Streaming Defenses: Navigating the Fantasy Playoffs

Streaming defenses uses the Streaming D app and the wizardry of Jeremy Marin and Matt Wispe to provide the best low-owned defensive options each week. Week 11 signifies the impending approach of most fantasy leagues’ playoffs. If you are already locked into the playoffs and/or have extra bench spots available to you, now is the time to think about the best streaming defenses for the championship run. Let’s look at a couple of different ways to go about this.

Locking in one defense with three plus matchups

Obviously, this strategy is ideal, as you do not sacrifice any bench spots to extra defenses. Using the Streaming D app and filtering for weeks 14 through 16, we see the best options available.

    If we take Week 14 out (I’m currently in position for a bye), who do you like better for Weeks 15-16?

    Detroit (Bears, at Bengals)
    Washington (Cards, Broncos)
    Carolina (Packers, Bucs)
    Minnesota (Bengals, at Packers)

    If I could only roster 1, maybe Washington or Detroit right? If I can roster 2?

  2. Hi Mychal, sorry I did not see this earlier. I would go with Washington here. Denver is giving up so many fantasy points and Paxton Lynch is going to start soon, so it could get worse before it gets better for the Broncos. If you roster 2, I would do Vikings and Washington for weeks 15 and 16.

    No worries! Situation hasn't changed. All these defenses are still up for grabs before tonight's waiver processing.

    Curious about your thought process behind preferring these teams over Detroit at least for Week 15. The Lions have been pretty consistent in fantasy scoring. Do you think the Bears are getting it together?

  4. It's more that the Lions have scored a ridiculous 7 defensive/special teams touchdowns and if they don't score one, they are usually mediocre. It's hard to predict touchdowns for any position, especially defense and special teams
