Streamable Defenses - Week 12

It was a good week for us on the streamable defenses front this week. How does that meme go? It’s not much, but it’s honest work? Or something like that. Well insert that in here now. The Jets were our top option this week against Dwayne Haskins and Washington. Nine points is an okay output there. The Oakland Raiders were our second option and were actually the highest scoring of our three choices from a week ago with 13 fantasy points against the Cincinnati Bengals. Even the worst of our three picks posted five points. In all, it was a good week for us.

We come out with this article every Tuesday on our website ( to offer you three defenses owned in less than 40% of Yahoo and/or ESPN leagues that are available for streaming. At least one of the options will be owned in less than 10% of leagues as well to cater to as many leagues and readers as possible. You can find last week’s results below and previous week’s results at the bottom of this article.

Week 11 Results

New York Jets at Washington - 9 points

Oakland Raiders vs. Cincinnati Bengals - 13 points

Washington vs. New York Jets - 5 points

Week 12 Streamable Defenses

Seattle Seahawks at Philadelphia Eagles - Owned in 34% of Yahoo and 28.2% of ESPN leagues

The Seattle Seahawks are one of the best five football teams in the league and they’re playing their best when the time matters. They’re coming off a bye and get the Philadelphia Eagles, who are a middle-of-the-pack defense in terms of points allowed to opposing defenses. However, in the last game we saw the Seattle defense, they posted five sacks, an interception and two forced fumbles including a touchdown against a very good San Francisco 49ers’ offense. Over the past four weeks the Eagles have scored 10, 31, 22 and 10 points. They’re not playing their best football and Seattle needs to keep pace with the 49ers.

Detroit Lions at Washington - Owned in 8% of Yahoo and 7.6% of ESPN leagues

This is one of those picks going off of Washington being a lot worse on offense than the Lions are on defense, which is kind of hard to go. Washington has given up the fifth most fantasy points to opposing defenses and just allowed the New York Jets to post nine fantasy points a week ago. The team named Dwayne Haskins its starter for the rest of the season a week ago and we’ll continue to see the regular rookie struggles out of him. He had a decent outing against the Jets, but did throw an interception, making it five in the four games he’s seen game time. We’ll keep picking defenses that play Washington on a weekly basis.

Denver Broncos at Buffalo Bills - Owned in 20% of Yahoo and 17.2% of ESPN leagues

I guess I’m going with a clean sweep of picking away teams this week. This pick is more of one going with an actual good defense opposed to a suspect defense with a good match-up. The Bills aren’t a horrible match-up as they’ve allowed the 13th most fantasy points to opposing defenses. They have one of the best secondaries in the league allowing the fourth least amount of fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. They’re also good against the run where they’re allowed the 12th least fantasy points to opposing running backs. I expect Josh Allen and company to struggle a bit on Sunday and we could see a few errored passes, even though Allen hasn’t thrown an interception in five weeks.
