Championships have now been won and tears have been shed. It feels like yesterday that the season was starting and now it is over. Each week this column will analyze a player at each position rostered in 50 percent of Yahoo leagues or less. This group of players is basically a dream stream team. For reference, the threshold used for Wins and Losses in this article will be if the quarterbacks can score at least 17 points, if the tight ends can score at least eight PPR points, and if the rest can score at least 10 PPR points. Here is the 2021 stream team recap.

2021 Stream Team Recap

Quarterback Stream Team Recap

The quarterback group recommendations finished with a record of 22-29. That was the second-worst among the position groups. There were 18 different quarterbacks who made their way into the article throughout the season. Tua Tagovailoa made the most appearances as he showed up eight different times during the year. Unsurprisingly, Tagovailoa tied for the most wins at the position along with Teddy Bridgewater and Taysom Hill. All three of those quarterbacks reached the threshold for a win three separate times. Hill should be considered the most successful as he only busted once compared to three times for Bridgewater and five times for Tagovailoa. The five busts for Tagovailoa tied for the most along with Taylor Heinicke and Daniel Jones.

Throughout the season, some of these quarterbacks graduated out of the stream team rostership threshold as they were rostered in more than 50% of Yahoo leagues at different points in the season. Surprisingly though, only Derek Carr finished the season rostered in more than 50% of Yahoo leagues. Carr also finished with the most fantasy points among all the quarterbacks mentioned throughout the year with 276.62. That allowed him to finish as the QB12 on the season. Carr was also the leader in fantasy points per game at 17.29 which was good for a QB14 finish. That is a bit misleading, however, as Taysom Hill averaged 20.2 fantasy points per game as a starter.

Running Back Stream Team Recap

The running back group recommendations finished with a record of 20-31. That was the worst among the position groups. That is not much of a surprise given the landscape of running backs. There were 38 different running backs who made their way into the article throughout the season, the most of any position group. J.D. McKissic made the most appearances as he showed up four different times during the year. McKissic tied with 19 other running backs for the most wins at the position. Interestingly enough, no running back was able to accrue more than a single win. With running back values swinging so wildly, these guys either only had a week or two of relevance, or they became heavily rostered very quickly and that did not allow for many wins per player. Of the 20 running backs tied with a win, 14 of them only made a single appearance in the article, going 1-0. McKissic also single-handedly had the most busts with three.

Throughout the season, plenty of these running backs graduated out of the stream team rostership threshold as they were rostered in more than 50% of Yahoo leagues at different points in the season. Cordarrelle Patterson was a guy that graduated very early in the season after a super hot start. Despite a rough finish, Patterson finished the season rostered in 94% of Yahoo leagues, which was the most among any running back who was featured in the article during the season. There were 11 running backs in total to finish the season rostered in more than 50% of Yahoo leagues. Patterson also finished with the most fantasy points among all the running backs mentioned throughout the year with 238.40. That allowed him to finish as the RB7 on the season. Patterson was also the leader in fantasy points per game at 15.89 which was good for an RB15 finish.

Wide Receiver Stream Team Recap

The wide receiver group recommendations finished with a record of 29-22. That was the best among the position groups. There were 31 different wide receivers who made their way into the article throughout the season, the second-most of any position group. Hunter Renfrow made the most appearances as he showed up five different times during the year. The interesting part was that he kept producing yet it took people a while to finally buy in. Renfrow also led the way for the most wins at the position with four. No other wide receiver had more than two wins. There were, however, six wide receivers that each had two wins. McKissic also single-handedly had the most busts with three. Russell Gage, Rondale Moore, Kadarius Toney, and Jamison Crowder all tied for the most bust weeks with two each. Moore and Crowder were the worst of the bunch as neither had a win.

Throughout the season, plenty of these wide receivers graduated out of the stream team rostership threshold as they were rostered in more than 50% of Yahoo leagues at different points in the season. Renfrow finished the season rostered in 87% of Yahoo leagues, which was the most among any wide receiver who was featured in the article during the season. There were 11 wide receivers in total to finish the season rostered in more than 50% of Yahoo leagues. Renfrow also finished with the most fantasy points among all the wide receivers mentioned throughout the year with 251.20. That allowed him to finish as the WR11 on the season. Renfrow was also the leader in fantasy points per game at 15.70 which was good for a WR16 finish. Interestingly enough, Amon-Ra St. Brown finished the season on an absolute tear to finish the season putting his name among some all-time greats. He also had the most receiving yards in the last 10 years by a fourth-round rookie. Seems like he is pretty good.

Tight End Stream Team Recap

The tight end group recommendations finished with a record of 27-24. That was the second-best among the position groups. There were 18 different tight ends who made their way into the article throughout the season. Tyler Conklin made the most appearances as he showed up eight different times during the year. Unsurprisingly, Conklin tied for the most wins at the position along with Evan Engram. Both Conklin and Engram reached the threshold for a win four separate times. Engram should be considered the most successful as he did not bust even once whereas Conklin busted four times. That is very surprising considering that Conklin had a much better season than Engram did. The four busts by Conklin were not the most as Cole Kmet busted five separate times.

Throughout the season, some of these tight ends graduated out of the stream team rostership threshold as they were rostered in more than 50% of Yahoo leagues at different points in the season. Seven of the 18 tight ends actually finished the season rostered in more than 50% of Yahoo leagues. Dalton Schultz finished with the most fantasy points among all the tight ends mentioned throughout the year with 191.70. That allowed him to finish as the TE4 on the season. Schultz was also the leader in fantasy points per game at 11.98 which was good for a TE7 finish. In addition to Schultz, Dawson Knox, Zach Ertz, and Hunter Henry were also all stream team tight ends who finished in the top-12 in total fantasy points with Knox also finishing as a top-12 tight end in terms of fantasy points per game as well.
