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 (with 0.5 points-per-reception).


Another week, another TD scoring defense recommended by yours truly. Our defenses are now averaging 11.5 points-per-recommendation through two weeks (and, might I add, the hardest two weeks to pick). Our kickers can and will be better (right now we are averaging seven per), and that should start this week with some interesting and overlooked matchups in Week Three.

Team Defense (DEF) Recommendations

Week Three Recommendations
1 – Buffalo Bills @NYJ

New Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine who spent the previous four years as Rex Ryan’s DC in New York. In other words, he’s very familiar with the Jets’ personnel and the way they do things. Granted, the Jets have a new OC in town, but that shouldn’t prevent Pettine and his Bills offense from generating ample pressure on rookie QB Geno Smith. FYI, Mario Williams racked up 4.5 sacks last week against a similarly-talented, but more seasoned QB (Cam Newton).
