Week 5 Fantasy Football Defensive Streaming: Rolling With the Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens host the Washington Redskins in Week 5 in a matchup to target.

After a disappointing Week 3, we defensive streamers rebounded in Week 4 with one of our best weeks yet as all three of our streaming recommendations finished in the top-12.

The Detroit Lions finished tied for 8th in standard scoring leagues, while both the Jacksonville Jaguars and Washington Redskins finished tied for 10th.

On the season, 7 of our 12 recommendations have finished as top-12 units. More importantly, if you've followed our primary recommendation each week, you'd have rostered the seventh overall scoring defense through four weeks in standard scoring leagues. Not bad for picking through teams widely available on the waiver wire.

We'll check back on our overall work in another four weeks to see where we stand.

Now, it's onto the Week 5 picks.

As always, we're combing through the waiver wire to identify low-owned teams set up with a great matchup that can give you an edge each week. For this exercise, we're focusing on teams that are less than 50-percent owned on both ESPN and Yahoo. Our goal is to identify teams poised to finish as a top-12 scorer on that given week.
