Week 5 Fantasy Football Defense Special Teams Rankings

BY foxsports • October 5, 2016

The FOX Sports fantasy football department will publish weekly fantasy football rankings for Week 4 and beyond every Wednesday afternoon and Saturday night around midnight (EST) during the NFL season.  Our weekly rankings are based on that week's matchup and not a rest-of-the-season ranking. Links for each positional weekly ranking can be found below or you can visit the FOX Sports fantasy homepage for more news and analysis

Note: In cases of wait-and-see Week 4 injury news, each contributor may have different opinions on whether or not that player will be active, which will be evident in their ranking below.

Can't wait for the rankings? Follow us on Twitter and fire away!
