Stream Los Angeles Chargers D/ST (at New York Jets)

Speaking of the New York Jets, they first have a Week 9 showdown against a Los Angeles Chargers defense that is coming off a standout effort on a national stage. Defensive coordinator Derrick Ansley had his LA boys rolling as the team gave up just 13 points on 295 yards to the Chicago Bears.

The performance served as the fourth time in the last five games that the Chargers logged multiple takeaways as well. That is worth noting considering New York quarterback Zach Wilson is no stranger to turning the ball over. The third-year pro has totaled 23 interceptions in 29 career NFL appearances.

A number of top-scoring Fantasy defenses are facing off against one another on Sunday, so adding a team like the Chargers (6.5% rostered in ESPN) as a one-week streamer is a sneaky strategy. LA's ceiling is sky high on Monday night as a strip sack or pick-six is well within the realm of possibilities.
