Los Angeles Rams @NYG
The L.A. Rams have been a decent defense in reality, but a poor D/ST for Fantasy Football. They are currently the 22nd ranked D/ST in the FanatsyFootball7s Charity league, and likely around there in most formats. They are playing the New York Giants without Barkley, and if Jones does play it will be without a full week of practice. Let’s not forget Aaron Donald is playing against a weak offensive line, and coming off of 10 days of rest and preparation.
Miami Dolphins @JAX (UK)
The Miami Dolphins have not lived up to their 2021 expectations, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. This is a get right game if there ever was, playing against the Jags in London. Tua could be back, which should help in T.O.P (Time of Possession). There Dolphins could have a monster game behind multiple turnovers.
Deeper Leagues: Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts
Chicago Bears v GB
The Chicago Bears are the 3rd ranked D/ST. There is not a logical reason to ever start a D/ST against the highest scoring offense over the past 2.5 seasons. As a defensive coordinator you have nightmares about facing Aaron Rodgers, be it NFL or fantasy football. Pine and snag one of the 3 D/ST.
Others: The Cleveland Browns are ranked 4th, but have a tough draw against the red hot Cardinals this week, and 10th ranked New England has Dak and the Boys coming to town, pine them both.
