Telvin Smith/Jacksonville Jaguars: Defense/Special Teams (DST) Rankings Week 15

For fantasydefense/special teams (DST), the Jacksonville Jaguars have been an elite option all season. They are still the No. 1-ranked option for Week 12, even facing the Arizona Cardinals. While Blaine Gabbert looked serviceable in Week 11, he still threw two interceptions. Also, Houston's defense is nowhere near as formidable than the Jags have been this season.

For those looking to stream DSTs, the Cincinnati Bengals (just under 50 percent owned) face the Cleveland Browns. The Browns, even with Corey Coleman back, are still a team to target when it comes to opposing DSTs. On the season, they are giving up the most fantasy points to DSTs, so grab the Bengals.
