Ten Worst Pass and Run Defenses: Fantasy Football Finals

Just as I did with the best defenses, I am providing both worst defenses list in order to give those teams playing for a fantasy football championship the chances to digest the info and make the best decisions. This also allows for the opportunity to ask questions and gather opinions.

Steve Slaton against the Oakland Raiders, Marshawn Lynch against the Denver Broncos and Matt Forte against the Green Bay Packers offer the three easiest match-up desicions for the fantasy football finals. Pierre Thomas against the Detroit Lions, Ryan Grant against the Chicago Bears and LaDainian Tomlinson against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the next three. Those six are followed-up by the unlikely starts of Sammie Morris, Cedric Benson, Tim Hightower and Maurice Morris.

To take advantage of passing match-ups, I like Peyton Manning against the Jacksonville Jaguars and Shaun Hill against St. Louis. The rest of the match-ups face 175-200 yard passers with a 0-2 TD possibilities against bad pass defenses. I can't see too many fantasy football finals starting any of those eight QBs.
