Picking up a team D

Postby Irish Drunk » Thu Sep 29, 2011 10:52 am

I've been struggling starting the NE DEF for the past 3 weeks and have now decided it's time for a change until they can get their act together. The following D's are available on the waiver wire for week 4 - note we get points for limiting yardage as well as points

SF (at Eagles)
HOU (vs Steelers)
TEN (at Browns)

I'm leaning towards TEN just because of the matchup but they don't have big play potential like SF or HOU. Who would you choose and why? Thanks for help.

As much as it pains me to say as a Steelers fan, I would go with Houston out of those 3. They are at home, and Pittsburgh is giving up like the 2 most points to team defenses this year. Roethlisburger will be forced to throw the ball a ton,...and INTs are sure to follow. For some reason he is being totally careless with the ball this year (5 picks already-only 7 all last year).

Ben will hold the ball far too long, the offensive line is an absolute mess and possibly the worst in football so he will take sacks. I think 5 easily. So there will be fumble opportunities as well.

I think the Steelers will score, but the will turn the ball over as well.

Thanks. I haven't seen Pitt this year so wasn't aware of that. Houston could very well pile up the sacks and their defense has looked impressive so far.
