With none of the top defensive units against a bad offense this week, picking a team defense is a little tricky. In fact, all three of our staff member’s rankings have a different number one which opened the door for the Niners to take the top spot despite not being any individual’s number one.
The Patriots also surged near the top of the rankings as they head to Miami to take on the Dolphins in an AFC East showdown. With all the divisional action expect hard-fought, tough-defended games but maybe not a ton of overall fantasy defense points. Here’s our top 15 headed into week 13:
|1||San Francisco 49ers||at Stl||2.3||2||2||3|
|2||New England Patriots||at Mia||3.7||4||1||6|
|3||Houston Texans||at Ten||4.0||1||4||7|
|7||Seattle Seahawks||at Chi||10.3||8||9||14|
|8||New York Giants||at Was||11.3||NR||3||11|
|10||Arizona Cardinals||at NYJ||12.3||15||NR||2|
|Pittsburgh Steelers||at Bal||12.3||NR||12||5|
|12||Green Bay Packers||Min||12.7||NR||5||13|
|13||Minnesota Vikings||at GB||13.0||NR||11||8|
|14||Cincinnati Bengals||at SD||13.7||11||10||NR|
|15||St. Louis Rams||SF||14.7||12||NR||12|
Our ranking team consists of the Fantasy CPR staff: Jeffrey Littrell (JL), Steve C0pps, and myself (ZT). NR stands for not rated and counts for 20 in the composite ranking average.
