Fantasy Defenses for the Playoffs
My team is strong.....but I've had problems with defenses all year long. I'm currently holding onto the Panthers defense for this week (vs. Chiefs). I'm looking for a defense to use during the playoffs though. Here are the current FA defenses and their remaining schedules.
Panthers - Falcons, Chargers, Raiders
Eagles - Bucs, Bengals, Redskins
Jets - Jags, Titans, Chargers
Vikings - Bears, Rams, Texans
Chargers - Steelers, Panthers, Jets
Bills - Rams, Seahawks, Dolphins
Bucs - Eagles, Saints, Rams
Browns - Chiefs, Redskins, Broncos
Redskins - Ravens, Browns, Eagles
Chiefs (ROFL) - Browns, Raiders, Colts
Colts - Titans, Texans, Chiefs
Cowboys - Bengals, Steelers, Saints
Those games would obviously be Weeks 1, 2 and 3 of the FF playoffs. I'm not getting a 1st round bye....so I'm leaning towards Cleveland for Week 1 of the playoffs.....but after that I have no clue. So who would you pick up for Weeks 2-3 of the playoffs?
I'm looking at a similar issue since I've just punched my ticket to the playoffs and I've been streaming D's all year.
I'm leaning towards Bills (home v Seattle) week 15 and Colts (@ Chiefs) week 16. Its possible we'll see another QB go down like Cutler/Vick/Roethlisberger in which case everything could change.
I'm leaning towards carrying the Browns and the Redskins. The Browns for Week 1 and then the Redskins for the following weeks (Browns and Eagles).
Defenses are the one thing I never really look ahead to, unless there is a clear choice. Most of the other people in the playoffs are probably set, leaving the waiver wire fairly open, and opportunistic D/ST’s can change week-to-week.
Also, its mostly luck. Even though I have SF, they played NO last week so I went after CAR (vs PHI). They were taken, so I picked up NE (vs NYJ). 2 TDs and 5 TOs later, I’m glad CAR was already gone.
Jets have the best match ups out of all the available team D's I see. Browns are also a salty D regardless of their record.
Better defense for next week?
Jets, Browns or Bucs?
