Top Fantasy Football Streaming Defenses for Week 10
Two of the top six scoring fantasy football defenses this season didn't even crack the top 15 in offseason average draft position (ADP) rankings.
Fantasy production for defenses is all about matchups and situation. That's why so many fantasy managers opt to lean heavily on the waiver wire and "stream" the position by readily adding and dropping defenses every week to find a new starter.
If you're one of those managers, The Duel is here to help with our top fantasy football streaming defenses for Week 10.
Streaming Defense Fantasy Football Week 10
3. Green Bay Packers (vs SEA)
With Russell Wilson likely returning, the inclusion of the Green Bay Packers on this list highlights that it's a pretty tough week for streaming defenses. The Russ-led Seahawks offense looked pretty dangerous early in the year, but Wilson did get sacked at least 2 times in each of his five starts, including 11 times in his four full games to start the year. The Packers have an above-average pass rush (No. 13 in Pro Football Focus' pass rush grade), and they should get some shots at Wilson. Another possibility is that the Seahawks call a very conservative game to ease Russ back into things, which would help the Packers' floor as it could limit Seattle's scoring.
2. Denver Broncos (vs PHI)
Checking in with one of the NFL's highest blitz rates (30.2%; 6th) and a top-10 sack rate (6.7%; 10th), the Denver Broncos offer plenty of fantasy upside in any given week. Jalen Hurts' rushing ability doesn't keep him out of danger entirely (2-plus sacks taken in six of his last eight games), and he could take a beating in this one.
1. Tennessee Titans (vs NO)
The Trevor Siemian-led New Orleans Saints offense didn't look too bad in Week 9. But they were also up against the Atlanta Falcons, who PFF has graded out as the leagues' fifth-worst defense. Things are going to look a lot different against the Tennessee Titans, who grade as the ninth-best. The Titans are 3-point home favorites in a game with a very low 44.5-point over/under. The Saints' 20.75-point implied total is one of the week's lowest, and this favorable spot for a good defense is the best you're going to find among defenses rostered in under 50% of leagues this week.
