I play in a 12x2 league where rosters lock the first week of the playoffs.  Playoffs start a week earlier because there are possibly 4 weeks of them and I was looking for good defensive match-ups.  I can't help but notice the schedules of Green Bay and Detroit.  

 

DST WK 13 WK 14 WK 15 WK 16
DET LAR @ARI @BUF MIN
GB ARI ATL @CHI @NYJ
 

While I'm not big on the slate of away games, that's potentially a pretty juicy combo there.

Have the broncos owned in every league I am looking good for the playoffs.

 

After this weeks game against the Steelers, which is no bueno, they have:

 

Week 13 - @Cinci

Week 14 - @SF

Week 15 - Browns

Week16 - @Raiders

 

Hard to beat that.....


I feel my football knowledge is vastly superior to my opponents. I also am just in general, a smarter person. These two things should allow me a huge advantage. But I've yet to be truly dominant.

I've been streaming other d's while sitting Denver. I know it seems crazy carrying 2 defenses but Denver has an amazing schedule and having a monster d performance can change a game.

Denver is gone all the leagues I play in, so i was looking at alternatives.  I also play in a league where rosters lock for the playoffs, so having 2 defenses is actually advantageous.

It would come as no surprise that I've been content to roll with the Bears defense so far but they do face the Rams in wk 14. I've penciled in 4 matchups that I might be interested in as alternatives for that week and one of them was Denver's. Pittsburgh vs Oakland was another but now the Steelers are taken. But first I've gotta have Matt Bryant cover Zeurlein's bye. Once that's accomplished, i'll go shopping for a wk 14 defense with Bryant as ready cash.

 

(Yeah, the Bears face the Packers in wk15 but as they notched good FP production in the first matchup with GB, I'm gonna "stick with who got me to the dance." for wk 15.)

I actually have an open bench spot so I am just going to add Broncos. And hold all 3. I am also making a bid for Justin Jackson dropping McGuire. If an add/drop appears that I feel I should make I'll drop Pats. But at this point headed into playoffs it will take an injury (i have depth all around) or a dumb drop. Both are unlikely, I think.

This is who I picked up to cover for my Bears' wk 14 date with the Rams. The NO DEF has had good production over their past 5 games (15, -2, 9, 13, 15). That -2 outlier was against these same Rams.

Man...im in a bind because I had to roster certain players the last few weeks to eek into the playoffs.

Can you really trust detroit in the playoffs? Or the saints on the road against a potent TB offense? (Id also be starting Mike Evans against my own defense there)

Have the Bears.

Looking at carolina vs Cleveland
Maybe even arizona vs detroit.

Have the Bears.

 

 

I do carry some misgivings about my choice of the Saints for that very reason. But just as TB has its potent side, they also have their putrid side; and I have my fingers crossed that the clock for Winston taking his turn to turn into a pumpkin will once again be striking midnight in week 14.

 

Edit: It should be noted that TB is currently ranked the 3rd most generous to opposing defenses.

League A:  have Houston but was not big on their schedule.  That feeling has changed a bit with Philly faltering the only real minus matchup is Indy.  But I also snagged Denver off waivers just to hold onto.  

 

League B:  On bye this week but have the Chargers.  Not thrilled at all.  Can use them next week against the Bengals, but after that I have to find something else.  Saints are out there, but I don't like the matchups.  Best looking Def is the Jags who get the skins and fins in 15-16.

Speaking of the Saints, I was afraid to look at the numbers after seeing the start of the Cowboys-Saints game; but when all was said and done, they turned in another 15 point performance. Those 7 sacks sure helped. I do wish that the Saints were a little stronger in the interception column for when they face off against Winston and the Bucs in week 14.

The Seahawks get the Niners for our first round of the playoffs. The Pats get the Bills in the championship game. That's who I am rolling with. This week is the final week of the season, so as long as my team doesn't score 87 points less than the 2nd highest team, I'm good

I had the Texans and grabbed the Broncos in the work league.  Texans schedule doesn't scare me as much after what Jacksonville just did to Indy, but man that Denver schedule is silky smooth.  

 

other league I had the Chargers, who have the Bengals this weekend, but I didn't trust them at all versus Chiefs next weekend.  Was able to grab the Jags who looked much better against a good offense last week and have nice schedule next week and championship week vs Skins and Phins.  Rosters lock in this league so I had to make a move.

Chris Harris being out for the season is a negative for the Broncos. I picked them up in 2 leagues for their nice schedule. Options are limited in free agency so may just need to roll with them.

I dropped the Chargers in 1 league as I was in track to get a bye and their week 15/16 isnt as easy. Naturally I missed out on a bye due to Keenan Allens lucky TD catch and I really wish I still had their D for week 14. Broncos it is.

I also grabbed Tenn in 2 leagues. Jax/NYG/Wash is looking pretty tasty.

Holding TEN for week 16 game against WAS ( Sanchise), but may drop them for Cleveland vs Cin (Driskell) or Dal vs TB (Winston).

yeah, anybody playing washington is looking better and better...they're down to the 67th offensive lineman, have zero at wide receiver and are featuring "butt fumble" at QB (although there was rumor that Kap was a thought).  It may not get sweeter than that.

I love the Titans W16 matchup vs Sanchez and the crumbline line. I'm not so sure about their W15 matchup with the Giants who have been looking much better. 

 

Speaking of looking better, the Bills are not the easy stream against team they were thought to be earlier with Josh Allen back. I originally was planning on rolling out Detroit W15 but don't think I can chance the Lions anymore vs dual threat Josh Allen. 

 

Currently own the Chargers who are a very good defense but don't have the best schedule W15 vs Chargers and W16 vs Ravens.

I like the Saints. I think this is a low scoring game relative to expectations.17 mph winds and light rain are in the forecast. Next TB gets Bal and Dal, the #1 AND #2 pass defenses, on the road in weeks 15,16. I think TB is a team to completely avoid in the fantasy playoffs. Meanwhie every fantasy website is calling for picking up Godwin and whatshisname. Relax, don't do it...

As much as it pains me, I even picked up the Giants D to start ag Sanchez this week. I’m benching my Rams, second highest scoring defense, because they are playing Bears in Chicago with Trubisky supposedly back.

Week 14 performance:

 

CHI DEF 20

NO DEF 9

 

It had occurred to me that the Rams offense might not turn out to be so fearsome in the Chicago cold, and I'd noted that Winston wasn't throwing the interceptions that he had been earlier in the year.  And the CHI DEF had shown in week 2 that they could face Rodgers & co and still put FF points on the board. But once i had pulled NO off the wire, I wasn't able to keep from feeling committed to using them.
