While the Baltimore Ravens DST struggled on Monday night, they are a top-5 fantasy option for Week 4
The Indianapolis Colts defense/special teams (DST) scored the most fantasy points in Week 3, which shouldn't come as a surprise. They faced the Jets, who are a team that fantasy owners should keep an eye on when it comes to streaming DSTs. In Week 4, the Jets face the Denver Broncos on "Thursday Night Football." The Broncos DST is ranked No. 5 this week. While the Broncos aren't a great DST (they finished 21st in terms of fantasy points in Week 3 against Tampa Bay), they should have the opportunity to put up fantasy points on Thursday night. The Jets are not a good team, and Thursday night games are often lower scoring. The Broncos should be a decent streaming option.
For those fantasy owners that drafted the Baltimore DST with confidence, Week 3 was rough. Depending on league scoring, you may have gotten anywhere from negative points to just a few (there was a nice kick return for a TD by Devin Duvernay). The Kansas City Chiefs showed there are, in fact, holes in this defense. In Week 4, the Ravens face the Washington Football Team. Because of that matchup, the Ravens are still ranked No. 4 this week. The Ravens should have a very nice bounce-back game and return to fantasy favor.
NOTE: Pittsburgh vs. Tennessee, scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. ET has been postponed by the NFL due to COVID-19 concerns. Players from those two teams will not be available for fantasy lineups in Week 4.
