St. Louis Rams defense proves to be a lucrative fantasy option in Week 12

Christian Petersen

The Rams defense proved to be a great matchup play against the Cardinals in Week 12.

The St. Louis Rams defense was a popular choice for those fantasy owners who stream defenses because of the Week 12 opponent, the Arizona Cardinals.

The Rams' defense came through in a big way on Sunday, collecting four interceptions and two sacks on the afternoon. To add to the great performance, the Rams returned two of those interceptions for touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact: If you're a fantasy owner who plays matchups with team defenses each week, keep an eye on the Cardinals' list of opponents. Arizona's offensive line is in shambles and quarterback Ryan Lindley is an inexperienced turnover machine.

The Cardinals play against the Jets, Seahawks and Lions in the next three weeks.
