The nation is obsessed with fantasy football. This is the time of year when fans are gearing up for their fantasy drafts, doing research on which players they should have. Arizona Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu has some advice for fans.
This question was posed to fans on Twitter.
All three defenses are among the best in football. The Broncos have the league’s best pass rusher and one of the best cornerbacks. Seattle is a top unit on a yearly basis. Houston was at the top of the league a year ago.
It would be hard to go wrong with any of the three.
However, Mathieu has a different suggestion.
And why not?
Arizona’s defense led the NFL in sacks and still have Chandler Jones and Markus Golden, while adding Haason Reddick and Robert Nkemdiche to the fold. With a healthy Mathieu, turnovers are bound to come. Patrick Peterson is one of the best at his position. Justin Bethel will have plenty of opportunities to make plays on the ball.
The truth is the Cardinals defense could be a very good one to start on your fantasy team, especially if they stay healthy. They had sacks. They were near the top in yardage allowed. They should get more turnovers and allow fewer points.
So keep that in mind when you are forming your fantasy team. The Honey Badger says start him and his teammates.
