Worth picking up the Saints D/ST? Suspension lifted now.

Now the suspension has been lifted on the players supposedly involved in the bounty scandal has been overturned, does this make the Saints D/ST worth picking up over say the Eagles@CLE? Is it still too much of a risk since Payton and Vitt are still suspended?

Yes, but against the Redskins with a rookie QB with his first start in the mix could make for some big points possibly.

Eh maybe I'm over-thinking it.

The Eagles are facing a rookie QB in his first game as well in Weeden....and he doesnt have half the talent RGIII has.

Not to mention Philly has one of the leagues fiercest pass rushes....there an elite FANTASY D. start them with confidence.

I'd give it a week to see if RG3 is able to carve them up. I doubt even the players involved knew for sure if they were playing this weekend, so I'd just keep Philly for now. I have the Pats defense and wouldn't even waste the $1 it costs me to change them with the Saints for this week. Too many uncertainties in the D/ST.
