Defense/Special Teams Rankings Week 5: Jurrell Casey/Tennessee Titans

While we still aren't quite sure what happened when Minnesota hosted Buffalo, for fantasy defense/special teams (DST), the Bills' opponent is one to target. Except for the Minnesota game, all DSTs facing Buffalo has scored double-digit fantasy points (depending on league scoring). In Week 5, the Tennessee Titans play the Bills. Before waivers ran, the Titans DST was 14 percent owned. With the Bears on bye this week, the Titans are a solid streaming option.

The Carolina Panthers are another decent streaming option for those looking for a DST in Week 5. They face the New York Giants, who have been struggling on offense. Eli Manning has yet to throw for 300 yards and he has just four touchdown passes. The Panthers have been solid on defense this season. Coming off of their bye week, fantasy owners could find worse options.
