Let’s say you drafted the Chiefs defense in your season long fantasy league. Great pick! They should be a top-5 defense this year, but you’re not going to want to have anything to do with them this Thursday against the Patriots. So here are three team defenses you can target that are readily available in most leagues.

1. ATLANTA  – AVAILABLE IN 56% OF YAHOO LEAGUES – AT CHICAGO

The Bears are rebuilding and welcome the defending Super Bowl runner-ups who blew a 28-3 lead in the biggest game of their life. Think they might want to make a point? Mike Glennon is slow and glued to the pocket which means plenty of points for sacks and a big day ahead for Vic Beasley who had 15 ½ sacks last year.

2. CINCINNATI  – AVAILABLE IN 77% OF YAHOO LEAGUES – VS BALTIMORE

AFC North matchups tend to putter and be very defensive oriented and the Bengals have dominated Joe Flacco over the last several years. He’s 2-6 lifetime on the road at Cincinnati and thrown 12 interceptions compared to just five touchdowns. Don’t forget he didn’t play any part of the preseason.

3. BUFFALO – AVAILABLE IN 65% OF YAHOO LEAGUES – VS NEW YORK (JETS)

Because it’s the Jets… that’s why.
