Fantasy Football Rankings - NFL Week 8 Team Defenses (DST)

SI Fantasy expert Michael Fabiano provides his Week 8 team defense fantasy football rankings to help you dominate the competition!

Week 8 of the 2020 fantasy football season is here! That’s where I come in -- let's set those Week 8 lineups with a little help from my weekly PPR fantasy football rankings.

We should have a good grasp of what our team is capable of but we have to keep an eye out on the waiver wire for difference makers. You can find diamonds in the rough if injuries hurt a star. Let's make sure we bolster our roster because we never know when COVID could strike down an entire game!

This week, to view the FLEX rankings, you'll need a SI Fantasy+ subscription.
