Fantasy Football Week 15 Defense Projections: Not The Same Steelers Defense

The fantasy playoffs are here and the pressure is on to get the right guys into your fantasy lineup. Who are good bets for Week 15?

Thursday Game: Jacksonville Jaguars @ Atlanta Falcons

Among the top fantasy defenses in 2011 were the usual suspects. Teams like the Baltimore Ravens, the New York Jets, and the Green Bay Packers. One team that didn't live up to pre-season billing was the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers had been on a run of great defensive football for fantasy purposes, and were the gold-standard. This year, they've dropped out of the top of the rankings, mainly because turnovers and sacks are down for the Steel Curtain.

Like kickers, many owners stick with one defense only, so there's not much roster juggling going on. But if you are playing the matchups week-to-week, or playing in a league with two defenses, we'll look at some projections for Week 15.

Our partner, numberfire.com, has provided us with projections for 15 top-rated defenses in Week 15. 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.

* Fantasy Points Projections are based on the Yahoo! and ESPN default scoring settings.
