I'm a big fan of the matchup defense, meaning you choose your defense based more on who the defense is playing than the defense itself.
That allows you to get a solid defense each week, without burning a high pick in your draft. This week, you should be able to grab one of the top five defenses off the wavier wire.
Last Update: Sept. 18
|Rank & Team||Opponent||Notes|
|1. Texans||@NYG||The Texans are a great matchup play because they face the turnover-prone Giants.|
|2. Patriots||OAK||The Patriots are a good play this week because they face the Oakland offense.|
|3. Bengals||TEN||The Bengals are usually worth starting and this week is no different.|
|4. Panthers||PIT||I'm not high on the Panthers defense this year, but they are still worth starting.|
|5. Ravens||@CLE||Baltimore is a decent matchup option if you're hurting this week.|
|6. Seahawks||DEN||It's a tough matchup for the Seahawks this week.|
|7. 49ers||@ARI||The 49ers defense has down well thus far.|
|8. Cardinals||SF||Not the best matchup for the Cards, but they've done well so far.|
|9. Broncos||SEA||Denver doesn't have the greatest matchup, but you could do worse.|
|10. Colts||@JAC||The Colts defense isn't that good, but if you're desperate, they have a good matchup.|
