3 Fantasy Football Defensive Streaming Options for Week 7
It was another successful week for our streaming picks, with all three teams finishing as top-12 plays on the week. The New York Jets (6th) and Dallas Cowboys (8th) were both top-10 plays while our top streaming option, the Green Bay Packers (12th), snuck into the top-12.
With the 7.0 points scored by the Packers on Monday night, our top streaming picks from Weeks 1-6 are now averaging 11.5 points per game. That ranks second among all defenses in points per game this season, behind only the Chicago Bears.
Heading into Week 7, we're targeting a backup quarterback, one quarterback on the verge of being benched, and one side in a division rivalry.
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 is 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 7.
