Rank Name Team Vs
Int Fum Sack Pts
1Packers,Green BayGBPMIN2131526922
Against a rookie quarterback that will be playing catch up, this unit will be one of the top fantasy producers this week. 
Tier Break
Philly gets a rookie quarterback who tossed a pick six to the struggling Steelers' defense last week. Expect a lot of pressure from the Eagles' pass rush and the potential for more than one defensive / special teams' scoring opportunities. 
They have a cupcake matchup vs. the Jets this week, are at home and had one of their better games against Vick back in week 8. 
449ers,San FranciscoSFOWAS2121422115
If the Bucs made RGIII look bad at home, what do you think San Francisco will do with the Redskins? Enjoy the show! 
Tier Break
If your league doesn't penalize too harshly for points allowed, Indianapolis is a strong play against a Jacksonville Jaguars offense that continues to hemorrhage sacks and turnovers. During the last month, the Colts yielded 39 points per game. They also averaged 1.0 sack and 1.67 takeaways per contest. Since Week 8, the Jaguars offense scored 17 points per outing, allowed 3.33 sacks per game and committed 2.33 turnovers per contest. 
6Rams,St. LouisSTLSDC1131725814
They are playing like many expected having 13 sacks in the last 3 games. Rivers is banged up and susceptible to pressure so keep 'em active this week. 
7Jets,New YorkNYJBUF1131822514
They are coming off their best performance of the season prior to the bye week and recorded their first turnovers since week 5. They forced zero turnovers and managed only 4 sacks when these teams met back in week 8 at the Meadowlands. 
Tier Break
This is a terrible spot for the Ravens defense. Despite losing Brandin Cooks to injury, we do not expect the Saints to lay two eggs in a row at home. Expect vintage Drew Brees on prime time. 
You'd be wise play Dallas this week as it's the season of giving and Eli will be nice enough to simply give defensive stats to the Cowboys. 
Tier Break
10Patriots,New EnglandNEPDET1121831612
They should be better at home this week as Stafford is usually good for a pick or two. Last week they managed only 1 interception and sack, but they continue to give up too many passing yards each week. 
Rank Name Team Vs
Int Fum Sack Pts
The Broncos have intercepted a lot of balls, which helps, but on the whole this defense has seldom benefited those who drafted and/or plucked it off the waiver wire. There isn't much to get excited about with regard to their remaining schedule, either. 
Not a lot expected from this unit. They aren't generating many sacks and up against a team that rarely turns the ball over, the potential for fantasy points is minimal. 
13Chiefs,Kansas CityKCCOAK0131429512
While not quite the dominant defense fantasy owners relished a year ago, K.C. has been adequate on that side of the ball and posted good numbers on occasion. Derek Carr and the turnover-prone Raiders have been lit up this past month. 
Tier Break
14Buccaneers,Tampa BayTBBCHI1122535810
Consider the Buccaneers team defense a weak play. Even though the Chicago Bears offense likely will cough up a couple of turnovers and maybe allow a sack or two, this unit won't be as generous as the Washington offense was last week. During the last month, Tampa Bay allowed an average of 18.8 points per game. The Buccaneers also notched 2.8 sacks and 1.5 takeaways per outing. In the same time frame, the Bears offense scored 19.33 points per game. Chicago also allowed 2.33 sacks and committed 2.33 turnovers per contest. 
Any positives that Washington gets on defense will simply be due to the mistakes made by San Fran. Don't expect the Redskins to really get at it this week. 
If Bobby Wagner is in fact back from injury it makes a huge difference. They desperately need him in the run defense. If he's back start 'em. If not, consider other possibilities with better matchups. 
The Texans are a solid starting option at home against a Cincinnati Bengals offense that has been mistake prone on occasion. During the last month, Houston allowed 18 points per game while compiling 2.67 sacks and 2.67 takeaways per outing. Since Week 8, the Bengals scored 22.5 points per game. They also yielded 1.8 sacks and 2.0 turnovers per contest. 
Tier Break
Even though the struggling Tennessee defense probably will rack up a couple of sacks and a turnover or two against a somewhat mistake prone Philadelphia Eagles offense, the Titans are still a weak overall play. Since Week 8, Tennessee allowed 26 points per game, amassed 3.67 sacks per contest and compiled one takeaway. In the last four weeks, the Eagles scored 27.5 points per game. They also allowed 2.0 sacks per contest and committed 2.8 turnovers per outing. 
Consider the Atlanta defense a weak play against a productive and reasonably efficient Cleveland Browns offense. During the last month, the Falcons yielded 18.67 points per game. They also logged 2.0 sacks and 2.0 takeaways per outing. In the same time frame, the Browns scored 19 points per game, allowed only 1.5 sacks per outing and committed just 1.3 turnovers per contest. 
An already banged up Browns defense lost Jabaal Sheard and Karlos Dansby as well last week. We like the matchup against the Falcons, but it's a road game and former part time players will be getting their feet wet in a full time role. Make them prove it before trusting them in your lineup. 
Rank Name Team Vs
Int Fum Sack Pts
21Chargers,San DiegoSDCSTL002162749
A measly pair of turnovers from this crew over their last five games, but unless you feel Shaun Hill is poised to give St. Louis above average quarterback play down the stretch, you're liking this matchup. 
They have been one of the top fantasy defenses the past few weeks but Denver is tough place to play and they will have their hands full with the leagues second ranked passing offense this week. 
They rank 3rd in rushing yards allowed and only 1 100 yard rushing game. Seattle is number one in rushing offense. Something's gotta give and it will be Seattle. Start 'em with confidence. 
If this were a home game, maybe, but despite drawing Ryan Mallett in just his second start this is not a very good start. The Bengals defense needs to show more than one strong performance before trusting them again. 
Tier Break
25Saints,New OrleansNOSBAL102243718
Consider the New Orleans defense a weak play against a solidly productive Baltimore Ravens offense that doesn't make many mistakes. During the last month, the Saints yielded 21.8 points per game, logged 3.3 sacks per contest and compiled 1.5 takeaways per outing. In the same time frame, the Ravens scored 22.67 points per game. They also allowed 2.0 sacks and committed 1.33 turnovers per contest. 
This unit will have their hands full with the high powered Patriots offense. Not a lot of fantasy production expected here this week. 
27Giants,New YorkNYGDAL111264098
Romo, Murray, Witten, Bryant, and Williams. Those are five really big reasons to have New York planted firmly on your bench. 
Has been a fantasy defense you want no part of, and against Jamaal Charles and Alex Smith? No thanks. 
Tier Break
The Packers offense may be the best in the business right now, not a lot expected from this unit this week. 
Consider Jacksonville a weak play versus a usually productive Indianapolis Colts offense that rarely makes mistakes. During the last month, Jacksonville allowed 30.33 points per game. The Jaguars also notched 2.0 sacks and 1.33 takeaways per outing. In the same time frame, the Colts scored 31.33 points per game. They also ceded only 1.33 sacks and 1.0 turnover per contest.
