Here are your Week 12 Fantasy Football Team Defenses to Sit.
Denver Broncos vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Broncos are still a good, tough defense but whenever they’re facing a prolific offense with many playmakers they are caught at a disadvantage as they just don’t have enough in the secondary to withstand a high-powered offense. They didn’t have enough agains the Chiefs (twice) the Rams, and on Sunday, the Steelers. Pittsburgh’s 20 points last week were the least that they scored since Week 4. They’ve only been held under 24 points four times this year and the question is, do the Broncos have enough at offense to slow the game down so that the Steelers try to run the ball instead. We don’t think they’ll be able to do that for long, but if it becomes a day full of James Conner, then the Broncos have won. Chances are though, they use Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster, AND James Conner and then get a role player or two to step up. Denver’s good, they’re just not as good as they need to be to hang with Pittsburgh.
