What is d short for?


D is a sports abbreviation for defense that is most commonly used in fantasy football (FFB). It refers to the protection of a team's goal, basket, endzone, etc. in order to not allow the other team to score.

In FFB, owners draft an NFL team's defense and ST that are paired together in one position. Special teams are responsibly for punting and kicking the ball, whether it be for field goals or kicking off after a score. The position in the lineup can score points for an owner's team in different ways including keeping opponents from scoring, making interceptions, sacks, fumbles, scoring TDs off opposing offenses, returning kickoffs and punts for TDs.


"I'm starting the Vikings d against the Bears so hopefully they get at least 10 points for me."
