Week 3 D/ST to pick up?

Postby HotHandz305 » Wed Sep 21, 2011 2:26 am

So just like in Week 2 I am a believer that the best way to approach DEF/ST is to pick up the best availble for the week unless you own a top 3 DEF.

In week 2 I dropped ATL def in favor of picking up DET def. Atl put up 5 pts vs Phi where as Det put up 21 vs KC.

I will list teams that are most commonly available in all leagues to help others. The ones I post are either projected high by yahoo, projected high by ESPN, or I project high.

-Atl @ TB
-Det @ Min
-SF @ Cin
-NYG @ Phi
-Ari @ Sea
-Car vs Jax
-Mia @ Cle
-Ten vs Den
-Cin vs SF
-Cle vs Mia

Of these teams listed here are my top 4 picks.
#1 Atl @ TB - This team may be of the ones most likely not widely available. I like the Atl def and TB is a decent offense but not great in my opinion due to incosistency.
#2 Det @ Min - We all know Det has improved greatly defense wise regardless of last weeks incredible match up vs KC. Min is looking skiddish and Det is hot.
#3 Ari @ Sea - This pick is obviously based on Seattles complete lack of offense rather than the slightest bit of any decent def by Ari.
#4 Ten vs Den - I like this pick even though not great because Tennessee's defense has done average recently and is going up a greatly injured Denver offense at home.

Any other advice is greatly appreciated because I would like to pick up my DEF for this week as I'm sure others would too before everyone else in my league may snatch someone I may want.

Surprise sleeper for this week: Carolina vs. Jacksonville. Carolina is going to be mad and angry from the first two weeks. Cam has made a believer out of this team and yes Davis/Beason are on IR but I think they come out play hungry and with a purpose. J'ville will be starting either TO McNown or a fellow way more unpolished Gabbert. They probably give up a bit to MJD but I don't think it will be enough for Jax to win.

I do not expect Jax to put up more than 17 pts on Carolina thi s week. Their DBs have improved their play and they signed a very good interior lineman that should help the run D immensely. Besides a good time chewing O is like a solid D. That Detroit/Minny game bears too much of a trap game. Detroit will beat Minny but Minny will be able to put up 20-25 pts but still come up short, again. Don't fall into the trap.

My other surprise sleeper is Cleveland Browns.
