Defense/Special Teams Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 12

The Miami Dolphins (vs. the Houston Texans) are a solid DST play this week.

With a high-powered offense, and Matthew Stafford likely sidelined, the Kansas City Chiefs look poised to have a solid game in Week 12. Their defense/special teams (DST) should be started in all fantasy formats, as the Los Angeles Rams are without Cooper Kupp, likely without Stafford, and have no offense on the ground. The Rams are struggling, and losing their quarterback isn’t going to help. Fire up the Chiefs DST in Week 12.

Another DST to pick up for those streaming DSTs is Miami. The Dolphins are playing the Houston Texans, and as we have seen over the past few weeks, any DST against Houston is a good one to start. In Week 11, the Texans faced the Washington Commanders, and they scored a defensive touchdown in the first quarter, helping their point total (also helping is they only allowed the Texans to score 10 points and recorded five sacks of Davis Mills). Next up against Houston is a Miami Dolphins team that recently added pass rusher Bradley Chubb and is coming off of a bye.
