Defense/Special Teams DFS Breakdown: Week 15

Wondering which defenses have the best matchups each week in the NFL? We’ve got you covered with this weekly main slate DFS breakdown.

Week 15

The Bears (DK: $2,900, FanDuel: $3,700, FantasyDraft: $5,700) are back on the main slate, and they are back as a “criteria team” being six point home favorites against the Packers who have an implied team total of 19.25. The Packers can put some points on the board and only give up the 20th most points to opposing DSTs, but this Bears D put up 20 fantasy points against the high powered Rams last week. Chicago ranks fourth in Sacks, first in Interceptions, and fourth in Forced Fumbles on the season. To top it all off, they come in as the 5th most expensive option on DK and the 11th most expensive on FanDuel. I think they provide the most upside for the price of any of our criteria teams this week.
