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.

Too busy with life, so here’s the express version of “Stream Pies.”

Team Defense (DEF) Recommendations
Week Five Recommendations
1 – Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. JAC
Tampa Bay’s defense has been no bueno this season, but they play the Jaguars this week; a team that has played them tight over their sordid history of matchups. There’s no doubt the pickings are slim this week in terms of cheap streaming options at defense, but I’m comfortable rolling with Tampa Bay.

Week Four Results (Points calculated with Yahoo! default settings)
San Diego Chargers: 27 points allowed, four sacks, fumble recovery = six points

Cincinnati Bengals: 21 points allowed, five sacks, fumble recovery = seven points
