Last week’s top streaming option in the Chargers worked out pretty well for you if you followed my advice as they returned you the DST7 of Week 11 with nine fantasy points. It was looking like being so much better after a first quarter interception returned for a touchdown, the Chargers went onto build a comfortable lead and allowed the Jets to put up yards and points without ever letting them back in the game.

The top fantasy defense of Week 11 went to the Browns, who put up fantasy points all over, with five sacks, three turnovers (including a pick-s6), and a safety to give you 20 points and a match up changing score from the DST spot. There were other top fantasy defensive performances in Week 11, with five other teams getting you double digit points. The Panthers shut out a Lions team missing most of it’s offensive weapons and scored 17 fantasy points, with the Steelers (17 points), Saints (16 points), Broncos (12 points) and Washington (12 points) all making serious contributions to your weekly totals if you rostered them.

Week 12 Top Streaming Option: New York Giants @ Cincinnati Bengals (20% owned)

Time to pile on the misery being felt in Cincinnati with the Joe Burrow injury and let’s get on the Giants this week. Fresh off a bye and facing a Brandon Allen led offense, it’s arrows up for the Giants this week. As the DST11 on the season, the Giants are criminally under-owned in just 20% of teams at the moment, so make them a priority on your waiver wire this week and reap the benefits on Sunday.
