2020 Fantasy Football Rankings: Defenses for Week 3

DSTs ranked for Week 3 of the NFL season.

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Indianapolis Colts Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Two weeks down and though we’ve seen some solid defensive peformances from a fantasy standpoint, there hasn’t been a truly game-changing score that would have been a clear match up winner. As in Week 1, the top fantasy score this week was the 15 points scored by both the Ravens and Colts as they both ran out easy winners, with solid scores from the Buccaneers (14 points), Steelers (13), Bears and Packers (both 12) that would have helped your fantasy team. Fingers crossed you ignored me ranking the Cowboys in 9th, as they were one of the four teams who would have put a dent in your Week 2 hopes as they returned you negative points this week, (the Eagles, Bengals and Lions were the others).

Week 3 Top Streaming Option: Indianapolis Colts vs New York Jets (43% owned)

After providing you with a top 10 streaming option in the Rams last week, I’m looking to keep it rolling with the Colts in Week 3 as they face one of the league’s worst offenses in the Jets. The Colts smothered the rudderless Vikings in Week 2 and with the injuries on the offensive side stacking up for the Jets, The Colts are not just a great option at less than 50% owned, but could easily finish this week as the top scoring defense in fantasy.
