Redskins Fans

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.

Alright, the Titans sucked, and brought our DEF average to 6.75 points-per-recommendation. On the kicker side, however, all three of our picks scored double-digit points. Right now our cheap kickers/DEFs are averaging 16.88, which I’ll take every week if it means more DFS dollars going towards offensive position players, which leads to more strip club dollars going towards your mom’s cooch.

On to this week’s picks:

Team Defense (DEF) Recommendations
Week Seven Recommendations
1 – Washington Redskins vs. TB
Running backs have killed the Redskins over the last two weeks, but considering they were facing Devonta Freeman and Chris Ivory, I’m willing to give them a pass. Doug Martin has looked great lately, but Tampa Bay should be a predictable offense to game plan against with Jameis Winston still learning (and leaning against) the ropes (the Bucs attempted just 19 passes last week). Washington has been generating turnovers lately (eight in the last three weeks) and is a good bet to produce at home in the thick of a tight division race.

2 – Pittsburgh Steelers @KC
They may be on the road, but Pittsburgh might be getting Ben Roethlisberger back and have a 4-2 record and a solid shot at a wild card spot. The Steelers have been mostly mediocre defensively this season, but a matchup against the hapless Chiefs offense is too attractive to ignore.
