Arizona Cardinals:
  • Against opposing QBs: 202.3 YPG, 2.0 TDPG, 2.0 INTPG, 19.08 FPG (16th-fewest)
  • Against opposing RBs: 107.0 rush YPG, 0.5 rush TDPG, 3.5 receptions PG, 27.0 receiving YPG, 0.0 receiving TDPG, 16.4 FPG (11th-fewest)
  • Against opposing WRs: 11.3 RPG, 129.5 YPG, 1.8 TDPG, 24.63 FPG (10th-most)
  • Against opposing TEs: 2.3 RPG, 45.8 YPG, 0.3 TDPG, 6.08 FPG (9th-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: Over the last five weeks the Cardinals are giving up the 16th-fewest fantasy points to QBs. After allowing a league-low 14.5 completions per game coming in to Week Eleven the Cardinals let up a season-high 28 completions to Atlanta last week. While they didn’t allow a TD pass to the Falcons, note that they had given up 7 passing TDs in their last previous 2 (SF, GB). Also note that their 5 INTs against Falcon QB Matt Ryan skews their INTPG considerably. Against RBs, they’re giving up the 11th-fewest points. Minnesota RB Adrian Peterson had a big day against them in Week Seven, but they’ve been solid in their last three. Against WRs, they’re giving up the 10th-most points. They let up 17/208/0 last week making it three games in a row where they’ve allowed 20+ fantasy points to WRs. Against TEs they’re giving up the 12th-fewest points. They’re allowing the fewest TE catches per game, but Green Bay TE Tom Crabtree’s 72-yard TD in Week Nine which skews their ranking a bit.

Atlanta Falcons:
  • Against opposing QBs: 220.0 YPG, 1.3 TDPG, 0.3 INTPG, 17.03 FPG (9th-fewest)
  • Against opposing RBs: 100.3 rush YPG, 0.8 rush TDPG, 3.8 receptions PG, 34.5 receiving YPG, 0.3 receiving TDPG, 19.48 FPG (8th-most)
  • Against opposing WRs: 11.5 RPG, 128.3 YPG, 0.5 TDPG, 15.83 FPG (3rd-fewest)
  • Against opposing TEs: 4.3 RPG, 57.3 YPG, 0.5 TDPG, 8.73 FPG (10th-most)
Inside the Numbers: Over the last five weeks the Atlanta defense is giving up the 9th-fewest fantasy points to QBs. Saint QB Drew Brees got them for 3 TDs in Week Ten, but they’ve allowed multiple TD passes in a game just twice all year. Arizona QBs threw for a pathetic 70 yards against them in Week Eleven, so that skews their yards allowed average significantly. They’re giving up the 8th-most points to RBs, allowing at least 140 total yards, a score or both to RBs in each of their last seven games. Saint RB Chris Ivory and Cardinal RB LaRod Stephens-Howling made them look pretty bad the last two weeks. They’re giving up the 3rd-fewest fantasy points to WRs. They have been consistently solid in this area, never letting up more than 16 receptions or 1 WR TD in a game all year and Cardinal wideouts managed just 9/64/0 against them last week. They’re giving up the 10th-most points to TEs, thanks to Saint TE Jimmy Graham‘s 7/146/2 stat line against them in Week Ten. Cardinal TEs didn’t catch a pass against them last week.

Baltimore Ravens:
  • Against opposing QBs: 250.3 YPG, 1.0 TDPG, 1.0 INTPG, 19.03 FPG (15th-fewest)
  • Against opposing RBs: 113.5 rush YPG, 0.5 rush TDPG, 5.3 receptions PG, 35.5 receiving YPG, 0.0 receiving TDPG, 17.9 FPG (15th-most)
  • Against opposing WRs: 11.3 RPG, 159.5 YPG, 0.8 TDPG, 20.53 FPG (14th-fewest)
  • Against opposing TEs: 6.0 RPG, 55.3 YPG, 0.3 TDPG, 7.18 FPG (16th-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: The Ravens are giving up the 15th-fewest fantasy points to QBs over the last five weeks. Remarkably they have let up just 8 passing TDs in 10 games this year. Steeler backup QB Byron Leftwich (of all people) ran in a TD against them last week which skews the FPG number a little. They’re giving up the 15th-most fantasy points to RBs. To their credit they have not allowed a RB TD in the last three weeks but before that they had given up over 230 total yards to both Kansas City and Dallas RBs and 185 total yards and 2 TDs to Houston’s in their previous three games. Against WRs, they are giving up the 14th-fewest fantasy points. Raider WRs hit for 14/233/2 against them in Week Ten, but they have been solid against WRs most weeks. They’re allowing the 16th-fewest points to TEs as they’ve only let up one TE TD all season.
 
