2021 Fantasy Football Week 17 Defense Stream-O-Matic

by Keith Lott

Welcome to the 2021 Fantasy Football Week 16 Defense Stream-O-Matic!

Below are the results from teams that were below 60% rostered on Yahoo when we published the Week 16 Stream-O-Matic. This is the real reason most of you are here anyway!

If you are reading this, you are playing in the Fantasy Football Championship with a shot at your league's jackpot - good luck! I hope that I have been able to help get you to this point by streaming the right defense week after week.

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 17 projections for this column. It is added as a bonus and not scored like roto for all the other columns.
