Fantasy Football: Top 15 D/ST

#3 Denver Broncos

The Denver defense has become a popular target for Fantasy Football owners. A group that features Von Miller, Aqib Talib, and Chris Harris is going to put up some points. They may not be able to stick together much longer, but another year of taking the Broncos in your draft would be a pretty sound move.

2016 Ranking: 2nd

I fully expect the Denver Broncos to be a dominant defense in 2017. You could argue that this is the best defense in all of football. However, that doesn’t necessarily make them the best Fantasy Football defense. While the Broncos won’t allow many points to be scored, they don’t excel at forcing turnovers and putting up points of their own.

The Broncos defense should be solid for an eight or nine point average on a week to week basis. That makes them a valuable defensive unit to have available. They aren’t the top unit for fantasy owners, but you should win more than you lose with them on your roster.
