3 Fantasy Football Defensive Streaming Options for Week 14
Week 13 was a disappointing one for our streamers, as only the Seattle Seahawks finished as a top-12 option. The Green Bay Packers played so poorly against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday that Mike McCarthy was fired after the game, and the Kansas City Chiefs had 3 sacks and 3 turnovers against the Oakland Raiders, but also allowed 33 points.
Even with the Packers dismal performance in Week 13, our top streaming option of the week is averaging 9.7 points per game in standard scoring leagues. That is the third best mark among all fantasy defenses, trailing only the Chicago Bears (12 points per game) and the Houston Texans (9.8).
Entering Week 14, it's playoff time in many fantasy leagues. Presumably, if you're still reading this column, you've made the playoffs in your league, so congratulations on that! But now it's time to find a waiver-wire defense that could be the difference-maker in advancing to round two. In Week 14, we're targeting two home favorites and one home underdog.
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 14.
