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 trusted in your boy and started the Miami Dolphins last week, you probably cruised to the fantasy playoffs as the ‘Fins scored 17 points for their fantasy owners. My kickers? Though not as awe-inspiring, they averaged a solid eight points between them (and were let down by a barely-used Jay Feely). 


If by some miracle you made it to the playoffs without taking my advice, note that there is still room on the Starbonell “Stream Pies” Bandwagon for you to bring your late ass along.

Team Defense (DEF) Recommendations

Week 14 Recommendations
1 – Oakland Raiders @NYJ

Oh yeah, we’re picking on Geno Smith again. Simply put, Smith doesn’t belong on an NFL field right now. Most backup QBs in the league would be a better starter for the Jets than Smith. Of course, I’m not complaining. Oakland’s up-and-down defense should have little trouble doing work against the Jets, thus keeping my hot streak alive.


2 – San Diego Chargers vs. NYG

This is coming from a Giants fan, so you know you can trust the following advice: Eli Manning and company will lay a David Diehl-sized egg in San Diego this week. New York’s wins this season have come against wack teams, and now they travel on the road to take on a Chargers team that needs every win they can get to stay in the AFC Wild Card race (they are currently one game out). San Diego has also played opposing QBs pretty well, generating a solid amount of pressure and notching an INT in six of their last seven games. Against New York’s porous offensive line, San Diego should wreak havoc on the Giants in Week 14.
