Week Ten Defense Streamers for Fantasy Football: The Cat’s Out Of The Bag

If you read my article on playing the waiver wire game, you know that it is an essential part of winning your fantasy football league.  If you haven’t read it, what are you waiting for?  I just told you it’s an essential part of winning your fantasy football league!  Why do you hate winning? One of the best ways to maximize your weekly scoring is to stream defenses.  This strategy is simple – we aren’t as concerned about good defenses, so much as finding defenses that are playing terrible offenses.  Bad offenses are more likely to keep playing bad because if they knew how to be good, they would already be good.  Because of this flawless logic, I will be helping you pick the best week ten defense for you to stream for victory.

All season, I have been spouting one rule when it comes to streaming fantasy defenses: always start the defense playing the team that is trying to lose all of its games (i.e. the Dolphins of Miami).  But sometimes, a hero emerges.  One who looks at the team trying its very best to fail and that champion says, “My name is Adam Gase and I don’t need to work hard to be terrible at everything I do.”  And this paragon of tragedy’s team loses.  He laughs in the face of competency.  What I’m saying is if you can lose to the Dolphins, you can lose to anyone. Even the New York Giants.  This wasn’t a one-week aberration either.  Over the last few weeks, the New York Jets have surpassed the Miami Dolphins as the team giving up the most fantasy points to opposing defenses.  You need to start the New York Giants as your week ten defense, if available.

Last week, I told you to start the Jets against the Dolphins.  It was a great choice, so long as you didn’t actually have to watch the game.  Because there was no defending your sanity against that horror show of a performance.  This week, the Jets are playing a Giants team that has given up the third-most fantasy points to opposing defenses.  The only thing better than starting the Jets this week is starting the team playing the Jets!  (See above).

I’m not gonna lie to you, I’m only putting this here because I usually give you three defenses to stream.  However, there are two perfectly good (bad) New York defenses that I have already mentioned that are almost assuredly available, because who in their right mind is stashing the Giants and the Jets?  However, on the off-chance that you live in New York with delusional alcoholics who have been stashing those teams, I will offer you a Green Bay Packers defense that just got embarrassed at home.  Kyle Allen is exactly the type of quarterback a Mike Pettine defense would destroy.  The Packers are a great-upside play in week ten.
