3 Fantasy Football Defensive Streaming Options for Week 6

The Green Bay Packers host C.J. Beathard and the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. What other waiver-wire defenses can you pick up and play in Week 6?

Week 5 was another solid showing for our streaming options. The Cincinnati Bengals finished as the top overall scoring defense of the week, while the Carolina Panthers, our primary streaming option, finished as the sixth-best defense in Week 5. Our third recommendation, the Tennessee Titans, were decent, ranking 14th on the week.

But with the Panthers' 12-point performance, our top streaming option is now averaging 12.4 points on the season, which ranks as the second-best average of any defense. Let's keep the momentum going in Week 6.

This week, we're looking at a trio of home teams, all of which that have been on our streaming radar earlier this year.

As always, every week in this column we search the waiver wire to identify low-owned teams set up with a great matchup. The focus will be on teams owned in about 50% or fewer of Yahoo fantasy leagues. Our goal is to identify teams poised to be a top-12 scorer (start-able in standard leagues) for that given week.

Here are three defenses you can pick up off the waiver wire and play in Week 6.
