1. What does DST stand for?

Daylight Saving Time

DST is an acronym for daylight saving time, which signifies that clocks are advanced 1 hour ahead during the spring and summer time. It is also known as the time when clocks "spring ahead" (because it begins in the spring) and we lose an hour of sleep.

DST is used throughout most of the U.S. and scattered countries around the world. Clocks are set back 1 hour after DST ends in the fall. This is also known as "falling back" an hour because it ends in the fall and we gain an hour of sleep.

2. What does DST stand for in fantasy football?

Defense and Special Teams

DST is a fantasy football acronym for a team's defense and special teams. It is different than the DEF term since it also includes the play of the special teams unit (these teams return punts and kick-offs)

A DST can score points for your team in various ways, including posting shutouts, making interceptions and fumble recoveries, getting sacks, and scoring touchdowns (returns after a turnover or a return of a punt or kick-off). On the flip side, if the DST plays poorly and lets up many points, the punt returner loses a fumble, etc., they may get negative points for your team.

Fantasy football leagues differ on whether they include play from just the DEF or the special teams, too (DST). It's up to you and the rest of the teams to choose how you want to play.
