San Francisco has scored more than 20 points four times so far this year, which is why the 49ers have been a popular target when it comes to choosing a defense/special teams (DST) option in fantasy. They have allowed opposing DSTs to score plenty of fantasy points (fifth most in the league), and this week’s opponent is Arizona. The Cardinals have struggled on defense in recent weeks, but they are coming off of their bye and should fare well against a team they feasted on (seven sacks, three takeaways, safety) back in Week 5.
The Baltimore DST is available in more than half of fantasy leagues right now, and the Ravens have one of the more appealing matchups in Week 10, home against Cleveland on Thursday night. The Browns are clearly struggling on offense, and a short week isn’t going to help them. Cleveland is giving up the third-most fantasy points to DST, so Baltimore makes for a great streaming option this week.
Teams on bye: Buffalo, Detroit, Indianapolis, Oakland
