The D.C Defenders started the XFL season as one of the hottest teams in the entire league. They played in the first game of the 2020 XFL season, taking on the Seattle Dragons. The Defenders were the first team to score in the XFL by making a field goal and then scored the first ever special teams touchdown by blocking a punt. The Defenders had a big second half an ended up winning the game 31 to 19.
In this video Q discuss the importance of streaming your defense in fantasy football. He breaks down the advantages and how it can help you win a championship. He uses stats and provides analysis to show drafting a defense earlier in the draft and sticking with them will probably hurt your fantasy football team in the long run.
Last season Mercilus played out of position all year so that the Texans could utilize Jadeveon Clowney as they saw fit. Mercilus was also recouping from a torn pectoral muscle suffered early in the 2017 season.
The Philadelphia Eagles enter their 2019 training camp with seven safeties on the current roster. Those seven safeties are Malcolm Jenkins, Rodney McLeod, Tre Sullivan, Blake Countess, Andrew Sendejo, Deiondre’ Hall, and Trae Elston. Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod are absolute locks to make the Eagles final 53-man roster when the season starts on September 8th. The Eagles will most likely carry four safeties during the season to give the team depth at the position in case of injury. The question going into camp is which if the remaining five safeties will grab the last two safety spots on the roster. It will be a great camp battle between Blake Countess, Tre Sullivan, Deiondre’ Hall, Trae Elston, and veteran safety Andrew Sendejo…
Moving on to the AFC North, It is similar in ways to its fellow northern division in the NFC with a few strong defense, including one that could be considered the best in the AFC last season…
It’s about time for one of these articles to address the division that contains the best defense and by doing so let’s start with said defense.
After addressing the defenses of the NFC South last article, we will continue now with their AFC counterparts.
A reminder that defenses are an important part of anyone’s fantasy football squad like any starting slot. So continuing on from last week, let’s look at the South divisions and start with the NFC.
In this series of articles I will go division by division talking about each team’s defense and ranking them in the last article. What makes me qualified? Well, I did take a defense as my first round pick one year. To be fair, it was my first year actually playing fantasy. Also, in my first year of fantasy it should be known that 9 DSTs averaged at least 10 fantasy points a game as compared to last season where the Bears were the only squad to do so (and by a considerable margin). In the last article we discussed the NFC West and in this article we will discuss the AFC West.
Now I know what you’re thinking. DST is just a throw away position, they’re just a dime a dozen. However, I attest that every slot in your fantasy roster is important and needs attention so that you can build the best team you possibly can. If you don’t believe me, then don’t come crying to me when you lose by 5 points one week, because your throwaway defense gave up over 300 yards and 4 touchdowns. That’s not a threat it’s just a warning.
