2020 Fantasy Football Week 6 Defense Stream-O-Matic

on

The 2020 Fantasy Football Week 6 Defense Stream-O-Matic is only the second edition during this NFL season.

As you well know, defenses are fickle, let’s see how we fared last week!

Hey, as long as that chart has a positive slope, I’m happy!

On to the chart! (Those ownership percentages are from earlier in the week. Sorry everyone, busy week at the ol’ office!)

Scoring

I use a traditional rotisserie scoring style commonly used in fantasy baseball season-long leagues to give point totals to each team.

Categories

The categories for the chart are listed below along with links to websites that I use to find this data.

  • Own%: Ownership percentages based on 12-team ESPN leagues gives us an idea of who is available. This doesn’t factor into the standings.
  • Location: Generally speaking, defenses play better at home than on the road. Thus, a five-point advantage is given to all home teams.
  • Wind: The only weather element that has shown a direct correlation with point totals is winds in excess of 15 MPH. Another five-point bonus is awarded to teams playing in such windy conditions.
  • Vegas: Using Vegas odds, the spread and over/under generates a projected game score that the bettors go against. This game score portrays what the game flow could look like and, therefore, which fantasy football defenses are in a good position to succeed.
  • oSAC%: To gauge how good (or bad) an opposing offensive line might be, look at the sack percentage for that team’s offense. Not only are some offensive lines bad, but some quarterbacks don’t show the ability to avoid the sack.
  • oINT%: The opponent’s interception percentage obviously helps in streaming a defense. Turnover percentage is not used here because fumbles can be a little fluky and turnover percentage uses both fumbles and interceptions.
  • FPPG: I use ESPN defensive scoring rankings to determine a ranking of the fantasy football defenses.
  • DVOA: Probably the most popular tool for evaluating defenses, the DVOA efficiency ratings are utilized to give a strong baseline to the rankings.

Early Week 7 Stream-O-Matic Rankings

I will produce early weekly rankings where I approximate the Vegas odds (proceed with caution). This may help you pick between multiple defenses if one of the defenses also has a good matchup the following week. I’ll include as many defenses as I think are necessary, which will fluctuate week by week.

  1. Chiefs (at DEN) – 125
  2. Rams (vs. CHI) – 124
  3. Patriots (vs. SF) – 116
  4. Eagles (vs. NYG) – 108
  5. Giants (at PHI) – 108
  6. 49ers (at NE) – 102
  7. Chargers (vs. JAX) – 100
  8. Packers (at HOU) – 98
  9. Cardinals (at SEA) – 93
  10. Bears (at LAR) – 92
  11. Browns (at CIN) – 88
  12. Saints (vs. CAR) – 83
  13. Buccaneers (at LV) – 82

Teams with Stream-O-Matic scores in the upper quartile of the league for Week 6 and Week 7 include the Giants, Patriots, and Rams.
