The New York Jets entering week 8 have only racked up 33 total fantasy points. The Jets defense has been a let down this season, but playing the Cleveland Browns can turn that around. Approaching week 8, there are very few defenses who have good a matchup, and are still available in most leagues. This is a big week for fantasy teams as a loss this week could make your playoff dreams disappear. I will help you select the best defense to stream off the week 8 waiver wire this week in order to keep your hopes alive!

New York Jets (20%): It’s always hard to pick a defense that is struggling, and start them as your defense for the week. With the Jets the matchup is the key. The Cleveland Browns offense could be down to their 5th quarterback in rookie Kevin Hogan, a 5th round draft pick out of Stanford. While Hogan showed he can run with the ball, passing was another story throwing 2 interceptions and no touchdowns. Cleveland has scored 21+ points in only 2 games this season.
Oakland Raiders(46%): The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been a turnover prone team. Jameis Winston has thrown an interception in all but 1 game this season. The Buccaneers are looking to be without star running back Doug Martin again in week 8. Expect Jameis Winston to be throwing the ball a ton, and force some throws into coverage.
Cleveland Browns(1%): Wait am I crazy? How can I have the Browns defense on this list. Well, the Jets offense is how I can put Cleveland on this list. The Jets lead the NFL in turnovers this season with 17 giveaways. Cleveland is middle of the pack this season with forcing 8 turnovers. I believe this could be one of the lowest scoring games as both offenses seem to be ineffective to this point of the season. If the Browns can put pressure on Ryan Fitzpatrick, and slow down the run game, then this could be a great pickup for week 8.
