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.

Team Defense (DEF) Recommendations

Week Seven Recommendations
1 – Miami Dolphins vs. BUF

The Dolphins desperately needed their Week Six bye in order for their banged-up defense to heal up. Remember, they earned nine sacks in the first two games of the season before injuries wreaked havoc on their squad. On top of that, they’ve had two weeks to prepare for a Bills team that is dealing with a litany of offensive injuries. The Dolphins are trying to make serious noise this year, and this should be a huge game for them at home.


2 – Atlanta Falcons vs. TB

This is a bit of a gamble, but with the Falcons coming off a Week Six bye and desperate for some wins, I’m expecting them to play a lot better at home this week. Plus, they are facing an offense that has been fantasy gold to opposing defenses, so here’s hoping the Bucs can gift-wrap some points to a Falcons team that is desperate to get back on track.
