Today’s post takes a look at fantasy football defenses, one of the most underrated position in fantasy football.

Many league owners choose not to draft a defense until the second to last round, just choosing a random one because, “It’s just defense, who cares?”. My guess is that you do care, or else you wouldn’t be reading this article.

Having a good defense, such as the 2013 Kansas City Chiefs (12.75 points per week), could mean having those couple extra points you need to take your head-to-head matchup against that rival co-worker who always brags about having Peyton Manning on his team.

Who cares about Peyton Manning when you have the Legion of Boom on your side? As the saying goes, “The best offense is a good defense”.
