There weren't high expectations for many fantasy defenses coming into the 2008 season, but there certainly have been plenty of top-notch point producers. In fact, six of the top 40 scoring leaders in ESPN leagues are defenses. That means up to half of the teams in a twelve-team league are getting superb production out of this position. It also means their opponents will have to find good defensive starts to offset that advantage or risk having to play catch up at the other positions.
