The 2018 NFL season is nine weeks old and it’s time to start picking up streaming defenses from your fantasy football waiver wire, they are wrong. Unless you own a top-5 defense, you are better off finding the best option each week from your fantasy football waiver wire. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the team defense that is going to help you win your matchup.
Let’s get things started by taking a look at some fantasy football waiver wire team defenses that could help your team in Week 10.
San Francisco 49ers, D/ST
The 49ers’ defense absolutely manhandled the Oakland Raiders in Week 9, with eight sacks and three points allowed. They have posted double-digit fantasy points (Yahoo! scoring) in back-to-back games, against the Arizona Cardinals and the Raiders, and another struggling or outright feeble offense is on the slate for Week 10.
Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham have not been able to cover up the ineptitude around them, led by Eli Manning and an offensive line that can’t protect him (15 sacks allowed over the last three games, at least three sacks allowed in six of their last seven).
With some solid defenses idle, the 49ers are a high-floor, high upside streamer for Week 10. If Giants rookie quarterback Kyle Lauletta gets on the field next Monday night, that upside potential goes up automatically.
