Defense/Special Teams Rankings Week 13: Chicago Bears

Only two teams scored a defensive touchdown in Week 12 (Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens). While defensive touchdowns are nearly impossible to predict, the Bears have had the most this season. They are the No. 1-ranked fantasy defense/special teams (DST) for Week 13, facing the New York Giants. Eli Manning is prone to turning the ball over, and while the Giants can certainly lean on Saquon Barkley to get the points, the Bears should fare well.

Fantasy owners looking for streaming options should look at the Seattle Seahawks (28 percent owned). The Seahawks are hosting the 49ers, who are still starting Nick Mullens. After Mullens' first game, he hasn't looked nearly as good (or, perhaps, other teams have viewed the tape on him). Either way, expect the Seahawks' defense to get to him and the 49ers to struggle to put up points. Seattle is ranked No. 2 for Week 13 and should be the top target for those that stream DSTs.
