Top Fantasy Football Week 2 Quarterback Streamers

We're headed to Week 2 in Fantasy Football. While we don't want to overreact too much just yet, depending on your league size and roster sizes, there are many solid options on the waiver wire as we approach Thursday.

For those new to Fantasy Football, Streaming in fantasy football is where you continually swap out players each week.

We're going to take a look at quarterbacks that have the potential to at least give you a Top-15 QB performance in shallow leagues and deep league formats.

Quarterbacks Streamers for Shallow Leagues

  • Derek Carr, QB, Raiders vs. Cardinals

I know Derek Carr threw three interceptions against the Chargers last week. But he's now facing an Arizona defense that allowed Patrick Mahomes to throw for five touchdowns and 360 yards.

Carr had 37 attempts against the Chargers in Week 1 and completed 22 passes for 295 yards and two touchdowns. He'll have fewer interceptions against the Cardinals and has a massive connection with Davante Adams.

Carr has a solid receiving core of Adams, Darren Waller, and Hunter Renfrow, to name a few. This is the best NFL group he's ever worked with, and he will succeed against a terrible Arizona defense.

  • Carson Wentz, QB, Commanders vs. Lions

Carson Wentz attempted 41 passes and completed 27 for 313 yards. He also threw four touchdowns and ran six times for 12 yards.

Wentz also threw two interceptions against Jacksonville in Week 1 but was only sacked once. He had solid time in the pocket and delivered some nice balls. He's got a better receiving core than analysts predicted, between Terry McLaurin, Curtis Samuel, and Jahan Dotson.

All three of those receivers bring something different to the table. Now Wentz gets to take on the Detroit Lions, who allowed 38 points to the Eagles last week.

  • Daniel Jones, QB, Giants vs. Panthers

The Giants have some confidence coming into Week 2. New York didn't play their best but still defeated the Tennessee Titans at home in Week 1.

Daniel Jones made one terrible mistake on an interception in the endzone. But other than that, he was 17-for-21 with 188 yards passing and two touchdowns.

The Panthers allowed Jacoby Brissett and the Browns to score nearly 28 points. Jones is a threat in the running game, and with more defenses committing to the run against Barkley, Jones could earn some more rushing yards in this game against the Panthers.

Quarterbacks Streamers for Deep Leagues

  • Trevor Lawrence, QB, Jaguars vs. Colts

I don't want to overreact, but Davis Mills of the Houston Texans has many people talking about how well he played against the Colts to tie them in Week 1.

Maybe Mills has improved a great deal. But ultimately, the blame should be on the Colts.

Lawrence, meanwhile, threw 42 times. He completed 275 yards and had one touchdown with an interception against the Commanders.

The interception came when Lawrence tried to bring the team back in the final drive. He was also sacked just two times. He doesn't have a great list of receivers, but Travis Etienne will eventually become a receiving threat in the backfield.

His volume makes him a solid fantasy option in deeper leagues.

  • Matt Ryan, QB, Colts vs. Jaguars

Meanwhile, I'd also give Matt Ryan a look against the Jaguars. He went to overtime in Week 1 against the Texans. Therefore, his stats are a bit skewed. But he threw 50 times and had 352 yards passing against the Texans.

He was only sacked twice in the game and even rushed for 12 yards. The Jaguars have improved on the defense this year, but Carson Wentz, who Ryan replaced, added four touchdowns against this team.

If the Colts think Ryan is better than Wentz, then Ryan should give them the same output.

  • Marcus Mariota, QB, Falcons vs. Rams

This is a sneaky play. Mariota rushed 12 times for 72 yards and scored a touchdown last week against the Saints. He also threw for 215 yards and didn't have an interception.

Mariota helped the Falcons stay relevant in Week 1, despite losing to the Saints in overtime. Mariota is a major threat in the run game, and as long as he protects the ball, he could be a great fantasy weapon.

Against the Rams, Josh Allen had a field day. Mariota is a poor man, Josh Allen. He won't make great throws like Allen, but he'll be able to earn rushing yards like Allen. Rushing yards are worth a lot in fantasy. Plus, the Falcons figure to be down early in this one. So he'll have to speed up the game and make plays quickly to keep the Falcons in the game.
