Chet Gresham's Fantasy Football Defense Rankings: Week 7
To differentiate between all the "Start 'Ems" on Walt's Fantasy Football Start Em, Sit Em page, you can check out the Weekly Fantasy Football Rankings, so you can figure out whom to start between Player X and Player Y.
Below are my fantasy defense rankings and a set of links for my positional Weekly NFL Fantasy Football Rankings. Keep in mind that this list is for this week only; not the entire rest of the season.
The rankings are based on a traditional scoring system. Each player has Walterfootball.com's projected stats and standard scoring points.
Minnesota Vikings (versus Ravens)
Joe Flacco has been awful this season, and now he heads to Minnesota to take on a tough defense. Flacco's eight interceptions ties him for the second worst in the league.
Seattle Seahawks (at Giants)
The Broncos were not ready for the ground-and-pound Giants, but the Seahawks should be.
Buffalo Bills (versus Bucs)
If Ryan Fitzpatrick starts, I'm a big fan of the Bills this week.
Denver Broncos (at Chargers)
Philip Rivers can get into an interception funk quickly, and the Broncos are one of the top defenses in the league and coming off a loss.
Jacksonville Jaguars (at Colts)
Jacoby Brissett has played well enough, but the Jaguars' defense is stout to say the least.
Kansas City Chiefs (at Raiders)
Derek Carr was not his best last week, and he could still be hampered by a broken back.
Carolina Panthers (at Bears)
The Bears will try to run the ball and keep Trubisky from needing to do too much, but the Panthers can score, and if they get a good lead, Trubisky would be forced to push the ball.
Tennessee Titans (at Browns)
The Titans are a bad defense, but DeShone Kizer leads the league in turnovers.
New Orleans Saints (at Packers)
I think Brett Hundley could put together a decent fantasy game, but I also think he'll make some mistakes.
Pittsburgh Steelers (versus Bengals)
This game will likely be lower scoring with two strong pass defenses, and division rivals, squaring off.
Baltimore Ravens (at Vikings)
Case Keenum has played well, but the Ravens' pass defense is one of the best in the league. Stefon Diggs also may not be 100 percent.
