Vegas Helps You Pick Fantasy Defenses For Week 15
There are only a few teams left in your Fantasy Football league, and as the Fantasy Playoffs wear on, owners will have to be a step or two ahead of their competition.
The good news is that you’re still alive and that you have few other owners to compete with on the waiver wire for defenses.
We’re here to help you get a leg up – even though you already proved yourself to be one of the best Fantasy owners in your league.
You might have the Broncos defense on your roster, who face a really tough matchup at Pittsburgh, or even the Rams, who also rank among the best Fantasy defenses in the league. But the Rams face a Buccaneers offense Thursday night that could give them some trouble.
We look at the upcoming matchups to find the lowest expected scoring games, and the games with the largest point spreads, indicating a defense that should dominate.
While a low-scoring game is usually indicative of an offense not producing, it also probably means the defense they’re facing will pick up plenty of turnovers and sacks.
This list is also helpful for those that have been knocked out of their Fantasy playoffs, since you can load up on some great Fantasy defenses for your FanDuel contests!
