Best DEF matchup this week

Postby rasmusDoh » Wed Oct 05, 2011 10:06 am

I dumped my Steelers DEF, and picked up SF on waiver.

Now i'm considering though, if i should pick some other DEF with a better week matchup=

49ers vs Bucs (highest fantasy scoring DEF by a good margin, available DEF that is)
Texans vs Raiders (Raiders allowed 31 pts this week, but that was against the Patriots..)
Titans vs Steelers (Steelers have sucked big time, both on offense and defense)
Giants vs Seahawks (Seahawks also suck, probably more than Steelers)

I think it's tough. Titans and Giants probably have better match-ups, but 49ers have scored more points, showing that they're for real (against SEA, DAL, CIN & PHI though).
And Texans got 12 DEF pts taken away by penalties Sunday, so they're pretty good if they stop those penalties...

Who would you go with?

I like the SF DEF, personally. I'd rank them as:
SF
NYG
TEN
HOU

There's also a number of good threads to look at on these boards:
Either one is probably way better than my 'gut'.

Help with mine? http://www.fantasyfootballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=501718

Nice links!

Both threads seem to favor the Giants

Again, however, the SF DEF have scored 15 pts / 37% more pts than the Giants so far.

Anyone else got some input on this? :)
