Week 1 had some interesting revelations in regards to defenses. The Baltimore Ravens defense completely embarrassed the Buffalo Bills, while the New Orleans Saints defense — oftentimes great in 2017 — got ripped to shreds by none other than Ryan Fitzpatrick. Even the Chicago Bears locked up the Green Bay Packers for a half. Those stunning performances might be why our Yahoo Fantasy Football experts — outside of the top two spots — have just a few moments of consensus in their Week 2 rankings for defenses. That said, the majority of our experts agree that the top two spots belong to the two Los Angeles teams, the Rams and Chargers.

They’re expected to be without Joey Bosa (foot) again, but fantasy owners of the Chargers defense have to be licking their lips.
