Even Tim Tebow looks down on Brady Quinn’s QB skillsPhoto Credit: Jeffrey Beall At “Stream Pies,” we are serving up gooey loads of knowledge. Here, we’ll provide invaluable streaming advice on kickers and DEFs who are owned in less than 30-percent of Yahoo! leagues. We list the options in order of best option to “least-best” option (with the strongest recommendations starting at the top). We also include last week’s suggestions and full season results. Points are based on default Yahoo! settings.Alright, the Browns sucked last week. To be fair, there was slim pickings on the waiver wire with defenses last week, and at least their two turnovers kept them from negative points. The good news is that I’m great, and I have three DEFs on tap to help put our points-per-recommendation on the right track.The kickers? Business as usual. Still averaging double-digit points per recommendation. Still making it unnecessary to hold onto Mason “Shank” Crosby.More after the jump: Team Defense (DEF) RecommendationsWeek Six Recommendations1 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. KCWhen a defense faces Brady Quinn, you start that defense. Jamaal Charles has been fantastic the last two weeks, but Tampa has given up just 3.54 YPC this season.2 - Miami Dolphins vs. STLThe Dolphins have done a solid job of getting pressure on opposing QBs and the Rams will be without their best WR this week. Even if St. Louis leans on the run, the Dolphins are allowing a scant 2.62 YPC and have held Arian Foster an Darren McFadden in check.3 - Cleveland Browns vs. CINThat’s right, we are going back to the well with Cleveland. The reason? They are getting Joe Haden back, and the shutdown corner should minimize the effect of A.J. Green. Though the Browns were lit up last week by the explosive Giants, I’m expecting Cleveland to do a nice job of controlling the time-of-possession with Trent Richardson.Week Five Results (Points calculated with Yahoo! default settings)Cleveland Browns: 41 points allowed, INT, fumble recovery = 0 pointsAverage for top ranked DEF in Y! scoring: 19.6 points-per-game (CHI)Average for “Stream Pies:” 6.6 points-per-recommendationKicker RecommendationsWeek Six Recommendations1 - Shayne Graham vs. GBThis game will either be a points-bonanza, or a carefully executed defensive effort on both sides. Either way, Graham will be scoring points.2 - Phil Dawson vs. CINAlways reliable, Dawson should be involved in this close tilt against a Bengals defense that is solid enough to keep Cleveland from scoring at will, but not good enough from keeping the Browns out of field goal range.Week Five Results (Points calculated with Yahoo! default settings)Nick Novak: six pointsSteve Hauschka: 11 pointsShayne Graham: 12 pointsAverage for top ranked K in Y! scoring: 14 points-per-game (Jason Hanson)Average for “Stream Pies:” 10.08 points-per-recommendation
