Week 17 could mean we see the Kansas City Chiefs, Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills rest some of their defensive starters, as they don’t have much to play for. But, if you are looking for D/ST’s who will play all out, here are the teams who need wins this weekend: Cardinals, Rams, Colts, Titans, Bears, Cowboys, Giants, Browns, Dolphins, Ravens, Buccaneers, Saints, Seahawks, Packers and Washington.

Streaming options

New England Patriots vs. Jets

The Patriots defense isn’t great, but targeting the Jets with your D/ST is usually been a profitable plan. Sam Darnold has completed just 58.8 percent of his passes for eight touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Minnesota Vikings vs. Lions

Stafford wants to play on his sprained ankle, but the team should nix that idea. As long as he’s out, the Vikings have a good shot at putting up D/ST points against Chase Daniel. We saw what the Lions offense could do without Matthew Stafford last week and it was pretty ugly.
