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.
