Fantasy Football Player Notes

2019 Draft Rankings
Chicago Bears photo 1. Chicago Bears CHI (at MIN)
The Bears were so far and away the number one defense in 2018 that you can make a case for taking them a round or two before every other defense begins to go. They return most of their talent and should be a safe play most weeks.

Jacksonville Jaguars photo 2. Jacksonville Jaguars JAC (vs . IND)
Like last season, it may not quite work out how everyone was hoping but even then, the Jags weren't terrible on defense. That was their floor and we know the upside is the top unit in potentially a decade so don't hesitate to draft them but with a short leash if it doesn't work out again.
22 weeks ago
Los Angeles Rams photo 3. Los Angeles Rams LAR (vs . ARI)
The Rams had a powerful offense but we all know they made the Super Bowl because of their defense. As a result of that strength, they finished #2 in fantasy points last season at the position, but with plenty of talent lost, they have dropped back a rung in the rankings.
22 weeks ago
Baltimore Ravens photo 4. Baltimore Ravens BAL (vs . PIT)
Baltimore finished 2nd among D/STs in fantasy points in 2017 and 5th in 2018 so you may consider them a lock to finish top 10 in 2019, but they lost more talent on that side of the ball than any team this off-season so they are merely a streamer for now.
22 weeks ago
Minnesota Vikings photo 5. Minnesota Vikings MIN (vs . CHI)
The Vikings have finished as a D/ST1 each of the past five seasons and are a good bet to do the same once again in 2019 since they return the vast majority of their talent. There are several unplayable games on their schedule, however, so make sure you have a plan for those if you draft them.
22 weeks ago
Los Angeles Chargers photo 6. Los Angeles Chargers LAC (at KC)
The Chargers' D/ST disappointed in 2018, finishing tied for 14th, but they come into 2019 with a full bill of health and more talent than perhaps any other unit in the league so they should be one of, if not the top, D/ST drafted this year.
22 weeks ago
Cleveland Browns photo 7. Cleveland Browns CLE (at CIN)
If you are planning on streaming D/STs this season, the Browns should be your target, as they draw the Titans in Week 1 followed by the Jets in Week 2. Not only that, but they also have one of the most talented and complete depth charts in the NFL.
22 weeks ago
New Orleans Saints photo 8. New Orleans Saints NO (at CAR)
We have grown accustomed to thinking shootouts when we see the Saints on the schedule, but the fact of the matter is that their defense has actually been quite good over their last 25 games. You can draft them as a Week 1 streamer versus the Texans' horrid offensive line, and perhaps you'll end up with much more than a streamer.
22 weeks ago
Houston Texans photo 9. Houston Texans HOU (vs . TEN)
Hoston's fate rests in the health of J.J. Watt. If he gets injured, feel free to stream like everyone else, but so long as he stays healthy, you've got a top five D/ST on your roster that you can use most weeks.
22 weeks ago
Denver Broncos photo 10. Denver Broncos DEN (vs . OAK)
The Broncos are nowhere near the same shutdown defense that carried an old Peyton Manning to the Super Bowl, but they still have enough left in the tank that you can draft them as your D/ST, especially to play in Week 1 as a streamer versus the Raiders.
22 weeks ago
New England Patriots photo 11. New England Patriots NE (vs . MIA)
The Patriots managed to finish fourth among all D/STs last year thanks to an extremely low 325 points allowed. Their game scripts often lead to extra sacks and interceptions as well so they make for an excellent streamer in certain weeks and you could make a case for them as your starting D/ST to open the season.
22 weeks ago
Buffalo Bills photo 12. Buffalo Bills BUF (vs . NYJ)
The Bills didn't do much in fantasy terms last year, but they still have plenty of talent, draw the Dolphins and Jets twice each, and play a slow pace on offense so they are once again a fringe top-12 unit.
22 weeks ago
Philadelphia Eagles photo 13. Philadelphia Eagles PHI (at NYG)
Dallas Cowboys photo 14. Dallas Cowboys DAL (vs . WAS)
If you aren't able to grab the Browns as your Week 1 streamer, you might want to turn your attention to Dallas, who not only draws the Giants in Week 1 and the Redskins in Week 2, but actually had an excellent defense by surprise last season.
22 weeks ago
Seattle Seahawks photo 15. Seattle Seahawks SEA (vs . SF)
Pittsburgh Steelers photo 16. Pittsburgh Steelers PIT (at BAL)
Kansas City Chiefs photo 17. Kansas City Chiefs KC (vs . LAC)
Indianapolis Colts photo 18. Indianapolis Colts IND (at JAC)
Tennessee Titans photo 19. Tennessee Titans TEN (at HOU)
Carolina Panthers photo 20. Carolina Panthers CAR (vs . NO)
Green Bay Packers photo 21. Green Bay Packers GB (at DET)
Two years ago, the Jags were an easy breakout defense to pick and last year it was the Bears. This year we've got another, but most are afraid to admit it with the Packers since they have been so awful on that side of the ball for so long. Don't be surprised if they finish top 5 at the position in fantasy.
22 weeks ago
Atlanta Falcons photo 22. Atlanta Falcons ATL (at TB)
Had the Falcons not suffered countless key injuries, we may very well have been looking at them representing the NFC in the Super Bowl again. Their young defense is that good and we will finally get a chance to see it in action this year.
