Do not expect too much in the way of defensive showcases in Sunday's Denver Broncos and New England Patriots game.
The latest numberFire projections have neither the Patriots' nor the Broncos' defense in the top 15 fantasy defenses for Week 15:
The Patriots defense, which has performed rather well in recent weeks, appears poised for a difficult weekend. The numberFire fantasy projections rate this matchup as 90.61% similar to the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts game of Week 7 in 2009 -- a game which the Patriots lost 34-35. Clearly, not a favorable comparison.
The numberFire projections only foresee 7.41 points for the Denver defense and special teams, 18th best among the Week 15 defense projections. Most fantasy owners, to say the least, should be able to find a better alternative to these two units.
