Streaming quarterbacks has become a very popular strategy in the fantasy football realm over the years. Finding the perfect matchup for a waiver wire quarterback is difficult given how much the NFL varies from week to week. Here we will discuss five of the best Week 4 streaming quarterbacks that are likely on the waiver wire for NFL fantasy football.
Week 4 Fantasy Football Streaming Quarterbacks
Sam Darnold — Carolina Panthers at Dallas Cowboys
Darnold and the Panthers are looking to keep their fire this week against the Cowboys after starting 3-0, and Darnold is QB11 at the moment. Last week against the Texans he went 23-for-34 for 304 yards and ran for a pair of touchdowns. Going up against the Cowboys this week, even without Christian McCaffrey, Darnold has top-10 fantasy upside. A huge bonus for Darnold is he has good matchups for the next four weeks against the Eagles, Vikings, Giants and Falcons.
Derek Carr — Las Vegas Raiders at Los Angles Chargers
Carr is currently QB8 on the year and is looking to keep that up this week against the Chargers. It is a miracle that Carr is still available in so many leagues at this point. Last week against the Dolphins he completed 37 of 43 passes for 386 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Carr has thrown for two touchdowns in every game this season. Facing the Chargers will be a tough test, but continue to ride on the hot streak with his play so far.
Jameis Winston — New Orleans Saints vs. New York Giants
Every week starting Winston feels like spinning the roulette wheel, but this week the risk is worth the shot, as he will face the Giants. Despite throwing for five touchdowns in Week 1, Winston is currently QB15. Last week against the Patriots he completed 13 of 21 passes for 128 yards and two touchdowns, a strong performance considering how tough it is for most quarterbacks to play against the Patriots defense. Even Matt Ryan looked good against the Giants, so Winston could have a week-winning performance this week.
Taylor Heinicke — Washington Football Team at Atlanta Falcons
Following the injury to Ryan Fitzpatrick, Heinicke was jolted into the starting role. He has played well in his first two starts against the Giants and the Bills. Last week he completed 14 of 24 attempts for 212 yards, two touchdowns and a pair of interceptions. He also rushed for a touchdown. While Daniel Jones was not able to put up a strong performance against the Falcons defense, Heinicke certainly could given his receiving weapons.
Teddy Bridgewater — Denver Broncos vs. Baltimore Ravens
Bridgewater disappointed immensely last week in a strong matchup against the Jets, going 19 of 25 for 235 yards. The Jets were stagnant, which meant that the Broncos did not have to let Bridgewater loose. If this is a higher-scoring game against the Ravens, Bridgewater will throw more.