Next Opponent: @ San Diego Chargers
 
Buffalo Bills:
  • Against opposing QBs: 212.8 YPG, 1.5 TDPG, 0.5 INTPG, 16.73 FPG (7th-fewest)
  • Against opposing RBs: 123.0 rush YPG, 1.8 rush TDPG, 2.0 receptions PG, 18.8 receiving YPG, 0.3 receiving TDPG, 26.18 FPG (1st-most)
  • Against opposing WRs: 13.5 RPG, 140.3 YPG, 0.5 TDPG, 16.95 FPG (5th-fewest)
  • Against opposing TEs: 4.0 RPG, 53.8 YPG, 0.8 TDPG, 9.88 FPG (5th-most)
Inside the Numbers: The Buffalo defense is (all of a sudden) giving up the 7th-fewest fantasy points to opposing QBs over the last five weeks. After a horrible start the season that saw them give up three 3-TD games in their first five games, they’ve been much better lately, allowing more than 20 fantasy points to QBs only once in their last five. They’re allowing the most points to RBs. While they’ve been weak against RBs all year, they were able to keep Miami RBs to just 65 total yards in Week Eleven. It’s interesting to note that even though Patriot RB Danny Woodhead scored against them on a pass play a couple of weeks ago, they’re generally not letting up production to RBs in the passing game, giving up two or fewer RB receptions in five of their last six. They’re giving up the 5th-fewest fantasy points to WRs and they haven’t allowed more than 150 WR yards since Week Five. They’re letting up the 5th-most points to TEs mostly because Patriot TEs went for 9/122/2 against them in Week Ten.

Carolina Panthers:
  • Against opposing QBs: 235.4 YPG, 1.2 TDPG, 0.6 INTPG, 18.56 FPG (14th-fewest)
  • Against opposing RBs: 86.4 rush YPG, 0.6 rush TDPG, 5.6 receptions PG, 37.2 receiving YPG, 0.0 receiving TDPG, 15.96 FPG (10th-fewest)
  • Against opposing WRs: 13.4 RPG, 155.6 YPG, 0.6 TDPG, 19.42 FPG (11th-fewest)
  • Against opposing TEs: 4.6 RPG, 42.6 YPG, 0.6 TDPG, 7.86 FPG (16th-most)
Inside the Numbers: The Panther defense over the last five weeks is giving up the 14th-fewest fantasy points to QBs. Tampa Bay QB Josh Freeman threw for 3 TDs against them in Week Eleven, only the second multiple-passing-TD game they’ve allowed this year and that includes games against New Orleans, Washington and Denver, so it’s not like they haven’t played against any good fantasy QBs. They’re giving up the 10th-fewest fantasy points to RBs and in Week Eleven allowed their first 100-yard rushing performance since Week Four. They’ve let up multiple RB TDs in a game just once all year (NYG, Week Three). Against WRs they’re giving up the 11th-fewest fantasy points. They haven’t allowed a multiple-TD game since Week Four and only one team has managed more than 150 yards against them since then (Denver, Week Ten). They’re giving up the 16th-most points to TEs. No TEs have topped 75 yards against them all year but Tampa Bay TEs did post 8/61/2 last week. Bottom line, this has been a stingy defense.
 
Next Opponent: @ Philadelphia Eagles
 
Chicago Bears:
  • Against opposing QBs: 221.4 YPG, 1.0 TDPG, 1.2 INTPG, 16.84 FPG (8th-fewest)
  • Against opposing RBs: 107.8 rush YPG, 0.4 rush TDPG, 4.8 receptions PG, 22.2 receiving YPG, 0.2 receiving TDPG, 16.6 FPG (12th-fewest)
  • Against opposing WRs: 9.6 RPG, 150.4 YPG, 0.6 TDPG, 18.64 FPG (10th-fewest)
  • Against opposing TEs: 5.2 RPG, 48.8 YPG, 0.2 TDPG, 6.08 FPG (8th-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: The Bear defense is allowing the 8th-fewest fantasy points to QBs over the last five weeks. After keeping their previous 5 opponents to fewer than 20 fantasy points, 49er QB Colin Kaepernick posted 21.4 against them last week in his first NFL start. It marked just the second time all year the Bears have allowed multiple TD passes in a game and it was the only game all year in which they didn’t force an interception. They are giving up the 12th-fewest points to RBs. They hadn’t allowed more than 85 rushing yards in a game all year until Titan RB Chris Johnson busted off an 80-yard TD against them in Week Nine garbage time. Since then, both the Texans and 49ers topped 100 yards against them as well. They’re giving up the 10th-fewest fantasy points to WRs allowing no more than 1 TD in any game so far, although their yardage numbers are skewed a little by Texan WRs paltry 6/65/0 stat line against them in the wind and rain in Week Ten. Against TEs the Bears are giving up the 8th-fewest fantasy points but 49er TEs posted 7/92/1 against them last week.
 
Next Opponent: vs. Minnesota Vikings
 
Cincinnati Bengals:
  • Against opposing QBs: 243.0 YPG, 1.0 TDPG, 1.3 INTPG, 16.28 FPG (6th-fewest)
  • Against opposing RBs: 113.0 rush YPG, 0.5 rush TDPG, 4.8 receptions PG, 25.3 receiving YPG, 0.0 receiving TDPG, 16.83 FPG (14th-fewest)
  • Against opposing WRs: 14.8 RPG, 161.3 YPG, 0.5 TDPG, 19.63 FPG (12th-fewest)
  • Against opposing TEs: 5.5 RPG, 56.5 YPG, 0.5 TDPG, 8.65 FPG (12th-most)
Inside the Numbers: The Bengal defense is allowing the 6th-fewest fantasy points to QBs over the last five weeks. They’ve given up fewer than 20 fantasy points to QBs in six of their last seven with only Denver QB Peyton Manning posting big numbers against them. They completely shut down the Giant and Chief passing games over the last two weeks. They’re giving up the 14th-fewest points to RBs. Their ranking has been a bit worse than that for most of the year, but they held Bronco RBs to just 86 total yards with no TDs in Week Nine which skews the data a little. Against WRs they’re giving up the 12th-fewest points. They haven’t exactly been a prohibitive matchup for WRs, but they have kept opposing receivers out of the end zone in three of their last four games. They’re allowing the 12th-most fantasy points to TEs, but they haven’t let up any truly big games.
 
