What do NaVorro Bowman and the 49ers DST have in store for an encore following Week's 1 shutout of the Rams?
The Los Angeles Rams defense/special teams (DST), which was one of the most appealing fantasy options for Week 1, put up zero points in a 28-0 loss to San Francisco on Monday night. Now the Rams face Seattle on the road in Week 2. Meanwhile, the Seahawks DST did its job last week against Miami, collecting five sacks and blocking a kick, and it's safe to say that the Dolphins' offense is better than Los Angeles' attack, even with Todd Gurley in the backfield. That is why for the second straight week Seattle checks in as the No. 1 fantasy DST.
As Week 1 showed, it may take a few games before we get an idea of which defenses are good and how reliable certain DSTs will be fantasy-wise. Until then, these rankings are based on Week 1 performances.
Here are the rest of the DST rankings for Week 2:
