Drafting a defense in the final rounds?
Our award-winning rankers are diligently refining their 2020 fantasy football rankings and projections so you can draft with confidence.
Below are their top-12 consensus defense rankings as of Aug. 30, but you can find their complete and up-to-the-minute rankings and season-long projections across all positions and formats with our Fantasy Football Draft Kit. You can also use that kit to create cheat sheets specific to your league as well as to calculate auction values based on your budget.
