Team Defense Rankings-Week 15-Top 15 to Start in Fantasy Football


Team Defenses can make or break your week in some scoring systems so be sure your loaded up with a good one as you head into your all-important week 15 matchup. Don’t get bounced from the playoffs because your defense is lit-up. The best matchup play in my opinion is Lions who have a tasty matchup against the struggling (more like STRUGGLING) Arizona Cardinals offense. They’re available on many waiver wires and could be in for a big week.

Here’s the top 15 defenses for the coming week:

ZT JL
1 Denver Broncos at Bal 1.5 2 1
2 Seattle Seahawks at Buf 3.0 1 5
3 Chicago Bears GB 4.0 6 2
4 Pittsburgh Steelers at Dal 4.5 5 4
5 San Francisco 49ers at NE 5.0 7 3
6 Houston Texans Ind 6.0 4 8
7 Detroit Lions at Ari 8.5 3 14
8 Green Bay Packers at Chi 10.0 9 11
9 Miami Dolphins Jac 11.5 10 13
10 Minnesota Vikings at Stl 11.5 13 10
11 Atlanta Falcons NYG 13.0 11 15
New York Jets at Ten 13.0 20 6
13 New York Giants at Atl 13.5 20 7
14 Cincinnati Bengals at Phi 14.0 8 20
15 Baltimore Ravens Den 14.5 20 9

The two sets of  rankings featured this week were done by Jeffrey Littrell (JL) and myself (ZT). NR stands for not rated and counts as 20 toward the composite average. Follow his ranking, follow my ranking, or follow the composite, but whatever you do–good luck to you as you look to win this weekend.
