D/ST rankings for Week 6 fantasy football

We take you through some of the best D/STs going in Week 6 for fantasy football, including a few viable streamers.

Friday AM update

Friday morning saw the Indianapolis Colts close their facility due to multiple positive Covid-19 tests. They are working to confirm those positives and figure out next steps. We’ll keep an eye out for more information on the game status.

Last week we had five D/ST’s get into double-digit fantasy points, but the Ravens were by far the cream of the crop, as they completely stifled Joey Burrow and the Bengals. They sacked him seven times, recovered two fumbles, secured an interception and scored a touchdown while giving up just a field goal. And this week they face an Eagles team that has not looked good.

The Dolphins were the surprise of the week though, as they picked off Jimmy Garoppolo twice and recorded five sacks. This Miami defense continues to show a little promise and in good matchups might be worth streaming. Oh, and they get the Jets this weekend.

Bye weeks

Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints, Las Vegas Raiders, Los Angeles Chargers are all on their bye.

There are some worthwhile defenses in there, but none that you are going to be sick about losing this week. Grab a streamable option and let them loose.

Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins took it to the 49ers last week and now face a Jets team that could have Joe Flacco at quarterback once again. The Jets will also be without Le’Veon Bell, who they just released.

Washington Football Team

The Washington D/ST has been bad despite a hot start with eight sacks against the Eagles in Week 1. But, they get to face Daniel Jones, who has been abysmal this season. We can’t expect huge numbers from them, but Chase Young should be able to get some traction against the Giants poor offensive line.
