Streaming Defenses: Week 16

It's a special Tuesday, I've got two posts for you tonight. First up, Bob's take on defenses that you might want to roll with this week. 


Well it’s championship week, and if you’re reading this you’ve made it to the pinnacle, and I hope I’ve helped in some small way. At this point of the season you are probably locked into one of the top defenses and will ride them to the final outcome. But there may be some unlikely teams in the finals due to the disastrous week 15 for QBs. So some of you may not have the best matchup. First let’s look at week 14 stats:

The Ravens killed it and the Giants and Packers held their own. The Vikings were a disappointment however and the streamers only averaged 12.5 points. Normally a good week, since the overall average was only 10.8. But the highly owned teams kicked it in and averaged 13 points in a week that saw a lot of QBs stagger. The Bills and 49ers surprised as not recommended starts. But overall, the highly owned did well.   So what’s in store for this week?

3rd best stream, unlikely start but big upside against the most generous DEF pts giver

The highly owned teams look to do well again this week, but I don’t like the 49ers or Chiefs.

First best stream is one I recommended last week, and the Packers have an even juicier matchup this week.  Look for the Pack to rebound and do it on DEF. Expect 14 points with upside.

Second, once again, the Giants have a good matchup against a generous Rams team. In fact, both could do well, but the Giants will do better. Expect 12 points.

And for my final recommendation of the year, the Titans. The Titans??? Yep, they have nothing to play for except respect, and they have the ‘first round pick in the draft’ Jags. Don’t expect the Jags to give up that pick. They go out with a whimper and yield a ton of points to the Titans, to the tune of 12 points with upside.  

This will do it for my articles to the FFLibrarian for this season. Watch for more new exciting articles in the months to come from the FFLibrarian. We’re already strategizing new ways to help our readers even in the off season. 

And a fond thank you to Sara and the gang of 4 contributors this year, it’s been a real pleasure to work with you all and look forward to next year…

Thanks, enjoyed your defense series. Reading this along with comparing a few other sites, I had a successful season streaming defenses. Happy Holidays!

What about Carolina against Johnny Football and the amazing Brownies?

I'm surprised not to see Carolina top the list among the streaming defenses. Carolina has only allowed 527 passing yards total in the last 3 weeks which includes 2 fum recoveries, 2 INTs and 8 sacks.

Nice post. I like it. One-time All-Star DeMar DeRozan is set to return next week after missing a month and a half because of a groin injury. He couldn’t have chosen a better time with the Raptors playing all four games at home against the likes of Philadelphia and Detroit. If an owner is foolish and impatient enough to let DeRozan go, snag him up before it’s too late.

Back on the fantasy wagon

With my library conferences behind me (for a few weeks at least), I can now concentrate on fantasy football again. If you happen to be a librarian and are interested in how my co-presenter and I tied together fantasy football and information literacy, check out my co-presenter’s blog . Though I imagine most of you would much rather catch up on the following football news and thoughts for the week: I remain a bit dazed and confused by my certainty last summer that Cedric Benson was going to rock my RB2 world in 2007. Didn’t happen and now he’s moved onto ankle surgery, alleged intoxication and resisting arrest on boats. Awesome. You can practically taste Matt Forte’s value skyrocketing here. In fact, wondering about rookie RBs in general? Well then check out FF Xtreme’s The Day After: Ranking the Rookie Running Backs . I love reading articles or stats that challenge my preconceived notions – The Fifth Down’s Chad the Completion Percentage Machine does just that. No offense to thos

Streaming Defenses - Week 16

Don't know about you all, but in our house this week is just chock full of events, visiting with family, and getting organized for our upcoming time off over the holidays. Lots of scrambling going on around here and attempts to install some sense of gratitude in my boys. What am I grateful for this season? Many things but let's start with Bob. Bob has been my fantasy football rock, coming back week after week to post. Hats off to you, Bob, and thank you for your diligent work and research. So here he is with this year's final streaming defense post.  Well it’s the last week of the Fantasy Football Playoffs in most leagues, and my last post of the season. I hope you all found these posts useful. And if I failed you, you have to murder a lot more experts before you get to me. I myself have had a terrible playoff season. I’m out of all but one of my leagues due to the weird games the last two weeks. Between weather that didn’t materialize to normally consistent players co

A hiatus

Update:  It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you all that yesterday, August 30th, I delivered our stillborn daughter, Caroline Mary. This has been an almost surreal and definitely heartbreaking experience and I appreciate the support in each and every one of your notes. Caroline will be honored and loved always. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your thoughts and prayers - they mean the world to our family. I have been a very poor blogger this month and feel I owe you all an explanation, particularly as this is crunch time for draft prep. I hope this is not too personal of a look into my life since I know most of you are just here for the football. I am nearly 18 weeks pregnant and we have learned that our baby (a little girl!) has triploidy, a chromosomal abnormality that means she has three copies of every chromosome instead of the normal two. The doctors have explained that it's a completely random occurrence and fairly rare that she has made it this far along, but tha
