Place kicker

Blair Walsh, Minnesota Vikings vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Walsh has averaged 9.0 fantasy points, stemming from 2.33 field goal attempts and 2.67 point-after tries, per game. The Vikings' offense matches up fairly well with Pittsburgh's defense, at least enough to permit Walsh a few opps from downtown.

The Steelers have given up 2.67 field goal kicks and 1.67 extra points, on average. This isn't your father's Steelers' D, but they are still good enough to keep Walsh from booting more XPAs than FGAs.

Jay Feely, Arizona Cardinals at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Feely isn't exactly a hotspot for fantasy points among his kicking peers, but he has seen enough work to warrant consideration this week if you need a foot off the wire.

Tampa Bay provides a fine matchup for the veteran. They've allowed kickers to attempt 10 field goals through three games and average 1.33 touchdown cappers.

Defensive team

Kansas City Chiefs vs. New York Giants

KC has come on strong and was an amazing play for fantasy owners a week ago. Oftentimes loyalty doesn't get you very far in fantasy football, but we're looking at a situation in which you can go to the well more than once.

New York's offense has endured 11 sacks of Eli Manning. The Giants also have accounted for 13 giveaways through the start of this young season. You cannot ignore those numbers, especially with an unraveling franchise heading to a tough venue like Arrowhead Stadium.

Tennessee Titans vs. New York Jets

Mike Munchak's group has taken down the quarterback nine times through three outings. The Jets have given up the same number of sacks in this time. New York has a rookie quarterback learning the ropes, and occasionally he makes crucial mistakes.

The Titans have logged three total interceptions and two fumble recoveries on their way to 8.33 fantasy points per game in 2013.
