Week 3 Picks: Defense

Offense is important, but defense could land you in the PayoutZone. These defenses are my favorites in week three:

Seattle Seahawks vs Chicago Bears
Forget about what Green Bay and St. Louis were able to do against “The Legion of Boom” in the first two weeks of the season. Seattle is a ticked-off team facing the Bears at home with Jimmy Clausen staring at QB. “The Legion” also gets their enforcer back in Kam Chancellor. I expect the Seahawks to dominate the Bears in this game.

NY Jets vs Philadelphia Eagles
The Jets’ defense has been outstanding thus far this season, leading the league in fewest points allowed and takeaways. Philadelphia comes into this game looking nothing like the high-powered offense Chip Kelly imagined his Eagles would be. The Jets are the worst opponent for a Philly team trying to get its first win of the season.

New England Patriots vs Jacksonville Jaguars
New England’s defense is coming off an 8 sack, 3 INT performance against Buffalo. Jacksonville’s QB Blake Bortles is known to throw a pick six or two, and that’s why I like New England in this one.

Others: Arizona vs. S.F., Houston vs. T.B.

London Fletcher

London Fletcher

London Fletcher is a former American football linebacker who played in the National Football League (NFL). Undrafted in 1998, he was signed by the St. Louis Rams as a rookie free agent and became a Super Bowl champion with the team. He was also a member of the Buffalo Bills, where he played for five seasons, and the Washington Redskins, where he played for seven seasons. Fletcher was well known for never missing a game in his career, being one of only four players in NFL history to play in over 250 consecutive games. Fletcher also holds the record for consecutive starts at the linebacker position. He eventually finished his career with 215 consecutive games started, which ties him for 6th all time along with Alan Page and Ronde Barber. London has agreed to be a writer and representative for the FantasyDraft brand and serves as an ambassador to the site. He has no more access to the site than the typical user.
