Defense/Special Teams Rankings Week 7: Malik Hooker/Indianapolis Colts

Only three fantasy defense/special teams (DSTs) for Week 6 scored touchdowns, but that didn't seem to matter if you started the Baltimore Ravens. Somehow they recorded 11 sacks, which is the same amount as Minnesota, Jacksonville, Houston and the Los Angeles Rams collected — combined. The Ravens' defense is good, but facing New Orleans in Week 7, they probably won't repeat as he No. 1 DST.

While the teams on a bye aren't the top DST's, many fantasy owners may still be looking to stream one. The best streaming option for Week 7 is the Indianapolis Colts. While the Colts aren't a great defense, they are facing the Buffalo Bills, who are going to be without quarterback Josh Allen. While it's not clear who the starter will be, Nathan Peterman has a knack for throwing the ball to the other team. The Bills recently signed Derek Anderson, who may not be a better option than Peterman, but it's a good matchup for the Colts DST either way.
