    Week 2 Defense and Special Teams (DST) Rankings and Analysis – Fantasy Football 2013

    Wow! Week 1 had a ton of surprises didn’t it! The fumble issues by some key backs, all the safeties, the Jets with the upset. The list goes on and on! I was in Minneapolis watching my Blue Jays play the Twins all weekend and on Sunday I barely watched any baseball because I had my face glued to the TV watching football. What can I say, I’m a little addicted to football.

    Week 2 has a lot of great match ups, can’t wait for the Sunday nighter. 49ers and Seahawks is going to be a war! My number 1 defense this week is the Bengals. The Titans got to Big Ben 5 times! The Titans are nothing compared to that defense in Cincinnati, could be a very long day for Ben and his Steelers. Who knows though, if week 2 is anything like week 1, it will be full of surprises. Enjoy the week 2 defense and special teams rankings and analysis!

      So I have the Bears and the Texans. You’d start Chicago?

    • Ryan_13

      Ya man, either way you should get a good score from your D and really it could go either way with those two defenses , I just really don’t like Ponder. As good as Peterson is , I just think Ponder looked bad. The Chargers did score 4 touchdowns against the Texans.
      That’s why I ranked the Bears ahead , but like I said you should score some points either way.

      Thx man

      What’s your outlook on the Chiefs? I saw them blow up against the Jags, but have to admit that’s like shooting fish in a barrel.

      My logic is trying to sort out whether KC or Carolina has more long term defensive value ahead.

    • Ryan_13

      I wanna see it against a better team than the Jags. Gabbert is terrible. If they can do it against the Cowboys this week then they could be something. Carolina’s defense is really good against the run. Held Lynch to only 43 yards. So as of now I’d say Carolina has more long term value now. But keep an eye on KC this week. They also play Philly next week on Thursday , so two tough matchups and on a short week. Could be a good test for the Chiefs and see how good they are.
