D/ST Rankings & Streamers for Week 4 Fantasy Football

The Cleveland Browns' defense came to life in Week 3. Full D/ST rankings and top streaming options for 2021 Week 4 fantasy football.

It was another solid week for my fantasy football D/ST rankings in Week 3. Accuracy-wise I was in line with the Fantasy Pros expert average and though I missed (badly) on my DFS pick of the week in the Washington Football Team (-4 points), stream of the week in the Carolina Panthers did land you eight points to finish as the D/ST11. With even more data at hand I go again in Week 4, and will continue to post my rankings each week, and give you a team you can look to stream, plus my favorite DFS plays for the week ahead.

These rankings are subject to change throughout the week, so check back as any quarterback news drops to see how it’s reflected in my rankings. If you have any specific quarterback rankings or starts and sits questions, drop them in the comments or you can get me @PaddiCooper on Twitter.

Top Streamer of the Week

Green Bay Packers vs Pittsburgh Steelers (18% rostered) — After their Week 1 aberration against the New Orleans Saints, the Packers are gaining momentum and approaching the form that took them to the NFC title game last year. This week they face a Steelers offense that has struggled to execute this season, with the running game ranked dead last despite the drafting of Najee Harris. With the high-powered Packers’ offense likely to be the best unit on the field, it gives the Packers’ defense the green light to tee off on Ben Roethlisberger and give you an edge in your fantasy match up if you can find them on your waiver wire this week.

Alternative streamer – Miami Dolphins vs Indianapolis Colts (16% rostered)

DFS Value Play of the Week

Cleveland Browns @ Minnesota Vikings ($3,000) — Following their demolition of the Chicago Bears offense last week, the Browns defense is flying high and will be playing downhill this week against the Vikings as they look to get after Kirk Cousins. With the Browns’ run game likely to dominate the Vikings defense, I expect the Browns to get ahead early and then go hard after the Vikings’ offensive line and Cousins and cause some turnovers. A solid value play if you want to put some extra cash elsewhere in your lineup.

Alternative DFS play – Indianapolis Colts @ Miami Dolphins ($2,700)
