Week 10 Streaming Fantasy Football Defenses
3. Seattle Seahawks (@ TB)
The Seattle Seahawks' defense has been on a roll lately heading into this weekend's matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Munich. The Seahawks have allowed just 16.5 points per game over their last four contests while racking up 19 sacks during that stretch. They've also been opportunistic with 5 fumble recoveries and a pair of interceptions while earning 9 fourth-down stops during this period as well. This unit has completely turned things around after an ugly start and should stay hot against a sputtering Buccaneers offense that ranks 25th in points per game.
2. Las Vegas Raiders (vs IND)
The Las Vegas Raiders' defense hasn't been good, but the Indianapolis Colts' offense has been really bad. Sam Ehlinger has struggled mightily since taking over for Matt Ryan, managing just 304 total passing yards with no touchdowns and 2 turnovers in two games so far. The Colts have tallied just 19 points combined with Ehlinger under center, allowing him to get sacked 11 times with their poor offensive line. Indy now ranks dead last in scoring at 14.7 points per game and may be without Jonathan Taylor again. And now with a new head coach and first-time play-caller, there's still room for things to get even uglier for the Colts.
1. New York Giants (vs HOU)
The New York Giants are in a great spot at home this week coming off a bye. The lowly Houston Texans come to town with the worst record in the NFL at 1-6-1, largely due to their dreadful offense. Houston ranks 28th in points per game and 29th in yards per game despite Dameon Pierce's success on the ground. Meanwhile, New York is giving up the ninth-fewest points per game (19.6) and is coming off a string of strong performances. The Giants have registered multiple sacks and forced at least 1 turnover in four of their last five games, setting them up for another strong outing this weekend.