Next Opponent: vs. Oakland Raiders
 
Cleveland Browns:
  • Against opposing QBs: 201.5 YPG, 0.5 TDPG, 0.0 INTPG, 15.75 FPG (4th-fewest)
  • Against opposing RBs: 111.0 rush YPG, 0.8 rush TDPG, 4.3 receptions PG, 35.0 receiving YPG, 0.0 receiving TDPG, 19.10 FPG (10th-most)
  • Against opposing WRs: 12.0 RPG, 132.0 YPG, 0.5 TDPG, 16.05 FPG (4th-fewest)
  • Against opposing TEs: 4.5 RPG, 36.5 YPG, 0.0 TDPG, 3.65 FPG (4th-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: The Browns are allowing the 4th-fewest fantasy points to QBs over the last five weeks. They’ve been surprisingly tough to pass on lately, holding QBs to fewer than 200 yards in three of their last four. The Cowboys threw for 313 yards against them last week, but it took them 50 attempts to do it. It’s generally been easier to run than pass against the Browns. They’re allowing the 10th-most points to RBs, giving up 3 TDs to RBs over the last two weeks. They’re giving up the 4th-fewest points to WRs. Dallas WRs went off for 23/241/1 against them last week, but they kept each of their previous three opponents fewer than 17 points (Ind, SD, and Bal). The Browns are letting up the 4th-fewest points to TEs allowing just 2 TE TDs all year and none over the last five weeks.
 
Next Opponent: vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
 
Dallas Cowboys:
  • Against opposing QBs: 253.2 YPG, 1.0 TDPG, 0.6 INTPG, 18.3 FPG (12th-fewest)
  • Against opposing RBs: 91.6 rush YPG, 0.8 rush TDPG, 4.2 receptions PG, 27.4 receiving YPG, 0.0 receiving TDPG, 16.7 FPG (13th-fewest)
  • Against opposing WRs: 12.6 RPG, 183.2 YPG, 0.6 TDPG, 22.08 FPG (16th-most)
  • Against opposing TEs: 4.8 RPG, 41.2 YPG, 0.4 TDPG, 6.52 FPG (11th-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: The Cowboys are allowing the 12th-fewest fantasy points to QBs over the last five weeks. After allowing no passing TDs to the Giants and Falcons in Weeks Eight and Nine respectively, they have let up multiple TDs in each of the last two weeks (Phi, Cle). Note that they’ve allowed only one 300-yard passer all year (Falcon QB Matt Ryan, Week Nine). They’re giving up the 13th-fewest points to RBs. Backs have found the end zone against them in seven of their 10 games and while Brown RBs were very active against them in Week Eleven (39 touches, 168 yards), they didn’t allow a score. The Panthers’ 59-yard outing against them in Week Seven skews their ranking a little. They’re allowing the 16th-most points to WRs. After letting up back-to-back 200+ yard games to Atlanta and Philadelphia they limited Cleveland WRs to just 9/112/0 last week which is more indicative of how they’ve played this year. Against TEs, they’re giving up the 11th-fewest fantasy points even though Brown TE Ben Watson scored twice against them in Week Eleven.
 
Next Opponent: vs. Washington Redskins
 
Denver Broncos:
  • Against opposing QBs: 252.8 YPG, 1.8 TDPG, 1.5 INTPG, 20.28 FPG (12th-most)
  • Against opposing RBs: 54.0 rush YPG, 0.3 rush TDPG, 6.5 receptions PG, 47.3 receiving YPG, 0.3 receiving TDPG, 13.13 FPG (3rd-fewest)
  • Against opposing WRs: 10.0 RPG, 123.8 YPG, 0.8 TDPG, 17.03 FPG (6th-fewest)
  • Against opposing TEs: 6.8 RPG, 81.8 YPG, 0.8 TDPG, 12.68 FPG (2nd-most)
Inside the Numbers: The Denver defense over the last five weeks is giving up the 12th-most fantasy points to QBs. They’ve been very consistent letting up between 18.9 and 21.0 fantasy points each week against some very good QBs in their last six games (NE, SD, NO, Cin, Car, SD again). It’s noteworthy that they still have not allowed a 300-yard passing game. They’re letting up the 3rd-fewest points to RBs and a league-low 54 rushing yards per game. They’ve been really solid letting up fewer than 18 fantasy points in each of their last 5 games. Note that they’ve let up more than 20 fantasy points to RBs just once all year (NE, Week Five). Against WRs, they’re giving up the 6th-fewest points. They’ve been pretty up and down allowing 8.8 (NO), 24.1 (Cin), 5.9 (Car) and 29.3 (SD) fantasy points over their last 4. After allowing just 1 WR TD in their previous 4 games combined they let up 2 to San Diego WR Danario Alexander in Week Eleven. They’ve allowed multiple WR TDs in a game just twice all year. They’re letting up the 2nd-most fantasy points to TEs but they limited Charger TEs to 5/42/0 last week.
 
