The Cincinnati Bengal defense is the best play this week if you love to stream your fantasy defenses.
Analysis: We won’t even go into the Cincinnati performance or lack thereof Monday night. What we will do is take a deeper look into the Cleveland-Philly week one matchup. The Eagles turned the ball over five times, FIVE times and the Browns still only managed to score sixteen points. Brandon Weeden threw four picks and was sacked twice in his NFL debut all while picking up a 5.1 passer rating in the process. Weeden only completed 34% of his passes and he did fumble two times. Key stat- the Browns only made it into the red zone twice at home against Philly who turned the ball over five times.
Say what you will about the Bengal D but the Browns are just plain awful. Trent Richardson can’t do much on the ground if his quarterback is sporting a 5.1 passer rating. The Cincinnati D is available in ninety percent of leagues so you’re going to have to act fast in order to capitalize on such a great matchup.
