Atlanta Falcons ($3,400) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers:

The Falcons are 7th in the NFL in takeaways (9 INT’s, 3 FUM)  and Tampa Bay is 9th in the NFL in giveaways (7 INT’s, 4 FUM).

Vincent Jackson is not expected to play on Sunday, so there won’t be a viable second option for Tampa. That’s huge for Atlanta’s already stout defense, because they can let Trufant shadow Mike Evans all game.

With a limited amount of weapons at his disposal, it could be a multi-turnover game for Jameis.

St. Louis Rams ($3,200) vs. San Francisco 49ers:

Colin Kaepernick is terrible and the Rams have posted four double-digit fantasy games so far this season, and a fifth game where they scored 9.

St. Louis is ranked 2nd in sacks and 6th in takeaways. The defense should be able to dominate San Francisco’s offense the entire game, so this is the defense I’ll be rostering in most of my lineups.
