Three DSTs to Stream Week 6
Streaming is a fantasy football strategy that fantasy managers use when they don’t have starters on their rosters that they trust entering any particular week during the fantasy season.
When it comes to DSTs, streaming is actually a fair bit better than starting the same DST almost every week. The top-scoring DST of 2020, the LA Rams, scored 151 points. The 5th best option at DST each week (likely streaming candidates) scored 196 points. As you can see, DSTs are not about averaging the highest fantasy points per game, but it’s about hitting spike weeks from DSTs with good matchups.
Streaming DSTs is the way, and RotoHeat is here to tell you what DSTs to target every week of the 2021 NFL Fantasy Football season. These are the three DSTs to Stream Week 6.
Dallas Cowboys DST
With the first bye weeks now coming up, it’s starting to get increasingly difficult to find good DST streams that could be available, but the Cowboys make a repeat performance for Three DSTs to Stream Week 6 after giving you 9 points in Week 5, which is more than acceptable for a DST.
In Week 6, they meet the Patriots who are still looking like a team that needs to find an offensive identity and to figure out how to score points when the opponent is better than a bottom-5 NFL team. I expect Dallas to get sacks and turnovers.
Cincinnati Bengals DST
The Bengals have a date with the Lions in Week 6, and the Lions have given up 8 and 11 points to opposing DSTs over the past two weeks. The Bengals DST have been able to produce sacks, something the Lions have given up a lot of in 2021. Goff has been sacked 14 times (sixth-worst in the league) and he’s fumbled six times, losing four of them.
If the Bengals are able to get to Goff, which they should be, they could force some turnovers.
Indianapolis Colts DST
The Colts DST has been sneaky good this season. Not like 2020, where they were a top DST, but they’ve scored 10, 6, and 10 points in Weeks 2 to 4. In Week 6, they face the Texans, and the Colts DST could be the ones to make Davis Mills look like a rookie QB again.
