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 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.


If you know anything about “Stream Pies,” then you know that regardless of what else happens, your boy Kid Clutch always comes through when it matters most. Over the last three weeks, my defensive picks have averaged a robust 12.17 points-per-recommendation. My kickers, although not as dominant, have posted a startable 8.78 averaged points-per-recommendation. With the final week of the regular season upon us, you can rest comfortably knowing that your fantasy playoff hopes rest in my strong, rugged hands.

Team Defense (DEF) Recommendations

Week 13 Recommendations
1 – Miami Dolphins @NYJ

The Dolphins have done a good job of getting pressure on the QB and have gone just one game without an interception… and now they get to face Geno “Big Apple Turnover” Smith. Football odds at show the Jets are actually a 1.5 point favorite, but that shouldn’t dissuade you from starting the ‘Fins. Yes, the quality Jets defense should keep this close at home, but they played very well against the Ravens last week and still lost by 16. In fact, you could argue that Geno was one of Baltimore’s MVPs as the rookie QB continually gave the Ravens great field position (via turnover or offensive incompetence). At this point, virtually every fantasy defense is worth considering starting against the Jets. In this particular case, Miami’s QB-schooling unit is a “must-start.”
