2022 Defense Rankings

 Defense is a position better off streamed. Even the best defenses in the league come across juggernaut offenses that they can't slow down. We recommend the streaming strategy based on matchups. Last season 49 quarterbacks finished as a QB1 in at least one week of the fantasy season. Finding replacement quarterbacks is a great strategy in fantasy football.

 We also like to target teams with easy schedules to start the season. The "Early Schedule Strength" column shows the strength of the schedule from weeks 1-4 of the season. For clarity, the Philadelphia Eagles have the easiest schedule to open the season.

 Stay tuned throughout the season for streaming recommendations.
