Whats everyones defensive picks

Postby ttwarrior1 » Mon Aug 13, 2007 11:56 pm

Im looking at chicago's schedule and just don't see them getting the lucky d touchdowns last year like against arizona or other teams kicking to hester.

2. Baltimore is overrated in my opinion and lost a couple players and won't get the d td's as well

3. No idea why but im listing SD as the #1 D as of right now
4. I also see pitt bouncing back as their new coach is a d coach from minnesota.

I also have San Diego ranked as the top defense...

I still like Baltimore the best. I agree on CHicago, no way Hester gets 6 TD's again. I remember when Dante Hall was taking all kinds of kicks/punts back for the Chiefs a few years back, then he disappeared off the face of the map. Return TD's are a fluky thing, and I don't see Chicago repeating last year's performance. Having said that, I do still think the Bears will be one of the top D's, just not as good as last year.

I like Baltimore's and New England's D's the best, followed by San Diego and then Chicago.

I would go with any of the top 3 but would rather have Chicago (first) then Baltimore, followed by San Diego. Both Dallas & Minnesota are sneaky picks later if you are too late picking one of these defenses up. There is a big enough decline in points from the top 3 defenses so picking the fourth too early is kinda counterintuitive into making a solid fantasy roster.

Well, it's pretty easy to tell who the top Ds are gonna be. Chicago, Baltimore.. People aren't gonna disagree much about that. But the guys that I like who go in the later rounds are Jacksonville and Minnesota. I've always liked the Jags D and thought they've been a bit underrated. Not an amazing schedule but they do get Houston and Titans twice each plus Oakland and Tampa. Not too shabby.

Minnesota I've also felt has been underrated. They had an awesome rush D last year and should have a very stout D this year. An improved offense may actually help them. GBay and Detroit are turnover machines (2x each), they got Oakland and they got Atlanta who are gonna absolutely suck this year (unfortunately :-t ).

If you're looking just at schedules then Carolina probably would be a decent pick too. They play in probably the worst division in football now with Tampa (ewww) and Atlanta (my pick for worst team in the league this year). Plus they get Houston, Tennessee and GBay to top it off.
