Atlanta Falcon Defense - Thoughts for the year

Postby ximan » Wed Sep 06, 2006 9:02 am

So what is everyone's thought for the Falcon's D this year. I drafted yesterdayand I think they will be much improved over last year. Definitely a top 10 D.

I like Atlanta's D also but Hartwell being injured for a couple of weeks hurts them. They have to good ends who will get double digit sacks plus they added some beef with Grady Jackson up front.

i admit that we are very disappointed that hartwell is still having problems, but hopefully having 4 pro bowl linemen up front will help plug the middle. i think the overall Defense is going to be tough and should score very well for 'fantasy teams', top 5.......

I love hearing the notion of top 5 fantasy defense. I had a few strange looks when I drafted them, saying they will be lucky to break the top 20. I was able to draft them in the 10th round of a 12 team league in which of the big name defenses were already taken.

However, I did take them over TB, which should be decent also.

I have them, but I'm not to thrilled with many of their matchups in early part of the year.

They are very solid in middle of year for a good lengthy run though.

I have the Skins and the Falcons DST in my money leage. I figure the Skins to have a bit better ST (Randel El brings a couple of punts to the house this year) But the Falcons overall should be solid with their additions.
