Sean Smith (Photo credit: Julio Cortez/AP) A dominant performance was on display; as the Kansas City Chiefs sacked the Oakland Raiders ten times in last Sunday’s win. The Chiefs, who have one of the better fantasy defenses, are playing the Houston Texans and are facing undrafted quarterback Case Keenum, a first time starter. Last Week the pedestrian St. Louis Rams defense scored a staggering 29 fantasy points against the Texans woeful offense. Kansas City will look to blitz the Houston quarterback and make Keenum move around the pocket. The Chief’s Fantasy Defense was highlighted in 2003 when specialist Donte Hall returned four Touchdowns on special teams. With another strong showing against Houston, Kansas City’s Defense/ Special teams appear to be returning to their glory days. If you’re looking for a Defense to pick up this week you should look at who the team is playing. I like the San Diego Chargers who are available in majority of leagues. They play the Jacksonville Jaguars who are ranked 32nd in total offense this season. The Chargers looked impressive against the Indianapolis Colts, as they only gave up nine points, to the high powered Andrew Luck led offense. With Blaine Gabbert inactive with a hamstring injury, the Jags will have to rely on Chad Henne to try and pull out any sort of win. The Chargers’ defense has allowed the second fewest yards in the NFL over the last three games among teams that have not had a bye. (San Diego Chargers – Mike Nowak) Dominate Defense of the Past: The 2000 Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens won the Super Bowl in 2000 over the New York Giants thanks to their amazing defense. The Ravens offense was nothing spectacular, as Quarterback Trent Dilfer had a modest 76.6 Quarterback rating. But the Ravens Defense helped many fantasy teams win their league. With a linebacking core led by Ray Lewis, the opposition averaged only 13 points. On December 24th 2000 the Ravens scored an impressive 36 fantasy points vs. the New York Jets.

After Thursday’s division win over the Cardinals,  Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman told reporters that they have the best secondary across the board in the NFL. “I think we’re the best in the game,” Sherman said via “We’ve got the best free safety in the game, probably the best left corner, best right corner — we don’t switch sides, so we...

Russell Wilson, the Seattle Seahawks very own little giant

  What if I told you that NFL gurus missed the boat when it comes to this quarterback. Undersized, unheralded, and stigmatized by the media’s belittling of Big Ten football, he was an afterthought in the 2012 NFL Draft. Overshadowed by a NFL-ready Stanford superstar and a flashy, dynamic QB from Baylor, this 5’11” signal caller showed a unique combination of readiness and...

Marshawn Lynch Gives SEA Bench the Bird From Huddle

If you thought you saw Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch give his bench the finger from the huddle, you saw right.  He indeed did after the play came in, much to his disliking.

Beast Mode and Russell Wilson Don’t Need an Offensive Line

Russell Wilson Twitter Page (@DangeRussWilson) In front of a raucous crowd in Arizona, that could be described as the 11 ½ man, the Seattle Seahawks dominated the Arizona Cardinals. Russell Wilson led the Seahawks to their best ever start despite playing behind a banged up offensive line. Even though there weren’t many holes to run through, Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch created...

Fueling Up With Russell Wilson

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was no stranger to “the grind.” He was a two-sport player throughout most of his college career, going from football season directly into baseball with

Marshawn Lynch did not like this play call.

Marshawn Lynch had just come off a big five-yard run where he had trucked the helmet off of the head of Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Darnell Dockett to get to the one-yard line, but Seattle Offensive Coordinator Darrell Bevell decided to go with a play-action pass on the next play.  Marshawn Lynch obviously wanted a touchdown as a reward for his efforts, and expressed his...
