The Niners shut down Russell Wilson and sacked him four times. Coming off a loss, expect a huge performance at home.
They shut down Cam Newton. They shut down Colin Kaepernick. What do you think they're going to do to Chad Henne or Blaine Gabbert. This is going to be a laugher.
Cincinnati rebounded from a ho-hum Week 1 performance to register two sacks, two takeaways and 10 points allowed against the Steelers. You'll want to start this defense every week if it's on your roster.
The Bills played a great game defensively last week, sacking Cam Newton six times, intercepting him once and limiting him to 6.0 yards per attempt. They're a great stream option this week.
The Broncos picked off Eli Manning four times last week and are a great option against an Oakland team that will be completely outclassed.
The Titans defense might be back. It held the mighty Texans to 16 points through 58 minutes, picked off Matt Schaub twice and limited him to 6.2 yards per attempt.
After impressive performances against the Falcons and Buccaneers, the Saints defense may just be a whole lot better than expected.
The Browns had another very impressive showing, holding the Ravens to 14 points and allowing Joe Flacco just 6.4 yards per attempt. They're a great play against the Vikings.
Dominating the Jaguars was one thing, but holding the Cowboys to 16 points and completley shutting down their run game was another thing entirely. This is a sneaky-good defense.
Another week, another terrible performance from this defense. Stay far, far away.
After forcing six turnovers Week 1, Dallas sacked Alex Smith four times last week. This looks like the type of defense owners may be able to count on week after week.
Carolina has struggled against the pass this year, and that could spell big things for Eli Manning and the Giants this week.
The Vikings allowed 24 offensive points to the Bears and gave up another huge game to a running back, this time to Matt Forte. Against Cleveland, however, the Vikings are a decent stream option.
Three takeaways and a touchdown. Just another day at the office for the Bears defense. The lack of a pass rush is a bit worrisome, but you can start Chicago with confidence this week.
Philip Rivers burned the Eagles last week, and though Alex Smith may not bring the same sort of firepower, you can likely find a better option.
Baltimore bounced back last week, albeit against an anemic Cleveland offense. Use the D as you normally would this week.
The Rams defense showed why last week it's nothing more than a matchup play. Avoid it against the Cowboys.
The Dolphins defense has looked great this year, but it gets its stiffest test to date in the Falcons. Atlanta's offensive line has been shaky, and I think the Dolphins can get to Matt Ryan.
The Chargers defense has been in the bottom-fourth of the league according to Pro Football Focus' metrics. The Titans won't be enough to cure what ails them.
The Patriots got three picks and four sacks against the Jets, but that had as much to do with the latter as it did with the former.
In what seemed like a cushy matchup with the Titans, the Texans didn't force any turnovers and gave up 24 points. I'd still run them out there against Baltimore.
Outside of a fluky pick-six by Osi Umenyiora, Atlanta's defense didn't do a thing against St. Louis last week. It isn't a fantasy option.
The Steelers didn't do a thing against the Bengals, and they looked old in doing nothing. This is a team that is about to bottom out.
It was easy to write off a strong performance against the Jets, but after the Bucs held the Saints to 16 points and limited Drew Brees to 7.0 yards per attempt, it's time to take notice of this defense.
The Packers defense played a whole lot better last week than the final stats suggest. With a huge lead in hand, they allowed Robert Griffin III to pick away at them in the second half.
The Jets allowed just 13 points to the Patriots, but I'd attribute that to the Patriots shaky offense as much as to the Jets. You should be able to find a better option this week.
The Cardinals shut out the mighty Lions in the second half last week, though a lot of that had to do with Reggie Bush's injury. You definitely do not want to go up against the Saints.
Detroit's defensive line gets a ton of attention, but this defense as a whole quite simply isn't very good.
There is absolutely nothing to like about this team, defense included.
Oh boy. This is going to be ugly. This isn't Jacksonville, or even Indy, for that matter.
The Giants have struggled against the pass this year, and now they visit an underachieving Cam Newton and the Panthers. I don't like their chances.
There are a lot of problems on this defense that are already showing, and it has only faced the Raiders and Dolphins.
