HELP! Which Defenses have weak schedules? WHIR

Postby drnick5 » Fri Aug 19, 2011 11:22 am

Hey guys,

I'm in a 12 team league where defense actually matters. You LOSE points for every point your defense gives up and for every 10 yards your defense gives up. We use a $106 dollar salary cap to buy players at auction. the past few years I tried to only spend a few bucks on defense and play the matchups... but this year I want to spend $10-$12 on a top defense and not have to worry about it. I need some help on which defense to go after...

Here is our defensive scoring: (note the sliding scales... the more yards and points you give up, the more points you lose per yard or DPA)

Defensive points Against (DPA)
0 - 6 DPAs = -.05 points for every 1 DPA
7 - 13 DPAs = -.2 points for every 1 DPA
14 - 20 DPAs = -.5 points for every 1 DPA
21 - 29 DPAs = -1 point for every 1 DPA
30 - 39 DPAs = -1.5 points for every 1 DPA
40+ DPAs = -2 points for every 1 DPA

Yards Allowed:
0 - 50 YDSs = -.05 points for every 10 YDSs
51 - 100 YDSs = -.25 points for every 10 YDSs
101 - 150 YDSs = -.45 points for every 10 YDSs
151 - 200 YDSs = -.65 points for every 10 YDSs
201 - 250 YDSs = -.85 points for every 10 YDSs
251 - 300 YDSs = -1.05 points for every 10 YDSs
301 - 350 YDSs = -1.25 points for every 10 YDSs
351 - 400 YDSs = -1.5 points for every 10 YDSs
401 - 500 YDSs = -1.75 points for every 10 YDSs
501+ YDSs = -2 points for every 10 YDSs

Your defense can gain points for doing the following:
Defensive Fumble Recovered +3 points
Defensive Fumble Recovery Yards: 0+ DFRYds = +1 point for every 10 DFRYds
Defensive TD +7 points
Forced Fumble +3 points
Interception +6 points
Interception Yards 0+ IntYds = +1 point for every 10 IntYds
Sack +2 points
Safety +9 points

some defenses were kept form last year, here are the remaining ones. I figure the top defenses (bears and jets) will probably go for $15 or more... which is more then I'd like to spend. so im looking for sort of a sleeper (a good defense that has an easy schedule to make them a great defense). here are the defenses in order to how they finished last year: post a link and I'll help with your post!

Bears
Jets
Saints
Ravens
Giants
Rams
Dolphins
Buccs
Chiefs
vikings
49ers
Lions
Eagles
Browns

I'd shoot for the Ravens.

They are 2nd overall in strength of schedule next to Arizona.

Baltimore has always been known as a defensive team, and the fact that on paper they look to have a cake schedule this year makes them my choice.

The eagles figure to improve greatly this year, I'd target them. As a super sleeper, the Texans' defense improved a lot this offseason as well. I'd take a flier on them!

Thanks for the help guys,


also, I guess I'll add that once we buy a player (or defense) at auction, we can sign them for up to 5 years at their current sallary. (signing happen after the auction but before the season starts)

Any suggestion on a team that may be ok now but in a year or 2 will be a top defense? (I don't follow college football much, so I have no idea how teams did in the draft)
