Stream Pies: Week 14

Sorry ladies, he’s spoken for… Photo Credit: America’s Power

At “Stream Pies,” we are serving up gooey loads of knowledge. Here, we’ll provide invaluable streaming advice on kickers and DEFs who are owned in less than 30-percent of Yahoo! leagues. We list the options in order of best to “least-best” option (with the strongest recommendations starting at the top). We also include last week’s suggestions and full season results. Points are based on default Yahoo! settings. These recommendations also work for those of you who play in daily/weekly leagues on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings as they are cheap options that allow you to spend more money on the premium positions instead.

Team Defense (DEF) Recommendations
Week 14 Recommendations
1 – New York Giants @MIA
The G-Men came through for us last week thanks to a special teams score, and they draw a favorable matchup against the Dolphins on Monday night at home. Despite some recent struggles, New York is still in the thick of a division title race and their defense will (hopefully) be plenty motivated after their coach threw them under the bus this week.

2 – Washington Redskins @CHI
Washington has been an effective fantasy team over the last four weeks, racking up eight sacks, two TDs, and eight turnovers. Sure Jay Cutler is throwing fewer picks these days, but I’m banking on the Redskins continuing their roll (at least on the defensive side of the ball).

Week 13 Results (Points calculated with Yahoo! default settings)
Chicago Bears: 20 points allowed, four sacks, blocked kick = seven points
NY Giants: 23 points allowed, three sacks, fumble recovery, TD = 11 points
Tennessee Titans: 39 points allowed, two sacks, fumble recovery, TD = six points
