FANTASY FOOTBALL IN-SEASON FEATURES
||The most opportunistic defense in recent memory against a backup quarterback. Me likey.
||Have you seen Byron Leftwich's elongated throwing motion? Terrell Suggs has; you can tell by the big smile on his face.
||The Bengals rank second in sacks, which suggests they'll apply plenty of pressure on a Chiefs team that's turned the ball over 30 times this year.
||A home date with Jay Cutler would have been nice. A home date with Jason Campbell... niiiiice.
||Philip Rivers has been efficient... except when he hasn't been. And Denver's league-leading pass rush should encourage inefficiency.
||Sacks, picks, defensive scores and the pressure of a high-scoring offense against... Blaine Gabbert?
||Philly is top-five in sacks allowed, fumbles, picks, and defensive scores served up... and now they're going with a rookie quarterback.
||No team has allowed more kick return touchdowns than Detroit; if you're on the fence about Randall Cobb, keep that in mind.
||The Cards are giving up a sack more per game than any other team. John Abraham, start your engine.
||On the bright side, the Jets haven't forgotten how to play defense. Too bad they don't get to face their own offense.
||Pretty simple, really: the Pats are forcing turnovers, the Colts are giving the ball away. Proven recipe for defensive fantasy points.
||A top-5 intercepting defense against a top-10 intercepted quarterback. Things could get interesting.
||Tony Romo has made plenty of mistakes, but are the Browns capable of forcing him into more?
||The Bills aren't afraid of turning the ball over, but this iteration of the Dolphins isn't particularly encouraging in that regard.
||Gang Green isn't threatening anyone offensively; Jeff Fisher's defense might just be able to make them pay.
||Carson Palmer's been known to throw it around more than a little bit, and the Saints are beginning to find their defensive mojo.
||Gonna be tough for San Diego to generate defensive fantasy points against the best-protected quarterback in the league.
||You'd think with the improved corners and the pass rush and all, the numbers would be better. But they're not.
||Andy Dalton has turned the ball over plenty. Not as much as KC's quarterbacks, of course, but still...
||Detroit's defensive line against what's left of Green Bay's offensive line. So we're sayin' there's a chance.
||Buffalo has a solid secondary and may be catching Miami at the right time, fresh off a drubbing by the Titans.
||Tampa Bay's offense has been hot--not the sort of unit you want to toss a mediocre fantasy defense in front of.
||The Falcons have just eight turnovers. Patrick Peterson can't pick six without the "pick" part.
||A bottom-five fantasy defense against an elite offense. Not particularly promising, on the defensive side at least.
||You'd think a ball or two would get lost in Brett Keisel's beard. Maybe in Pittsburgh, but not in Baltimore.
||Remember when the Eagles used to get after the quarterback and create turnovers and stuff? Yeah, that was really cool.
||The Jags rank dead-dog last in defensive fantasy points; a trip to über-efficient (and über-potent) Houston isn't going to help.
||No team has fewer takeaways than Indy, no team has fewer giveaways than the Patriots. End of story.
