Telvin Smith: Defense/Special Teams Rankings Week 6

Image placeholder title

The Jacksonville defense/special teams (DST) not only led DSTs in fantasy points for Week 5, but has been the top scoring DST this season (assuming standard DST scoring). The Jaguars are actually only owned in 67 percent of Yahoo! leagues, so if this DST is available, make the move now. Jacksonville is the No. 2-ranked DST for Week 6, based in part on the matchup at home with the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy owners also need to be aware that the byes continue this week. Owners of Seattle, Buffalo, Dallas and Cincinnati are going to need to search for other options this week. For those streaming defenses, the Atlanta Falcons, ranked No. 4 this week, are available in about a quarter of fantasy leagues.
