At “Stream Pies,” we are serving up gooey loads of knowledge. Here, we’ll provide invaluable streaming advice on kickers and DEFs who are owned in less than 30-percent of Yahoo! leagues. We list the options in order of best option to “least-best” option (with the strongest recommendations starting at the top). We also include last week’s suggestions and full season results. Points are based on default Yahoo! settings.

These next two weeks are critical, but loyal “Stream Pies” readers know that the kid comes up big when needed most. Unless you are rocking the Chicago Bears defense, this is not the team to be showing loyalty to your DEF and kickers. You have to maximize the shit out of every position on your starting lineup. So grab the lube and a pack of rubbers, because we’re about to go in real deep with some ill recommendations.
