In My Defense: Week #2 D/ST Streamers
D/ST Streamers – Week #2
Here are my top D/ST steaming options for week #2. Good luck y’all.
Seattle Seahawks – This week the Seahawks host the Tennessee Titans, a team coming off a rough offensive performance last week against Arizona. The Titans were tied for the most sacks given up in Week 1 with 6 and had 3 turnovers. They ranked dead last in yards per play and second worst in yards per game. While I don’t expect the Titans to be as bad in Week 2, they seem like a decent offense to target for DSTs early on. Not only does the matchup seem nice, but the Seahawks defense also had a strong game themselves forcing 1 turnover, 3 sacks and holding the Colts to only 16 points. The Over/Under on the game is a tad on the high side, but Seattle is a 5.5-point home favorite which should bode well for the defense.
Arizona Cardinals – As we just mentioned the horrific output from the Titans, the Arizona Cardinals were the team on the other side of the ball last week. Chandler Jones was a one-man wrecking crew, sacking the QB five times himself as the Arizona defense completely dominated. This week Arizona takes on Minnesota at home, a team that just gave up 3 sacks and a turnover to the Bengals. I don’t think anyone would argue the Bengals have a top-tier defense, so I expect Jones and company to wreak havoc one more week. The Vikings entered the season with the 27th ranked offensive line according to PFF, while the Cardinals sport the 12th best defensive line unit. This should be another positive matchup for the front of Arizona, and we should expect them to get to Cousins at least a few times this game. This game also has a bit higher of an Over/Under at 51, but a 3.5-point home favorite for Arizona is a good sign for the defense.
Cleveland Browns – Coming into the season the Browns’ defense was a favorite of many, but there’s good odds they remained on the waiver wire for Week 1 given their matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs. If you were lucky enough to scoop them up this week, or they’re still out there on the wire, they get the Houston Texans this week as 12.5-point home favorites, in a game with one of the lower Over/Under’s on the week. That type of spread should greatly favor the Browns’ defense in several ways. A big lead should force the Texans to throw the ball often, allowing for more sack and turnover opportunities, while the Browns’ dynamic running game should also help control the clock and limit the offensive opportunities for Houston. PFF graded the Texans’ line as the 20th unit entering the season, and I expect Myles Garrett, Jadaveon Clowney and the Cleveland defense to disrupt Tyrod Taylor all game long. Houston has one of the lowest implied team totals this week at 18 points, so I highly doubt we see a repeat offensive performance from Houston like last week.
