Streaming Defenses: Week 11 Targets

Streaming Defenses: Week 11 Targets

Last week, the Green Bay defense finished with 14 fantasy points and were the DEF3 in most scoring formats. Through 10 weeks, our streaming targets are averaging 9.5 fantasy points per game.

This week, you will want to continue targeting defenses with home matchups who are favorited and facing teams with low implied team totals. We also want to target offenses with a below-average or rookie QB.

Generally, defenses have to be available on the waiver wire in at least 40 percent of Yahoo fantasy leagues to be eligible as a streaming option. This ensures we are talking about defenses that are readily available. Week 11 is in our sights, so let's look at the defensive options we're targeting this week.

Top Streaming Options

Arizona Cardinals vs. Oakland Raiders

A battle between two flounder offenses, however, I like the Arizona defense to control this game.

Markus Golden and Chandler Jones lead the front-four of the defensive line and are consistently getting to the backfield. Oakland's offensive line contains a turnstile by the name of Kolton Miller who doles out the sacks as if they were on the clearance rack. Jones is a threat for multiple sacks and is coming off a two-sack effort in Week 10.

Hasson Reddick has been efficient from the outside with his pass rush snaps. On 46 snaps, he's registering a 19.6 percent pressure rate. Josh Bynes is capable of getting to the QB—he's been responsible for two QB hits and a sack.

Patrick Peterson will blanket the opposing team's best receiver, although, he doesn't get targeted often because of his coverage. He will take advantage if the ball is thrown his way.

The Raiders don't have many offensive threats. Derek Carr is having to hurry the ball because of the pressure and it's led to eight INTs and over 25 sacks. The Cardinals are home favorites and the Raiders have been generous to opposing defenses, ranking 27th in aFPA to the position.

Arizona's defense is available in 87 percent of leagues.

Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans
