Fantasy Football Week 12: Top 15 Defense/Special Teams Rankings

Von Miller and the Denver Broncos are the No. 1 fantasy defense in Week 12.

Fantasy football owners will have access to a couple of lottery tickets at the D/ST position in Week 12. Three quarterbacks are in line to get their first starts of the season on Sunday, which may result in a big-time performance for the opposition.

The fresh blood at the position includes guys like Chad Henne, Ryan Lindley and Charlie Batch. Potential beneficiaries—otherwise known as scheduled opponents—of those matchups are the Tennessee Titans, St. Louis Rams and Cleveland Browns, respectively.

Cleveland is the only one of the three that will be at home in Week 12, but it will face the most seasoned of the three new starters. Batch is 37 years old.

All three fantasy D/STs will have their place in the top 15 defenses for Week 12—but only one makes the top five.
