Phillip Anthony Jason "Daffy" DeFreitas (born 18 February 1966) is a former English cricketer. He played county cricket for Leicestershire, Lancashire and Derbyshire, as well as appearing in 44 Test matches and 103 ODIs. Cricket writer Colin Bateman noted that "DeFreitas was an explosive hitter when the mood took him, an aggressive pace bowler, inclined to pitch everything short and a spectacular fielder".

DeFreitas has the distinction of being the only player in the history of the County Championship to take a five-wicket haul against each of the 18 first-class counties.
