Targeting DST options to stream in Week 13
by Chris Towers |
(11/25/2014) In his waiver-wire column Tuesday, Jamey Eisenberg names the Ravens, Rams and Bengals as the top DST streaming options for Week 13.

The Ravens have a tough matchup on the way against Philip Rivers and the Chargers, though San Diego's offense hasn't been quite up to par lately. Each of their last five opponents have managed at least 8 Fantasy points, and that dovetails nicely with the Raven's own streak of eight straight games reaching that level.

The Rams and Bengals both have better matchups on the way, as the Rams are set to take on the Raiders and the Bengals heading to Tampa to take on the Buccaneers. All three are owned in fewer than 70 percent of leagues, and should make for solid streaming options for Week 13.

Big plays on defense carry Ravens to victory
by Chris Towers |
(11/25/2014) The Ravens DST unit continued its strong play in Week 12 in a 34-27 win over the Saints.

The Saints racked up 525 yards of total offense in the game, but the Ravens came up with some big plays to make up for it. Baltimore's defense scored in the third quarter on a 44-yard interception return by Will Hill, their lone turnover of the game, and added four sacks of Saints quarterback Drew Brees.

The Ravens DST unit has scored in double figures in seven of their last eight games and had eight points in the other. The Ravens are riding high, and might be worth starting even against a tough Chargers defense in Week 13.

Saints DST continues to struggle
by Chris Towers |
(11/25/2014) The Saints DST unit's struggles continued in Week 12, as they fell to the Ravens, 34-27.

The Saints allowed the Ravens to rack up 449 yards of total offense, and could have been in for an even worse night, if the Ravens hadn't failed to score on two of their four trips to the red zone. The Ravens still managed to drop 34 points on them, though one score came on an interception return by the Ravens defense.

The Saints forced one turnover in the game, and ended up with just 3 Fantasy points, their second game in a row with that total. The Saints have failed to reach double figures in each of their last three games, a streak that could continue in Week 13 against the Steelers.
