Chasing Defense: Week 13

This is a weekly column that looks at the best defenses to chase throughout each week of the season. The goal is to give you a few defenses that should be available in your league that will give you an advantage at the defensive position each week.

This Week:

Play of the Week:


Packers (v. TB): The Packers defense has been mediocre this season, but the Bucs just can’t get anything going on offense. I like this matchup in Green Bay.


Dolphins (v. Den): Trevor Siemien is back and the Dolphins get to host the Broncos. Their defense hasn’t been great, but the Broncos offense has been worse.

Bucs (@ GB): Brett Hundley came alive this past weekend but I am not betting on that happening again. The Packers have been great to saddle up with and play against prior to last week.

Revisiting Last Week:

Redskins (v. NYG): The Redskins worked out well for us this week as they only allowed 4 points, had an interception, and also had 4 sacks. That was good for about 13 fantasy points in your average league.

Pats (v. MIA): The Pats defense continues to dominate. The gave up 11 points, had 2 interceptions, 1 fumble recovery, and had 7 sacks. It was good for 18 fantasy points.


Pipe Dream: (Team we wish we picked up)

We hit it again this week with the Patriots as the best defensive pickup.

Running Total:

We got to put our money where our mouth is, so here is how we have done so far this season!

  • Week 1: Rams D vs. Colts= 27 points
  • Week 2: Ravens D vs. Browns= 16 Points
  • Week 3: Dolphins D vs. Jets= 4 Points
  • Week 4: Lions D @ Min= 11 points
  • Week 5: Bears D v. Min= 6 Points
  • Week 6: Skins D v. SF=  5 Points
  • Week 7: Cowboys D v. SF= 15 Points
  • Week 8: Browns D v. Min= 4 Points
  • Week 9: 49ers D v. Ari= 4 Points
  • Week 10: Pats D v. Den= 14 Points
  • Week 11: Chargers D v. BUF= 25 Points
  • Week 12: Redskins D v. NYG= 13 Points
  • Total = 144 Points
    Our 144 points total would make our “Chasing Defense” teams rank as the #2 defense in the league. We will look for that number to improve this week!
