The Week 15 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 vs. Detroit Lions (49% owned)
The Lions offense is in a bad way and now they have to travel on the road to a potentially cold and windy Buffalo. This is a terrible spot for that offense and the Bills defense has a real chance to roll on in this game. I think there is a good chance the Bills have multiple sacks and a couple of turnovers in this game.
New Orleans Saints @ Carolina Panthers (54%)
This is me buying into the Saint defense in a big way. The Panthers offense are able to do things but the pressure the Saints offense will exert could lead to Cam Newton making mistakes. Newton does not look healthy and is just two weeks further on from a four turnover game against the Buccaneers. This game being in Carolina will help but I still think the Saints defense can have a big day against a wounded Panthers team.
New York Giants vs. Tennessee Titans (26%)
The Titans offense had a mini explosion against the Jaguars which will make people question this. However, the fact they were able to do what they did is partly due to the load the Jaguars defense is shouldering playing with that offense. When your offense cannot do anything it puts a lot of pressure on a defense and eventually they will break. The Giants offense is not brilliant but it better than the Jaguars and that will help the Giants defense. We have also seen this Tennessee offense lay some big eggs the week after a good performance and on the road in New York I think that could happen again. It is a risky play in the fantasy playoffs but the brave players are the ones who win championships.
