New York Jets @ New England Patriots

*Rostered in 21.05% of Yahoo! leagues and 30.5% of ESPN leagues

The New England Patriots are allowing 9.1 fantasy points per game to opposing defense/special teams units, per 4for4’s Schedule-Adjusted Fantasy Points Allowed, fifth most in the NFL. The New York Jets defense/special teams, New England’s Week 11 opponent, are scoring 8.4 fantasy points per game, also fifth most in the NFL.

New York’s pass rush sits No. 8 with a 22.2% quarterback pressure rate, per 4for4’s NFL Team Stats Explorer, and No. 12 with 26 sacks. New England’s middling offensive line 18.6% quarterback pressure rate allowed is in for a long day.

New England’s offense has struggled with ball security, turning over 0.1 interceptions per drive and 0.09 fumbles per drive. Both rates are top-three highest in the NFL. New York’s defense should eagerly take advantage of the former as their 0.11 interceptions per drive are tied for third-best in the league.

New York’s 19.6 points allowed per game are one of the 10-lowest rates among NFL defenses.

Like their pass protection, New England’s 22.6 points generated per game is a thoroughly mid-tier average.