Next Opponent: @ Kansas City Chiefs
 
Detroit Lions:
  • Against opposing QBs: 212.6 YPG, 1.8 TDPG, 0.8 INTPG, 19.24 FPG (15th-most)
  • Against opposing RBs: 111.4 rush YPG, 0.4 rush TDPG, 4.2 receptions PG, 19.6 receiving YPG, 0.0 receiving TDPG, 15.5 FPG (9th-fewest)
  • Against opposing WRs: 14.0 RPG, 149.2 YPG, 1.2 TDPG, 22.62 FPG (15th-most)
  • Against opposing TEs: 4.0 RPG, 46.8 YPG, 0.6 TDPG, 8.28 FPG (13th-most)
Inside the Numbers: Over the last five weeks, the Detroit defense is giving up the 15th-most points to opposing QBs. They’ve let up multiple TD passes in each of their last 4 games (Sea, Jac, Min, GB) although they’re usually stingy with yardage as opposing QBs have only topped 240 yards against them in two of their 10 games. They’re giving up the 9th-fewest points to RBs. They’ve been up and down with yardage (133, 172, 75, 196 and 79 in their last 5) but they’ve been consistently tough to score on allowing just 3 RB rushing TDs so far this year. Against WRs they’re giving up the 15th-most points. They’ve allowed at least 136 yards with at least 1 score to WRs in each of their last 6. While they’re steadily giving up production, they’ve allowed multiple-TDs in a game only once this year (Jac, Week Nine). Against TEs they’re allowing the 13th-most fantasy points. They’ve been letting up more production to TEs than usual lately allowing 8/75/1 to the Vikings and 3/66/1 to the
Packers.
 
Next Opponent: vs. Houston Texans
 
Green Bay Packers:
  • Against opposing QBs: 282.5 YPG, 1.0 TDPG, 1.0 INTPG, 18.43 FPG (13th-fewest)
  • Against opposing RBs: 75.5 rush YPG, 0.8 rush TDPG, 3.8 receptions PG, 32.3 receiving YPG, 0.0 receiving TDPG, 15.28 FPG (8th-fewest)
  • Against opposing WRs: 14.0 RPG, 214.5 YPG, 0.8 TDPG, 26.45 FPG (7th-most)
  • Against opposing TEs: 4.0 RPG, 35.5 YPG, 0.0 TDPG, 3.55 FPG (2nd-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: The Packers are giving up the 13th-fewest points to QBs over the last five weeks. They’ve kept their last five opposing QBs under 20 fantasy points (Hou, Stl, Jac, Ari, Det). They’re still giving up plenty of passing yards – in fact they haven’t let up fewer than 250 yards since Week Three - but they’ve been stingy with TDs. They are giving up the 8th fewest points to RBs over their last five and they remarkably haven’t allowed a 100-yard rushing game to RBs since Week Three. They’re allowing the 7th-most fantasy points to WRs as they’ve given up 200+ receiving yards in each of their last 4 games. Lion WRs only caught 8 balls against them last week but they went for 202 yards and a score. They’re letting up the 2nd-fewest points to TEs and although they haven’t given up a TE TD since Week Five they do give up catches and yards to teams that involve their TEs in the offense. New Orleans, Indianapolis, Houston, and Detroit TEs all caught at least 7 passes against them this year.

Houston Texans:
  • Against opposing QBs: 224.5 YPG, 1.3 TDPG, 1.0 INTPG, 18.08 FPG (11th-fewest)
  • Against opposing RBs: 65.0 rush YPG, 0.0 rush TDPG, 5.0 receptions PG, 22.3 receiving YPG, 0.0 receiving TDPG, 8.73 FPG (1st-fewest)
  • Against opposing WRs: 11.3 RPG, 165.8 YPG, 0.8 TDPG, 21.08 FPG (15th-fewest)
  • Against opposing TEs: 4.3 RPG, 36.5 YPG, 0.5 TDPG, 6.65 FPG (13th-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: The Houston defense is allowing the 11th-fewest fantasy points to QBs over the last five weeks. After three shutdown games in a row against QBs (Bal, Buf, Chi) they got lit up by Jacksonville QB Chad Henne (of all people) in Week Eleven. The Jags passed for 378/4 on only 18 completions. The Texans are still the worst matchup in the league for your RBs, as they are giving up the fewest points in the league. They still haven’t allowed a RB rushing TD this season and they have been very stingy with yards as well, keeping opposing backs to fewer than 100 total yards in four of their last five games. Note that Bill RBs caught 10 balls for 77 yards against them in Week Nine. They’re allowing the 15th-fewest points to WRs. After allowing less than 110 yards per game in Weeks Seven through Ten, they got absolutely torched by Jaguar WRs for 12/335/2 in Week Eleven. They’re giving up the 13th-fewest points to TEs. Jaguar TE Marcedes Lewis scored twice against them last week, but they had been very stingy in their previous three games.

