D/ST Sleepers

 

Buffalo Bills

Buffalo Bills

The Bills remain in a sort of hybrid retool/rebuild mode. Last year new head coach Sean McDermott essentially revamped the entire secondary -- and the result was exceptional. In fact, the Bills were among the league leaders in passing yards and TDs allowed. That is quite a feat considering they played against Tom Brady twice. (Brady passed for more yards/TDs against the Eagles in the Super Bowl than he did against the Bills in both games combined). Rookie Tre White and safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer were all exceptional. In the off-season the team added former pro Bowler Vontae Davis to essentially replace EJ Gaines. They also brought in under-rated DT Star Lotulelei, who should occupy blockers well enough to allow other members of the front seven to get better pressure on the QB. This will be a put-up-or-shut-up season for the 2016 1st round draft pick Shaq Lawson (if he is not a surprise roster-cut). Veteran Kyle Williams agreed to come back for one more year and sure serve as a nice mentor to rookie Harrison Phillips, who enters the league with a similar skill-set to Williams'. Jerry Hughes and Lorenzo Alexander provide a quality veteran presence, and newcomer (from Washington) Trent Murphy has tremendous upside as a pass rusher if he can prove that he is 100% healthy. Speaking of upside, the biggest wild card by far for the defense is rookie Tremaine Edmunds. His physical talent is off the charts -- but will he be able to contribute right away? If Edmunds makes an immediate splash, the Buffalo defense could be much better than expected.


Cleveland Browns

Cleveland Browns

It's been a while since the Browns' D/ST was relevant, but 2018 may finally be the season. The unit has finished no better than 27th each of the past three seasons and its best finish of the past decade was No. 14 in 2013. However, the offseason additions of Denzel Ward, E.J. Gaines, TJ Carrie and Damarious Randall improve a secondary with plenty of depth and upside. Last year's first overall pick, Myles Garrett, was terrific as a rookie and back to full health, and Cleveland's linebacker trio (Christian Kirksey, Joe Schobert and Jamie Collins) is about as talented as you'll find. This unit is probably a year away, but if a few players pan out, Cleveland's D/ST could surprise in 2018.


Denver Broncos

Denver Broncos

Denver's defense has been a fantasy force for a while now, but it appears the unit has fallen from elite status. After posting back-to-back top-two campaigns, the Broncos' D/ST fell to 13th in fantasy in 2017 -- its worst finish since 2011. The unit managed only four top-10 weeks (21 teams had more). The trade of star corner Aqib Talib breaks up the league's top cornerback trio, though the additions of fifth-overall pick Bradley Chubb and Su'a Cravens figure to help. Denver still has some star power in the form of Von Miller, Chris Harris Jr. and Derek Wolfe, but this isn't the dominant unit from a few years ago.


Houston Texans

Houston Texans

Houston was ravaged by injuries last year and the D/ST ended up No. 26 in fantasy points, but note that the unit sat fourth through Week 4 (J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus both went down for the season in Week 5). Houston's D/ST entered 2017 having finished eighth or better four of the previous six seasons. Watt and Mercilus are back, as are Jadeveon Clowney and Benardrick McKinney. Aaron Colvin, Tyrann Mathieu and rookie Justin Reid were added to improve the secondary. The Texans entered 2017 having finished 11th or better in points and yards allowed five of the previous six seasons. Houston has one of the league's top defenses on paper and makes for a strong bounce-back candidate in 2018.
