Home / Commentary / STREAMING DEFENSES: Week 11


1. Cleveland Browns

Facing Philadelphia is a recipe for fantasy success. Carson Wentz has taken some of the most sacks in the league, mostly due to poor offensive line play. Cleveland has a great pass rush and should have no trouble making Wentz feel uncomfortable in the pocket. Philadelphia has been turning the ball over multiple times a game as well, giving the Cleveland unit some nice upside this week.

2. Los Angeles Chargers

Again, we are lining up a talented pass rushing team against a bad offensive line. The Chargers take on the New York Jets, who will be starting Joe Flacco this week. Flacco is not a good option and is prone to giving the ball away. Joey Bosa should be ready to roll after sitting out last game; multiple turnovers and sacks should be expected from Los Angeles this weekend.

3. Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City will have a rematch against divisional rivals Las Vegas. Earlier in the season, Las Vegas was able to put up 40 points on Kansas City. I don’t see this happening again, as I think Kansas City was caught off guard by how aggressive Las Vegas was. Look for Kansas City to bring heavy pressure against Derek Carr to disrupt his rhythm. Plus, Las Vegas has had offensive line struggles as of late, with players in and out of the lineup. Carr may not commit many turnovers, but he will take some sacks. Kansas City should be a safe floor play.

4. Washington Football Team

Cincinnati is another team with major offensive line problems. Multiple players are injured, and workhorse back Joe Mixon may miss another game. This is good news for Washington, whose pass rush is very underrated. Cincinnati will struggle to block this talented front, and Joe Burrow will be under duress most of the game. Multiple sacks are on the table, and there’s always the possibility for Burrow to commit rookie mistakes while under pressure. Consider Washington a risky but high upside play this weekend.
