2017 Outlook: Ravens DST

The Ravens DST finished as a top 10 unit in Fantasy last year, but it took 18 interceptions and 17 forced fumbles to get the job done. The Ravens didn't return a single kick or punt for a touchdown and had just one defensive touchdown all season. It's going to be harder for the Ravens to repeat this feat -- top-tackling linebacker Zach Orr's retirement and questions about the pass rush opposite Terrell Suggs will keep the Ravens from being a trusted Fantasy option. Tony Jefferson's arrival gives the Ravens a great safety tandem, and Jimmy Smith at cornerback is always a good thing (at least on paper). Maybe they're worth taking a leap of faith in because the Ravens' track record is pretty good in Fantasy, but owners should feel more comfortable going in another direction.
