The San Francisco 49ers have the most fantasy points among all defense/special teams (DSTs) so far this season. They are ranked No. 1 for Week 6 because as a DST, they are solid, regardless of their opponent. They face the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6 and fantasy managers should have no hesitation in starting them.
The Baltimore Ravens are available in nearly one-third of leagues and face the New York Giants this week. This should be a good game, and fantasy managers should have a little hesitation in starting either defense (especially the Giants) this week. However, Baltimore may be a decent streaming option.
