Defensive Lineman

1. Joey Bosa – Los Angeles Chargers

Denver is a middle of the road team in terms of fantasy points allowed to defensive lineman, but have allowed 20 sacks on the year. Bosa is a strong candidate to finish DL1 on the week.

2. Aaron Donald – Los Angeles Rams

Aaron Donald continues to be a force amongst nature, and will take on a weaker Arizona offensive line.

3. Nick Bosa – San Francisco 49ers

This is going to be a major test for the 49ers defense, and this is an average matchup based on Baltimore ranking 18th in fantasy points allowed.

4. Cameron Hayward – Pittsburgh Steelers

Cameron Heyward ranks top ten in scoring among defensive lineman, and has 35 tackles on the year.

5. Calais Campbell – Jacksonville Jaguars

This is a great upside spot for Calais Campbell and the rest of the Jags front seven. The Buccaneers have allowed the 7th most fantasy points per game to opposing defensive lineman, with 25.5 sacks.

6. Danielle Hunter – Minnesota Vikings

This is a sneaky good spot as Seattle has allowed 16.6 sacks to defensive lineman, and not many better than Danielle Hunter at getting to the quarterback.

7. Arik Armstead – San Francisco 49ers

Now third in scoring among defensive lineman, he has 10 sacks, and is averaging 7.1 fantasy points per game.

8. Sam Hubbard – Cincinnati Bengals

Sam Hubbard can take advantage of a poor offensive line in new York, who have allowed 28.5 sacks to defensive lineman, and the second most fantasy points per game.

Darius Leonard has returned to his top form, and will get a friendly matchup against Tennessee. He has played just eight  games, but is averaging 11.5 per game.

2. Cory Littleton – Los Angeles Rams

Crry Littleton continues to move his way up the rankings in scoring this season after a slow start, he is a double-digit per game fantasy scorer on the year.

3. Jordan Hicks – Arizona Cardinals

4. Blake Martinez – Green Bay Packers

The Giants have allowed the 2nd most fantasy points per game to opposing linebackers this season, putting Blake Martinez in a strong spot.

5. Luke Keuchly – Carolina Panthers

6. Bobby Wagner – Seattle Seahawks

Bobby Wagner continues to be one of the better defensive fantasy assets, and has 94 fantasy points this season.

7. Devin Bush – Pittsburgh Steelers

Washington’s volume is always going to be an issue, but heavy defensive presence players like Reid and Keuchly are going to get theirs. Reid is currently 5th in defensive back scoring this season.

6. Shawn Williams – Cincinnati Bengals

Shawn Williams has averaged 7 fantasy points per game this season, and will see a Jets team airing it out quite a bit.

7. Eric Weddle – Los Angeles Rams
