2020 Fantasy Football Rankings: Defenses for Week 10

DSTs ranked for Week 9 of the NFL season.

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Another success in Week 9 where the New York Giants as my top streaming option returned you the DST4 fantasy score against the Washington Football Team. Five total turnovers (three interceptions, two forced fumbles) along with a pair of sacks helped the Giants to their second win of the season (both over Washington), and continued to cement the Giants’ defense as a top 10 fantasy defense in 2020.

The top fantasy defense of Week 9 went to the Saints as they held Tom Brady and the Buccaneers to just three points and intercepted him three times to finish with 16 fantasy points. We also saw double digit fantasy points from the Ravens (14), Titans (14) and Bills (12) as their defenses stepped up to secure victories for each of their franchises last week.

Week 10 Top Streaming Option: Miami Dolphins vs vs Los Angeles Chargers (32% rostered)

I’m picking the Dolphins again as they continue to be criminally under rostered despite being the DST4 in 2020. Facing a Chargers team travelling East, the Dolphins are set up well to give Justin Herbert and the LA offense problems. Despite allowing the 17th most yards, the Dolphins are a top five team in points allowed (4th) and turnovers (4th), plus they have a pair of defensive touchdowns and a punt return touchdowns on the season. At under a third owned, the Dolphins are a steal this week to give your team a boost with the fantasy playoffs just around the corner.
