Streaming Defenses: Rest of Season Roadmap
With the fantasy playoffs right around the corner and the height of bye week season already upon us, there is no better time to map out which defenses you will use in the weeks ahead. The mad scramble taking place on waiver wires across fantasy land is a form of forced streaming and has taken place, unbeknownst to most, for far longer than ‘streaming’ became a thing.
Of course by now everyone knows what streaming is. It’s 2013. We’re not animals.
To help you get a leg up on your more active league mates, we have come up with a defensive road map for the remainder of the season. The chart below (click to enlarge) will help guide you through the turbulent weeks ahead and, if used correctly, keep you one step ahead of that guy in last place who keeps out-waivering you for top streaming choices.
