San Francisco 49ers, D/ST
The 49ers defense had a nice performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week, allowing just 10 offensive points as they returned two of their three interceptions of Jameis Winston for touchdowns and sacked him three times.
In Week 2, the 49ers will face a Cincinnati Bengals’ offense that will be without wide receiver A.J. Green (ankle) and might be without running back Joe Mixon after he suffered an ankle injury of his own in Week 1. Even if Andy Dalton plays well, the Bengals may be operating in a very depleted state beyond what has become an injury-hampered offensive line.
Another week with two pick-sixes can’t be expected. But San Francisco’s defense is a solid fantasy streamer for Week 2, with the chance at being sustainably startable beyond that.
