We're now into the championship week for most fantasy football leagues. Every single fantasy point matters that much more this week, and you can't afford to coast by on the players that got you here. If you need an upgrade at quarterback, don't be afraid to pull the plug on your starter in favor of a QB with a great matchup in Week 16.

Here are our top three streaming quarterback picks, rostered in fewer than 50% of Yahoo! leagues, to target in Week 16.

3. Mitchell Trubisky, Chicago Bears (at JAX)

Since returning to the Chicago Bears' starting lineup in Week 12, Mitchell Trubisky has thrown for 978 yards with 8 touchdowns and just 3 interceptions across four games — averaging 17.6 fantasy points per game during that stretch. That's not an elite average (would rank 15th among QBs with 6-plus games on the season), but it's solid, and he brings it into an outstanding matchup in Week 16. The Jacksonville Jaguars have allowed the league's second-most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs on the year.

2. Baker Mayfield, Cleveland Browns (at NYJ)

Speaking of dreamy matchups, the New York Jets have allowed the third-highest fantasy output at the QB position. And one-upping Trubisky's four-week heater, Baker Mayfield is averaging a stellar 24.5 fantasy points per game across his last four. There's little not to like about Mayfield this week.

1. Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles (at DAL)

Jalen Hurts showed some promise in his first start, scoring 19.3 fantasy points in a tough matchup against the New Orleans Saints. He really blew up in Week 15, however, going off for 37.8 fantasy points against the Arizona Cardinals. He's added double-digit fantasy points just with his rushing stats in both games, and last week he showed he can get it done in the air too, throwing for 338 yards and 3 touchdowns. Don't expect him to slow down against the Dallas Cowboys, who rank 24th in Football Outsiders' defensive DVOA metric, including 20th against the pass and 25th against the run.
