Defense/Special Teams streaming has been a popular option for a while now for fantasy owners. But quarterback streaming has begun being put into use just recently, it seems. As the demand grows we must meet it with a supply of fantasy articles. Each week I’ll highlight as many appealing quarterbacks and defenses fantasy owners can pick up for that week to stream in their starting lineups. As the season progresses, more options will appear as teams and players are dropped and we discover who’s real and who’s not. If you have any questions about these picks or fantasy football in general, hit me up on Twitter @44AMiller.

1. Josh McCown (14%, 30%) at Chicago – McCown has thrown for 589 yards, four scores and 47 rushing yards in his two games since taking over as starter in Tampa. Now he gets the easiest team to score against for quarterbacks, who’ve given up the second-most touchdowns and 11th-most yards on the season. It just gets worse for the Bears, though, because they’ve allowed 14 touchdowns and picked off just one pass in their last four games. Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson present mismatches for the Bears secondary, and as long as one of them dominates so will McCown.
