Welcome to the D/ST rankings and streamers for Week 13 fantasy football.
It was a great week for fantasy defenses in Week 12, with a massive ten teams scoring more than 10 fantasy points. The week was led by the Dolphins, who scored 21 points in defeating the Panthers thanks to 5 sacks, 3 interceptions and a defensive touchdown. Just behind the Dolphins were the Bengals, who scored a season-high 19 points as they dominated the Steelers and held onto their standing as the current 5 seed in the AFC. The Bengals were my top streaming option for Week 12, so were a brilliant play if you made it. My DFS play of the week was not such a brilliant play as the Panthers scored 3 points and finished the as the DST25 of Week 12.
I go again in Week 13 to bring you my D/ST rankings for the next round of matchups. I will continue to post my rankings each week, give you a team you can look to stream, and my favorite DFS plays for the week ahead. We have just four teams on bye this week, so that means no Packers, Titans, Browns or Panthers in the rankings for Week 13.
These rankings are subject to change throughout the week, so check back as any news drops to see how it’s reflected in my rankings. If you have any specific DST starts and sits questions, drop them in the comments or you can get me @PaddiCooper on Twitter.
Stream of the Week: Kansas City Chiefs vs Denver Broncos (19% rostered)
After a rough start to the season, the Chiefs defense has been on the rise in recent weeks and are nearly up to league average in my team NEFF Rankings. Coming off a bye and playing at home against my 21st ranked offense in the Broncos, the Chiefs should score well as they look to consolidate their position at the top of the AFC West.
Alternative streamer – New York Giants @ Miami Dolphins (3% rostered)
DFS Play of the Week: Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($3,500) @ Atlanta Falcons
The Bucs are my DST1 for Week 13 so when you see them priced reasonably at $3,500 then I’m all over them this week. The Falcons are dead last in points allowed to fantasy DSTs so its a no brainer play.
Alternative DFS play – Miami Dolphins ($3,300) vs New York Giants
