Though Teddy Bridgewater has been a solid streaming quarterback this year, it might not be worth playing him against a surging Washington Football Team defense in Week 16.

Fantasy Football analysis: Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater

Even without having a passing touchdown in the last two games combined and having eight games with one or less the entire year, Bridgewater has been able to put up reasonable numbers that make him a reliable streaming option each week. In his last two games, he’s averaged 18.67 points even without throwing a touchdown. How? He had committed just one turnover and rushed for two touchdowns, one in each game.

This might not be the week to stream him, though, as the Washington Football Team has been stout against opposing quarterbacks. They allow just 16.32 points per-game to the position, good enough to be the sixth toughest pass defense. In last week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, Russell Wilson had his second-lowest fantasy game of the year, scoring 12.04 points. The WFT hasn’t allowed more than 20 points in the last five games, as quarterbacks have averaged just 13.47 fantasy points in the span.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