Indianapolis Colts:
  • Against opposing QBs: 290.2 YPG, 1.6 TDPG, 0.4 INTPG, 21.56 FPG (10th-most)
  • Against opposing RBs: 64.0 rush YPG, 0.6 rush TDPG, 3.0 receptions PG, 33.0 receiving YPG, 0.2 receiving TDPG, 14.5 FPG (6th-fewest)
  • Against opposing WRs: 17.2 RPG, 202.8 YPG, 1.0 TDPG, 27.3 FPG (5th-most)
  • Against opposing TEs: 4.0 RPG, 56.2 YPG, 0.4 TDPG, 8.02 FPG (15th-most)
Inside the Numbers: Over the last five weeks, the Indianapolis defense is giving up the 10th-most fantasy points to QBs. After allowing just 1 TD pass in each of their previous three games (Ten, Mia, Jac) they let up 331/3 to Patriot QB Tom Brady last week. Against RBs, they’re giving up the 6th-fewest fantasy points. They haven’t allowed 100 yards rushing since Week Six (NYJ). They allowed only 1 rushing TD in Weeks Seven through Ten combined, but Patriot RBs ran for 2 scores late in garbage time against them in Week Eleven. The Colts are allowing the 5th-most fantasy points to WRs and are giving up a league-high 17.2 RPG. They have given up over 200 yards, multiple TDs, or both in five of their last seven games and they’ve held opposing wideouts to fewer than 20 fantasy points just twice all year. The Colts are giving up the 15th-most points to TEs. They’ve been pretty tough against TEs this season but Patriot TE Rob Gronkowski got them for 7/137/2 in Week Eleven. Each of those numbers represents a season-high against the Colts.

Jacksonville Jaguars:
  • Against opposing QBs: 304.6 YPG, 1.6 TDPG, 0.8 INTPG, 25.78 FPG (4th-most)
  • Against opposing RBs: 100.2 rush YPG, 0.8 rush TDPG, 5.0 receptions PG, 41.8 receiving YPG, 0.0 receiving TDPG, 19.0 FPG (13th-most)
  • Against opposing WRs: 15.0 RPG, 203.4 YPG, 1.0 TDPG, 26.94 FPG (6th-most)
  • Against opposing TEs: 6.2 RPG, 59.4 YPG, 0.6 TDPG, 9.54 FPG (7th-most)
Inside the Numbers: The Jaguars pass defense is allowing the 4th-most fantasy points to QBs over the last five games. They had been pretty good against the pass, limiting Packer QB Aaron Rodgers to just 186/2, Lion QB Matthew Stafford to 285/0 and Colt QB Andrew Luck to 227/0 in Weeks Eight, Nine and Ten respectively…and then they got their doors blown off by Texan QB Matt Schaub who totaled 527/5 in Week Eleven. Note that they’ve allowed three QB rushing TDs in their last five, which increases their FPG even more. Against RBs they’re allowing the 13th-most fantasy points. They’ve allowed 4 TDs over the last five weeks, all to Detroit in Week Nine. It marked the second time this year they’ve given up 40+ fantasy points to RBs. They’re giving up the 6th-most points to WRs as opposing wideouts have topped 20 fantasy points against them in every game but one all year. Texan WRs burned them for 22/347/2 last week. They’re giving up the 7th-most points to TEs. They hadn’t allowed a TE TD all year until Texan TEs posted a ridiculous 17/159/3 against them last week.
 
Next Opponent: vs. Tennessee Titans
 
Kansas City Chiefs:
  • Against opposing QBs: 204.0 YPG, 1.8 TDPG, 0.5 INTPG, 19.3 FPG (14th-most)
  • Against opposing RBs: 128.5 rush YPG, 0.3 rush TDPG, 4.3 receptions PG, 27.5 receiving YPG, 0.0 receiving TDPG, 17.1 FPG (15th-fewest)
  • Against opposing WRs: 7.8 RPG, 120.8 YPG, 1.5 TDPG, 21.18 FPG (16th-fewest)
  • Against opposing TEs: 4.5 RPG, 55.8 YPG, 0.3 TDPG, 7.08 FPG (14th-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: The Chiefs are giving up the 14th-most fantasy points to QBs over the last five weeks. They’ve allowed multiple QB TDs in eight of their 10 games but they generally don’t let up huge games. No QB has topped 230 yards against them since Week Six (TB). The Chiefs have let up 100-yard rushing games in six of their last seven, but they typically don’t give up many RB TDs. Against WRs they’re giving up the 16th-fewest fantasy points. It’s been the same story all year in that they don’t give up many catches (a league-low 7.8) but the TDs are always there (9 TDs in their last five games). Steeler WRs only went for 66 yards against them in Week Ten, which skews their YPG number a bit. They’re giving up the 14th-fewest fantasy points to TEs giving up just 1 TD in their last seven games and no TEs have topped 70 yards against them yet this year.

Miami Dolphins:
  • Against opposing QBs: 251.5 YPG, 0.3 TDPG, 0.3 INTPG, 19.1 FPG (16th-most)
  • Against opposing RBs: 105.5 rush YPG, 0.3 rush TDPG, 3.0 receptions PG, 31.3 receiving YPG, 0.0 receiving TDPG, 15.18 FPG (7th-fewest)
  • Against opposing WRs: 13.8 RPG, 169.0 YPG, 1.0 TDPG, 23.3 FPG (13th-most)
  • Against opposing TEs: 4.3 RPG, 51.3 YPG, 0.3 TDPG, 6.63 FPG (12th-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: The Dolphins are giving up the 16th-most fantasy points to QBs over the last five weeks. Colt QB Andrew Luck shredded them in Week Nine for 433 yards and 2 scores which skews their numbers a little. They held both Tennessee and Buffalo fewer than 170 yards passing in their last two games. They’re giving up the 7th-fewest points in the league to RBs although they have allowed back-to-back 100-yard games the last 2 weeks. That being said, they haven’t given up 20 fantasy points in a game to RBs since Week One and they’ve only allowed 1 rushing TD since Week One. They’re giving up the 13th most points to WRs. They’ve been pretty bad all year letting up at least 20 fantasy points to WRs for six straight games before settling down the last couple of weeks. They’ve given up an average of just 8.5/90/0.5 the last 2 weeks (Ten, Buf). They’re letting up the 12th-fewest points to TEs just allowing their first TE TD in Week Ten to Titan TE Jared Cook.

