With three weeks in the books, offenses are starting to round into shape, and some of the better defensive units are revealing themselves. For those in need of a defense/special team (D/ST) to stream for Week 4, here are three to consider adding that are still available in the majority of ESPN leagues. Also, check out the Awesemo projections to see what is projected for all of the teams that will be in action. Below are three of the top Week 4 streaming defense options according to the fantasy football rankings.
Week 4 Fantasy Football Streaming Defense Options
Tennessee Titans (92% available)
The Titans made this column last week because they had a favorable matchup against the Colts, who had a banged-up Carson Wentz at quarterback. They came through, holding Indianapolis to 16 points and posting two sacks. The Titans have still allowed an average of 28 points per game, though, which is probably why they are still available in this many leagues.
As far as good matchups go, it does not get any better than facing the Jets, which is what the Titans will do in Week 4. The Jets have been a disaster on offense, scoring a total of 20 points through three weeks. Zach Wilson has started off his career by throwing just two touchdown passes compared to seven interceptions. If in need of a defense to stream, the Titans might be the answer.
Green Bay Packers (84% available)
Like the Titans, the Packers have generally struggled to hold down the opposition through three games, allowing an average of 27.7 points. Oddly enough, they have allowed just 321.3 yards per game, which is top 10 in the league. That could mean better days are on the horizon, especially against weaker foes.
The Steelers are a bad offensive team, averaging just 16.7 points per game. Their offensive line has been abysmal and has contributed to Ben Roethlisberger being sacked eight times. Roethlisberger has not helped his own cause either, totaling three touchdown passes and three interceptions. His days as a viable starting quarterback in the league might be numbered, so do not be surprised if the Packers lock him down in Green Bay.
Cincinnati Bengals (95% available)
The Bengals put the clamps on the Steelers last week, holding them to just 10 points in Pittsburgh. They generated four sacks and two interceptions along the way, providing an excellent, all-around effort. They have been stingy in terms of points allowed so far, giving up 24 or fewer in all three games. They played an overtime game in Week 1, which makes the feat even more impressive.
Up next for the Bengals is a matchup against the Jaguars, who have only averaged 17.7 points per game. Trevor Lawrence may have a bright future, but he does not look comfortable yet, throwing seven interceptions through three games. While the Titans’ matchup against the Jets is the most appealing from a streaming standpoint for Week 4, a game against the Jaguars does not have the Bengals too far behind them.
