Week 10 Defense Rankings

The Week 10 defense rankings are here help you make tough decisions about who to stream this week. Defense streaming is now widely seen as the best way to utilize the DST spot on your roster. It certainly is not the only way to do it. However, it is perhaps the best way to consistently get a top-10 DST on your roster each week. The other option often involves spending a single-digit round pick on a defense. That is not something I am not willing to do outside of extremely deep leagues.

For this article I would look to pick defense streamers that are under 70% owned.

Our team will be here the rest of the year ranking the offensive positions, defensive positions, and team defense to try and help you win your fantasy football leagues.

Buffalo Bills @ New York Jets (17%)

Whether Sam Darnold or Josh McCown is under center I like the Bills defense this week. They are a better play with Darnold under center as the rookie is more likely to struggle against this defense. The Bills have been reasonably impressive the last couple of games, including keeping Tom Brady under wraps. The scoreline got ugly last week but that was not on the defense. The offense was a mess and special teams were an issue but the defense did fairly well given the situation. The Jets offensive line is not great and the Bills should be able to put pressure on whoever is at quarterback and force mistakes.

San Francisco 49ers vs. New York Giants (24%)

The 49ers defense is not great but the Giants offense is worse. The offensive line is just plain bad and the offense lacks invention. You may not feel good about it but with a few good defenses on bye this week you need to get inventive.

New York Giants @ San Francisco 49ers (3%)

The 49ers offense was made to look good against the Raiders. Nick Mullens will be in his second game and the 49ers offense has been shut down by decent defenses. This Giants defense managed to shut down the Falcons high flying offense in Atlanta so they should be able to keep the 49ers offense quiet. With Olivier Vernon up to speed they should be able to get pressure on the young quarterback and that will give them the opportunity to force turnovers.
