what DEF this week?

Postby petrieslastword » Tue Oct 09, 2012 3:46 am

Currently I have the Buffalo and ARZ defenses, though I'm hesitant to start either. None of the "best" defenses are available, so I'm wondering who you guys think might be worth starting based on matchups. Philly, Detroit, St Louis, Miami, Dallas? Someone else?

might take a look at the buccaneers, going up against a tame KC offense and the bucs have gotten turnovers every week.

I'd start Arizona. They have a good defense in real life, their front seven is nasty. They also have a good defense in fantasy football (ranked third in my league).

Defense is a tricky play based on matchups and other things, but I would ride with Arizona here. I do not think Buffalo is such a good offense that you should worry. They have been turning the ball over and giving up sacks, which is really what you are looking for.
QB: R Griffin III, A Luck
RB: A Foster, F Gore, T Richardson, K Hunter, M Hardesty, A Green
WR: V Cruz, M Austin, P Garcon, S Moss, B Hartline
TE: J Witten
K: Matt Bryant
D: ATL.

Yeah, being a Buffalo fan in Buffalo I guess I want to convince myself we are better than we are.

I'm glad I'm not the only victim of this. Finally got myself to unload Stevie Johnson, with Fitz throwing he simply isn't going to produce, and the Buffalo fans in my league overvalued him.

I'd probably favor ARI of your options although PHI would be a gamblers option too.

Can you help with mine?
