Ranking the Week Six defensive matchups
The Lions and Saints are on bye this week. Neither of these DSTs should hurt your chances of winning this week. In other weeks however, losing your DST to a bye can force you to make a tough decision. There are very few DSTs t,hat I will roster through their bye week. You usually can find a solid one on the waiver wire to get you through the remainder of the season. I don’t like to roster two DSTs, not unless I have a dead roster spot. I don’t want to release a backup WR or RB just to protect my DST. I also don’t want to spend FAAB money to pick up a DST through the bye week. Not unless that DST that I’ll be claiming is one I’m planning on keeping through the ROS and even then, I’m not spending more than a few dollars.
As always, the top of this list are teams to make sure you start players against, while the bottom are defenses you want to start.
