Week eight is in the books and now it’s time to take a look at the “team to stream” in week nine.
Analysis: This week we will take the Oakland defense at home against the Philadelphia Eagles. Nick Foles should get the start for the Eagles and he is still a big question mark. Foles struggled in his last start against the Cowboys. He was 11 for 29 passing and was sacked 3 times before leaving with the concussion. Despite Philly ranked 5th in the NFL in yards per game the Eagles are just 18th in points per game(22.0/game).
The Oakland defense has been a top ten fantasy defense in its last four games(PIT,KC,SD,WSH). The Raiders are 10th in the NFL in yards allowed per game, 12th in points per game against, 15th in sacks and 9th in fumble recoveries. The Raiders D/ST is available in 85-95% of fantasy leagues.
The Titans defense is another one to check out, they are at St. Louis in week nine. The Rams are 30th in yards per game and 23rd in points per game this year. The Rams also have a short week while the Titans have been resting on their bye. The Titans D/ST is available in 65-80% of fantasy leagues.
