Top 9 Defenses to Target in Your Fantasy Football Draft

Before I come out with my official 2017 fantasy football rankings, I wanted to start off with the easiest positions, and the ones that won’t likely change much: defense (D/ST) and kicker. You always heard to draft a kicker and defense towards the end of your draft, but I am more sure of that this year. Watch the video to find out why. I think there is more of a debate on who to draft first than where to draft a defense. Here are my Top 9 defenses that I am targeting in the 2nd to last round of my fantasy football drafts:

  1. Steelers D @CLE, vs. MIN, @CHI, @BAL, vs. JAX
  2. Bills D vs. NYJ
  3. Ravens D @CIN, vs. CLE, @JAX
  4. Falcons D @CHI
  5. Chargers D @DEN, vs. MIA
  6. Panthers D @SF, vs. BUF
  7. Bucs D @MIA, vs. CHI, @MIN
  8. Colts D @LAR, vs. ARI, vs. CLE, @SEA, vs. SF
  9. Packers D vs. SEA
