Streaming Defenses: Week 11 Options
Streaming Defenses: Week 11 Options

This article is part of our Streaming Defenses series.

With 10 weeks of football in the books, it's time to take a look at the cumulative results for D/ST streaming picks. We discuss five options each and every week, choosing from defenses with ownership below 60 percent on Yahoo or 30 percent on ESPN.

The No. 1 choice has reached double-digit fantasy points under Yahoo standard scoring in eight of 10 weeks, with only the Colts in Week 4 falling shy of six points. The average of 13.6 fantasy points is better than any individual unit besides New England (19.7) and San Francisco (13.8).

Our No. 2 picks also have been impressive with an average of 9.6 points, including just one instance of fewer than six. No. 3 picks have been a tad better at an average of 9.8 points, albeit with three scores of four or fewer points (and four others in double digits).

No. 4  has been our weak spot, with a meager average of 3.9 points and just one double-digit performance. No. 5 choices have been disappointing to a lesser extent, averaging 6.8 points.

Note: These recommendations are limited to team defenses with ownership of less than 60 percent on Yahoo or 30 percent on ESPN as of Tuesday morning. Any references to fantasy points are based on Yahoo standard scoring, which doesn't include yards allowed.
