I was in 4 leagues last year and none of the winners had those defenses.
Dallas is a cheap defense you want this year. Wade Phillips is doing the scheming there now. He is going to give Roy Williams the opportunity to be a play maker he can be and less of a coverage guy which is where he is weaker as well as make some other scheming changes to the D. There are alot of talented guys there. They just need a coach that will use their strengths to give them the opportunity to succeed.

Most leagues finish up after (16) weeks, are you really telling me that $16.00 is too much to spend to play DBBC, which is proven to be the most effective way to play the position?
As I have for the past (4) years, I won my most important league by playing a different defense every week, and had the highest scoring at the position over the course of the season...
AND I didn't burn a draft pick, much less a mid-round draft pick on a defense...
I finished the season with the Chiefs as my D... In week 15 I had the Rams, and they shut-out Oakland...
In my league your FA moves go up each time you use one. They go like this...
1st-free 2nd-$2 3rd-$4 4th-$6 and so on all the way up to $30 for the 16th move.
So, in the end it would cost someone in my league $240 to change their defense each week. For a league that has an entrance fee of $50 + CBSSportline fee thats a hefty price to pay for FAs.
We have to draft 2 DSTs and use them based on matchups. Last year I was able to draft well enough to not have to use my free FA move on a player and I did use my free FA move to pick up a DST that was playing a couple bad offensive teams for the playoffs.
