Fantasy Football 2016 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 4

The Denver Broncos have not allowed more than 20 points yet this season, which already makes them a good choice for the top fantasy defense/special teams on any given week, let alone Week 4. When you add in that Tampa Bay struggled against a tough Arizona defense, against which James Winston committed five turnovers (4 INTs, fumble), then the reasons why the Broncos are the No. 1 fantasy DST for Week become clear.

Denver’s defense is arguably stronger than the Cardinals, which scored more than 20 fantasy points (depending on scoring) in the 40-7 shellacking of the Buccaneers in Week 2. The Cardinals aren’t a bad option either this week with Los Angeles set to pay a visit. While the Rams’ defense has done its part, the offense is still struggling, ranking last in yards and 29th in points per game.

Also don’t forget that this the first week where byes come into play. No Green Bay or Philadelphia DST available in Week 4.
