Defense/Special Teams Rankings Week 15

The Bears DST at home is worth starting, regardless of matchup

Many fantasy owners who had been relying on the Chicago Bears as their defense/special teams (DST) for fantasy this year benched them in Week 14 because of the matchup against the Rams. However, the Bears showed that they may just be matchup-proof, at least at home. The good news is the Bears are at home again in Week 15. They face the Green Bay Packers, but after shutting down Jared Goff (and depending on league scoring, becoming the top DST for Week 14), they can be trusted for Week 15 as well.


The Jacksonville Jaguars are the top-ranked DST in a matchup against the Washington Redskins where neither team has anything to play for. For fantasy owners streaming DSTs, this is a tough week. The Buffalo Bills are still about 50 percent owned, and they are a solid streaming option against the Detroit Lions this week. The Bills are ranked fourth. The Lions DST is another option, although not as highly ranked. The Lions are available in about 80 percent of leagues.
