2012 Fantasy Football DEF Rankings – Week 11

Nov 13, 2012

With an exciting tenth week under our belts, here are the LestersLegends 2012 Week 11 fantasy football team defense rankings.
1. Houston Texans
The Texans rank second in total defense (281.6 yards allowed per game) and third in scoring defense (15.9 points allowed per game). The Jaguars rank last in both total offense (263.6 yards per game) and scoring offense 14.1 points per game).
2. Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons rank 20th in total defense (365.6), but sixth in scoring defense (19.3). The Cardinals rank 31st in both total offense (295.4) and scoring offense (16.0). They also allow more sacks (41) than anyone.
3. Chicago Bears
We know what the Bears can do with turnovers. Plus, the Niners are tied for second for sacks allowed (29). The Bears also rank fifth in total defense (307.3) and second in scoring defense (14.8).
4. Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals do not have a great defense, but they are taking on Kansas City. The Chiefs rank 18th in total offense (350) and 30th in scoring offense (16.2).
5. St. Louis Rams
The Rams rank 15th in total defense (342.8) and 19th in scoring defense (23.3). The Jets rank 30th in total offense (302.7) and 24th in scoring offense (19.4). They have combined for 16 points in their past to games.
6. Denver Broncos
The Broncos rank sixth in total defense (316.8) and 10th in scoring defense (21.0). The Chargers rank 22nd in total offense (334.6) and 17th in scoring offense (23.2).
7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Bucs are giving up a ton of yards, but are middle-of-the road in scoring defense (23.2). The Panthers rank 23rd in total offense (334.3) and 27th in scoring offense (18.1).
8. San Francisco 49ers
I am still bitter about the Niners costing me a win last week. They were brutal against the Rams. San Francisco still ranks third in total defense (292.1) and tops in scoring defense (14.1). The Bears will likely be without Jay Cutler. Plus, they allow a ton of sacks.
9. Dallas Cowboys
The Boys rank eighth in total defense (318.8) and 17th in scoring defense (22.7). Cleveland ranks 29th in total offense (312) and 26th in scoring offense (18.8).
10. New York Jets
The Jets are a middle-of-the road defense, but the Rams rank 24th in total offense (332.2) and 28th in scoring offense (17.9).
