Fantasy Football Rankings, Week 2: Top 32 D/STs including Steelers, Bills and Ravens – DraftKings Nation

September 16, 2020

In Week 1, your Top 7 fantasy D/STs were theSaints, Washington,Ravens,PatriotsandChargers,Steelers, andBills. These are the only teams to top 10 fantasy points while the Saints were the only team to score a defensive touchdown.

Probably the biggest surprise was Washington sackingCarson Wentzeight times and got a hand on him 15 times! We knew the addition ofChase Youngto an already good defensive line would be a big plus, but that’s pretty crazy. TheEagleswere down three starting linemen, but still.

We’re still trying to see how these 2020 defenses will become. Week 1 gave us some idea, but we’ll need more data to give us a truer look. From these initial results, theDolphins, Washington, Eagles,Texans,Giants,Bengals,Browns, andJetsare teams worth targeting your D/ST against.

But there are a few defenses you’ll want to start against all but the truly elite offenses. TheSteelerslook to be one of those, after holdingSaquon Barkleyto five yards on 15 carries on Monday Night Football. They also sackedDaniel Jonesthree times, intercepted him twice and got a hit on him eight times. And Jones actually looked okay under all that pressure.

Tampa Bay Buccaneersvs.Panthers

I don’t love targeting the Panthers, but I do like the Buccaneers defense enough to use them against middling to bad teams. I expect the Bucs offense will get on track this week and put the Panthers in a hole that will give the Bucs defensive line plenty of snaps to go afterTeddy Bridgewaterwith abandon.
