The 50 Best Remaining Matchups in the Fantasy Football Season

A handful of NFL defenses have established themselves as generous contributors of points to fantasy owners’ lineups.

Whether it is via the run or the pass, some of these have proven to allow big days to the skill-position players of their opponents in the first three weeks.

A couple have even done it for both categories.

Those two defenses are the Cincinnati Bengals of the AFC North and the New Orleans Saints of the NFC South.

The other common names that will be seen in these 50 best remaining matchups as favorable defenses against the run are the Carolina Panthers, Atlanta Falcons and Indianapolis Colts.

Teams aside from the Bengals and Saints that will frequent this list as favorable passing defenses are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Kansas City Chiefs, Washington Redskins and Tennessee Titans.

The logic behind the organization of the list includes a defense’s inability to stop an offensive dimension, the focus of the opposing offense on that dimension and the week in which the two teams will collide.

Week 17 has been excluded.

Weeks 15 and 16 have special priority, as they’re the weeks during which many championships will be played. The immediately upcoming weeks (Weeks 4 and 5) also get added attention. The teams will be more similar to their current iterations during those weeks than they will be in Weeks 10 and 11, for example.

Read on to find out why each team makes the cut and to see the full list of the top 50 best remaining matchups for the 2012 NFL season.
