Selecting which of your players to start in the right weeks will help you achieve success in the season. The Bruno Boys are here to help you with those crucial decisions, consider the tough matchups and warn you when your studs are facing defensive assignments that should temper your expectations. 

It’s playoff season now and we’re going to look to minimize the risk in our recommendations, while looking for big point potential, but still, staying in that range of the tougher decisions. Here are your Week 17 Fantasy Football Team Defenses to Start.

Houston Texans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars have been a punchline to a joke all season as a team with more bark than bite and the offense has taken an unimaginable step backward, given that there was nowhere to go but forward. They continue to find new lows as they use both Cody Kessler and Blake Bortles at quarterback and continue to struggle to score points. They’ve failed to score double-digit points five times, and failed to score at least 20 points in all but four games. Opposing defenses have run wild on this offensive line of late, as they’ve surrendered nearly 20 sacks in the last four games, and as a result, each of those four defenses have scored at least 10.0 fantasy points.
