Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 11

Patrick Peterson

Jacksonville doesn’t play this week, so for once the Jaguars don’t factor into Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Defense/Special Teams Rankings for Week 11. Instead, our top billing goes to Miami, the DST that has scored the most fantasy points (76, Athlon scoring) over the last four weeks. The Dolphins’ defense has been especially tough at home, as evidenced by a 37-0 whitewashing of San Diego two weeks ago, and should have the upper hand at Sun Life Stadium Thursday night against the Bills. On Sunday, Arizona hosts Detroit in a matchup featuring two of this season’s top-scoring fantasy DSTs. We like both as starting options, but ranked the Lions a little higher because backup Drew Stanton will be at quarterback for the Cardinals in place of an injured Carson Palmer (torn ACL).

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.
