3 Fantasy Football Defensive Streaming Options for Week 3
Yahoo Ownership: 14%
numberFire Projected Rank: 17th
If you watched the two primetime games this past weekend, you probably noticed that the Dallas Cowboys have one of the best pass rushes in the league, and the Seattle Seahawks continue to have issues with their offensive line. As always, sacks and turnovers are key for a big defensive performance in fantasy, and when a team struggles to protect their quarterback, that leads to both.
Through two weeks, the Cowboys have 9 sacks, second-most behind only the Chicago Bears. The Cowboys are fresh off a six-sack game against the New York Giants and coincidentally, the Seahawks just allowed six sacks to the Bears on Monday.
It's been a rough start to the season for Russell Wilson. He's been sacked six times in each game, and he's committed multiple turnovers in each outing.
The Seahawks have started the season with two road games. Sunday will be their home opener, and they are initially listed as a 3.0-point favorite. But against a Cowboys defense that is vastly improved from years past -- they rank ninth, per numberFire's schedule-adjusted metrics -- Wilson could very well struggle for a third week in a row.
Looking ahead, the Cowboys will remain a strong defensive play come Week 4 when they host the currently 0-2 Detroit Lions.
