DST Matchups to target Week 11: It kills me to say it, but the Denver Broncos are a trainwreck this season.  Even in a game where the offense looked adequate against the Patriots the Broncos managed to give up 13 fantasy points to the New England DST thanks to special teams errors (dropped punt and allowing a kickoff return for a TD).  The Cincinnati Bengals draw the top overall matchup this week against the Broncos lackluster offense and is  a good bet to exceed value.

DST Matchups to avoid Week 11: If you’re a Minnesota Vikings owner it may be time to find a DST off the waiver wire.  The Los Angeles Rams are looking like the greatest show on turf this season and are putting up points in bunches.

  1. Are you adjusting these for injuries, i.e. looking at the last few games for particular teams? I suspect GB points against average are worse for the last few games vs. full season.
    Ravens at GB is a must start IMO, given Hundley as starting QB, and seems to be hobbled with a hammy.

    1. They are not adjusted for injury, only based on season long fantasy points allowed so you are correct that you have to take recent injuries into account. BAL is a terrific play this week
