No.
DRS is only available to enterprise and Enterprise Plus:

That said, unless you need automatic balancing of VMs to Hosts it is not as critical as you may think. If it is a small infrastructure and you dont mind keeping an eye on the resource usage then standard is perfectly acceptable.

You still get the reliability of high availability, you just have to manually balance which VM goes on which host.
