Defenses -- Start 'Em

Team Player

Falcons defense The Falcons defense scored the second-most points on NFL.com last week, and a Week 2 matchup against turnover-prone Jake Delhomme could mean another successful stat line is on the horizon. The Eagles defense scored 40-plus points in most formats against the Panthers in Week 1, and even half that total would be a great output for a Falcons defense that's still available in more than 60 percent of leagues.

More defenses with favorable matchups

1. Vikings defense at Lions: Total no brainer; Vikings should dominate rookie quarterback Matthew Stafford.

2. Titans defense vs. Texans: Texans offense looked shaky vs. Jets in Week 1; Titans stout on their home field.

3. Redskins defense vs. Rams: Rams have no offense outside of Steven Jackson; held without a point in Week 1.

4. Seahawks defense at 49ers: Seahawks scored 4th-most points among fantasy defense on NFL.com in Week 1.

5. Packers defense vs. Bengals: Packers 3-4 defense looked stout in Week 1; Bengals offense struggled in opener.

Sleeper alert: Saints defense at Eagles: If Kolb starts, Saints defense could force several turnovers in Week 2.
