Patriots D/ST records two picks in Week 17

The New England Patriots D/ST recorded two interceptions and three sacks in the team's 28-14 Week 17 win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact

It was a solid performance to close out the year by New England. They lost several key defensive contributors due to opt outs over the summer, but coach Bill Belichick was still able to scheme up some productive game plans throughout the season. The highlight was likely holding Justin Herbert scoreless in a 45-0 beatdown of the Chargers.

New England Patriots D/ST gets steam-rolled in Week 16

New England Patriots D/ST allowed 38 points while recording no sacks or turnovers in Week 16's shellacking by the Bills.

Fantasy Impact

New England looked lost on Monday night as they ran into the buzz saw that is Josh Allen. It's going to be hard to trust them in Week 17 against a Jets team that looks like it's playing with pride and is coming off back-to-back wins. If you're still playing fantasy games with meaning, you have to roll with a New England D/ST that's top-10 in scoring and hope for the best.

Patriots D/ST quiet in Week 15 loss

The New England Patriots D/ST recorded an interception and two sacks in the team's 22-12 Week 15 loss to the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Miami was able to run the ball at will against New England. The Patriots D/ST should be avoided in the fantasy finals when they take on the Bills on Monday Night Football.

Patriots D/ST doesn't do much in Week 14

The New England Patriots D/ST recorded just one sack in the team's 24-3 Week 14 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Impact

New England also recorded an interception, but this wasn't a good fantasy performance by any means. The unit will now travel to take on the Dolphins in Week 15. Odds are fantasy managers will have a better option to use.

Patriots D/ST has a huge day in Week 13 vs Chargers

The New England Patriots D/ST scored two touchdowns in the Patriots' 45-0 Week 13 win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact

New England also recored two interceptions, three sacks, and blocked a kick. The defense has held Kyler Murray and Justin Herbert to zero combined touchdowns over the past two weeks. This unit is absolutely rolling entering a Week 14 Thursday night game against the Rams.
