NFL 2020: Week 7 Streaming Defenses

We have made it to Week 7! The teams on a bye this week are: Baltimore Ravens, Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings.

If streaming defenses has been part of your strategy, let’s go.

LOS ANGELES CHARGERS, ROSTERED 27% YAHOO LEAGUES

The Chargers are most likely on the outs because they are coming off their bye week. They are also coming off the week a little bit healthier. It is reported that both Melvin Ingram and Chris Harris Jr., will be back on the field.

This week, the Chargers will play the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars’ offensive line has given up the 18th most sacks. Quarterback, Gardner Minshew, has thrown 11 interceptions. The Jaguars have the seventh most drives that end in a turnover.

Now, while it is true that the Chargers have only eight sacks, they are third in quarterback hurries. All this is looking up with Ingram and Harris Jr. back on the field.

CLEVELAND BROWNS, ROSTERED 24% YAHOO LEAGUES

The Browns as a team were a little bit of a mess last week. The defense gave up 38 points to the Pittsburgh Steelers and the offense managed only seven points. The defense did record two sacks against a pretty good offensive line.

This week, they will go against a really bad offensive line. The Bengals are 31st in the NFL in sacks allowed. The Browns’ defense is second in quarterback hurries and are the second best team in the league in drives that end in an offensive turnover (18.2%). Not to mention that they have the sixth best rushing defense.

Myles Garrett and the Browns’ defense should rebound nicely.

WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM, ROSTERED 34% YAHOO LEAGUES

The Washington Football Team’s offense is a mess right now. They are 30th in points per game (18) and 27th in red zone scoring attempts (27). But through it all, their defense has remained pretty legit.

They now have rookie, Chase Young, back on the field. Even with his absence, they are still 10th in sacks per game (2.7), 11th in quarterback hurries and 13th in pressure rate.

This bodes well for them as they will go up against a reeling Dallas Cowboys team who seemed legitimately loss without Dax Prescott. The Cowboys are 21st in sacks allowed and their drumming last week by the Arizona Cardinals showed an alarming propensity for their offense to give the ball to the other team.
