ChiCitySports Fantasy Review: 2017 Fantasy Football D/ST and K Rankings

Defense/Special Teams

We have arrived at the most anticipated moment of your draft: the final two rounds, or for those of you who insist on taking a defense in the 7th round (we all know “that” guy).

The same dominant defenses we’ve been accustomed to watching the last few years should be the first ones off the board, but if you’re one for streaming defenses throughout the year, we understand.

Rank Team Bye
1 Denver Broncos 5
2 Seattle Seahawks 6
3 New England Patriots 9
4 Houston Texans 7
5 Kansas City Chiefs 10
6 Arizona Cardinals 8
7 Minnesota Vikings 9
8 Carolina Panthers 11
9 Jacksonville Jaguars 8
10 Oakland Raiders 10
11 Cincinnati Bengals 6
12 Baltimore Ravens 10
13 Atlanta Falcons 5
14 New York Giants 8
15 Pittsburgh Steelers 9

17 Philadelphia Eagles 10
18 Green Bay Packers 8
19 Los Angeles Chargers 9
20 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 11
21 Miami Dolphins 11
22 Buffalo Bills 6
23 Tennessee Titans 8
24 Detroit Lions 7
25 New York Jets 11
26 Washington Redskins 5
27 Chicago Bears 9
28 Dallas Cowboys 6
29 Indianapolis Colts 11
30 New Orleans Saints 5
31 San Francisco 49ers 11
32 Cleveland Browns 9

It’s the same old song and dance for Denver and Seattle, so expect dominant campaigns once again. As for Houston, a healthy JJ Watt can go a long way to making sure this defense stays in the top 5 this season. Oakland was a heavy sleeper last year that disappointed, but the chance for them to show up late to the party is on the table with a team built to win.

Kickers

If you’ve eliminated kickers from your league, good for you. If you haven’t, here’s a list of a couple good kickers followed by a crapshoot. Don’t be the guy to take a kicker before the last round.