  • Against opposing TEs: 3.3 RPG, 43.3 YPG, 0.3 TDPG, 5.83 FPG (7th-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: The Viking defense is allowing the 7th-most fantasy points to QBs over the last five weeks. They’ve given up 3 QB TDs in four of their last five games (Was, TB, Sea, Det). The once stout Viking run defense is giving up the 3rd-most fantasy points to RBs. Arizona, Tampa Bay and Seattle RBs all earned over 22 fantasy points against them in Weeks Seven through Nine. They did a much better job in Week Ten holding Lion RBs to 98 total yards and no scores. WRs are averaging the 4th-most fantasy points in the league against them. They had a hard time with WR Calvin Johnson and the Lions in Week Ten giving up season highs in catches and yards. They’ve also allowed multiple TDs in each of the last two weeks. Against the TE, they’re giving up the 7th-fewest points, as they haven’t let up more than 60 yards since Week Four.

New England Patriots:
  • Against opposing QBs: 310.8 YPG, 1.5 TDPG, 1.8 INTPG, 22.45 FPG (9th-most)
  • Against opposing RBs: 116.3 rush YPG, 1.0 rush TDPG, 6.3 receptions PG, 43.3 receiving YPG, 0.0 receiving TDPG, 21.95 FPG (6th-most)
  • Against opposing WRs: 13.0 RPG, 190.3 YPG, 1.0 TDPG, 25.08 FPG (9th-most)
  • Against opposing TEs: 7.0 RPG, 77.3 YPG, 0.5 TDPG, 10.73 FPG (4th-most)
Inside the Numbers: Through the last five weeks the Patriots are giving up the 9th-most fantasy points to QBs. They just traded for veteran CB Aqib Talib to try and sure up their secondary and while he turned in a pick-6 last week they still gave up 334/2 to the Colts. Six of the last eight QBs who faced them have racked up over 300 yards, so this is still a great matchup for opposing QBs. They’re giving up the 6th-most points to RBs. They were gashed by Bill RBs in Week Ten for 246 total yards and 2 TDs, which skews their averages a bit, but they’ve been decent by the numbers against backs most weeks. Against WRs they’re allowing the 9th-most fantasy points. They’ve held opposing WRs under 20 fantasy points just once since Week Two and it looks like the 11/175/0 stat line they gave up to Jet WRs in Week Seven was an aberration. They’re giving up the 4th-most fantasy points to TEs as they’ve allowed at least 6 catches for at least 60 yards in every game since Week Six.

New Orleans Saints:

  • Against opposing TEs: 7.6 RPG, 82.0 YPG, 0.8 TDPG, 13.00 FPG (1st-most)
Inside the Numbers: The Saint defense is giving up the most fantasy points to QBs over the last five weeks. Opposing QBs have totaled at least 300 combined yards in every game this year but one (KC, Week Three) and have tallied multiple TDs in six of their last seven. The Saints hold the unique distinction of not only allowing the most passing yards but also the most rushing yards in the league. They’re giving up the 7th-most fantasy points to RBs. They’ve let up some huge games to RBs this year, but they managed to keep Falcon RBs to just 89 total yards in Week Ten, which actually brings down their averages a bit. It is worth noting that they haven’t given up a RB score since Week Eight. Against WRs they’re giving up the 2nd-most points in the league. After a stretch of four games in which they allowed at least 32 fantasy points to receivers, they have kept each of their last three opponents to fewer than 25 fantasy points (which still isn’t great – but it’s slightly better). They’re allowing the 2nd-most fantasy points to TEs mainly because they gave up 12/127/2 to Atlanta TEs in Week Ten.

  • Against opposing TEs: 8.8 RPG, 89.8 YPG, 0.5 TDPG, 11.98 FPG (3rd-most)
Inside the Numbers: The Giants are allowing the 3rd-most fantasy points to QBs over the last five weeks. During that span they’ve allowed some really big outings to Washington QB Robert Griffin III (258/2 and 9/89 rushing), Dallas QB Tony Romo (437/1) and Cincinnati QB Andy Dalton (199/4). They’re giving up the 4th-fewest fantasy points to RBs. Their yardage numbers are skewed downward as the Cowboys largely abandoned their running game against them in Week Eight (15 carries for 19 yards) but they’ve been solid against backs all year. They’re giving up the 3rd-most WR fantasy points as they’ve let up at least 22 points in each of their last five. WRs have found the end zone five times against them in the last two games. They’re giving up the 3rd-most TE points almost entirely because Cowboy TEs killed them for 21-181-1 in Week Eight although Bengal TE Jermaine Gresham did also score against them in their last game.

