NFL DFS DS/T Recommendations for Week Two
Anyone that thought the Ravens defense would put the lockdown on the Bengals offense Thursday night was left disappointed. It was a primetime game! Did someone forget to tell Andy Dalton that? Four touchdowns, no sacks, and no picks— you go, Andy!
But games like that just go to show how difficult it can be to pick the right daily fantasy defense (DS/T). The Ravens were not expected to dominate the Bengals like they did the Bills last week. But they were not expected to let Andy Dalton look like an All-Pro.
Not sure if your usual defense is going to be up to the task this week? Wondering if you should try someone new?
How about a few DFS DS/T recommendations?
The safest and most expensive bet this week is the Los Angeles Rams. Sam Bradford and David Johnson could not get it going last week against the Redskins. It is hard to see them doing any better this week against the Rams.
Some of the other usual suspects look like good bets as well. The Denver Broncos could easily give Jon Gruden and the Raiders there second beating in a row. With Marcos Mariota’s health in question and Delanie Walker out for the season, there is a good chance the Houston Texans defense is going to go nuts.
But if you need a cut-rate DS/T, give these guys a look:
- Washington Redskins: Andrew Luck may be back, but the Indianapolis Colts are still not very good.
- San Francisco 49ers: Holding the Vikings to just 24 points and 343 total yards was pretty good. Considering how the Lions did last week, it is not hard to see the 49ers DS/T having another big day this week.
- Carolina Panthers: Did you see these guys maul the Cowboys offense? The Panthers have the best front four in football. Matt Ryan is in trouble (and Devonta Freeman is out).
- Los Angeles Chargers: Yes, I know; they bombed last week against the Chiefs, and Joey Bosa is out—but they are playing the Bills. Oh—and the Bills are starting a rookie QB who is not ready; he’s just the better of two bad options.
I’d say go with the Texans this week. Deshaun Watson is going to get better with each week. Tennessee’s offense could become severely limited if Mariota can’t go. It’s already limited after losing Delanie Walker.
