D/ST rankings for Divisional round fantasy football

We take you through some of the best D/STs going in the Divisional round for fantasy football.

The last time the Chiefs net the Texans they lost, but they also intercepted DeShaun Watson twice and forced a fumble. Kansas City’s defense has stepped up since that game in Week 6 and has five double-digit fantasy scores in their last six games.

The Ravens have also been playing well defensively and as long as they can put up points and keep Derrick Henry from getting chunk yardage each carry, they should be able to force Ryan Tannehill to pass against their great secondary.

The 49ers defense has taken a step back of late but they had a bye week to get healthier while the Vikings come off a short week after putting all they had on the field against the Saints. I expect the 49ers to be ready for this matchup.
