Top DSTs To Start in Week 12
New Orleans Saints, DST (at ATL)
News broke on Sunday morning that the Atlanta Falcons are going to move back to Desmond Ridder as their starting QB for Week 12 and beyond, which means that the New Orleans Saints instantly become an intriguing DST streaming option.
Coming off of their bye week, the Saints are going to be prepared to slow down this Falcons passing attack. Ridder’s proven that no opposing offense should be scared of facing him, and this could be a low-scoring affair to begin with due to it being division rivals. The Saints are a solid addition off of the waiver wire if someone dropped them going into their bye.
Miami Dolphins, DST (at NYJ)
The Miami Dolphins were one of my starts of the week in Week 11, and it certainly paid off with a top-five finish. The good times should continue for this unit, though, as they get to take on Tim Boyle and this anemic New York Jets offense on Black Friday.
With Jalen Ramsey roaming the back end and Jaelan Phillips and Bradley Chubb wreaking havoc on the edges, Wilson’s not going to have an answer for the pressure they send his way. Start Miami confidently.
