Because turnovers kept putting the Steelers in good field position, the Texans allowed 328 yards, only 12 away from their season low. They recorded three sacks, equaling a season high met twice previously, but their only takeaway was a fumble recovery in the first quarter.
The Texans haven't had a favorable schedule of late, but their DST has mostly held its own. Again, the 30 points given up in this one was as much the fault of the offense. With an appealing matchup Week 8 at Tennessee, the Texans DST is an advisable play in Fantasy.Analysis:
The Packers held the Panthers to just a field goal through three quarters, and allowed just 331 yards of total offense in the game. The Panthers turned the ball over once on an interception by Cam Newton, who was also sacked three times.
The Packers DST unit has scored at least 9 points in five straight games, and is now average 10.6 per game on the season. They will look to keep up the strong play in Week 8 against the Saints.Analysis:
The Bengals offense was all out of sorts Sunday, as the Colts held them to just 135 yards of total offense. The Colts did not force any turnovers in the game, but still racked up a 20-point Fantasy effort, thanks to four sacks.
The Colts don't have a reputation as a great defense, but have done a solid job since a poor start. The Colts are averaging 16.4 Fantasy points over the last five games, with a game against the Steelers on tap for Week 8.Analysis:
The Vikings' offense looked solid in Teddy Bridgewater's first start in Week 4, but things have not gone well since. The Packers and Lions' DST units have racked up 52 combined Fantasy points against the Vikings over the last two games on the strength of 14 sacks, five interceptions and two forced fumbles.
The Vikings' offense has a lot of potential, but that is for the future. Right now it is sputtering, and the Bills' pass rush, which ranks second in the league in sacks, should find success. Consider the Bills a solid starting option for Week 7.Analysis:
