Stream Alert: DST START – Chicago Bears Team Defense at Detroit Lions

Opposing defenses have failed to reach at least 7.0 fantasy points against the Lions three times. The Lions have not scored over 19 points since Week 1. The Bears DST has performed well against AFC North opponents recently, and they sacked Jared Goff four times back in Week 4. There should be confidence starting the Bears this week and an effort to ditch them before Week 13 rolls around.

DST START – Dallas Cowboys Team Defense vs. Las Vegas Raiders

Led by young players like Micah Parsons and Trevon Diggs, the Cowboys defense will be catching a Raiders team that is struggling. Not having a player to stretch the field has stifled the passing offense. Derek Carr is not utilizing players like Kenyan Drake and they are not running the ball enough with Josh Jacobs. Carr cannot stay away from the turnovers either. He has interceptions in all but two games this year. He’s thrown multiple scores in just one of his last three games and there are no signs of it getting any better soon. But all of this is good, for owners of the Cowboys defense.

DST SIT – New Orleans Saints Team Defense vs. Buffalo Bills

Like many of you out there, Week 12 begins the suspicion of the Bills. Did we give them too much hype or too long a leash to be more critical of their inconsistency. At least so we could have foreseen them getting blown out in Week 11? Could lightning strike twice? Absolutely, New Orleans has at times, played a strong defensive game. They beat the Bucs by coming up with one of their best defensive performances.

Lately though, they’ve struggled mightily to keep their opponents down in score. Only three opponents have been held under 22.0 points. Since that Bucs game, they’ve been lit up in three straight losses to the hapless Falcons, the depleted Titans and last week got buzzsawed by the Eagles. We expect the Saints to protect home but we’re talking about an angry Bills team that has a lot of talent to account for, certainly more than the Eagles.

On Bye: Arizona Cardinals, Kansas City Chiefs
