The 2016 NFL season is 16 weeks old and the time is now to use your fantasy football waiver wire to try and find the perfect defense to play each week. Every year a no name blows up in Week 1 and ends up being a top-20 fantasy football player over the remainder of the season. So, instead of letting your competition beat you to the punch, use your fantasy football waiver wire to find the next big thing.
Pittsburgh Steelers D/ST

This week in “play them because they’re going against the Browns,” it’s the Steelers. Despite the Browns notching their first win last week and the fact that the Steelers will likely be resting a bunch of their starters with their third seed in the AFC clinched, this is still a good matchup for Pittsburgh.
The Browns are 31st in total offense and will be without a number of playmakers, and the Steelers defense has been a turnover machine as of late, with an interception in seven of their last eight games. They also have multiple sacks in seven of their last eight games. The Steelers are one of the best options this week, so pick them up if they’re available.
