D/ST rankings for Divisional Round fantasy football

We take you through some of the best D/STs going in the Divisional Round.

The Wild Card round had some good defensive performances, as the Ravens held Derrick Henry and the Titans to just 2.3 yards per rush and the Rams got to Russell Wilson for five sacks. The Saints held the Bears to just 11 first downs and only one successful third-down play out of ten tries.

With the Packers, Chiefs, Bills, Saints and Buccaneers all in the Top-7 of points scored, we don’t have many offenses to attack this week. The Rams have the iffiest quarterback situation at the moment, while the Browns could get behind the Chiefs and end up making mistakes, but overall, there aren’t any smash D/STs to play.

Playing the Rams and Saints based on their ability makes some sense, but their matchups aren’t conducive to big fantasy points. Picking a team you think will win is probably the best idea and if they can win big, they should be in good spots to get sacks and turnovers.
