Three DSTs to Stream Week 7
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 7.
Arizona Cardinals DST (vs. Texans)
With 6 teams on a bye this week, finding streaming defenses might be harder than usual. However, chances are that the Cardinals DST was dropped in Week 6 because of their difficult match-up with the Browns.
As a result, you could get a great play at your DST position this week by picking them up.
New Orleans Saints DST (vs. Seahawks)
Coming off a bye week and playing backup QB Geno Smith, the Saints DST are back to being a very good play in Week 7.
The team should be mostly healthy, which can’t be said for the Seahawks, who are without several offensive starters (Wilson and Carson).
Carolina Panthers DST (vs. Giants)
After starting the season 3-0 and playing very good defense, the Panthers have been regressing quite a bit, but in Week 7 they get a match-up with the Giants, which could be exactly what the doctor ordered.
The Giants just gave up a massive performance to the Rams DST. We shouldn’t expect a similar performance by the Panthers, but a good fantasy performance is in the cards for the Panthers DST.
