Top 12 Fantasy Football Defense Rankings for Week 10 (2022)

Top 12 Fantasy Football Defense Rankings for Week 10 (2022)


Defenses are usually just an afterthought in fantasy football. That's leaving points on the board though. Savvy fantasy managers will be scouring the waiver wire to capitalize on the best defensive matchups each and every week, especially with several teams on bye this week.

With that in mind, here are the top 12 fantasy football defenses for Week 10 of the 2022 NFL season.

Fantasy Football Defense Rankings Week 10

12. Kansas City Chiefs (vs JAX)

11. San Francisco 49ers (vs LAC)

10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (vs SEA)

9. Arizona Cardinals (at LAR)

The Los Angeles Rams' offense disappeared at the end of their Week 9 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Matthew Stafford put together three consecutive three-and-out possessions while playing with a slim lead, and and was sacked four times. LA's lack of pass protection poses trouble against an Arizona Cardinals defense that ranks third in quarterback hurries.

8. Buffalo Bills (vs MIN)

7. New York Giants (vs HOU)

6. Indianapolis Colts (at LV)

5. Tennessee Titans (vs DEN)

4. New Orleans Saints (at PIT)

3. Denver Broncos (at TEN)

2. Philadelphia Eagles (vs WAS)

1. Dallas Cowboys (at GB)

The Green Bay Packers have lost five consecutive games and failed to score 20 or more in three of those. Week 9 was the low point of the Packers season as the team coughed up three turnovers and scored just 9 points against a substandard Lions defense. Now, enter the Dallas Cowboys: a turnover-hungry defense that will have no issues shutting down Aaron Rodgers and his lack of WR weapons. Dallas ranks eighth with 13 turnovers forced and lead the league with 33 sacks. The Packers will struggle to score 10 points for a second straight week, and the Cowboys defense will keep fantasy managers happy.
