The Steelers' D/ST finished 21st in fantasy points last season, which is the unit's worst finish in well over a decade. The fall was a bit of a shock after Pittsburgh finished second in both 2019 and 2020 and it came despite the defense leading the NFL in sacks for the fifth consecutive season. The big dip was related to a major drop in terms of yardage allowed (24th), points allowed (21st) and INTs (15th), which were all categories the Steelers finished top five in the prior two seasons. Most of the team's core (led by stars T.J. Watt, Cameron Heyward and Minkah Fitzpatrick) and Myles Jack and Levi Wallace were added. This is a fringe top-10 fantasy unit.
