The Redskins’ defense led the way in scoring this week for fantasy defenses. Their 4 turnovers, 6 sacks, and a kickoff return for a touchdown all added to their points as well as holding the Lions to 16 points. Throughout the season, they have been among the worst, so it was surprising to see this turnaround. Moving into next week, I will be going through my waiver wire adds at defense. Are the Redskins a viable defense now? Here are my Week 13 defense waiver wire pickups. All of my selections are owned in under 60% of leagues.

|New York Giants
|Los Angeles Chargers
New York Jets
Opponent: Cincinnati Bengals
Own %: 23.7
Surprisingly or not, the Jets have been one of the top fantasy defenses this year. Over the past three weeks, they have scored among the top each week. Last week, they held the Raiders to 3 total points while creating two turnovers, a touchdown, and a sack. This week, they travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals. The Bengals have scored the second-least amount of points per game with 14.3. Last week, the Bengals scored just 10 points while turning the ball over twice. The Jets have the opportunity to score big defensively.
Opponent: Miami Dolphins
Own %: 36.8
The Eagles have had a tough go at it the last couple of weeks with games against the Patriots and the Seahawks. Against the Patriots, they allowed just 17 points to a volatile offense while limiting them to 305 yards of total offense. Against the Seahawks, they also allowed just 17 points but also added 2 turnovers and 6 sacks. Russell Wilson had just 200 yards against them, but they did allow Rashaad Penny to run for 129 yards. The Dolphins don’t have an effective run game, so the Eagles are in luck. With the momentum the defense has, they should role passed the Dolphins.
Opponent: Washington Redskins
Own %: 37.3
The Panthers started out as one of the hottest defenses in the league to start the season. Ever since their bye week in Week 7, they have severely regressed. Why would you want to start them this week? They play the Redskins this week. They are starting Dwayne Haskins who is not NFL ready. Even against the Lions, who have one of the worst pass coverages, he threw for under 200 yards without a touchdown and an interception. The run game is no different. This is a game for the Panthers to get back on the right track heading into the end of the season.
Green Bay Packers
Opponent: New York Giants
Own %: 20.5
The Packers have had a rough stretch of games recently. They started the season looking like a top defense but have taken a huge hit after Week 3. Since then, they have only held one team to under 20 points. I would pick up the Packers now because they have a great matchup for the next three weeks. This week, they play the Giants who are the ninth-worst scoring offense. The next week, they play the Redskins who are the worst. After that is the Bears who are the fifth-worst. Pick them up now before it’s too late.
Opponent: Buffalo Bills
Own %: 40.4
The ownership of the Cowboys significantly dropped this week due to their matchup against the Patriots this week but despite that, they played well. They allowed just 13 points and managed two sacks. For the next two weeks, the Cowboys have good matchups against the Bills and the Bears. Both teams rank in the bottom half of scoring. The Bills were successful in running the ball against the Broncos last week, so the Cowboys will need to toughen up on that front. Their success against poor offenses earlier in the season points towards a nice defensive game this week.
Los Angeles Chargers
Opponent: Denver Broncos
Own %: 33.1
The Chargers are coming off their bye week which is why their ownership is low. Their consistency has made them a nice defense every week. They have averaged 19.8 points per game against them with very little variation. The last time the Chargers played the Broncos they had two turnovers, three sacks, and a punt return touchdown. The Broncos were held to 3 points last week and didn’t look good. Their morale will be low entering the game which can be exploited by the Chargers this coming week.
