The Rams DST is overlooked playing in the same division as the Seahawks and 49ers, but they have been a Top 10 Fantasy unit for the past two years. In 2013, the Rams had 53 sacks, which ranked third in the NFL behind Carolina and Buffalo, with 14 interceptions, 15 fumble recoveries, six defensive touchdowns and one safety. The fumble recoveries were tied for first in the NFL with Kansas City and the six touchdowns were tied for third with Dallas. St. Louis has a dynamic return man in Tavon Austin and the Rams have elite defenders in James Laurinaitis, Robert Quinn, Chris Long, Alec Ogletree and Janoris Jenkins. We like the Rams as a No. 1 Fantasy DST again this year and they are worth drafting with a late-round pick in all leagues.
