With week one officially over it’s time to take a look at the best available defenses to stream for week two.
Analysis: Although the Baltimore defense got smoked to the tune of 49 points last Thursday it isn’t the end of the world. Baltimore is at home in week two against the Cleveland Browns. The Browns turned the ball over three times Sunday at home against Miami. All three turnovers were interceptions thrown by Brandon Weeden, he was also sacked six times. Weeden now has a 15-20 TD to INT ratio for his career with an awful 70.3 passer rating. Tim Tebow’s career passer rating is 75.3. Hell, even Quincy Carter and Tim Couch have a higher passer rating than Brandon Weeden.
The Baltimore D/ST is available in 30-60% of fantasy leagues. Another interesting but more so risky option this week is the Oakland defense. The Raiders held Indy to 21 points in week one on the road. They have Jacksonville at home this week who only managed to “score” 2 points on Sunday. Chad Henne will get the start for the Jags, he’s sporting a career 74.9 passer rating. The Oakland D/ST is available in 99% of fantasy leagues.
