Rank Name Team Vs
Int Fum Sack Pts
1Patriots,New EnglandNEPKCC2121933613.4
After last weeks 1 interception and no sack performance they look to rebound at Kansas City on Monday night. 
Eli can always be counted on to help a defense out at least once. If Washington keeps up early and the Giants get away from the run, the Redskins could force multiple turnovers. 
3Giants,New YorkNYGWAS1031929413.3
Cousins and crew aren't turnover machines and neither is the Giants' defense. New York looks to let up a ton of points this week leaving little upside. 
Tier Break
Buffalo didn't do much last week registering only 1 sack against the Chargers. They look to rebound at Houston this week. 
It was a complete shock to watch what was considered an elite defense collapse during the second half of Carolina's surprising home loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Is the absence of Greg Hardy (NFL exempt list) really that big of a deal? Can the Panthers rebound? They probably will play better, but this road matchup against the Baltimore Ravens offense is not a great one. On the season, the efficient Ravens have allowed just three sacks and have committed only three turnovers. 
The Falcons defense lit it up last week against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense that clearly wasn't mentally or emotionally ready to play football. Can Atlanta rack up some big fantasy points versus an Adrian Peterson-less Minnesota Vikings offense with mobile rookie Teddy Bridgewater starting at quarterback? With turnover machine Matt Cassel (foot) out of the mix, it doesn't look like it. Consider the Falcons a weak play. 
7Chargers,San DiegoSDCJAC0121429812.0
Getting improved play from its corners and rush linebackers, this defense isn't a turnover machine but has held opposing offenses in check -- especially the past two weeks. Blake Bortles will struggle in his first NFL start, traveling cross-country to face San Diego and behind very poor blocking. 
8Jets,New YorkNYJDET0132126812.0
They will slow down Detroit's rushing attack but could be in for long afternoon against Stafford. 
Tier Break
The Texans look like a weak play. On the season, Houston has averaged 1.33 sacks, 0.67 interceptions and 1.67 recovered fumbles per game. The Buffalo Bills offense has allowed just 1.33 sacks per game and has turned the ball over just once so far in 2014. 
All of the Panthers running backs are injured and their running quarterback is not 100%. Great spot for the Ravens. 
Rank Name Team Vs
Int Fum Sack Pts
A tough match up against the Falcons will limit the fantasy points available here. 
The Colts played like an elite unit last week (four sacks, two picks, one fumble, one touchdown scored), but the Jacksonville Jaguars offense can make life easy for any defense. Indianapolis, however, actually looks like a decent plug-and-play option against a sagging Tennessee Titans offense - especially if Jake Locker (wrist) isn't healthy enough to play (Charlie Whitehurst likely would start in his place). On the season, the Titans offense has allowed eight sacks and thrown four interceptions. 
Their pass defense has been quality, and Ryan Tannehill (inconsistent being the operative word) is on the slate for Week 4, but there really isn't the sort of fantasy upside here that you're looking to cash in on. 
This was supposed to be a good spot for this unit, but McCown got injured as well as a third of the Steelers starters. Look elsewhere. 
The Jets offense is nothing to write home about, but they do protect the ball. Minimal opportunity this week for fantasy scoring here. 
Good match up against Carr this week, but we would like them more this week if this were a home game. 
Even with Colin Kaepernick and the offense hitting some speed bumps, it is still unwise to bet against them. 
The Packers offense has been struggling, but they are always dangerous. Expect movement between the 20s so plenty of yards, but not a ton of points given up. Rodgers has been sacked a few times, so some fantasy points are to be gained there. 
Tier Break
Following a great start to the season, the Tennessee defense has gotten progressively worse. During the last two weeks, the Titans have allowed an average of 29.5 points per game. They also have averaged just two sacks and one takeaway per contest. Tennessee is a weak play against an Indianapolis Colts offense that has scored 29.6 points per game. The Colts also have given up just 1.67 sacks per contest and turned the ball over 1.67 times per outing. 
2049ers,San FranciscoSFOPHI112243748.8
The injuries to this unit are showing up on the fantasy stat line. They simply aren't getting it done. Try to shop the name recognition in a trade before it's too late. 
Rank Name Team Vs
Int Fum Sack Pts
21Buccaneers,Tampa BayTBBPIT111323988.5
Consider the Buccaneers a weak play. The Tampa Bay defense cobbled together a decent fantasy outing last week thanks to scoring a touchdown off a recovered fumble. On the season, the Buccaneers have averaged just 1.33 sacks and 1.67 takeaways per game. The Pittsburgh Steelers offense has given up just 2.0 sacks per outing and turned the ball over just 1.33 times per contest. 
22Chiefs,Kansas CityKCCNEP102253868.5
Some of the usual household names have been playing well, Dontari Poe and Tamba Hali among them. Defensive end Allen Bailey is coming off a big game. But what this defense's lackluster fantasy value comes down to is no turnovers generated. Zero. 
Tier Break
Laughable option against Brees and the high powered Saints offense. Laughable against mostly anyone but especially this week. 
24Saints,New OrleansNOSDAL002223167.0
Consider the Saints a weak play. The New Orleans defense absolutely smothered the Dallas Cowboys defense when the two teams clashed at the Superdome last season. However, the teams are squaring off at AT&T Stadium in Dallas this time, and the 2014 version of the Saints defense has played poorly. On the season, New Orleans has amassed just four sacks and one recovered fumble. The Dallas offense has allowed 2.33 sacks per game and committed 2.33 turnovers per contest. 
Although Jacksonville has racked up an impressive 10 sacks, this unit still isn't a starting option. The Jaguars have allowed a league-worst 39.7 points per game. They also have notched just three takeaways, which all came in Week 1. 
Tier Break
26Packers,Green BayGBPCHI111304056.0
The Bears take good care of the ball, so minimal opportunity for fantasy points this week.
