Two of last week's four top-scoring fantasy football defenses were available in over 50% of Yahoo! fantasy football leagues, and one of those two was featured in our Week 13 streaming defense column.
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 14.

3. Los Angeles Chargers (vs NYG)
With Daniel Jones out, it's lookin an awful lot like Jake Fromm will be starting for the New York Giants this week. We haven't seen what Fromm can do at the NFL level yet, but considering he was a fifth-round pick in 2020 and has yet to play an NFL snap, it's not likely going to be pretty. The Los Angeles Chargers won't make things easy on him, either, as they own the NFL's sixth-highest pressure rate (27.6%) and are tied for the 11th-highest takeaway rate (12.8%).
2. Denver Broncos (vs DET)
The Denver Broncos' defense is coming off a down week, but that is to be expected against the Kansas City Chiefs. They had scored 13-plus fantasy points in two of their previous four games (against the Washington Football Team and Los Angeles Chargers), and a matchup with the Detroit Lions puts them in the perfect bounce-back spot. The Lions may finally be in the win column, but they've still allowed the NFL's ninth-most fantasy points per game to opposing defenses.
1. Green Bay Packers (vs CHI)
One of the few teams giving up more fantasy production to defenses than the Lions is the Chicago Bears, who are allowing the sixth-most fantasy points per game. Whether it's Justin Fields (second-highest interception rate among qualifying QBs at 4.0%) or Andy Dalton (4 interceptions and 3 sacks in his last start), this is a team you want to target in fantasy. This isn't just about the matchup, either, as the Green Bay Packers' defense has scored 15-plus fantasy points in two of its last three games, with 10-plus in four of the last six.
