Fantasy Football Defense Streaming Week 11: Picking on Inexperience
We’ve all been there. You’re sitting in your draft, and someone reaches for a defense way too early. Defenses are notoriously tricky to project year-over-year. Some of the best fantasy defenses of the last decade have turned in performances where they benefited from turnover luck one year and ran dry the next. When drafting, I treat the D/ST spot on my roster as a revolving door, and I’m specifically drafting for Week 1 or the first few weeks of the season.
As we work our way through the season, this article will serve as a place to identify streaming options. The only criterion is that the teams we discuss are rostered in less than 40% of leagues on Yahoo or ESPN.
Week 10 Recap
Our top pick from a week ago was Seattle. They largely did what we expected but only managed a D/ST18 finish. The Seahawks managed to get to Sam Howell three times and recovered a fumble but it wasn't enough for a big day. The Colts, on the other hand, were excellent. They finished as the D/ST2 with five sacks and two picks. Chicago, despite being rostered in less than 2% of ESPN leagues, was solid on Sunday, too. They managed three sacks and only allowed 13 points en route to their top-12 finish.
