Against the Broncos, the Dolphins are a great fantasy DST for Week 11
In Week 10, three defense/special teams (DSTs) scored touchdowns: the Chicago Bears and Jacksonville Jaguars on kick/punt returns and the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have the most defensive touchdowns out of any team so far this season with five, but DST touchdowns are hard to predict. The Colts face the Green Bay Packers in Week 11 and are ranked outside the top 15. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are hitting their stride, and this game could be tough for the Colts' defense.
Looking at matchups for Week 11, the Miami Dolphins get to face the Denver Broncos. In Week 10, the Las Vegas Raiders faced the Broncos and had the most fantasy points among all DSTs. Part of that reason is that Drew Lock has been struggling. He is also dealing with a ribs injury and it is possible that he may sit in Week 11. If Brett Rypien is the starting quarterback for the Broncos, move the Miami Dolphins DST from No. 2 to No. 1.
Teams on bye: Buffalo, Chicago, New York Giants, San Francisco
