Defense/Special Teams Rankings Week 15

The New Orleans Saints face Bryce Petty and are a nice streaming option

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

Surprising no one, the Jacksonville Jaguars are the top-ranked fantasy defense/special teams (DST) for Week 15. They survived against Seattle and now they get to face a Houston team that will likely be on its third quarterback of the year. Even before T.J. Yates took the reins, the Texans were allowing opposing DSTs to score the seventh-most fantasy points in the league (and that stat includes the games where Deshaun Watson was the quarterback). It's a great matchup for the Jags, but fantasy owners were starting them anyway.


For those looking to stream DSTs, the New Orleans Saints (about 37 percent owned) are the second-ranked DST this week, facing the New York Jets. The Saints are at home, and the Jets just lost Josh McCown for the year. They have no running game to speak of and Bryce Petty will be the quarterback. Last year in six games, Petty threw for 809 yards with twice as many interceptions (seven) as touchdowns (three). The Saints should be able to put up points on the J-E-T-S.
