D/ST rankings for Week 11 fantasy football

We take you through some of the best D/STs going in Week 11 for fantasy football, including a few viable streamers.

Covid-19 update

Every game is on track to play, but the most notable news is that most of the Las Vegas Raiders’ starting defense has been placed on the Covid-19 injured reserve list due to contact tracing as high risk close contacts. They all can be cleared by game day, but they won’t be able to practice in person this week. They’re not a team to start against the Chiefs, but if you’re looking to wager on Chiefs-Raiders, this is of note.

Week 10 had some good target quarterbacks, with Nick Mullens, Drew Lock and Nick Foles helping the Saints, Raiders and Vikings to Top-4 D/ST fantasy finishes. But we also saw Ryan Tannehill and Russell Wilson’s teams land in the Top-5, as the Rams sacked Wilson six times and picked him off twice while the Colts were able to score a touchdown off a blocked punt. That kind of game is tough to predict, as Tannehill was sacked just once and didn’t turn the ball over, but the block and touchdown make up the bulk of the fantasy points.

Trying to predict special teams points will always be impossible, so spending your time looking at bad quarterbacks and offensive lines where we know the quarterback will need to pass, is always the best way to go.

Streaming options

Miami Dolphins vs. Denver Broncos

The Dolphins D/ST didn’t score a touchdown for the first time in three weeks, but they block a kick, get two sacks and an interception against the Chargers to give them a respectable eight fantasy points. This week they get a Broncos team that has allowed the most D/ST points in the league.

Cleveland Browns vs. Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles have given up the third-most D/ST points in the league, as Carson Wentz has just gone off the rails. The Browns haven’t been great defensively, but Myles Garrett has played well enough to keep them in positive numbers while the Eagles have allowed five or more fantasy points to D/STs in all but one game this season.
