The 2019 NFL season is just 1 week old and it’s time to start streaming defenses from your fantasy football waiver wire. Unless you own a top-5 defense, you are better off finding the best option each week from your fantasy football waiver wire. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the team defense that is going to help you win your matchup.
Let’s get things started by taking a look at some fantasy football waiver wire team defenses that could help your team in Week 2.
Carolina Panthers, D/ST
The Panthers allowed 30 points to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 1, but they did hold Jared Goff to 4.8 yards per attempt. A much more favorable situation is coming in Week 2.
After offseason talk Jameis Winston might be a different quarterback this year, he threw three interceptions against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 1 (including two pick-sixes). In seven career games against the Panthers, Winston has a 79.1 passer rating with multiple passing touchdowns just twice.
Perhaps even more so on a short week Thursday night game, Carolina’s defense is line up for success in Week 2. But the upside is immense, with Winston to provide some turnover opportunities.
