We had an up-and-down week with our top quarterback streaming picks for Week 5.

Daniel Jones and Kirk Cousins both finished outside the top-12 QBs, but Justin Herbert had the third-best performance among all QBs last week.

With that in mind, here are our three best streaming picks, rostered in fewer than 50 percent of Yahoo! leagues, for Week 6.

Fantasy QBs to Stream in Week 6

3. Andy Dalton, Dallas Cowboys (3% Rostered)

Andy Dalton is obviously a huge drop-off from Dak Prescott for the Dallas Cowboys. But for fantasy purposes, he should do just fine. This offense is still absolutely loaded with talent and it's arguably the best skill-position group the Red Rifle has ever played with. He was fine in relief, averaging 10.1 yards per attempt. Dalton should be solid against an Arizona Cardinals' secondary that checks in as a bottom-10 unit against the pass, per Football Outsiders' DVOA metrics.

2. Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings (32% Rostered)

We just can't seem to quit Kirk Cousins. Though he's had back-to-back underwhelming fantasy showings, he draws one of the best matchups possible this Sunday. His Minnesota Vikings will take on the extremely beatable Atlanta Falcons' secondary. Atlanta is allowing the second-most passing yards per game this season, and the Falcons currently check in as the league's second-worst pass defense, according to Football Outsiders' DVOA metrics. This is a great bounce-back spot for Cousins.

1. Ryan Fitzpatrick, Miami Dolphins (21% Rostered)

Ryan Fitzpatrick has been on an absolute tear over the past four weeks. He's put up at least 21.3 points in each of his last four starts, checking in as fantasy's QB5 during that span. With a Week 5 matchup against the New York Jets, there's no reason to believe he'll slow down any time soon.
