On paper, the Rams could have the most talented defense in the league. Between that dominating front 7 and ball-hawking secondary, the Rams should certainly pile up the always-important turnovers and sacks. There aren’t many games on their 2015 schedule you’ll think twice about using St. Louis’ D/ST. Perhaps Week 5 at Green Bay, but that’s a long way away.

4. Buffalo Bills

Adding Rex Ryan as defensive coord … er, head coach will only help an already-elite defensive unit. Buffalo led the NFL in 2014 with 54 sacks and are definitely on the rise. The players are there as is the somewhat favorable schedule – Jets twice, Patriots once without Tom Brady, Jaguars, Titans, Dolphins twice.

5. Houston Texans

J.J. Watt single-handedly makes this unit an every week start. OK, not exactly, but he’s a huuuuuge part of it. The Texans forced a league-best 34 turnovers a season ago. Now with NT Vince Wilfork and a hopefully healthy Jadeveon Clowney returning, Houston is banking on its defense to carry them, because that offense isn’t going to score much.

6. Miami Dolphins

With Ndamukong Suh now in the fold at defensive tackle, the Dolphins rush D should certainly improve. He can also get to the quarterback. As can Cameron Wake and Olivier Vernon, who should benefit from Suh’s presence. And in a division with shaky QB play (See Smith, Geno and well, whoever wins the Buffalo job) and matchups vs. Tennessee, Jacksonville and Houston, Miami should be a viable source of defensive fantasy points.

7. Denver Broncos

Wade Phillips might not be an ideal head coach, but that guy flat-out coach defense. The new Broncos defensive coordinator will unleash his 3-4 D and hope OLB Von Miller wreaks havoc on opposing quarterbacks. Von will get help from veteran DeMarcus Ware and rookie Shane Ray. The secondary was a top-10 unit in 2014 with CB Aqib Talib and S TJ Ward, though it lost Rahim Moore to the Texans. Denver allowed the third-fewest yards in the NFL in 2014.

8. Carolina Panthers

There’s no question the Panthers’ defense took a step or 5 back last year after a dominating 2013. It happens. They dropped from 60 sacks 2 seasons to 40 in 2014, but they once again forced 26 turnovers. LB Luke Kuechly is a tackling machine and rookie OLB Shaq Thompson should help get that sack total up a bit. Carolina opens the season with Jacksonville, Houston, New Orleans (Saints on grass?) and Tampa Bay, a favorable schedule to say the least.

9. Green Bay Packers

The Packers defense tends to be all or nothing. They have the talent — Julius Peppers, Clay Matthews, Morgan Burnett, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix — to be top-scoring unit, but they don’t always play like it. They gave up too many rush yards in 2014 and didn’t exactly address the middle of the defense in the offseason. The Packers D will drive you mad at times, but they’ll also come up with those 20-point games on occasion.

10. New England Patriots

The Patriots lost CB Darrelle Revis and NT Vince Wilfork, but they always seem to be OK on that side of the ball. While they give up yards, New England is more “bend but don’t break” as they’re points allowed is usually among the top third of the league. Again, 6 of their games come against the Jets, Bills and Dolphins — not exactly the Packers, Colts and Broncos. Weeks 14-16 (fantasy playoffs time), they get the Texans, Titans and Jets, respectively. Sign me up for that. For now, at least.
