Week one was a big pile of horse manure. When the San Francisco 49ers are one of the top fantasy defenses and the Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland Browns, and Denver Broncos are on the bottom, your world has been turned upside down.
So is this week bounce back time? Eh, not necessarily.

New England Patriots versus Miami Dolphins:
I feel slightly dirty with this suggestion. It isn’t only low hanging fruit. Patently obvious, and safer than a condom (which are only 99.7% safe). Yet after holding Big Ben and the Pittsburgh Steelers to three points, I shudder to think about the massive amount of turnovers this secondary might come up with in their week two excursion to Miami.

Cleveland Browns v New York Jets:
The Browns defense scored ZERO fantasy points last week against the Tennessee Titans. They are so much better than that. I still maintain that while everyone is obsessing over the offensive side of the Browns, it is the defense that will shine. There is no better time than Prime Time against a Jets team that allowed its quarterback to be sacked four times. Not to mention that the most targeted player on the Jets receiving end was running back Le’Veon Bell with nine.
Green Bay Packers v Minnesota Vikings:
Again another defense that is overlooked. Did you see the Chicago game? It was the defense that shined and they are currently only owned in 2.4% of fantasy leagues…WHAT?! The Packers finished as a top five fantasy defense in week one. They also led the league in quarterback pressures in week one. The Vikings are going to have to attempt more than 10 passes. That allows for this improved defense to add to their week one 5 sacks and 11 quarterback hits.
