    No stone unturned: DEF sleepers 

    Whether you’re in the finals or the semis this week, now is not the time to remain blindly loyal to the defensive unit that’s taken you this far. It’s certainly tempting to stick with what works, but given that DEF is by far the most opponent-dependent position in fantasy football, it’s more than worth it to check the waiver wire for defenses with juicy matchups.

      Here’s my dilemma, heading into the finals…

      We have at QB:

      Jay Cutler vs. Minnesota
      OR
      Matt Moore @ NYG

      At running back, pick 4:
      Maurice Jones Drew @NE
      Jamaal Charles @Cincinnati
      Ahmad Bradshaw vs. Carolina
      Jerome Harrison vs. Oakland
      Quinton Ganther vs. Dallas
      Maurice Morris @SF

      At WR, pick 3:
      Vincent Jackson @Tennessee
      Devin Thomas vs. Dallas
      Chris Chambers @ Cincinnati
      Dwyane Bowe @ Cincinnati
      Mike Thomas @ NE
      Justin Gage vs. SD

      Thanks dude, as always.

      Hey guys! First time to your blog and love it! Nothing fancy just great infomation! I am in the championship in my league and need some advice.

      QB- Schaub at Miami or Mcnabb vs Denver

      RB- Barber At washington, Maroney vs Jville, Snelling vs Buffalo, Grant vs Seattle (Pick 2)

      TE- Finley vs Seattle or Witten At Washington

      By the way I am a huge Packers fan and follow the team very closely. I have seen what Brian brohm can do against 2nd and 3rd stringers during preseason. IF he gets the start on the road in the dome at ATL you have to play ATL D. Last week ATL played another inexperienced QB in Sanchez and the Jets and they shut them down! They will dominate Brohm! Only reason he is still in the league is because of what he did his junior year at Louisville! He is horrible, play ATL D and win your championship!!

        I have some similar issues at RB.

        Maroney vs. Jax
        Barber @ Wash
        J Stew @ NYG
        P. Thomas vs. TB

        • Brandon Walsh 3:25 pm on December 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          Pick 2.

        • Brandon 12:12 pm on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

          I like Jonathan Stewart and Laurence Maroney this week, even after hearing that Fred Taylor will be playing. The weather looks pretty nasty in New England and they could run the ball a lot with Maroney.

        Digger-tough call Miami run D makes me go Schaub as Mcnabb wont Have to pass to beat Denver, Grant is a no brainer, WASH pass D helps Finley over Witten and Marion over Maroney
        Good luck

        BrW-
        P Thomas vs TB’s Pass D
        Stewart looked great last week
        GL!!

          Stewart is really the only one not handcuffed but faces the Giants who play big when it counts. Bell around the goal line for PT? and they may rest PT
          Barber may be a better option

      • Brandon 12:05 pm on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        I like Matt Schaub, Ryan Grant, Jason Snelling, and Jermichael Finley this week. Laurence Maroney is a solid play too, but with Michael Turner out and the bad weather in Green Bay, I just see those two (Snelling and Grant) having a bigger game.

    • Digger 4:46 pm on December 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I think Thomas is a good play for you as he has started to get the majority of the carries. I would lean towards Maroney as well!

      Hey guys, great blog! I am in the semi finals this week and need help with D/ST and TE,

      BUF vs. ATL
      or
      NYG vs. CAR

      and

      D. Keller (NYJ) vs. IND
      or
      K. WInslow (TB) vs. NO

      Both D/ST and TE have performed good for me this year but can’t decide this week.

      Thanks!

      • Brandon 12:00 pm on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with the G-Men for your defense and Kellen Winslow as your tight end. Good luck!

    • Digger 6:05 pm on December 26, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      I think you defense is a no brainer you have to go with NYG. I think ATL scores alot of points because Buffalo’s Offense is gonna look horrible! Now you TE decision is super tough! I go with Keller but no real reason on why!

    • Jonathan 11:45 am on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

      Hey man, got a question. Considering im not sure if Peyton will play the whole game and Big Ben is playing the Ravens D. What do you think?

      Roethlisberger vs. Baltimore

      or

      P. Manning vs. New York Jets

      • Brandon 12:00 pm on December 27, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Go with Big Ben, who carries less risk and plays arguably a softer pass defense.

    2008 Team Defense Power Rankings 

    Power rankings for other positions

    Here are the rankings for team defenses going into the 2008 season. As you can see, the perennial teams at the top of this list (Chicago and Baltimore) seem to be on a downward spiral, with the new powerhouses of Minnesota and San Diego leading the way this season. With team defenses though, even more so than with tight ends, you definitely don’t want to rush when drafting one. If you don’t get at top tier defense around the 10th round or so, I’d suggest holding off until one of your last picks to take one. The difference between 75% of the defenses is so small that it won’t have much affect on your season…plus if you’re really into weekly match-ups, you could always pick up a defense each week based on the team they’re playing and hope it works out.

      I would like more of an explanation about the Titans being #6 I don’t understand that one at all. Beyond Haynesworth, what do they have? I would put them down near #15, with the Bills

    • Brandon 9:45 pm on July 9, 2008 Permalink | Reply

      @Mark: Well, they were the 9th top scoring defense in the NFL last season in terms of fantasy points, and barring injury or suspension, Haynesworth should be in there for every game this season, boosting them a few spots. Like I said in the introduction though, the difference between most of the defenses is so small that it doesn’t really matter.

      Vikings #1, thats all I needed to read. Kudos. Ok Bears #5, kudos again.

      @Mark: How about that Titans defense?
