Fantasy QB Streamers and Rankings Week 12: Matthew Stafford and Jordan Love Headline QB Options

Matthew Stafford and Jordan Love should be on your radar if you're a QB streamer entering Week 12 -- it all depends on what your roster needs!

There are no teams on bye this week, so we have a full slate of available fantasy football QB streamers to fill out your lineup. Who are the optimal options as we approach the fantasy postseason?

Top QB Streamers for Week 12

Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams (at Cardinals)

We’ve yet to see Stafford offer much in the way of fantasy upside, but this is a QB streamers article — you’re not asking for extended or sustained value.

We saw C.J. Stroud expose this Cardinals defense in the first half of Week 11, and while the second half was a different story, that first half was more in line with what we’ve seen this season from an Arizona defense that ranks bottom 10 in yards per pass attempt allowed this season.

Take it a step further. Over his past four games against the Cardinals, Stafford has averaged:

  • 71.9% completion rate
  • 14.0 yards per completion
  • 10.0 yards per attempt

Kyler Murray adding some juice to this offense only raises the potential for a strong scoring environment. Give me a veteran QB in a comfort spot with a pair of high-end target earners, and I’ll take my chance if I’m low on options at the quarterback position. Stafford may not win you this week, but he has a shot to keep you competitive, and that’s all you can ask for from a streamer!

Jordan Love, Green Bay Packers (at Lions)

For a second consecutive week, Love threw 40 passes with multiple touchdowns. It’s rarely pretty, but his field-stretching approach and willingness to spread the ball around (six different players saw 4-6 targets) gives him a path to fantasy relevance when he isn’t forcing the issue.

Naturally, he carries a ton of risk. He has three multi-interception games this season and has failed to complete even 60% of his passes six times. Love is far from a perfect option, but if you’re forced into streaming the position this week, you need a ceiling and must be willing to overlook the warts.

Will Levis, Tennessee Titans (vs. Panthers)

After a pair of scoreless games, Levis showed glimpses of the promise we saw in his debut. He’s far from a “safe” option, but if you’re in a deeper format or looking for a DFS flier, the talent is obvious, and a matchup with a high blitz, low-pressure defense is perfect.

The Titans (3-7) aren’t going anywhere this season, and that only helps elevate the fantasy stock of Levis, as the team’s primary motivation is to get a good feel for what their second-round pick has to offer.
