Week 13 not only gives us three Football games on Thanksgiving Thursday, it also means we no longer have to worry about bye weeks. The Fantasy football regular season is coming to an end and you’ll need to start the right defensive players in your IDP leagues at every position this week.

The Tennessee Titans will again be the team who gives up the most fantasy points to the defensive end position. The Titans will take on the Colts giving Justin Houston top five honors in this week’s rankings. The other two teams are the New York Jets and Houston Texans who give up the most points to opposing defensive ends.

The New York Giants, Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers are the teams giving up the most fantasy production to the linebacker position while the Atlanta Falcons (again), Baltimore Ravens and Los Angeles Chargers make up the top-three most fantasy-friendly matchups for opposing safety’s.
