Streaming Defenses- Week 7

With week six officially over it’s time to take a look at the “team to stream” in week seven.

Analysis: This week we will take the Miami Dolphins coming off a bye week at home against the Buffalo Bills. Buffalo quarterback Thad Lewis was serviceable in week six at home against the Bengals but he did get banged up and playing on the road is a different animal altogether. Miami pass rusher Cameron Wake is expected to play this week which is always a plus for the eight point favorite Dolphins.

Miami is a middle of the road defensive team in most statistical categories. They have performed well from a fantasy perspective with the exception of the Monday night game in New Orleans. Before Miami’s bye this past week they held Joe Flacco to a 73.6 passer rating and also held Ray Rice to a 2.7 yards per carry average on 27 rushing attempts. As for the Buffalo offense- we don’t know much. Thad Lewis isn’t expected to light it up on the road and CJ Spiller has been a non-factor with the ankle injury.

The Dolphins D/ST is available in 80-90% of fantasy leagues.
