Home / Commentary / STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 10


1. Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles will once again be taking on the New York Giants. Daniel Jones has established himself as a reliable turnover machine, tallying 9 interceptions and 6 fumbles this year. Philadelphia has a good defensive line, and should pressure Jones throughout the game. Some sacks should be expected in this contest. The Eagles have a high ceiling with their turnover potential alone.. and the Giants shouldn’t score much either.

2. Green Bay Packers

Green Bay’s defense has been inconsistent this year. Some weeks, they give up a ton of points, while others they hold opposing offenses in check. Sunday should be a form of the latter, as they face the Jacksonville Jaguars. While the Jags have some fantasy producers, they don’t offer much for real-life scoring. Whether Gardner Minshew II plays or not, expect the Packers to contain the Jaguars offense. Both sacks and turnovers offer this unit some really nice upside.

3. New Orleans Saints

San Francisco continues to deal with massive injury problems; they will be down both Jimmy G and George Kittle for this game. While Garoppolo’s absence might not be a big deal, not having Kittle is significant. San Francisco has struggled all season to find consistency in the passing game, a trend which should continue against the Saints. New Orleans has some talented defensive players, and they’ll have no problems shutting down Nick Mullens. The Saints have a nice floor, and some turnover upside with Mullens at the helm.

4. Chicago Bears

Chicago is likely rostered in your league, but if not, they are worth a pickup. The Bears play host to divisional rival Minnesota, whose ground game has been spectacular lately. Expect Chicago to sell out to Dalvin Cook. This will leave the fate of the game to be decided by Kirk Cousins‘ arm, which is usually unsettling. If the Bears can slow down the Vikings rushing attack, Cousins could easily throw the game away. Sacks and turnovers could abound in this contest.
