Defense and TE help needed: WHIR guaranteed!

Postby woowoo crew » Wed Nov 28, 2012 10:31 pm

(1) I have Houston's defense, and they've been really good. But the match-up with TEN isn't great, and they have a lot of injuries right now. So do I roll with them anyway or go for one of these options:

BUF vs. JAX (JAX gives up 5th most pts. to defenses)
NE vs. MIA (MIA gives up 9th most pts. NE defense has put up big numbers in my league the last 3 weeks. Have top points right now of all defenses)
ARZ vs. Jets (Jets give up 3rd most pts)
CIN vs SD (Chargers give up 7th most points)

*I wanted to pick up Jets or Dallas this week, but my opponent grabbed both!

(2) Vernon Davis or Dallas Clark (Denver is very friendly to tight ends, and Clark has been a focal point the last few weeks. STL is stingier. I need the most points here... which guy??)

Advice and input needed please. Leave a link and I will return the favor!

I'd stick with Houston over those options

Thanks for your response on my thread, here's my return favor:

1) How desperately do you need this week's win? If we are looking longterm, I would ditch the Texan D (vs Brady and Luck in first two playoff weeks) and actually go with the Bills as they look to have the easiest schedule than the other choices

2) Vernon Davis didn't seem to connect with Kaepernick last week, but probably cause Kaepernick didn't need him against a sucky NO D. He also dominated the Bears the week before. Denver might be friendly to TEs but I think Freeman will still be looking for Vjax and Williams, or run with Doug Martin a lot. My pick would be Vernon Davis, chances are he'll have plenty of opportunity if the SF D can shut down the rams like they did to the bears and the saints, and the TB/Den game to me will just be a shootout to the WRs.

I also agree with the previous posts; roll with Texans and Davis.

Thanks for mine.

I'd go with the Texans D & Vernon Davis too, though Clark is seeing more work come his way as of late (just something to think about as Romo becomes more desperate in the wildcard chase). If you are determined to go with another defense, I give some consideration to Arizona b/c the Jets are utterly hapless on offense.

Help me?

The Patriots defense has been solid all year forcing many turnovers. What helps them is that their offense jumps out to early leads and the defense can take chances and blitz the QB more or jump the receivers routes to go for the int. I would go with them against the Dolphins. Plus they have the 9er's @ home week 15 and the Jags week 16. Pretty good matchups if you ask me. At Te I would go V. Davis. He will get the ball this week.

here's mine
