Week 2 Defensive Field of Streams September 13, 2016  |  adam cook


There were many expected–and unexpected–happenings in Week 1. The expected happenings range from the Cowboys losing a another game minus Tony Romo, and the unexpected being stud wide out Keenan Allen catching a tremendously bad break. Let’s recap how my Week 1 predictions went and head to Week 2.

 

Recap of Week 1 Predictions:

Green Bay Packers vs. Jaguars – They ended being a solid selection. They did not get the defensive touchdown off of Blake Bortles that I was hoping for, but 3 sacks and 1 interceptions isn’t bad.

San Francisco 49ers vs. Rams – This might be my best call of the year, as you cannot do any better than a shutout. I thought the Hard Knocks hangover would be a thing and boy was it ever.

Cleveland Browns vs. Eagles – My true dark horse for Week 1 did not do me any favors. I thought they could get to Carson Wentz, but Wentz was more poised than I anticipated. You know they are a bad defense when Joe Haden is getting beat by Nelson Agholor.

Chalk Em’ Up

 

Carolina Panthers vs. San Francisco: 100% owned in Yahoo Leagues ($3,900)

Carolina is on extra rest hosting a west coast team that has to play at a 1:00 p.m. eastern start on a short week.

 

Seattle Seahawks vs. Los Angeles: 100% owned ($3,800 on DraftKings)

Did you watch the highlights of the Rams game last week? Exactly…there were none.

 

Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco: 99% owned ($3,300)

This is only a chalk play if Russell Wilson sits out. I expect the Rams to rebound from an embarrassing Monday night performance.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Chicago: 48% owned in Yahoo leagues ($3,300 on DraftKings)

  • **I am trying my luck again at picking the “DST playing on Monday Night” narrative.
  • **The Bears have a weak offensive line that should not be able to contain the likes of Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, and Connor Barwin.
  • **The only threatening offensive threat Chicago has is Alshon Jeffery, and I don’t see Jay Cutler getting enough time to throw to beat them deep.
  • **The Bears allowed 5 sacks to the Houston Texans in Week 1.
  • **Jay Cutler could implode at any time, leaving the Eagles DST with top 3 upside in Week 2

 

New York Jets @ Buffalo: 37% owned ($3,300)

  • **Despite Revis getting torched last week, the Jets still managed a very impressive 7 sacks against Cincinnati.
  • **They face a Buffalo Bills offense off a short week that only scored a meager 7 points against the Ravens last week.
  • **Sammy Watkins may very well play, but he was not very effective on his sore foot and is clearly not 100%
  • **I have trust in Todd Bowles to develop a game plan to limit LeSean McCoy and put up a top 10 DST scoring week.

 

Baltimore Ravens @ Cleveland: 9% owned ($3,300)

  • **This matchup would look much better if Robert Griffin III was playing quarterback and not Josh McCown, who beat the Ravens last year.
  • **The Ravens defense was very stout last week in limiting Buffalo to only 7 points scored.
  • **The Browns have limited playmakers that can burn defenses, with Josh Gordon still being suspended.
  • **The sack potential is there as Cleveland allowed 3 to Philadelphia last week.
  • **I expect the Browns to struggle moving the ball without a running game, and the strength of the Ravens defense is in their front 7.
