      This week looks rough, with me having Ronnie Brown out. I (so far) put Jonathan Stewart in his spot. I have 2 RB positions to fill. I have J. Stewart, Moroney, McCoy and Reggie Bush. I thought Stewart and Moroney, with McCoy in the flex. But Saints play Tampa, so maybe Bush instead of Stewart. What do you guys think?

        I’d actually replace Laurence Maroney with Reggie Bush, so you have McCoy, Bush and Stewart.

      Anyone else out there starting Detroit defense against the Brownies this weekend? After seeing that dreadful performance against the Ravens on Monday, I love the Lions against the coming-off-a-short-week-of-rest Cleveland Browns.

      would you start detroit D over indianapolis D?

        I think I would actually. Although the Ravens didn’t look all that good last week against the Browns, I think they have a heck of a lot more potential (against the Colts) than the Browns do against the Lions, who have actually been a pretty good defense over the past few weeks.

    Week 10 Defenses to Consider 

    Here’s a quick list of teams that are playing some of the lesser offenses in the league this week and who could be available in your league in case you were looking for a plug-in (with the percent owned in parenthesis):

    • New Orleans (99%) @ St. Louis
    • Minnesota (97%) vs Detroit
    • Baltimore (96%) @ Cleveland
    • Denver (90%) @ Washington
    • New York Jets (71%) vs Jacksonville
    • Atlanta (70%) @ Carolina
    • San Francisco (70%) vs Chicago
    • Miami (53%) vs Tampa Bay
    • Tennessee (22%) vs Buffalo
    • Oakland (5%) vs Kansas City
    • Kansas City (3%) @ Oakland

    Unfortunately, most of the defenses matched up against the worst teams in the league are already owned in most leagues out there!

      I dropped the Falcons and picked up the Titans v. Buffalo… they have another juicy match-up in Week 14…

      I’m not high on ATL in facing the solid Carolina RBs after allowing 17 pts to the hapless and hopeless Redskins.

        I normally played Phili or GB as my defenses.. but GB has let me down in too many “easy” games… I may go with Baltimore vs Cleveland this week as all the other top matchups are taken.

      What do you think of the Cardinals D/ST going up against the Seahawks this week? I wanted to pick up the Dolphins because they should beat the Bucs but the Bucs could still score at least a TD or two and get a decent amount of yards.

        I’d go with Miami. Even if they give up some points, Josh Freeman isn’t experienced enough and is almost guarenteed to make a mistake or two, which could lead to a defensive touchdown. Plus, if your league awards for special teams scores, you have Ted Ginn returning the ball.

          Thanks, Brandon. You’ve yet to steer me wrong 😀

          I’d have to disagree. The Cardinals as a team have forced 3 more TOs than Miami and are a threat to block a kick every week as well as giving up far less points than Miami. Sure Miami will outscore them if they get ST TDs but with 2 on the year, you can’t count on it. I do agree that freeman merely was a fluke but I think the DST upside goes to the Cardinals anyway.

          The great part about Arizona’s matchup this week is that we know they have a huge advantage on the line. When they played Seattle earlier this year (27-3) they had Hasselbeck running around like a chicken without a head. Hasselbeck got sacked 5 times (and near sacked another 8) lost a fumble and threw an INT. He had a completion % of only 34 and the team as a whole only had 128 yards. And this was when Warner was in a slump.

          Add in the fact that Hasselbeck re-injured himself against the Lions and now has a sore shoulder to go with his broken ribs. The coach himself stated that Hasselbeck is currently too sore to throw downfield (as his stats from last game show). I mean he didn’t even crack 100 QB rating against the freakin’ Lions! He still hasn’t finished a full practice since his injury. Look for Arizona to blitz like madmen the whole game.

          As a team, Seattle has played 5 different OL lineups in its last 8 games. The left side of their OL is in complete shambles with their two best tackles out for the season. They simply can’t protect Hasselbeck as is. Add the fact that they have a 30th ranked rushing offense in the league and I’ll be surprised if they can even get 200 yards against Arizona.

          Also, since both Miami and Arizona are at home it is a good idea to look at how well the teams they are playing do on the road. The Seahawks have lost all their road games on the year and have only had more than 300 net yards in one of them. TB has also lost their 3 road games but have scored more points and averaged more yards in their losses.

          In short, I think Miami’s DST is the safe play but I think Arizona has way more upside.
