Last week was something of a mixed bag for this column. Our top streaming QB pick for Week 7, Tua Tagovailoa, finished as the QB3 in fantasy football. Daniel Jones delivered a solid 16.5-point showing, but Justin Fields absolutely laid an egg with his 1.12 points.

Let's see if we can't find a little more consistency heading into Week 8.

Streaming QB Week 8

3. Carson Wentz, Indianapolis Colts (38% Rostered)

After an uninspiring start, Carson Wentz has played some solid football. He has 8 touchdowns to 0 interceptions over his last four games. Now he gets a matchup with the Tennessee Titans. His Indianapolis Colts are 1.5-point home underdogs in a game that is tied for the fourth-highest over/under on this week's slate. Potentially playing catchup at home against a below-average pass defense by DVOA is usually a pretty good recipe for success.

2. Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars (41% Rostered)

Trevor Lawrence has quietly started to string together some solid performances. He's hit at least 15.9 points in three straight starts now, and is coming off arguably his most complete game of the season in Week 6. Now he draws a matchup with a Seattle Seahawks defense that ranks bottom eight in pass defense DVOA. This is a nice spot for the rookie.

1. Daniel Jones, New York Giants (28% Rostered)

Even after a few down games, Daniel Jones is still fantasy's QB15 on the season. He's in a potential blow-up spot against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 8. KC is arguably the league's worst defense, sporting the NFL's second-worst pass defense DVOA mark while surrendering the second-most fantasy points to opposing passers. Jones, who can also do damage with his legs, has some serious upside in Week 8.
