As we head into the fantasy playoffs it is important to look into matchups up ahead. This is the time we look at schedules to see who plays who and what defenses are in good spots potentially in the first round of the playoffs. Below I will go over some defenses who look to have favorable schedules down the stretch and are likely still available in your waiver wires.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jags start a three game stretch of good matchups this week as they host the Broncos who are starting rookie quarterback Paxton Lynch. After that they faces the Vikings who have been unable to do much offensively, followed by the Houston Texans who have a quarterback that has turned the ball over in all but one game this season. This defense has been far from good, but they do have some favorable matchups up ahead and are worth considering.

Green Bay Packers

The Packers have been awful defensively, but they draw a good match these week and then good matchups in Week 15 and 16. If you make the playoffs in your league and have a bye week in the first round, assuming the bye is in Week 14, the Packers make sense. They face the Bears who are currently starting Matt Barkley and the Vikings, who as I mentioned above, are not doing much offensively. The Packers had their best defensive game against the Vikings (from a fantasy standpoint) and that is who they will be facing in Week 16, which is the week where most fantasy championship games take place.

Tennessee Titans

The Titans are one of two teams on bye this week, but return to a favorable schedule as they face the Broncos, Chiefs, Jaguars, and Texans to close out the season. Neither of those offenses are imposing. The Titans defense is not great, but the fact that they have such a fair schedule makes me interested in them in the upcoming weeks.

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts begin a three game stretch against the Jets, Texans, and Vikings. All offenses that either turn the ball over and/or struggle to score points. The Colts have not been awful this year and they have accounted for 11 sacks in the last five games. If you noticed a pattern on this column, I am attacking the same offenses for the most part and it is for good reason.
