by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (12:06 pm ET) The Seahawks DST has scored less than 10 Fantasy points just twice in 13 games this season, including a Week 14 loss at San Francisco. Seattle hits the road again Week 15 at N.Y. Giants, but the chances of the Seahawks DST being held to less than 10 points for a second straight week are slim.
DSTs are averaging 15.9 Fantasy points per week against the Giants, which is the highest average. Only two DSTs have scored less than 10 Fantasy points and no DST has had less than eight points against New York.
The Giants have been very inconsistent on offense this season and that bodes well for Seattle, who has one of the best defenses in the NFL. The Giants should be a much easier opponent than the 49ers, so if you own the Seahawks DST, then make sure to start them Week 15.

The Seahawks DST turned out to be among the best units in 2012, and they should continue to produce at a high level this season. The Seahawks were No. 3 in Fantasy points in standard leagues last year with 36 sacks, 13 fumble recoveries, 18 interceptions and six defensive touchdowns. They scored at least 16 Fantasy points seven times, including 45 points in Week 14 against the Cardinals. The Seahawks reached double digits in Fantasy points in all but four games, and they should be dominant again. We consider the Seahawks DST a No. 1 option in all leagues, and they are worth drafting with a late-round pick. (Updated 4/26/13)
