There are a few highly-touted quarterbacks that have underperformed thus far, at least from a fantasy football perspective. The two biggest names in that group are probably Tom Brady and Drew Brees, who were both drafted as top-10 quarterbacks in the offseason.

If you'e looking for a replacement for either option, or simply looking for an upgrade at the position, here are the three best streaming quarterbacks for Week 3.

Note: All three options are rostered in fewer than 50% of Yahoo! fantasy football leagues.

Fantasy QBs to Stream Week 3

3. Mitchell Trubisky, Atlanta Falcons (8% Rostered)

You'll probably never feel good about starting Mitchell Trubisky, but he's actually been a pretty solid fantasy producer. He had a 24.3-point performance in Week 1, but underwhelmed with a 13.2-point outing last week. He's in play here due to the matchup, though. The Atlanta Falcons have allowed 35.6 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks through two weeks. They're getting torched to the tune of 386.0 passing yards and 2.5 passing TDs per game. Trubisky is a high-risk, high-reward option here.

2. Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans (46% Rostered)

Ryan Tannehill has followed up his remarkable 2019 campaign with a really strong start this season. He's currently the QB9 through two weeks and he draws a soft matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. Though most believed this unit would be a formidable one, that hasn't been the case thus far, ranking as a bottom-12 group in Football Outsiders' DVOA metrics. There's no reason to think Tannehill will slow down this week.

1. Gardner Minshew, Jacksonville Jaguars (33% Rostered)

This is Gardner Minshew's third appearance on this list this season. Expect that to continue until his rostered percentage rises high enough to disqualify him from being selected here. Minshew was the QB12 in both of his stints as the Jacksonville Jaguars starter last year, and he's currently the QB11 in 2020. He has a chance to be even more dangerous than usual thanks to a juicy Week 3 matchup with the Miami Dolphins.
