2023 Fantasy Football Defense Stream-O-Matic

Welcome to the 2022 Fantasy Football Week 5 Defense Stream-O-Matic!

According to Yahoo Fantasy Football transaction trends, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Minnesota Vikings defenses were the top two adds after waivers cleared. The Jaguars return home after two road games to host the Houston Texans while the Vikings return from London to host the Chicago Bears.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Giants were the top two defenses dropped. The Steelers welcome Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills to Heinz Field, I mean Acrisure Stadium, while the Giants matchup with Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in London.

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%/Start%: Roster percentages 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 generate 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 Prs%): Thanks to Pro Football Reference, we have access to advanced passing statistics. I focused on pressure percentages allowed here which includes QB hurries, hits and sacks.
  • 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 5 projections for this column. It is added as a bonus and not scored like roto for all the other columns.

starting any defense against the Chicago Bears is a good idea!
