Last week Philip Nelson threw two interceptions and no touchdowns and now has zero touchdowns and three interceptions in his two starts. The Defenders shut Jordan Ta’amu down last week at home, scoring 13 DK points. They now get Nelson on the road, which should be a good matchup.
The Roughnecks had their first game without an interception last week and had some trouble with the Dragons, but they did have four sacks and a fumble recovery. This week they take on a New York team that is last in total points scored and second in total yards.
The LA Wildcats gave up a ton of points last week to the Vipers but they also secured three turnovers and returned one for a touchdown. Josh Johnson should be able to throw on Seattle this week and get B.J. Daniels into pass mode, where he doesn’t excel.
The Defenders didn’t have much offensive output under Tyree Jackson, as he threw for just 39 yards. They went to the run instead, but if Dallas can get anything going against them, Jackson will be forced to throw more than the team would like.
