Top DSTs To Start in Week 13

New York Jets (vs. ATL)

It feels ridiculous to point out the New York Jets as a DST to look at streaming this week, given how bad this team looks right now, but a matchup against Desmond Ridder could just be what the doctor ordered.

Ridder continues to turn the ball over in spectacularly awful ways and this offense will have a cap as long as he is the QB. The Jets can still get home to the QB and create pressure, so we could see a solid day here from a fantasy standpoint for this unit.

Los Angeles Rams (vs. CLE)

The Los Angeles Rams defense hasn’t exactly been a top-tier unit this season, but they may be viewed as a very solid start this week going up against the Cleveland Browns offense that very well may be starting P.J. Walker.

Walker has proven that he should not be viewed in the top-32 QB conversation in the NFL time and time again. Subsequently, we could see multiple turnovers here for this defense. Even if Dorian Thompson-Robinson makes it back from his injury in time for this matchup, the Rams should still be viewed as a solid start.
