DFS911.com will always be looking for that edge when it comes to your Daily Fantasy Sports NFL options. Today we look at the Panthers, Texans, Saints, Steelers.
Carolina Panthers -
Pros: Solid starting quarterback in Cam Newton
Cons: Not a threat against running backs.
Houston Texans -
Pros: Solid against tight ends. Solid against running backs. Pass defense ranks eighth in Football Outsiders’ DVOA against the pass in the past 17 weeks of regular season football.
Cons: Ryan Mallett is not considered among the better quarterbacks in the league.
New Orleans Saints –
Cons: Very poor against top running backs over the past two years. The Saints ranked 30th in the NFL in DVOA against the top opposing WR last season. Allowed the sixth-most fantasy points to wideouts since the start of last year.
Pittsburgh Steelers –
Cons: One of the weakest pass defenses should have trouble against top quarterbacks.
