Week 13 Fantasy Football Defensive Streaming: Playing the Packers
Last week, two out of our three defensive streaming options put forth a top-8 defensive performance. Our top option, the New Orleans Saints, finished as the eighth-best defense on the week while the Pittsburgh Steelers came through for us again, finishing as the fifth-best scoring defense on the week.
But with that performance from the Saints, we're now averaging 9.8 points per game from our primary streaming option -- the one listed in the headline -- which, among team defenses, is good enough to rank us as the fourth-best on the year in standard scoring leagues.
Now that we're onto Week 13, we may be needing a win to make it into the fantasy playoffs. Unfortunately for those of us streaming defenses, there aren't many appealing matchups this week. Our top option is in a plum spot, though, and two teams for the NFC East make the list this week.
As always, we're combing through the waiver wire to identify low-owned defenses that have a great matchup. For this exercise, we're focusing on teams that are less than 50% owned on both ESPN and Yahoo. Our goal is to identify units poised to finish as a top-12 scorer this week.
