LA Chargers defense
It made sense to start the Chargers’ defense last week against the Bengals and it worked out pretty well in most fantasy formats. It goes without saying though that you simply don’t start a fantasy defense against the Chiefs. Avoid the Chargers’ defense at all costs. In a 10 or 12 man league, there’s certainly a better option to stream.
The Jets’ defense might be a good play against the 49ers considering all of the injuries they’re dealing with on offense.
Starting Tyrod Taylor doesn’t make a lot of sense unless you’re in a really deep league. Considering the matchup vs. the Chiefs’ secondary, I have a feeling he’ll be a more efficient passer in this game. Expect him to have more than six runs for seven yards as well. The Chargers know that they have to get more creative in this one.
Taylor is a 60+% passer for his career, so it’s unlikely he’s going to miss quite as many throws as he did in Week 1. My prediction for a stat line in this one would be something like 250 yards, 2 TDs, and 0-1 interceptions. Looking forward though, it may not be a bad idea to stick Taylor on your bench prior to the matchup with the Panthers’ rebuilding defense.
