Von Miller/Denver Broncos: Defense/Special Teams (DST) Rankings Week 7

In Week 6, a whopping 10 different teams scored defensive touchdowns, which is good if you were one of the lucky fantasy owners to benefit from that gift from your defense/special teams (DST). Unfortunately, the top-ranked Denver DST was not one of them, thus proving that anything can happen on any given Sunday.

In fact, many fantasy owners did not even start (or own) the New Orleans Saints DST, who scored three defensive touchdowns and led all DSTs infantasy points for Week 6.

As for Week 7, just two teams (Detroit, Houston) on bye. For those looking to stream DSTs, don't bite on New Orleans. The Tennessee Titans are ranked in the top 10 for this week, facing Cleveland. Regardless of who the quarterback is for the Browns, the Titans (available in 31 percent of Yahoo! leagues) should be a solid streaming option.
