So who can you depend on in Week 11 on defense? Our partner, numberfire.com, has provided us with projections for 15 top-rated defenses in Week 11. They determine their projections by feeding the stats and matchups into the computer, and the computer responds with its best estimate.
These projections are live and may change before Sunday's action. Come back over the next few days until game time to see where your players stand.
Without Pittsburgh playing, the Baltimore Ravens and the Green Bay Packers top the projections rankings. The New York Jets defense has an interesting matchup tonight (Thursday) as they take on the new-look Broncos. It's unlikely that Tim Tebow will test the Jets corners often, so it will be a battle between the Jets run defense and the Broncos dedication to the run with Tebow. The computer likes the Jets in this matchup and ranks their defense sixth.
