Here are your Week 10 Fantasy Football Team Defenses to Start.
STREAM ALERT: New York Giants at New York Jets
With two teams in rebuild mode there’s no telling what the outcome of this game will be, but in watching the Giants this past Monday night felt that if they could hang with the Cowboys for three quarters, then they could be in control against the Jets. It’s definitely a risky play, considering the Giants have been all over the place as far as defensive efforts go, but they had a recent three game stretch from Weeks 6-8, including the Patriots, where they averaged 10.0 fantasy points.
Plus, the Jets give up the most fantasy points to opposing defenses, since they have scored over 16 points once this season and in single-digits five times. It’s a bit of Hail Mary for owners needing to stream but everything is there to capitalize for those starving for a replacement defense.
