Detroit Lions, D/ST
The Lions’ defense has put up more than seven fantasy points (Yahoo! scoring) just once in their last six games, with zero or negative points in three of the other five. But it’s about as good as it gets for a matchup in Week 12.
The Washington Redskins have not scored more than 17 points since Week 2, with at least three sacks allowed in seven of those eight games. Over that same span, all but one defense (the Miami Dolphins) has posted at least eight fantasy points (Yahoo! scoring) against Washington.
Detroit is not a particularly good defense by any measure right now. But the matchup this week is too favorable to ignore, and fantasy owners seeking a streamer can do a lot worse.
