This column gave some decent advice last week, with two of our three streaming picks finishing inside the top-13 QBs. Our biggest miss was Trevor Lawrence, who had an underwhelming week at QB20.

Let's see if we can't improve on that in Week 9.

Streaming QB Week 9

3. Daniel Jones, New York Giants (49% Rostered)

This is probably the last time we'll be able to recommend Daniel Jones, as he'll likely be rostered in more than 50% of leagues this time next week. So let's use him while we still can. If we throw out Week 4 (when Jones left with an injury), the Giants' signal-caller has put up at least 16 points in six of his seven appearances, including three 20-point performances. That gives him a high floor and ceiling, which is exactly what you want in fantasy. Things shouldn't look much different against Las Vegas Raiders' defense that's below average in pass defense DVOA.

2. Taysom Hill, New Orleans Saints (3% Rostered)

If Taysom Hill returns from his concussion, he looks like a QB1 in Week 9. Hill will face the Falcons' bottom-four pass defense by DVOA on Sunday. Atlanta also allows top-five fantasy production to opposing QBs. When we last saw Hill work as the Saints starting passer, he finished inside the top-13 at the position in each of his four starts. He's a rock-solid QB1 this week if he plays, but just be sure to monitor his status throughout the week. He'd likely top this list if he was fully healthy, but the uncertainty around his availability bumps him down to No. 3.

1. Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins (36% Rostered)

Tua Tagovailoa is an absolute no brainer this week. He has put up at least 20 points in two of his first three starts since coming back from injury. The only miss came against the Buffalo Bills, who have been the best scoring defense in football and are a brutal matchup for this Dolphins' O-Line. Now Tua gets to face the Houston Texans, who are arguably the league's worst defense. If you need a QB, Tua feels like the safest bet to post a top-10 finish this week.
