I am currently in first place (7-3) in a 14-team league in which the top 8 teams make the playoffs. Seattle DST is on bye this week, and there are several quality DSTs on the ww. Because our transactions are 5 bucks apiece, the DST I pick up is likely the one that I will roll with for the rest of the season and playoffs. So, I am looking for a DST that will produce a quality outing not only for the next three weeks but also throughout the playoffs.
Quality DSTS on the ww (remaining schedule, playoffs in bold):
Baltimore (@ PIT, @ SD, PIT, @ WASH, DEN, NYG)
Tampa Bay (@ CAR, ATL, DEN, PHI, @ NO, STL)
NYJ (@ STL, NE, AZ, @ JAX, @ TEN, SD)
Green Bay (@ DET, @ NYG, MIN, DET, @ CHI, TEN)
Cincinatti (@ KC, OAK, @ SD, DAL, @ PHI, @ PIT)
Scoring is as follows:
6 pt def/ret tds
1 pt sacks
1 pt TOs
6 pt shutouts, with declining points for increased PA.
Of the above defenses, who should I pick up? Schedule-wise, it looks like the Jets or Green Bay may have the most potential through week. With this scoring in place, I typically consider sacks to be the determining factor, which favors GB and Cincy. Baltimore is temping but they haven't been very consistent this year (although for what it's worth, they have the most points of the DSTs I am looking at).
Which DST gets my bid? And, with 243 auction dollars left, any idea how much to throw down?
