The Niners put up another monster game without Patrick Willis, posting four takeaways and a TD while allowing just three points. They should have another big day this week.
What a performance by the Bengals a week ago, holding the Patriots to six points and sacking Tom Brady four times. They'll build on that in a huge way against the Bills and QB Thad Lewis, who was just signed off the practice squad.
If not for a questionable flag, the Jets would have had two impressive goalline stands against the Falcons. They registered one takeaway and two sacks while allowing 28 points. Expect them to put the heat on Roethlisberger.
Terrelle Pryor has Oakland buzzing, and for good reason, but Kansas City will take some of the luster off this week.
The Lions seemed to hold Green Bay in check last week, but the Packers rolled up 449 total yards. This is a much better matchup, though, with Brandon Weeden back at the helm of the Browns.
The Colts put up 34 points against the Seahawks last week, but they had just 5.3 yards per play. The Seahawks should have a big day this week.
The Bears don't generate much of a pass rush and give up points, so they're a fantasy zero when they don't force turnovers. This should be a decent week for them.
The strong Carolina run defense will have its hands full against Adrian Peterson.
The Eagles managed to produce four turnovers, but they still allowed Eli Manning to throw for 334 yards. This could be a nice matchup play, though.
Despite the score against the 49ers last week, the Houston defense didn't play that poorly. It allowed just 284 yards in a game that was seemingly over by the end of the first quarter. Expect a strong game this week.
As the Rams proved again last week, no defense is a bad defense to play against the Jaguars.
It wasn't just last week. This is not really a defense you should consider with any consistency.
The Saints didn't do much against the Bears, posting just one takeaway and three sacks, though they played great real-life defense. After seeing what Cincinnati did to the Patriots, this could actually be a decent matchup.
The Browns have had 10 days to prepare for this game, and while I think they'll do an admirable job, you can probably find a better defense this week.
The Steelers have done well against the pass but struggled against the run this year. Expect that trend to continue this week.
The only matchup in which you should possibly trust the Viking defense for fantasy purposes is in Week 7, when it faces the Giants.
The Bills held the Browns to fewer than 300 yards last week, but it'll be a whole lot tougher when the Bengals come to town.
The Rams came through for us on the stream last week, posting three takeaways, two sacks and an interception. Matt Schaub may be on a historic pick-six streak, but you don't want the Rams in your lineup.
Green Bay shut down Detroit last week, but there wasn't much degree of difficulty with Calvin Johnson a surprise inactive. The Packers are a fringe play this week.
The Cardinals picked off Cam Newton three times, sacked him seven times and allowed just six points, posting their best performance of the season. I don't love this matchup, but it isn't terrible, either.
This defense didn't do much of anything against the Seahawks last week and should not be started in San Diego.
Even against a turnover-prone quarterback like Jay Cutler, the Giants cannot be started.
This is not a good matchup for one of the worst teams in the league.
The Ravens sacked Ryan Tannehill six times, but eveyone's doing that these days. This is a terrible matchup for them.
The Titans had two sacks and two takeaways against the Chiefs. I don't like them going into Seattle this week.
The Patriots surprisingly played quite well densively in their first game A.W. (After Wilfork). We'll see how long that lasts.
You saw what the Cowboys did to the Broncos, right? Expect something similar here.
There isn't any reason to ever consider playing the San Diego defense.
The Raiders forced five turnovers last week, but the Chiefs are much more careful than the Chargers when it comes to taking care of the ball.
This is going to be very, very ugly. Unless you own someone on the Broncos.
