DSTs ranked for Week 6 of the NFL season.

There was a runaway top-scoring DST in Week 5 as the Baltimore Ravens were dominant as they overran the Cincinnati Bengals’ offensive line, totaling seven sacks, two fumbles (one returned for a touchdown), and interception and just three points allowed. All that adds up to 26 points for the Ravens, which would have been match up winning for you last week.

My stream of the week, the Arizona Cardinals returned a steady week for you, finishing as the DST12 with seven points. On watching the game, the match up was the right choice against the Jets, but the Cardinals defense is hardly a dominant outfit, as they managed three sacks but no turnovers, but managed to hold the Jets to just 10 points.

Now here’s some real value for you. Only one in 20 teams currently has the Dolphins’ defense rostered, but after putting up 12 fantasy points on the road against the 49ers, they face one of the league’s poorest offenses at home and are primed to deliver another strong performance. The Dolphins’ defense is currently 9th in fantasy scoring and are an uncut gem to invest in for the rest of the fantasy season.
