The Steelers managed just 282 yards of total offense against the Chiefs defense, but reached the red zone four times and scored on each trip. The Chiefs sacked Ben Roethlisberger just once, and failed to come away with a single turnover en route to 7 Fantasy points in the loss.
The Chiefs have managed to score in double figures in Fantasy points just once in the last six games, and have another tough matchup on the way in Week 17 against the Chargers.

The Chiefs DST hasn't been an especially productive Fantasy unit this season, mostly because of a lack of big plays. This game was only its second in seven with double-digit Fantasy points. With an unfavorable matchup Week 16 at Pittsburgh, you can leave it for someone else.
The Chiefs allowed the Cardinals to score just one touchdown in the game, holding them to field goals on three drives, including one that got into the red zone. They allowed 366 yards of total offense, but failed to come up with many big plays, sacking Drew Stanton just twice while coming away with no turnovers.
The Chiefs DST unit ended the game with just 6 Fantasy points, their fourth straight in single figures. Things should get easier for them in Week 15, with the Raiders on the schedule.
It could have been worse for the
Altogether, it was a poor showing for a defense that also failed to capitalize on a favorable matchup Week 12 at Oakland. And after losing star defensive back Eric Berry for the year, it won't be playing at full strength the rest of the way.
Even with another favorable matchup Week 14 at the Cardinals, who have been starting Drew Stanton at quarterback with Carson Palmer down, the Chiefs DST is a questionable option in Fantasy.
