Streaming Defenses: Week 11 Options

Streaming Defenses: Week 11 Options

This article is part of our Streaming Defenses series.

Week 10 was another solid one for this space, with our top streaming pick (New Orleans) finishing second among all defenses at 14 fantasy points. The other four recommendations were less impressive, but they did each manage at least three points, leaving us with an overall average of 7.4 for the five teams listed.

Week 11 appears similarly favorable for streaming, as six of the Top 8 defenses in my weekly rankings are available on waivers in a lot of fantasy leagues. Even better, some of those teams also have friendly matchups ahead in Weeks 12 and 13, potentially setting up a situation where it makes sense to use the same defense for three or four consecutive games. Even a devout streamer like myself can appreciate spending a little less time on waivers/FAAB and a little more time on other hobbies.

Note: These recommendations are limited to team defenses that are rostered on less than 60 percent of teams on Yahoo or 45 percent on ESPN. Any references to fantasy points are based on Yahoo standard scoring, which doesn't include yards allowed.
