Defense Strategy

Postby kingmillerus » Fri Sep 10, 2004 4:56 pm

Is it wise to avoid starting a player against your own defense or vise versa?

For exmaple .... do I NOT start Dallas D because I am starting Randy Moss this week? OR, do I NOT start L. FitzGerald because I am starting St. Louis D this week?

Just curious about peoples' strategies when it comes to this kind of dilemma.

Thanks.

Why would that matter? That has the same logic as debating benching Domanick Davis or LaDainian Tomlinson because the two play eachother in Week 1.

Start your best, methinks.

It's not same because one player's performance doesn't affect the other player's performance in your example.

If I start St. Louis D, expecting them to shut down the Cards, then maybe I shouldn't start L. Fitzgerald. Right? Otherwise, I will ultimately be rooting against one of my players.

You sound like primarily a fantasy baseball owner who is used to deciding tough matchups with one of your pitchers against one of your hitters am I right? Anyway it's not the same thing. As previous said just start your best available matchups.

Acutally, no. I've never played fantasy baseball, but it does sound like the same scenario. I know that's it's best to start you best available matchups, but I was just curious to see if there were any other theories out there on this kind of sitaution.

Thanks for the feedback guys.
