The Top DSTs To Start in Week 6
Detroit Lions (vs. TB)
The Lions’ defense is quickly becoming a unit to be feared in the NFL. While it hasn’t translated into top-five fantasy finishes every single week at the DST spot, Detroit’s defense is getting the job done.

With a matchup this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Lions should be able to keep the run game in check. As long as they can contain Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, the Lions should be able to do enough to finish as a solid start yet again.
Las Vegas Raiders (vs. NE)
It’s not a pretty start, but fantasy managers are dealing with bye weeks and some tough matchups for their other defenses. Right now, the Patriots’ offense can’t move the ball at all, and Josh McDaniels knows this opposing personnel and their weaknesses pretty well.
You may have to close your eyes as you put them into your starting lineup, but the Raiders’ defense isn’t a bad streaming option in Week 6.
