You can also use this to help with fantasy football matchups if you are targeting a running back against a specific matchup. Everything is broken out by total, rushing, and passing stats allowed. You can also see how defenses are doing in the turnover and sack department while in the red zone.

Defense Redzone Stats

Defenses that can limit production have a big advantage and are often going to be in the top half of defensive rankings. Starting with the total red zone offense allowed, you will see the red zone numbers allowed as a whole. This will be overall touchdowns and total points. You can also see how many plays defenses are allowing inside their red zone, which can say a lot about a defense as the more they allow the worse. Red zone stats are going to be broken up by rushing and passing allowed. You can see how many rushing attempts are allowed, and the yards and touchdowns that come with it. The same goes for passing numbers allowed. These are all going to be telling for a defense and how they deal with the run and the pass while inside the red zone.

When defenses can force a turnover inside the red zone, it can change the tune of a game. The same goes for creating a sack to force them back. Under the turnovers forced, you can see how defenses do in this department. Combining these stats with the rest on this page, you can breakdown how good matchups are for specific players while in the red zone. Those defenses that do not allow a lot of volume and production are not going to be good matchups for opposing players. Some defenses might also be tough on the ground but are targetable through the air. You can also go to our team rankings to see where team defenses rank in red zone touchdowns allowed, as well as conversion rates.

Using Red Zone Defense Stats For Fantasy Football

When looking at matchups for your fantasy football team, red zone numbers are going to be something to take into consideration. You can get an overall look in the offense allowed area, where it is broken out by how many, touchdowns, points, and plays a defense gives up in the red zone. Unless a defense is allowing longer touchdown production, defenses that don’t allow a lot of plays in the red zone are usually the stronger defenses in the league. The same goes for points and touchdowns allowed. Because of the correlation with fantasy points and red zone volume, being able to dive into these stats is going to give you a leg up on your competition. Not many are willing to look at red zone numbers. If you are looking at a matchup and see a team has allowed 15 red zone touchdowns through ten weeks, the opposing running back for the upcoming game is going to be in a good spot to score.

Defenses are going to have their strengths and weaknesses, and that will be shown in the red zone. Allowing more rushing touchdowns and attempts in the red zone is going to point towards a potential strong matchup for your fantasy running game. Now if a defense isn't allowing a lot of attempts or touchdowns, then it might not be. The same can be said for passing numbers. However, if you are looking early in the year it is important to see why teams are allowing more or less red zone production. You can also use these numbers for your fantasy defense to figure out if they are a good play or not. If they are facing a very good run defense, and struggle against the run in the red zone, there might be a few extra scores on the board against them. The same can be said for a quarterback, as they might struggle against the pass in the red zone. Usually, these struggles go hand in hand with their defensive production in general, but some defenses can be built differently and struggle more in the red zone.

These numbers are to be used in addition to other defensive stats outside of the red zone. They are a piece of the puzzle. These stats are only within the last 20 yards of the field, so there is a lot more going on for a defense to allow. Some defenses are also going to be allowing longer touchdown and yardage numbers outside of the red zone, which is why their numbers might be a bit lower. It is important to understand the whole picture. Scheduling is also going to be important when viewing red zone numbers early in a season. If a defense faces three top ten offenses in the first five games, they might have some heightened numbers in comparison to the next five games where they face average to below-average offenses.

Can Bad Defenses Be Good In The Red Zone?

Sorting through red zone defensive stats you might notice a few teams that are not very good on the defensive side but have posted good red zone numbers. You might also see good defenses that struggle a bit in the red zone. There is a method to the madness here as you will see teams emphasize being good in the red zone. Bill Belichick has always had a strong defensive mind, and he prioritizes red zone defense very highly. In 2019, the New England Patriots had a dominant defense. However, over prior seasons they would allow a lot of yards, but very few points. That is because they tightened up in the red zone.

Looking at defenses that allow the lowest conversion rate while in the end zone, most of them are some of the elite defenses in the league. There are a few that don't find that ranking and are not great defenses. Some of this can be chalked up to negative and positive regression, but some defenses do play better in the red zone. The field gets smaller and defenses can cover more ground when inside the 20-yard line. If they have more physical defensive back play, loading the box and being able to take away targets inside the 20 is going to make it tougher on opposing offenses.
