It may be a gamble, but the Miami defense/special teams is the No. 1-ranked fantasy DST for Week 12. Last week, the Dolphins were a popular streaming option against Los Angeles and although they didn’t rack up the fantasy points, they did a decent job overall, giving up just 10 points. But those who take their chances with the Miami DST again this week against San Francisco certainly hope the Dolphins can do more damage than just one sack and a takeaway.

The Tennessee Titans (at Chicago) and the New York Giants (at Cleveland) are popular streaming options this week, as both are available in at least 50 percent of leagues. The Titans get a Bears offense that has been decimated in a little more than a week because of a suspension to Alshon Jeffery and an injury to Jay Cutler, while the Giants’ matchup against the Browns should speak for itself.
