Quarterback Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers - Week 17

The fantasy season is over for most, but some of you crazy people have Week 17  championships.

Quarterback Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers - Week 14

It's playoff time in fantasyland, and while the playoffs generally mean fewer owners streaming quarterbacks, those that do stream will need to be even more diligent in their research.

Quarterback Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers - Week 13

With Week 12 mostly in the books, bye weeks are finally behind us, and the need for quarterback fill-ins should taper off significantly.

Quarterback Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers - Week 12

We saw some monster weeks at the quarterbacks position, with four quarterbacks topping 37 points, and ten scoring over 25 points. These weren't all big names putting up these points either, as low-owned quarterbacks like Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, and even Jeff Driskel had some big numbers in Week 11. That means we've got plenty... Read More

Quarterback Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers - Week 11

We've got plenty to unpack at the quarterback position following an exciting Week 10.

Quarterback Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers - Week 9

We have no new major quarterback injuries as of writing this, but the injuries from past weeks have really thinned out the waiver wire for those of us who stream quarterbacks.

Quarterback Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers - Week 8

Tragedy struck a few top quarterbacks this week, as both Patrick Mahomes and Matt Ryan left games with injuries.

Quarterback Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers - Week 7

Quarterback Waiver Wire Pickups and Streamers - Week 5

The year of the backup continued in Week 4, with Mitch Trubisky going down early against Minnesota and Case Keenum taking a well-deserved benching in Washington.
