3 Fantasy Football Defensive Streaming Options for Week 15

The Falcons have struggled on defense all year, but they could get right in a home matchup with the Cardinals. Which other defenses sitting on the waiver wire can you pick up and play in Week 15?

Week 14 was another mixed bag for our defensive streaming options. Both the Arizona Cardinals and Tennessee Titans finished as top-10 options on the week. But unfortunately, our top option, the Buffalo Bills finished outside of the top-16 in their 27-23 loss to the New York Jets.

On the season, our top streaming option is now averaging 9.3 fantasy points per game in standard scoring leagues. That's tied with the Houston Texans for the third-best per game scoring average, trailing only the Chicago Bears (12.6 points per game) and Los Angeles Rams (9.6).

Heading into the all important Week 15, we're targeting two home favorites and one road underdog that has a top-5 defensive ranking, per numberFire metrics.

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 15.
