With the Baltimore Ravens, Houston Texans and Cincinnati Bengals on their bye this week it is imperative to choose the right defense in week eight.
Analysis: Whether you like to stream or need a fill in defense this week it appears that the squad of choice just may be the San Diego Chargers who are coming off of a bye. The Chargers are a top 12 fantasy defense this year while playing high powered teams like Atlanta, New Orleans and Denver. San Diego is in Cleveland this week against the Browns who only managed to put up 13 points on the Colts in week seven.
With the San Diego D you have a unit that is 11th in the NFL in interceptions, 6th in forced fumbles and 5th in fumble recoveries. The Browns on the other hand have Brandon Weeden at quarteback with 10 interceptions in seven games this year. Weeden is also sporting a 72.3 passer rating and a completion percentage of 56%. The Browns are 21st in points per game with the 30th ranked rushing attack so all signs point to a solid San Diego performance in week eight.
