The Chiefs turned in the most impressive defensive performance of the season to date in Week 3, shutting down the previously unstoppable Michael Vick. They look like a D you'll want to start regardless of matchup.
Dallas has been one of the best defenses in the league this year, notching 13 sacks and seven takeaways through three games. I think it's in for another big game this week.
Cincinnati surrendered 30 points to the Packers, but limited Aaron Rodgers to 5.7 YPA and made enough plays to have a big fantasy day. That will continue in Cleveland.
After seeing what the Ravens did to Matt Schaub and the Houston run game last week, I'm quite bullish on the Seahawks.
After struggling against the Raiders and Dolphins, the Colts absolutely shut down Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers last week. They're a great stream option this week.
Heading to Tampa to face the reeling Buccaneers, the Cardinals are worth streaming this week.
Pittsburgh's defense didn't play poorly against the Bears, but it didn't really do anything to move the fantasy needle.
How do you build on a week in which you force three turnovers and take one to the house? By forcing five and taking two of them back for six. The Bears have turned this into an art form.
The Jets sacked EJ Manuel eight times and are looking like a weekly starter.
Atlanta had a nice day in Miami, sacking Ryan Tannehill five times and picking him off once. It's a defense that could be worth streaming this week.
Baltimore shut down Matt Schaub, limiting him to 5.5 YPA, and also kept the Houston run game quiet. They should have another nice game this week.
The Titans held Philip Rivers to 184 yards and the San Diego run game to fewer than four yards per carry. I like the matchup with the Jets.
You may want to start everyone on this offense, but the Denver defense really doesn't do much for fantasy owners on a weekly basis.
Led by Cameron Jordan, the Saitns defense has been one of the strongest units all year. Get them active this week.
Tony Romo and DeMarco Murray ripped apart the St. Louis defense last week as the Rams continue to fall short of the sleeper potential many thought they had.
Don't be fooled by the 27 points allowed to the Vikings last week. Cleveland effectively shut down Adrian Peterson and did a much better job against Christian Ponder than the Bears did the prior week.
Tampa Bay had another solid defensive performance last week, but it doesn't do enough in the way of sacks and takeaways to consider as a fantasy defense.
Well, last week's game against the Broncos pretty much went as expected. The Raiders could have a solid showing this week, though.
The Patriots held the Buccaneers to three points, but they didn't do a whole lot in the way of sacks or turnovers. I wouldn't consider them against the Falcons.
The Dolphins held Matt Ryan relatively in check last week. They'll have their work cut out for them against Drew Brees on Monday night.
I was positively shocked by what the Colts' offense was able to do in San Francisco last week. Now the Niners are without Aldon Smith and, potentially, Patrick Willis.
Tarvaris Jackson completed 7-of-8 passes for 129 yards and a TD against this team in garbage time last week. Tarvaris Jackson.
Detroit's defense was pretty quiet in Washington last week, and with the Bears improved line I think it'll be more of the same on Sunday.
The Jets -- THE JETS! -- lit up the Bills, with Geno Smith throwing for 331 yards and Bilal Powell running for another 149. Stay away.
The Vikings forced three turnovers and sacked Brian Hoyer three times, but it was surprising to see them surrender 31 points. I wouldn't trust them this week.
Washington could easily set a record for most passing yards allowed in a season.
The Chargers made Jake Locker look like one of the better QBs in the league last week, and though the youngster is improving that does not bode well for their chances against Dallas.
You pretty much don't want to play any defense going up against Peyton Manning and the Broncos right now.
After getting torched by Cam Newton and DeAngelo Williams, the Giants defense is not one you can start with any confidence.
Don't blame the Houston defense for last week's loss. Two of Baltimore's three touchdowns were of the return variety (one punt, one interception).
