Streaming Defenses - Week 12



Friends, I've been way behind in my posting. If I can get my act together and post some start/sit links over the holiday weekend, I certainly will. Remember you can always scope out Fantasy Rundown for links as needed! Happy Thanksgiving all!
Streaming into the playoffs. I hope your streaming has helped you out so far. Lately the streamers have been a big help, and last week is testimony. The Giants and Dolphins are up as defenses. And can you believe that the Saints came through as predicted? I warned you about Philly, but didn’t see the Chiefs laying an egg. Overall there was only one highly owned that outperformed two of our streams.

No byes this week, so we have a bunch of options. Although be careful on a few of the highly owned. I only like four of them this week, with better options at streaming Defs after that. BAL should be more highly owned, and I blame the bye week for having the Chargers still available, but now’s your chance. All but one of our favorite targets are playing streamers this week, so take advantage. Also, I’m giving you six stream options this week, with a couple having some good upside. So you may want to roll the dice this week if they’re available.

Seahawks are surging and TB is a borderline target, start the Seahawks with confidence. Good upside.
KCC

Broncos are giving up an avg of 11 pts/game over the last 7 games. That puts them in the target range, and KCC is getting better and better. Great start even on the road.

Cards Def has dropped off as of late, and ATL is 5th stingiest giving up Def pts. I don't like this start, expect low returns if you start.

You gotta start the Broncos, but temper expectations against a stingy KC team.

DET loves Thanksgiving, but MIN showed their Def was back last week. Look for slightly lower expectations due to Turkey Day, but still start.

Good defense against the top target, this is a must start.

What's going on in GB. Packers are giving up an avg of 10 pts/game over last six against so-so Defs. Expect a good day for PHI at home.

Saints are giving over 10 pts/game to top ten Defs. RAMS are 13th ranked DEF, start 'em but temper since they're on the road.

The Browns are collapsing into great target oblivion, just as the Giants have found their pass rush. Best stream of the week.
BAL

CIN will give up points to good defs and the Ravens are really tough. With A.J. and Gio out, this gets even better for the Ravens at home. 2nd best stream.
BUF

BUF Def has faltered as of late, but the Jags are still a good target. Bills at home, maybe in snow, I like this as the 3rd best stream.

Well, I picked the Saints last week and they came through, let's give them another shot at the 2nd best target, 4th best stream.

Dolphins are now 11th best Def and SF is still a great target, expect good returns as the 5th best stream with upside

HOU is now a borderline target and the Chargers keep improving on Def, I like the Chargers as the 6th best stream, with some upside.

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
