Week 16: DST

NFL: OCT 02 Patriots at RaidersFor those of you who are stuck with a BYE week and need to find a DST off waivers, or for those of you who wisely play waivers for a DST every week and play the matchups…we have compiled every DST and have developed a “Rating” to help you pick the best one.

* If you donate this week, we add your email to our “Daily Fantasy” email list on Saturdays during the fantasy season. This repeats every week until the last email Week 15.

The Rating is pretty easy to understand. We determine the average weekly score based these year to date averages (see score legend below):

  • Yards Allowed
  • Points Allowed
  • Sacks
  • Interceptions
  • Fumbles Lost

Then we compare that to the similar year to date averages in the same category for the offense they face this week.

NEW in 2015:
“Favored” means Vegas is favoring that team to win, a great variable for fantasy DST success
“Home/Away” where “Home” teams are a great variable for fantasy DST success

The Rankings are in order of BEST DST to start this week, #1-#32. Pretty simple.
