There are a few tough fantasy positions to nail down this season (TE, RB, etc.) and defense/special teams is certainly one of them. It’s difficult to predict anything before the season starts, as teams don’t tip their hands much before the games start to actually count.
That said, we can still get a pretty good feel for how each squad will perform based on their past performances and their impending matchups. We’ve taken a look a the schedule for the opening week and come up with the top 25 fantasy defenses/special teams for this weekend. Here’s a look at how we anticipate the scoring will go over the next few days.
