Goin GB against a shitty Pats offense


maharajagaipajama

A shitty pats offense without Mac Jones


lechrus

Their next two games after that look pretty good too


Xspike_dudeX

Underestimating hoyer the destroyer!!!


SolomonGrumpy

This is the way


morosco

Defenses against backup QBs always worry me because the offensive game plan tends to be conservative.


Moonshiner11

They fall behind they’ll have to sling it to keep up with Rodgers. At least this is how I’m justifying it. I think the Pats defense can only do so much with what they have right now. Lawrence Guy is out so that works in my favor


Infinite_Prize287

I've had a lot of success by looking at which defenses get the most sacks and then and stream a top 10-15 sacking team against a bad team or bad qb, bonus if it's a backup. It all comes down to sacks and pressures, so basically aggressive D line against a porous O line. Even Brady and Mahomes have bad games when they're pressured. Check also the health of that defense and offense, it makes a big difference, ie chargers last week

This guy streams.

Vikings yolo


jobjobrimjob

Feels like it’s either gonna be real good or real bad . I’m with you brother


Beautiful-Cow4521

Gone back and forth between giants and vikings… Settled on vikings. If Kamara suddenly goes off for 200 yards and a few TDs, so be it


Ankles45

He’s out


Beautiful-Cow4521

Makes my settle on Vikings even better…until Murray comes out of nowhere to run for 250 yards and 3TDs ☠️

I followed the experts and got not much from my Indy and Cleveland starts to begin the year. I streamed Philly last week and just keeping them until the wheels fall off. It’s not as fun to stream as I thought.


BrandonPointyCorners

I feel like it's more about picking healthy defenses facing bad offenses. And even then you can get screwed but it's all part of the game and part of the fun.


GivinItAllThat

I started LAC D/ST once. *Once*.

RIP


ni6ll

Same. -6 cost me the game


why_oh_why36

Someone dropped them and I couldn't overlook their upcoming schedule. I'm going to bite the bullet and carry two defenses for a week and see what they do on my bench.

What ever happened to quickonthedraw?

Asking the real questions... Is he safe?

I don't play weekly DST roulette. I play DST Frogger. The competitive advantage of streaming DST was identified at a time when FFB players tended to hold high-producing or highly-regarded DSTs without much regard to weekly matchups, which opened up an opportunity for the strategy of harvesting matchup advantages from among the good-not-great DSTs. Now a whole lot more people are streaming, which raises the costs of streaming and increases the risk of bad busts (which is the one thing you don't want in a roster spot that puts up negative numbers far more than any other). So people have, sharply, turned to holding two good, paired DSTs -- but that comes at the cost of a roster spot. Others regularly use waivers to grab their favorites -- which also has an argument in favor of it -- but that costs waiver capital. So now I look for DSTs that have some upside in their current circumstances, and who have a multiple-game stretch ahead of them that consists mostly of good matchups, and no bad ones -- one or two moderately-bad matchups are OK if the rest of the stretch, and the production and circumstances of the DST in question, look promising. Pay attention and keep adjusting as the season goes on, regularly looking for a good next stretch to jump to (and then finally devoting a roster spot to an extra playoff DST). That way, I get to devote the extra in-season roster spot and/or waiver capital to higher-upside positions, and keep building value into the top of the roster.

But not for kickers

“Fantasy points against” tables. Look for teams that allow the most fantasy points to defenses and select whichever defenses they’re playing against. Don’t just select any defense that’s high up in the table though. Make sure you’re selecting a decent defense. For example, I selected the Panthers D last week because Saints allow the most fantasy points to defenses. They scored 13 points and are a decent, mid-rank defense.


ydenber

Who are you selecting this week? Also how does chicago bears sound?


Zen_MasterX

Is Broncos D available in your league?


ydenber

No :(


Zen_MasterX

Which other DSTs are available in your league?


ydenber

Giants, ten, seattle, chargers (I had them last week and burned me…), jax , Carolina, Ari!


SolomonGrumpy

Ten is the safest bet


Joy_McClure

Bronco over jags/Viking hype trains?


Zen_MasterX

Broncos are a safe pick. Solid defense.


Zen_MasterX

Bears D are 3rd in pressure rate, 3rd in tackles for a loss, and 8th in turnover rate. But they’re not good against the run, so Saquon gonna eat. So, if you go with the Bears, you’re basically hoping for sacks and interceptions, which is a viable strategy since most of Daniel Jones’ receivers are out.


ydenber

Yes! This is exactly my rationale. I thought about the giants but they don’t really sack or intercept and chicago rarely throws


lechrus

Fields gets sacked a lot


FreeTouPlay

Who scores the least? Who gets sacked the most? What special team returns the ball more often? Has a qb been on a int throwing spree? Are there injured linemen? How are the match ups to wr? Is a good player coming back from a long break? Quite a few factors to choose from.


guitarpinecone

Wait should I be starting Bills d vs Ravens? I picked up Denver to stream, with medium confidence


cbaebae

Also the bills entire is secondary is just decimated with injuries, I wouldn’t feel great about starting them against Lamar when he’s been shredding teams


SolomonGrumpy

Bills D is great. Ravens offense is great. You would NOT want to drop Bills D, but lower expectations


Beautiful-Cow4521

No, not today.


Argyrus777

I went from cowboys week1 to Pitts w2 w3 Big mistake, had I kept cowboys I’d do better


Able_Awareness_6135

Pits vs Jets is a good play right? Right?


SolomonGrumpy

Steelers lost some great players. But the Jets SUCK. B+

SolomonGrumpy

Sure, bud.


Donquixotte-X

Dallas D anyone?


Beautiful-Cow4521

I’m going with them in a league. Full expect Wentz to find his form and burn me…but if he could throw a few picks and get sacked a couple times on the way I’d be happy


Beautiful-Cow4521

Rule 1) Pick a D playing a bad team, one that doesn’t score much or ideally turns the ball over a lot Rule 2) Pick a D that’s scores a lot of fantasy points Rule 3) Pick a D playing at home Rule 4) Avoid divisional match ups (they can be chaotic) Pick an available team that follows as many of the above rules as possible.


6gc_4dad

People are hoarding D’s in my league so I’m streaming Colts this week v TEN 🙏


Xspike_dudeX

Somebody dropped the bucs I scooped them up. No more dst hell after this week.


Patreonlyfans

I know this isn’t the best week to start Jacksonville but if they put out at least an average performance against Philly today I’ll be riding them for awhile
