NFL 2021: Week 4 Streaming Defenses

We know it is all about the match-ups for those who prefer to change our defenses in and out, and Week 4 has some tasty ones.

TENNESSEE TITANS 14% Rostered @ New York Jets, 45.5 o/u, Titans 7.5 favorite

The Titans are not a very good defense.  They rank 12th against the run yielding 100 rushing yards per game, and 18th against the pass giving up 259.3 average passing yards per game. 

But what is most disappointing is they rank last in team takeaways. 

Enter the New York Jets.  In three weeks, the Jets have given up 15 sacks and seven turnovers, and just what the Titans and your fantasy defensive team needs.

DETROIT LIONS 1% Rostered @ Chicago Bears, 41.5 o/u, Bears 3.0 favorite

This is more about the Matt Nagy approach to football than anything else. 

Last week, the Chicago Bears scored six total points.  The then quarterback, Justin Fields, attempted only 20 passes (he completed six of those).  Running back, David Montgomery, had 10 rushing attempts. 

This is not a powerhouse offense. 

The Lions’ defense is nothing to write home about. They rank 23rd in passing yards allowed, 15th in rushing yards allowed, and 31st in points allowed.  However, this is again about the Matt Nagy approach to offense, and Detroit’s defense isn’t looking so bad in comparison.

GREEN BAY PACKERS 15 % Rostered v Pittsburgh Steelers, 45.5 o/u, Packers 6.5 favorite

In days past, this game would easily have an over/under of above 50+. 

But here we are, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, is averaging 6.2 yards per attempt (26th). He has attempted 130 passes with a 63.8% completion rate.  He has thrown three touchdowns and three interceptions in three weeks. 

Najee Harris is averaging 3.08 rushing yards attempts (he does have 27 targets). And to add further humiliation, the Steelers were just beaten by the Cincinnati Bengals 10-24. 

The Steelers will face the Packers, who are meh against the run but ninth against the pass. The Packers are coming off a four-sack one interception game against the Niners.
