Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 7

Seattle’s DST hasn’t been all that productive from a fantasy standpoint, but it’s the Seahawks’ reputation and matchup that has the defending Super Bowl champions leading off Athlon Sports’ Fantasy Football Defense/Special Teams Rankings for Week 7. Even though Seattle lost to Dallas at home last week, the Seahawks scored their first defensive or special teams touchdown of the season and now gets a Rams team that’s allowing the most fantasy points to opposing DSTs. Elsewhere, Detroit’s defense had its way with rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater last week (8 sacks, 3 INTs), tying Philadelphia for the most fantasy points (22, Athlon scoring). The Lions are shaping up to be another strong play this week, as they are at home facing a Jimmy Graham-less New Orleans offense.

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.
