Welcome to the NFL DFS DST Coach, where we identify the best defenses for our DraftKings and FanDuel lineups!
What’s up y’all? It’s Week 6 of this year’s NFL regular season. If you’re new to daily fantasy, you’ll soon realize defensive production is hard to predict on a week-to-week basis. Your best option is to come up with a process you follow week in and week out. In the long run, you’ll come out on top. Let’s take a look at the team defenses that make this week’s “wish list.” Here’s a list of the “boxes” you’re looking to “check off”:
New England -9.5
New York Giants -2.5
Worst Offense Ranking from PFF.com (prior to Week 6)
New York Jets – 32
New York Giants – 31
Philadelphia Eagles – 30
Washington Football Team – 29
Denver Broncos – 28
Chicago Bears – 27
Los Angeles Chargers – 26
Pittsburgh Steelers – 25
Opponent Implied Total less than 20.0
New York Jets 19
BEST NFL DFS DEFENSES
New England Patriots (DK $4,100, FD $4,800)
Clear #1 based on the matchup, the Patriots are coming off a LONG week with an unexpected bye. The Broncos are down several starters but could have second-year starter, Drew Lock, back. Regardless, Belichick has had plenty of time to prepare for this one.
Indianapolis Colts (DK $4,000, FD $5,000)
The usual option against the Bengals in this article. Joe Burrow has been on his back a ton this rookie season, seven times last week, and the Colts should continue the trend.
Miami Dolphins (DK $2,900, FD $4,400) “Defenses against the Jets”
A much better option on DraftKings, so I expect them to be a highly-owned defense this week with the Jets coming into South Beach. The Jets are the lowest-scoring team, the NFL’s worst offense, and an overall disastrous football team.
- Baltimore Ravens (DK $4,500, FD $4,900)
- New York Giants (DK $3,200, FD $3,900)
