Team Defense (D/ST) Draft Sleepers

Football is a fickle game. NFL defenses can be the same. A defense can be good one year and not so good the next. The common sentiment is the need to get rid of defenses in fantasy football. While this much like the kicker, debate is a good thought, it has not happened yet. Until... Read More

Waiver Wire Express - Week 10 Lightning Round

Week 9 felt a bit "chalkier" than other recent NFL slates, with many big names going off and very few lower-owned players coming on to vulture touchdowns from the big guns. There also weren't any notable injuries (as of Sunday evening), so the waiver wire will consist more of underappreciated assets rather than replacements. We here... Read More

Cincinnati Bengals (DEF) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

ANALYSIS: The Cincinnati Bengals defense's next game will feel like a breeze compared to playing Kansas City.

Jameis Winston is always good for some turnovers -... Read More

Washington Redskins (DEF) - Week 8 Waiver Wire Pickups

ANALYSIS: Through three quarters, the Washington Redskins defense had completely held the Cowboys in check, especially Ezekiel Elliott.
