2023 Fantasy Football Draft Rankings: Defenses

The D/ST position is an interesting one in fantasy. Most might look at it as just defense, but anytime there's a punt or kick return, we get points from special teams, so it's a double-edged weapon that takes some thought, especially when it comes to reviewing rankings and deciding if you're going to draft one to ride with all season, or stream.

After all, it could be a difference-making position on a week-to-week basis. If you're down by 20 points heading into Monday Night Football with only your defense left, I bet you'll be hoping for a scoop-and-score or a pick-6!
