Week 5 Waiver Wire Defenses

Postby utility-hook » Mon Oct 03, 2011 11:59 am

Trying to get a jump on WW defenses for week 5. Most of the teams in my league are carrying 2 defenses plus 6 teams have a bye so there's not a whole lot of good choices. Here is what I have to choose from.

1.Hou vs Oak- Hou defense has been doing pretty well so far
2.Tenn @ Pitt- Another good defense and Steelers offense has been giving up lots of points to defenses
3.Cinn @ Jax- Another stout defense against a rookie QB.
4.Jax vs Cinn- Good defense but Bengals offense not giving up a whole lot of points to defenses
7.Arz @ Minn- Cardinals are getting turnovers
5.Ind vs KC- Chiefs offense is nothing to fear
6.KC @ Ind- depends on how well Painter does tonight
8.Minn vs Arz- getting to the QB but not a lot to show for it.
9.Sea @ NYG- 2 straight games with no ints for Eli. He's due for a bad game, right?
10.Oak @ Hou
11.Den @ SD
12.Car vs NO
13. Atl vs GB

thx for the help with mine. i also like cincy vs jax the best. Im in the same boat this week with many of the same options available and i think im gonna roll w/ cincy. jax just sucks and i think they'll give cincy some int and fumble rec opportunities. good luck

Hate to say it, but Oak @ Hou might be pretty viable with Dre out. Texans gonna run it.

I think out of all of those, I like the CIN vs JAX. However, I think that the Titans would be an option to consider as well

Help me out?

Cinci jax ones good but i think I'd take my chances with Tennessee.. Roethlisberger is hurting... hes getting sacked. Their o-line is depleted and not doing the best coverage either. And alot of fantasy gurus are saying to go with Tennessee aswell (can't remember where i read that though).

Thanks for the help with mine.

You guys can say Tenn all you want but there is nobody with a better match up than Cincy. I mean come on. Stop MJD and you stop the Jags...
