2019 Fantasy Defense of the Year: New England Patriots
Hey all. For the DST of the Year, I did not put it up to a vote. This one was pretty obvious. The New England Patriots were in a league of their own this year, out-pacing the next closest defense (Pittsburgh) by 50 points. They outscored the number 8 defense (Tampa) by 100 points. And, they outscored the number 1 defense from last season (Chicago) by 126 points. I bring up Chicago for a reason. Next year when I’m putting out my draft rankings, I will be advising you against drafting the Patriots DST like I advised against drafting Chicago this past offseason. In the past 20 years there has never been a defense repeat as the top defense....and I expect the same to happen for New England. The position is just to volatile year-to-year.
