Team Defense Rankings Week 12-Top 15 to Start for Fantasy Football

There’s a new Number one defense this week even after the solid display the 49ers put on Monday Night. They’re headed for New Orleans, so both our rankings have the Denver Broncos atop the list as they head to KC to face the woeful Chiefs. There’s some other nice matchup plays as well including the Carolina Panthers and Cleveland Browns getting into our rankings for the first time in a long time

We apologize for these rankings being later than normal due to site downtime, but Happy Thanksgiving: here’s our top 15 defenses for the coming week:

1 Denver Broncos at KC 1.0 1 1
2 San Francisco 49ers at NO 4.0 3 5
