How many times have you heard someone tell you to "stream" a position? Whether quarterback, tight end or defense, the idea of streaming is great, provided you have excluded the players you want from the waiver. The problem with weekly streaming is that everyone knows who you are targeting in these good matchups, and that you may have that player with you, or, worse, your opponent this week could grab a player just to you they can not be protected.
Import your team into "My Playbook" for instant listing instructions. Every Saturday morning you go to your disclaimer and grab the players who are due for good matchups the following week. You may have a brutal matchup for this current week. Great, even better. That just means that they are more likely to be available to you. By capturing them a week before, you no longer have to spend a lot of top-of-the-range FAAB money, all of them following. Here are the players who have solid Matchups of Week 1
Kyle Allen (CAR) vs. ATL
Now that Cam Newton is in reserve we're hurt Allen can actively target Allen as a streamer in good matchups. The hawks have been gone for a week. Maybe you need a refresher on how bad they were. The touchdown rate of 7.63 percent and 8.46 yards per attempt occupy the last five places in the league. Last year, the Falcons have now completed 17 of the last 23 quarterbacks as QB13 or better.
Nick Foles (JAX) at IND
Whether it was right or not wrong, the jaguars return to Foles after the Bye-week. The matchup is good too. The Colts were a brick wall against the run since Matt Eberflus took over the role of defensive coordinator early last year, as no return has crossed the 100-yard mark. The pass is the most important means of moving the ball. That's why we've completed 5 out of 8 quarterbacks this year with at least 15.5 fantasy points against the Colts.
Kalen Ballage (MIA)) vs BUF
It's funny to see fantasy owners avoiding ballage. Although he has the starting job, he is only 34 percent owned when I write that. I am proud that everyone has noted his inefficiency, but he is the type of player who should be brought through the hell of the week. Is he inefficient? That's for sure. Will he use a lot in the passing game? Probably not. Should he score more than 12 points while working on the goal line? Yes. In a matchup with the Bills, who scored 42 rushing touchdowns in the 40 games under Sean McDermott, he is worth an extra if you need a streaming rewind.
Ito Smith (ATL) at CAR
He's struggling with a neck injury right now, but if he manages to get it back for this game, he has streaming appeal. He's generally in the 6-12 range when he's on the field, and one interesting value I've come across this week was that he has received four of the five stretcher within the five-yard line that Falcons running backs will be available this year. This is an important treat against a Panthers team that allowed a lavish touchdown every 15.6 transmissions. This is more common than any other league team. They also allow the most fantasy points per opportunity (transfers and goals), making it a game in which Smith should offer a decent fantasy floor.
Alternative Option: Ty Johnson (DET) vs. DAL
Wide Receivers  Phillip Dorsett (NE) at PHI
The Patriots have barely managed to beat the ball against bad teams Run, let alone lead the Eagles shutdown to the defense. Tom Brady tries an average of 40 passes per game, although he blows out his opponents in almost every game. Against the Eagles we should count on over 40 pass attempts. So why not bind to a startup recipient? There were eight wide receivers that had crossed 15 PPR points against the Eagles, and none of them was a slot heavy receiver, which is good for Dorsett, who got in with Edelman / Sanu, who got the slot snaps the background was pushed.
] Ted Ginn (NO) at TB
He was in this article last week, so hopefully he's already on your list when you stream broadcasters. He has another plus matchup next week as the Saints drive to Tampa Bay. They have awarded 45.5 PPR points per game to broad recipients. This is the highest score in the league, while the next team has only given 42.2 points per game. Guys, there's only so much Michael Thomas can do.
Cole Beasley (BUF) at MIA
He is constantly doing the work for Streamer, as his record now stands at 9.0 or more PPR points 7 out of 8 games. He has met in three games in a row that can not compete, but anything is possible against the Dolphins. They allowed all 10.1 goals to touchdown (most commonly in the NFL), while also allowing for fairly high 9.23 yards per goal. He is not a high-upside game, but if you are looking for a stable ground, he should offer it.
Decent alternative options: Demaryius Thomas (NYJ) at WAS, Deebo Samuel (SF) v ARI  Tight Ends
Chris Herndon (NYJ) at WHAT
We must assume that he will be back for this game, right? He practiced all week, which is a step in the right direction. The Redskins have given Streamer a stable bottom as 6-of-9 starters finished as top-18 options, including two top-8s. While Sam Darnold is fighting for his groove, the safety score in Herndon may be the answer.
Dallas Goedert (PHI) vs. NE
He's been in the TE8 since week 6, and while touchdowns have certainly played a role, he's also fifth among the tight targets at this time. Now that DeSean Jackson is officially in the injured's reserve, we should continue the big role. The patriots have done an excellent job defending broad recipients. Follow goals with tight ends, and it's clear Goedert will get enough to think about.
If available: Jason Witten (DAL) at DET
D / STs
Washington Redskins vs. NYJ
Some may see the Redskins thinking, "How can I trust a team with a win ? " It's a fair question, but the defense was not the biggest problem. They have offered solid ground and have played an average of 2.7 sacks in the last seven games, including at least two sacks in each of the last five games. In the meantime, the jets' offensive was appalling and only scored more than 16 points in the season. They have also approved 37 sacks in season, averaging 4.6 sacks per game. There was no better matchup for fantasy defenses, and yes, that includes the Dolphins. New York Jets at WAS From now on we do not know which quarterback will be in the center for Redskins in Week 11, but we know that they have allowed at least three sacks in six of their last seven games. The jets have put quarterbacks under pressure at an average of 35.9 percent, making them the 13th highest mark in the league. However, they have managed to dismiss quarterbacks with just 4.1 percent of the dropbacks, which corresponds to the third-lowest mark. The Redskins should be the key to reaching that number, and if Dwayne Haskins starts, they should have a good chance of making some sales.
Alternative: Cleveland Browns vs. PIT
