How many times have you heard someone tell you to "stream" a position? Whether it's quarterback, tight end, or defense, the idea of streaming is great, provided you get the players you want off the wire waiver. The issue week-to-week is that everyone knows who you can target in good matches and you may have that player from under you, or worse, your opponent that week may be snag just one player to make sure you don't get them.

We started this article so you don't have to worry anymore. Every Saturday morning, you go to your waiver wire and break the players lined up for great matchups next week. They could have a brutal matchup for the current week. Great, even better. It just means they are more available to you. By snagging them a week before, you eliminated the need to spend several FAAB dollars on the top tier defense everyone was pursuing. Here are the players with solid Week Matchups on tap and less than 40 percent possession.
Kyle Allen (CAR) vs ATL
Now that Cam Newton is on injured reserve, we can actively target Allen as a streamer in good matches. The Falcons have been gone for a week, so maybe you need a refresh on how bad they have become. The 7.63 percent touchdown-rate and 8.46 yards per attempt both rank as bottom-five in the league. Back last year, the Falcons now allowed 1
Nick Foles (JAX) to IND
Whether right or wrong, the Jaguars will return to Foles after bye week. The matchup is a good one too. The Colts have been a brick wall against running since Matt Eberflus took over as defensive coordinator at the start of last year, as no running back hit the 100-yard mark. Passing will be a major way of moving the ball, so it's not like we see 5-of-8 quarterbacks finish with at least 15.5 fantasy points against the Colts this year.
Kalen Ballage (MIA) vs BUF
It's funny to see fantasy owners evading Ballage. Despite having a starting job, he only owned 34 percent at the time I wrote it. While I am proud that every person is noticed by his inadequacies, he is the type of player to be selected bye week hell. Is he ineffective? Sure. Will he be used a lot in the passing game? I do not think so. Should he get a 12-plus touch to all goals in the goal line? Yep. In a matchup with Proposals that allowed 42 rushing touchdowns in 40 games under Sean McDermott, he was worth adding if you needed a streaming running back.
This Smith (ATL) in the CAR
He's dealing with a neck injury now, but if he can bring it back for this game, he has a streaming appeal. Overall, he was in the 6-12 touch range when on the field and an interesting statue I found this week received four of five carries within the five-yard-line available to the Falcons running back this year. That was an important tidbit against a Panthers team that allowed a quick touchdown of 15.6, more often than any other team in the league. They also allow for the most fantasy points at every opportunity (carries and targets), making it a game where Smith has to offer a decent amount of fantasy. 19659005] Phillip Dorsett (NE) to PHI
The Patriots were only able to run the ball against bad teams, let alone the Eagles shutdown. Tom Brady averaged nearly 40 attempts per game despite blasting their opponents nearly every game. Against the Eagles, we should expect more than 40 passing attempts, so why not put yourself in a starting wide receiver? There are eight wide receivers leading the PPR's 15 points against the Eagles, and none of them are heavy slots, which is good for Dorsett kicking in the perimeter with Edelman / Sanu getting slot snaps.  Ted Ginn (NO) to TB
He was in this article last week, so he doesn't count on your roster if you're streaming wide receivers. He had another plus-matchup next week when the Saints headed to Tampa Bay. They allow 45.5 PPR points per game to wide receivers, which is the most in the league, while allowing only the closest team to 42.2 points per game. Guys, there is only so much Michael Thomas can do.
Cole Beasley (BUF) to MIA
He continues to get work for streamers, as his tally is up to 9.0 or more PPR points in 7-of-8 games. He has scored in three straight games, which won't last, but against the Dolphins, it's possible. They allowed one touchdown per 10.1 targets (often in the NFL) while also allowing a high of 9.23 yards per target. He's not a high-upside play, but if you're looking for a solid floor, he should offer it.
Decent alternative options: Demaryius Thomas (NYJ) in WAS, Deebo Samuel (SF) vs ARI  Tight End
Chris Herndon (NYJ) in WAS
We have to assume we are coming back him for this game, right? She did the whole week, which was a step in the right direction. The Redskins provided a solid floor for streamers, as 6-of-9 starters finished as top-18 choices, including two top-eight performances. With Sam Darnold struggling to find his groove, perhaps the safety value to Herndon is the answer.
Dallas Goedert (PHI) vs NE
He's been the TE8 since Week 6, and while touchdowns have certainly played a big part in that, he's also ranked fifth in tight yards. end with targets over time. Now that DeSean Jackson is officially on the injured reserve, we should see a continuing role. The Patriots are doing a good job defending wide receivers but allowing some production in the middle of the field. Chase targets with tight ends, and it's clear that Goedert will see enough to deserve the streamer's consideration.
If available: Jason Witten (DAL) in DET
D / STs
Washington Redskins vs NYJ  Some might see the Redskins and think, "how can I trust a team that has a win? " This is a fair question, but defense is not the biggest problem. They have offered a solid floor while averaging 2.7 sacks in the last seven games, including at least two sacks in each of the last five games. Meanwhile, the Jets' offense has been staggering, scoring more than 16 points just once all season. They also allowed 37 sacks on the season, averaging 4.6 sacks per game. There has never been a better matchup for fantasy defenses, and yes, the Dolphins are.
New York Jets at WAS
As of now, we don't know which quarterback is under center for the Redskins in Week 11, but we do know that they allowed at least three sacks in six. in the last seven games. The Jets forced the quarterbacks an average of 35.9 percent, which is the 13th-highest mark in the league, but they managed to cover the quarterbacks with just 4.1 percent of the dropbacks, ranking as the third-lowest mark. The Redskins should be the key to getting that number, and if Dwayne Haskins starts, they should have a good shot at some turnovers.
Good replacement options: The Cleveland Browns vs PIT
