The Cardinals DST continues to be among the best Fantasy units for the past two years. They were No. 11 in Fantasy points in 2012 and No. 6 last season. The unit produced 47 sacks, 20 interceptions, 10 fumble recoveries, five touchdowns and two safeties. That's consecutive seasons with 20-plus interceptions, 10-plus fumble recoveries and 38-plus sacks. The NFC West is loaded with quality DST options since the Seahawks (No. 1), 49ers (No. 5) and Rams (No. 7) joined the Cardinals as Top 10 options. We expect the Cardinals DST to remain an elite Fantasy option, and they are worth drafting as a No. 1 unit in all formats.
