Defense Help -- Week 15

Post by dead_poet » Wed Dec 14, 2011 10:28 pm

I'm befuddled. I don't really have a "stud" defense on one league and could use your expertise. I'm not playing Denver vs. NE but am keeping them around for Buf and KC if I make it to the next round.

Currently I picked up NYG at home vs. the turnover-prone Rex Grossman and the Redskins but am having second thoughts. Despite JPP's dominance, the Giants have a leaky secondary and really give away yards and points. Other possible options out there:

Det vs. Oak (Suh back, no McFadden and Palmer has been turnover-prone and likely will need to throw to keep pace)
Atl vs. Jac (Gabbart)
Ten vs. Indy (It's Indy...plus they get Jac the following week)
Ari vs. Cle (Senaca Wallace in place of Colt)
Phi vs. NYJ (Eagles scored 21 vs. Miami last week)

Thoughts?

Im in the same boat, I have Denver, but I picked up Philly, had the Titans been available, I would have picked them up for this week, Indy is bad. Atlanta is a decent match up too, more so than the NYG vs Washington, IMO. The NYG are just too hot cold, but if you get them on a "hot" week, you'll be happy! If it were me Id go
1. Titans
2. Atlanta
3. NYG
4. Philly

What are your thoughts with Detroit? Most rankings have them listed the highest.

I personally wouldnt start them in fantasy. This week might be an OK match up since Palmer likes to throw picks and Suh will likely be pissed. Defensive and TE match ups are the hardest for me to get right. RBs, QBs, WRs seem easier, not sure why. So if I think Detroit is a bad start, they'll likely light it up, lol. Thats how it was for my team, consistently started the wrong DST and TEs. :wallbang:
