D/ST rankings for Championship Round fantasy football

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

With four of the best offenses in the league rolling into the Championship Round, picking a defense and special teams is nearly impossible. Last week it was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers picking Drew Brees off three times to lead the way, but can you really bank on any of these quarterbacks throwing three interceptions this week?

Of these four, Tom Brady had the most interceptions, but Josh Allen had the most turnovers, as he had six fumbles and ten interceptions to Brady’s 12 picks and one fumble. Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes are nearly impossible to get the ball from with seven and eight turnovers this season.

Each of these defenses has a playmaker or two who can turn a game around, but the question probably comes down to who you think could get a sizable lead, forcing the offense to push the ball into spots it isn’t comfortable. For my money, that’s probably the Kansas City Chiefs over the Buffalo Bills as long as Mahomes is cleared and ready to go.
