2019 Fantasy Football Rankings: Defenses for Week 16

Your final Top 20 Fantasy Defenses for 2019

Championship week is here and if you’re been skilful (or frankly lucky) enough to make it this far, nailing your lineup this week can give you bragging rights for the best part of the next 12 months.

If you followed my advice on my top streaming option for last week, you were money as the Bucs (17 points) finished as the D/ST 4 for Week 15. However, they were not a patch on the rampant Vikings, who put up 26 points as they turned the Chargers over SEVEN times, including returning a fumble for a touchdown in a 39-10 victory.

So who this week is going to be the defense that helps you to fantasy immortality? If you don’t have any of the top owned fantasy defenses, my top streaming option for Week 16 is the Broncos. At just 18% owned, they face the Lions who have given up 14 and 17 fantasy points to opposing defenses in the last 2 weeks with David Blough at quarterback.

Other good match options you should find on your waiver wire for this week are the Chiefs (34% owned) at the Bears, the Jets (30% owned) vs the Steelers, the Bucs (28% owned) vs the Texans and even the Falcons, who at just 6% owned face a Jaguars offense who have not scored more than 20 points in any of the last 6 weeks.

Best of luck this week.
