At “Stream Pies,” we are serving up gooey loads of knowledge. Here, we’ll provide invaluable streaming advice on kickers and DEF teams 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). Below our recommendations are last week’s and full season results. Points are based on default Yahoo! settings.

Both Andrew and Starbonell killed it in Week Two, proving that their penises are both long and girthy. Damn they’re good.

Want to see what they have in store for Week Four? Make the jump chump:

Kicker Recommendations (Provided by Andrew Holm, a.k.a. “Million Dollar $leeper”)
When choosing between leftover kickers I look for the following: team scoring potential, kicker skill and weather conditions. The ideal offense for our purposes would be a high octane pass-heavy offense that lacks a run game (especially close yardage). Anyone who streamed Jason Hanson with us should just hang onto him. Hanson is now owned in over 50% of Y! leagues so our new Stream Pies poster-kicker is Dan Bailey. Cowboy up.

Week Three Results (Points calculated with Yahoo! default settings)
Jason Hanson: 17 points
Jay Feely: 5 points
Shane Suisham: 13 points
Dan Bailey: 21 points
Average for top ranked K in Y! scoring: 13.33 points (Jason Hanson)
Average for “Stream Pies:” 12 points

Week Four Recommendations
Dan Bailey (DAL)- Weekly Rank: 7 (dome)
Lawrence Tynes (NYG)- Weekly Rank: 10
Ryan Longwell (MIN)– Weekly Rank: 11
Rian Lindell (BUF)- Weekly Rank: 12

Team Defenses or DEFs (Provided by Starbonell)
After a rough first week for your boy, Big Poppa Pockets stormed back in Week Three, scoring in double-digits for all his recommendations. Unfortunately, the brutal Week Two scores have made the overall average of my suggestions look weaker than it should. Oh well, guess I’ll just have to dominate from here on out to bring my score out.

Week Three streamers will follow a quick recap of last week’s recommendations.

Week Three Results (Points calculated with Yahoo! default settings)
Carolina Panthers: 10 points allowed, 2 sacks, safety, INT= 10 points
Seattle Seahawks: 10 points allowed, 3 sacks, 2 INTs = 11 points
Cincinnatti Bengals: 13 points allowed, 5 sacks, safety, fumble recovery = 13 points
Average for top ranked DEF in Y! scoring: 14.33 (SF and BAL)
Average for “Stream Pies:” 7.6 points

Week Three Recommendations
Tampa Bay vs. IND
The Bucs are at home against a Colts team that resorted to starting Curtis Painter last week and resigning Dan Orlovsky this week. Um, yeah, expect TB to be a top five DEF this week.

Washington @STL
Sam Bradford is getting manhandled behind that offensive line and the Redskins love to blitz and have play-makers who can transform turnovers into scores. Lot to love in this matchup.

Buffalo Bills @CIN
Two road teams nominated in “Stream Pies?” Believe that. Even though Buffalo burned me in Week Two against the Raiders, the Bengals should be a cakewalk for a team coming off a four pick performance against Tom Brady. Andy Dalton showed last week that he still has a long way to go in the NFL and with the way the Bills were able to pick up on Brady’s reads last week, Dalton should have a rough time finding a rhythm in this one.
