Regardless of the injuries, this defense still has young talented players on it. The Giants offensive line continues to struggle protecting Eli Manning and he's shown the ability to make questionable decisions with the ball. They are a solid start in week 2 for matchup purposes. 
Tier Break
They gave up lots of yards but did create some turnovers. Real test this Sunday against Moreno at home. 
3Rams,St. LouisSTLTBB0.40.91418.325917.2
Many owners were expecting different results from this unit seeing a home matchup versus the lowly Vikings. They are still a great defense and should be started without hesitation with another tasty matchup against the Buccaneers in week 2. 
Tier Break
Last week the Jacksonville defense allowed 34 points but amassed five sacks, two recovered fumbles and one interception. Is Jacksonville developing into a fantasy option in some scoring formats? Fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see approach with the Jaguars for now. 
Carolina's revamped secondary will have its hands full with Calvin Johnson, but the must-play Panthers defense still should rack up plenty of fantasy points. The Detroit offense has a mediocre-at-best offensive line that likely will struggle against the Carolina pass rush. The Lions also have been mistake prone in recent years. 
They're awesome at home but pretty darn good on the road as well. Philip Rivers struggled against Arizona and will do the same against the top defense in the league. 
Is the Titans defense for real? Last week, Tennessee held the struggling Kansas City Chiefs to 10 points while tallying four sacks and three interceptions. The Titans will battle a Dallas Cowboys offense that yielded three sacks and four turnovers to the San Francisco 49ers. If you're looking for a streaming option, Tennessee looks like a nice plug-and-play choice. 
Tier Break
8Giants,New YorkNYGARI0.
Palmer was surprisingly effective not turning the ball over and avoiding sacks. The Giants were unsurprisingly ineffective being able to contain Calvin Johnson. Larry Fitz and Michael Floyd could have that kind of impact or the Giants can pin their ears back and play rough, physical football. It all depends on how much you trust Palmer to repeat his ball protecting ways from week one. 
949ers,San FranciscoSFOCHI0.
Regardless of the injuries they looked great. Tony Romo might have been a big help in that. Jay Cutler has a knack for making defenses look good as well. 
Rank Name Team Vs
TD Int Fum Sack Pts
Despite the turmoil around this team this is till a short week at home and the opponent isn't exactly scary. If you own them start them, just hope this weeks events don't impact their performance. 
This unit is worth considering even with Cam Newton back behind center for the Panthers. 
Tier Break
12Chargers,San DiegoSDCSEA0.10.912.11833612.5
With Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch doing their thing, you want no part of this defense for fantasy. There will be more favorable matchups in the coming weeks. 
We would like them more if this were a home game but even with all the injuries at Linebacker they shut down New England in the second half last week. 
The short week and Ravens in disarray almost makes this unit a consideration, but the lack of talent across the board is too much to ignore. Once the Browns woke up their an circles around them, just like others did in the preseason. 
Tier Break
15Packers,Green BayGBPNYJ0.
After a tough opening week, look for them to use the extra rest to prepare for the Jets. They will get after the quarterback this week and be a surprise top 10 unit in week two. 
Decent last week despite having to open on the road versus an underrated Jets offense, led by the ageless Charles Woodson. Houston was balanced and protected the ball, in their lopsided defeat of Washington, but face a stiffer challenge this time. 
Luck and company put up a ton of points on a Denver defense stacked with studs who all played well in week one. The Eagles don't have that luxury so slowing down Luck isn't in the cards.  
18Patriots,New EnglandNEPMIN0.
They imploded during the second half at Miami and looked gassed. This week at Minnesota and facing Peterson after giving up 191 rushing yards last week. 
19Buccaneers,Tampa BayTBBSTL0.
Last week Tampa Bay allowed 20 points and notched just one sack with no takeaways. Meanwhile the struggling St. Louis Rams offense scored just six points, allowed five sacks and committed two turnovers during an ugly home loss to the Minnesota Vikings. There is little reason to think the Rams will turn things around on the road. Consider the Buccaneers a sneaky-but-risky plug-and-play option.

TD Int Fum Sack Pts
The 49ers offense is not in top form, look for this unit to grab a couple sacks and a turnover or two this week. 
Chad Henne tosses the ball downfield a lot given a high potential for interceptions. But a lot of those passes do for scores. You'd be better off looking elsewhere unless you are completely sold on the matchup benefit.  
The Patriots looked mortal in week one, but they are always capable of exploding. Expect a few sacks and maybe a turnover or two, but that is about all. 
As expected, Atlanta's defense struggled at home against the New Orleans Saints last week, allowing 34 points while compiling one interception, one recovered fumble and zero sacks. The Falcons are not a fantasy option. 
No one on this offense has been trained to play defense so you should avoid them until that time comes. 
The potential is there for a late game touchdown, but going up against a team that just put up 500+ yards and 30+ points this is not the week to rely on the Bengals. 
26Jets,New YorkNYJGBP0.10.702.322.33399.3
Not the best of match up this week on the road against Green Bay. Use another defensive option for week 2. 
27Saints,New OrleansNOSCLE00.30.32.922.33199.1
What many thought was a vastly improved Saints defense took a huge step backwards last week against the Falcons. New Orleans allowed 37 points, amassed just one sack and notched just one recovered fumble. Even though the Cleveland Browns offense is a work in progress, the Saints defense is not a safe fantasy play right now. 
Was Houston's success last week (six points allowed, three sacks, two recovered fumbles, a touchdown off a blocked punt) the product of a bounce-back effort or the product of playing a struggling Washington offense? It was likely a combination of both. The Texans likely will blitz rookie Derek Carr non-stop and try to rattle him. Consider the Houston defense a decent starting option. 
Expect a hefty dose of Jamaal Charles this week. We also like Alex Smith to fair better, with Dwayne Bowe back in the lineup.

You need your starters healthy to have some semblance of a chance against Peyton Manning. No such luck, as Derrick Johnson and Mike DeVito are now out for the year. 
Tier Break
This defense could be filthy (in a good way), but the problem is the offense is just as filthy (in a bad way). Only start this unit when you expect them to win and this week is not one of them. 
The Colts have 31 points allowed and one sack to show for their effort against the Denver Broncos last week. That was without leading sacker Robert Mathis (Achilles' tendon), who will miss the rest of the season. Leave Indianapolis on your waiver wire.
