Congratulations! No, you didn’t win money. However, you can make money succeeding in your fantasy football playoffs with the 2019 Fantasy Football Playoff Streamers.
Fantasy owners who made the fantasy playoffs were successful in making it through a regular fantasy season filled with promise and disappointments. Were you wise enough to draft Lamar Jackson? Or were you one of the unlucky souls who took Saquon Barkley as your top selection?
One of the most used fantasy football axioms is “Start your Studs.” However, as fantasy managers head into their fantasy playoffs, the only desired outcome is to have more weekly fantasy points than your opponent by any means necessary. To accomplish this, fantasy managers will need to stream players and take advantage of matchups.
I tackled each position and discovered streaming options for fantasy managers to insert in their fantasy lineups to win fantasy bragging rights.
If you are unlucky soul like me and do not own a top-tier quarterback, you are tied down to play the streaming game with your signal-callers.
This might seem daunting for some fantasy managers, but the top ones have already grabbed the quarterbacks they want to stream during their fantasy playoffs.
Please ensure that one of these quarterbacks is available for you to start in your fantasy football playoffs.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Miami Dolphins
Weeks 14-16: New York Jets, New York Giants, Cincinnati Bengals
Ryan Fitzpatrick is consistently producing and now has a go to receiver in DeVante Parker. Can Fitzmagic win you a fantasy football championship?

FitzMagic is alive and well in Miami as the Harvard grad possesses plenty of fantasy fortunes for owners in his next three matchups.
It is hard not to feel dirty in trusting Fitzpatrick. He does have a history of super-hot spells and then looking like a washed-up vet. Currently, Fitzpatrick is hot as ever. In his last two games, he has six total touchdowns (five passing, one rushing). The bearded one has revived the Dolphin faithful and has led them to three wins this season.
IF a fantasy manager could hand-select which defenses he/she wants their quarterback to play against in the fantasy playoffs, it’s hard not to argue with the three teams that Fitzpatrick will be facing in Weeks 14-16. Each team ranks in the bottom ten in fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks. Trust Ryan Fitzpatrick to your fantasy championship!
Ryan Tannehill, QB, Tennessee Titans
Weeks 14-16: Oakland Raiders, Houston Texans, New Orleans Saints
The former Dolphin took over for Marcus Mariota in Week 7 and has thrown for multiple touchdowns in five of his six starts this season.
Tannehill has great consecutive matchups to start the fantasy playoffs. Only the Tampa Bay Buccaneers give up more fantasy points to quarterbacks than his next two opponents, the Oakland Raiders and the Houston Texans.
The Week 16 contest against the New Orleans Saints might be a challenge but the way Tannehill is playing right now, it doesn’t matter. The former Aggie provides a steady floor and also contributes with his legs by rushing for three scores in his last four games.
Gardner Minshew, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars
Weeks 14-16: Los Angeles Chargers, Oakland Raiders, Atlanta Falcons

Even Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone has seen enough! Nick Foles has been dreadful since his return from his broken collarbone. The Jaguars came to their senses and placed Minshew back as the starting quarterback.
Fantasy managers will need to be patient with Minshew as his Week 14 matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers will be quite challenging. The Chargers are a top-tier pass defense, and Minshew will produce modest stats in this contest.
However, fantasy managers are streaming the rookie signal-caller for his upcoming tasty matchups against the Oakland Raiders and the Atlanta Falcons. The Jags passing attack should eat plenty in those two matchups providing MinshewMania to run wild!
