New England hosts Los Angeles, making the Patriots DST the top fantasy option this week
Depending on league scoring, the Los Angeles Rams have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing defense/special teams this season. The Rams will be in Foxborough on Sunday to take on New England. And while the Patriots DST has had some solid and not-so-great outings, the matchup against Los Angeles and rookie quarterback Jared Goff is too tempting to pass up.
Denver has been a solid fantasy DST all season, even in defeat last week against Kansas City. Jacksonville has been a friendly matchup for DSTs and it should be no different for the Broncos on Sunday, even though they are road team. Miami has served as a nice streaming option in recent weeks and once again the Dolphins are in the top 10 because of their matchup against the Ravens.
Teams on bye: Cleveland, Tennessee
