RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Streveler completed 22 of 28 passes for 246 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Blue Bombers' 56-10 win over the Alouettes on Friday. He also rushed 10 times for 98 yards and another score.

The rookie apparently worked off all his jitters in his Week 1 start, as he looked like a seasoned pro from the opening kickoff Friday. Streveler had already completed 18 of 22 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns by halftime, supplementing those excellent numbers with 55 rushing yards and another score. That helped lead the Blue Bombers to a commanding 34-7 lead by intermission, limiting the need for Streveler to remain aggressive in the second half. However, he still managed to add another 83 yards of total offense before taking an early powder with the game well out of hand in the final period. Streveler seems to have eliminated any doubts about his ability to lead the Bombers offense in Matt Nichols' (knee) stead during the latter's absence, and he'll look to one-up his efforts in a Week 3 matchup against the Tiger-Cats.

Streveler completed 15 of 28 passes for 178 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Blue Bombers' 33-30 loss to the Eskimos on Thursday. He also rushed seven times for 30 yards.

The rookie gave a solid accounting of himself, considering he'd been unexpectedly thrust into a starting role just a week ago when Matt Nichols went down with a knee injury in practice. Streveler frequently displayed the athleticism he flashed during his prolific college career at South Dakota, going on the run on multiple occasions to escape pressure. Streveler showed particularly good rapport with Weston Dressler, who he found for his first career touchdown and connected with on a team-high four occasions for 74 yards overall. While a pair of interceptions served as a blemish, there were certainly plenty of encouraging signs to take from Streveler's debut. Given his ability to generate fantasy production through multiple means, he'll serve as another affordably priced tournament play in daily contests in a Week 2 battle against the Alouettes.

Streveler will start at quarterback in Thursday's season-opener against the Eskimos.

After a knee injury ruled out starter Matt Nichols for at least two months, the rookie Streveler will step in and serve as the Bombers' No. 1 quarterback for Week 1. Streveler signed with the team just over a month ago, and must have done plenty to impress the Winnipeg coaches after an impressive career at South Dakota. Alex Ross is expected to serve as his primary backup.

Streveler signed with the Blue Bombers on Friday.

Streveler signed on with the team following the CFL draft Thursday night. The quarterback played two seasons under center at South Dakota, throwing for 6,081 yards and 54 touchdowns and was named the Offensive Player of the Year in his conference in 2017. Streveler will spend training camp fighting for a roster spot, likely as a backup.