  • Against opposing TEs: 5.0 RPG, 49.0 YPG, 0.8 TDPG, 9.4 FPG (8th-most)
Inside the Numbers: The Jet defense is giving up the 10th-fewest fantasy points to QBs over the last five weeks. They’ve let up multiple TD passes in three of their last four games (NE, Sea, Stl) but they’ve also kept QBs to fewer than 200 yards in each of their last three (Mia, Sea, Stl). Note that they’ve yet to give up a 300-yard passing day this season. Against RBs they’re giving up the 16th most fantasy points. They’re giving up plenty of yards on the ground as they have all year (100+ yards in 8 of 10 games) but they haven’t been giving up as many TDs lately (two in the last five games). They’re letting up the 13th-fewest points to opposing WRs and after an amazing run of six consecutive weeks in which they didn’t let up a WR TD, Seattle WRs accounted for four of them in Week Ten (including a passing TD by WR Golden Tate) and Ram WRs got them for two more in Week Eleven. They’re allowing the 8th-most points to TEs giving up 11/132/2 to Patriot TEs in Week Seven, but otherwise allowing single-digit fantasy points over the last five weeks.

  • Against opposing TEs: 5.6 RPG, 57.8 YPG, 0.4 TDPG, 8.18 FPG (14th-most)
Inside the Numbers: The Raider defense is giving up the 8th-most points to opposing QBs over the last five weeks. After a decent stretch of four games in which they didn’t allow more than 23 fantasy points, Raven QB Joe Flacco beat them for 4 TDs in Week Ten and Saint QB Drew Brees got them for 3 TDs last week. They’re giving up the 4th most fantasy points to RBs. Tampa Bay RB Doug Martin exploded for 200+ yards and 4 TDs against them in Week Nine and Saint RBs topped 200 yards against them in Week Eleven, so they’ve been very shaky lately. Note that they’ve given up at least 5 RB receptions in every game since Week Two. Against WRs they’re giving up the 12th most fantasy points even though they’re allowing the 2nd fewest WR receptions. They’ve given up 2 WR TDs in each of their last 3 games (TB, Bal, NO).They’re allowing the 14th most points to TEs as they’ve given up TDs in each of their last two games.

  • Against opposing TEs: 5.0 RPG, 41.3 YPG, 0.5 TDPG, 7.13 FPG (15th-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: The Eagle defense is giving up the 6th-most fantasy points in the league to QBs over the last five weeks. They’ve allowed multiple TDs in every seven of their last eight games including a league-worst 11 TDs in their last 4 games. Note that they haven’t intercepted a pass since Week Six. They’re giving up the 11th most fantasy points to RBs but their numbers are actually skewed downward by Redskin RBs’ 79 yard rushing effort against them last week. Note that Redskin QB Robert Griffin III ran for 84 yards in that game which means they’ve let up over 100 yards rushing now in six straight games. Against WRs they’re giving up the 11th-most fantasy points in the league allowing at least 1 WR TD in every game since Week Five. They’re giving up the 15th-fewest fantasy points to TEs allowing 8 catches in both their Week Nine and Week Ten games (NO, Dal) but just 1 in Week Eleven (Was) although it did go for a TD.

  • Against opposing TEs: 3.2 RPG, 36.6 YPG, 0.0 TDPG, 3.66 FPG (5th-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: The Steelers defense remains a prohibitive matchup for your offensive players. They are giving up the fewest fantasy points to QBs over the last five weeks. They’ve haven’t allowed a 300-yard passer all season and they’ve kept their last five opponents to fewer than 200 yards (Cin, Was, NYG, KC, Bal). They also haven’t allowed a TD pass since Week Eight. They’re giving up the 2nd-fewest fantasy points to RBs. Chief RBs posted 33/130/1 against them in Week Ten, marking just the second time all year that the Steelers have allowed a 100-yard rushing day to RBs. They normally don’t allow anything in the passing game to backs, but Raven RBs managed 6/64/0 against them last week. They’re giving up the fewest fantasy points to WRs holding opposing wideouts to fewer than 90 yards with no TDs in each of their last three games (NYG, KC, Bal). Against TEs they’re allowing the 5th-fewest fantasy points and haven’t given up a TE TD since Week Five.

  • Against opposing TEs: 3.3 RPG, 30.5 YPG, 0.3 TDPG, 4.55 FPG (6th-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: The Chargers over the last five weeks are giving up the 5th-fewest fantasy points to QBs. After keeping the Browns and Chiefs under 200 yards passing with no scores, the Buccaneers got them for 210/2 in Week Ten and the Broncos got them for 270/3 last week. They’re letting up the 16th-fewest points to RBs. San Diego has generally been tough to run on most weeks and they’ve only allowed 2 RB TDs since Week Five. Against WRs they’re allowing the 9th fewest fantasy points. They were stingy against Cleveland, Kansas City and Tampa Bay WRs in Weeks Eight through Ten but Denver wideouts beat them for 3 TDs last week. Note that they generally don’t give up many WR receptions. Against TEs they’re allowing the 6th-fewest fantasy points. Denver TEs went for 8/81/0 against them last week marking just the second time they’ve given up more than 27 yards since Week Four.

  • Against opposing TEs: 3.0 RPG, 35.8 YPG, 0.0 TDPG, 3.58 FPG (3rd-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: Over the last five weeks the 49ers are giving up the 2nd-fewest fantasy points to QBs. They’ve kept opposing QBs to fewer than 200 yards in six of their last eight games. Arizona threw for 290 against them (on 52 attempts) in Week Eight and St. Louis threw for 275 against them in an overtime game in Week Ten. They’re giving up the 5th-fewest fantasy points to RBs. While they’re usually tough to run on they have allowed three games of 125+ rushing yards in their last 5 (NYG, Sea, Stl) but their Week Six game in which Arizona only ran for 6 yards skews their average down. They've still given up just 2 RB TDs on the season. They’re allowing the 8th-fewest points to WRs. They had only given up 2 WR TDs on the year before Ram wideouts got them for two in Week Ten on a whopping 20 receptions. Bear WR Brandon Marshall scored against them in Week Eleven in garbage time. Against TEs they’re giving up the 3rd-fewest fantasy points in the league and haven’t allowed a TD since Week Three.

