Defense Outlook Week 15

The Los Angeles Rams (DEF1) have now scored 11.0-plus points in seven of their last 10 games. Over that span, they’ve had five games with at least four sacks. The Jets have allowed three sacks in three consecutive games. Furthermore, New York is the only offense in football to allow double-digits on a points per game basis to opposing D/STs this year (10.31 ppg). Since Week 12, the Rams defense has averaged a league-high 15.7 ppg.

Prior to their Week 7 bye, the Baltimore Ravens (DEF3) were fantasy’s highest-scoring unit, racking up 12.7 ppg. Since then, they’ve plummeted to DEF19, averaging just 5.7 ppg. The once-dominant defense has become a question mark as fantasy owners try to make a championship push. Luckily a matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars could help the Ravens D/ST get back to their productive ways. The Jags have allowed an average of 12.66 ppg over three of their last four games to opposing defenses.

The Washington Football Team (DEF12) is now first-place in the NFC East, mainly due to their dominance on the defensive side of the football. The WFT has scored 12.0-plus points in three of their last four games, averaging a league-high 13.3 ppg over that span. Over their last three games, they’ve scored three defensive TDs. That’s more than all but five other units have scored on the season. With that said, Washington’s recent tear includes snaps against the likes of Ryan Finley, Andy Dalton and Nick Mullens. This week, however, they get Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle has allowed 12.0-plus points to three of their last six opposing D/STs. Yet, in their other 10 contests this year they’ve surrendered an average of just 2.5 ppg to defenses.
