I’m back with my Week 2 defense rankings and taking some time to reflect on Week 1 and I clearly didn’t give Washington enough credit for their pass-rushing potential. They stomped all over the the Eagles’ injury hit offensive line to register eight sacks on Carson Wentz, as well as picking him off twice and forcing a fumble to finish tied first with the Ravens and Saints with a league leading 15 fantasy points. Without being too reactionary, I’m moving them up a fair few spots this week as they travel to the desert to face the Cardinals, who themselves put in a solid Week 1 performance as they defeated the 49ers.
Week 2 Top Streaming Option: Los Angeles Rams @ Philadelphia Eagles
I’m doubling down on the Eagles’ offensive line woes as they welcome Aaron Donald and company to town in Week 2. Even with Lane Johnson likely to return, he wont be at full health and the Rams will look to unleash the pass rush and pile on the misery to the Eagles’ start to the season. The Rams are just 13% owned in ESPN leagues right now so should be available on most waiver wires.
