Fantasy Football Week 17 Defense/Special Teams Rankings

The Redskins will have to hold and cheat their way to protect Rex Grossman from Jason Babin and the Eagles on Sunday.

It's the last week of the season and we're a little bit late due to some waiting for some of these situations to develop with which guys will get rest and which backups could prove to be valuable in Week 17. I'm doing all of the rankings this week and if you have any questions about why I have a guy a bit higher than you might expect, don't be bashful and put post a question in the comment section or you can send them to me on Twitter @MikeSGallagher.

I'd also encourage you to check out Kenny's Preview that covers every game. I covered several scenarios in Waiver Wire Scoops as well. Plus don't forget that I'll be posting the superfluously informative Active/Inactive Update early Sunday.
