Streaming Defenses: Picking a Week 9 Team Defense
Streaming Defenses: Picking a Week 9 Team Defense

This article is part of our Streaming Defenses series.

With six teams on bye, last week's column featured four streaming recommendations instead of the usual five. The first three pick — Cincinnati (15 points), Buffalo (14), New Orleans (eight) — each finished tied for 11th or better in Yahoo! standard scoring among team defenses, while the fourth (Miami) was buried at No. 24 with only one fantasy point.

Week 9 brings us another shortened slate with only 26 teams in action, but the streaming options on waivers look quite a bit better, in part because some of the teams coming out of a bye week draw favorable matchups Sunday. The Cardinals, Rams and Titans were dropped in many leagues, with owners either unwilling or unable to roster them through a bye. We're thus back to five recommendations, though I'll admit to not having a ton of confidence in the fourth and fifth choices.

Note: These recommendations are limited to D/ST units with under 60 percent ownership on Yahoo! as of Tuesday morning.
