With two big-time quarterbacks on byes this week (Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert), many of us are going to need to find a streaming option under center. That's why I'm looking at Daniel Jones this week, given the designed QB-run concepts we see in Giants coach Brian Daboll's offensive playbook.

There's more in here, too, including a signal-caller for 2-QB formats, some volume runners and a rookie tight end who can stretch the middle of the field. I've identified some key players -- all rostered in less than 50% of ESPN leagues -- who can be picked up for this week's slate of NFL games. While you might notice some overlap with Eric Moody's pickup column that publishes on Mondays, an important distinction is that the options mentioned in this column are focused solely on this week's matchup and not the players' values for the remainder of the season.

With all of that in mind, let's get into it with the top streaming options for your Week 8 fantasy lineups.
