Patriots Defense Fantasy Production Remains Incredibly High Through First Half of Week 4 This Season

We're midway through Week 4, and the New England Patriots' defense has yet to allow an offensive touchdown. That has obviously led to some elite fantasy production, as New England owns the No. 1 defense in fantasy entering Week 4.

In fact, entering Week 4, New England's defense has 61.0 fantasy points in standard-scoring leagues – 20.0 points more than any other unit in the league.

The Patriots have also picked up right where they left off, scoring a TD on a blocked punt and picking off Buffalo Bills' QB Josh Allen twice already in the first half. With four minutes left in the first half, Allen has an equal amount of interceptions as he does completions.

However, we should note that New England has yet to play an offense ranked in the top half of points per game (PPG), so the Patriots could come back to earth soon.

Still, their upcoming schedule isn't too daunting. New England plays the Washington Redskins, New York Giants and New York Jets in the next three weeks though, so fantasy owners should sit back and enjoy this ride while it lasts.
