The San Francisco 49ers have been using their defense all year to win games, and along the way they have helped many fantasy football owners win games this year. They take the top spot in the early projections for defenses in Week 14. After the 49ers, you have a bunch of the usual suspects like the Ravens, the Bears and the Jets. Moving up the ranks with a high projection this week is the New England Patriots defense. The Pats have been hot over the last few weeks and face a very suspect Redskins offense.
Our partner, numberfire.com, has provided us with projections for 15 top-rated defenses in Week 14. 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.
