Fantasy Football Defense Streaming Week 17: Have Faith in Vegas

Fantasy Football Defense Streaming Week 17

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 16 Recap

The wheels fell off of the Colts D/ST in Week 16. They gave up 29 points to the hapless Falcons and only managed one sack. The Bears didn't fare much better when the dust settled on Week 16. They tallied two sacks and gave up only 16 points, but they didn't fill up the stat sheet like we had hoped. Neither team was able to get any turnover luck or find the end zone. Let's turn our attention towards Week 17 for your fantasy finals.
