And like that, it’s back. A pandemic restricted offseason, a shortened training camp and no preseason games. Should make ranking the 32 NFL team defenses and special teams for fantasy easy, right? Maybe not but I’m back to bring you my weekly DST rankings to help those of you who like to stream your defenses on a weekly basis gain that edge to win your vital weekly match ups. I’ll bring you my full rankings and highlight those teams I’m classing as my top streaming option for the week based on the owned %.
Week 1 Top Streaming Option: Philadelphia Eagles @ Washington
The Eagles defense has been bolstered this offseason at all three levels, with special attention paid to bringing in new talent in the back end, including acquiring a shutdown corner in Darius Slay. Jim Schwarz always brings a fearsome pass rush and facing a Washington team that is lacking both talent and bodies on both the offensive line and in the skill positions, its a lopsided match up to take advantage of. At just 40% owned, they are available in the majority of leagues so get you some Eagles and fly into a Week 1 win.
