Rush Nation, I am back with another I Streamed a Stream article. This week was ok. The Wide Receiver position worked out very well, as did the QB position. The Running Back position was the biggest disappointment this week as Williams didn’t get the production I expected.
This week I am hoping to get some more good results. I am only 15 points behind the QB2 overall. I am also very close to the K2. However, I feel I am at my ceiling in terms of D/ST for the season, as the top 3 have seemed to get away. They will be too difficult to close down with just 4 games to go.
With a lot of teams going with Running Back by Committee or a lot of backs getting owned, the Waiver Wire is very thin with options. It is just a case of pick a guy and hope he produces. Same goes with Wide Receivers. It’s just about making smart choices. I have 3 weeks left to make some big gains, so I will be going for broke now.
However, I still have a QB1, a TE1, a K1, and a D/ST1. For those of you who aren’t familiar, I am comparing this to the standard 12 team league and I am looking to achieve a number 1 ranked player in each position. At this point I am only 18 points off the best Kicker overall in Fantasy Football. I also am in decent position for QB, TE and D/ST finishes.
As it currently stands, I currently rank:
QB: 4th Overall- No Gain
RB: 36th Overall- Down 3
WR: 30th Overall- Up 6
TE: 9th Overall- Up 1
K: 6th Overall- Up 1
D/ST: 7th Overall- Down 2
Remember, I am only using using players who are under 30% owned from when I look at the players for our Waiver Wire article on Monday.
I will not end up with a RB1 or RB2, nor will I end up with a WR1. If I can sneak a WR2 in based on the gains in the last 2 weeks, that would be amazing. I trail the WR2 last man by 12 points, so will need some luck to get there, but it’s just a gain of 4 points per week.
Washington was my best performance, finishing as the WR11 on the week. No one else was in the top 12 of their position.
All in all, I just need to keep having big weeks. But I feel I might struggle to get a RB2 and WR2.
This week, I am looking to consolidate on last week. Running Back seems to be the biggest challenge this week. If you want to play along with me, go back to the Waiver Wire article we published on Monday.
I am also challenging any of you to a duel. Have a look at the ownership numbers on ESPN.co.uk and if you find better selections that are under 30% owned, then submit your picks and we will create a tab on the website. Trust me, it is not as easy as it looks. Not that I am making this look easy.
My stream selections for this week are as follows:
There isn’t a great deal on the Waiver Wire. I have gone for Raheem Mostert after two great performances in a row. Tannehill has been stellar for the last three games and Griffin has been getting Touchdowns.
As per yesterday’s Waiver Wire column, I am banking on Miller to get a few more catches and yards. I also believe he gets into the end zone again this week.
Please go back and read the previous stream columns, and track the progress with me. It’s been fun so far. However, I know that it will get harder week to week, until we get to the last couple of weeks of the season. Please do also interact with us via the site or via twitter.
Please reach out to me on twitter @5yardrush. But until another look at the stream Rush Nation, Keep Rushing.
