Stream Pies: Week Eight

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.

Our recommendations weren’t up to snuff last week. They weren’t even up to soft-core porn. We promise better for Week Eight:

Team Defense (DEF) Recommendations
Week Eight Recommendations
1 – Cincinnati Bengals @PIT
Even if Ben Roethlisberger returns this week, Pittsburgh’s banged up offensive line should keep Cincinnati in prime stream-mode (the Bengals have racked up 11 sacks in the last three games).

Week Seven Results (Points calculated with Yahoo! default settings)
Washington Redskins: 24 points allowed, one sack, fumble recovery = three points
Pittsburgh Steelers: 23 points allowed, two sacks = two points

Season Totals
Average for top ranked DEF in Y! scoring: 17.17 points-per-game (Denver Broncos)

Average for “Stream Pies:” 5.33 points-per-recommendation
