Week 7 Streaming Picks

By Matt Schauf 11:10am EDT 10/17/18


Jameis Winston's return taught us a couple of things:

1) Winston's outlook appears just as bright as we hoped.

He didn't just deliver for us in his 1st start of the year. Winston did his best Ryan Fitzpatrick impression and led all fantasy passers through a loss to the Falcons. Winston now faces a bottom-half QB schedule the rest of the way, according to our Strength-of-Schedule page. But the worst statistical matchup on the slate comes this weekend against the Browns at his place. And I'm not pushing Winston outside of fantasy-starter territory for a home date with a D that allowed 2 of its past 3 opponents to reach 38 points.

2) O.J. Howard is the Bucs TE to own.

This one doesn't sport a direct correlation to Winston (other than him being their QB). But Winston used to be the QB throwing a bunch of TDs to Cameron Brate. And he did so again early in Sunday's loss to the Falcons. But that turned out to be the only target for the week's most popular DFS TE. Brate played his 2nd-lowest snap share of the season (33%), spending 1 fewer down on the field than TE Anthony Auclair and 12 fewer than Howard. That came just 2 weeks after Howard sustained an MCL sprain.

Brate might well show up for an occasional TD the rest of the way. But he's also droppable this week for a different solution.
