With Patrick Mahomes and Kyler Murray on bye this week, fantasy managers may be in need of a waiver-wire replacement. That's where these three streaming options come into play.

Here are three of the best streaming options, rostered in fewer than 50% of Yahoo fantasy leagues, to target in Week 12.

Fantasy Football Streaming QBs Week 12

3. Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars (32% Rostered)

Trevor Lawrence has been held to single-digit fantasy points in three straight games. But it's hard to fault him too much. Each of those three defenses own top-13 defensive DVOA ratings, including the top-ranked Buffalo Bills and No. 10 Indianapolis Colts. Now he draws a matchup with the Atlanta Falcons, who surrender the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs. If he's ever going to have a big game, now is the time.

2. Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons (50% Rostered)

Matt Ryan finds himself in a pretty similar situation, so it's fitting that these two will be playing each other on Sunday. Ryan has scored fewer than 2.5 fantasy points in back-to-back games, but those games came against the Dallas Cowboys (No. 3 in pass defense DVOA) and the New England Patriots (No. 5). Now, he gets to face the Jacksonville Jaguars, who own the league's second-worst pass defense DVOA rating. Ryan looks poised for a bounce-back performance this week.

1. Jimmy Garoppolo, San Francisco 49ers (33% Rostered)

Is that Jimmy Garoppolo's music!? The San Francisco 49ers quarterback has come out of nowhere, ranking as fantasy's QB3 since Week 8. He's been consistent too, scoring at least 15 points in four straight games including two performances with 19-plus points. The only reason he didn't do more over his last two is because the 49ers won both in blowout fashion. But the Minnesota Vikings' offense should be able to keep this game pretty close. And Minnesota's defense surrenders the seventh-most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs. Garoppolo's mix of a high floor and ceiling is exactly what you're looking for in a streaming QB.
