Team Defense Rankings-Top 15 to Start for Fantasy Football Week 11


The right team defense can pay off big time. Last week the Broncos, Buccaneers,  and Cowboys team defenses had huge weeks collecting sacks and finding the endzone. Defenses in fantasy football are scored vastly differently from league-to-league so make sure you know who your best options are.

Here’s our top 15 fantasy football defenses for Week 11:

ZT JL
1 Houston Texans Jac 1.0 1 1
2 San Francisco 49ers Chi 2.5 2 3
3 Chicago Bears at SF 2.5 3 2
4 Denver Broncos SD 4.0 4 4
5 Green Bay Packers at Det 7.0 6 8
6 Dallas Cowboys Cle 8.0 10 6
7 Miami Dolphins at Buf 8.5 8 9
8 Baltimore Ravens at Pit 9.0 13 5
9 Atlanta Falcons Ari 9.5 5 14
10 Pittsburgh Steelers Bal 9.5 9 10
11 Tampa Bay Buccanneers at Car 11 7 15
12 St. Louis Rams NYJ 11.0 15 7
13 New England Ind 12.5 14 11
14 Washington Redskins Phi 15.5 11 NR
15 New Orleans Saints at Oak 16.0 12 NR

Our ranking team consists of the Fantasy CPR staff: This week so far its just Jeffrey Littrell (JL) and myself (ZT). I’ll add other staff members as their rankings become available. NR stands for not rated and counts for 20 in the composite ranking average.
