Sneaky Sleeper Defenses: Week 2
Well that was fun! Week 1 flew by and the start to the 2013 NFL season is in the books. There were a lot of exciting games. 12 of the 16 were decided by 1 TD or less. However, you could definitely tell it was opening week as the penalties and turnovers mounted with each passing game. Of course, that is par for the course on opening day. Defenses are generally light years ahead of the offenses in the first week or two of a season. Last week was no exception. If you are like me, you don’t even bother with a defense at draft time. I take the team with the friendliest week 1 match-up. Yes, that’s right, I’m a streamer and proud of it! I enjoy the small victories and It’s a fun way to play. Even if you prefer to have one set in stone defense, you will still need a bye week fill-in. I know change can be extremely scary for some of you folks, but I will help you through it. Maybe I will even show you a match-up so tasty and so tantalizing that you will stray from your ways! Maybe that unlikely, but a guy can dream!
Even with the sloppy play of the opening week, there were some very exciting games. The fantasy points began to mount up, (unless of course you were a first or second round pick for one of my squads). There were 10 D/STs that scored double digit fantasy points. That certainly won some players their opening game. Four of our five week 1 sleepers finished with 7 points or more. That included the number one defense of the week, the Kansas City Chiefs. So with that, let’s take a look at the week 2 D/ST sleepers.
#5) New Orleans at Tampa Bay

#3) Cleveland at Baltimore
#2) Buffalo vs. Carolina
