Fantasy Football Rankings: Week 13 Defenses

Okay RotoBaller, it's officially the NFL playoffs. In this article you'll see our team's

fantasy football defense rankings for playoff leagues. This week there are lots of fantasy football contests and leagues that kick off for the NFL playoffs, and our rankings will you draft the best rosters.

Playoff leagues are a fun way to kick off a fresh new fantasy football contest for the NFL postseason. For most of us, we've been left with a void and that weekly excitement with season-long fantasy football leagues all wrapped up. There will be DFS contests all through the Super Bowl, but playoff league formats are really fun and replicate that season-long feel. Most of these contests will require you to choose only a single player from each NFL team, and to fill out a certain amount of rosters spots at each position. There are many different contests out there, but our friends at FFPC of course hold the biggest and best Playoff Challenge tournament with a $500K grand prize to the first place winner.

Our rankings below are geared towards playoff league formats, and take into account how far we think each team will get in the NFL playoffs. The goal is to choose the best combination of players that will play the most games, and score the most points. In addition to our staff DST rankings, below you will also find a summary of the important fantasy football injury news for this week. There are many key injuries and COVID-19 situations to keep track of, so be sure to check back until kickoff. Good luck RotoBallers!
