This is a pretty good week for streaming options for your D/ST. Remember, your best bet is to acquire the best defense you can, but likely end up streaming 50 percent of the time.
D/ST Ranking Tiers
Dwayne Haskins hasn’t been horrible, but he hasn’t been great either. Going on the road against the Panthers is likely going to be trouble.
The Eagles front seven is tough enough to beat weak offenses like the Dolphins, who consistently give up D/ST points with Ryan Fitzpatrick at the helm.
The Bears could see the Lions third-string quarterback, but even if they don’t, Jeff Driskel isn’t 100 percent, and he threw three picks last week.
The Steelers at home in a revenge-filled game against the Browns could end up with D/ST points coming out of their shoulder pads.
The Jets were a little unlucky to get Andy Dalton instead of Ryan Finley, but Dalton is still quite awful.
The Patriots and Ravens get tough matchups but have been playing well enough to keep riding them in Week 13.
Many of the top plays this week could be found on the waiver wire, like the Eagles, Panthers, and Jets.
The Lions and Browns both face weak quarterbacks and could capitalize.
