While some defense/special teams (DST) are proving to be solid options for fantasy football owners, others are slowly becoming a bust. DSTs like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Detroit Lions were the top scorers (depending on league) for Week 2, while the Seattle Seahawks and the Carolina Panthers didn't make the top 10.

For those looking to stream defenses, teams to target are those playing the New York Jets, the Indianapolis Colts and the Chicago Bears. So far, those DSTs have done well. However, for Week 3, the Baltimore Ravens, in London, facing the Jacksonville Jaguars, are the top option. They've finished in the top three in terms of DST scoring for both weeks of the season so far.
