Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 15

Robert Quinn and the Rams' defense posted their second straight shutout, dominating the Redskins 24-0 on the road

The St. Louis Rams have posted back-to-back shutouts, an impressive performance that earns them a spot near the top of Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Defense/Special Teams Rankings for Week 15. The Rams haven’t given up a point in three weeks, having shut out the Raiders and Redskins by a combined score of 76-0. This DST also has racked up 13 sacks, seven takeaways (5 INTs, 2 fumbles) and two touchdowns during this span. St. Louis is another strong option this week against Arizona, but don’t sleep on the Cardinals, the No. 5 fantasy DST this season. Elsewhere, Seattle’s defense has really started playing like defending Super Bowl champions recently. The Seahawks’ DST has scored double-digit fantasy points in three straight games and on Sunday hosts a reeling San Francisco team, which is why the champs check in at No. 1 this week.