  • Against opposing TEs: 4.8 RPG, 66.5 YPG, 0.5 TDPG, 9.65 FPG (6th-most)
Inside the Numbers: The Ram defense over the last five weeks is giving up the 5th-most fantasy points to QBs. The Packers and Patriots killed them for 29 and 32 fantasy points in Weeks Seven and Eight, respectively, and the 49er QBs put up 26 in Week Ten, thanks to 10/71/1 rushing. The Jets’ 177/1 stat line against them last week skews the averages down a bit. They’re allowing the 5th-most fantasy points to RBs. While they were strong against opposing backs earlier this year, they have now let up over 130 total yards in each of their last three games and 5 total RB TDs during that span. They’re giving up the 8th-most fantasy points to WRs, thanks mainly to their Week Seven game against Green Bay in which they were burned for 23/266/3. Against TEs, they’re giving up the 6th-most points basically because Patriot TE Rob Gronkowski destroyed them for 8/146/2 in Week Eight.

  • Against opposing TEs: 6.0 RPG, 64.4 YPG, 0.4 TDPG, 6.4 FPG (10th-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: Over the last five weeks the Seahawk defense is giving up the 3rd-fewest fantasy points to QBs. Detroit QB Matthew Stafford got them for 352/3 in Week Eight, but they have held each of their last two opponents to single-digit fantasy points (Min, NYJ). They’re letting up the 12th most fantasy points to RBs. They’ve allowed only two 100-yard rushing games all year, but they’ve both been during the last five weeks (SF, Min). RB Adrian Peterson scored 2 TDs against them in Week Nine, but those are the only RB TDs they’ve given up since Week Three. Over the last five weeks against WRs they’re giving up the 2nd-fewest fantasy points allowing 15/183/3 to Lion WRs in Week Eight but keeping the 49er, Viking and Jet receivers to single-digit receptions and fantasy points. They’re giving up the 10th fewest fantasy points to TEs. They have notably held opposing TEs to single-digit fantasy points in 8 of their 10 games.

Inside the Numbers: The Buccaneer defense is giving up the 2nd-most fantasy points to QBs over the last five weeks. They’ve let up 377/4 (NO), 251/1 (Min), 414/4 (Oak), 337/3 (SD) and 252/1 (Car) during that stretch. Against RBs they’re allowing the 9th-most points in the league. While they are giving up production, they don’t really let up any huge games. They’ve allowed just one 100-yard rushing game in their last five, but they do allow production to backs in the passing game.  Note that in Week Nine the Raiders completely abandoned the run and completed 17 passes to RBs for 151 yards and a score which skews their averages. They’re letting up the most points to WRs and they have given up over 200 WR yards in eight of their 10 games this year. Last week, Carolina WRs posted 11/166/1 for 22.6 fantasy points, the fewest the Bucs have let up since Week Six. Against TEs they’re giving up the 9th most fantasy points although they held Carolina TEs to just 2 catches last week.

  • Against opposing TEs: 2.5 RPG, 27.5 YPG, 0.0 TDPG, 2.75 FPG (1st-fewest)
Inside the Numbers: The Titan defense is giving up the 11th-most points in the league to QBs over the last five games. They had been consistently letting up between 21 and 26 fantasy points every game until they shut down the Dolphin passing game (217/0, 3 INTs) in Week Ten (10.9 pts). Against RBs they’re allowing the 2nd most fantasy points. Yards have been easy to come by for opposing backs and note that they’ve let up some big receiving numbers to backs including 7/131/0 to Pittsburgh in Week Six, 14/81/1 to Buffalo in Week Seven and 9/70/1 to Miami in Week Ten, so versatile backs usually don’t have trouble finding points against Tennessee. They’re giving up the 14th most fantasy points to WRs. Bear WR Brandon Marshall posted 3 TDs against them in Week Nine, the third time this year they’ve let up 30+ fantasy points to WRs so the potential is always there for big games by WRs. They are allowing the 1st fewest fantasy points to TEs. After being the worst team against TEs early in the season, they’ve kept their last five opponents out of the end zone (Pit, Buf, Ind, Chi, Mia) and have only let up 1 TE reception in their last 2 games.

  • Against opposing TEs: 5.5 RPG, 57.0 YPG, 0.5 TDPG, 8.7 FPG (11th-most)
Inside the Numbers: The Redskins are giving up the 13th-most fantasy points to QBs over the last five weeks including. After starting the year with seven straight games in which they allowed 300+ QB yards they’ve been much better in their last three games allowing an average of 209 passing yards. Against RBs they are allowing the 14th-most fantasy points. They’ve been decent all year not letting up any huge games. They’ve allowed only two 100-yard rushers and 1 multiple-TD performance in their first 10 games. Against WRs the Redskins are giving up the 7th-fewest points in the league. After giving up at least 200 yards and a TD in each of their first seven games they’re letting up just 9.0/123.3/0.3 in their last 3 (Pit, Car, Phi). They’re allowing the 11th most fantasy points to TEs as they usually give up a lot of TE catches (at least 5 in 8 of 10 games).
