New England Patriots Defense NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Much was made of Coach Bill Belichick not trusting his defense against the Colts as they decided to go for it on fourth down. While Belichick probably won’t have made that move a few years ago, his defense wasn’t as bad as the media made it out to be.
For the season, the Patriots’ defense gave up the 5th fewest points in the league and finished no lower than 13th against the run and the pass. This group should be stronger in 2010 as they’ve added more depth through the draft.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: With fresh help coming in from the draft this year, the Patriots should have a good camp on the defensive side of the football. This group is in a rebuilding phase and they need their draft picks to pay off if they plan on making back to the Super Bowl any time soon.
This season they should still be a top ten defense in the NFL, but they will need to make more sacks and turnovers to be a solid fantasy group. Look for them to improve this year but not be the defense they once were.
- Great Coaching
- Good Overall Defense
- Need To Be Stronger Up Front
