3 QB Streamers (Week 1)

Week 1 is now upon us and it's very important that you start the Quarterback with the juiciest matchup. If you don't like the week 1 matchup of yours then you definitely want to stream one of the following guys. 

Alex Smith

I love Alex Smith this week against the awful Chargers defense. San Diego has not made much improvement from last year. In fact, some may argue that the Chargers are even worse than last year. I believe that the Chiefs will easily put up points and the fact that Jamaal Charles likely won't play just means that Smith will have to do a little more in the passing game. I also expect Philip Rivers and the Chargers to put up some points and keep the game close enough so that Smith must continue to throw. Smith is by far my favorite streamer for week 1.

Brock Osweiler

I don't believe that Brock is a great quarterback but that doesn't actually matter in fantasy very much. Osweiler will face the terrible Bears defense in week 1 and he has the incredible DeAndre Hopkins on his team. Texans also added rookie speedster Will Fuller who has big play potential. Oh and let's not forget the numerous screen passes that Lamar Miller converted into touchdowns last year in Miami. I know the Texans are a run first team but Osweiler will throw some and he provides a safe floor with a decent ceiling given the matchup.

Joe Flacco

Nothing sexy about playing Joe Flacco as your starting quarterback but hey a win is a win right? The average Joe is home to the Buffalo Bills and he finally has a healthy roster with a strong supporting cast of capable receivers around him. The Bills are also playing without Marcell Dareus who greatly weakens their overall defense. There is also much speculation about how strong of a defense the Bills really are this year. If the other QBs on this list are taken then I think Flacco is a decent option to stream with the largest ceiling among the 3 listed because it is very possible that these two high powered offenses will find themselves in a shootout.
