Defense/Special Teams Rankings: NFL Fantasy Week 4

The Green Bay Packers DST is a solid streaming option in Week 4

The best defense/special teams (DST) in fantasy so far this season has been the Buffalo Bills. They face a steep test in Week 4 taking on Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens on the road. This game has the feel of a high-scoring affair, which doesn't bode well for opposing DSTs.  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been the second-best DST and they face Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs on "Sunday Night Football," another tough matchup for a DST.

Fantasy managers may be looking to stream DSTs this week if they have the Bills or the Bucs, and that might not be a bad option. DSTs to look at include: Green Bay Packers (vs. New England Patriots), who are available in 30 percent of leagues, and the Pittsburgh Steelers (vs. New York Jets), who are available in 40 percent of leagues. If you have the roster space, grab a DST just to get you through this week.
