ESPN's weekly defense/special teams (D/ST) fantasy football rankings are an aggregate of our four rankers, listed alphabetically. They are Mike Clay, Tristan H. Cockcroft, Eric Karabell and Eric Moody.

Rankings for the week will be published every Tuesday and weigh the defensive unit's fantasy potential and the quality of that week's matchup, and are updated throughout the week for news and emerging analysis. Rankings are refreshed every Friday to take out players from Thursday's game(s).
