2021 Fantasy Football Week 13 Defense Stream-O-Matic

on

Welcome to the 2021 Fantasy Football Week 13 Defense Stream-O-Matic!

Below are the results from teams that were below 60% rostered on Yahoo when we published the Week 12 Stream-O-Matic. This is the real reason most of you are here anyway!

As we move forward, our results should continue to improve as data becomes more reliable and isn’t based on small sample sizes.

The Miami Dolphins defense has played really well over the last four weeks but they have not faced the toughest competition (Texans, Ravens, Jets, Panthers). They are dominating bad offenses and this week, that trend should continue against the New York Football Giants.

The only defense to score more Fantasy points over the last four weeks has been the New England Patriots, whose dominance stretches across six weeks now. The Buffalo Bills will be their first real test since the Los Angeles Chargers back in Week 8.

The Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers and Tennessee Titans are on bye weeks.

I am now using weighted DVOA in the scoring below.

I hope this experiment can be helpful when deciding between tough options. Good luck!

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.

  • Rost%: Roster percentage based on Yahoo Fantasy Football leagues. This gives us an idea of who is available. This doesn’t factor into the standings.
  • Location (Home): Generally speaking, defenses play better at home than on the road. A five-point bonus is given to all home teams.
  • Vegas (Opp Implied): Using Vegas odds, the spread and over/under generates an implied points total for each team. This game score portrays what the game flow could look like and, therefore, which Fantasy Football defenses are in a good position to succeed.
  • Pressure (Opp Prss%): Thanks to Pro Football Reference, we have access to advanced passing statistics. We are focused on pressure percentages allowed here which includes QB hurries, hits and sacks.
  • Weighted DVOA: Probably the most popular tool for evaluating defenses, the DVOA efficiency ratings are utilized to give a strong baseline to the rankings.
  • Proj: I used Yahoo Week 13 projections for this column. It is added as a bonus and not scored like roto for all the other columns.
