3 Fantasy Football Defensive Streaming Options for Week 10

The New York Jets get to take on the Buffalo Bills, a team we've picked on all season. Which other defenses sitting on the waiver wire can you pick up and play this week?

Week 9 wasn't one of our greatest performances of the season. Our top option, the Kansas City Chiefs finished just outside the top-12 in weekly scoring, finishing 14th with 4 points. Miraculously, the Dallas Cowboys came through with the eighth-best fantasy score on the week after the team allowed a Tennessee Titans offense to put up a season-high 28 points on Monday night.

But while the Chiefs and Cowboys posted so-so scores, the Miami Dolphins came through in a big way, finishing as the second-best fantasy defense on the week. The Dolphins had four sacks on Sam Darnold and four interceptions, including one for a pick-six, in their 13-6 win.

Although the Chiefs were a bit of a disappointment this week, our top streaming option of the week is still averaging 12.4 points per game. That's tied with the Chicago Bears for the best points per game average among all defenses this season.

Heading into Week 10, we're targeting two big home favorites and a road team facing a struggling division rival for the second time this season.

For any new readers, 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 10.
