Defense/Special Teams

Pittsburgh Steelers (at CIN) $4,000 – The Steelers defense had been playing quite well prior to last week. Now, they get a matchup against the only winless team in the league starting a fourth-round rookie at quarterback behind an atrocious O-line. This could be a big day for Pittsburgh, hence why they’re the highest-priced defense.

Cleveland Browns (vs. MIA) $3,800 – Yes, the Dolphins offense has been playing better and the Browns obviously no longer have Myles Garrett. While that may be true, there’s still little faith in Miami and this could be a turnover-happy Cleveland defense on Sunday.

Buffalo Bills (vs. DEN) $3,400 – Buffalo’s defense has undeniably come back down to Earth after a slow start to the season. While that may be the case, Brandon Allen and the Broncos seem doomed to have a disaster game sooner rather than later and the Bills could be the cause of that.

Detroit Lions (at WAS) $3,100 – Can the Lions defense be taken advantage of? Absolutely, and many teams have done so this season. The question is if Dwayne Haskins and this awful Washington offense are capable of taking advantage of that and I’m not sure that’s the case.

Dallas Cowboys (at NE) $2,300 – Yes, the Cowboys have been bad on defense lately and are now facing the Patriots. However, Brady and the New England offense have not been clicking of late and this could be an intriguing spot to save some money.

Cincinnati Bengals (vs. PIT) $2,100 – If you really want to scrape the bottom of the barrel, the Steelers offense is banged up beyond belief and Rudolph has been playing horribly. The Bengals may not be a high-scoring defense but they may not hurt you at a dumpster price.
