Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 10

Jacksonville is in London to play Dallas, but this time the Jaguars’ opponent doesn’t lead off Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Defense/Special Teams Rankings for Week 10. The Cowboys do check in at No. 3, but this week’s top billing goes to the Seahawks. The defending Super Bowl champions appear to be getting some of their swagger back on defense, and are usually tough at home. It also doesn’t hurt that the Giants will likely be without their top running back and have plenty of issues on offense. Other strong starting options for Week 10 include Arizona at home against St. Louis, Denver in Oakland against the winless Raiders and Detroit coming off of its bye and hosting Miami. But don’t sleep on the Dolphins’ DST either, as it is No. 1 in fantasy points (Athlon scoring) for the season thanks to 54 points (8 sacks, 5 INTs, 2 fumble recoveries, 2 TDs and a blocked kick) in the last two games.

Each week during the NFL season, we will rank enough players at each position to appease everyone from those in 8-team leagues to 16-team leagues, those that can start two QBs, two TEs, three RBs and four WRs. We cut out the rest, because if you're looking at who the 50th-best running back or the 17th-best kicker is for that week, you need more help than any Web site can give you.
