The Top DSTs To Start in Week 17

Buffalo Bills (vs. NE)

Analysis by Kyle Soppe | The Buffalo Bills’ defense entered the season as a perceived strength, and we are finally trending back in that direction.

They’ve showcased a reasonable fantasy floor as of late with at least six fantasy points in five of their past six games, including three straight at home.

While they battle for playoff seeding, the New England Patriots are just looking to play out the string.

If this Bills offense can apply pressure on the Patriots as I expect, we could see a repeat performance of Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys, a game in which the script allowed the Bills D/ST to overachieve in the fantasy department (11 fantasy points).

Jacksonville Jaguars (vs. CAR)

Analysis by Jason Katz | I must give credit where it’s due. The Carolina Panthers played far better than anyone could’ve anticipated last week. They made the Green Bay Packers quite the poor start in fantasy, but that doesn’t mean we completely shy away from attacking them

Bryce Young is still taking 3.8 sacks per game. He’s also turned the ball over 14 times.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are at home and desperately need to put a stop to their four-game losing streak.

A big defensive effort against one of the worst offenses in the league coming off an anomalous performance is exactly what the doctor ordered.
