Savvy fantasy football managers pay attention to every edge, and with these Week 5 fantasy DST rankings, you have an opportunity to do that!

Fantasy football managers often stream the defense/special team slot, as it is the most matchup-based position we have. The production is tough to project, but you can put yourself in a better position to realize the upside, and my Week 5 fantasy DST rankings aim to help you do just that.

The Top DSTs To Start in Week 5

Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers

We’ve seen a pair of strong performances from the Baltimore Ravens DST this season, and a third could be in order against a Pittsburgh Steelers team with questions under center.

This offense was built around developing Kenny Pickett, so with him banged up, this offense could sputter in a major way, opening the door for an elite defensive performance.

New Orleans Saints DST at New England Patriots

The New Orleans Saints defense has scored at least nine fantasy points in three of four games, and if their offense can get on track with a healthier Derek Carr, I like them to add to that total with Mac Jones playing catchup.

This New England Patriots offense is in the bottom seven in both yards per rush and yards per pass, flaws that should allow the Saints to ramp up the aggression.
