Buccaneers D – Last week we hit gold on the Jaguars defense, and the week before was also profitable with the Chiefs and Vikings defenses doing very well against undermanned offenses. This week we have the Buccaneers D. The Bucs are averaging 19.5 fantasy points per game through two weeks and, while we usually don’t want to chase production at defense, they are playing at home against a Packers team that was completely lost in Week 1 before rolling over the Bears. Forgive me if a slightly above average performance against the Bears isn’t enough evidence to make me a believer. This Bucs D looks like one of the top units in the league, is affordable, and is projected for sub-3% ownership on all sites. Fire ‘em up.
Seahawks D – Seattle is notoriously one of the toughest places to play in the league, the Seahawks have a tough run defense, and Marcus Mariota is prone to taking sacks and turning the ball over. Among “cheap” defenses, they have the best matchup, highest floor, and most potential for a 12 to 15 point game.
