Home / Commentary / STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 14


1. Tampa Bay – Tampa Bay is coming off their bye this weekend and will be facing off against Minnesota. Minnesota has found its stride offensively in recent weeks, but doesn’t match up well with this Tampa Bay unit. Tampa Bay has a great run defense and will be able to limit Dalvin Cook. Kirk Cousins will be forced to throw more often, which opens a path to turnovers and sacks. Tampa Bay will be able to get pressure easily, making it a very high ceiling play.

2. Tennessee – Tennessee plays Jacksonville in an important game for their playoff push. Jacksonville has been a mess all season and has one of the worst offenses in the league. Look for head coach Mike Vrabel to come out with a great game plan to shutdown Jacksonville. Tennessee has a high floor as Jacksonville doesn’t score much. Turnovers are on the table as well, making Tennessee a solid stream.

3. Washington – Washington has quietly performed well defensively throughout this season. They have a ferocious front and a competent secondary. This week, Washington will be taking on San Francisco. San Francisco is still banged up on offensive, missing George Kittle and their starting quarterback. Washington will have no problems pressuring the passers, and they will rack up sacks. Turnovers should happen as well, making Washington a very high upside stream.

4. Carolina – Carolina doesn’t have a great defense, but it should be a serviceable streaming option this week. That’s because Carolina is playing Denver, whose offense has been incompetent most of the season. Quarterback play is their main problem, and that will not be resolved this week. Carolina may concede points, but could fall into some turnovers and sacks. Consider Carolina a high risk-high reward stream this Sunday.
