As we reach week four, your fantasy football wide receivers may be decimated. With guys like Dez Bryant and Eric Decker on the shelf this week, and Willie Snead questionable, you may have to snag a guy off the wire. Here are some options for you in this week’s streaming wide receivers All Stream Team. All streaming candidates in the All Stream Team articles are owned in fewer than 50% of Yahoo! Fantasy Football Leagues, with one player being owned in less than 10% (for you deep divers).
Jamison Crowder versus Cleveland (45% owned)
Crowder is quickly becoming one of the worst-kept secrets in the NFL coming off a 4/78/1 game on seven targets last week. His touchdown was a 55-yard screen pass, so that tells you all you need to know about his shiftiness. This week he takes on a Browns team who have allowed the third-most fantasy points to wide receivers this season, yielding six touchdowns in three games to five different wide receivers. With Crowder getting an ever-increasing volume of targets, it’s likely the last week he will be eligible for the stream team.
Anquan Boldin at Chicago (20% owned)
Golden Tate’s rapid cratering isn’t for no reason. Marvin Jones, Anquan Boldin, and Eric Ebron have become Matthew Stafford’s preferred receivers. Boldin is one of the best third-down and end zone receivers in the game thanks to his sure route running, his even surer hands and his angry demeanor towards those who will seek to deny him the football. The Lions take on the hapless Bears defense in what promises to be a shootout, so there will be at least one end zone target going Boldin’s way if everything goes to plan. And if Boldin has anything to say about it, he’s going to come down with it.
Terrance Williams at San Francisco (8% owned)
With the announcement Friday that Dez Bryant will miss Sunday’s contest against San Francisco, Terrance Williams is set to see a massive uptick in targets. He should be owned much higher than 8% since it’s starting to look like we aren’t going to be sure how long Dez will be out exactly. At this point, Cole Beasley is Dak Prescott’s preferred receiver, likely due to Dez pulling coverage. Now Beasley will be the one pulling coverage, allowing for Williams to have more opportunities.
Dak said this was the case earlier this season when he stated it was his job to get the ball to the open receiver, not to Dez Bryant. This weekend that should be Williams, which means he’ll have plenty of opportunities to produce for you and your fantasy football squads.
