Fantasy Defense Rankings Week 12: Who to start, sit at D/ST in fantasy football


Some weeks it seems like there is no shortage of legitimate starting D / ST options, whether that’s because the best of the best are in solid situations or because there are a lot of potential sleepers thanks to some very favorable matches. The other weeks … well, they’re like this. Our Week 12 Fantasy Defense rankings illustrate why some owners will be struggling to find interesting streamers this week.

Byes don’t have a big effect on our ranking. The Chiefs and Cardinals are absent, and while the Cardinals have been a solid D / ST this year, removing two decent infractions from the table should theoretically create fewer bad clashes. This is not the case.

The reason? Two of the best matches – the Jets and the Texans – go head to head. Unfortunately, both have such bad D / STs that we don’t rank very well either. You can certainly trust the game trends, use one of those defenses, and hope for a sloppy, sack-filled game, but you’d be taking a big risk. The Falcons and Jaguars are similar to the Jets and Texans – two great D / ST clashes against two of the worst defenses fantasy. Again, you can try to play any of these, but good luck. Also throw the Bears-Lions game in this category, at least on the Lions side.

We know any defense can pay off in any given week, but we prefer to trust talented D / STs like the Rams (@ Packers), Steelers (@ Bengals), Colts (vs. . Buccaneers) or the Packers (vs. Rams) despite tough games. The Rams have had a few turnover issues lately – something the Packers are great at creating – so Green Bay has the most growing or declining advantages. The Colts have been on fire too, and we’ve seen the Bucs fight recently (against New Orleans), so the Colts have decent home ground to play.

WEEK 12 FANTASY: Sleepers | Busts | Start them, sit them down

When it comes to streamers, the Red Hot Eagles (@ Giants), Dolphins (vs. Panthers), and Bears (@ Lions) seem to be your best bets, but you can also try your luck with Seattle vs. Washington. The Panthers aren’t as good at a clash now that Sam Darnold is on the sidelines, but Miami still has enough talent to limit Carolina.

Overall, many fantasy owners will be taking a risk in D / ST this week, whether it’s starting a defense with a low cap or one with a low floor. Determine what makes the most sense for your team, and hope for the best.
