Early Fantasy Football Team Defense Rankings

My GMEN HQ fantasy football rankings continue and this week I’ll be taking a look at defenses. The defense position is always an interesting one, as pre-season rankings never turn out the way you expect them to. Sometimes heavy hitters like the New York Jets or Pittsburgh Steelers are highly ranked and taken earlier than expected in fantasy drafts and every year there’s a fantasy team or two that disappoints.

On the flipside there are the real life defenses of NFL teams that aren’t expected to do much that end up becoming top rated fantasy football defenses at the end of the year and we have to look no further than the Houston Texans and the Cincinnati Bengals last year for such examples.

With that in mind here are my current fantasy football team defense rankings:

  1. San Francisco 49ers
  2. Baltimore Ravens
  3. Pittsburgh Steelers
  4. Houston Texans
  5. Chicago Bears
  6. Philadelphia Eagles
  7. Green Bay Packers
  8. New York Giants
  9. Detroit Lions
  10. New York Jets
  11. Seattle Seahawks
  12. New England Patriots
  13. Buffalo Bills
  14. Cincinnati Bengals
  15. Denver Broncos
  16. Kansas City Chiefs
  17. Arizona Cardinals
  18. Dallas Cowboys
  19. Atlanta Falcons
  20. New Orleans Saints
  21. Tennessee Titans
  22. San Diego Chargers
  23. Oakland Raiders
  24. Miami Dolphins
  25. Cleveland Browns
  26. Minnesota Vikings
  27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  28. Washington Redskins
  29. Jacksonville Jaguars
  30. Carolina Panthers
