Week 4 - The Rams defense has scored 9 points more than the 49ers defense so far this season in fantasy, but they get a touch matchup with Seattle in week 4, a team that doesn’t turn the ball over much. Leave the Rams on waivers but keep an eye on their defense as the season progresses. They could be a decent spot start during your D’s bye week.
Week 2 – If fantasy owners didn’t know how good the St. Louis defense was before week 1, they should know now, as the Rams D very nearly held on to win the game vs the Detroit Lions and Matthew Stafford. As we all know, it didn’t quite work out in the Rams favor, but the defense still managed 13 fantasy points on 3 INT’s (1 was a pick 6) and a sack. Week 2 the Rams will have their hands full, and sense their defense is owned in only 2% of fantasy leagues, owners probably don’t have to worry about starting them. Another solid showing by the defense could see that ownership number jump above 15% after week 2.
