Last week was a good one for D/ST’s as 13 topped double-digit fantasy points. The most giving teams were the Raiders, Vikings, Cowboys, Rams, 49ers and Lions, who all allowed the opposing defense to rack up 15 or more fantasy points, as they all scored one or more touchdowns to boost them up.
It’s difficult to rely on defensive touchdowns, so we can’t chase those numbers, but we can continue to target poor quarterbacks and offensive lines.
The Bucs and Panthers are on bye in Week 13.
Seattle Seahawks vs. Giants
The Seahawks defense has stepped up of late and are starting to get to the quarterback more often. That should come in handy against Colt McCoy this week, who, like most backup quarterbacks, has trouble with pressure. He’s weak armed and slow-footed and behind a sub-par offensive line. Fire up the Seahawks again this week.
Green Bay Packers vs. Eagles
Carson Wentz just went into Seattle and put up the worst quarterback stats of anyone they’ve faced all season. The Seahawks also sacked him five times and picked him off for his league leading 15th interception. The Packers defense isn’t special, but against the Eagles, any defense can look competent.
