Streaming Defenses: Week 2 Options
Streaming Defenses: Week 2 Options

This article is part of our Streaming Defenses series.

Week 1 was an oddity in the fantasy football universe, featuring a large number of high scores from both the QB and D/ST positions. Half of the league's 32 defenses reached double digits in Yahoo standard scoring, and only a handful failed to put up five or more points.

My five Week 1 streaming recommendations each landed between five and 12 fantasy points — this would typically be a strong showing, but it's only mediocre in the context of Week 1. It's now time to adjust based on what we saw last week, though preseason expectations shouldn't just be chucked out the window due to a one-game sample.

Note: These recommendations are limited to D/ST units with under 60 percent ownership on Yahoo as of Tuesday morning. Any references to fantasy points are based on Yahoo standard scoring.
