of the field. These are clean platforms (with protection) to control the ball. Shoot Amon-Ra St. Brown’s grab-and-run targets, work your second tier with TE TJ Hockenson, and give your verticals to DJ Chark and Josh Reynolds.
Yes, I’m going to do it. Give me Goff while I keep streaming quarterbacks instead of the injured Dak Prescott.
