Week 15 is one interesting week in regards to the defensive fantasy match-ups.
Analysis: The Baltimore defense is struggling at the moment and it may get even worse when Denver visits this coming week. Denver is averaging 28.8 points per game which is third best in the NFL. Peyton Manning is on fire and Denver is riding an eight game winning streak. Baltimore on the other hand did just give up 31 points to Washington and 23 to Charlie Batch and the Steelers.
An interesting alternative to starting the Ravens’ D is the Titans. The Titans have the train wreck that is the New York Jets this week. The Jets are 26th in points per game, 29th in passing yards and are 30th with 26 giveaways on the year.
Another solid option is the Detroit defense. The Lions have Arizona in week 15 and if they haven’t mentally checked out it could be a big fantasy day. The Cardinals are on a nine game losing streak and have scored a total of 6 points over their last two games. Both the Titans and Lions are worth checking out since teams like Baltimore and Atlanta(vs. NYG) are playing such tough opponents.
