D/ST rankings for Week 16 fantasy football

We take you through some of the best D/STs going in Week 16 for fantasy football, including a few viable streamers.

Week 16 was not a good one for D/STs, as only four hit double-digit fantasy points, with the Bills leading the way with 13. This is the same week that the Steelers faced a third-string quarterback and the Rams faced the winless Jets. But, instead of the Steelers and Rams finishing in the Top-7 D/ST scorers, it ended up being New York and Cincinnati with the good numbers. This is another reason to scrap D/ST’s in your league.

Streaming options

Buffalo Bills vs Patriots

The Bills defense has played better of late while the Patriots continue to scuffle. Buffalo has scored two defensive touchdowns in their last two games and have given up an average of just 18 points per game.

Arizona Cardinals vs 49ers

Arizona sacked Jalen Hurts six times last week and Daniel Jones eight times the week before. Nick Mullens has been giving up plenty of D/ST points this season and that shouldn’t change this week, as the Cardinals try to keep pace in the playoff race.
